Nobody rocks harder than Josh and the Jamtones. Period. Other bands are equal too but nobody surpasses the kinetic energy this band brings to shows and CD’s. Once they get moving this Jam is hard to stop! I’d class them sharing the most energetic kindie band title with The Not-Its (one of our favorites and awesome live shows!). These are bands that can rock out with anyone. Don’t just call it “kiddie music.” There is a whole lot going on here for the whole family! On their upcoming release Rocksteady, Josh and the Jamtones folk bring all that power once again. Not only that but I think this is their most cohesive effort to date. Don’t misunderstand me. The music is always infectious, horn powered and rocking! While I loved the music I found the narration on their last effort Bear Hunt a little distracting. However my kids found it hilarious. So-what-do-I-know??? On this one the whole clan is in agreement and Rocksteady has been sharing space in the much vaunted car CD player with Red Yarn’s upcoming release (review next week). The groves and vibes are so good on this CD it’d make Pooh forget about honey, Snow White forget about that poison apple and Scrooge a good tipper! Rocksteady is a infectious, skatastic driven, old school, original horn powered reggae music festival of kinetic joy! When it comes out GO BUY IT! The CD releases on August 21st and will be available at the Jamtones page plus iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby. Go support an independent artist today!!!
