Rocknoceros is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a patriotic "state-themed" album, Plymouth Rockers, which will be appropriate released on the 4th of July. Fourteen different states are featured, and the album also includes their take on Irving Berlin's classic anthem, "God Bless America."
Adult listeners will recognize elements of the Beatles, country, funk, reggae, classic rock, and more. The songs capture elements of each state that are widely recognized (cheese from Wisconsin, for example). The songs are appropriate for kids, but musically mature enough for adults.
Rocknoceros is three guys: Coach Cotton, Williebob, and Boogie Woogie Bennie. The band has been at the forefront of the Washington, DC children's music scene since its inception, winning a remarkable eight Washington Area Music Awards. In its first decade Rocknoceros has entertained tens of thousands of fans throughout the country and has gained significant national recognition with performances at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Wolf Trap, and The Kennedy Center. In addition to Plymouth Rockers, Rocknoceros albums include Colonel Purple Turtle (2011, with an accompanying picture book), the NAPPA award-winning PINK! (2009), Dark Side of the Moon Bounce (2007), and Rocknoceros (2005).
Plymouth Rockers will be available at rocknoceros.com, amazon.com, CDBaby.com, and iTunes.
