My four year old has loved The Fresh Beat Band since it first started! He has been a loyal viewer and was looking forward to their upcoming tour concert. Sadly due to me not moving fast enough the show that is scheduled to be near us has sold out. He has been disappointed but I admit that he was excited to receive The Fresh Beat Band: The Wizard Song DVD to preview today!
The Fresh Beat Band are off to see The Wizard, played by music superstar Jason Mraz, in the brand-new hour-long special The Fresh Beat Band, “The Wizard of Song,” premiering TOMORROW Friday, Jan. 27, at 1:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.
When Marina gets swept up into a windstorm she lands in a musical version of Oz! She meets kid-sized Juniorkins, Glinda the Good Witch (sarah Chalke), and a cupcake-making Bad Witch! As Marina travels along the yellow brick road to get to the Wizard of Song (Jason Mraz), she meets three new friends- a Scarecrow (Twist), a Tin Woman (Kiki), and a Lion (who Shout). Glinda the Good Witch reveals to Marina that she had the power all along in her sparkly shoes to return home. Reunited with her friends, Marina realizes there’s no band like the Fresh beat Band.
What We Thought:
This was so fun to watch. My four year old never left his seat for the entire episode and my one year old always stops to dance to the singing. They both loved seeing Twist, Shout,Marina, and Kiki dressed as the Wizard of Oz characters.
Also Wanted To Add:
In advance of the Fresh Beat Bands’ nearly sold out nationwide concert tour, Nickelodeon will release the first-ever The Fresh Beat Band soundtrack – The Fresh Beat Band: Music From The Hit TV Show — available on iTunes and in stores everywhere on Tuesday, Jan. 31.
The Fresh Beat Band: Music From The Hit TV Show is the highly anticipated first soundtrack for the popular preschool group who are gearing up for their first 15-week, 95-show live tour kicking off Feb. 2 in Anaheim, Calif. The album features 19 catchy, preschool-friendly tracks culled from three seasons of the live-action TV series that teaches kids about music appreciation and how to express their feelings through movement, song and instrumental music. Both the soundtrack and the tour will showcase the Fresh Beats most popular songs including, “Here We Go,” “Stomp the House,” “A Friend Like You,” and “Just Like A Rockstar,” which peaked at number-one on the iTunes Children’s Songs chart.
