In a city mostly known for hip-hop duos like Bight Club and the now-defunct MC/VL, Koo Koo Kanga Roo stands out as the only team of family-friendly rappers. With songs like "Rollin' In the Minivan" and "Don't Wanna Do My Chores," Koo Koo manages to make their music and live shows appealing to both kids and adults.

Frequently described as a cross between the Beastie Boys and Sesame Street, Koo Koo encourages audience participation at their live shows, including singalongs, dance parties, and often a cake-eating contest. Most recently, Koo Koo amused crowds of children and grownups at Rock the Cradle.

Koo Koo Kanga Roo stopped by the Local Show for a live performance. Songs performed: "Awesome Rainbows," "Friendship Bracelets," and "Dinosaur Stomp."
