Pizza Time’s last album, “Todo”, is called garage-pop. Recorded at Denver’s Rhinoceropolis (a former warehouse-turned-venue), the album combines raw guitars, playful drum machines, and sweet lyrical lines from singer Adolf Castillo. This album features a large selection of Spanish languages. While it’s possible to listen to all of the band’s tracks without the lyrics, you can expect to hear some pop fusion, including songs in Spanish.
As an extra bonus, the band also has an online video project called Panaderia, which is similar to Pizza Time but has a different sound. The songs, which are released online as “episodes,” follow the adventures of the characters, who are cartoon pastries who love to sing and make music. The music videos are part of a multimedia project, and they feature Spanish-speaking animated characters. The songs are accompanied with animated shorts of five minutes about a Colorado pizza shop.
Pizza Time had become notorious for their flamboyant partying, and the artist in question was ready to burn the pizza shop to the ground. Despite their infamously raucous shows, the artist was eager to continue their career. The band had an album on the way, a tour coming up, and a slot at the Burgerama music festival. Despite their uninspiring appearance, the band’s fans were willing and able to tolerate the stoned slackers who were bringing the band’s music to the masses.
The Pizza Time Players were the official stage band at Chuck E. Cheese’s Pizza Time Theatre restaurants. The band performed in 1977. The group included Chuck E. Cheese and Pasqually as well as the Warblettes. They were replaced by the Mopsey Sisters in 1978. The band continued to play after the company’s merger with ShowBiz Pizza Place. Helen Henny, although the band no longer has a music director, is still a permanent member.
ShowBiz Pizza also used animatronic characters in its movies. In 1984, the ShowBiz Pizza Time theatre was merged with the chain to settle the mandate. The new chain was rebranded as Chuck E. Cheese’s. A new generation of fun! If you’ve ever been to a Chuck E. Cheese’s, you’ll have to experience it to understand the fun and magic of the franchise.
