“I like this music, Mommy!” I heard from the backseat when Big Bang Boom’s ‘Because I said So’ came on in the car.
My preschoolin’ son has been jamming to Big Bang Boom driving back and forth from school for the last week and when the music turns on he smiles.
My son takes his rock music seriously, asking for certain songs when we do a family jam playing Rock Band.
“That one! That one!”
I am a child of the 90′s and I love that Big Bang Boom reminds me of fun bands like Blink 182, Eve 6, and all of that early 90′s rock and hip hop I grew up with.
Seriously, listening to these guys is just like catching my friend’s garage band play at the local coffee shop after high school.
These guys are not only veterans of the kid music scene but have also performed for decades. Turns out Chuck Folds is the little brother of Ben Folds and has spent years playing in bands along with his fellow BBB members Steve Willard and Eddie Walker. So you know they know how to rock a crowd.
The songs are written for the elementary set but can appeal to the parents too, as the angst of teenage years resounds in songs like ‘Are We There Yet’ and the title track “Because I Said So” just like they resounded in the accoustic jams and drum-beating anthems of my own younger years.
Here’s a chance to rock out to Big Bang Boom’s ‘Make Me’. Who hasn’t thought that to a parent demanding something of them?
Big Bang Boom has also created a Kickstarter program to help cover costs for promoting their music.
If your kid grooves to this band as much as my son does, the $10 donation will get you an autographed copy of their new release ‘Because I Said So!’ and a $20 will get you autographed copies of all three of their albums! Bigger donations will land you even more fun, so take a look at their campaign and consider supporting an indie band spread the fun even farther.
Because I Said So is available starting today at www.CDBaby.com and iTunes.
