Rolie Polie Guacamole!

Rolie Polie Guacamole performed an awesome show on Thursday,
July 25 at the Children’s Museum in Easton! In case you missed it, or you just
really enjoyed it, we spoke with lead singer and guitarist Frank Gallo to learn
more about the band

RPG consists of Frank Gallo along with Andrew Tuzchilin on
the bass and Peter Barr on the drums. The New York based band started in 2006.
Frank’s father, Lou Gallo was a children’s musician and inspired Frank to
follow in his footsteps. Frank called up his buddy Andrew and they got to work
forming Rolie Polie Guacamole! With their first drummer Christian McCarthy,
they demoed in 2006 and put out records in 2008, 2010, and 2012.
“We started out with the theme of eating healthy,” Frank
recounts, “after playing some live shows we went more in the direction of
movement. Now we’re focusing on the fitness aspect” Rolie Polie Guacamole
focuses on healthy living. They say their mission is, “to engage audiences from
0-100 with catchy songs about staying active and eating healthy with an
emphasis on movement.” Frank says they they’ve coined the term “musement”
meaning music and movement: two things you are guaranteed to find at a RPG
Among things to anticipate at a show, Frank says to expect
“a tight band playing catchy songs. Parents should be happy when they go home
with kids who want to take a nap!” He later summarizes with a laugh: “expect
healthy goodness.”
Rolie Polie Guacamole loves performing for kids. Their
favorite part? “They actually listen a lot better than adult audiences in a lot
of ways!” Frank explains, “They know our lyrics, and they’re loyal fans. And
the songs are really fun and wholesome which ends up making you feel really
good after the show. I’ve noticed I smile a lot more after playing a show.”
It’s sufficed to say that everybody at a Rolie Polie
Guacamole show leaves with a smile! Rolie Polie Guacamole shows truly involve
everybody there. “The songs that directly engage the kids are always the best!”
says Frank. There are songs that get the kids jumping, songs to get them singing,
and songs to get them thinking! Parents will love to see their children having
a blast and getting involved with music that has a positive message.
Right now RPG is working on expanding their reach. Where
they mainly play shows from Massachusetts to Pennsylvania, they are moving to
play more shows in Chicago, DC and even Seattle!
They won’t forget New England though! Frank ends the
interview with stating, “We love coming to New England and hope to be back
If you’d like, you can catch Rolie Polie Guacamole this

Passim for a Halloween show!
