Our new album Dinosaurs and Metaphors
is available now wherever you get music!
Inspiring Kids' Hearts and Minds with Music!
Themes of these 15 original songs run the gamut of everyday life, from the joy of a lazy Saturday morning to a celebration of Monday. Kids who are enduring a haircut or the hiccups or even bugs on the toilet will find comedic relief here, and they’ll laugh along at the offbeat language lessons of “Your Love Is a Metaphor” or the idea of “Dinosaurs on Roller skates.” The album finishes with a raucous and affirmative rock anthem, “Superstar.”
A child’s world is a complicated place, and Danny Weinkauf likes to poke around its nooks and crannies, like an English muffin with dripping jelly. With Dinosaurs and Metaphors, Danny scrutinizes the mundane and the metaphysical from a kid’s frame of reference and wraps everything in a handy-dandy, enjoyable package.
Weinkauf performs expertly on guitars, bass, ukulele, piano, drums, and percussion. The various guest vocalists are excellent and the harmonies soaring.

Grammy winner and longtime bassist for They Might Be Giants, Danny Weinkauf has released 5 albums of clever, catchy, sometimes educational, and always fun music for kids and families. He performs live with his Red Pants Band which features Tina Kenny Jones, Steve Plesnarski, Russ Jones, and occasionally Brendan Finnegan. Parents and Teachers love to introduce kids to topics from Science, Language, and other interesting subjects in an entertaining and musical way (but don't tell the kids that they like the music too).
