Big Kid Band's mission is simple - to create music that entertains kids of all ages, from 2 to 102. The band's Southern roots are evident in their music, which often pulls from folk and blues traditions. But there are plenty of other ingredients thrown in to the mix, from the Beatles to Bob Marley, Tom Petty to They Might Be Giants. The lyrics are at times sober, at other times silly, but always well-crafted and non-patronizing. Big Kid Band is... Park Ellis - Park lives in Atlanta, GA with his wife Angela and their daughter Anna Sophia. Before moving back to his hometown of Atlanta, Park made a living as a singer-songwriter and drummer in Nashville, and later as a high school English teacher and music instructor. Now he works with an office supply sales, marketing & consulting company, teaches music lessons when he can, and runs Stepping Stone Press - that is, when he's not rocking the house with Big Kid Band! Patrick Miller - Patrick lives in Nashville, TN with his wife Monica. In addition to writing and playing music, Patrick is an avid outdoorsman and has been known to fish from sunup 'til sundown. His work with kids includes providing the music (along with Park) for Kids 4 Peace, an interfaith program for youth from the Middle East and the U.S. Kevin Murphy - Kevin lives in Cumming, GA with his wife Tiffany and their two children, Brennan and Meyrick (check out Brennan's and Meyrick's blog site, A Monster Ate My Book Report!) Back in the 90's Kevin fronted two Nashville bands, The Lounge Flounders and Canebrake Quartet. He has since earned a master's degree in Folk Studies and is perpetually 'this close' to completing his doctorate in English. He taught English part time at Gainesville College for several years and now works for Gwinnett County and a property assessor. Special guest David Henry - David lives in Nashville, TN with his wife Molly and their three children, Joe, Kate, and Alex. David owns True Tone Recording and has produced, engineered, and played with many artists including R.E.M., Tim McGraw, Guster, Jars of Clay, Cowboy Junkies. He also plays cello, mandolin, and sings with his own band Brother Henry (for which Park plays drums). David is currently working toward teacher certification and plans to go into the middle school classroom when finished.
