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,

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!

David & Mama Chicken will be a part of the Polyphonic Spree’s Holiday Extravaganza this Saturday, December 22, 8pm at Lakewood Theater in Dallas. The event is sold out but if you’re planning on attending we’ll see you there! Happy Holidays!

“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,

World Tour 2012 Highlights (photos included)

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

Galloint friends!

Wow, what a magnificent journey I had traveling all the way around the world! The tour lasted for three weeks and it was something I will never forget. In Italy I performed in Naples and Sigonella (Close to Sicily). In Spain I performed in Rota. In Japan I performed at Atsugi, Yokosuka, Sasebo, and Okinawa. And I had two shows in Guam. All of the shows were for U.S. Navy families except for one of the shows in Guam, which was for the Air Force.

Everyone I encountered was so friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to help with the performances and show me around each town to get some local flavor. Special thanks to Kelly, Staci and Antonio. The local flavor was amazing — we ate some really fun and delicious food! (My favorite was Italian bruschetta with fresh mozzarella & pizza and … well, I’m not too sure what all I ate in Japan, but I liked it 🙂

The shows went over very much like shows in the States: Families getting up and having a good time, singing and dancing along to the music. “Funky Fish Party” and “Recycle Bin” were big hits. People seemed to really appreciate the shows. I considered it an honor and a privilege to be able to perform for them.

Some of the non-show highlights of the trip:
-Going to Caserta Palace in Naples, Italy. They filmed some of the Star Wars prequels there and I was very excited to visit. You’ll see in one of the photos that I even had my own light saber!

-Walking the streets of Sicily. My favorite parts were eating at a little Italian deli (delicious pastries!) and photographing the amphitheater ruins in downtown. Sicily has been destroyed seven times by the volcano that overlooks it — Mt. Etna.

-Exploring Japan. I was struck by all of the natural beauty. Nagasaki was especially beautiful. The people were so friendly. It was fun to be considered “exotic”. Note the photo of me with the soccer team. They were especially fun.

-Discovering Guam. I had no idea it was so beautiful there. I went snorkeling and found Nemo! We had a funky fish party! It was an incredible experience. I love snorkeling and plan on doing more.

-Getting reunited with my guitar. My guitar went around more of the world than I did! It was lost by an Italian airline (note to parents) and ended up in Heathrow Airport in London! Note the photo where I am happily reunited with my guitar in the Okinawa airport.

The whole point of the trip was the kids, and I met a bunch of fantastic kids and parents. I am thankful for the opportunity and hope to be able to do it again someday. Thank you for going along on the adventure with me!


David Chicken Live Show a hit in Japan! (photos included)

Posted on: November 17th, 2012 by David Chicken No Comments

Galliont friends! The live show has been going over great with U.S. families in Japan! We’ve performed at four Navy bases and it has been a blast. So many nice families, who really appreciate the entertainment. It’s an honor to perform for them. I personally love the Japanese culture as well. We’ve been fortunate enough to get into local towns several times to experience the culture and food. And I must say, I’ve had some very unique and delicious food! Several photos are attached. Enjoy!

David Chicken starting world tour to entertain U.S. troops‘ families

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


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. David will be performing “Brusha Yo Teeth” on the tour, along with all of his interactive songs that get kids and parents up singing and dancing.

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,

Fun at Ben & Jerry's
