Bio

he Teddy Bear Band inspires movement, imagination and fun for children, families, and your bear. The band acknowledges to the audience, “You’re in the Show”! Soon the audience finds itself in the midst of a musical journey, engaged on imaginary rides, playing games, performing “Bear-Robics” & engaging interaction.
* The SMITHSONIAN is currently considering TBB's
contribution to the evolution of children's music.
*The ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME will be
considering TBB for induction in 2010 for being the
first music artist to utilize contemporary music into
children's music.
Unlike many children's performers, the Teddy 8ear Band performs in uniform but does not as "characters in costume". The band's success has proven that children feel good about TBB’s sincere enjoyment in performing as themselves that also reduces barriers in getting parents involved in the show with their kids. Teddy Bear Band’s main goal is to help children to feel good about themselves, for being themselves, as they become part of the show!
OPTIONS
1. The Teddy Bear Band performs as a 2,3, 4 or 5-6 piece band. Instrumentalists play guitar, bass guitar, keyboard/synthesizer, drums, saxophone, etc., with
performances normally up to 45 minutes.
3. We also offer PANDA, a person who appears in a Panda suit, who helps with the show, gives bear hugs, etc.
4. The “target audience” is usually preschool - Age 10
WHAT DO THE EXPERTS SAY?
David Walsh Ph.D.(Executive Director of The National Institute on Family and the Media)
“As I have watched the Teddy Bear Band perform over the years, I have always been struck by the group’s ability to engage children.”

Martha Farrell Erickson, Ph.D (Children, Youth, and Family Consortium)
”Unlike overt "message songs" that are so prevalent right now in the children's music field, Teddy Bear Band's message is between the lines. The band lets every child know they're appreciated for who they are, and encourages them to participate in positive ways.”

MINNESOTA PARENT MAGAZINE
"The best thing about these Teddy Bear guys is that they're real, both figuratively and literally. They're one of those all-too-rare breeds of live performers for little ones; not on a screen, not coming out of a speaker, but right there with kids interacting and responding to each other. The Teddy Bear Band is also spiritually alive - a real lift for both parents and kids." "No contest. These folks are the consummate kids entertainers"

Lois Engstrom (MN Dept of Children, Families, & Learning)
“We are fortunate to have these great ambassadors (TBB) for Minnesota ECFE.” (Early Childhood Family Education)

* Teddy Bear Band! BEST CHILDREN’S MUSIC ARTIST for young children & family events!
* Consistently recognized as “ BEST CHILDREN’S MUSIC ARTIST” without exception!
TBB is the only children’s artist ever honored with MN. PARENT MAGAZINE’S FAMILY FAVORITES AWARD since 1988, (chosen by parents, children, and the general public). The same is true since 1988 with the MINNESOTA MUSIC AWARD from the MINNESOTA MUSIC ACADEMY, (musicians & music industry professionals).
* In honor of Teddy Bear Band's 20th Anniversary and TBB's support of education and families, Governor Tim Pawlenty proclaimed Sept. 10 as TEDDY BEAR BAND DAY throughout the State of Minnesota!
