Dirty Sock Fun Time Band2
NEW YORK, NY (June 10, 2011) –Beloved by millions of families for their high-energy music videos on the Nick Jr. channel’s Jack’s Big Music Show, The Dirty Sock Funtime Band’s Sock-A-Delic CD and The Dirty Sock Funtime Band DVD showcase the band’s “We show kids that they rock” spirit.

The outrageous popularity of The Dirty Sock Funtime Band is easy to understand from a kids’ point of view, for their shows are interactive spectacles involving rock band, dancers, comedy, and costumes.  The band’s six-to-eight members really know how to fill the stage with action: it’s better than a three-ring circus. Each member has his or her own role to play and distinctive personality to project, but they all come together like clockwork.  And what a sound!  Their music is polyphonic to the max with melodic lines and supercharged rhythms weaving in and out like a great Dixieland band with everyone wailing on the final chorus.  The action onstage is as fascinating as a perfectly timed basketball team. The stunning impact of this stage energy is balanced by the cleverness of the compositions and the smartness of lyrics that offer large words and large ideas, all seasoned with the band’s own brand of belly laugh comedy.  The singing, the comedy, the playing, the dancing … it all fits together into one big kaleidoscopic thrill.

That same “total entertainment” concept of The Dirty Sock Funtime Band’s live shows comes through loud and clear on the band’s CDs and music videos. Both their Sock-A-Delic CD and The Dirty Sock Funtime Band DVD inhabit a world where anything can happen. Timing is everything for this band, and the timing of the humor and the smartness of the lyrics are only surpassed by the first rate quality of their singing and playing.  It seems The Dirty Sock Funtime Band must have a pipeline straight to the cleverest part of a kid’s brain. With an effortless vivacity, the group romps through every style from country and western to funk, rock, and beyond on Sock-A-DelicThe Dirty SockFuntime Band DVD combines live action comedy, animated videos, and puppetry, plus interactive dance-a-longs and sing-a-longs, to capture and maintain kids’ interest. The DVD is filled with a stunning array of music videos and also includes three pilot episodes for TheDirty Sock Funtime Band TV series.

Known as the highest energy kids’ rock band ever to break out of NYC, The Dirty Sock Funtime Band was voted “Best Kids’ Band” by readers of Time Out NY Kids. According to MTV’s Evan James, the DSFB plays “some of the most innovative and exciting children’s music EVER.”  CNN described them as “distinguished by rocking beats combined with silly, visual lyrics (think Muppets take MTV).”  FOX News declared, “Find out why kids, parents and critics alike are falling in love with the first real rock band for kids.”  Chris Barron, proud parent and lead singer of the Spin Doctors enthused, “Finally, a rock band for kids that really rocks!”

The Dirty Sock Funtime Band recently returned from their first overseas tour, performing for Navy families in Bahrain, Greece, Italy, and Spain, and they have shows scheduled throughout the summer and fall. The band’s next release, in fall 2011, will be an interactive e-book based on their song “Treasure.”  November 2011 will see the release of an all-new studio CD.

Sock-A-Delic and The Dirty Sock Funtime Band DVD previously received “soft” releases. Sock-A-Delic is now available online atwww.dirtysockfuntimeband.com, amazon.com, and itunes.  The Dirty Sock Funtime Band DVD is available exclusively at www.dirtysockfuntimeband.com.
