The Dirty Sock Funtime Band DVD and CD Review...

"As seen on Nick Jr.’s ‘Jack’s Big Music Show’ …
ROCK YOUR SOCKS OFF (AND SHOE LEATHER, TOO!)
with THE DIRTY SOCK FUNTIME BAND’S
SOCK-A-DELIC CD & THEIR FIRST DVD!

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."

What we thought: OMGosh!!  Rarely do I start a review that way, but really...this has been on of the most fun CD/DVD reviews the kiddos have had:)  They have requested to watch and/or listen to this combo set nearly every day since it arrived 2 weeks ago!  That is pretty impressive.  The band really is a sight to see...they are super high-energy, which of course they kids LOVE and their songs are funny and catchy and off-the-wall...a fantastic combination for engaging the formative minds of young children.  This DVD/CD combo is highly entertaining and addictive.  I promise, your little ones will love it and you will have the songs pleasantly stuck in your head all day:)  ABCD Diaries gives the DVD and CD from The Dirty Sock Funtime Band an A+!

Buy It: Find both the CD and DVD on the band's website and download a free summertime track while you're there!
