So just what is Koo Koo Kanga Roo?!?
A fake kids band…check!
The next Top 40 gurus…check!
The craziest act you have ever seen…double check!!

Koo Koo Kanga Roo is all about dancing, yelling, and bringing the party. Founders Bryan and Neil won’t be satisfied until the entire room has joined in on the fun. Think the Beastie Boys multiplied by Sesame Street plus the driving dance beats of Daft Punk and the live show antics of the Flaming Lips! You will get sweaty and wild! Oh…and costumes are encouraged!

How did Koo Koo Kangaroo come to be?
Performing in an indie rock band was fun…for a while. Then the constant lugging of gear, half an hour sound checks, and an audience who was only ever half interested in the music they were playing began to take its toll. Bryan and Neil agreed there was more to being in a band than just playing music for their fans. The goal was to create the most fun interactive live show that no one had seen before. The tools to accomplish that goal were; a giant roll of paper (to cover their dorm walls with ideas), a few sharpies, their super weird imaginations, and no rules! A few months later, with those goal accomplished, a dance duo was formed, and that duo was Koo Koo Kanga Roo. Bryan and Neil’s hyperactive stage presence is the driving force onstage and off. Both have a strong commitment to creating an experience that will have you singing in the shower for weeks and reminiscing about the best things in life. It will be the best show you’ve ever seen, the first time you ever see it! Koo Koo Kanga Roo’s new EP ‘Midnight Slushie’ will be released on September 13th and features a guest appearance by Justin Pierre of Motion City Soundtrack.
