Grandkid Rock by Daddy A Go Go....Review and Giveaway!

As you all well know, the kids and I love listening to music, particularly in the car.  We are often on the go and we like something fun to listen to on our journeys.  Right now in spot number one in our car CD player is the latest offering by Daddy A Go Go, Grandkid Rock.  Based on the opinions of A, W, R and their chauffeur (me!) I would say this one will be in this coveted spot for quite some time!  Before I get into the specifics of this new favorite, I want to share how I introduced it.  When I popped it in, I told the kids it was Grandkid Rock, music sung by a Dad.  Well, the next time they got in the car, "W", said to me "Mom, I want to hear Grampy John's music".  Grampy John is my dad, their Grampy, who passed away.  It took me a minute but I realized they meant Grandkid Rock!  Now, when we get into the car they always ask for Grampy John's music I know just what they mean!  Here is the scoop on Daddy A Go Go in case his work is new to you...

Multi-award-winning children’s rock and roll recording artist Daddy A Go Go, a.k.a. Atlanta stay-at-home dad John Boydston, enthusiastically announces the April 19 release of his eighth CD, Grandkid Rock

A leading advocate for rock and roll in kids’ music, former CNN producer John Boydston has been “rocking out and raving on” for families since 1998.  The acclaim has been tremendous.  Five Daddy A Go Go CDs have made Amazon.com’s “Best of the Year” critics’ list.  Come on, Get Happy (The Best of Daddy A Go Go, Volume I) was included this past November on the AOL ParentDish “Top 25 Albums for Kids” list.   Monkey in the Middle and Mojo A Go Go were honored with the prestigious Parents’ Choice® Award.  The Washington Post credited Daddy A Go Go with helping change the face of kids’ music by moving “playroom tunes into the pop-rock era.”   Kids’ music authority Warren Truitt (About.com/Children’s Music) characterized Boydston’s albums as “full of puns, parental pop music winks, and headbanging riffs … John Boydston lets the jokes fly and the rock and roll thunder.”  Daily Candy Kids

A “greatest hits” album comprised of 16 remixed tunes that John Boydston considers his “rockingest rockers” from six previous Daddy A Go Go CDs, Grandkid Rock cheerfully continues the Daddy A GoGo alterna-rock tradition of what Stomp & Stammer described as “upbeat, wildly entertaining rave-ups, sing-alongs and silly puns that have endeared the group to kids (and their parents) nationwide.” While Boydston’s most recent release, Come On, Get Happy, focused on softer songs for younger children, Grandkid Rock goes the other direction, rocking out for the bigger kids with lots of electric guitars, drums, driving rhythms and power chords.
(Boyd’s Tone Records, $11.99, run time 40 minutes, for ages 3 – 10). declared, “Not some watered-down musician for wee ones, Boydston isn’t afraid to shred some serious guitar riffs.”

This CD is fabulous.  It is 100% listenable even for the grow-ups.  My boys LOVE the song "I Want to Be an Action Figure" and "Eat Every Bean on Your Plate".  I get a big kick out of  "I Caught My Granddad Watching Cartoons" and was pleasantly surprised to hear a lovely "rocking" rendition of Louie Armstrong's "What A Wonderful World".  The music is just so much fun and catchy.  When I was just typing those song titles I found myself singing them in my head and swaying at my PC....Thanks Daddy A Go Go!

Grandkid Rock is fun for the whole family and a CD I highly recommend!  Pick up your copy today on Amazon...
