Album Notes
In the beginning, there was music for parents. Then, there was music for kids. And then a great war broke out; The War Over the Phonograph. This was followed by The War Over the 8 Track Player, The War Over the Cassette Player, The War Over the CD Player, and the War Over the MP3 Player. Tears were shed, ears were offended, families were torn apart. And then, a new dawn arose, and a savior arose, Kids' Night Out; purveyors of cross-generational power pop.

Frustrated by the chasm between children's music and parents' music, Jeff W, an attorney and musician, sought to create a new musical genre. Music that adults and children could listen to. "I can't take listening to kids' music anymore", says Jeff, "....and my kids listen to it over and over and over again. Why me? Why me?" Not surprisingly, Jeff's two children shared the same views about parents' music.

So, Jeff set out to write music that would appeal to adults and children, with infectious hooks, soaring harmonies and double-edged lyrics. Once the music was written, he and his trusty companion, Jim Culbertson, set off to record a CD. Jeff supplied the majority of the music, instrumentation and vocals and Jim utilized his sequencing and engineering expertise. The result is a sonic cornucopia. Rock, metal, modern folk, blues, polka and bluegrass all converge in one darned good record.

The music has been featured on the wonderful children's music radio show, Kids' Corner, on WXPN in Philadelphia.

Kids' Night Out relies on a variety of influences to make up its tasty musical stew. On Funky Penguin, you can hear Beatle-esque melodies and harmonies set to a Metallica-like guitar crunch. Crazy Dance features a heart pounding rockabilly beat, not unlike Dave Edmunds. Mommy to the Rescue is a soulful, blues-driven concoction, with a horn section influenced by Steely Dan and Blood, Sweat and Tears.

The result? Music that can be appreciated on a variety of levels; funny, mellifluous and dance-able, for children and parents alike. Families will heal, Ipods will disappear, and the world will be a better place.
