“I am SO happy to be coming back to Southern California!” says Laurie Berkner. “I can’t wait to march like a dinosaur, swim like a fish, hop like a bunny, and of course, sing and dance with the kids and families there! And I’m really thrilled to have been able to partner with such a fantastic new company like tonies, who is creating thoughtful, engaging, and high-quality toys for kids.”

 

A true pioneer in children’s music, providing a soundtrack to childhood and memories that last a lifetime, Laurie Berkner celebrates the 25th anniversary of the release of her second album, Buzz Buzz, throughout 2023. At her Anaheim show, Laurie will perform songs from Buzz Buzz like “Bumblebee (Buzz Buzz)” and “Pig On Her Head,” along with such well-loved hits as “Victor Vito,” “We Are The Dinosaurs,” “Rocketship Run,” and “The Goldfish (Let’s Go Swimming),” and more recent fan favorite like “Superhero,” Waiting for the Elevator,” and “Chipmunk at the Gas Pump.” As a special treat, Laurie will also sing some of her newest singles from 2023 like “My Bunny Goes Hop,” and “Wash It.” Laurie’s concerts showcase an array of tunes that encourage kids and grownups alike to get up and dance. Kids should plan to bring their dancing shoes and a stuffed animal (for their heads).
