Have you heard of The Laurie Berkner Band? I was first introduced to her and her music about a year ago. I saw a friend from college post a video of her toddler daughter dancing to a silly kid song on Facebook. The song immediately stuck in my head and I got the DVD for Lennox at the library. She kind of liked dancing around to it, but I think she was too young still, and honestly, wasn’t very into music. I could see from everyone elses reaction to Laurie Berkner that she was big in the children’s music world, and her songs were fun!
A former preschool music teacher by day and indie rocker by night, Laurie Berkner started selling her music over ten years ago out of her living room on her own label, Two Tomatoes Records. The Laurie Berkner Band has received tremendous critical acclaim. Time Magazine lauded Laurie as “a kind of sippy-cup Sheryl Crow…Berkner inhabits a kid’s curious perspective in her lyrics and pens folk-pop melodies that bear repeated – very repeated – listenings.”
Ever since we heard of Laurie Berkner, I have had my eye out for any Laurie Berkner performances for Lennox to go to, so when I saw they were coming to Dallas this spring (actually, the same friend on Facebook told me about it), I jumped on the chance to go! We will be bringing her on March 23rd to the Dallas Show. Here are the show details:
