The Story of The Mudcakes

“Calling all tiny tots, kindie kids, yummy mummies, delicious daddyos and groovy
grandparents!” When Australian singer Sherry Rich met Boston born musician Rick Plant in
‘music city’ Nashville Tennessee, one thing lead to another and the Mudcakes were born!
Along the way, they have produced two beautiful babies and three CD’s of delightful,
delicious music for young families. The Mudcake’s debut album, ‘Songs for Little Monkeys’
was voted in the top ten children’s CD by The New York Post. Recent sold out shows at
The Melbourne Recital Centre and Arts Centre Spiegeltent plus tours to New Zealand and
the U.S have enhanced their reputation as favourites in the movement towards more organic,
adult friendly kids music - with songs all about the wild and wonderful ups and downs
of family life in styles ranging from Hawaiian to reggae and garage rock.

Based in Australia since 2007, The Mudcakes bring a holistic
approach to children’s entertainment…with singer/songwriter
Sherry Rich and Grammy and Oscar nominated musician, Rick Plant, producing
most of their adult friendly kids music and videos at their home studio in a lovely
historic bayside seaport near Melbourne. Following the success of three critically acclaimed
albums, The Mudcakes celebrated the release of their first ever DVD ‘Music Videos for
Little Monkeys’ in 2012. Ten little movie sweet treats served up to The Mudcakes’
best loved songs including ‘I’m a Sock’ and ‘Monkey Boy’ plus stop-motion and claymation
clips, interviews and a behind-the-scenes fun bite that kids and grown ups will love
in equal measure. “We had terrific fun filming our children and their
friends in our neighbourhood and favourite wild places …beaches, backyards,
back alleys, lakes, gardens, footpaths, dance halls and skate parks
around Melbourne and regional Victoria.”

So come swing your hips, howl and growl, catch a flying monkey,
bang a bongo and even jump onstage to join in the fun!
Perfect for little monkeys under 8 years old and their music loving folks.“
