What People Are Saying About Monkey Monkey Music and Meredith LeVande


“Monkey Monkey Music just may be the best addition to Public Broadcasting since Mister Rogers!” – Karen Noonan, Program Manager, WDSC-TV



“KCET is thrilled to be adding Monkey Monkey Music Videos to our daily broadcast schedule. Meredith LeVande is extremely talented and really has a way of connecting with kids and involving them in the songs. We think viewers throughout Southern California will be charmed and entertained by her fresh voice and infectious spirit!” – Robert McDonnell, Director of KCET‘s Education and Production Services



“KMOS-TV in Mid-Missouri loves Monkey Monkey Music! The interstitials play throughout our children’s programming seven days a week. Monkey Monkey Music is everything children’s music should be: fun, engaging and most importantly, educational. The videos will get your kids off the couch and moving to the music.” – Kathy Forste, Programming and Traffic Manager, KMOS-TV



“Definitely the best kids’ band on the circuit.” –  Ellis Rice, Cultural Supervisor,  Charleston Heights Arts Center, Las Vegas, NV



“Monkey, Monkey Music is geared for young children.  They just love the interaction and they respond positively with voice and energy. A great 50 minutes for kids.” – Mary Mahaffey, Director of Recreation for The Town of North Hempstead



“Warren Township Recreation Commission and residents loved Monkey Monkey! Meredith LeVande shines her luminous light by having the children learn, and explore life through music. She even brought me back to my own childhood. She did a fantastic job!” – Eleanora Hermann, RA, Warren Township Director



“Keep up the GREAT work! Monkey Monkey Music is VERY appealing to children, both to watch and listen to. The songs are gentle, yet lively and infectious, perfect for youngsters and for parents who are discerning about what their children watch. There is a lot of so-called ‘children’s music’ out there today with distorted guitars and a hip-hop feel that makes one wonder if the target audience is really the children, or older teen siblings or even parents. Meredith’s music really stands out as family-and-child friendly, and it leaves you with a good feeling.” – Chere Wood, Program Assistant, Utah Education Network



“The elements Monkey Monkey Music has created are wonderfully educational, engaging and entertaining.” – Tom Carter, Director of Programming, Ozarks Public Television



“In this day and age, children need all the positive and uplifting support they can get. Monkey Monkey Music is a great source for children to not only feel great about themselves, but also to reinforce preschool and elementary lessons that they will need to become the best that they can be!” – Holly Parker, Traffic Coordinator, RSU Public Television



“Meredith’s love of music and children resonates in her videos. They are delightful and something that we do not have enough of.” – Karen Barnes, Director of Programming and Development, KEET – Public Television for the Northcoast



“Once again, Meredith and Monkey Monkey Music were a huge hit! Our client, ESPN, was extremely happy with her performances and we hope to be working with her band more. Not only does she do a great job of interacting with the kids, but even adults enjoyed her fantastic lyrics. Case in point: I found myself singing the chorus to one of her original songs hours after the show!” – Ryan Oakes, Partner, The Pandora Group

They danced, they participated, and remained engaged the entire duration of the show. I would highly recommend this program to any venue or library.” – Renee Baez, Youth Services Librarian, Lynbrook Public Library

Dan Zanes please step aside so Meredith LeVande can win a Grammy.” – Raquel, Mother of Lily and Santos



“Meredith, I just wanted to thank you so much for your performance at Conor’s first birthday party. You made the day so special for us and my family and friends are still talking about how much fun they had. I have never seen Conor (or Fiona) dance and smile so much as they did during your show. One of my cousins even quoted that you were the best children’s entertainer they had ever seen. You definitely helped to make the day one that we will always remember. Fiona is already asking about when we can see another show.” – Tracy, Mother of Conor and Fiona

Obviously Sam watched it five times already and loooooves ‘Keep On Truckin”!! 🙂 He talks about you like a friend and says he is missing you!

He is singing your tunes several times a day and we will make sure his baby sister knows them too!” – Virginie, Mother of Sam



“Meredith, we absolutely LOVED your performance at Charlie & Olivia’s birthday party! You are so incredibly talented and you have such a wonderful passion for teaching little children through music! You are truly amazing! My little granddaughter, Hunter, was absolutely captivated by you and your wonderful music! She loves her new DVD and will have so much fun dancing to your songs and remembering you! I wish that we had known about you early enough to have booked you to perform at Hunter’s birthday party! We are thrilled that Hunter got a ‘front row seat’ at your performance on her actual birthday! You were the highlight of her first birthday! I am especially glad that I got into town from Texas in time to enjoy your show, as well!” – Debb, Grandmother

I would recommend Monkey Monkey Music for any child’s party at any age!!!!” – Elizabeth G., Parent
