Reviews of Snow Day!
"More thoughtful, reflective takes on what makes being a kid great. Herman's sense of humor is as keen as ever. Buy with confidence!"
- Tom Peterson, Victory Music Review
"Non-stop fun with an enormous variety of musical sounds and styles, silly voices, and wacky lyrics. There is a lot going on in Herman's music, but it's fun and enjoyable, especially for kids. I would suspect that even an 8-year-old who forgot his Ritalin would sit still and give his undivided attention to an Eric Herman performance. His writing is clearly geared toward elementary-age kids, but there is plenty here for parents to enjoy, too."
- Amy Davis, The Lovely Mrs. Davis Tells You What to Think
"It's taken me awhile -- three albums' worth -- to put my finger on how to describe his music, but I think I've got it -- it's a mixture of Shel Silverstein and the Beatles. If you're a big Shel Silverstein fan, definitely check this out."
- Stefan Shepherd, Zooglobble
"Herman has his finger on the pulse of what works in writing, producing and performing songs that appeal to children and adults alike."
- John Wood, Kidzmusic.com
"Eric Herman rocks! Fans of Herman's last two children's CDs know they can count on Herman for fun music that transcends the usual insipidity spoon-fed to kids and painfully tolerated by parents in other children's albums. This new album starts out rockin' with the song Melody Ring and keeps up the energy in a variety of styles (with a couple slower songs that save the energy from getting over-the-top.) Snow Day makes for great car listening, a boon anytime of year. Musically, the CD couldn't be more satisfying. Herman and the band perform rock flavored with disco, calypso, surf music, country-western and more with consistent skill and enthusiasm."
- Rebecca Packard, The Entertainer
"Eric Herman's third release for children celebrates unanticipated interruptions in the daily routine, such as finding out that school has been cancelled due to a snow storm. This fun album features a variety of musical styles, from the movement inviting disco "Dance Like an Animal" to the reggae-styled "Hot Sand". Kids will find these songs almost as much fun as an actual snow day!"
- Kirsten Martindale, School Library Journal
Snow Day! is the third CD by Eric Herman and the Invisible Band. Eric's most upbeat album yet, Snow Day! has 12 tracks including "Hot Sand," "Dance Like an Animal," "Cowboy Bergaleoukaleopaleous," "No Big Deal" and "When I Grow Up." Snow Day! is not a holiday or winter-time album, but embodies the thrill and fun of an unexpected break from routine.
