What's the story?

Oklahoma band Sugar Free Allstars' third album, ALL ON A SUNDAY AFTERNOON, is a soulful, upbeat release with 10 bluesy-rock tracks about sweet moments and memories of childhood. Featuring guest singers like Jack Forman of Recess Monkey and Keller Williams, the album offers some positive messages with music that will surely get little feet moving and grooving. The album comes with a 40-minute concert DVD, too.

Is it any good?

As masters of live performances for pint-sized audiences, Sugar Free Allstars create kiddie-themed tunes with music that's always fresh, fun, and family-friendly. The songs on All On a Sunday Afternoon are a hip concoction of bluesy-rock that kids and parents can sing and dance to while enjoying lyrics about childhood moments like getting a new sibling, chasing down the ice cream man, or having the courage to get rid of a naptime teddy bear. From the rousing "Gotta Get Up" to the bittersweet "Ready to Give Up Teddy," this album leaves out the overly sugary sound that's often found in kids' music and keeps it super cool and groovy.
