We are . . . The Laurie Berkner Band
Top Customer Reviews
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.Read more ›
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
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.
