As every family with youngsters in the DC area already knows, Rocknoceros (pronounced like rhinoceros) is three guys: Coach Cotton, Williebob, and Boogie Woogie Bennie, who make wildly popular, award-winning music for the whole family.
The three Rocknoceros bandmates "grew up" (if they ever did) in Northern Virginia. Boggie and Coach, best friends since they were four years old, remember endlessly spinning Beatles records in Boogie's suburban bedroom while "waiting for Williebob" who appeared on the scene in high school. The three have been making music ever since, although it wasn't until 20 years later in 2005, when Coach Cotton was raising young'uns of his own, that the inspiration for Rocknoceros finally crystallized.
Rocknoceros has since dominated the Washington, DC children's music scene and gained significant national recognition as well...

"Rocknoceros' blend of infectious and catchy educational tunes were perfect for the Smithsonian's younger fans. It's rare to find a group of talented, professional musicians who can turn learning into such a fun, toe-tapping experience. We can't wait to have them back!" - Smithsonian
