I've been to a ton of concerts. From Aerosmith to Alan Jackson to PFR, I've witnessed a ton of different groups live. In all that time I never did get a front row seat (I was close at the PFR concert). I can say that no more. My first front row seat was at a Doodlebops concert in Lake Charles, LA and I have to honestly say that it easily fits into my top five favorite concerts. The live show is great, and your children will love it. If you ever get the chance to check out the Doodlebops live, don't hesitate to get tickets. They put on a great show.
Now to the album, which is great. The songs are primarily short, spunky, and easy to sing. They are also highly addictive. You can't imagine the looks that this man of thirty gets when he sings "Get On The Bus" or "The Bird Song." Even slower tunes like "I Want To Be Bigger" are infectious. My daughter (she's five) enjoys "We're The Doodlebops," "Hey Moe," "Queen For A Day," and "Cauliflower." Actually, she enjoys the entire album. Deedee Doodle has a strong, jazz-injected voice that would stand up to some of the top torch singers of today. Rooney is more toned down, and his vocal strengths are showcased best in songs like "The Bird Song." Moe has a wonderful voice as well, but if you ever catch him live, you'll see that dancing is his forte. He's also the most interactive with the kids (at least at our show). When he gave my daughter a high five, you'd have sworn that Jesus had just come back.
If you're a fan of pop music or just enjoy infectious, catchy tunes, "Rock And Bop With The Doodlebops" will fit perfectly into your musical arsenal. If you have young children, I highly suggest you check this album out. The songs are fun for the whole family to sing.
