The Parents’ Choice Award winners have burst onto the family entertainment scene converting countless families to be fans of their quirky universe and highly infectious tunes.
The message of their show is all about living your best life — or as they encourage their followers to “slurp the noodle of life!” and people are all for it. Lard Dog and his 6-piece Band of Shy invite you into their unique audio/visual world complete with catchy songs, interactive props, multi-media graphics, and a pretzel toss!
