ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Everybody's In The Band" is Billy's latest family/young audience DVD/VHS video release. It features hundreds of enthusiastic kids, as well as special guest, Grammy Award winner, Alison Krauss. "Everybody's In The Band" continues in the tradition of Billy's first video, "Bangin' & Sangin'" (2000, Parent Choice Award winner!) based on the idea that music can happen ANYWHERE and ANYTIME, with ANYONE or ANYTHING.

A Billy Jonas performance is an explosion of energy. In singalongs, bangalongs, whisperalongs, as well as improvised songs, his primary instrument is the audience. Everyone becomes part of a performance that reaches out and ". . . touches even the most hardened of hearts." (Fayetteville Morning News)

Concerts begin with a simple "tuning" of the audience; from there a whimsical trajectory carries listeners through stories of life, love, and triumph over 'Murphy's Law.' Jonas' original pieces are played on fanciful "industrial re-percussion" instruments made from found objects. He sings in a clear tenor voice; his guitar work is adventurous, alternately percussive and lyrical.

Jonas' heartwarming work has been enjoyed across North America since 1987. Previously a member of the highly acclaimed duo, "The Billys," he has been featured at prestigious festivals and venues nationwide (see selected venues). Jonas has shared stages with some of the world's favorite acoustic artists, including Patti Larkin, Ani DiFranco, David Wilcox, Richard Thompson, and Pete Seeger.

Jonas' recent CD, "Life So Far," sparkles with unique perspectives and found sounds. Songs filled with hope, yearning, wonder, and wisdom include special guests David Wilcox, Glen Velez, Robert Moog (on Theramin), and Zimbabwe's Black Umfolosi voice and percussion choir. Jonas also has released a video for younger audiences, entitled "Bangin' and Sangin,'" that has garnered critical acclaim, including a Parents Choice Gold Award, and inclusion on the New York Times "Best" listing.

Granddaughter liked a lot
Ordered for 4 year old granddaughter. Response was she liked it a lot and started to dance to it as soon as it started playing.

Good music, encourages creativity
Cute DVD of Billy's great songs, gets kids involved as opposed to just staring at the screen. My boys love the songs, which they know from Billy's CDs, and each time they watch this they want to make their own instruments and play music, too. Very fun!

Everybody's in the Band DVD
This is the most fun you can have with your grandchildren! We all love it and play it over and over again and have more fun every time. Don't tell the grandkids, but we play it a lot even when they aren't visiting us!!! Thanks for all the fun, Billy. The DVD truly is as much fun as your live preformance was.

Wendy Goldberg

Fun and engaging, great new repertoire
This video is incredibly fun! I've already taught "Bear to the Left" to my third grade students and they want to "practice it" at recess! I can't wait to share "Cabeza" and "Nocturnal Animals". I can't get the songs out of my head. Way to go, Billy!

2 yr. old thrills!
My 2 yr. old just loves this DVD and I do too! Why not? Billy Jonas engages us both with his homemade instruments and encourages us to join in. What a refreshing change from coookie cut shows.

THE BEST MUSIC and sign language too!!
We got this dvd from the library and loved it so, we bought it from cd baby. Every age kid I babysit loves it!! My 2 year old daughter started signing the letter W and then the next time we watched the DVD I knew why-Billy had taught it to her before "the vitamin alphabet". Now she signs the letter 'I' too, I can't wait until she gets the whole alphabet down! Thanks Billy, we all love bangin and sangin to you!

Great DVD---We LOVE Billy Jonas!
The DVD was great to watch. We love "Tongo" song and wish it was included in its entirity instead of just being played for a little bit at the beginning and at the end. The DVD could be longer too. Overall excellent! Billy Jonas is a great artist.

Smart and engaging!!
A great entertainer who exudes grace and musicianship; Billy Jonas's DVD was well enjoyed by my 6 and 41/2 yr old boys. Catchy tunes, cool instruments and simple visuals made this a hit in our house- even for mom and dad !

My kids LOVE this video and I'm singing the songs all day
We were lucky enough to see Billy Jonas in concert two weeks ago and my kids (age 3 and 5) have watched this DVD every day since. (I think they would watch it constantly if we would let them.) They get up and dance too. The songs are catchy and intelligent. And unlike most of the childrens'music videos we have, I'm really enjoying the music myself. Everyone should be in this band!

Love it!!
This is a great DVD for all ages. The songs are wonderful - you'll be singing them with your kids. Allison Krauss makes a guest appearance on one song. This DVD would make a great family gift. Also check out Billy's other video - Bangin' and Sangin'!
