Bio

What in the world is that, way up in the sky? A Bird? A Plane? A Unicorn? A Unicorn-Pegasus! No... It’s Play Date! Soaring through time and space to win the hearts of kids, parents and magical creatures everywhere! Greg Attonito (The Bouncing Souls) and Shanti Wintergate are bringing their love of music to kids at the speed of sound!

Play Date consists of husband-and-wife duo Greg Attonito, lead vocals and founding member of punk rock legends, The Bouncing Souls (1989-present BtnUKReview, NYTimes, YouTube) and singer/songwriter Shanti Wintergate. The duo released the children’s book I Went for a Walk and toured the US doing readings and playing music for kids across the country (SFChronicle). This sprang the concept for Play Date. Inspired by their love of music, creativity and adventure, Greg and Shanti have created top-drawer music for the whole family with their new album, Imagination. “There's always been a strong sense of self-discovery and independence in good kids' music, and Play Date's album, Imagination has that for the punk rocker in training.” -Stefan Shepherd, NPR. These upbeat, euphonious, well-crafted songs will delight your ears and have you singing and dancing with or without your kids in no time.

There’s the esteem-boosting anthem Rad (“I’m Rad because I like to draw everything that I can see, I’m RAD because I like ME!”); and the empowering messages in Anyone Can Sing and Imagination which encourage singing from the heart and tapping the limitless imagination that lives in all of our hearts. The playful, educational rock-steady rhythm of The Number Song tells the story of how “One, won the race of numbers.” And Dance Like A Monster will inspire kids from six to 60 to… well… Dance like a monster (video link)! What ever the subject, tempo, rhythm or rhyme you’ll be singing while you Dance Like a Monster in no time!

All of this and much more. So grab a friend, tune your imagination to the key of awesome and buckle up before we take off – it’s time for Play Date!
