Play Date is an award winning kindie music band that consists of husband-and-wife duo Greg Attonito, lead vocals and founding member of punk rock legends, The Bouncing Souls (1989-present) and singer/songwriter Shanti Wintergate.
The duo began by releasing the children’s book I Went for a Walk, recent winner of Creative Child’s 2014 Preferred Choice Award and touring the US doing author/illustrator readings while playing music for kids across the country. This sprang the concept for Play Date. Inspired by their love of music, creativity and adventure, Greg and Shanti have created top-drawer music for the whole family with their album, Imagination which has just received Creative Child’s 2014 Seal of Excellence Award. “There's always been a strong sense of self-discovery and independence in good kids' music, and Play Date's album, Imagination has that for the punk rocker in training.” -Stefan Shepherd, NPR. These upbeat, euphonious, well-crafted songs will delight your ears and have you singing and dancing with or without your kids in no time. In addition to touring throughout the country, Play Date has been a featured performer at Yo Gabba Gabba Live, “Get the Sillies Out!” tour, Austin City Limits Festival, Treefort Music Fest, Kindiecomm and Lollapalooza.
