Television Shows We Love: The Fresh Beat Band on Nick Jr.
The Fresh Beat Band follows the fortunes of four “teenagers” who are students at music school and members of a pop band known as (you guessed it) The Fresh Beat Band. Other friendly characters in their wholesome, candy-land neighborhood greet them as a group, as in, “Hi, Fresh Beats!” They even have a Prince-like alter ego. You can correctly refer to them as “the band formerly known as The JumpArounds.” This show is a live-action, welcome alternative in the cartoon-heavy world of pre-school television.
The Fresh Beat Band is on tour now, and I jumped on the opportunity to show my daughter the Fresh Beats in person … that is, until I saw the ticket prices. So, that’s (in my area) $109 dollars each? Um … a bit rich for my blood. But if money is no (or little) object, grab it.
You can sample the show, download music, and play Fresh Beat games at the Nick Jr. site.
