With fun and funky songs about snow, sleds, and seriously loud sneezes, Erin Lee and the Up Past Bedtime Band are celebrating winter.

Erin Lee is an award-winning songwriter whose family music has received rave reviews and radio play from California to Canada. Her original tunes from her first two CD's have earned her national attention as one of the freshest, funniest, and insightful performers for kids. The Up Past Bedtime Band are a group of talented New York City musicians who can usually be found up well past bedtime playing everything from country music to punk in many of NYC's top venues. Together they make fantastic music for families that feature funky drumming, electric violin, intricate harmonies and silly songs about assorted childhood challenges—from accidentally losing your lunchbox to accidentally getting locked in the bathroom.
