The Fresh Beat Band Live in Concert Tour Presented By Nickelodeon features Kiki (Yvette Gonzalez-Nacer), Marina (Tara Perry) and Twist (Jon Beavers) and Shout (Thomas Hobson), performing The Fresh Beat Band hits from seasons one, two and three of the Nickelodeon live-action music series that teaches preschoolers about music appreciation. Songs performed include "Here We Go, "A Friend Like You," "Bananas" and "Just Like A Rockstar," among others. The Fresh Beat Band soundtracks - The Fresh Beat Band: Music From The Hit TV Show and The Fresh Beat Band: More Music From The Hit TV Show Vol 2.0 - are currently available on iTunes and in stores everywhere. The album features catchy, preschool-friendly tracks culled from three seasons of the TV series.

The Fresh Beat Band debuted in 2009 and is now in its third season on Nickelodeon. The Fresh Beat Band centers on four best friends - Kiki, Marina, Twist and Shout- in a band who love to sing and dance. In each episode, preschoolers sing and dance along as they help The Fresh Beat Band solve everyday challenges. Preschoolers learn the fundamentals of music such as melody, rhythm, tempo and performance styles and the importance of friendship, working together, and respecting each other's differences. Ne-Yo, Justin Bieber, Jason Mraz, and Sarah Chalke have all hung out with the Fresh Beats and additional celebrity guests will appear in season three.
