Total Eclipse of the Rainbow- Rainbow Rock Band

One of the brightest stars to come out of the DC metro area kids’ music scene is Parents’ Choice Award-winning Rainbow Rock Band, which performs more than 120 live shows each year. Kids and families around the country await the appearance of the band’s second album, Total Eclipse of the Rainbow which comes out, today!
