Established in 1985, the Teddy Bear Band (TBB) is probably the longest running local kids band in the Twin Cities. They have been entertaining families for almost 40 years, with many of their earliest fans growing up to introduce their own children to the band. This background has helped them develop a program that is both entertaining and developmentally appropriate for their audience.

About the Teddy Bear Band

The Teddy Bear Band is dedicated to connecting with kids “where they live” through developmentally appropriate music, fun and participation. Families can catch them at shows all over the Twin Cities.

We’re told that the band met while attending ECFE Daddy & Me Early Childhood classes with their own children. They decided to take what they learned about music and early childhood development to create a show appealing to both kids and adults. The band was so popular that they played over 150 shows in their first year.

Awards and Recognitions

TBB was inducted into The Minnesota Music Hall of Fame on November 4, 2016 and has received many awards from MN Music Academy. They also received a special Proclamation from the State of MN declaring June 28, 2015 to be Teddy Bear Band Day, as well as recognition from nationally respected early childhood experts.
