Kingdom Classics ~ Disney Songs with a Rock ‘n Roll Twist

Growing up in the state of Florida makes it difficult to not notice the impact that Welt Disney World made and continues to make in so many ways. I first visited the Magic Kingdom in 1973 when my grandparents took our family down to the magical new “theme park”. We stayed at the Polynesian Resort (right on Disney property…WOW! Pretty cool for a 9 year old boy!

I visited the park many times over the years and finally landed a job there in 1989.  I worked at what had been my favorite attraction growing up…The Jungle Cruise! Along the way I also worked at Davy Crockett’s Canoes, Pirates of the Caribbean, and The Haunted Mansion!  Disney MGM Studios was set to open up May 1, 1989 and I auditioned to be part of the opening crew. While there, I worked on the backlot tour as a guide on both the tram tour and the special effects area. I even had a brief stint as “The Rocketeer” when props from the film were being displayed there. I also had cameo role in an episode of The Mickey Mouse Club on television.

I left the theme parks as my musical career began to expand. I have found a niche in the world of 50’s & 60’s style of music as well as working as Elvis Presley in the show “Legends in Concert”.

Lately, I have found myself wondering what some of the Disney classic songs I loved as a child, as well as some of the newer songs, might sound like in a more retro rock & roll sound. The Kingdom Classics album is the result of that journey. I hope you enjoy these classic songs and some fo the more obscure ones as well. I believe we have kept the original integrity of the songs while transporting you back to the Golden Age of Rock & Roll. ENJOY!!

Peter Alden Featured on an Episode of The Mickey Mouse Club

Many remember the Disney Channel’s wildly popular The All-New Mickey Mouse Club which aired in the late ‘80s well into the ‘90s. It was similar to a “‘Saturday Night Live’ for kids” featuring interviews, skits, variety show-styled razzle dazzle, and of course, lots of singing.

Long before his album of Disney hits with a Rock ‘n Roll Twist Kingdom Classics was produced, Peter Alden did some singing on one MMC episode in particular – and we’ve got the video for you!  Other actors in this episode also went on to have pretty bright futures.  Watch for JC Chasez from NSYNC, Keri Russell from the TV Series “Felicity” recording artist Jennifer McGill and more.

Check out this episode of the show where you’ll find Pete singing beautifully as an “Elvis Impersonator.” Just fast forward to 4:43-6:00 to save time.

More about the show:

The Mickey Mouse Club’s Emerald Cove was a 1993-1995 American soap-opera based television series on the Disney Channel in a genre called ‘dramedy’, a mix of drama and comedy and a serial from the fifth, sixth and seventh seasons of The Mickey Mouse Club (MMC). It was produced by Blue Wave Productions, Inc. in association with Les Choux Company.

Emerald Cove was an updated version of the classic 60’s beach movies. It  centered around a group of surfers, musicians, and party lovers. Many of the episodes involved the band called “High Density” trying to get a job playing at Emerald Cove, a fictional local club that was filmed and located in Cocoa Beach, Florida.

Other continuing themes are the problems that the teenagers encounter while trying to sort out their love lives over the summer, and deciding about college.
