Top 5 Things I Learned at the Fresh Beat Band Concert

So I was at the Fresh Beat Band concert on Friday, and expected it to be awful.  It wasn't, at least not entirely.  Here are my top 5 post-concert observations.

5: The Fresh Beats do exactly what you want from a band you only see on tv and don't follow--they play their popular songs and play them in a slightly different way than you're used to.  Of course, those popular songs appeal mostly to toddlers, but whatever.

4: When calculating how long it will take to get somewhere, factor in rush hour traffic. It took me an extra hour to get to the casino where the show was happening, which meant an extra hour in the car with the kid who was hungry, cranky, and anxious to get there.

3: A casino is a bad place to have a children's show--kids can't cut through the gamin areas, so it takes forever to get to the right section of the Mohegan Sun Arena.

2: I can enjoy anything if my kid is having fun... but I think he had more fun macking it to his friend.

1: This guy sucks no matter what the context.

Has anyopne else seen these guys in concert?  I'd love to hear your thoughts below.


  1. i'm now officially hoping that these kids hit puberty before my kid can be exposed to them.

  2. When I was a kid, my parents took me to Madison Square Garden to see "The New Zoo Revue" live. I imagine it was a lot like this, if the kids wore giant frog and hippo costumes. Also: I'm old.
