'I knew that with Nathan producing this CD, it would turn out great and be fun for kids. What I didn't know, was that it would be great and fun for us grown-up kids too.'
- Blue Miller, Grammy Award winning artist & producer (India Arie)
'An opening guitar lick borrowed from one of John Mayer's palaces of seduction turns an endearing, no-more-monsters-at-bedtime tune into the most Triple A-commercial-radio ready kindie song to come along in ages. 'Lovabye Dragon' This is Track 1 material; the kind of song that should be wearing out the satellite signal of Sirius/XM's Kids Place Live'
- Jeff Bogle, OWTK (out with the kids)
'The Happy Racers have hit the sweet spot in Family & Children's Music: songs that kids AND parents will immediately love and want to hear again and again - in the minivan, around the kitchen, blasting from the iPad. Kids will love it because the music is infectious and fun; parents will love it because the production - thanks to the Happy Racers resident Oz, Nathan Meckel' is aimed right at their ears. Mom will swear she's heard these songs before on a Scrubs episode. And who knows she just might!'
- Roger Day, Parent's Choice Gold Award winner
'As an educator, I couldn't help but visualize what a great resource this CD is for elementary teachers. With 'Move Your Body' playing, students would enthusiastically do their exercising as never before; Too often teachers have failed to capitalize on the power of music to enhance learning. Here is a tool, created with kids in mind, that fills the bill. No teacher should be without it.'
- Dr. John Lounsbury, The John H. Lounsbury Award for Distinguished Service is the highest award given by the Association for Middle Level Education (AMLE).
'The Happy Racers were an absolute hit during the Family Night Out series at Cheekwood! Everyone loved their energetic performance, and the kids rocked out in the dance zone in front of the band! Our crowd was huge and they kept them engaged the whole time. We can't wait to have The Happy Racers back to Cheekwood!'
