"Hot on the heels of winning a Grand Prize in this year's John Lennon Songwriting Contest, North Carolina's favorite power pop band for kids, Big Bang Boom, is poised to come front and center on the national stage with the September 18 release of their third studio CD, Because I Said So!
Comprised of three devoted dads who just happen to be seasoned professional musicians, Big Bang Boom is know for laying down solid, hard-rockin', parent-friendly music. As children of the '70s and '80s, with influences ranging from the Bee Gees and KISS to Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, and U2, Big Bang Boom writes music that's all about what makes pop music popular, cleverly mixing pop, alternative, hip-hop, country and other styles . As a rule, their lyrics are written from a child's perspective, something that comes naturally to these dad-musicians, who quite pragmatically insist that this makes the "messages" in their songs more palatable than they would be if voiced by an adult authority figure.
Previous Big Bang Boom recordings include Songs Your Mom Will Like (2010) and Why Can't I Have Ice Cream? (2008). Because I Said So will be available online at www.CDBaby.com and iTunes."
What we thought: This CD was SO MUCH FUN!! It's fantastically silly lyrics and poppy beats are fun for the whole family to dance and sing along with. I so wish these guys were touring the Texas coast...I bet the show is AWESOME! The songs really get the audience involved and that makes the CD all the more fun to listen to:) This is definitely one of our new favorite (and most requested:) children's CDs! ABCD Diaries gives "Because I Said So!" an A+!
