Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band were crowned the very first U.S. based artists to win a Latin GRAMMY in the Children’s Album category for their album Fantastico. Garnering six Emmy Nominations and one win for their work on the EMMY award winning show “Lishy Lou and Lucky Too,” husband and wife duo Lucky Diaz and Alisha Gaddis have been named “THE face of kindie music” by the Washington Post, “Superstars” by national parenting site Red Tricycle, “The Rolling Stones of Kids Music” by the Style Network, and “The #1 in COOLEST kids music!” by People magazine.

As Billboard advises, this is “children’s music you should know.” Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band’s sun-filled pop beats have been featured by NPR’s All Things Considered, NPR Music, Alt Latino, Billboard, USA Today, The New York Times. They and their music have  been featured on UnivisionNBCUniversal’s Sprout TV, American Airlines and more. Logging hundreds of thousands of miles, sharing the music of their seven albums, and multiple #1 Sirius XM Kids Place Live hits, Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band delivers smart, crafty lyrics with irresistibly fresh pop beats.  As children’s music nexus Zooglobble states, “It’ll take you all of about 15 minutes to become a fan of Lucky Diaz.”

The band’s interactive, multi-cultural, mixed language and movement based musical performances please both child and adults. Catch their busy summer tour schedule, including sets at Lollapalooza, at
