Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that A Potluck is the perfect combination of kid-friendly lyrics and parent-approved music that helps kids and parents appreciate and see the beauty in everyday life and relationships. And of course, the music and content is fine for every age.
What's the story?
Los Angeles-based musician Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band release their third album, A POTLUCK, a melting-pot collection of eclectic melodies and kid-friendly lyrics that celebrate life, friendships, and connecting with the people and world around us.
Is it any good?
Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band (which includes his wife Alisha Gaddis) have cooked up a concoction of melodies and music that depict a day in the life of a child and the adventures and sounds of the neighborhood. The music bounces between kindie-rock and reggae beats, with fun-filled lyrics that kids will love singing, shouting, and giggling along with. From the poetic "Morning" to the rockin' "Lemonade Stand" and the utterly infectious "Tres Ratones," kids can imagine a day of adventure, and later settle down under the covers to the soothing "Night" poem. A Potluck gives a soundtrack to the pleasures and treasures of the everyday, and music to sing in appreciation of childhood and imagination.
Families can talk about...
Families can talk about ways that kids can use their imagination. How much time do you spend just playing without TV, computers, video games, or technology? What are some ways that your family can spend time together without technology?
What are some activities that you do in your neighborhood? Do you get together with other neighbors to celebrate holidays? Why is it important to know our neighbors?
How can you get to know the people in your neighborhood? Brainstorm ideas for a fun get-together or potluck.
