Listening Lounge: Backseat Driver Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

"With a 2012 Parents’ Choice Silver Honor Award for their new CD Backseat Driver proudly in hand, longtime Philadelphia favorite The Cat’s Pajamas is poised to take the rest of the country by storm. Backseat Driver harnesses The Cat’s Pajamas’ high-octane, live sound with 11 electrifying songs that virtually jump out of the speakers to get kids and their grownups moving.
Acclaimed for giving their rocking shows a musical comedy twist, these cats have more than 'just another album' up their sleeve. Backseat Driver is an instant Cat's Pajamas dance party — a wild, wonderful world of stories, dance, and music, with the hottest rhythm and the coolest horn line in the business, backing the group's signature 'Andrews Sisters' harmonies on songs ranging in style from rock and blues to rap, jazz, Latin and more."

My kids and I had the opportunity to review Backseat Driver.  The funky, jazzy rhythms and cool sounds were unlike anything we've heard before.  I liked the unique tunes and the cool lyrics found in the songs.  There were even songs inspired by my childhood favorite nursery rhymes such as Humpty Dumpty.  Another particular song we liked was How Many People In A Family, which I thought had a very cute message to it.  It's a great album to bring fun, funkiness, and joy to any moment!
From the band shell at Central Park to the International Children's Festival at The Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, The Cat's Pajamas has received rave reviews galore.  In addition to Backseat Driver, the band has previously released a string of award-winning albums, including Reading Rocks! (2011 Kids' Music Award), Goin' Bananas (2002 Children's Music Web Award), and Cool Music for Kids (2000 Children's Music Web Award).
Backseat Driver is available online at www.howlinrecords.com, amazon.com, cdbaby.com, and iTunes.
