The Imagination Movers story is the ultimate example of the power of imagination. In 2003, four New Orleans friends – Rich Collins, Scott Durbin, Dave Poche and Scott “Smitty” Smith – had an idea. They thought kids wanted and deserved music that spoke to them, not down to them. So, they started gathering after their kids’ bedtimes to write songs and brainstorm ideas about a children’s television show. Two years later, they had become the latest sensation of their musical city, attracting parents and children alike with an eclectic pop sensibility and lyrical turns about healthy snacks and playing catch and conquering childhood fears of bedtime. Lines to the Movers’ shows stretched for blocks.
The Movers’ motto: “Reach high, think big, work hard, have fun!” has served the band well. Not even the Imagination Movers could have fully imagined the band’s current breakthrough success. The Movers partnered with Disney in 2007 and filmed 75 episodes of the Emmy Award-winning series over three seasons. The show airs in more than 55 countries and they’ve sold half a million CDs and DVDs to date.
Entertainment Weekly and The New York Times, reported the Movers are “prized by many parents for non-condescending lyrics and music that evokes the Beastie Boys or Red Hot Chili Peppers.”
Parenting magazine praised the band’s “dash of rebellion” and songs that are “fresh and treaclefree.”
