FULL DISCLOSURE - One of the guys in The Imagination Movers is a old and close friend of mine. I'm not trying to push the band, sell records or anything like that. Promise.
A few months ago I got an odd email from a buddy of mine talking about this new musical project he's involved with. Seems he and some pals in New Orleans - who all have small kids - decided that kids music sucks and they should make a "cool" brand of kids music.
Thus, The Imagination Movers were born. Six months or so into making a serious run at this, the band seems to be taking off. They have a CD, gig around Louisiana, Texas and Florida and are creating quite a buzz.
I don't have kids. I listen to music kids shouldn't hear. In general, I think singing about taking medicine and eating vegetables is lame.
But I bought the CD to support my buddy, and I've listened to it a good bit. My first thought is that it's pretty good stuff for kids music (to further my research I suffered through about 10 minutes of The Wiggles on the Disney Channel - they blow).
And I've played some of the stuff for kid-laden people I work with. The response there has also been pretty positive.
So I'd like to hear some feedback from the crowd here at Blogcritics if you care to comment.
Not a plug (the Amazon link is obligatory, of course), I'm just curious to hear what random strangers think about my buddy's project.
