ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Our "Mighty Big Broom" CD made it onto the 51st Grammy Awards first round ballot in Best Children's Album and Best CD Packaging categories! Hip, Hip, Hurrah!

Loose Caboose Band is really two brothers (Bill and Joe Carey) who have played their terrific toe-tapping, finger-snapping original songs for many years in schools, parties, and concerts in Chicagoland. “Mighty Big Broom“ (2008) is their latest "caboose-tastic" release of pop/folk/rock/blues/ballad tunes for kids and parents of all ages. The rootin’ tootin’ Loose Caboose Band uses a wide variety of instruments, bright vocal harmonies, and various musical styles from around the world; they've got something for every family! So, jump on board the “Loose Caboose” musical train and join in the “caboose-alicious” dance-party fun!

Two of the songs on Loose Caboose Band’s first CD, “The Caboose is Loose,” ("Toothbrush Train" and "Pumpkin Time") advanced to the next round of judging in the 2006 International Songwriting Competition in Nashville, Tennessee! Hurrah!

Here are some recent comments about Loose Caboose Band's brand new 2008 CD, "Mighty Big Broom" (which made it onto the 51st Grammy Awards first round ballot in two categories--Best Children's Album and Best CD Packaging!):

"Brothers Bill Carey and Joe Carey are back with a second CD of kid-pleasing original songs, from "My Very First Haircut" to "Legoland" and "Wake Up Sleepy Daddy." The brothers use a variety of instruments and styles, from pop to jazz to country and blues on the 14-track CD."
Notre Dame Magazine

"I had a car filled with 10-11 year old boys yesterday when I announced the surprise that we had music none of them had heard yet. I said we'd be rating the best songs and that I would have the 'results' sent to the composers. You both have resounding and consistent 'thumbs ups' from a rather difficult audience. The car rocked with movement when it should have, but more impressively, they commented on the lyrics as being 'quite clever! (The 'Lego' song really struck a chord.) Well done on an excellent job...a stunning new release."
Maureen O. (Oxford, United Kingdom)

"Five stars. Two thumbs up. Four years in the making, and the brothers Carey (Loose Caboose Band), have hit it out of the park. Took Ma, both Grandmas, and a couple of cookies to make the first haircut go smooth; took Joe & Bill Carey to render everyday happenings into full blown slices of sweet family life."
Cathy C.

"I was swept away...I'm a big fan of GORP [Good Old Raisins and Peanuts]...so glad that someone has finally made a song about it!"
Tom B.

"My favorite song...is "Ridin' on the Gravy Train" because of its jazzy/blues style...I will send the CD on to my daughter...in Los Angeles. She and her husband have two sons, age 3 and 6. I suspect they might enjoy the songs a great deal."
Larry D.

"I enjoyed the C.D, (particularly "Climbing on Daddy Mountain" and "My very First Haircut"). You have a simple/naive style that gives you a direct line to kids under five...Mr. Rogers comes to mind, but you have more humor and fun...It's very clear you know a lot about children."
Doug K.

Here are some exciting comments about Loose Caboose Band's first CD, "The Caboose Is Loose"--still a kid's classic!:

"The cd is amazing. My kids love it. My kids listen to a lot of folksy stuff like Arlo & Woody Guthrie, as well as Raffi. My oldest child is a "train-guy" and he just loves it! He was going through your words and everything...my daughter was dancing...they want to hear it on the way to school...It's quite an accomplishment...I'll treasure it."
Alice C.

"Thank you for the cd! We love it. We love "Toothbrush Train" and "Big Boy."
Ethan, Alex and Anna C.

"How lucky we are to have your first CD!...Our son, Ryan (20 months old) knows all the songs, and depending on what he's doing, he's got lots of favorites...Thanks for providing us with great entertainment and lots of wonderful memories!"
Chris and Tina H.

"The Carey brothers are real-estate managers by day but like to rock and roll and sing and dance, too. With the pianos, guitars, trumpets, bodhran and doumbek drums and didgeridoos of the Rootin' Tootin' Loose Caboose Band, they put together a CD of their original songs for kids. Their catchy melodies should have both kids and parents smiling."
Notre Dame Magazine

I loved the CD
"I Loved the CD. Especially enjoyed 'Superior Officer' and 'Without You, Kid'...Nice instrumentation. Great job packaging the disk too."

Andy Teske

The World Needs More Happy Tunes Like These
"Our favorites are 'Climbing on Daddy Mountain' and 'My Very First Haircut'--the world needs more happy tunes like these! The 'Haircut song' as we call it is one of those songs that just keeps running through your head and you can't help but sing it out loud! Loose Caboose brings a smile to your face! Keep up the good work!"
