Biography

"Unfailingly entertaining songs and hysterical, gravity-defying dance antics" - Sunday Mail.

Fabio, Mario and Demilition B-Girl (aka Demi Sorono - So You Think You Can Dance Australia Top 4, 2008) are the 'Superheroes of Kid-Hop'. This award-winning act sold out 6 shows at the Sydney Opera House last year and have performed at some of Australia’s biggest events - including Adelaide Fringe, Darwin Festival, Fun 4 Kids Festival, Melbourne and Adelaide New Year's Eve, The Famous Spiegeltent and even the Big Day Out!

S O W H A T I S K I D - H O P ?
"A frenetic mixture of rapping, singing, dancing, DJ scratching and aerobics, all accompanied by Casio keyboards... The band's messages are overwhelmingly positive, from eating healthily to turning off the television to play outside" - dB Magazine, Fringe Review (March 07)

"At last children's theatre that is new and innovative! These guys certainly know how to entertain the kids and the adults too. The Casio Brothers & Demilition B-Girl communicate street wise messages to the kids through funky hip-hop tunes, creative break-dancing moves and oodles of Swedish humour!" - Carina Cargill, Events Coordinator, Moomba Waterfest.

After six sold out shows at the Sydney Opera House last year, The Casio Brothers were invited back for four shows at the Gorgeous Festival where the Famous Spiegeltent graced the Sydney Opera House Forecourt for the first time ever.

The Casio Brothers chose the world's 2nd largest arts festival to debut their fitness focussed 'Swedish Superheroes of Kid-Hop' show at Adelaide's flagship arts venue, the Adelaide Festival Centre, and the reviewers were raving. The Advertiser had this to say...

" 4 STARS... This high-energy interactive act gets toddlers to young teens grooving to the beat. The culprit is Kid-Hop, a child friendly version of Hip-Hop... They have a handle on comedy, contagious break dancing moves and some very cute electro-toy instruments. Their material is funny and kid-wise and every parents dream - things like too much TV and junk food are declared definitely uncool." - The Advertiser, Fringe Review (March 07).

H E A D L I N I N G K I D S A C T
The Casio Brothers were the face of the Adelaide Fringe's 'GALA 4 KIDS' 07 and the event's headline act, consisting of 4 sell out shows at the Royalty Theatre. During the course of the Fringe, the trio were interviewed on Channel 10, Mix FM and ABC Radio.

"These guys must be seen to be believed!... high energy and equal hilarity" - www.InTheMix.com.au

They also appeared on the cover of 'Eventful Adelaide' magazine, which saw 1.5 million copies distributed in major newspapers throughout Australia and NZ in the lead up to the Fringe.

Lyrics

ME + MY TV

Written By: The Casio Brothers


I like watching TV
It entertains me
There's lots and lots of shows to see
Right there on my TV
In between the shows there's ads
Advertising lots of fads
Mum and dad say it bad
But I think it's kinda rad

Your eyes are red
Your eyes are square
Your mind is numb
You sit and stare
You never go out anywhere
Your butt is stuck
Right to that chair

CHORUS 1
I like watching TV
It entertains me
There's lots and lots of shows to see
Right there on my TV

There's lots of ads for junky food
That really put me in the mood
To eat loads and loads of junk
As much as fits into my trunk
My trunk.
My trunk, my trunk, my trunk
My lovely lumpy trunk.

Check it out...
Her bike is rusting in the shed
Dust has settled on her head
She's spongy like a loaf of bread
What was that that Demi said?

CHORUS 2
I like watching TV
It entertains me
But i think it's killing me
Watching too much TV

I eat so much I stick to the couch
Deeper and deeper and deeper I slouch
Til i can't even see the TV
Coz the couch has swallowed me
I've been stuck for over a day
I haven't even been out to play
I don't wanna die this way
Too much TV's not OK?

No way.
No way, no way, no way!
It rots your brain away.

Check it out...
1, 2, 123, turn off your TV
1, 2, 3, 4, I'm not watching anymore

GOOD THINGS

Written By: The Casio Brothers


V1
I don’t eat junk food
Coz junk foods not healthy
I only eat good food
Coz good food can help me
Keep my heart pumpin’
As strong as it can
Get my body jumpin’
As long as it can

CHORUS 1
I only eat good things
I wanna be kind
To the planet and my body
And I want a healthy mind

V2
That can think really fast
And make me feel happy
But when I eat junk food
I just feel snappy!

