About

Music the Whole Family Will Love

Slugs & Bugs rejects the compartmentalization of life into sacred and secular and declares with great gusto that Christ is the head of all things. He is the head of kite flying and river floating, ice fishing and sky diving, nap taking, bike riding, belly laughing and taking out the trash.

Our small hope is that the joyful creativity of Slugs & Bugs music will delight your whole family. Our grand hope is that Slugs & Bugs kids would find it natural to remember Jesus in their homework, in their friendships, and one day, in the parenting of our grandchildren.

We believe songs are one of God’s powerful tools for building strong relationships. When songs inspire laughter or deep spiritual thought, they can transform a routine car ride into a sweet family experience. Over time, that influence can profoundly impact the culture of the home.

Slugs & Bugs aims to write those songs. We want families to sing together, laugh together, and think deeply together about the meaning of life and the nature of God. We believe those shared experiences will translate into stronger relationships in the family and a deeper understanding of their relationship with Jesus.

That’s where we’re aiming, but making music the whole family can agree on is a great place to start!

For a statement of faith, check out The Apostles’ Creed. This is what we believe.

 

Praise for Sing the Bible

Randall Goodgame, one of the best lyricists out there, has done something astonishing—he’s made a catchy, heartfelt, beautiful record that feels entirely original, and yet he’s using ancient words composed by the best writer there ever was. I can’t think of another collection of songs this joyful that has also made me cry in the car. Just like Narnia, "Sing the Bible" is at least as much for the grownups as it is for the kids. Andrew Peterson, Acclaimed Singer-Songwriter and award winning author of The WIngfeather Saga
Slugs & Bugs Sing the Bible is the perfect CD for our whole family because it is all about God’s Word, but it is also hilarious! I love the quality of the music, the Scripture for all of us to learn and sing together, and the humor that Slugs & Bugs always bring to their projects! This is a favorite road trip sing-along CD with our family! Erin Mohring, co-founder, The MOB Society
Sing the Bible with Slugs & Bugs is music for kids that takes kids seriously--great songs, infectious rhythms, stellar arrangements. I’m glad I don’t have to be a kid to love Slugs & Bugs! Kids will love this music, and parents will love that their kids love it. Clay Clarkson, Whole Heart Ministries
Slugs & Bugs has done it again! This music will make you tap your feet, but even more, it will engage your heart. Don¹t miss the chance to enjoy this CD and have some fun with your family. Bob Goff - author of Love Does, president and founder of Restore International
Our family has enjoyed Slugs & Bugs for years! Always witty, always poignant, always full of fun surprise. You want these songs to echo in your heart and head. Sara Groves, Singer/Songwriter, and Art House America
Slugs & Bugs is good stuff! Phil Visher, creator of VeggieTales and What’s In the Bible?
Slugs & Bugs has single-handedly taken kid’s music to the next level. The music and songs are engaging and enchanting for all ages, and hold our most sacred truths within the bars and rhymes. "Sing the Bible" honors the worth of the gospel while making it approachable, memorable and timeless. In my ministry I have used every piece of Slugs & Bugs music I can find... because it is simply the best thing available for kids. Robyn Collins, Songwriter and Children’s Minister at Long Hollow Baptist
The latest Slugs & Bugs release, Sing the Bible, brings a world music feel à la Paul Simon’s Graceland. With some of Nashville’s finest session players and the African Children’s Choir joining Goodgame’s signature silly-yet-earnest tunes, the result is another win for meaningful children’s music. Matt Conner, CCM Magazine

Praise for Slugs & Bugs LIVE!

Slugs & Bugs put a hundred smiles on the hearts of the kids in the audience. And their parents (and even older siblings) loved the concert, too. Randall Goodgame engaged the kids in such a fun and respectful way. God’s love was all over this concert. It was just awesome to see. I can’t recommend Randall Goodgame and Slugs & Bugs enough. If you know children who love music and need to be encouraged in the Lord (i.e. all children), then book a show. Randall will bless them. And you’ll be glad. Dave Bruno, Point Loma Nazerene University, San Diego, CA
Thanks Randy for putting on a great show for all the local Slugs & Bugs groupies at Northbrook. Our family has enjoyed the Slugs & Bugs music for years now, and it was a blessing to bring Randy to town so we could share Jesus exalting, fun filled, artistically gifted music with others! No doubt the fan base has grown, and we look forward to another show in the future. The kids are only little ones for so long...sigh. Jason Kautz, Northbrook Baptist Church, Cedar Rapids, Iowa
Randall Goodgame rocks the house! We had a great time with Slugs & Bugs, and we’re getting pumped about bringing him up to Brockton again soon. The folks who attended the concert loved the music, laughed aloud, sang along and came away a little bit more impressed with Jesus. God bless Randall Goodgame! Steve Rahn, Pastor of Grace Church, Boston, MA
Dear Randall, Thanks for coming to Greentree Community Church! We feel so blessed! I knew you were a hit when you had third grade boys spinning like tops to the music and little girls spontaneously gathering in a circle to dance and skip. The lyrics are clever and funny and filled with truths about God, and our 3 year old granddaughter, in one short week has memorized the songs. You rock! Ellen Stream, Greentree Community Church, Kirkwood, MO
This was a wonderful concert. Delightful, light-hearted but rich, musically excellent. My kiddos and their parents really enjoyed it! Anyone who has a chance needs to hear Randall Goodgame in person. And get the CDs for your kids to memorize! Great fun! Char Sellers, Colorado Springs, CO
We had Randall perform Slugs & Bugs at Creation Northeast - and we just fell in love with him. He is so engaging and friendly. He makes a wonderful connection with the kids and families without being cheesy. And those songs are so catchy and singable. We loved that he was part of the Kids Stage at Creation and look forward to him joining us again. Fred McNaughton, Creation Festival, Manheim, PA
I would like to personally thank Randall for his vision and for using his gifts to share Jesus with kids and families everywhere. I would also highly recommend that you invite him to bring A Slugs & Bugs show to your congregation…you won’t be disappointed! Dedra Lewis, Director of Children, First Baptist Church, Vincennes, IN
