Freedom in a Box
Holiday sale! Both Deedle Deedle Dees albums are on sale at CDBaby until December 31st! Only $10 each (regularly $15) Who are The Deedle Deedle Dees? Founded by Brooklyn-based teacher/songwriter Lloyd Miller in 2003, The Deedle Deedle Dees use rock-n-roll, country, hip hop, New Orleans piano music, punk, and folk to teach kids about American history, the natural world, social action, and other cool stuff that they might never have thought about before. Revolutionaries and unsung heroes are our favorite topics: Satchel Paige, Nellie Bly, Henry Box Brown, César Chávez, and Eleanor Roosevelt are just a few of the fascinating characters who live in our songs. Kids are never expected to sit and listen to The Deedle Deedle Dees at our concerts: they spread their arms and fly around like Amelia Earhart, bounce and tumble in a box like Henry Brown, throw the 'hesitation pitch' like Satchel Paige, and march to freedom like Harriet Tubman. The Dees have brought their unique rock-n-roll classroom to many big-time venues like Symphony Space and the Knitting Factory in New York, but also to public schools, libraries, parks, zoos, and other family venues across the country.
