CD Review - Laughing Pizza

About the Band
With energetic, fun-filled songs for children and parents alike, Laughing Pizza will bring joy to families everywhere with the highly anticipated digital release of their new album Let's Go Play on Tuesday, February 23, 2010.  With natural musical talent and original pop songs, Laughing Pizza's new album provides energetic, dance-filled tracks, while promoting positive messages about family togetherness, love and the importance of being active.

Laughing Pizza is helmed by mom and dad, Lisa and Billy, who are award winning song-writers with a #1 Billboard Dance Hit and credits with the Olsen Twins and the Cartoon Network show, Big Bag, as well as having written and produced an entire math CD titled Make it Count which has been used to support the curriculum in the nation's public school systems.  Rounding out the Pizza pie is fourteen-year-old daughter, Emily, a multi-instrumentalist who plays flute, drums, guitar and piano.  Together they create fun, inspiring (and educational) music for the whole family!  The talent, love, and energy that Laughing Pizza has for their music truly shines through on the new album. By their combining classical musical training (Julliard, Berklee) with an ear for infectious pop, Let's Go Play is composed of 14 new playful rock n' roll tracks for music lovers of all ages to sing and dance to.

Laughing Pizza has appeared on the Today Show and performed at the White House three consecutive years (most recently with Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers).  They have released two DVDs and 4 CDs on their label "Little Bean Family Entertainment" and are the proud recipients of six Parents' Choice Awards.   Let's Go Play is the follow-up to their 2008 album Love Makes a Family and their song "On My Way" was recently chosen by Julie Andrews and her daughter Emma Walton Hamilton to be featured in "Julie Andrews' Collection of Songs, Poems, and Lullabies" (Little/Brown).

Check your local TV listings to catch Laughing Pizza on the PBS station nearest you.  Let's Go Play will be available on iTunes and previous CDs and DVDs are available on, among other national retailers.

My Take on the Book
I was intrigued by a family band, in a day when families do not always live and experience the same things together. I think it is great to see a musical family making great music and having fun at the same time.

I had never heard of this band in the past, but I am always open to trying something new as are my girls. When they listened to this CD, they seemed to like it and had fun dancing to the music around the house.

There's a lot here that people can enjoy! The songs are upbeat and fun and it makes you want to tap your toes if not dance full out. 

Overall, the CD & DVD were great!

If this CD sounds like one that you would like to have as a part of your own collection, you can find it on Amazon!
