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.
