Charlotte, North Carolina (PRWEB) August 10, 2004
Kids too young to enjoy the rock spectacles of today are granted a full-access, backstage pass to the jamminÂ concert designed and performed just for them by the hottest kids rock nÂ roll band around: the RAGGS Kids Club Band, a real-live touring troupe.
The brainchild of advertising executive Toni Steedman, the RAGGS Kids Club Band integrates positive messages with fun characters Â each with his or her own personalities, qualities and differences Â working together to create a hand-clapping, toe-tapping, tail-wagging good time kids will enjoy again and again. Their live concerts, which can seen at malls, fairs/ festivals and daily summer shows at The Palace Theatre in Myrtle Beach, SC, can now be viewed at home with the ÂRAGGS Kids Club Band Pawsuuup! TourÂ music video, the first in a new line of videos, DVDs and CDs featuring the popular band.
ÂRAGGS Kids Club Band Pawsuuup! TourÂ recently received The National Parenting CenterÂs Seal of Approval and the iParenting Award. It is recommended for ages 2-8 and will be available on August 17, 2004 for a suggested retail price of $12.98 for the DVD and $9.98 for the VHS. A CD of all the terrific songs from the concert will also be available (SRP $9.98.)
The program is approximately 55 minutes and the DVD has an extra 40 minutes of bonus material including: four karaoke-style songs, a meet the band section and video instructions for the bandÂs secret handshake.
ÂEntertaining children is a great responsibility and privilege,Â says Steedman, who originally created bandleader RAGGS, an imaginary dog, for her daughter as carpool entertainment. ÂOur core message is teaching the value of music in the lives of children. We are truly committed to the absolute highest standards of entertainment.Â
Steedman strived to make the RAGGS Kids Club Band members distinctive individuals beholden with classic traits reshaped by contemporary interests, values and issues: RAGGS, the founder of the band and the glue that holds it together, is a true, loyal friend; TrilbyÂ®, the furry pink bass player and super athlete, lives by her motto TNT, ÂTrilby, Not Trouble;Â Pido, the big yellow surfer pup, plays the drums and serves up healthy meals for the band; B. Maxwell Oliver, main songwriter and keyboardist, is wheelchair-bound and never misses a minute of the action while always instilling the power of positive thinking; and Razzles, the bandÂs manager, is the brains of the group and keeps the show rockinÂ and rollinÂ.
Viewers will enjoy clapping and dancing along to the 50Âs rock anthem ÂWag & Wiggle,Â the rap-ballad TNT (TrilbyÂs Theme) and the soulful ÂRAGGS Kids Club House.Â For a change of musical pace, thereÂs the Italian-themed ÂFuniculi Funicula;Â hip-hoppers will jam to ÂRazzles Rap;Â and funkers can get down to the ÂRAGGS Rock.Â The show is intermixed with music videos of the bandÂs hits ÂYo Yo Hey,Â ÂRock-n-Roll BabyÂ and ÂThe Drummer With the Dinner,Â as well as backstage interviews and footage of their antics and adventures at the beach and in New York City. ItÂs a non-stop musical ride the whole family will enjoy.
Future releases include ÂUnleashed,Â music videos mixed with live action, which will be available in October and ÂHoliday Jam,Â a live-action episodic program filmed on the ski slopes of Colorado and based on the bandÂs already award-winning holiday CD, is due in November. Each release will include a DVD, VHS and accompanying musical CD.
