Biography

"I can't tell you how many times my son listens to your CD, thank god it's so good!" - Parent & BK Fan, NYC
------
Acclaimed singer/songwriter Bari Koral has joined forces with some of the best players on the downtown NYC music scene to bring you the Bari Koral Family Band--rock songs for kids that parents dig. Kids can ride airplanes, drive cars, play in a rock and roll band, ride the waves and dance all day in this high energy show for the whole family. "Dad's new car" from their highly acclaimed CD is a Children's Music Award Finalist and "A Day at the Beach" was a hit this summer for 20 weeks on XM KIDS. The band has been featured in TIME OUT KIDS, DAILY NEWS, NY 1 NEWS, FOX NEWS and more--many say this band is making some of the best children's music out there today. The Bari Koral family band have lots of earnest songs about animals and cars which are destined to become instant kid's classics. However, many other songs have plenty of adult appeal including live favorites such as "Dance all Day," which seems to draw from equal parts Blondie to The Hokey Pokey.

A successful touring singer and songwriter, Bari developed the idea of a family music band after routine visits from her niece, then 4 years old. "I would comb nyc looking for an activity we could enjoy together. She always responded to good music but she wasn't ready for a full on adult concert. I was looking for a musical environment we both could enjoy, and finally I just decided to create one."

The band's fanbase ranges from 1-81. "The concerts are totally interactive. We give kids a lot of credit when it comes to knowing quality music. It's the parents that thank us again and again too, because they have such a good time with their kids and enjoy the tunes as much as their kids do! Plus, for the adults, it's just so much fun them to see their kids having such a good time."

In addition Bari on vocals and guitar the band features celebrated jazz musician Dred Scott on bass, who has appeared with Norah Jones and Rickie Lee Jones and Eric Halverson on drums, currently the drummer for the Broadway hit musical Xanadu.

Lyrics

Dance with my Head

Written By: bari koral

I dance with my head and I shake it around
I dance with my head and I shake it around
Dance with my head and I shake it around, up and down and all around.
SHOULDERS!
You know I dance with my shoulders and I shake 'em around
I dance with my shoulders and I shake 'em around
I dance with my shoulders and I shake 'em around
left and right and up and down.
HIPS!
You know I dance with my hips and I shake 'em around
I dance with my hips and I shake 'em around
I dance with my hips and I shake 'em around, front and back and all around
LEGS!
You know I dance with my legs and I shake 'em around
I dance with my legs and I shake 'em around
I dance with my legs and I shake 'em around, front and back and up and down

--let audience pick other parts to dance, we usually get our bottoms in there and our whole body.

Candy Land

Written By: Bari Koral

there's chocolate, and candy
oh it's everywhere
all along candy lane

gum drops, lollipops, and if you want, climb up on a candy cane

chorus:
do you see, how sweet we could be...

take a ride, up high, in the cotton candy sky
or stroll along lemon lane
do the twist with a licorice stick
and drink the strawberry lane

chorus:
do you see how sweet we could be
come on' come on' come on now

and if you swim, you can dive right in
off your gingerbread boat
go deep, go deep
cause you can't sink
in an ice cream float!

chorus:
do you see how sweet we could be
come on' come on' come on now
