Songs performed include "Here We Go, "A Friend Like You," "Bananas" and "Just Like A Rockstar," among others. The Fresh Beat Band soundtracks - The Fresh Beat Band: Music From The Hit TV Show and The Fresh Beat Band: More Music From The Hit TV Show Vol 2.0 - are currently available on iTunes and in stores everywhere.

In each episode, preschoolers sing and dance along as they help The Fresh Beat Band solve everyday challenges. Preschoolers learn the fundamentals of music such as melody, rhythm, tempo and performance styles and the importance of friendship, working together, and respecting each other's differences.
