We are proud to announce that “Keep On Dancin” by Baby Baby is now available! “Keep On Dancin” is the FIRST single from Baby Baby’s forthcoming new album entitled “Big Boy Baller Club”.
“Baby Baby’s new album Big Boy Baller Club (due out this summer) was already on our list of anticipated albums of 2013. The first single from that record “Keep On Dancin’” only stokes the fire. Catchy, fun, and totally chaotic, the song is canned optimism of the Andrew WK variety. They pushed out the track on MLK Day with the statement “Without Martin Luther King Jr. we can honestly say this band would not exist.” Though the song itself may not make much of a statement beyond “you can do it!” its optimism and positivity is infectious.
The video features the band running through their hometown surrounded by friends in animal masks (and a shark! And a gun-sword!!). Like the song itself it doesn’t say much, but it’s not trying to. It’s about fun and celebrating life. And it’s a shit-ton of fun.” – By Nathan Leigh / Afropunk
Please take a minute to listen to “Wah Uh! Uh Oh! by Baby Baby.
“A few nights ago Grant (the drummer) and the rest of Baby Baby brought their version of scuzzed out drunken “fun rock” to Columbia, South Carolina for a show. To properly fuel for their stage antics, the band decided a 7 course meal was in order. Now Baby Baby is not rolling in swag by any stretch of the imagination, unless they are independently wealthy and if that is the case I apologize for not properly doing my homework, so they weren’t looking for the kind of 7 course meal that requires a loan to afford. What they found to satiate this need for filling without unfilling (the wallet) was 2 Fat 2 Fly, a “food truck” that operates under the guise of saving the world from boring chicken wings by stuffing real food inside them. While stuffing real food into wings may seem a bit unnecessary the men behind this truck, Ramone and Corey, take their dream seriously. So seriously, in fact, that they were voted the best wings in Columbia this year. The menu is an ever revolving collection of flavors. Past examples include Jalapeno, Bacon and Cheddar (the Sucka Punch) or breaded mozzarella, Italian herbs and marinara (Chicken Parmesan). When Baby Baby came across the truck, four grown men enjoyed waffle and chicken sandwiches, mac and cheese, stuffed chicken wings with rice pilaf, “the best fried okra ever invented,” french fries that “could have possibly been made in France” and a few other courses that were lost somewhere in a food induced coma. Seven courses, less than 15 dollars. This was, as Grant called it, “the best fast food ever.”
At home Grant likes to dish out his specialty of ramen, cut up hot dogs and PBR. To make it follow these simple steps. First, open the packet of ramen and dispense it into a pot. Second, add water and boil until the bubbles spew over the sides. Next grab a Kroger Hot Dog from the fridge and cut it up like a sushi chef. Add that shit to the pot along with some siracaha. Then add the secret special spices packet. Finally, mix into a bowl, grab a fork, crack a beer and dig in.” – Write.Click.Cook.Listen

“Baby Baby are purveyors of scuzzy punk rock that they refer to as “fun rock”. The quartet of Fontez Brooks (Vocals, Guitar), Kyle Dobbs (Bass), Grant Wallace (Drums), and Colin Boddy (Percussion) indeed attack their music with an enthusiastic flare that’s both raucous and free spirited. Take for instance some of the song title’s from their album, Money, released in May 2011: “I Could Have Taken You to See the Blink 182 Reunion Show but I Spent $20 Taking You Out on a Date Instead and You Didn’t Return My Phone Call so Now I Want My Refund (aka $20)” and “The Sandwich and I Thought We Were Friends”. Based on those kind of titles, I’d have to say that “fun rock” could be the best way to describe Baby Baby. ” Earbuddy

The Gospel Of Rhythm recordings presents to you “Nothing To Lose” by Baby Baby!
“Nothing to Lose” was released on their current album “Money”.
“Baby Baby’s entertainment is infinite. Just look at the album’s title track, cleverly named “$.” Or the bank robbing fantasy “Nothing to Lose” where the perpetrators “have to be home by five.”" – Performer Magazine
“The last track, ‘Nothing to Lose’, is a humorous skit-turned song about robbing a bank which undeniably parades the spunk and ingenuity of this clever foursome.” – The Blue Indian
“The closing track “Nothing To Lose” has such a long music-less intro that it sounds like noise until the band enters at 45 seconds. However, the track ends up being worth the ride taking you into a desperate bank robbery in which band members bicker back and forth until the cops are called and a blood bath ensues.” – Indie Music Reviewer
On Valentine’s Day (February 14th, 2012) a BRAND NEW single by Baby Baby is being released entitled “Haters”.
Now there are two different versions, the clean version and regular version. You can download the clean version of “Haters” for FREE for a limited time!
“RED HOT RIGHT NOW – After the last cycle of touring it was pretty clear that the frenetic rock kings from last year’s SxSW Music Festival was this four-piece out of Atlanta. 2011 saw the release of their debut album, Money, a launch pad for their future. We took an instant liking to their brand of southern “fun rock” and their contagious, die-hard party spirit – so much so we invited the band back to Boston where they were raised the roof at a free show we helped host.
