We all know the incredible power of music. At home music is so important despite the fact that none of us are musicians, that we have daily dancing sessions to jump up and down and just express ourselves.Yes, have the little ones burn tons of energy in a fun way too. Doing this has enabled us to expose the kids to all kinds of music. Truth be told, the children tunes can get to us pretty quickly. This is why we have become fast fans of The Rattles.
Too cute, the bands is a lively bunch of animals that play music for children and you, it really is music to get up and dance along with.
The Rattles come straight from the swamps of Central New Jersey. They are four musicians and life-long friends – Gus (the goat), Kitty (the cat), Sal (the snake), and Hal (the hippo) – who describe their upcoming release as “the album we were born to make.” Their manager Benny (a dog) and a bunch of roadies (penguins) all named Elvis help The Rattles take their show on the road.
Their debut album contains nine songs: "Rattle On," "Lucky Sam's Banana Stand," "Shipwreck in the Sky," "Wavy Lane," "Goodbye Yesterday," "1-2-3 Count on Me," "R-A-T-T-L-E-S," "Monday Morning Drive" and "Apple of My Eye."
The Rattles will fullfill their destiny and release their debut album, “Rattle On” on September 25th. We can’t stop listening to it, and can’t wait for what they will bring us next.
This one of a kind group of animal musicians bring us a fresh, modern mix of classic rock and power pop, reason why their beats are compared to The Beatles. Their catchy pop melodies and feel-good vibes are sure to inspire lots of head swaying and booty-shaking from everyone.
The cover of the CD is a kid friendly, but the music definitively appeals to all music lovers.
The Rattles Band was created by Tony Caio, who is best known for his animation direction for well-known licensed creations like The Sneetches by Dr. Seuss, Curious George Goes to a Chocolate Factory for Scholastic, and Hollywood Betty Boop for Bally Gaming. He created The Rattles Band so parents and their children would have a way to connect through a family friendly music experience
