From Preschool of Rock founder Michael Napolitano comes Michael & The Rockness Monsters, an interactive, super galactic funk inspired, rock-n-roll experience for families. The music is both silly and serious — filled with catchy melodies and thick instrumentation. These records, masterly produced by Grammy winner Dean Jones, are a voyage into the child’s subconscious. During his 10-year tenure as founder of Preschool of Rock, Michael wrote, produced, performed and recorded 5 albums, so he’s tuned into the landscape of children’s music. His 10 years as a member of the Blue Man Group Creative Team is evident in the slamming drum beats and eclectic instrumentation. The music is intelligent, fun and full of humorous hooks and catchy quirks. Michael & the Rockness Monsters’ self-titled debut record was released in February 2016, and their second release, “Funny Faces,” came out in April 2017. They’ve been featured in the New York Times, New York Family, Sirius XM and more.
