Oh, how we love The Bazillions!
The Minneapolis-based kindie-rock band has been getting families’ toes tapping since 2010 with guitar-driven tunes and pitch-perfect harmonies with a touch of twang. (Do they remind anyone else of the Barenaked Ladies?)
And now they’ve put out their fourth studio album, Rock-n-Roll Yearbook, just in time to get kids excited to dive into the school year.
If you attended our annual Kidfest, then you heard a sneak preview of their catchy, soon-to-be educational hits, such as New Shoes. We’ve also fallen in love with their life-lesson tunes Take Turns and You Could Be the One.
Led by former teachers Adam and Kristin Marshall, The Bazillions hope this new album will help kids though one of the most exciting and anxious times in a young person’s life — the start of the school year.
The Marshalls started The Bazillions while they were both teaching at Kenny Elementary School in Minneapolis. Today they have two children of their own and perform hundreds of shows per year while also finding time to produce videos — for The Bazillions’ YouTube channel — that have been viewed more than 6 million times.
