Hello and welcome to our blog!
The Laurie Berkner Band is so excited to finally be part of the blog community, and we hope you will join us through our musical adventures.
2009 was a very exciting year for us - we've been working on some amazing projects that we will talk more about in future blogs!
Some Highlights From 2009:
- Laurie appeared on the Grammy-Nominated "Family Time" album by Ziggy Marley in the song "Future Man, Future Lady".
- The LBB played a FREE concert in Philadelphia to raise funds and awareness for CHOP's (Children's Hospital of Philadelphia) Healthy Kids Day 2009! The band played at the Mann Music Center in Philly. Laurie got to meet with some really special kids who will benefit from the event.
- Noggin (now Nick Jr.) aired "Let's Hear it for the Laurie Berkner Band" on July 12th. The hour-long special featured the Laurie Berkner Band's videos and released a new video, "My Family". We hope to be able to release this song for download very soon!
- Laurie and Susie played a special fundraiser for Housing Works bookstore. (Roll mouse over the link to read more about Housing Works!)
- Our Facebook Weekly Contests were a hit for our fans who have joined the LBB Facebook Fanpage - we gave 23 lucky winners an autgraphed CD of their choice, and over 150 runners-up autographed postcards!
- We started a relationship with Honest Tea, who will be giving out FREE tea and juice at some of our concerts!
- One of our biggest accomplishments of 2009 was the collection of 1,400 pairs of pajamas and over 950 books that were donated by our amazing fans to the Pajama Program. We will continue to collect new PJ's and books at our Pajama Party concerts this year!
Thanks so much for joining us! New posts every Tues-Friday!
