Children love repetition. They'll read the same books, watch the same movies, and listen to the same song over and over and over again, as many times as their parents will allow. And some of the stuff kids love is absolutely insufferable -- but you play it for them anyway, because you love them and it makes them happy.
If you're one Barney singalong away from losing your mind, it's time to get to know Princess Katie & Racer Steve. The duo is a wonderful breath of fresh air in the world of children's entertainment.
The couple got their start as a band when Katie enlisted Steve to perform with her in New York hospitals and events for at-risk kids. Though they'd never been songwriters, those kids inspired the duo to create something spectacular.
When you put Princess Katie & Racer Steve's Songs for the Coolest Kids or Fast & Feisty in your CD player, you won't hear the usual high-pitched vocals and circus soundtrack noise that you find on most kids' albums. Princess Katie sings in an actual human voice -- often compared to Natalie Merchant -- while husband Racer Steve rocks a guitar like the big boys. Princess Katie & Racer Steve are far more than simply bearable for parents -- you'll probably love them as much as your kids do.
Repetition is no problem with the Princess Katie & Racer Steve albums, because each album offers up a great mix of different styles, including country, rock, rap, jazz, and Latin-inspired tunes. The sound is hip and mature, and the lyrics are packed with positive messages for kids. Princess Katie & Racer Steve's songs encourage kids to use their imaginations, always try their hardest, be kind and keep a positive attitude.
The Princess Katie & Racer Steve live show is an experience that children and parents alike will enjoy -- a high energy, family-friendly rock and roll show. The band will be on tour in early 2010 to promote their upcoming album, Tiny Cool, scheduled for a February 16 release. Here's a list of confirmed tour dates -- see if Katie & Steve are coming to your town:
- January 17th at the Providence PAC in Providence, RI
- February 6th at the Durham Performing Arts Center in Durham, NC
- February 18th at the Stocker Center in Elyria, Ohio

- February 21st at the Music Hall in Detroit, MI
