Little Kids Rock, a non-profit music education program that provides free instruments and instruction to children in public schools, announced the completion of another celebrity recording session for its upcoming project, Little Kids, Big Fans: Stars United For Music Education. Two tracks, “Little Dinosaur” and “Everyone Loves the Rainbow,” were recorded at Manhattan Center Studios.

The new CD features high-profile artists covering versions of songs written by Little Kids Rock students. Artists already on board include Billy Joel’s percussionist, Liberty DeVitto, Public Enemy’s Brian Hardgroove, Victor Burks of the Fine Arts Militia, Tom Johnson (Doobie Brothers), Jason Newsted, (Metallica, Voivod), blues guitarist Roy Rogers, Zigaboo Modaliste (Meters) and singer Austin Willacy.

Future stages of the production will include several more recording sessions, post-production/mixing/mastering, art production, CD duplication, distribution, marketing and several benefit concerts. In the coming months, both Manhattan Center Studios in New York and the Plant in Sausalito, Calif., will be donating their time and services to Little Kids Rock. The CD is slated for release in December 2004.

In other Manhattan Center News, its sister company, Manhattan Center Productions, recently signed an agreement with NewYorkDVD to be the preferred, in-house provider of expert-level DVD authoring and project development for MCP clients, including live music and performance acts booked in both the Grand Ballroom and the Hammerstein Ballroom, which are operated by Manhattan Center Studios.
