Press Release Body: Bingo Records, a leading producer of award winning children's music, is excited to announce they will now be distributing CD titles to music retailers through RED, a division of Sony BMG Music Entertainment. Bingo's first two releases, Beatles Hits For Kids and Motown Hits For Kids, are scheduled for availability through RED on February 19, 2008. RED is widely recognized as the industry leader in independent music distribution. The distribution arrangement is being managed by MRI Associated Labels based in New York. MRI represents a select group of acclaimed small labels across various musical genres, including children's music.
Bingo Records CDs have received multiple awards and endorsements from educators and parenting organizations including The Parent's Choice Foundation, iParenting Media and The Children's Music Web. Current titles include: The Bingo Kids Sing Beatles Hits For Kids (Original and Volume Two), The Bingo Kids Sing Motown Hits For Kids, Smart Beats - Educational Hip Hop Songs For Kids, and Yoga Child - A Peaceful Place Inside.
"This new relationship with MRI and RED means that we'll now have an opportunity to reach more families through larger chain stores and traditional music outlets," says Ric Cohen, co-owner of Bingo Records. "We view this as a natural extension of our growth. We will, of course, continue working with our valued independent retailer customers, and we believe they too will benefit from our enhanced brand identity. We're very excited since this new channel of distribution will allow us to reach a new group of consumers."
MRI President Missi Callazzo notes, "Bingo Records is a welcome addition to our roster. They produce great sounding and fun recordings for kids that really stand out in today's crowded marketplace."
Entertainment attorneys Ric Cohen and Michael Silver started Bingo Records when as parents of young kids they were appalled by the glut of poorly produced children's music that the big name companies were cranking out without a conscience.
"Don't get me wrong on this," says Cohen. "There are many talented and creative children's music artists. There is a vibrant recording and touring scene among the independent musicians. But we could not believe some of the homogeneous crap being pushed on a larger scale - the same old silly songs being done over and over, and lame versions with bland kids singing Britney Spears and other fashionable songs with lyrics that are just totally inappropriate for young kids."
Silver adds, "Bingo is based upon the premise that parents and children should enjoy the experience of listening to music together, and that listening to kid's music does not have to drive adults crazy, nor should it be insulting to the kids themselves."
Cohen continues, "We were listening to Beatles and Motown records during a family and friends dinner. The grown-ups were all loving it, and the kids were sort of paying attention to it, but they were just not as drawn into it as they were to music that featured other kids singing. So we thought what if we could create authentic sounding versions of the greatest songs ever and then add that magical ingredient of children's voices, but with truly talented kids. This would be a fantastically fun way to introduce young kids to this wonderful music in a manner where the kids would feel a natural attachment. And so the idea for our first product line was born, with the motto: DON'T FEED KIDS JUNK MUSIC, RAISE THEM ON THE CLASSICS!"
