I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Rolie Polie Guacamole, will take their "Chips and Salsa Summertime Tour" from coast to coast this summer, all the way from Boston to Seattle. Rolie Polie Guacamole looks forward to coming home to NYC in August, with three free shows for families atHudson River Park, Manhattan (August 15), Washington Park, Brooklyn(August 18), and the Central Library of the Brooklyn Public Library (August 30). See details below.

Rolie Polie Guacamole lays claim to being one of the hardest working bands in kids' music, and that just might be true. They've released five albums and played well over 1,500 shows nationwide since hitting the boards with their first performance in 2007, receiving top picks from Boston.com, Time Out NY Kids, and Time Out Chicago. (It must be in the genes, for founding band member Frank Gallo's dad is none other than veteran kids' musician Lou Gallo.)

Rolie Polie Guacamole's newest release, Chips and Salsa, continues the band's tradition of bouncy, fun, high-energy songs all done up in folk, funk, rock, Latin and country styles, about eating healthy, staying active, and places the band loves to go, with a sprinkling of animal tunes thrown in for good measure.

Previous Rolie Polie Guacamole albums include Triathlon (2014, Parents' Choice Fun Stuff Award®), Houses Of The Moly (2012, Parents' Choice Silver Honor Award®, NAPPA Honors Award), Time For Hummus (2010), and Rolie Polie Guacamole (2008).

Chips and Salsa is available on the Rolie Polie Guacamole website HERE and at CDbaby, iTunes, and other digital retailers.
