The Not-Its!

This is the #1, official facebook page of The Not-Its! Thanks for joining up!

Meet The Not-Its!, A rockin' band from Seattle making music for children and their parents. Their debut album, We Are The Not-Its!, took the kindie rock scene by storm, receiving a Fids & Kamily Music Award for one of the best family music albums of 2009—unprecedented for a freshman release. It’s clear they are on a mission to make kids dance, with up-tempo, power-pop hits families love.

Featuring the vocals of Sarah Shannon (of ‘90s Sub Pop band Velocity Girl), The Not-Its! combine crunchy guitars with smooth, four-part harmonies, all nestled within fantastic pop gems. The Not-Its! may also be the nation’s best-dressed kids’ band, sporting skinny pink ties and fluffy pink tutus that appeal to kids’ discerning fashion sense. Their high-energy stage performances are guaranteed to get audiences on their feet and jumping around with delight.

The Not-Its! continue to rock the socks off the greater Seattle area, as well as across the nation! Check out their website for a show near you...
