Nicole Richie! Dave Grohl! Stars Love the Fresh Beat Band

12/02/2013 at 05:00 PM ET

Besides being celebrities, what do Nicole Richie, Dave Grohl and Kenny ‘Babyface’ Edmonds all have common? They and their kids are big fans of Nickelodeon‘s The Fresh Beat Band.

And it’s easy to see why. The group, which consists of Kiki (Yvette Gonzalez-Nacer), Marina (Tara Perry), Twist (Jon Beavers) and Shout (Thomas Hobson), is known for both their upbeat tunes and colorful attire.

It’s obvious they love what they do, but all four members agree it’s always a thrill to learn they have a famous admirer. “The coolest thing that ever happened to me was when Dave Grohl introduced himself to me,” Beavers tells PEOPLE.

Hobson shares a similar story. “I met Laurence Fishburne in a spa of all places. He has a daughter who watches the show,” he says. “We had a very nice conversation.”

Perry says her favorite place that the group was recognized was at Harry Potter World at Universal Orlando. “We were taking a picture with the conductor of Nine and Three-Quarters and afterwards he said with a smile, ‘Have a great day… a very great day,” a reference to the song the band sings at the end of each show.

But despite all their A-List followers, the band — who is currently touring the country — says their favorite thing is meeting their youngest fans. “Watching the kids and the parents and hearing their stories is definitely the best part,” says Hobson.

Mom Said It

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
