Dan Zanes’ story is one of a rock ’n’ roller who found a second career when he decided to make kids’ music that parents could enjoy just as much as their little ones. A former member of the Del Fuegos, a Boston-based group that was named “Best New Band” by Rolling Stone in 1984, Zane retired from rock in 1991, got married, and became a father. He soon discovered the joy of making music for kids with other parents, and started a band and record label dedicated to the concept of kids’ music that’s enjoyable for adults. The result has been a series of successful tours and recordings, including the 2007 Grammy-winning Catch That Train, Grammy-nominated House Party), and a new musical genre full of happy tunes, eccentric instrumentation, and good times for young and old. “Zane’s music works because it’s not kids’ music; it’s just music,” wrote Rolling Stone.
