Album Notes
Praise for Peanut Butter and JAM…

2004 Parents’ Choice Approved Award Winner
2006 Children’s Music Web GOLD Award

"Like Phish for kids."

"Ranging from silly to serious to seriously funky, the tunes will make you feel cool again, and your kids will love them!"

From OLIVE HACKETT-SHAUGHNESSY, professional storyteller:
"Spectacular, really wonderful, yummy, gorgeous, smart, joyful...everything...bravo! I'm applauding."

"You’ll want to move along with Charity or just listen to her appealing voice, whether you’re young or old. Encourage your kids to dance, and make sure you join in the fun!"

Spanning every genre from bluegrass to funk to rock'n'roll to surf to meditative, PB&JAM hits a nerve with kids and parents alike. Kids love everything about the CD (to the point of obsession), and parents admittedly play it even when the kids aren't around. The music and lyrics are edgy, clever, real, fantastical and fun, and every song has accompanying moves and grooves. Push the furniture to the walls, clear the floors, turn up the volume, and boogie down together! You will feel the love, guaranteed.

Peanut Butter and JAM is the second offspring of San Francisco's most hip-happy family music group, Charity and the JAMband. It's a jamboree of dance-happy tunes meant for the whole family to share. "Our music celebrates the joy of childhood and family life," explains Charity Kahn, bandleader, songwriter, lead vocalist and keyboard player with the JAMband. Kahn, a mathematician, musician and mother of two young children, has published a book on the connections between math and music. Her music-activity Jamboodas classes in San Francisco are popular with parents, caregivers and kids. Kahn strives to spread joy, connection and family fun through song, dance and silliness. She's been rocking the kids ever since she became a mom.

Check out Charity and the JAMband's other releases, also available here on CD Baby: Rock Your Socks Off, The Birthday Suite, and Music for Movement with Children.

Kid Music that rocks! Can be played 592 time and won't drive you crazy.
I love this CD! My daughter listens to it over and over and over, and I am still smiling (as opposed to the stark raving insanity brought on by repetitions of other kid music.) The lyrics are truly clever, the music is easy for kids to dance to, and yet the CD has a real crossover appeal for adults. Now I give this CD as my standard birthday present (easy to keep in stock, easy to wrap, easy to give instead of last-minute runs to toy stores), and my friends love to Jam as well!

Amy Sparrow, Director, San Francisco Music Together

Funky, sweet, joyous, rockin', percolatin'... catchy like smiles and hugs
The BEST kids band out there!! PB and J, the latest from Charity and the JAMband is our key to happy fun. Influences are so rich and delightful, Chaka meets Tori Amos and goes to the bluegrass beach with Sly and the whole family. No one else is making music for kids and adults that is so universally appealing: clever, catchy and rife with musical texture!

Chrissy and the boys

Love it, play it AAALLLLL the time and still love it!
This CD is fabulous!!!! My 2 boys (41/2yrs and 2yrs and 2mnths) love it and play it all the time. And you know how often that is with kids, AALLLLLL the time! and I actually love it still. Tree House is one favorite of theirs and we now have a tree house because of that song! Goin Fishing is another and Scarf Dance is beautiful. In fact we love them all - there isn't one dud song. give it a try and you'll be hooked.


Great Quality Time! We rock together!
We love this CD! Both my 3yr old and 1 yr old love to rock to the music. I have never laughed so hard watching my kids dance! I have even put the title track on my mp3 player about midway through my jog - it puts a smile on my face just thinking about my boys!

Our new favorite (parents and 3yo) - groovy!
Our 3yo LOVES music, has participated in Music Together classes for years, and spends hours choosing CDs to play on his own player (where "Peanut Butter and Jam" now permanently resides). My musician husband and I never tire of listening (or dancing) to Charity's fantastic, fun, funky tunes. Hooray!!


"rock n' roll every body!"
We heard PB&J 1st on XM Kids Radio and had to buy the CD. We ALL(Mom,Dad 3 kids; 5, 2, 1,) love to Jam. The whole CD is FAB!

Happy Mom

Brings out the best in us!
"Peanut Butter and JAM" is 18 sweet, funny, fresh and soulful songs, all which are sure to leave a lasting impression on children as well as their very cool parents. If I'm quick enough with the PLAY button, I can transform my toddler's bad mood into a wiggly dance...with giggles and hand-clapping too. Charity is a brilliant songwriter, arranger, producer and musician. Bravo! We like funky!

Jim McCall

Scallopy and Funky, Catchy and Succulent
So you buy it for your kids, yet you find that it is broad enough to satisfy. Don't lose the CD - or your kids will go bonkers. Great searing harmonies are nice - Charity has an excellent voice. Some of the songs are pretty funny, too.

Faye Bildman

Fabulous; my husband and I listen when the grandkids are not around.
Most children's CD's get monotonous for parents. Not only do our grandkids love the songs, but my husband and I play the Peanut Butter & Jam when the kids are not around. I like to sing the songs with the kids.


Clever and Catchy
The whole family loves this CD -- my 15-month-old daughter, my 2.5-year-old son and my husband and I. We listen to it all the time. We took it on a long car trip and didn't even get sick of it. Highly recommended.
