I've gotta say, 2014 has been pretty light on the new music for Halloween... but that doesn't mean that there aren't a few worthy new additions to your 2014 Halloween Music Playlist! One such entry comes courtesy of the ever-busy and ever-awesome MISTA COOKIE JAR AND THE CHOCOLATE CHIPS, presenting a surf-tastic little number that manages to recall THE MUNSTERS, while serving up a colorful little animated video to go along with it. "Halloween Every Night" should be your jam right now, and it easily slides in here for 31 Days of Halloween on THE ROCK FATHER. Check out the video below...

FPW2014It's National Fire Prevention Week (Oct 5-11, 2014), and this year a couple of familiar names have teamed-up with the National Fire Protection Association to help spread the word about safety to the kids. RECESS MONKEY and PBS KIDS regular Mr. Steve (SteveSongs) have contributed songs, videos and dance moves to Sparky's Schoolhouse, the educational home of Sparky the Fire Dog. There's printable activities, resources for educators, free downloads and more, all available via this link. Want some jams right now? Check out a couple of videos below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER!

There's a lot of legit rockers making great music for the whole family these days, and that makes for some exciting options for listeners young and old. 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...

TALES FROM THE MONSTROSITY SCROLLS by San Francisco's RAINBOW BEAST & THE ROCK BAND LAND ROCKERS secured it's place as one of my favorite family albums of 2014 even before this year actually began. In fact, it was just shy of a year ago that the February release first entered my ears, and in the time since, the catalog of Rainbow Beast has only grown - fueled by the imaginations of the children who attend the Rock Band Land camps and classes that are presented by the San Fran "creativity school." While monsters and other supernatural creatures have infiltrated the music of Rainbow Beast many times in the past, one recent entry has risen forth to snag a space in the 2014 edition of 31 Days of Halloween here on THE ROCK FATHER. Feast your ears upon "The Ghosts of the Sea" and consider it as a worthy addition to your Halloween Music Playlist this year...

It is officially National Talk Like A Pirate Day here at Rock Father HQ (though I probably will not be talking like a pirate), so I'm gonna share a couple of sea-worthy goodies for all of you, starting with "Pirate Girls" - the new single and music video from THE BOO HOO CREW. Clint Perry and the crew have been cranking the family-friendly Pirate rock for a few years now, so it's just right that they're back with more for 2014. Check out the video below...

The lullaby album of the year has officially hit the streets (and the nursery) as TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE ROCK STAR - LULLABY VERSIONS OF FAITH NO MORE (my favorite band of all-time) is out now. To celebrate this epic collection of 12 FNM classics (and one cover) that have been re-worked into "lush instrumental versions" for baby, the folks at Roma Music Group have teamed-up with THE ROCK FATHER for a giveaway! Three (3) lucky readers will receive a digital download of the new album, with one (1) also receiving a $25 Amazon Gift Card! Enter below...
