ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dennis Warner’s tenth release “Beep Beep” is also his first album intended for children. Years of requests for such a project came to fruition after receiving a grant from the Central Minnesota Arts Board. “Beep Beep” weaves together Warner favorites from when he was growing up to newer songs, either written by him or friends and colleagues in the folk music world like Tom Rush and Tom Paxton. The songs flow beautifully together as Dennis combines fun and up-tempo with meaningful ballads, along with songs sure to bring a laugh to any age listener. In the grant application Dennis stated, “As an artist, I am not interested in creating something silly just to have a kids CD for sale. The songs have to mean something. This will be an album intended for kids, but with songs adults will also enjoy.”

Using his expert intuition to identify quality songs, Dennis Warner dove deep into his past to resurrect a couple of songs his Dad, musician Rod Warner, used to sing around the house while his protégé’ was barely out of diapers. Dennis remembered how “Beep Beep” and “The Marvelous Toy” always made him laugh. This same fun, lighthearted spirit comes out as well in the “Fish Story Song”, “Cat in the Sink”, “Biscuit Man” and in the blazing fast, tongue twisting tale “Rubber Blubber Whale”. Texture and depth are added with “We Have Each Other”, “Skippin’ Stones”, “Goodnight to the Moon and Stars” and a rousing first ever studio version of his anthem “Beads on One String”, previously released on a live CD and also in a book by the same name.

Dennis Warner is an experienced artist, averaging over 100 concerts every year, nationwide. Some of his past performances include prestigious venues such as the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts (Washington, D.C) and the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts (St. Paul, MN), along with festivals such as the Kerrville Folk Festival. Whether his concerts take place at theaters, colleges, schools, libraries, spiritual centers or other community meeting places, Warner’s audiences feel equally at home. Besides music, Dennis is also a frequent guest speaker throughout the country, talking about his popular children’s book Beads on One String, now in its Fifth Printing.

“Beep Beep” was recorded at Thousand Pines Studio in Minnesota with Warner’s long time band “the D’s”: Dan Neale (guitar/vocals), Derrick Raiter (percussion/vocals) and Dennis “DK” Kennedy (marimba/harmonica/vocals). Warner accompanies his vocals on both six and twelve string guitars. Several special guests also appear, including vocalist Glen Everhart making his fourth appearance on a Dennis Warner album, opera singer Jack Richter and Nashville musician Julie Rust.

An incredible gift to children of all ages
This CD is so much fun...the songs are uplifting and energetic! Beads on One String has such a positive message and is a wonderful song to share. However, Goodnight to the Moon and Stars is my favorite song on this CD and is an absolutely beautiful lullaby to sing to your babies and then with them as they get older.

Dennis Warner hits a home run!
Dennis' children’s CD is fun, entertaining, uplifting, positive and inspirational. My grandson laughs and giggles as he sings along with “Beep Beep” and “Beads on One String.” My personal favorite is “We Have Each Other.” A great children’s cd…parents and grandparents will love it too!

A Children's Album For All Ages!
Dennis Warner's album, "Beep Beep", was supposed to be an album targeted to the younger set, but at 66, I don't qualify for that age bracket. The title song (from my own youth), Tom Paxton's "The Marvelous Toy", and his own "Beads On One String" should be heard by the young AND the young at heart. Gift yourself with this album as well as your favorite youngs5er. Five stars!!!

Dennis Warner's Beep Beep
Dennis really knows how to write, perform and record a song. I have played guitar and mandolin for Dennis for years and I have to paraphrase Bobby Vee: "Dennis writes and sings a song the way it's supposed to be done".

Beep Beep CD by Dennis Warner
Dennis Warner’s CD “Beep Beep!”
Wow! This is great music for youngsters and an inspiration for parents and teachers of young children. Lots of fun; classics like "The Marvelous Toy", tongue twisting "Rubber Blubber Whale" and a sweet lullaby"Goodnight to the Moon and Stars" to finish. My favorite ,“Beads on One String” ,is a song I teach my students as part of an anti-bullying curriculum, and one that will stay in their hearts for a life time.

Wonderful Children's CD for Kids of all ages!
Beep Beep is fun and engaging from the start, a wonderful selection of music. The CD has two of my favorite kids' songs, the funny tongue twisting "Rubber Blubber Whale" by Si Kahn and classic "Marvelous Toy" by Tom Paxton and my favorite Dennis Warner original,"Beads on One String". I fell in love with "Skippin' Stones" the first time I heard it. Dennis has a rich, full voice, great to sing along with. My family has been listening to Beep Beep over and over!
