The music was loved so much by both the kids and the adults that they formed a band to keep the music coming. Within two months of the band's first public performance, they had appeared on FOX, NBC, CBS and UPN, and they were nominated "Best New Band" by the Children's Music Web Awards (the only music awards that are chosen by kids in over 500 classrooms around the world).
