Laurie's Got a Pig On Her Head!

Noggin-TV famed singer & bestselling children's recording artist Laurie Berkner and her band performed two sold out shows today at The Opera House in Boston. Children were wearing silly hats and animals on their heads the entire hour-long show --- Whaddaya Think of That? Following both performances, The Laurie Berkner Band did 15-20 minute encores, including the song I Really Love to Dance, which got most of the audience under age 10 up and on their feet in the aisles. The band took the stage and jumped right into the best-selling repertoire with a fun rendition of Victor Vito. Next, they performed Bumble Bee, a song from one of their platinum albums Buzz, Buzz. (CD & DVDs are available at the band's Web site at :

Berkner, who said she hasn't been in Boston performing since she gave birth to her daughter Lucy, 2.5 years ago, was energetic and engaging with the family-friendly audience. The hip mama, dressed in stylish duds, stomped like a dinosaur, pretended to sleep on the stage, and sang all of her favorite songs, including those featured on Noggin-TV show Jack's Big Music, which is now in its second season. The popular series is releasing its first CD of music Tuesday, April 10. It is available at Amazon ( Laurie sang I'm Gonna Catch You and I'm Not Perfect from the TV series.

More than 5, 000 people attended the two shows on Saturday from several New England states. One woman waiting for the doors to open with us, came down from Kennebunkport, Maine.
