Thunder and Sunshine's funky tunes are geared towards the WHOLE family & not just the littles (with nary an Old McDonald in sight- hurrah!). In writing the album, Esther was influenced by many performers, from Sesame Street & The Electric Company to The Sugarhill Gang and Sly and the Family Stone. You'll hear sounds from the 70's & 80's in each song and be moving to the beat before you know it... promise! We also loved the multi-media aspect: the band incorporated video of kids being interviewed by various puppet friends (created by the talented Jeff Lewonczyk) throughout the set.
