The Boo Hoo Crew was starting to form in the winter of 2011 after Clint had self-published a kids book called "Pack Rat Pat, Don't Take That!" He went to a few local libraries and read it to the kids but ended up playing a few kids songs to go along with it. One thing led to another and, without really realizing it, the next thing you know Clint is fronting a band of parents playing original kids tunes: Clint Perry & The Boo Hoo Crew.
We've since evolved our name into just "The Boo Hoo Crew" or "The BHC" as our music has progressed into a more "mature" style. We want parents to rock out too, but to know, with certainty, that the words are safe for everyone. The biggest compliment we get is when a mom says, "i drove all the way to work the other day, had your CD on, and didn't even realize I was listening to my kids music."
We've done, at least 450 shows in San Diego. Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura and Riverside Counties since we officially formed in the Spring of 2011, including LEGOLAND, Theatricum Botanicum, Quail Botanical Gardens Family Fun Nights, The San Diego County Library’s Annual Book Festival, The New San Diego Children’s Museum’s New Year’s Bash, Rady Children's Hospital, Energy 103.7 Kid's Crane, Pasadena's Kidspace for Noon Year's Eve, Rubio's Coast Fest, San Diego Model Railroad Museum, and a lot more!
With songs like “Rocket Ship”, "Vroom”, "Shake Your Pirate Booty" and “Karate Tickle” you’ll see why we've had a couple top sellers on CD Baby, and Editor's & Staff Picks, have won a Parents' Choice Award, and been one of the top, if not #1 Kids Band, on ReverbNation for 2 years now. We'll have you and your kids picking animals out of a “barn”, doing the “pirate jig”, screaming “aeiou” at the top of your lungs and more. But in all that fun we do try teach great lessons, with socially responsible songs like "Super Hero", “Reduce and Reuse" or "Pirate Booty Too". We do our best to invigorate imagination with songs like “Submarine”, “Hoo Hoo” or “Teddy Bear March”. We educate with songs like “AEIOU”, “Creature In The Sea”, “Triangle, Square, A Ring” and more, but we figure, if you’re gonna do it, why not ROCK IT! We don’t sit down and you won’t either!
Stephanie is a veteran teacher with experience teaching math & history to high school and middle school classes at Santa Fe Christian School, The Classical Academy & Valley Christian School in San Marcos, CA (currently).
Now he's found his way into the CREW thanks to a little luck and a bit of good fortune, taking him in to North County Guitar Specialists. We are more than thrilled to have his good demeanor, fun smile, enthusiastic approach to music and downright amazing chops in The Boo Hoo Crew.
