It’s January, and that means it’s time to start afresh and get your body movin’ and groovin’! Who better to groove with than Koo Koo Kanga Roo! The dynamic dance party duo tours the West this month, encouraging everybody to get sweaty. As the News and Review says, “Once the duo steps into their show booties and onto the stage, they’re ready to get wacky—and to make people of all ages tune into their silly bone.”
Koo Koo Kanga Roo is also celebrating the release of a new single today, “My Jam.” The tune is getting play at Harlem Globetrotters games, and a new music video will be posting soon. The Globetrotters’ Hammer Harrison says, “We’re big fans of the work Koo Koo Kanga Roo does to help kids be active. We hope that when kids and families hear the song and watch the video they are inspired to get up and get moving.”
With two decades of making songs for kids and three GRAMMY nominations under his belt, Justin’s newest project is his baby son. The beautiful set of love songs from parent to child would be a thoughtful gift for new parents.
Joined by an eclectic group of instrumentalists including pianist Lisa Kaplan (Eighth Blackbird) baroque cellist Anna Steinhoff, percussionist Gerald Dowd (Robbie Fulks), and vocalist Nora O’Connor (Flat Five, the Decemberists), this tender and uplifting collection of songs is his most personal album yet.
