Now is a Great Time to Book 2020 Shows!

Posted on: November 8th, 2019 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint friends!

Now is a great time to book shows in 2020: Schools, Libraries, Special Events and more. Multiple show discounts are available. As you can see, the show is a big hit at schools, with positive messages promoting reading, exercise and now, learning Spanish!

I hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween! I had a fantastic show at Farmers Branch Halloween in the Park. And for the first time my daughters Amaya and Fiana were part of the show. What a thrill!

Sincerely,
David

Storybook Land Performances

Posted on: August 12th, 2015 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint Friends!

Happy summer! What a July I had. Just as things were wrapping up with my many summer reading club library shows, I got to travel to South Dakota to perform at Storybook Land! It was so much fun to be able to play with the Storybook Land Theater. This very talented group, led by Brian Schultz, was gracious enough to learn some of my David Chicken songs, which we performed live in a castle! I also learned some of their songs, which was great fun.

This was my second visit to Storybook Land in Aberdeen, South Dakota. I was very happy to return. It is such a fun and positive place, filled with happy and friendly people. I highly recommend a visit if you ever find yourself in the area. Hopefully I’ll be back soon!

I hope the rest of your summer is fantastic!

Your friend,
David

Summer Reading Concerts in Full Swing!

Posted on: June 12th, 2015 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint friends!

I hope your summer is getting off to a great start! Ours sure has. The “Summer of Reading” was kicked off May 19 with me helping Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings promote his Summer Reading Club. It was a thrill to stand up with the mayor and get all the kids saying how much they’ll be reading this summer!

Since then I’ve had a barrage of shows, with many more to come. The show is such a great fit with libraries and their summer reading programs. I’ve been performing “Book a Trip” (the video can be seen here) and it always goes over great.

We have a special free concert coming up tomorrow, Saturday June 13, 1 pm at the Irving Public Library. This event will be celebrating the Chautauqua traveling vaudeville show of yesteryear. What’s really neat is, my grandma (Mama Chicken’s mom), Eola Marie Ruth, traveled with the Chautauqua, along with famous entertainers like Edgar Bergen and his buddy Charlie McCarthy. It will be an honor to tell of Grandma’s involvement with the Chautauqua. I know it would make Mama Chicken proud.

I will also have two great musicians joining me tomorrow: My good friend Jason Gonzalez, who has played drums on every David Chicken recording, and Brian Busch, who is a fantastic accordion player. It will be a really fun show. I hope to see you there!

I’ve attached a few photos from recent shows.

Your friend,
David

New David Chicken Single – “Play!”

Posted on: January 2nd, 2014 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint Friends, Happy 2014! Let’s PLAY!

I have a special surprise for the new year – a brand new David Chicken single! It’s called “Play!” The song is about – you guessed it – going outside and playing. Climbing a tree, riding a bike, going swimming … whatever moves you! Watch the new video here.

You can also buy the song on iTunes here 
and Amazon here

We shot the video with our Emmy-Winning friends at Allen City Television, led by the super-talented director Mark Kaufmann. It was a lot of fun to shoot the video, since we filmed all around Allen at a lot of fun locations with nice people. The video has been used to help promote physical activity within the community. Now we’ll be using it for the same purpose around the world! 

So get out and PLAY and have super-fantastic 2014! Mama Chicken, Super Joanie and I are all doing well. We hope the same for you and your family.

Your friend,
David Chicken

Ben & Jerry’s David Chicken Cookie Time Flavor!

Posted on: March 26th, 2013 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint friends!

Well, it’s official, we’ve got our own ice cream flavor! My friend Hunter Rose, the Ice Cream Czar at several North Texas Ben & Jerry’s, decided it was time to rename one of his flavors for the premiere of our new “Cookie Time” single and video.

Special thanks to Nancy Churnin at the Dallas Morning News for documenting the occasion. You can read her article here.

Even though the Sheep-Cow-Horse’s saying “Oop-Scoop-a-Dooperator” means “Please put some spinach on my tutti frutti ice cream”, we didn’t go that route with Ben & Jerry’s. David Chicken’s Cookie Time is a delicious concoction of vanilla ice cream with a chocolate cookie swirl with chocolate chip and chocolate chocolate chip cookie pieces. Be sure to stop by a Metroplex Ben & Jerry’s and give it a taste!

