Apple Brains is a children's musical group focused entirely on healthy eating. Our mission is to get kids big and small to discover the joys of fruits, vegetables, and good health! Allen "Apple Brains" Bleyle started honing this focus while working as a "Nutrition Musician" for the Network For a Healthy California, where he penned songs for Head Start (ages 3-5) and Elementary school classrooms (ages 5-10) about fruits and veggies. Writing and performing directly for kids ensured the songs to be kid tested and approved, and he expanded his repertoire to appeal to slightly older minds as well while working the summers at Farm and Wilderness summer camps in Vermont. Once wielding enough material, he and friends recorded Apple Brains' debut album, "Get Fruity!!" to humbling critical acclaim (5/5 stars from about.com) and happy dance moves of delight by kids all over.

Known throughout the punk rock community for his band Skankin' Pickle and his label Asian Man Records, Mike Park has now entered into the realm of children's music with a new album, "SMILE". It bears his own son and daughter's seal of approval, so if you don't like the record, they are to blame. 12 tracks that deal with crossing the street, dancing like a worm, and eating apples. YES, very political!! Backed by a full band, he's ready to looking to play throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
