Children’s music superstar Laurie Berkner will perform in Poughkeepsie on Saturday, June 23 at 11:00am at the Bardavon Opera House. Dubbed “the queen of children’s music” by People Magazine, Laurie Berkner has won over legions of little fans with smart songwriting and infectious melodies. Laurie Berkner will perform old favorites as well as songs from their newest DVD, Party Day!. Kids can bring a favorite stuffed animal (those in the know will put them on their heads for Pig On Her Head) and wear their party clothes and dancing shoes. Party Day! (Two Tomatoes Records/Razor & Tie) entered the Billboard Top Music Videos chart at #1 when it debuted last summer. Laurie recently authored Barnes & Noble’s first-ever original NOOK Kids™ Read and Play™ NOOK Kids™ book, based on the joyous title track from Party Day! 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. Laurie was the first artist to ever appear in music videos on Nick Jr., Nickelodeon’s commercial-free preschool network. Her award-winning, best-selling CDs and DVDs have received rave reviews in national media outlets everywhere from Parents Magazine to Time Magazine. http://www.laurieberkner.com