NEW SONG – Well some time has passed and the band (Fontez, Grant, Kyle and Colin) have some new stuff on the way – the new song, Haters – formal release (Gospel of Rhythm – Feb 14) is meant to address the people who went out of their way to shit on Baby Baby’s parade. We all know the type and I can totally stand behind this. We thank the band for the early leak.” – Ryan’s Smashing Life
“RSL blog has the world premier of the new Baby Baby song “Haters,” off the forthcoming LP of the same name. Baby Baby are an Atlanta based pop rock band that has kept with fun rock energy and catchy hooks seen on their previous album, Money. This track manages to keep that energy, while sporting their new “screw the haters” attitude.
The song isn’t particularly original in the message or composition, but it’s a ton of fun. The vocal delivery from front man Fontez Brooks helps elevate this song due to the sheer raw excitement in his voice. Listening to these guys will make you wish it was summer already.” – The Needledrop
“Haters” is the new single from Carrollton, Ga. “fun rock” band Baby Baby, due out Feb. 14 (ironically) via the Gospel of Rhythm Recordings. For the cover, they reprinted part of my review of their debut CD, Money, which I gave 2 out of 5 Stars. I was feeling generous that day and gave them an extra point simply because “Fire” is a catchy little song — something they’ve struggled to reproduce since.
As a cultural meme, “hater” is one of those words that gets used all too often, and incorrectly at that. But I guess I’d expect to be called a “hater” by a band that’s still going on and on about swag in 2012. – Chad Radford / Creative Loafing Atlanta
“You know I how I love to put out a music suggestion for the weekend, and today is no different!! Yesterday I ran across Baby Baby after receiving an email from Team Clermont. I have to say that I couldn’t be happier that said email was sent and that I had the time to explore some of the artists the firm represents. Baby Baby definitely got me through a very boring Thursday afternoon and I have a feeling they will be pushing me through the weekend too.
Baby Baby are if the “Bad Brains and Kings Of Leon had a baby that was styled by In Living Colour and was raised by Lamar of Revenge Of The Nerds” – Clark Westfield
Any band that gets describe in such a fashion as Clark Westfield‘s quote is a must listen just to see how crazy that would sound. In all honesty his description isn’t far off, especially the comment about being styled by In Living Colour. They are for sure a style of “Fun Rock” and that is what Summer is all about isn’t it?
The group is made up of Fontez Brooks (Vocals, Guitar), Kyle Dobbs (Bass), Grant Wallace (Drums), and Colin Boddyv (Additional Percussion). In true indie fashion they recorded their first EP on a iMac back in the Summer of 2009.” On The Couch
“Yet another track from Baby Baby, who continue to roll forward with their excellent 2011 release. London Bridges has an early ’70s Jersey feel to it.” – The Dadada
“”London Bridges” is a heartfelt dance jam about being in the “friend zone.”" – Performer Magazine
“What happens when you place Sublime, Modest Mouse, The Blood Brothers, Fugazi, a few assorted jam bands, short shorts, and a beach ball in a martini shaker with some cheap hard liquor? You’ve got Baby Baby, Georgia’s own “Fun Rock” band. Late this past May (2011), this eccentric group released their first full length album—with all the untamed energy you’d expect.” – Claire Morgan / The Blue Indian
please give a listen to Baby Baby’s “AKA $20″ – the FULL song title is “I Could Have Taken You to See the Blink 182 Reunion Show but I Spent $20 Taking You Out on a Date Instead and You Didn’t Return My Phone Call so Now I Want My Refund (aka $20)”.
Needless to say this song has generated some controversy, but at the end of the day ALL the song is about is taking someone out to date, having that person order the MOST expensive thing on the menu, you pay for the meal and that person NEVER gives you the time of day again. We have all had this experience and can RELATE to this. LOL.
Here is what Baskin Rocks had to state about Baby Baby’s “Money” CD release show:
“Saturday night around 9:45 started quite the musical adventure at the Drunken Unicorn. 9:45 marked the beginning of Baby Baby’s record release show for their new CD “Money”, featuring two other talented groups Machines are People Too and Parachute Musical. Too keep from writing a novel about the night, I am going to stick to Baby Baby, but be sure to take a look at the others’ videos on my video page.
Baby Baby is the head banging brain child of Fontez Brooks and Grant Wallace. A couple months after Fontez first picked up a guitar, both he and Grant, the drummer, decided to start playing while hanging at the pool of their apartment. They went back home to start making “noise” and thus started Baby Baby. Soon their roommate Colin Boddy, “unable to escape”, joined playing percussion. Last but not least came bassist Kyle Dobbs.
There music seems to capture the angst of the “unpopular” crowd. It is all about being turned down by girls and having no money to do the things they want to do. With the energy and passion they put into their music, and with the band’s general appeal, I do not think money is will be a big issue in the future.
While playing live, it is easy to tell how much they enjoy doing what they are doing. It is impossible not to dance around and have a good time when Baby Baby is on stage. Even when they are not playing music, their stories and antics will keep you having a great time. The record release show just exploded at the end while playing “Fire”, their first single off the record. By the end of the song, both Fontez and Colin were literally hanging from the rafters of the venue while the two opening bands finished playing the music.
To sum up my experience of the show, I have never had so much fun watching four shirtless men in short shorts perform in front of me. If you have a chance to see them on the “$10″ east coast tour, go!!!”
