The Imagination Movers story is the ultimate example of the power of imagination. In 2003, four New Orleans friends - Rich Collins, Scott Durbin, Dave Poche, & Scott "Smitty" Smith - had an idea. They thought kids wanted and deserved music that spoke to them, not down to them. So, they started writing songs & brainstorming ideas about a children's TV show. 2 years later, they had become the latest sensation of their musical city, attracting parents & children alike with an eclectic pop sensibility and lyrical turns about healthy snacks and playing catch and conquering childhood fears of bedtime.
When the levees broke after Hurricane Katrina, the far-reaching disaster turned the Movers' world upside down, but it didn't put an end to their dream. Three members lost everything and Smith reported to his day job as a firefighter & first responder - they never stopped living according to the Movers' motto: "Reach high, think big, work hard, have fun!" This motto has served the band well. The Movers partnered with Disney in 2007 and filmed 75 episodes of their Emmy Award-winning series over three seasons.
The Movers are known as a high-energy, interactive live music act. Over the past 2 years alone the Movers have rocked packed houses in the U.S., Canada, Japan, Guam, Spain, Italy, Germany, and the United Kingdom, and they recently released their 10th album, entitled 10-4.
