While we are bummed that the summer came and went, there’s a lot of exciting things going on this fall, including tons of Halloween-related events like Laurie Berkner’s Monster Boogie Halloween Concert.
Held on Saturday, October 20 at The Concert Hall at the New York Society for Ethical Culture, Laurie Berkner and The Laurie Berkner Band will play an assortment of songs for the Halloween season at this show, including “Monster Boogie” and “The Cat Came Back,” along with such well-loved Laurie Berkner hits as “Bumblebee (Buzz Buzz),” “Victor Vito,” “We Are The Dinosaurs,” and “Pig on Her Head.” A local group of young dancers will perform choreography to Laurie’s dance remix version of “The Cat Came Back.” Laurie and the band plan to wear their Halloween costumes.
Kids and grownups alike are also encouraged to come in costume, bring their dancing shoes and a stuffed animal (for their heads!), and be ready to get up and dance to all their favorites. The concert is also sure to be interactive where her songs will get kids on their feet to sing, clap, and dance along. She keeps even the youngest audience members fully engaged with dynamic expressions of musical joy in active songs like “I’m Gonna Catch You” and “Rocketship Run,” and gives everyone a chance to catch their breath between high-energy moments by including quieter interludes featuring songs such as Laurie’s classic “Moon Moon Moon.” Laurie displays an instinctive understanding of children’s natural rhythms and energy in her shows, which keeps kids enraptured and brings parents happily along for the ride.
Making the tradition extra special this year is Simon & Schuster’s recent publication of Laurie’s Monster Boogie picture book, featuring playful illustrations by Ben Clanton.
