Our album “THUMB WRESTLING CHAMPIONS” has been out for almost a year now, so we were pleasantly surprised to find that the School Library Journal had recently reviewed it! The reviewer, Beverly Wrigglesworth, called it a “funny album that will have listeners rolling on the floor laughing!”….we agree (if we do say so ourselves)!!
Thank you so much to MRJEFF2000 for his fun review of "THUMB WRESTLING CHAMPIONS!!
"The family band concept has existed forever. Most recently, the Oot 'n Oots feature four brothers and one of their daughters. Keeping in the sibling spirit is the brother and sister team The Green Orbs. Eddie RosenBerg III and Heather Hirshfield first decided to collaborate musically in 2015 for the YouTube Audio Library. Three years (and 50 songs) later, the duo have released their debut CD, THUMB WRESTLING CHAMPIONS.
While every family has their resident goofball, the Green Orbs divide the wackiness evenly. That way, Eddie can sing "Soup is the best food in the world" and Heather can belt the '60s Romper Room meets Shindig! romp, "The Suction Cup Shuffle.""

Thank you to My Crafty Zoo for this fun review of our new album........
"I sit here to review this disc, completely alone with no children. This should be interesting. The title song opens up with a fun 80’s technology beat and gets your head moving whether you want it to or not. It’s super fun to listen to, silly as can be and even makes me laugh without having any little ones being silly! There’s definitely some 80’s vibe going on, along with a bug ballad (that you’ll really want to listen to, I swear), and even the much needed As Seen On TV type commercial with a little diddy! I am for real loving this disc and can’t wait to share it with my niece! The lyrics are absolutely silly!"
An amazing review of our upcoming album "THUMB WRESTLING CHAMPIONS" by JP's Music Blog"!
**The brother and sister duo of Eddie RosenBerg III and Heather Hirshfield are preparing to release their new album in September as The Green Orbs. The new release titled "Thumb Wrestling Champions" will become available on September 7th, and features 14-tracks that are all about having a good time. The album begins with the eighties, Devo-like delivery of the title song as they sing about what it takes to become the "Thumb Wrestling Champion." They slow the tempo down for the gentle, acoustic folk tale of "Doug The Bug," before delivering a commercial for "Monster Spray," which also pops up a couple more times on this new release. The Green Orbs continue with the story of "Ruby The Tooth Fairy," before closing their new album with the addictive waltz of "Robert Broccoli" and their mellow rock tribute to "Soup."**

Another great review!! Thank you Lee Littlewood of Creators Syndicate!!
"Thumb Wrestling Champions" by the Green Orbs.
The debut album from a brother and sister who clearly relish the wacky, "Thumb Wrestling Champions" hits the ground running with absurdity, about a contest broken up by Abraham Lincoln. Dance number "The Suction Cup Shuffle" has a blazing melodic lead; and jazzy "Tips from Toby the Turtle" is a groovy advice column. Other uber-cool, funky fun tunes include the witty "Flower in My Shower," "Robert Broccoli," done up as a goofy waltz, and "Twelve Steps to Eating Your Veggies," a tongue-in-cheek tune all kids can relate to. Super Cool!
Thank you to Midwest Record for this fabulous first review of our album THUMB WRESTLING CHAMPIONS coming soon on September 7th!
