You've got members of Harvey Danger and Velocity Girl in THE NOT-ITS!; CASPAR BABYPANTS is really just Chris Ballew from The Presidents of The United States of America; Kay Hanley from Letters to Cleo writes music for DOC McSTUFFINS; fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff wrote music for SUPER WHY!; and the list goes on. Now comes THE SQUEEGEES, a Los Angeles-based band with a couple of high-profile members in Pierre de Reeder (RILO KILEY) and Chris Phillips (SQUIRREL NUT ZIPPERS), who together with Samantha Tobey (a former "Mommy & Me" music teacher) and crew are gearing-up for the release of their second album of kindie jams, VEGGIE SOUP. Check out their new video, "I Can I Can" below...

The Squeegees - Veggie SoupVEGGIE SOUP seeks to continue The Squeegees' mission to "spread happiness but also enrich and educate children and their families," with fun songs in both English and Spanish, dealing with topics such as environment and conservation, healthy eating and exercise, music and movement, multiculturalism and social enrichment.

The band has just five days left to go in a KickStarter campaign to offset production and promotion costs for the new record, which can be pre-ordered as one of the many available "perks."
