The Deedle Deedle Dees Family Variety Show: Underwater Halloween!

Underwater New York was so excited to be collaborating with children’s rock group The Deedle Deedle Dees to present this show! The Deedle Deedle Dees and UNY contributor Michael Hearst (One Ring Zero, Songs for Ice Cream Trucks) performed and the little ones wiggled all over the dance floor with an underwater disco dance party by UNY’s own DJ Dan Selzer.

It wasn't just the little guppies who enjoyed the show–The Deedle Deedle Dees write smart children’s songs about topics ranging from history (Sojourner Truth) to literature (Zora) to NYC traffic patterns (Major Deegan) that grown-ups can appreciate, too. Here's the amazing song about Dead Horse Bay they wrote for UNY:

 

The Deedle Deedle Dees book club also featured works by UNY contributor Matthea Harvey. Check out the kids’ pick The Little General and the Giant Snowflake and adult pick Modern Life.
