Who are the Deedle Deedle Dees?

Founded by Brooklyn-based teacher/songwriter Lloyd Miller in 2003, the Deedle Deedle Dees use rock-n-roll, country, hip hop, New Orleans piano music, punk, and folk to teach kids about American history, the natural world, social action, and other cool stuff that they might never have thought about before. Revolutionaries and unsung heroes are our favorite topics: Satchel Paige, Nellie Bly, Henry Box Brown, César Chávez, and Eleanor Roosevelt are just a few of the fascinating characters who live in our songs. Kids are never expected to sit and listen to the Deedle Deedle Dees at our concerts: they spread their arms and fly around like Amelia Earhart, bounce and tumble in a box like Henry Brown, throw the "hesitation pitch" like Satchel Paige, and march to freedom like Harriet Tubman. The Dees have brought their unique rock-n-roll classroom to many big-time venues like Symphony Space and the Knitting Factory in New York, but also to public schools, libraries, parks, zoos, and other family venues across the country.

awesome cd
totally rocks, sly but ever-enlightening take on history, science, & social studies, it's not cute (making anti-cute moms like me very grateful)

we all love this cd!
We're vegetarians, so of course I love the vegetarian trex song; but the whole CD is absolutely amazing! I've learned a thing or two from it, and my 4yo asks me to look things up that he hears in the songs; Henry Box Brown, for example, we were inspired to read more about the real story. I even listen to this CD at work because it doesn't sound like the typical kid toddler loves it as well, he dances and smiles at the start of each song! Thank you Deedles!!!

my daughter loves it!
My daughter and I saw the Deedle Deedle Dees at a public library in Lexington, KY and were immediately fans...I purchased the CD shortly after that. Whenever my little one gets in the car, she shouts, "Please play the Deedle Deedle Dees, PLEASE!." She knows all the lyrics to just about every song now. Great music for kids and adults.
