Milkshake giveaway @ Lisa @ Oh Boy oh Boy oh Boy

Check out this give away at LISA'S Blog OH BOY OH BOY OH BOY!

Although I love me a tasty ice cream milkshake, but today I am sharing a different kind of Milkshake. If you're a mom you my already have heard of Milkshake, the fun music group who preforms on PBS Kids and Noggin, that are great for all ages.
About Milkshake:
Milkshake is a band on a mission: to create great rock music for kids. Led by singer Lisa Mathews and guitarist Mikel Gehl, whose songs for grown-ups have been featured in movies and prime-time television, and whose indie rock group Love Riot garnered critical praise during its 10-year run, Milkshake has won over preschoolers without compromising songcraft, stagecraft or their authentic rock&roll spirit.From the release of their first CD Happy Songs (inspired by the birth of Lisa’s daughter and Mikel’s son), it was clear that Milkshake was an exciting departure from traditional kids’ music. The band’s songs were added to radio playlists across the country; a second CD, Bottle of Sunshine, earned raves from kids, parents and critics; Noggin enlisted Lisa and Mikel to film two videos for the premiere season of Jack’s Big Music Show; and Milkshake was asked to bring its high-energy stage act to the opening leg of the Jamarama Live! tour.Milkshake has created original songs and videos for PBS KIDS’ “Share the Earth Day” programming, new songs and videos for Discovery Kids’ preschool hit ToddWorld, the west coast leg of Jamarama Live! and a just-completed 10-song-and-video project for PBS KIDS preschool programming block.2007 saw the official release of Milkshake's 3rd CD PLAY!, a celebration of every kid’s desire to just have fun. Hook- and harmony-filled, PLAY! covers all the bases, with songs about baseball (featuring a cameo from hometown hero Cal Ripken, Jr.), bowling, pretending, playing music, parades, planting a garden and just plain going wild. As a bonus, the disc includes the three new songs Milkshake created for ToddWorld.In fall 2008 the band released SCREEN PLAY, a DVD chock full of live-action and computer-animated videos, candid backstage clips and performance footage that showcase their animated, good-humored nature. Bonus tracks include two original videos created for PBS KIDS.With tuneful, memorable songs that evoke influences from Rodgers and Hammerstein to Lennon-McCartney to The White Stripes, Milkshake continues to create music that appeals to both kids and their parents, even after listening to the same CD five times in a row.
And I have to say, they are kidding with that last line. We listened to their
CD Play! more than 3 times today and I really like it. There is a great variety of sounds but none of that typically cheesey sounding kids stuff. Their lyrics are kids friendly but the music is family friendly! It's something I can crank up ('cuz the kids asked me to, I swear) and not be totally embarrassed by if someone else hears.

And now you have a chance to win your very own copy of their CD Play! and their DVD Screen Play.
