ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Five stars!" - FiveStarsReview.com

"Billions of stars!" - Astronomy Weekly

Snow Day! is not a holiday album, and it's not a 'wintertime' album... Snow Day! is just the next great CD of super huge kids' music by Eric Herman and the Invisible Band. The album embodies the thrill and fun of anything that is an unexpected break from the normal routine, much like the snow days Eric grew up with in Buffalo, NY.

Eric Herman now lives in the Northwest and performs cool tunes for kids in creatively entertaining shows around the country. Eric's music has been heard nationally on PBS Kids and XM Radio and his second CD, Monkey Business, was called "one of the best kids records ever" by Victory Music magazine. John Wood of Kidzmusic.com called Monkey Business "inspired, clever and nicely-produced" and The Buffalo News calls Eric "an all-around entertainer" with "the genuineness of John Lennon and Randy Newman." Eric's video for "The Elephant Song", from his first album, The Kid in the Mirror, is one of the most popular of all children's music videos online, with over 10 million views on YouTube.

Snow Day! picks up where Monkey Business left off with 12 amazing tracks of upbeat and fun songs, including the disco-rock cooker "Dance Like an Animal", the surf anthem "I Can't Wait for Summer", the reggae howler "Hot Sand", and "Cowboy Bergaleoukaleopaleous", a country fried tale about the most unsung hero of the Old West. Snow Day! also has two bonafide toe-tappers in "No Big Deal" and "When I Grow Up", as well as a unique and compelling version of "This Little Light of Mine", which is a duet between Eric and inspirational vocal powerhouse Jen Marco Handy.

As he did on his first two albums, Eric again teamed up with popular funny poetry author Kenn Nesbitt for the words on four of the Snow Day! songs. Eric also co-wrote the song "My Lucky Day" with award-winning children's music performer Eric Ode. Snow Day! also features notable guest appearances by Branson mainstays The Hughes Brothers and the acclaimed singer/songwriter duo Border Crossing on "Cowboy Bergaleoukaleopaleous". Folk-rock troubadour Vince Martino plays some sweet harmonica on "This Little Light", and Eric's wife Roseann joins him for the hilariously "Batman"-esque "Steve the Superhero".

Throughout Snow Day!, Eric demonstrates why he is becoming one of the top artists in the genre, with his tremendous sense of humor, his remarkable vocal and guitar ability and his talent for writing and arranging sophisticated but also very accessible songs that kids and families really love and want to hear again and again.

Who: Eric Herman and the Invisible Band. He sounds like a Disco/Electronic Yosi. I'd love to see a full band show sometime.
What: The CD Snow Day! Their third CD filled with 12 songs many have funny zinger at the end (like Melony Ring or When I Grow Up.) The songs are different enough you won't find yourself feeling TRAPPED listening to the CD. There were two positive thinking songs, No Big Deal and My Lucky Day, that I think are good for kids to hear. The album ends with two beautiful songs, Hide and Seek With the Moon and This Little Light of Mine. I wish they weren't at the end of the CD.
Where: A great CD for the car or home. Dance Like an Animal would fit in at school or at a kids dance party too.
Positives: GREAT Liner notes. Compared to the previous CDs it seems like Eric is coming into his own now. The CD is very professional and he seems to have found his audience. I wish him the best of luck.
Things to grow on: I would probably put the songs in a different order and I'd love for him to write a few Universal values songs, like about sharing, caring, love, etc. I think that teaching these values to kids though song is a wonderful thing.

So in a nutshell I really like Snow Day! And my guess is you will too.

Rebecca Packard, The Entertainer

Eric Herman Rocks!
Fans of Herman’s last two children’s CDs know they can count on Herman for fun music that transcends the usual insipidity spoon-fed to kids and painfully tolerated by parents in other children’s albums. This new album starts out rockin’ with the song Melody Ring and keeps up the energy in a variety of styles (with a couple slower songs that save the energy from getting over-the-top.) Snow Day makes for great car listening, a boon anytime of year. Musically, the CD couldn’t be more satisfying. Herman and the band perform rock flavored with disco, calypso, surf music, country-western and more with consistent skill and enthusiasm.

A mixture of Shel Silverstein and The Beatles.
It's taken me awhile -- three albums' worth -- to put my finger on how to describe his music, but I think I've got it -- it's a mixture of Shel Silverstein and the Beatles. If you're a big Shel Silverstein fan, definitely check this out.

Non-stop fun with an enormous variety of musical sounds.
Non-stop fun with an enormous variety of musical sounds and styles, silly voices, and wacky lyrics. There is a lot going on in Herman's music, but it's fun and enjoyable, especially for kids. I would suspect that even an 8-year-old who forgot his Ritalin would sit still and give his undivided attention to an Eric Herman performance. Herman is a great example of the "goofy dad" sub-genre of children's music, with the "high-energy, laugh-a-minute approach". His writing is clearly geared toward elementary-age kids, but there is plenty here for parents to enjoy, too.
