Fresh Beat Band of Spies

The Fresh Beat Band of Spies features the same band members from Nick’s live action show, The Fresh Beat Band, but adds three key ingredients to the jam: animation, spying, and Bo Monkey! Because really, how are they supposed to get any spying done without a monkey? Not gonna happen.

Two of the Fresh Beat Band’s names are ‘Twist’ and ‘Shout’ named after a song that was written by Phil Medley & Bert Berns in 1961.

Scott Kraft and Nadine Van Der Velde

First, Scott and Nadine got married. Then things got really interesting! The couple went on to produce several kids’ shows, including Rolie Polie Ollie, Little Miss Spider and Gerald McBoingBoing before creating their own shows, The Fresh Beat Band and its successor, The Fresh Beat Band of Spies. Part of their inspiration in making the series was to give kids great, catchy pop songs that are also age-appropriate.
Before working behind the scenes, Nadine & Scott were working actors, they know what great acting looks like.
