Lost in School
PARENTS CHOICE AWARD WINNER!!! '....a listening experience that's breezy and fun as well as substantive.' FAMILY.COM '....a tuneful, wonderfully wacky school-time romp...' LA TIMES 'Del Bianco's smooth professionalism, melodic harmonies, funny voices, telling lyrics and mellow pop-rock style make for terrific listening.' PARENTS CHOICE Lou Del Bianco's fifth release, 'Lost in School' is a unique children's CD: a 45 minute journey that integrates 11 diverse musical moments with a storyline based on a true life experience. Each song and the story itself has a life message about growing up and trying to develop good character traits without being preachy.......... 'Lost in School' takes the listener through Lou's absent minded attempts to deliver a certain 'Wackapooki' game to Mrs. Johnson's 6th grade class. (Based on an actual day from Lou's 3rd grade past) What happens along the way will have kids listening, laughing, and relating to the experience of being 'lost'. Haven't we all been there? After some well intended 'directions' from a few kindly and humorous teachers, P.A. announcements from the principal and kooky advice from Joey the custodian, Lou finds himself getting even more lost, daydreaming, and almost running into the dreaded bully of the school. Lots of things happen to our 'hero' before it all finally works out in the end. What's more, 'Lost in School' is an enhanced CD, so you can watch a music video, listen to alternative mixes and out takes, or print out the lyrics to all of the songs! 'Lost in School' is a humorous and highly engaging experience for kids of all ages! WHO IS LOU DEL BIANCO? 'THE MOST EXCITING NEW ARRIVAL ON THE CHILDREN'S SCENE IN YEARS'.......T.V.
