Milkshake: The Kids’ Band That Parents Love to Rock With, Too (Giveaway!)
Posted Feb 11 2009 2:55pm
If you’ve got preschoolers and you own a TV, then you’ve certainly become acquainted with the hit band, Milkshake! Led by singer Lisa Mathews and guitarist Mikel Gehl, the band’s mission is to create great rock music for kids. My twins and I have been listening to their most recent CD, Play!, and our opinion is that they have definitely fulfilled their mission! As soon as the first song, “We Got a Band,” starts up on our car’s CD player, we’re singing and bouncing around to the music. These are not your typical kids’ songs, a la “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and “The Wheels on the Bus.” These songs are so cool that even adults love to sing along! And I do… Even better, I’m going to spread the joy around by giving away a Play! CD and two Screen Play DVDs by Milkshake. Play! has songs about pirates, superheroes, bowling, baseball and even bowling! And it contains three bonus songs that Milkshake created for the show, ToddWorld. The Screen Play DVD has videos (both live-action and computer-animated), backstage clips and footage of their performances. They’re both great entertainment that the whole family will enjoy.
I encourage you to go to http://www.milkshakemusic.com to read more about the band and their music. You can sign up for their free newsletter, hear clips of their songs, read lyrics, look at pictures, get news of upcoming concerts, order merchandise, and more. They’re having a limited time offer right now where they’ll give you a free Milkshake Beachball Baseball if you order through their Google Checkout store. For the giveaway, I will randomly pick three people from the qualified entries to win either a Milkshake CD or a DVD.
