Our new album is out today!

Our first album in five years comes out TODAY, September 29th. 

It's called Sing-a-long History, Vol II: The Rocket Went Up! It's the second installment in Dees leader Lloyd H. Miller's Sing-a-long History series, a collection of albums that tell stories from history using music. The first volume, Sing-a-long History, Vol I: Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!, came out last year. It's an introduction to the Civil War era featuring Lloyd backed up by a raucous jazz band performing songs from the 1800s as well as original tunes inspired by stories of the time. 

Sing-a-long History, Vol II: The Rocket Went Up! is a record of all original songs drawn from the history of science, discovery, and magic. The title track celebrates female astronauts. There are songs about marathon swimmer Diana Nyad, computer programmer Ada Lovelace, Charles Darwin, and Harry Houdini. And all sorts of other stories in song that we can't wait for you to hear. 

You can buy the album right now here. You can also find it on iTunes and other download services. 

Brooklyn CD release concert: October 22nd at Jalopy Theatre and School of Music at 3pm.

The Deedle Deedle Dees are back!

2016 is a big year for the Deedle Deedle Dees. We're putting out our first album in five years, a record that explores the history of science and discovery. Release dates for singles, videos, and the album itself coming soon.

The Dees will be playing a bunch this year. We just added our dates at SXSW in Austin, TX, to the calendar as well as our annual appearance at the River's Family Music Meltdown & Book Bash in Northampton, MA. I'm now listing all full-band Dees shows and my own solo shows all on the same calendar on my site,, in the interest of trying to confuse you all less (but I realize even this sentence I'm finishing now is confusing).
