With Halloween coming up soon, kids and parents everywhere are scouring thrift stores, building their costumes and generally getting ready for an exciting season of make-believe fun. The new song “Why Can’t Every Day Be Halloween?“, by a new family band called Triple Rainbow, was just released, and it’s already hitting the radio waves and playlists internationally.
Triple Rainbow is the brainchild of Jared Mees, the legendary co-founder of the independent record label and local handmade-focused retailer Tender Loving Empire, Mees curates and supports a successful roster of internationally acclaimed artists under his indie music label as well.
As a father of two young daughters, Mees finds inspiration from everyday family life and the wildness of kids’ imaginations. To quell the malaise and boredom of the pandemic, Jared, July (9) and Piper (4) created a creativity explosion, writing and recording 15 songs, making more than 25 short films, building massive box forts and building extensive miniature dioramas and accompanying stop motion videos — all of which will be forthcoming in the next few months via Triple Rainbow social media accounts.
Meanwhile, once you’ve created your costumes, join the Story Pirates as they celebrate Halloween in a big way this year.

Kids can show off their costumes during the Zoom parade, and play games and generally celebrate this spookily creative time of year.