Your friend,

David

Posted on: March 20th, 2013 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint friends!

The music video for my new song “Cookie Time” premiered this week! I would like to thank all of the families who came out to be a part of the video. You all did an amazing job! Be sure to get the music single of the song, available on iTunes and the Amazon Music Store!

My next single will be “Play”, which we will film in the spring with our friends at Allen City Television, the Emmy-winning team who brought you “Book a Trip“, “Recycle Bin“, and of course “Cookie Time“! Stay tuned to my blog and facebook page for announcements about the video shoot!

Enjoy!

Your friend,

David

 

 

Recycle-Bowl in Kokomo, Indiana (photos included)

Posted on: February 19th, 2013 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint Friends!

What a great week I had last week at the Recycle-Bowl!

Keep America Beautiful selects the school that recycles the most material each year and rewards them with a concert and a big check (literally)! Last year the winning school was Rutherford Elementary right here in Mesquite, Texas, where we performed and had an amazing time. The winner this year was Taylor Primary in Kokomo, Indiana! I got to fly up and perform my song “Recycle Bin” for them, which is a natural fit! (We also did a few other tunes that got everyone up singing and dancing). It is such a thrill for me to see hundreds of kids up singing “Recycle bin, so we can use it again!” The greatest joy of songwriting is seeing people enjoying your music. That means even more when it’s a message that you believe in so much.

After my world tour in November, it was small beans to hop up to Indiana! But I very much enjoyed getting up to the midwest, where my roots are. Mama Chicken was born in Walton, Indiana and I was born in Normal, Illinois (a lot of people think that’s ironic, haha!) My Dad and grandparents were all born in the midwest as well.

Everyone was super nice and welcoming. I am thankful to Keep America Beautiful for having me be a part of the Recycle-Bowl each year. I made a lot of new friends at Taylor Primary and hope to see them again soon. Maybe for Earth Day!

Your friend,

David

 

“Cookie Time” music video to be completed soon!

Posted on: December 16th, 2012 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint friends!

We’ve been making a lot of progress on the video for “Cookie Time” and it is SUPER FUN! All of the kids and parents did a fantastic job. It is full of energy and goodness, and fits the song well. I can’t wait to show everyone. It should be done right around the first of the year.

My friend Hunter Rose, who owns several of the local Ben & Jerry’s locations, will even be naming a flavor of their ice cream “David Chicken’s Cookie Time” for the week of the premiere. Check my blog for the latest info on everything.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of my friends! I hope that you have a great holiday season. We have a lot to be thankful for.

Your friend,
David

Posted on: November 1st, 2012 by David Chicken No Comments

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

David Chicken, three-time Emmy® Winner (2008, 2009, 2010 Lone Star NATAS), is about to bring some homemade fun to American families stationed overseas.

Dallas, TX, October 30, 2012: On November 2, David Chicken will begin a journey that will take him around the world. Playing at Navy bases for American families, David will be performing his Live Show Spectacular in Italy, Spain, Japan and Guam throughout the month of November. The show has been a hit stateside for the past decade, with interactive fun and positive messages for kids, including:
• Reading
• Exercise
• Artistry & Imagination
• Recycling
• Good hygiene

The tour coincides with the release of David Chicken’s new app “Brusha Yo Teeth with David Chicken” and the eBook David Chicken Goes to the Dentist, which are available on iTunes and Amazon.

Said David: “I love performing for families. After getting such tremendous reaction to my music in the States, it’s nice to be able to take that music to our troops’ families stationed overseas. Hopefully we can help bring a little piece of home to them.” David will be back in the States just in time for a show at NorthPark Center on November 24 at 2pm.

Successful “Cookie Time” video shoot at Ben & Jerry’s!

Posted on: October 18th, 2012 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint friends!

We had a super-fantastic video shoot for our new song “Cookie Time” on Sunday. What a great group! Everyone came to the Ben & Jerry’s in McKinney, Texas, decked out in their best David Chicken gear and chicken hats. I was very proud of all the kids. They really gave it their all when the cameras started rolling. I’d also like to thank Hunter Rose, the Ice Cream Czar for Ben & Jerry’s here locally, for lining up the shoot. He is a good friend.

This will be a really fun video, to match the energy of the song. We should be premiering it in December or January. Stay tuned to the blog for more info!

Dingle Burbis,
David
