"I started when Ella was about one," explains Lucky Diaz, discussing the musical introductions for his now 10-year-old daughter. "One of the first things I purchased Ella was a cute little boom box. Every night before she went to sleep I would play a CD of something I wanted her to be exposed to. She learned about so many artists this way. THE BEATLES, STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN, MILES DAVIS, THE BEACH BOYS, BUDDY HOLLY,  the list goes on and on." Leading LUCKY DIAZ AND THE FAMILY JAM BAND, he, along with his wife, Alisha Gaddis, have become some of the biggest names in the growing "kindie" movement - their prolific output resulting in no less than four albums since 2012 - two of them in Spanish.

With Rock Father's Day less than a week away, there's quite a few companies that are showing respect for Dads and the changing face of Fatherhood... some of which you've even seen featured here on THE ROCK FATHER. While the efforts of all are appreciated, Father's Day wouldn't be complete without an appearance by one company that has been championing Dads from the start, featuring #RealDadMoments each and every day, 365 days a year, spreading smiles through their social networks and helping to show Dads in a positive light.
