Best-selling children’s recording artist and preschool television favorite Laurie Berkner is coming to the Capital District and making her Troy, NY debut! Laurie will bring her Greatest Hits Solo Tour to the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall, 30 Second Street, Troy with a family show at 11:00 a.m. onSaturday, November 12.
Laurie Berkner’s all-ages concert will feature such popular hits as “Bumblebee (Buzz Buzz),” “Victor Vito,” “We Are The Dinosaurs,” and “Pig on Her Head.” Kids should plan to bring their dancing shoes and a stuffed animal (for their heads).
At her solo shows, in addition to familiar hits, Laurie Berkner performs songs that don’t always fit with a full-band performance: tunes with simpler arrangements, hand motions, and a cappella singing, like “Bottle Caps,” “One Seed,” “Telephone,” and “Drive My Car.”
To give everyone a chance to catch their breath between high-energy moments, the show will include quieter interludes, with songs such as Laurie’s classic “Moon Moon Moon.”
As a special treat, Laurie Berkner’s Troy show will be one of the first concerts at which Laurie performs songs from her new album, Superhero. Superhero is Laurie’s first full album since 2008 to be comprised entirely of all-new songs. This is the album Laurie’s fans have been waiting for!
Dubbed “one of children’s music’s biggest success stories” by USA Today, Laurie Berkner’soriginal songs, albums, DVDs, music videos, and books leave no doubt: Laurie is the uncrowned queen of children’s music and the power behind the progressive “kindie rock” movement.
