"I'm so thrilled to be coming back to the beautiful Koka Booth Amphitheatre this summer!" says Laurie Berkner. "I can't wait to march like dinosaurs, swim like fish, and blast off together outside under the tall trees!"

A true pioneer in children's music, providing a soundtrack to childhood and memories that last a lifetime, Laurie Berkner will perform songs from a career spanning more than 25 years in the entertainment industry, including "Superhero," "Waiting for the Elevator," and "Chipmunk at the Gas Pump," along with such wellloved hits as "Bumblebee (Buzz Buzz)," "Victor Vito," "We Are The Dinosaurs," "Rocketship Run," "The Goldfish (Let's Go Swimming)," and "Pig On Her Head." As a special treat, Laurie will also sing some of her newest singles like "My Bunny Goes Hop" and "Onyx the Octopus." 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).
