More Details

Critics widely acknowledge Laurie’s major contribution toward launching what is now dubbed the progressive “kindie rock” movement – i.e. less saccharine, more rocking music that is not dumbed down for children. Recognized as “the queen of kids’ music” by People magazine, Laurie is a singer, songwriter, performer, author, and founder of Two Tomatoes Records, LLC. She has released 15 bestselling, award-winning albums, was the first recording artist ever to perform in music videos on Nick Jr., appeared regularly on the network's Jack's Big Music Show, and helped develop the short form animated musical preschool series Sing It, Laurie! on Sprout TV. She displays an instinctive understanding of children’s natural rhythms and energy, which keeps kids enraptured and brings parents and caregivers happily along for the ride.

In her Halloween show, Laurie boogies on down in full Halloween mode with an assortment of songs for the fun and spooky season, including “Monster Boogie,” “Halloween Train,” “What Am I Gonna Be (for Halloween)?” and “The Cat Came Back,” as well as Laurie Berkner classics  like “Bumblebee (Buzz Buzz),” “The Goldfish (Let’s Go Swimming),” “We Are The Dinosaurs,” and “Rocketship Run,” along with newer hits like “Waiting for the Elevator,” “My Bunny Goes Hop,” and “Chipmunk at the Gas Pump,” plus – as a special treat for fans – a few well-loved Laurie Berkner songs that are not often heard at Laurie’s full-band concerts! Kids should plan to bring their dancing shoes and a stuffed animal (for their heads).
