The Not-Its! America's best dressed and most rockin' kindie band! They give kids their very first, epic rock show experience. Their high-energy performances make the ENTIRE family want to dance along with them and jump up and down. They have created a movement - a family connection that brings out the kid power in all of us.... The Not-Its! Nation!
Their contagious sound is unique in the realm of kids' music: crunchy, rockin' guitars combined with smooth, four-part harmonies. It's all nestled within perfectly crafted pop gems that just happen to be about every-day kid stuff (space travel, temper tantrums & the first day of school).
The Not Its! are Sarah Shannon (former singer of 90's Sub Pop band Velocity Girl), Danny Adamson (rhythm guitar), Tom Baisden (lead guitar), Jennie Helman (bass player) and Michael Welke (former drummer of Harvey Danger). As parents, they add 10 children amongst them to the crowd, ranging from ages 2 through 9. Since 2008 they have been poised to keep their families and yours dancing along at their live shows as well as to their recorded albums, and with their much anticipated fourth album, "KidQuake!", it is clear they have no intention of slowing down!
"It's extremely fun to play music that resembles what we used to play and listen to in our twenties, but with kid- friendly lyrics. And it's great to not be playing at a bar until 2am!" says Sarah.
Time Out New York Kids say The Not-Its! are "a kindie music equivalent to a summer movie blockbuster!"
"Their debut CD makes me want to pull over to the side of the playground, open the hatchback and turn up the volume as high as it'll go to share the music with the masses of kids. Yes, it's that good" proclaim Cool Mom Picks.
So grab your pink & black tutus and skinny ties and join The Not-Its! Nation!
