By: Press Release

For Immediate Release








BURBANK, CA – September 21, 2009 - With an Emmy Award-winning Disney Channel series and a newly released Walt Disney Records album under their belt, the wildly popular kid-pop quartet Imagination Movers will launch their first-ever U.S. concert theater tour. The 39-date “Live From The Idea Warehouse Tour” kicks off October 10 in Shreveport, Louisiana and wraps up December 13 in Spokane, Washington.  Details on the tour can be found at Tickets for all dates are on sale now.

"Imagination Movers" is a hit with audiences around the world, airing in over 55* countries/ territories and in 12 languages since September 2008. In the U.S., the series ranks among TV's Top 5 programs with preschoolers 2-5 in 3Q09 to date, and year to date has reached over 46 million unduplicated Total Viewers. Recently, the quartet was honored with their first Daytime Emmy Award for outstanding original song in the children's show/animation category. Globally, "Imagination Movers" is the #1 original Playhouse Disney series launch ever among kids and Total Viewers in Australia, and in 1Q09 ranked as the #1 series on Playhouse Disney in the UK, Denmark and Sweden, while ranking as a Top 5 series in Italy, India and the U.S.


The Imagination Movers are: Rich Collins, a former journalist and father of five; Scott Durbin, a teacher and father of two; Dave Poche, an architect and father of two; and Scott "Smitty" Smith, a New Orleans firefighter who was part of the Hurricane Katrina search and rescue effort. “Imagination Movers" features the blue-suited band – Rich, Scott, Dave and Smitty – as brain-stormers working hard to solve “idea emergencies” in their Idea Warehouse. Each episode features five songs.

After signing to Walt Disney Records, Imagination Movers released their debut album “Juice Box Heroes” in March 2008. The album ranked in the Top 10 on iTunes Children’s Music chart. Parenting Magazine awarded it a “Parenting Pick” and Common Sense Media recognized Imagination Movers among the Best TV of 2008, citing the quartet’s “addictive sense of humor and quest for fun.” Their new Walt Disney Records album, "For Those About to Hop," shipped in July. The album’s smart, high-energy pop was described in the New York Times as “prized by many parents for non-condescending lyrics and music that evokes the Beastie Boys or Red Hot Chili Peppers.”         

“Imagination Movers” airs weekdays at 9:30 a.m., ET/PT and weekends at 10:00 a.m., ET/PT during Disney Channel's Playhouse Disney programming block for preschoolers. The series carries a TV-Y parental guideline.
