We have been fans of the Imagination Movers at my house for just over 3 years now. My husband first read about them in a magazine and we started to DVR the show for the kids to watch. When they came to town for a show that fall, we decided to take the kids to see them. It was a great show and the kids enjoyed dancing in the aisle. Since then, we have attended two other shows - the whole family attended one and my husband and daughter the next one.
If you are not familiar with the Movers, you can check out their website or read this article that I wrote back in 2010 when we were still sort of new to the Movers.
If you are familiar, then you will be excited to hear that they are coming back in concert starting September 21st. Unfortunately for us, their tour is not bringing them to our area this fall - but we did see them in April, so that is probably why.
As the kids are getting older, we listen to a wider variety of music, but we always come back to the Movers. We may go a few days of listening to pop music and then someone will ask for "First Day of School" or "Give Me Your Hand" - two of our favorite songs on our Movers' play list.
You can learn more about the Imagination Movers on their website and reach out to them through Twitter and Facebook.

Family favorites Imagination Movers kick off the second leg of a massive 2012 North
American tour on September 21st in Jacksonville, Florida. The tour begins after brand-new episodes of The Movers’ Emmy Award-winning show started airing on Disney’s new Disney Jr. Channel.
Razor + Tie released The Movers’ ‘Rock-O-Matic’ album this year. The CD/DVD package
features the band’s most irresistible songs to date, live-action and animated music videos, skits that recall old-school Movers comedy heroes like Monty Python and the Monkees and the high-energy hijinks for which The Movers are famous.
Head over to ZooGlobble to watch the fun music video for standout-track “Everybody Sing”:
Since they partnered in 2003, Rich Collins, Scott Durbin, Dave Poche and Scott "Smitty” Smith have grown from a New Orleans-based band to a worldwide brand by creating music that kids and grownups can enjoy together. The blue-suited Movers have earned millions of fans (including Conan O'Brien, Chris Rock and Nia Vardalos) with their combination of danceable power pop songs, catchy choruses, a knack for inspiring audience participation and a heaping helping of onstage silliness.
The Emmy-winning Imagination Movers are bringing their high-energy rock concert for
families to a theater near you! The Disney Junior stars (Rich, Scott, Dave and Smitty) thrill audiences by combining catchy power-pop songs with a knack for inspiring audience participation as well as a healthy dose of onstage silliness inspired by the Movers' real-life experiences as fathers of young kids. This is live musical event that will truly engage the littlest of kids along with their older siblings, parents and grandparents.
