More about the Album and its Creators:
Jason and Amy Didner got their inspiration to write this album's lyrics together last winter from their then-one-year-old daughter.

Jason is the host of "The Cool Rockin' Daddy Video Show" on Montclair, NJ's TV-34 channel and streaming live at coolrockindaddy.tv. Amy interviews popular children's musicians on the show.

Songs on "Everyone's Invited!" offer learning for kids at multiple levels, often within the same song.
- "Five Sea Lions" teaches older kids (and grown-ups) the difference between sea lions and seals.
- It teaches younger kids to count down from five!
- "Everyone's Invited!" is a rock-n-roll album at its heart, using different styles to carry the different stories in the lyrics:
- Ramones-style punk energy on "Jungle Gym Jamming" and "Down By the Bay."
- Reggae/ska vibe on "Five Sea Lions" with Jason adding Santana/Clapton influenced bluesy guitar breaks
- Grateful Dead/Phish type jamband grooves on "My Glasses" and "The Pick Song," driven by the tight rhythm section of Ross Kantor on drums and Judy Helbig on bass guitar.
- Rootsy folk on "Mimi the Ladybug," featuring a mandolin acting out the part of the ladybug and her dancing feet.

Produced, engineered and mixed by Dave Cushing at Snowdome Studios, Montclair, NJ, a converted carriage house with a history back to the days of horse-drawn buggies.

Mastered by Scott Anthony at The Viewing Room in Springfield and Maplewood, NJ.

John Ginty set aside time after a tour of Canada as the Dixie Chicks' organist to fire up his 1969 Hammond B-3 organ and add his soulful sound to "Window of the Train" before flying to Los Angeles to record organ tracks for Steve Earle.

Running time: 37:31

Release Date: January 28, 2014 via Knock-Knock Records (owned by Jason and Amy)

Amazing CD for kids...and their parents!
We loved the message inherit in each of the songs: kindness, friendship, learning and most importantly for young ones…imagination. The songs are upbeat, fast paced and immediately bring to mind pictures of animals and inanimate objects having a great time. Loved the counting songs; must have for those trips in the car!
