Milkshake It Up!

I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that the music playing in your car is far from the music you rocked out to in earlier days. You can sing your little darlings’ songs and jingles by heart and hear them over and over again in your head, but you miss the days of air guitar and ‘80s hair bands (just a little).

For all you music lovers with kiddos, we've found just what you need! Milkshake, the groundbreaking independent children's recording group, brings you family-friendly music with an edgy, upbeat sound that both kids and parents will love! The group’s new CD, Great Day, hits stores Aug. 25, but you can find previous award-winning CDs, DVD and music videos online and in stores now.

Milkshake originated with two musicians and a love for kids. Founding members Lisa Mathews and Mike Gehl saw a need for a different style of kids’ music. As parents themselves, they vowed to "grow" their music right along with their own young children. They have done just that, producing hits that transcend age and appeal to both younger and older kids alike ... not to mention you, Mom and Dad. With an attempt to avoid "dumbing down" their lyrics, Milkshake sings from both the parents’ point of view and the kids’ too. Mathews and Gehl touch on self-esteem, goals, friendship, inclusion, family and material desires - things that really matter to kids! You'll rock out with your family to tunes that are energetic, colorful, meaningful and just good clean fun! And rest assured — they'll be songs you won't mind getting stuck in your head.

For more information, visit www.milkshakemusic.com and look for the band at this year's Austin Kiddie Limits in October.
