The Imagination Movers are a rock band for families and the Emmy-winning stars of a hit TV series seen worldwide on the Disney Junior channel. There are 76 episodes of “Imagination Movers” translated in more than 20 languages. In 2020, all episodes became available on the Disney Plus streaming network.
In 2022, The Movers will celebrate their 20th birthday, having started when four friends from New Orleans brainstormed a show that would feature quality music and positive male role models while inspiring teamwork and creativity. The New York Times says the Movers are “prized by many parents for non-condescending lyrics and music that evokes the Beastie Boys or Red Hot Chili Peppers.” Parenting magazine praised the band’s “dash of rebellion” and songs that are “fresh and treacle-free.”
The Movers have appeared on “The View,” “Good Morning America,” NPR’s “American Routes,” “Morning Edition” and are a fixture on SiriusXM Kids Place Live. The Movers have written more than 250 songs. Many have been featured on commercials and TV shows, including “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “Wipeout” and “The Today Show.”
Having graced the cover of Pollstar, the Movers have performed for more than a million fans across North America, Europe and Asia including stops in such far-reaching locations as Dubai, Guam and Newfoundland. They are the top-rated and best-reviewed major touring act for families according to TicketMaster.com. The Movers have performed at the White House for two different presidents (Bush, Obama) and are active roster members for Armed Forces Entertainment (AFE) and Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR). They are National Buddy Walk Partners of the National Down Syndrome Society (NOSS).
In 2021, the Movers signed an EP deal with 8 Pound Gorilla Records releasing the EP Happy To Be Here, which promptly entered the Top 10 on Billboard Kid’s Audio. 8 Pound Gorilla Records is the offspring of 800 Pound Gorilla Records, the world’s largest comedy record label and one that’s recently moved into kids’ and family programming.
