History with a Side of Song: The Deedle Deedle Dees Present
Sing-a-Long History, Vol. 2: The Rocket Went Up!
The Deedle Deedle Dees, a Brooklyn based educational rock band hailed by National Public Radio and which Paste magazine calls one of the top “Music Picks for Families” will release their first album in five years – a collection of 16 original songs about real-life heroes. Sing-a-Long History, Vol. 2 focuses on the adventurers, athletes, scientists, performers, and everyday people who create magic with everything they create and do. From Ada Lovelace to Diana Nyad, Houdini to Stephen Hawking, Sing-a-Long History, Vol. 2 even offers songs about Tesla and Typhoid Mary, all delivered with dance-happy beats and sing-along lyrics that delve into little-known facts about historical figures.
Produced at Dean Jones’ Grammy winning No Parking Studio in the Hudson River Valley, Sing-Along History Vol. 2 features guest artists Secret Agent 23 Skidoo, Rachel Loshak (Gustafer Yellowgold) and Sandra Velasquez (Moona Luna) as well as a chorus of children. The new album will be available on September 30 via CDBaby and other music retailers. The album features the single “Houdini,” which was released on the escape artist’s birthday in March 2016.
