Mummy, is black more important than white? Mummy, are polar explorers dancing and is the spaghetti noodle the inside of macaronis? Daddy, lets sing about nothing. Mummy, can I wee outside?
You don’t know? You cannot keep answering anymore? Listen to the songs on discinyl (specially packaged CD) „Kašpárek navždy“ (“Jack Forever”) and many questions will be answered to you and kids by musicians like Márdi (Vypsaná fixa), Milan Cais (Tata Bojs), Tonya Graves (Monkey Business) Radek „Gipsy“ Banga (Gipsy.cz), Lenka Dusilová, David Koller, Honza Kalina (Sto zvířat), Blanka Šrůmová (Tichá dohoda) and many others.
Kašpárek v Rohlíku (Jack in the Roll), is a theatre performance for children, a band, a show, lot of fun, Bejbypank, a marquee, stars and maybe even the Jack. Jack in the Roll has started two years ago with the performance of South Bohemian Theatre Puppet Show in České Budějovice followed by super successful album Bejbypank. The following festival tour and reactions of the audience confirmed the fact that there is no other similar project running right now in our country. That is why the director of the play, text writer and project dramaturge David Dvořák has decided, together with other cofounders of Jack in the Roll, to continue and prepare a new performance and new CD as well. The “Jack Forever” album picks up where the album Bejbypunk left off. It is still addressed to both children and adults and it is combining extremely high-quality musical material with excellent lyrics and unique performers. And most importantly, Jack in the Roll offers a novel and genius humor that loosens up the sardonic tenseness invoked by some other attempts at fun for children.
While the Bejbypank album was sometimes almost strictly punk the newer version of Jack has absorbed another colors of world music influences and so is the album multi-layered in the sense of music. Many authors have contributed to the creation of the songs of Jack Forever album and the recording itself has reminded of another LIVE AID global event follow-up. “Thank god we are publishing so called discinyl, a CD put into the classic vinyl format, so we dispose of more room for writing down all the performing artists,” says Ondřej Pečenka. With some exceptions, the music for Dvořák’s lyrics was written by Jack’s musicians (Jirka Šponar, Filip Nebřenský, Márdi, Milan Cais, Dušan Neuwerth, Ondřej Pečenka, Jiří Hradil), another music was added by e.g. Michal Thomes and Martin Horáček. As for the singing and instrumental cooperation, the authors have asked the local scene celebrities or relatives of present performers: Márdi, Milan Cais (Tata Bojs), Tonya Graves (Monkey Business), Radek Banga (Gipsy.cz), Lenka Dusilová, Blanka Šrůmová, David Koller, Honza Kalina (Sto zvířat), Filip Nebřenský a Marek Doubrava (Hm...), Karolína Dytrtová (Miou Miou, Myštet), Eliška a Amálka Dvořákovic, Bětka a Tonča Nebřenských, Kristián Kracík or Onďa a Jáchym Neuwertovi. And actors from Jihočeské divadlo České Budějovice: Jana Vanýsková, Denisa Posekaná, Lucie Škodová, Jiří Šponar, Jan Hönig, Dominik Linka.
Jack in the Roll goes among the people, to the festivals and other events this year as well bringing his painted marquee, jumping giga bed and trampolines.
