If you’ve been following Jersey Family Fun for awhile, you’ll know we are big time fans of Laurie Berkner and the Laurie Berkner Band. Back in October, we told you about Laurie’s Kickstarter campaign to fund her much anticipated, first-ever lullaby album. Well, Guess What? 846 Backers stepped up to the plate to successfully fund the campaign!
Laurie Berkner Lullabies will be released April 8th.
If that wasn’t enough excitement for Laurie Berkner fans, the band will also perform a Live Lullaby Album Release Concert, right here in New Jersey on April 5th at 1:30 pm at the Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown, New Jersey. You’ll hear all of your favorite Laurie Berkner tunes, plus songs from the new album, “Laurie Berkner Lullabies”.
Before I had kids, I never imagined going to a concert for children’s music. Now, I have to say that a Laurie Berkner Band concert is a must-see! Whether you’re a long time fan who can sing along to every song, or a newbie, you and your kids will be dancing in your seats, in the aisles, and singing along all day and for months (maybe even years) to come.
A Google Hangout With Laurie Berkner
To kick off our coverage of the Laurie Berkner Lullabies album’s release, we’ll be sitting down with Laurie Berkner in a Google Hangout that we’ll record for our You Tube channel. We’ll chat about the success of her Kickstarter campaign, the process of making an album, and find out why she’s so excited to be bringing Laurie Berkner Lullabies to you and her fans. We have so many questions, but we want to hear from you too.
What do you want to know about Laurie Berkner? Are your kids budding musicians with a burning question for Laurie? Would you like to help us interview Laurie Berkner?
Help us interview Laurie Berkner by creating a short video of your kids asking their question. Videos should be no longer than 30 seconds in length. Please have your child identify themselves by a name or nickname so Laurie Berkner can respond using their name. Submit your video via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by this Friday, February 14th. We will choose a few of our favorite video questions and show them to Laurie during our Google Hangout.
Then check back at the end of the month, to watch our interview and Laurie Berkner’s responses on our You Tube Channel, and enter for your chance to win tickets to the Laurie Berkner Lullabies album release concert.
