The Fresh Beat Band is more than a television show on Nick Jr. promoting teamwork and music. They are a quartet with an album out and a group of four musicians on tour from the summer of 2012 until November 24, 2012. Fresh Beat Band tickets bring Twist, Marina, Shout, and Kiki from the small stage in a television studio based in Los Angeles to live stages throughout the United States, sometimes proving so in demand FBB chooses to add a second show.
The group is so popular because they are not merely another kids group reworking contemporary hits for the kids in the audience, but a quartet of talented performers crafting new songs with as an infectious a beat and as energetic a rhythm as the pop hits on the radio today. Also, the songs have lyrics that teach a lesson that kids and the adults can derive both enjoyment and wisdom. On the show Twist is the DJ, Marina is the drummer, Shout is the keyboardist, and Kiki is the violinist, and they do take up these instruments on occasion when performing live. However, for the most part they leave the instruments behind to sing and dance as one unit with perfectly choreographed precision.
This tour has been scheduled because of the incredible success of the television show and the one album released to date. The Fresh Beat Band: Music from the Hit TV Show became available for purchase on January 31, 2012 and features the most popular songs written and recorded during the program’s three year run, from 2009 to 2011.
The live show is going to include those same tracks, beginning with the FBB theme song and ending with “Great Day”. No track is much longer than two minutes, so parents can be sure their children’s attention will not wane as the family finally gets to go out to a concert together. Expect the Fresh Beat Band to take the time to deliver a few moral messages as well and watch for surprise appearances by Harper the Pizza Maker, Melody the Smoothie Maker, and Reed the Guitar Player.
