"If Ben Rudnick says he's ready to 'Blast Off!', you had better hold onto something tight. This disc should have a fuse!"
~ Buzz McClain, Washington Post
“The words "catchy" and "irrepressible" just begin to describe the string-band music uncorked by a quintet of gifted instrumentalists.”
~ Downbeat Magazine
Continuing in the tradition of their award winning CDs, “Emily Songs” and “Fun and Games”, “Blast Off!” goes where no family record has gone before! Bringing you music you’ll be happy to listen to anytime.
Ben Rudnick & Friends continue to mix originals with classics, all on a foundation of adventurous musicianship and a healthy sense of humor. Beautiful artwork puts the cherry on top of the music on this specially packaged CD.
