I’ve mentioned before how much my children love The Fresh Beat Band, Lil Man is obsessed and watches every episode from start to finish without moving from his seat.  And I have to admit that I often catch myself watching with him and even singing along to the songs.  That’s why I was so excited to find out that Nickelodeon is kicking off the second season of The Fresh Beat Band with four new episodes Monday August 30-Thursday September 2!  You can check out all of the details below!


About The Fresh Beat Band

The Fresh Beat Band centers on four best friends – Kiki, Marina, Twist and Shout – in a band who attend music school together and love to sing and dance.  Set to original pop songs, the half-hour series teaches preschoolers about music appreciation and how to express their feelings through movement, song and instrumental music. Kids will also be introduced to the fundamentals of music such as melody, rhythm, tempo and performance styles.  In each episode, preschoolers will sing and dance along as they help The Fresh Beat Band solve everyday challenges.  Viewers also learn the importance of friendship, working together in a positive way and respecting each other’s differences.

 Nickelodeon's preschool comedy series The Fresh Beat Band returns for a second season of hijinks and high-energy music with four new episodes premiering Monday, Aug. 30 - Thursday, Sept. 2, at 11:30 a.m. ET/PT.   Throughout the new 20-episode season, preschoolers will see the Fresh Beats save a circus, perform in a Zydeco parade, camp in the great outdoors, build a brand new car and visit Toyland in a fantastical holiday special.  Along the way, the Fresh Beat Band will learn and play new styles of music, including Jazz, Conga, Bluegrass and Motown.  Plus, every episode will conclude with a “Fresh Beat Blast” where viewers have an opportunity to see themselves sing and dance on the show.  The Fresh Beat Band regularly airs weekdays at 1:30 p.m. ET/PT on Nickelodeon.

The episodes for the season two premiere week are as follows (all times are 11:30 a.m. ET/PT):
    • Monday, Aug. 30 "Circus Mojo" (PREMIERE)
        When only some of the circus arrives, the Fresh Beats jump in to help save it for the Junior Beats.  Twist and Shout claim the flying silks, Kiki performs on the floating lyra and Marina on the soft swing.  The Fresh Beats find their acts harder than they expected.  Marina encourages the others but then needs some encouragement of her own when asked to step in as the ringmaster. Music Curriculum:  Calliope
    • Tuesday, Aug. 31 "Honk Honk" (PREMIERE)
        The Fresh Beats decide to order a new car online.  However, when it’s delivered, it comes in 57 boxes and they can't figure out how to put it together.  Shout rallies them to put the car together by following the instructions one step at a time to build a rockin’ new car! Music Curriculum:  Melody
    • Wednesday, Sept. 1 "Camping with the Stars" (PREMIERE)
        It's summer and the Fresh Beats go camping and hope to spot a shooting star.  They bring their acoustic instruments so they can jam along with the sounds of nature.  But it’s Twist’s first time camping and he has a lot to learn – until he saves the day by staying up and spotting shooting stars! Music Curriculum:  Acoustic Instruments
    • Thursday, Sept. 2  "Singin' in the Rain" (PREMIERE) When it starts raining, Twist, Shout and Kiki run for cover, but the rain sounds inspire Marina to write a new song.  When the rain suddenly stops, Marina can't finish her song.  Twist, Shout and Kiki help Marina and they create an authentic "rhythm-of-the-rain" sound.  In the rain, Marina kicks off a cool song and dance number with everyone wearing bright colored raincoats, hats and carrying umbrellas.
