Thought the days of listening to kid’s music was over? Well, Robbert Bobbert and the Bubble Machine ain’t just for the wee ones. Songwriter Robert Schneider, known as the lead man in the powerpop group The Apples in Stereo, has crafted a universal and enchanting concoction full of playfulness, imagination and wonder.
Advancing beyond the old simplicities of Big Bird and Fraggle Rock, kids today have really got it made. And while the Hannah Montana’s of the world still dominate the tweens, younger kids are getting the chance to hone a real musical appreciation.
Presenting Robbert Bobbert and the Bubble Machine, Apples in Stereo frontman Robert Schneider’s newest musical menagerie. With tales of super heroes and clock workshops and messages of love and friendship, Robbert Bobbert is the ultimate kid friendly musical scientist. Along with cute drawings and funny little voices, this act draws a very universal appeal, eliciting a sing-along quality with creative tempos and non traditional melodies. Kids are sure to like the happy-go-lucky keyboards as adults dig those Beach Boy breezy guitars. And while the young ones listen in about a mouse who steals chocolate, older listeners will be nodding heads while absorbed in a surprising and positively funky beat.
This isn’t the first attempt by Schneider to create kid’s music, with the Apples having contributed to such well known series as The Powerpuff Girls and The Adventures of Pete and Pete. Now, under his own creation, the presumed inventor of a certain Bubble producing apparatus, Schneider is in position to bring Robbert Bobbert to life with his unique inventiveness and infectious cheer.
