Former CNN producer John Boydston gave up his job long ago to become a stay-at-home dad and leading advocate for kids rock and roll music and are we glad he did! John Boydston's, aka Daddy a Go Go, newest CD is called "Grandkid Rock" and is comprised of 16 of his all-time best tracks from his 7 previous albums, many of which have won awards in the past. Five of his past CDs have actually made Amazon.com's "Best of the year" critics' list. He started out in 1998 when his sons were ages 3 and 5 and now his sons are teenagers and helping out in the band! Talk about being family oriented! The tracks on "Grandkid Rock" are suggested for children ages 3-10 and have a total runtime of 40 minutes.
Its not your typical children's tunes as it has a feel of classic rock and yes, in my humble opinion, a slightly country feel in some of the songs. However, I do love the guitar music in this and I can see parents that are fans of classic 60's rock loving it just as well. LOL, my parents always told me I loved rock music as a kid and I was the crazy little kid that always danced and sang as much as I could when I heard my favorite songs and I tell you, this would probably be on my list of favs as well. :)
Filled with humor and rhymes, I'm sure everyone in the family will enjoy singing along and dancing to this one! Go give Daddy a Go Go a visit and listen to his samples online and you'll see what I mean!
