DAD TALK'S REVIEW OF "REVVED UP & READY TO ROCK!"


"The concert includes puppets, silly outfits, happy horn players and a lot of energy.  While watching, we had both kids dancing on the floor of our playroom.   
Seriously, the music is a lot of fun.  So, if you're still trying to figure out what to get your kids for the holidays.."

We're thrilled to hear kids are rocking out!

Cookie Magazine's Top Ten Best Kids' Music 2008 - Fast & Feisty by Princess Katie & Racer Steve




"A lot about Katie & Steve seems incongruous.  They dress in theme-parkish costumes, and their songs carry a vague air of '60s mod-ness, but when it comes down to it, 
they just make great kids music."

Thanks for loving Fast & Feisty!

We'll also be performing at Cookie Magazine's Kidsfest in Beaver Creek, Colorado on Saturday, March 14th @ 6:30 pm.

Happy Holidays From Princess Katie & Racer Steve!

Let's be totally honest here:  kids are, by far, the best thing roaming this planet (everyone is entitled to their own opinion, right?)  Their positivity and desire to seek out happiness comes naturally to them and it's incredible to be around them and bask in their sparkly glow.   

That said, we hope you enjoy every second of seeing your children happy as they run around holiday parties, open presents and soak up every compliment from family and friends telling them undeniably adorable they are.  

So enjoy whatever you celebrate and let's wish for a much-needed peaceful 2009.

Thank you for playing our music and videos in your home/car...over and over and over and over...

Covering the castle with lights, we remain,

Princess Katie & Racer Steve's "Kiddie Rockers Unite" CD/DVD Drive A Huge Success

This evening Racer Steve and I, along with Crash and Space performed for the ultra cute kids at the Ronald McDonald House here in NYC.  The Ronald McDonald House is an incredible place, offering families a way to stay together in a comfortable environment while their children get treatment for serious illnesses.
A few months ago I had asked kiddie musicians and people within the industry if they would like to donate some CDs/DVDs for me to give out at my hospital performances and at this event at The Ronald McDonald House.  Well, they did give and very, very generously if I might add.  
It's hard to explain what it feels like when you're performing for children who are dealing with life-threatening illnesses.  Their energy is low, their faces pained.  Now imagine having the incredible power to light up those little, beautiful faces by offering the music of these artists.  I was able to do this tonight because of the generosity of these kiddie rockers and industry insiders.  
After our performance, we were invited up to the dining room where I announced to all the kids and their parents how these musicians would have loved to perform for them, but figured the next best thing would be to give their music to them.  As I went from child to child giving out the cds and a copy of our new dvd with it, you can't imagine how psyched they were.  I'd like to thank everyone who donated their art to such truly deserving little kids.

No special order.  Thank you so much.
