Rolie Polie Guacamole
Jersey natives Frank Gallo & Andrew Tuzhilin created Rolie Polie Guacamole in 2006 while living in Brooklyn, NY. Over the next 15 years, they’ve played thousands of shows, recorded seven records, receiving top picks from Boston.com, Time Out NY Kids, and Time Out Chicago.
Winner of the prestigious Parents’ Choice® and NAPPA Awards, Rolie Polie Guacamole has developed a smart, parent-friendly musical style that dresses up original tunes and classic covers with vibrant harmonies and deft instrumental layers, plugging in a sizzling electric current of rhythm that lights up lyrics humming with relevance and humor.
Wrote Trevor Gage of Boston’s WERS-FM, “When you think of kids’ music, what do you see? Freddy Spaghetti? A jaded hipster in a colorful costume alluding to some bizarre form of Brazilian anime? Rolie Polie Guacamole skips stones over those clichés and splashes onto the scene with a technically savvy and imaginative sound that speaks to children and reminds their parents of the golden age of 1990s music”.
Their 7th album Avocado came out just in time for the pandemic shutdown and was a hit among fans stuck in their homes with young ones. As the pandemic subsided the band released 65 new songs between October 2022 - November 2023.
The new albums feature:
Frank Gallo, vocals/guitar/uke/synth
Andrew Tuzhilin, bass/vocals
Dean Jones, vocals/synth/drums/production
Rossen Nedelchev, drums
Katie Mullins, vocals
Jane Scarpantoni, Cello
