A Knee-Slappin’ Good Time!

Kids are a very special audience, and Richard Alan Productions provides them with a very special band of their own: The TEDDY BEAR BAND! Performing for over 35 years, The Teddy Bear Band has become an institution in the Twin Cities and beyond, playing hundreds of shows annually and “bearing” a simple philosophy:

You’re in the Show!

A Paws for History

Started by Early Childhood Teacher Ron Gustafson and a group of talented dads in 1985, the Teddy Bear Band talks to kids without talking down to them. The shows are developmentally appropriate, and may be adjusted for various “ages and stages,” with a strong emphasis on PARTICIPATION! Whether they’re Playin’ Guitar, riding a Merry Go Round, or tossing their Bears in the Air, kids are fully engaged from beginning to end–and so are any adults within earshot! Shows are typically 45 minutes–and feature REAL musicians playing REAL instruments…for a REAL good time!

1 – 2 – 3 – SHOW!

If you’re in charge of booking entertainment for your library, school, summer program or other childrens’ event, your job just got a lot easier. Just visit the band’s official website: www.teddybearband.com. There you’ll find lots more information, including an online press kit and TBB products you can buy–and sell! (It’s a great option for funding your event.) As with all of our entertainers at Richard Alan Productions, the Teddy Bear Band gives you tremendous flexibility, from the size of the band to the theme of the show. And did we mention Panda? She’s got a bear-sized hug for everybody, and usually steals the show as well!

Are You Ready, Teddy?

From traditional favorites to instantly lovable original tunes, the award-winning Teddy Bear Band puts on a honey of a show! Watch our promotional video below, read some testimonials, or contact us today for immediate help in planning YOUR event.
