"Do you know Spaghetti Eddie? He's a friend of mine..." Children's rock band, Spaghetti Eddie, is bringing Eddie to life!

What exactly are we doing?

It's about time we introduced Spaghetti Eddie to the kids!  We want our friend to be a "Walkaround."  He will join us at all of our shows to entertain and educate kids while we play our music.  Imagine all the little smiles this guy would make!  The kids have a wonderful time listening to our music, but now we can put a face to the name.  Actually, more than a face; he's going to be a larger than life character thats almost as big as his appetite for spaghetti!  We are ready to introduce you to our friend, Eddie, and we think the kids just might make a new special friend too!

Our Friend Eddie

The man himself, Spaghetti Eddie!

Who exactly are we?

Spaghetti Eddie is comprised of Brendan Parker and Todd Parsons.  We play music for kids that is non-toxic to adults.  We live in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and play our music all over the state and beyond.  Our music is geared towards 1-7 year-olds, but we have some pretty old fans too!  We currently have 2 CDs released, and will have the 3rd ready for the holidays.  As some of you know, we have a few songs about some pretty special characters, but our best friend, Spaghetti Eddie, is so COOL that we decided to name our band after him!

1.) NEW FRIENDS:

Spaghetti Eddie! And Other Children's Songs Volume 1:

Volume 1
Volume 1

"...standouts are "Kittycat Town" and "Spaghetti Eddie," story-songs written in minor keys that are sure to have the kids up dancing and singing along.  A very promising debut"

-Stephanie Bange, Wright State University

Spaghetti Eddie! And Other Children's Songs Volume 2:

Volume 2
Volume 2

"People, we loved it.  My kids loved it, you guys it's fun.  Totally quirky, great beat...  take a look for yourself, and tell me if your kids aren't meowing all over the house for the rest of the day." 

"I’m pretty partial to “Everybody’s Different” from the second album right now. (And by partial, I mean I actually listened to that song while driving BY MYSELF yesterday. Can’t say I’ve done that with any other children’s music ever.)

Sarah James, WHOORL.COM

2.)  OLD FRIENDS:

Our new album, due to be realeased in time for the holidays, will feature a new special character (Hmmmm... who could it possibly be?), and awesome songs about topics every kid (and adult) can relate to. 

3.)  GOOD FRIENDS: 

How about all three CD's?  Something for everyone!

4.)  SPECIAL FRIENDS:

This is an opportunity for you (or a child) to be part of Spaghetti Eddie FOREVER!  This is what being a Super Fan is all about!  And, this would be an awesome holiday gift; to have your child's (or maybe grandchild's) name ON the new CD jacket!  We will list these names with great pride as "Super Fans!"  PLUS, you get ALL 3 CDs! 

5.)  FAMOUS FRIENDS:

Greer is a special friend who happens to be a FANTASTIC professional photographer.  We want to invite you to join us for a private mini-session to have your picture taken with our new friend, Spaghetti Eddie!  The pics are sure to be original, fun, and very professional!  Join us for a day (to be determined with what works best for everyone.  If another day is needed, we can make it happen) with Spaghetti Eddie, and have a lasting memory with a Digital Copy of the shoot!  We will also provide snacks and beverages for everyone!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

--We love a good challenge!--

A major challenge will be, who exactly will be wearing the Walkaround? We have a pretty good idea, and want that to be in no way revealed to the kiddos. Spaghetti Eddie will have a personality all his own, and this will be coached, and even rehearsed to get it right. He will be part of the show, but his pressence must be authentic, genuine, and consistant at all times!

We love what we do, and growing our product starts here and now! We appreciate that kids enjoy watching us play live music, or on our videos, but the next step is making our songs come to life! We have played so many shows that we have lost count, and incorportating Eddie into the productions will be a challenge in iteself. It has soooo much potential that we are incredibly excited to get started with this new inception to our service; providing original music entertainment to children, that just happens to be educational!

--Just where and how do you plan on creating Spaghetti Eddie?--

A custom tailored business suit is not cheap. Well, imagine buying a custom made mascot! They are EXPENSIVE! We take pride in all of our production value, and making this suit is no exception. Eddie would be created just outside Los Angeles by the same company that made the wonderful characters for Yo Gabba Gabba! Who knew? Right! This process takes approximately four to six weeks, so Eddie can be here for 2013! Who would want to live in 2013 without a guy like that in the world? We have spoken to the "creators", and this is something they CAN and ARE willing to do!

Because we play most of our shows outside in Oklahoma we want Eddie to be refridgerated. His body temperature is going to be out of this world! And, a cooling system would give him the pep he needs to entertain the way we know he can. Keeping things cold is a lucrative business, and cooling off Eddie is no exception. Any extra funds will be applied to perks like this. These suits are like cars; options are limited to how much you are willing to spend.

So, an AWESOME Eddie that stays cool will cost every bit of our goal amount, plus he has to be delivered to us...SHEESH! What a process!!! Making special friends is hard work! But we know he will be worth it!
