MILKSHAKE - Creating Great Rock Music for Kids
Saturday, April 27, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM (PDT)
Saturday, April 27th, 2013
1pm-2pm - $8.00 per person
In Milkshake's short nine years together, the band has released four award-winning CDs, a Parents Choice Silver Award for their DVD Screen Play, and they have had music videos on Noggin, PBS KIDS and Discovery Kids’ Emmy-winning ToddWorld. The band has never stopped growing and evolving. Great Day is Milkshake's fourth CD for kids and kids at heart. It was nominated for a Grammy for “Best Musical Recording for Children” in 2010. In keeping with the band's desire to grow with their own children, the songs on Great Day touch on issues of friendship, age, self-esteem, goals and ambitions among other things--things that matter to a 6 to 10 year-old. Like all Milkshake CDs, the music transcends age, and both younger and older fans will enjoy this new release. As Parents magazine says: "If kids don't push the replay button, parents will."
Milkshake will release its fifth CD, Got a Minute?, in spring 2013.
This special trio performance features Lisa Mathews, Mikel Gehl and Michael Sheppard of the Milkshake Band.
