Jungle Gym Jam Tunes Included in New Jason Didner Album

“It’s a Jersey Thing” to Contain Two Jungle Gym Jam Tracks

This Friday, 7/15, I’m releasing an album that’s the culmination of 25 years of writing and recording rock songs of Jersey humor and Jersey soul. Appropriately titled “It’s a Jersey Thing,” this album catches me in the act of writing about what I know – my home state! So, I’ve chosen “Jersey Dinosaurs” and “Summertime Santa” from our Lollipop Motel album to join tunes like “You Can’t Get There in Jersey” and “Jackals on the Prowl” in capturing the spirit and attitude of New Jerseyans and the place where we’re from.

And you can expect those songs to appear in my live set whether I’m playing in Jersey at a Jungle Gym Jam show for kids or a Jason Didner show for all ages. I’m performing an album launch concert Saturday, July 23 at Pilsener Haus & Biergarten in Hoboken at 5PM and will play the entire album, including those 2 songs.

Thanks so much for following along with my kids-oriented and all-ages versions of my act. It’s nice to see both sides come together here!

You can pre-order “It’s a Jersey Thing” now and get 2 tracks right away. The rest of the album (including the Jungle Gym Jam tracks) will arrive on Friday.

New video: “Super Clean Escape Machine”

A rock song and video about the many benefits of cycling

This song comes from my “other” musical personality (rock songs more for grown-ups), but easily crosses over into the Jungle Gym Jam’s specialty of rock songs for kids and families.

My father Bob, a fellow cyclist, told me he wrote a poem about cycling and would like me to set it to music, and that he had a concept for a video.

The anthemic rock track features multiple layers of harmony vocals, guitars, and keyboards. There’s a slide guitar solo that give s a nod to George Harrison’s immediately recognizable style.

New Jungle Gym Jam songs are in the works. Sign up below for announcements of singles and videos as they come.
