Music Made For Kids, Enjoyed By All...The Wanna Bees, as in what do you wanna bee when you grow up, is a band that writes songs catchy enough to grab the attention of kids, and cool enough for the whole family to enjoy. The Wanna Bees aim to use fun music and video to introduce children to careers and overall positive themes, such as "Work Together" and "Dream Big" and encouraging kids to exercise. Sing and dance along with The Wanna Bees as they rock out to songs telling you what a day on their job is all about.


    The Wanna Bees were created in February 2002. After taking a hiatus from the children’s entertainment project from 2003-2007 to play with their respective party bands, the members of The Wanna Bees regrouped in 2008 to put focus on their unique brand of "kindie" music. At that time, songs were recorded and a demo DVD was filmed. More songs and video continue to be written and recorded today. The Wanna Bees plan to bring their music to life on CDs, DVDs, TV, and LIVE! Performances.


    The work of The Wanna Bees has been recognized and well received by the public and critics alike. In May 2009, their song “You’re In Toledo, Baby!” was selected as a Top 10 Finalist by a panel of judges for the FOX Toledo/Toledo Free Press Song of Toledo Contest 2009. The song was then further voted as a Top 5 finalist by the public. Also, in February 2011, The Wanna Bees’ music video for their song “GO! (April in the D)” was selected as a Top 10 Finalist in the FOX Sports Detroit April In The D Contest 2011 by a panel of judges that included worldwide entertainer Kid Rock.


    The Wanna Bees didn't stop there, as 2012 proved to be a very productive year for Doctor Dan and Builder Brad.  The Wanna Bees took their acoustic-rock duo to the people, and the people responded.  The energetic duo quickly became one of the most popular family friendly bands in Northwest Ohio/Southeast Michigan - kicking off the New Year at the infamous Walleye Drop in Port Clinton, OH, rocking the stage at the acclaimed Ann Arbor Summer Festival, and wrapping up the year with an original song featured on the Make A Wish Foundation's "Holiday Wishes 2" CD.  The fun and interactive kindie band has blossomed into a Regional act with 2013 dates in Detroit and at the Beat Kitchen in Chicago.
