Peggosus is a New Hampshire-based band that plays rompin' stompin', old-fashioned good time original music for children and families. Their music reaches across the generations, touching the child in all of us. When Peggo and Paul Hodes, the band's founders, had kids of their own, they imagined transforming the rock 'n' roll they grew up with into a musical experience to captivate the whole family. Since 1985,Peggosus has been hailed for its unique brand of refreshing live music. The five musicians of Peggosus celebrate a blend of diverse musical traditions in their recordings... from hip wigglers and rollicking rockers to heart-tingling ballads and wonderful sing-alongs. Their music draws on rock, folk, jazz, blues, and country influences.
