Striking a balance between goofy and cerebral, Recess Monkey calls on its audience to evolve along with them from the age of the (purple) dinosaur to a new era of growth and development. From their original hit “Math Vitamin” to class-inspired songs like “Messy Monday” and “Can You Build a Bridge” to the “rock-pop opera” music on Wonderstuff, Recess Monkey offers tunes about topics as far-ranging as putting on socks and dealing with frustration- good and important lessons all.
