WHAT IS ZUCCHINILAND?
Home to Steve, Jack and Sam, and fully evoked on this new CD, it’s a world where seasons change from week to week and hopes and dreams dance with the magic of music! ZucchiniLand’s a place where kids do all the normal “kid things” like going to school, taking out the trash and recyclables, going on a road trip to Grandma and Grandpa's house (and getting lost!), building raft and going to “Berry Island”, having a bad day and forgetting to do their homework , enjoying the Summertime, and, most importantly, writing songs about these adventures (because these guys are in a band!)
WHO ELSE LIVES IN ZUCCHINILAND?
Mom and Dad, Polly (their dog), good friend Susan, and a host colorful characters, including: Mr. Weir the mailman (a send-up of Bob Weir from the Grateful Dead), Coward Hosell the anchorman (a send-up of the famous Howard Cosell), Mrs. Honeypepper, the brothers’ classroom teacher, Pete from Pete’s Sneaker Store, Mr. Burnham from Burnham’s Apple Orchard (and many more...).
SKITS AND FUNNY COMMERCIALS ON THIS CD:
Selections from their internationally syndicated radio show, woven into the flow of "Songs From ZucchiniLand", they evoke a picture of what life in ZucchiniLand’s all about: “Bad Day Magazine” (A publication all about 'bad days'...You’ll find your day isn’t bad at all after reading this!). “The Appetite Table” (It works like magic and makes everything taste great!). “Reality Zapper” (makes toys and other expensive things not as important as they used to be!). "Pete’s Sneaker Store" (located in the Carrott Creek Mall in ZucchiniLand. Pete’s just a bit too eager to meet all your sneaker needs). "Zucchini Clubhouse News" with Bob Haskee, Coward Hosell and Zane Finch (hmmm…these newsmen sound kind of familiar, don't they?).
