Dance parties, rainbows, a fascination with flashy footwear: as it turns out, toddlers and hipsters have a lot in common. Speaking to both these demographics is Minneapolis-based interactive dance party duo, Koo Koo Kanga Roo. “We tour the country playing shows for tiny kids at libraries and for adults in bars,” says Neil Olstad, one half of the duo. Blending hip hop and dance beats with catchy songs about dinosaurs, cats and pizza, Koo Koo shows, “are centered around acting silly, dancing as hard as you can, and sweating.”
Koo Koo is celebrating their 6th anniversary this year and just released a compilation called “Rad-trospective.” To honor the occasion, the guys created a bunch of new merch, including these good lookin’ button packs:
Neil said, “Having cool, unique merch is really important to us. We’ve always wanted to offer buttons and Busy Beaver’s “button packs” are perfect for us. We’re excited to see these buttons on backpacks, vests and dog collars all over the place!”
Koo Koo Kanga Roo’s Rad-tropsective and button packs are available online, and if you happen to be an adult or toddler who likes crazy dancing and gold sneakers, check their upcoming tour dates for a show near year.
