Lots of shows coming up!

Posted on: February 3rd, 2015 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint friends!

We had a super fun show today at Happy House in Red Oak, Texas. It got me excited about all the shows that are coming this spring and summer. I’ve included a few photos from today’s event, featuring the one-and-only Super Joanie! Be sure to check out some of her amazing tricks here!

This is a great time to book school and library shows. We do a lot of summer reading program shows around the state. My song “Book a Trip” is a natural fit!

Book your show today!

Dingle Burbis,

On the road again!

Posted on: June 18th, 2013 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint Friends!

Come kick off summer right this Tuesday at the Rowlett Community Center. It’ll be a FREE show and Mama Chicken and Super Chachie will be there! 
 
Then we’ll be heading down to San Antonio for a show with Keep America Beautiful on Wednesday. Our “Recycle Bin” song is a great fit with their events. 
 
And on July 27 I’ll be performing at Storybook Land in South Dakota! I’ve never been before and I’m very anxious to perform there. Looks like an amazing place. I’m sure “Book a Trip” will go over well!
 
Happy summer!

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

 

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 Rockin’ US Navy Bases in Europe

Posted on: November 8th, 2012 by David Chicken No Comments

The David Chicken live show has been a huge success in Italy and Spain, bringing homemade American music to families stationed abroad. “This has been an amazing experience so far” said David. “To bring our music to American families overseas and have them react to it so well is very rewarding. This is truly an honor.” David will be bringing the Scakle-riffic fun to more U.S. families abroad over the rest of November. Stay tuned for more photos and postings.
