From the first time my kids saw one of the Laurie Berkner Band’s music videos on Nick Jr., they were hooked! The catchy tunes are so much fun for kids and adults alike. The Laurie Berkner Band songs became the soundtrack to my children’s early years.
I can’t even begin to tell you how many times we stomped our feet to the “BOOTS” song or how much my littles loved to squeal while I chased them around the house when “I’m Gonna Catch You” was playing.
So many children have grown up listening to The Laurie Berkner Band, and Laurie has found a way to stay connected to those fans! Fourteen of the most beloved Laurie Berkner Band songs have been given a modern makeover on the latest album, Laurie Berkner The Dance Remixes (released September 22, 2017.)
Laurie says, “I first thought of making an Electronic Dance Music album of my songs when I realized I was getting a lot of YouTube and Twitter followers who were teenagers. They had grown up on my music and were writing comments like ‘You were my whole childhood!’ or ‘I’ve always loved your songs and still do. I’m so glad I found you on here!’ So, I started to think about ways that I could connect more with those kids.
I had also noticed how popular EDM [Electronic Dance Music] was with toddlers and preschoolers, as well as their parents. EDM is so infectious, it almost dares you to TRY not dancing to it! Suddenly the idea of making EDM remixes of my classic songs emerged as the perfect way to combine new music for young kids and their parents with a nostalgic gift to teens who were still fans.”
Add Laurie Berkner The Dance Remixes to your children’s music library. The EDM style is a brand new take on The Laurie Berkner Band classic children’s songs. You’ll recognize these tunes, but they sound totally different in the remix version!