Remember at your birthday
You ate the whole cake
It gave you diarrhoea
And a nasty belly ache

CHORUS 2

V3
I don’t eat McDonalds
It makes me feel sick
I don’t eat KFC
It’s heavy like a brick
I love eating vegetables
I eat them everyday
I love eating fruit
Bring me some right away

CHORUS 3

V4
I don’t drink fizzy drinks
Too much artificial
I don’t eat burgers
I’m not into gristle
I love my food freaky fresh
And I’m proud of it
It makes me feel alive
And it helps me keep fit

And what about chocolate?
Too much sugar
I just ate a sausage roll
I don’t think you shoulda
Oh shoulda, coulda, whateva!!
Time to get clever
I never shoulda eaten it
Never ever ever!!

CHORUS 4

V6
All us superheroes
Eat good things everyday
Superman eats lots of bran
To keep baddies away

Popeye eats spinach
He’s the strongest of them all
Spiderman eats brussel sprouts
So he can climb up walls

Supergirl told me
She drinks banana smoothies
So she can stay super fit
For all her super movies

And Hannah Montanna does aerobics
At her local gym
If someone gives her junk food
She throws it in the bin!!!

CHORUS 5

GET UP

Written By: The Casio Brothers

V1
Don’t sit there like a couch potato
Get up, spin around like t-t-tornado
Don’t just sit there in your seat
Get up on ya feet, move around to the beat
This show is live it’s not TV
Everybody in the house
You better listen to me
Everybody in the house
You better listen to me
I wanna see you stand up
On the count of 3

One, are you ready?
Two, get ready
Three!!!

*CHORUS*
GET UP, GET DOWN
GET UP, GET DOWN to the sound
GET UP, GET DOWN
GET UP, Coz you Gotta get up to get down

Shake wiggle wiggle, Shake wiggle wiggle BOUNCE!
Shake wiggle wiggle, Shake wiggle wiggle BOUNCE!
Shake wiggle wiggle, Shake wiggle wiggle BOUNCE!
You Gotta get up to get down

V2
Don’t just sit there like a stare bear
Get up, get down, like you just don’t care
Yo everybody here listen up
If you wanna get down
Then you gotta get up
There’s no time for being lazy
Jump in the air and g-g-go crazy
We want to see everyone touch the ceiling
One more time now... with FEELING!

One, are you ready?
Two, get ready
Three!!!

*CHORUS*

Fabio has twinkle toes
And so much bling bling, he glows
Mario’s got tha beat that flows
Round and around the record goes
Demi likes to strike a pose
And dance to tha beat of the Casios
Who’s this rockin the kid-hop show?
Flick that switch so everybody knows

One, are you ready?
Two, get ready
Three!!!

*CHORUS*
GET UP, GET DOWN
GET U, GET DOWN to the sound
GET UP, GET DOWN
GET UP, Coz you Gotta get up to get down

THE REEBOK JAM

Written By: The Casio Brothers

Here's a little song about a girl named Suzie
Down at the gym is where we met Suzie
Suzie was really digging the groove
She was burning fat with aerobics moves

She lead us to the fitness centre
Healthy dudes dressed in lycra
When she returned she's glowin from the socks
She's wearin HI-TOP TONGUE PUMP AEROBIC REEBOKS!

Everybody, on the count of 4
Step up, and back to the floor
Step up, step down
Keep in time to the stereo sound
Here we go

1,2,3,4, step up
And back to the floor
Step up, step down
Step up, step down
Step up, step down
Feeling tight, losin' them pounds

* CHORUS *
WE ROCK TO THE REEBOK JAM!
WE ROCK TO THE REEBOK JAM!
WE ROCK TO THE REEBOK JAM!
EVERYBODY RAISE UP YA HANDS!

She's wearin'
Hi-Top-B-Rock-Non-Stop-Reeboks
Air Pump Tongue to support the body rock
Matchin’ head band, wrist band
Catchin’ this man's heart with a butterfly net
Pants of lycra girl i like ya
The way ya move sets my heart on fire
Sweatin' so hard that my shirt's all wet
Girl can we do another step set?

She was walkin' me like walkin' a dog
Bouncin' round the room like a fitness frog

Jump like this be a fitness frog!
Jump like this be a fitness frog!
C’mon everybody be a fitness frog!
Jump like this, be a fitness frog!

JUMP! JUMP! JUMP! JUMP!
JUMP! JUMP! JUMP!

