Annie and The Natural Wonder Band

Annie and Safari Bob create and perform fun-filled, interactive songs and dances about the wonders of nature for the whole family to enjoy. For the past 30 years the Natural Wonder Band has performed to over 850,000 friends around the world. Shows are: "On Safari" (rainforest, jungle), "Whales and Tales" (fish, lobster, shark and sea creatures), "Totally Bugged Out" (bugs, insects, spiders) and "Everyday is Earth Day" (environment, recycling, conservation, endangered species). The husband and wife team starred in “Annie’s Place” on Cablevision, were spotlighted on "Good Day New York" and “The Fairfield Exchange” and featured in articles by the New York Times, Family Fun Magazine, The Gannet Papers, The Hartford Courant and on line blogs. Annie has sung the National Anthem at Shea Stadium 3 times and has performed at Avery Fisher Hall, The United Nations, Natural History Museum of L.A., and the Mystic, Norwalk and Brooklyn Aquariums. Annie and Safari Bob wrote the centennial theme for the Bronx Zoo.
