We are happy to announce the release of our first Audible Original Podcast for kids:

Michael & the Rockness Monsters World Tour  on Audible Now! 

Jam with intergalactic rock stars Michael & The Rockness Monsters as they fire-up the Milky Way with an extra special tour of Earth! Sing along as Michael, Dibbs, Lucy and Robi set out on adventures and celebrate cultures around the world.

Michael & the Rockness Monsters will have your whole family singing and dancing along! Catch them now, before they head out for their next world tour!


From Rockness Music founder Michael Napolitano comes Michael & The Rockness Monsters. The shows and music of this act shine with creativity. The music is both silly and serious—filled with catchy melodies and thick instrumentation. Live, the band takes on new life with a full horn section, props and becomes a what New York Family calls “an odyssey of imagination”.

Frontman Michael Napolitano is the founder of Rockness Music. Offering music classes, parties, and programing for schools, Rockness brings a fun fusion of music and education that children, parents and teachers can get excited about.