I’m Lost in a trance of STAR JUMPIN'
Everybody start STAR JUMPIN'
Everybody start STAR JUMPIN'
Everybody start STAR JUMPIN'

Pulse rate's up coz my heart is THUMPIN'
Jump like this get your heart rate Thumpin
Jump like this get your heart rate Thumpin
Jump like this get your heart rate Thumpin

I'm lovin' every move of my fitness queen
To every move I make she's doin' 7 in between
And not showin' any sign of slowin’
I'm workin' up a sweat
BUT THE GIRL IS GLOWIN'

Everybody just like before
Step up, and back to the floor
Step up, step down
Keep in time to the stereo sound
Here we go

1,2,3,4, step up
And back to the floor
Step up, step down
Step up, step down
Step up, step down
Feeling tight, losin' them pounds

* CHORUS *
WE ROCK TO THE REEBOK JAM!
WE ROCK TO THE REEBOK JAM!
WE ROCK TO THE REEBOK JAM!
EVERYBODY RAISE UP YA HANDS!

Rocked to Suzie's class at 1
Why not? It could only be fun
Went to her class at 2
By then he knew what to do
Went to her class at 3
But Suzie wasn't noticing me
So I went to her class at 4
I was on my knees beggin' for more

Suzie said “stay for my class at 5”
Now I'm buzzin' round Suzie
Like a bee to a hive
Buzzed to her class at 6
For his transcendental aerobics fix
Went to her class at 7
I was fryin' him up
Like a pan of bacon
Went to her class at 8
By then she accepted
My offer for a date

* CHORUS *

Suzie said “pick me up at 9”
I was knockin' on her door
RIGHT ON TIME
She came to the door in her lycra pants
"Lets hit the floor, do you like to dance?"
Yeah we hit the floor, the floor was packed
Non stop hip-hop
WICKETY WICKETY WICKETY WACK!
NERVOUS!
I couldn't believe what I saw
Step Reebok leading up to the dance floor

SUZIE:
Everybody, just once more
Step up, and back to the floor
Step up, step down
Keep in time to the stereo sound
Here we go

1,2,3,4, step up
And back to the floor
Step up, step down
Step up, step down
Step up, step down
Feeling tight, losin' them pounds

Welcome to the Reebok Jam
Turn around and shake that thang
Welcome to the Reebok Jam
Turn around and shake that thang
Welcome to the Reebok Jam
Turn around and shake that thang
Welcome to the Reebok Jam

Non stop body rock, that's the plan!
Non stop body rock, that's the plan!
Non stop body rock, that's the plan!
Non stop body rock, that's the plan!

SHOWBAG

Written By: The Casio Brothers


OK mum & dad here's the deal
There’s no time to stop and have a meal
I want a battered sav
Coz i think they're unreal
I’ll take it as I ride
On the Ferris Wheel

We are on the Ferris Wheel
As it takes us for a ride
But i want a jam dohnut
And i want it deep fried
We're gonna make you dance
And we're gonna make you smile
So c'mon Mario
Show me your lyrical style

I want a remote control car
That goes heaps fast
A ride on the Zipper
And the Dodge 'em Cars
A Hot Wheels bag
A Mega Super Soaker
A plastic silver sword
So i can poke ya!

CHORUS:
C'MON MUM & DAD
WON'T YOU BUY ME A SHOWBAG
JUST ONE MORE
AND I PROMISE NOT TO NAG
I NEED IT RIGHT NOW
AND I NEED IT SO BAD
SO C'MON MUM & DAD
WON'T YOU BUY ME A SHOWBAG!

I want to fly high
On the Roller Coaster
I love Britney Spears
Buy me her poster
I need a sugar hit
From the fairy floss
And this is where we meet
If we ever get lost

I want everything i see
I don't care what it costs
It's all about me mum & dad
Yeah I am the boss
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Sesame Street
Keep your wallets on the ready
In case i like what i see

I want a Chiko Roll
And a Dagwood Dog
A toffee apple
And some Chuppa Chups
Some bubble gum
And some Freddo Frogs
And how about an Action Man now
Because he rocks!

CHORUS

My head keeps spinnin'
When i'm standin' still
My stomach is churnin'
I feel real ill
I'm pushin' thru the crowd
But the crowd is too thick
I need a toilet fast
I'm about to be sick!

I want the MegaStar showbag
With inflatable guitar
The Super Horror showbag
With the glow in the dark mask
The Ultra Pirate showbag
With a patch for my eye
You better give it to me now
Before i break down and cry!

I wanna ride the Ghost Train
And The Enterprise
Shoot some hoops
For a fluffy prize
I want a Footy Bag, a Footy Pie
And french fries
Give me all those things now
Whatever the price!

CHORUS
