“It’s all positive messages with ShirLaLa, both live and on their new “Earth Worm Disco” CD. Earth Day New York was thrilled to include ShirLaLa in our programs for Earth Day 2012. They were able to capture kids’ attention and get them excited about recycling and other eco-friendly endeavors. A diverse audience in the middle of New York City’s Grand Central Station was enrapt with the story and songs. They wiggled like worms, danced for an hour and recyled everything in the room right on stage.  It was awesome! The energy and vitality in the room was infectious and everyone left tapping their toes and dancing away from their chairs.”
