The Grammy-nominated Baltimore rock band for kids, Milkshake, is coming to NYC to celebrate its 2009 album, Great Day and the Culture Mom Blog is giving away FOUR tickets to this fabulous event! Milkshake will rock out in a surprise-filled performance for families on Saturday, April 17th, at 10 a.m. as part of the House of Kids series at The Fillmore at Irving Plaza.
Milkshake was founded by Lisa Matthews and Mikel Gehl, both members of the rock group Love Riot. After becoming new parents, they found themselves thinking up songs to entertain their toddlers, and consequently recorded an album of these songs in 2002. Since then, their band has grown to 6 members, and they have become familiar to millions of American households through the band’s colorful, energetic music videos, seen on Nick Jr., PBS Kids and Discovery Kids.
In addition to the Grammy-nominated album, Great Day, Milkshake has released three critically acclaimed, multi-award-winning CDs â€“ Happy Songs, Bottle of Sunshine, and PLAY! â€“ as well as a Parentsâ€™ Choice Silver Award-winning DVD, Screen Play!, a joyous mix of MTV-like videos, animation, in-concert videos and cool bonus features, including interviews with the band and a pair of videos featured on PBS Kids. The band even found inspiration and time to create their own comic book, featuring Milkshake as superheroes.
The House of Kids series is aimed at bringing parents and kids together through the shared appreciation of live music. In addition to Milkshake, the April 17th show will feature performers from the Big Apple Circus, storytellers, child performers, and more. This is a show not to be missed!
Check out Milkshake’s music and videos on their web site.
