The Dirty Sock Funtime Band...Review & Giveaway!

My kids and I have been dancing fools lately!  The cause of our recent dancing frenzy?  The Dirty Sock Funtime Band of course!  This fun, goofy, silly and high energy band has given me and the kids plenty of dancing fun.  This quirky group sounds like a rock band and is totally danceable all while singing about things that are entertaining to the kids (and adults too!).  We have been rocking out to their CD, Sock-A-Delic  and singing and dancing along to their hilarious DVD, The Dirty Socktime Band which features music videos and 3 episodes of this fun group.  Here is the scoop plus a little taste of what you can expect from this band....


Music Everywhere from Dirty Sock Funtime Band on Vimeo.
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.

That same “total entertainment” concept of The Dirty Sock Funtime Band’s live shows comes through loud and clear on the band’s CDs and music videos. Both their Sock-A-Delic CD and The Dirty Sock Funtime Band DVD inhabit a world where anything can happen. Timing is everything for this band, and the timing of the humor and the smartness of the lyrics are only surpassed by the first rate quality of their singing and playing.  It seems The Dirty Sock Funtime Band must have a pipeline straight to the cleverest part of a kid’s brain. With an effortless vivacity, the group romps through every style from country and western to funk, rock, and beyond on Sock-A-Delic.  The Dirty Sock Funtime Band DVD combines live action comedy, animated videos, and puppetry, plus interactive dance-a-longs and sing-a-longs, to capture and maintain kids’ interest. The DVD is filled with a stunning array of music videos and also includes three pilot episodes for TheDirty Sock Funtime Band TV series.


Fun, right??  I have to tell you that A&W laugh hysterically at this DVD.  I mean laugh so much they clutch their sides because they are in stitches.  This band is fun, silly and I am so glad to have been turned on to them.  They are fun for me to listen to as well and anything that makes my kiddos laugh with such gusto gets the green light from me!  Click here to purchase the CD and DVD and to download a free song!
