Well-known children's musician Laurie Berkner bursts onto the children's music video scene with the energy and enthusiasm of her concert stage appearances fully intact. The Laurie Berkner Band, comprised of Laurie Berkner on vocals and guitar, Brian Mueller on bass and vocals, and Susie Lampert on keyboard and vocals (joined sporadically by Bob Golden on drums and additional instruments), is an accomplished group of musicians who create and perform whimsical, catchy children's songs in a folksy rock style. From the playful rhymes that declare Tuesday "snooze day" in "I'm Gonna Catch You" to the absurd image of fish taking showers and brushing their teeth in "The Goldfish," Laurie Berkner's songs celebrate a child's love of the ridiculous. The uninhibited trio performs live onstage ("Under a Shady Tree") or within simply animated scenes ("Bumblebee--Buzz, Buzz, Buzz") and the songs are undisputedly catchy--so catchy that many parents sheepishly admit to humming or even singing Laurie Berkner's songs full voice even when their children aren't around. In these days of splashy animation and over-thought, overly-glitzy children's music videos, it's a real treat to enjoy a simple production that features songs that kids love performed by musicians who appear to be having just as much fun as their young audiences. (Ages 1 to 8) --Tami Horiuchi

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
My son watches Noggin quite a bit, and we were thus introduced to the music of the Laurie Berkner Band through their "music videos" on that network. The songs are cute and catchy and generally not as annoying as most children's music, but lately our favorite song videos--for songs like "Pig On Her Head" or "Victor Vito"--have been airing less and less frequently. So I was really excited to see this collection advertised on TV. It not only has our favorites (other songs include "Buzz Buzz Buzz," "We Are the Dinosaurs," and "Under A Shady Tree") but a few songs we didn't know yet and a bonus audio CD to take along in the car. One song, "I'm Gonna Get You" goes over the days of the week, and I think it will be a fun way to teach the days to my son, so I'm looking forward to getting to know it better.

The settings for the videos are simple and colorful, the band's scenes are mixed with kids singing along, just as on the Noggin videos, and the band members themselves are fun, seem friendly, and wear really colorful clothes that are sure to catch kids' attention. It should be noted that the videos on this DVD are NOT the same as those on Noggin; they've been redone with slightly more elaborate sets and with a different group of children.

The quality of the songs, videos, and performances are all top-notch. My only real complaint is that one song is sung by the backup singer Brian, who is apparently much better at harmonizing than at singing a melody. His "Oh Susannah" is off-key and not nearly as enjoyable as the other videos.

The DVD has 10 songs as well as bonus behind-the-scenes videos. As mentioned it comes with a bonus audio CD as well.

I bought this CD/DVD combo after reading the reviews here. I was mistaken in thinking the DVD would show the same videos that are shown on Noggin. They are not the same.
This DVD shows the band playing in front of a cheap, tossed together prop set. Some songs are a bit more visually pleasing with a few kids tossed in or some costumes.

*I am updating this review after having the DVD for a couple of months. Apparently my son's initial dislike of the CD has worn off. At age 2.5 he is completely captivated by the DVD. He knows all the words to "Moon, Moon, Moon" & asks for me to sing it to him each night before bed.
I would update my review to 5 stars, but I am unable to change it.
Moral is....if you child doesn't initially like it, try again a month later. My son now loves this DVD

About all I can say is this...when my first son was young, he watched a Raffi video over and over and over...it felt like nails on a chalkboard. Thankfully my younger son who is now three has laurie Berkner to listen to with songs that are far more catchy and fun for children to listen to. All of her favorites are on the DVD including We are the Dinosaurs, Victor Vito, and Pig on her Head. My son just loves marching to We are the Dinosaurs. Her band are all solid musicians who seem to really love what they do. I'm glad my son knows how to work the DVD player himself because it's one he's going to be watching a lot. Great DVD and great value too!

My daughter Brooklynn, age 3, received this DVD from her aunt who saw the Laurie Berkner Band performing on a morning show. We had never heard of the band before, but really enjoyed the DVD. The first time I played it, Brooklynn was up and dancing around; by the second time, she was singing along to some of the songs (Especially "We are the Dinosaurs") It is now her favorite DVD to watch and asks for it all the time. The songs are very catchy and cute, but not annoying. It is great entertainment for anyone looking for an fun music collection.

We just love this DVD! The music is great and my daughter can't get enough of it. It is nice to see her dancing and singing instead of sitting there just "watching" television. I was even up dancing with her for most of the songs.......great exercise for us parents too!! Can't wait for another......we will definitely purchase if they come out with any more.

I had never heard of the Laurie Berkner Band until I saw a commerical for this DVD on Nickelodean channel. They had me and my daughter at "Susie has a cow on her head". My daughter would come running everytime from different rooms to see the cartoon cow on Susie's head. Heck--so would I.

So for my daughter's 4th birthday she received this awesome DVD from her grandparents. I have been so very happy with the product. I especially love "Pig on her Head",
"Telephone", "Walk Along the River", "I Know a Chicken", and the lollybye (as misprounced by my daughter) "Moon, Moon, Moon".

Along with Laurie is Brian Mueller and Susie Lampert. They are excellent entertainers. They are all so vital dancing around and are uninhibited and seem so spontaneous. And I love how they use children in this DVD to sing and dance with them.

I wish I could be a mom who could whip out a guitar and sing sweet songs to my child. At least Laurie's voice which is homey and warm is in a range where I can sound pretty good myself. The harmony between the threesome is beautiful.
