Imagination Movers: For Those About To Hop

Have you ever seen a field filled with parents and their kids – all hopping? That’s the scene that plays out in your living room each time you tune into the Imagination Movers' hit Disney Channel series. And now the smart kid-pop quartet has released its newest CD called For Those About to Hop.


The Movers

Rich Collins, Scott Durbin, Dave Poche and Scott "Smitty" Smith got together in 2003 when a group of New Orleans friends started writing songs together and testing them out on their own kids. The band's dynamic, high-energy shows and wide-ranging pop sensibilities (with a special nod to 1980s alt rock) made them an immediate hit at the local parks and children's museums.


After signing to Disney, the Movers released their label debut Juice Box Heroes in March 2008, and are now currently working on the second season of their Playhouse Disney show. Since its release, Juice Box Heroes has consistently ranked in the Top 10 on iTunes Children's Music chart.


The Album

In For Those About To Hop the Movers keep their fans on their feet throughout the generous 22-song set. Show favorite "Jungle Room" is a swinging, horn-drenched musical safari, while tunes like "Now We’re Cooking," "Paint the Day Away" and "Playing Catch" are equal parts funk, hip-hop and sing-along rock, with infectious beats and typically catchy lyrics that celebrate learning, growing and fun.


A special release of For Those About to Hop is currently available at Target stores nationwide and includes five bonus tracks. An exclusive iTunes version of the release offers another set of five bonus songs and for a limited time. All versions include downloadable lyrics and a coloring sheet, along with an interactive game featuring the TV show's popular puppet character Warehouse Mouse.

    Whose Music Does More Damage?

    • Ricky Martin.
    • Eminem.
    • They're both bad.
    • I don't think either of them are wrong. Let them sing what they want.
