Disney on Ice Toy Story 3 & Mr. Singer & The Sharp Cookies Winners

The wait is over.   We have two big winners today for ChiIL Mama's Free Ticket Tuesday.   Our first give away is 4 free tickets to The Beat Kitchen this Sunday at noon, for local favorite and former ChiIL Mama's Win A Disc Wednesday band, Mr. Singer & The Sharp Cookies.     

And our first winner is.... Michael B.   Congrats!   Your name (+3) will be on the guest list.   

Here's a bit about the band.   

You'll feel a little naughty, like a kid caught with 
her hand in the cookie jar, when you say the
name of this rockin', folky kid disc,  
"Muddy Water Beaver Dam Band".   We love a
band with a sense of humor!   

If you haven't discovered Mr. Singer 
& The Sharp Cookies yet, you're in for a delightful
surprise. We love to feature Chi Town locals, and 
Neil Firstenleit, that's Mr. Singer to YOU, is one of 
the best.
Mr. Singer is a regular fixture at the Lincoln Park 
Zoo story time, and well worth checking
out, if you still have preschoolers in tow.

This disc is so much fun.   There are catchy 
originals with creative lyrics, and folk classics with 
new twists.   I was just getting into their sweet 
version of "This Little Light of Mine" when they 
snuck in the lyrics,  "Are we gonna trash our 
neighbor's house?  No." and had me cracking up.

They're a fun mix of punk, snark, and folk and 
they're just silly enough, without being 
condescending or annoying, to have the kids and 
grown ups laughing and singing along.

I've heard rumors that (like our friends, 
The Boogers) they cover The Ramones live, and 
do a rockin' version of "Rockaway Beach".   

It's no wonder they won a children's music web 
award for "Best Album for School Aged Children" 
for "Muddy Water Beaver Dam Band". 

Check out the Sharp Cookies web site for future shows, 
photos and press, tee's and CDs.

Still want more?   You can read our full review of his latest CD, Muddy Water Beaver Dam Band HERE or come on out to the show and see the whole dam band, LIVE.   $7.   All ages.

Our grand prize winner this week is going to the ice show with a free family 4 pack.   Big congrats to Martha C.!
