Holiday Celebration Concerts Set For Winter 2013

“Laurie Berkner rocks Santa’s socks off.” – Parents Magazine

“Laurie Berkner is bigger than Justin Bieber, if you happen to be four or five.”
– The New York Times

Children’s music superstars and preschool television favorites The Laurie Berkner Band will perform in a series of Holiday Celebration concerts along the East Coast in November and December.  The concerts will include music from the critically acclaimed 2012 album, A Laurie Berkner Christmas (Two Tomatoes Records/Razor & Tie).  According to the Associated Press, “If you have kids under the age of five in your house, this is probably the only Christmas album you need this year.”

The band will perform tracks such as Jingle Bells, Laurie’s original song Candy Cane Jane, and the Hanukkah song Candle Chase (Laurie’s version is available on iTunes) among many more festive seasonal favorites.

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. 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.”  The Wall Street Journal called Laurie “one of the most popular children’s performers in America … Her music is distinctive because it speaks to kids without talking down to them, charming youngsters without boring grown-ups.”

The Laurie Berkner Band features: Laurie Berkner, vocals/guitar; Susie Lampert, keyboards; Brady Rymer, bass; and Bobby Golden, drums/percussion.
