Daddy A Go-Go CD Celebrates 10-Years of
Rock and Roll for Kids w/new CD release
“Rock of All Ages”
Atlanta, GA (February 2008)
Boyd’s Tone Records announces the release of “Rock of All Ages,” the newest CD by Daddy A Go Go, a.k.a. Atlanta stay-at-home dad John Boydston. It’s his sixth CD of rocking tunes for the pre- and post-K crowd, and he has hit his stride with his latest release. “Without really trying,” Boydston says, “what I think I’ve come up with is my Classic Rock tribute to kids and modern family life.”
Some of the new song titles seem to bear this out: “Get Yer Yo-Yo’s Out,” clearly a nod to The Rolling Stones classic live LP ‘Get Your Ya-Ya’s Out.’ Then there’s “John Barleycorn Must Dye,” the ballad of a boy who lives to tie dye, and a wink to Traffic’s classic LP ‘John Barleycorn Must Die.’ Throw in eight more original rockers, a little Chuck Berry and a smokin’ version of ‘What A Wonderful World,’ and you have a rock and roll CD literally of, by, and for all ages.
The Family That Rocks Together: Playing and singing on Dad’s records is nothing new for Boydston’s two sons, Jake and Max; they’ve been doing it since they were pre-schoolers. But now they’re old enough and good enough players to perform with Dad on stage. “They are the band,’ Boydston says. They’ve already played some high-profile shows, including a showcase gig at Austin’s hipster-fest South by Southwest in 2007. Then it was back to Texas for the Austin City Limits Festival. They’ll be in Athens, Ga later this month. The newly formed ‘Daddy A Go-Go Band’ is Max (13) on guitar & vocals, Jake (16) on bass & vocals, and family-friend Jonathan Paz (16) on drums.
And while Daddy may know best, sometimes children are the real teachers. Boydston explains: “The energy these kids bring to my songs when we play them live on stage reminds me why I started doing this in the first place -- the sheer joy of rock itself and the fun of bringing it to a young audience that may be hearing a rock band or real rock and roll for the first time. I was lucky that I passed that on to my kids, because now they’ve passed it right back to me when I needed to relearn it. They really motivated me to start writing some new songs.”
“Rock of All Ages” is a triumphant return to form for Daddy A Go Go. The themes of innocent fun, dancing, singing, and general rock and roll silliness clearly echo those of “Cool Songs for Cool Kids,” Daddy A Go Go’s debut CD in 1998. That CD put Daddy A Go Go on the Kids Music Map after making https://www.tradebit.com’s Top 10 Best Kids CD’s of the Year, a feat accomplished by all but one of his CD’s so far. He’s won two coveted Parents Choice Awards and a ton of other accolades along the way, and is a regular on XMKIDS. And like “Cool Songs” the energy on the new CD is highly infectious. If you don’t believe it just let your kids give “Nana-Nana Boo-Boo” a spin (one of several kids sing-along songs) and after the 20th repeat playing don’t say we didn’t warn you. (Don’t worry parents – there’s cowbell and a wah-wah pedal on it for you).
Newsweek describes Daddy A Go Go’s music as “wonderfully warm and upbeat…the perfect soundtrack for washing the mini-van or just bopping around the kitchen.” The Washington Post credits Daddy a Go Go with helping change the face of kids’ music by moving “playroom tunes into the pop-rock era and leaving the childhood jingles of Barney and Disney in history''s nursery.” And Billboard says Daddy A Go Go’s alterna-rock vibe “sets the band apart from the vast majority of preschool targeted children’s music.” As the New York Post succinctly comments, “this is one hip daddy!”
