Laurie Berkner Band rocks Monster Boogie Halloween concert

Ghouls, gobblins, and ghosts are invited to sing along with the Laurie Berkner band at the Monster Boogie concert at New York Society for Ethical Culture on Oct. 20.

The Monster Boogie concert — a Halloween tradition for families — is back, starring kids’ music superstars Laurie Berkner and The Laurie Berkner Band. The band is in full Halloween mode playing an assortment of songs for the spooky season, including “Monster Boogie” and “The Cat Came Back,” along with such well-loved Laurie Berkner hits as “Bumblebee (Buzz Buzz),” “Victor Vito,” “We Are The Dinosaurs,” and “Pig on Her Head.” A local group of young dancers will perform choreography to Laurie’s dance remix version of “The Cat Came Back.” Kids and grownups are encouraged to come in costume, bring their dancing shoes, a stuffed animal (for their heads!), and be ready to get up and dance to all their favorites.

The Monster Boogie Halloween concert, Oct. 20 at 3 pm. $39, plus applicable fees. Infants under 1 and sitting on lap, free. VIP tickets $100, plus applicable fees. VIP tickets include after-show meet and greet, photo opportunity, and a personalized, autographed picture of the Laurie Berkner Band.
