Koo Koo Kanga Roo at Addendum!

Do you know Koo Koo Kanga Roo? You should! They are Neil and Bryan (pictured above), an interactive dance party duo from Minneapolis, MN. Since 2008, Koo Koo Kanga Roo have been all over the country putting on shows at preschools, bars, church basements and even nursing homes. The show is centered on acting silly, dancing as hard you can, and sweating. 

Their first book, Unicorns R Real!, is now out. A book! About how Unicorns are real! They totally are. Bryan and Neil saw one once.

To celebrate their book, we hosted a dance party, sing-along, book signing launch party at Addendum today! 

There was so much awesomeness happening - guests could make unicorn horns to wear during the party, 

there were free Koo Koo Kanga Roo stickers, 

there was, of course, the brand-new book Unicorns R Real! to read, 

(have we mentioned the horns?!)

there was book signing, both before and after the show, 

Baby unicorns!

Reading the book Unicorns R Real!

Browsing at Addendum.

and there was music! And dancing! 

We cleared a space for a dance floor and everyone joined in! 

After the Koo Koo songs, there was a special rendition of the Happy Birthday song to a one-year-old birthday girl! 

Happy Birthday!

Guests checked out our selection of books at Addendum. 

They also modeled the fabulous Koo Koo Kanga Roo t-shirts! 

We have signed books at Addendum if you couldn't make it to the show!

Thank you to Bryan and Neil for joining us today for an incredible event! You can bet this won't be the last time that Koo Koo Kanga Roo shows up at Addendum...
