Lard Dog and the Band of Shy’s Life’s a Real Dream

Earlier this year, Lard Dog & The Band of Shy took a trip from Belopio to Earth to add some “wang dang diddle” to your life. After 15 weeks as an off-Broadway production, Life’s a Real Dream has landed and transformed into a 23-track album you can enjoy right at home. Full of the absurd, the adorable and the infectious, think a little bit rock ‘n’ roll and a dash of Wonderland with an upbeat swing. Gems include “Listen to the Bob Hope” and “Life Is Like a Noodle,” sure to have you laughing while you dance your heart out.
