MEET THE RUNAWAY HAMSTERS!



Meet The Runaway Hamsters, a country/pop family group made up of 12 year old Isabella and 11 year old triplets Abby, Gabby, and Riley. We spoke to kids and they were so excited to share all the fun things they have been up to.

Believe it or not these guys have already been singing for 5 years. "When we were little we used to play piano together and then we learned other instruments" they shared. Isabella plays drums (which she thinks is awesome), Abby is on keys, Gabby the bass guitar and harmonica, and Riley plays electric guitar.

The Runaway Hamsters career started  when they found out that one of their classmates  had a brain tumor. Wanting to help they decided to record a song to raise money for the children's hospital called "Runaway Hamsters". The name came from seeing their 4 pet hamsters run all over the house. The kids love giving back and helping others. The band's motto is "We help friends" and boy do they ever.

Last year they raised $114,000 for the Children's Miracle Network. Isabella, Abby, Gabby, and Riley are Jr. Ambassadors. They like to visit with sick kids in the hospital when they have time, saying it's very cool.  The band also  recently performed in LA for Dream Night. "We got to play at the Los Angeles Zoo and when we sang Pizza Pirate guess what Captain Jack came by." In February they will be performing at Dance Marathon for the Children's Miracle Network.

You can check out the new single "A Little Country".  Isabella, Abby, Gabby, and Riley filmed the music video in Nashville at Three Ring Farm. The kids had a blast, saying the best part was seeing the animals and visiting with the director. "The horses were very sweet. I've never seen sweeter horses."

While in Nashville they played on WSM Radio, and loved hearing their song on the airwaves. The group also performed at the infamous Bluebird Cafe, and went to the CMA Festival. Mom says Nashville is a very family oriented welcoming community, and they have been offered a lot of opportunities. They plan on returning for CMA Festival in June.
 
Right before Christmas the Runaway Hamsters were in Las Vegas for Cowboy Christmas, where they got to meet Dolly Parton. "She was so surprised that she saw a band called Runaway Hamsters."

What are their plans for the future? They are excited to hang out with Lo-Cash and write songs. When asked about their dreams, I'm told "sing at the Grand Ole Opry".

The kids love to write songs, and tell me it isn't that hard. "If you feel happy write a happy song, if you feel sad write a sad song with a happy ending." The four get their inspiration from their parents, who they proudly tell us sing as well.
