It’s tough to be a DJ when the parties are all remote. DJ Willy Wow (William March) experienced this firsthand during our pandemic year. With the world reopening, Willy has dropped his latest rave collection, It’s All Good In the Naturehood (featuring Grotch the Sasquatch) on 8 Pound Gorilla Records.
Naturehood spends its eight songs educating kids to the importance to conservation (as it directly relates to forest fires on “California Fire”) and gives background on the character of Grotch on “We Found Bigfoot! (Believe It Or Not)” and “Funky Bigfoot.” National parks and camping get shout-outs on “More S’Mores” and “Butterflies.” COVID is not ignored, with mentions on “Curbside DJ Slide” (“Don’t forget to wear your mask”), as well as a chorus on “We Found Bigfoot”:
We know you waited
We’re glad you made it
Let’s celebrate it
And Grandma’s vaccinated
Willy is not new to the DJ game, having first entered the arena way back in 2005. He and his cast of characters have been featured on Sirius XM Kids Place Live and performed at four annual White House Easter Egg Rolls. This collection ably showcases his ability to generate kid-friendly old school dance music for all ages. Willy (and Grotch) are out of the woods on Naturehood – now it’s up to the rest of us to get vaccinated so the party never ends.
Here is the video for Willy’s song, “More S’Mores”:
