Joanie Leeds & The Nightlights What A Zoo!
“Animal-Crazed kids will dig these new tunes, including “Mosquitoes”, “Tofurky Song” and “Froggie Went a Courtin’,” a swingy spin on the classic children’s ballad.” -Michelle Tauber

New York Times

“Her band may be called the Nightlights, but there’s nothing soporific about the music.”

New York Post

“Shine a light: There’s nothing better than a rock band for kids that can make grown-ups laugh, and with tunes like “The Tofurky Song” and “Mosquitoes,” Joanie Leeds and the Nightlights pull it off.”

Time Out NY Kids

“Local chanteuse Joanie Leeds’s latest will be a hit with young zoologists in the making—every song on the CD features a different animal friend. Listen up for a take on the traditional “Froggie Went a Courtin’” with an appearance from rapper Secret Agent 23 Skidoo, a cover of the Phish song “Possum” and the sweet original “My Butterfly.”

School Library Journal

“With her rich, powerful soprano, Leeds belts out these original and traditional songs about crocodiles, hummingbirds, whales, and even mosquitoes. The especially appealing tune “Happy As a Clam” features playful animal idioms and phrases, such as “cat’s got your tongue” and “snug as a bug in a rug.” Other albums: I’m a Rock Star and City Kid.”

I’m A Rock Star picked as one of Washington Post’s Top CDs of the Year!

“Electric guitars and Leeds’s belting vocals make this rock-and-roll. You won’t be able to resist the urge to sing along pretending your hairbrush is a microphone. Most of the tunes provide you with a great way to free your inner rock star”.

Mindy Thomas, Program Director SIRIUS/XM’S Kids Place LiVE

“Joanie Leeds is that cool babysitter who would let you try on her lip gloss once your mom left the house. You idolized her, and your mom knew she could trust her. That’s Joanie. Only she’s also likely to completely ROCK THE ROOF OFF YOUR HOUSE! And a ticket to her show just might run you a few clams less than an hour of babysitting.”

Celebrity Parents Magazine

“Joanie Leeds and the Nightlights’ latest CD, What a Zoo!, is one of those albums that you can listen to over and over again and find something new to appreciate each time.”
