ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mike Mennard is definitely a winner with kids--especially 1st-5th graders--and parents for a decade now. He has released six CD's, but nothing is like his pirate music. But that's because, while Mike lives in Nebraska, he's actually a pirate.

Here is what people are saying about Mike and his music:

"Mike Mennard is Nebraska's most famous pirate--and for good reason. He's not just fun...he's REALLY fun." --Lincoln's 10/11 News

"I can’t tell you how many pirate kids’ albums I’ve never even bothered to seek out based on their sample tracks that clearly demonstrate a soft, froofy performance that would be of no interest whatsoever to those over the age of six. Mike Mennard, however, is a different beast entirely. True, children are clearly his target audience. But he also demonstrates remarkable creativity and talent the likes of which can be thoroughly enjoyed by all ages." --Pirates Magazine

"The Poet Laureate of Sillyness."--Lincoln Journal Star

“Mike blew me away. Blew me away!" —Bruce Lansky, author, children’s poet

"Mike Mennard is one of our state treasures."--Nebraska Outback

"Feelin' particularly swashbuckling today? Well, Mike Mennard has just the thing for you! Pirates Do the Darnedest Things is his swaggering, silly, singalong collection of tunes dedicated to a rogue's life on the sea. Historic tunes, originals, and classic covers are tied together by short skits, limericks, and goofy jokes, all celebrating the joys and trials of being a pirate."--from "Kids' Music that Rocks"


“WOW! The fourth graders at Hill Elementary loved your presentation…Mike, you are the perfect mix of humor and vocabulary that stretches students. You inspired our students to be authors of poetry, prose, and songs. Students continue to write silly songs like you sang for them to impress their friends and classmates.”—Cindy Johnson, Hill Elementary 4th grade, Lincoln, Nebraska

“Mike has a positive and up-beat attitude that is evident in his presentation. It is also apparent that Mike believes in values that build strong family relationships. His own family members are often with him at his presentations and during his programs, he mentions family relationships situations to which his audience can relate.”—Pam Cassel, Hartley Media Specialist, Lincoln, Nebraska

“Mike Mennard is my favorite. He’s better than TV.” —Gabby, 5th Grader, Lincoln, Nebraska

My fifth graders ask to play his CDs during our indoor recesses and laugh every time. Mike is so full of energy and humor that he immediately connects with kids. And his ability to think like a child makes his songs and poems ones children love to memorize with glee.” —Linda Dahlstrom, Newell School 5th Grade, Lincoln, Nebraska

“Mike is incredibly intelligent and is an amazing poet and songwriter.”—Rebecca A. Keenportz, Southwest Public Schools Kindergarten, Indianola, Nebraska

“Mike Mennard rocks!” —Ashley, 4th Grader, Lincoln, Nebraska,

“Mike performed at our school, and the kids absolutely loved him! He also put on a concert for the Southwest Nebraska Reading Council. At both concerts he got the audience singing and dancing and put on a performance for all age levels.” —Rebecca A. Keenportz, Southwest Public Schools Kindergarten, Indianola, Nebraska


“Mike Mennard is one of the funniest entertainers that I have ever met. He is a talented singer, writer, poet, and speaker. I’ve watched him mesmerize crowds of young and older than young.” —Kathy Bollinger, Union College Professor of Education, Lincoln, Nebraska

“How else am I to put it: Mike Mennard is the very best there is at making music and poetry come alive for kids.” —Barry Van Iderstein, Associate Superintendent of Education for Seventh-day Adventist Schools in Northern California.

“If there is a better children’s artist, I don’t know of him or her. It gives me a little pride, actually, that the finest children’s songwriter and poet may actually be a fellow Nebraskan. He has come to our school numerous times, and the kids and teachers alike beg to have him back.” —Jeanne Hevener, Principal, Prairie Hill School, Roca, Nebraska

“Mike is the best son I have, even if he’s the only one.” —Mike’s Mom

“Mennard is capturing the hearts of kids everywhere—and fast. In large part because he loves kids.” —Lincoln Journal Star
