Welcome to the Music Thursdays segment! Each week here on Geek Alabama, Music Thursdays will feature music related content. Music Thursdays will feature an artist or band and their latest song and / or music video. People love music, and we here at Geek Alabama love featuring artists and bands!
What the world needs now is love, sweet love! Iconic children’s musician Laurie Berkner invites everyone to celebrate the sweetest day of the year at two special “Valentine’s Day” LIVE Virtual Family Concerts on Sunday, February 13 at 12:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Laurie’s concert website: HERE. For double the fun, a family ticket grants admission to one or both livestreams.
“I can’t wait to perform my first Virtual Family Concerts of 2022!” says Laurie Berkner. “I’m so happy to be able to continue sharing my livestreams and have the chance to celebrate love and family on Valentine’s Day with everyone who watches.”
Laurie encourages fans of all ages to decorate their homes for Valentine’s Day and to wear something fun and valentine-y to the show – shades of pink and red are the order of the day, and love-hearts are the shape of the hour!
“There are so many things kids and families can do to get ready,” says Laurie Berkner. “They can cut out and decorate hearts to share onscreen and choose an instrument like a tambourine or a shaky egg so they can play along with the music. Everyone should be sure to pick out a stuffed animal to use during the show, and of course, having some special Valentine’s Day snacks on hand would be a great idea, too!”
Laurie Berkner’s Valentine’s Day shows will feature songs of love, family, and friendship, like “A Hug From My Mama,” “I Love You Daddy,” “My Family,” “Blow A Kiss,” and “There’s A Little Wheel A-Turnin’ In My Heart,” along with an array of Laurie’s greatest hits, including “We Are The Dinosaurs,” “Victor Vito,” “Pig On Her Head,” “Rocketship Run,” “The Goldfish (Let’s Go Swimming),” “Bumblebee (Buzz Buzz), and more. Laurie hopes everyone will join in the Valentine’s Day spirit and sing and dance along.
The Laurie Berkner Band’s drummer, Bobby Golden, will be a special guest at this show.
Laurie Berkner’s virtual family concerts are full-length, visually-enriched, interactive experiences, so kids might see images of a rocketship blasting off during “Rocketship Run” or a little wheel turning during “There’s A Little Wheel A-Turnin’ In My Heart.” Kids and grownups alike are encouraged to share their thoughts and ideas with Laurie in a live chat throughout the show.
A fun-filled virtual lobby will feature pre-show music and videos, Valentine’s Day games, and a fun heart-decorating craft activity to bring to the concert. For those who’d like to spend a few minutes chatting one-on-one in a video call with Laurie after the show, special Meet-and-Greet tickets are available.
