What their fans don’t know is that these four chaps were cursed by an evil wizard 500 years ago to become hairy, scary little creatures. Their buddy, Magic Alex was also cursed right along with them and is determined to crack the evil wizards curse and it takes 500 years to find a spell that does it…. But only half way with all of them becoming humans by night and changing back to creatures by day. Each episode will feature an original song by The Grimps, reflecting the positive theme in the episode. Sirgiovanni has partnered with two highly recognized people from the music industry. Ron Alexenburg, former President of CBS Records who signed & worked with artists like Michael Jackson, Boston, Meatloaf and more. And Tony Bongiovi, who produced for The Ramones, Talking Heads and more. Tony will be producing the music of The Grimps. Several new original songs have been recorded and produced by Tony Bongiovi for upcoming episodes as well as the shows theme song, “We’re The Grimps” written by Ron Dante and Freddie Cannon.
