Le Leche League-Live, Love, Latch Recap

The Rats had a blast as always playing at the annual Le Leche League's annual breastfeeding advocacy event "Live, Latch, Love!"  We can't wait for next year and hope to see you there! Le Leche League was founded in 1956 and is now present in 89 countries.  We're extra jazzed to be part of the team






Surf music is a genre of popular music associated with surf culture, particularly Redondo Beach and other areas of Southern California. It was particularly popular between 1961 and 1965, has subsequently been revived and was highly influential on subsequent rock music. It has two major forms: largely instrumental surf rock, with an electric guitar or saxophone playing the main melody, pioneered by acts such as Dick Dale and the Del-Tones, and vocal surf pop, including both surf ballads and dance music, often with strong harmonies that are most associated with The Beach Boys. The Royal Rats prefer the former.
