Milkshake- the band that keeps on giving! **WINNER**

***WINNER announced 2/3***
Thanks everyone for entering! Debbie N. has won the Milkshake prize pack.
Enjoy the music Debbie!

Original Post
For parents like me who dislike most kids music, ther
e are a few bands that have pulled me, along with my twins, into their fold.

For this post I'm going to focus exclusively on Milkshake for several reasons:
  1. They are a 'local' band based in Baltimore (but travel so check their tour dates) and they passed the "dance test"
  2. They 'get' the power of mom blogs and are generous enough to provide a most excellent Prize Package.
  3. Vocalist Lisa Mathews has tapped into my inner ballerina with her fabulous selection of tutus. I heart tutus.

So let's begin with the dance test.

If the Twofer are not dancing within the first 3 minutes of hearing a new CD or DVD, the music has not passed the test.
With the Milkshake Screen Play
DVD the girls were up and dancing (curse me for not having the Flip video going at the time) in 1 minute, 43 seconds. They immediately recognized the songs from years of listening to Sirius Kids radio, and were mesmerized by the video of the band. I take for granted that I grew up watching music videos on MTV and well, where have all the videos gone?

Click Here to listen to Milkshake songs and give your kid their own "dance test".

Moving on to the GIVEAWAY:

Milkshake is so hip, so cool, and so supportive that they have given bloggers like me a chance to reward our wonderful readers. Here's the Prize Package:

  • 1 copy of the new DVD "SCREEN PLAY!" that has all kids of music videos, clips of the band backstage, and lots of really fun music

I've never heard of Milkshake, but they look like a lot of fun for my kids, especially my almost 4 yr. old who loves to dance and sing. She would love this package, thanks and crossing my fingers.

I would give this CD to my kindergartener. She loves drama and dancing and is all about the tutus. My older daughter would watch it, probably enjoy it, but refuse to admit it to any of her friends.

I don't know if it counts, but I am already a follower.

I really like "We Got a Band". I think this is a great band and my kids would love it! Happy to tweet and already follow your great blog!

This is a great gift for the preschool crowd - my nieces would love it!

Suanne said...

I'd gift this to AJ's daycare who encourage daily "dance hour" during these bad winter months when they can't go outside. These are great songs..."Pirate" and "Superhero" got some little knees bouncing Chez Laqueur.

I would be giving this great giveaway to my 3 year old daughter! I haven't heard of Milkshake, but they do look great.
