If you’re looking for music to listen to with your kids, infused with Ska, Punk, and Country, then look new further as Jelly of the Month Club have arrived upon the scene. These seasoned musicians produce an eclectic sound that draws upon the greatest hits of Sesame Street, Schoolhouse Rock, Madness and Tom Waits, to name a few. The educational and groovy harmonies provide a new outlet for entertaining the children of Southern California. Most bands mining this vein of children’s music produce forgettable fluff. Kids deserve to have cool music that rocks and swings, early exposure to exciting music inspires creativity in everyone. This band delivers the goods.

With a newly released full length and online single: Brand New Friend, the party is ready to start for music lovers of all ages. Insanely fun rhythms and storytelling composition provide seriously good tunes for the entire family. Join in the beach bonfire of clever wordplay and cool catchy melodies. This is music for kids that actually rocks, open for all ages 1 to 100. The enjoyable soundscapes are filled with wild punk spirit. The same spirit that inspires young bands to get out and play for the first time, because it’s something they love to do.

The creative forces behind Sublime (Todd Forman & Bud Gaugh), The Ziggens (Bert Suskana), Zen Robbi (Mic Dangerously), and Mr. Crumb have come together to offer the ultimate rock n roll show for kids. The band members spent their earlier years honing their chops in legendary funk, punk, and surf bands. Their mission is to get the kids dancing and spark interest in all genres of music. Their all-ages shows and schoolyard live appearances are inspiring the youth to one day start their own bands. So do yourself and the kids a favor, grab this awesome CD. Everyone will be dancing and rocking in no time.

I’ve been involved with underground art over the last 15 years and currently run the subculture e-zine “Fear & Loathing LB”, with an eye to all things that captivate, entertain, intrigue, and push boundaries. My musical experience began as singer/writer in the late 90’s with punk rock miscreants The Prostitutes and writing commentary/reviews for Now Wave Magazine. Long Beach is one of a kind with its nonstop pulse and remarkable artistic/subversive offerings. I love discovering new music and the talented individuals that bring it to life.
