Merry Christmas with Big Bang Boom

In our mobile concert hall, AKA the car, we’ve had a variety of Christmas music playing. My son’s passion right now is singing “Jingle Bells” so I find copies of it and play it for him to sing along with.

This year he is really excited for the man in the big red suit, so I am learning about seeing Christmas through a kid’s eyes this year.

We’ve showed our love of Big Bang Boom here before, so I was excited when we heard there was a Christmas release of some original music by the band and leapt to get a copy.

We jammed away as we drove the half hour to a playdate, listening to the five tracks more than once on the way.

My favorite song is the first, a peppy lament about a child who didn’t watch out, apparently cried, pouted and beat up his little sister and Santa just passed him right by- a strong lesson for the little and mischievous.

My son rocked out the most to ‘It’s Christmas Time’, complete with bells and rockin’ drums.

If you are a rock-lovin’ family or just want something fresh to add to your Christmas playlist, I highly suggest giving this album a try.

You can listen to “The Holidays are Here” on the band’s website.

You can by the CD or download the album as an MP3 here on the band’s site and also at CD Baby .

Big Bang Boom rocks his world

“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.

Find Big Bang Boom on their website and on Facebook.
