Take five outstanding NYC musicians with eclectic musical tastes and influences, combine their unique perspectives, add a backing band, and witness the result: a soulful, groove-heavy R&B musical extravaganza in a rock and roll package, capturing the sweetness, uncertainty, and simplicity of youth. Shine and the Moonbeams is family music’s first soul band. Shine sings “Wake Up Baby!” on Dan Zanes recent album Little Nut Tree; and Zanes will be releasing Shine’s first album in 2012.
There was something in the performance touched folks emotionally. Out with the Kids raved that Shine and the Moonbeams songs were heartfelt, insightful and emotional, with brilliant musicianship to boot. – Zooglobble
Check out this video from KindieFest 2011 in NYC. The production quality is lacking, but what’s not lacking is Shine’s infectious groove!
