Happy New Year from The Chickens!

Posted on: January 10th, 2019 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint friends!

I hope the holiday season treated you well. We had a great time visiting family (and seeing some snow!) and savoring every special moment. I hope you and your family have a wonderful 2019.

Hopefully I’ll be seeing you at some of my upcoming concerts! We’re starting to book up so many new dates will be posted soon.

Your friend,
David

 

Summer Shows in Full Swing!

Posted on: July 1st, 2016 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint friends!

Happy summer! I hope yours is getting off to a fantastic start. Mine has been very busy! Lots of library and school shows this time of year. Super Diego has been doing a great job with his doggy tricks. I am so thankful that Super Joanie was able to help train him. It really was a turning point. Since then Super Diego has gone on to entertain thousands of kids, and he’s getting better with each show!

My good friends Diane Whiting and Brian Busch have been joining me at the shows. Diane helps with the kids on stage and leads the audience through hand signs on “Under the Willow Tree”, just like Mama Chicken used to do. Brian plays his accordion at the shows and wow, it adds a lot! Who knew an accordion would fit so well with my songs? I sure didn’t! I am very thankful to have Brian, Diane and Super Diego at the shows to help make them better. I hope you can catch one soon! Check here for a list of upcoming events.

Don’t forget to book now for fall and winter events! Call toll-free 866-FUN-SONG (866-386-7664) or email info@davidchicken.com

Mama Chicken’s Kitchen

Posted on: March 10th, 2015 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint friends!

Today I’d like to announce a very special new project: A charity called “Mama Chicken’s Kitchen“. Mama Chicken – Jane McMahon – cared deeply about the less fortunate people among us. While thinking of a way to honor her, we decided to start this organization with a singular goal: getting food and supplies directly to homeless people. We will start in Dallas and hopefully it will grow.

Over the past several months I have been taking food and supplies to people downtown. They are so appreciative and need it so badly. My wife Sarah and I will start going downtown as often as possible – every time we have donations to deliver – and give them directly to the homeless people. 100% of everything donated will go directly to the homeless.

Items may be dropped off at any David Chicken show, or you can make donations online. Please visit the new website for more information.

I love you Mama.

Galloint friends! It’s Spring Break and there will be a super-fun show this Wednesday, 10:30 am, at NorthPark Center in Dallas. As usual the show will be for our friends at Bookmarks Library. We’ll be right down the hall from them in the main court by the big orange sculpture. I hope to see you there!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Galloint friends!

I hope that you have a great Thanksgiving! We are going to be having some of Mama Chicken’s famous stuffing during our meal today. If you’d like to try some too, the recipe is available here!

We will be performing this Saturday at NorthPark Center with our friends at Bookmarks Library. 2pm. Hope to see you then!

Love.
David

Halloween season is here!

Posted on: October 23rd, 2014 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint friends,

I hope you’re having a great Halloween season. Things have been hard for me with the passing of Mama Chicken. She loved our shows and truly loved performing. Every show I do will be with her memory foremost in my mind.

She very much wanted the show to go on, and so it does. Super Joanie and myself — along with my wife Sarah Chicken — have several fun Halloween-themed shows coming up. One is in the Houston area and the other is in Carrollton, Texas. You can view info on each one here.

Hope to see you at a show. Have a safe and happy Hallowen!

-David

The Saddest Day

Posted on: August 14th, 2014 by David Chicken No Comments

Hello Friends,

I write you today with the heaviest of hearts. My beloved Mama Chicken passed away this week. She had been fighting lung cancer since December. Mama passed peacefully, with her hand in mine, as I told her I loved her.

She was such a strong and loving person. Despite having many physical ailments, including cancer most recently, she was always up performing at our shows, making children smile. She was singing and rapping as recently as April at NorthPark Center.

Mama’s name away from the stage was Jane McMahon. I play music because of her. She saw that I loved music and art at an early age, and she cultivated those talents by taking me to many, many live musical performances. She arranged painting lessons at age 5. Guitar lessons at age 13. Thank you Mama for giving me the gift of music.

Mama will continue to inspire and guide me through life. She lives on in my heart, and in the hearts of the many who loved her. I know that she now has the best front-row seats for all of my performances.

There will be a Memorial service for Jane McMahon this Saturday at 10:30 am. It will be a celebration of her life, and appropriate for children. More info here.

I love you Mama,
David

Mama Chicken’s Recipes for Thanksgiving

Posted on: November 28th, 2013 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint friends!

I hope you are having a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am thankful for Mama Chicken and for each and every child (and adult) who enjoys our music. 

For some delicious holiday recipes, sure to check out Mama Chicken’s recipes page here. The second listing is for her Superstar Stuffing, which is amazing! It’s my favorite. 

On a related note, we performed “Mama Chicken’s Kitchen” on Wednesday at NorthPark Center and it was a big hit as always. It occurred to me during the song how appropriate it is for Thanksgiving, since Mama is rapping about her amazing turkey and pumpkin pie! Today is a great day to watch the video and get ready for a Thanksgiving feast! You can watch it here

Also attached are a few photos from our show for BookMarks Library at NorthPark on Wed. We’ll be performing there again this Saturday, November 30 at 2pm. See you there! 

Happy Thanksgiving! 
-David

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

Read for the fun of it!

Posted on: August 21st, 2012 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint! We had a fantastic show for the Grand Prairie Public Library on Sunday, at the beautiful Uptown Theater. This event was honoring the kids who met their summer reading goals. I’m very proud of each of them, along with all of the kids who read books this summer! Our song “Book a Trip” went over very well, and Super Chachie stole the show with an amazing reading trick. Keep on reading!

Super Chachie steals the show!

We all did the robot dance to “Robotial Dog”.

After singing we did a lot of signing!

New songs!

Posted on: August 10th, 2012 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint! This week was a fun one for me. I spent several days at Nomad studio, mixing three new David Chicken songs. Both “Imagination Station” and “Funky Fish Party” were recorded and mixed there. I work with an audio genius named JT Longoria. He is amazing at taking my rough mixes and making them blossom into well-mixed songs. It’s my favorite part of the process — hearing the songs come to life. These are usually tunes that I’ve worked on for several years, so it’s really neat hearing them come together. I go in there with all of these tracks (usually 30-40 individual recorded tracks) and JT brings them to life as one cohesive song.

The songs we mixed were “Cookie Time”, “Play”, and “Chicken Rambler”. We’ll be shooting a video for “Cookie Time” at the Ben & Jerry’s in McKinney on August 26. If anyone is interested in being in the video, just let me know! We’ll be shooting it with our Emmy-winning friends at Allen City TV. We may shoot a video for “Play” as well in the coming months. Both songs are high energy and are sure to entertain DC fans! I plan to start using all three songs in our live shows in the coming months. So keep your ears open!

Fun stuff

Posted on: August 5th, 2012 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint friends! We’ve had a bunch of great shows recently. Our show yesterday at the Parks Mall in Arlington was a lot of fun. I especially enjoyed performing there because I grew up going to that mall (well, NorthPark too for that matter). It’s neat to go back to places like that and be the entertainment. We had a lot of families up singing and dancing.

My favorite “growing up” place to visit was Leslie A. Stemmons, where I went to elementary school in Oak Cliff. We performed there several years ago. That was especially fun because two of my teachers were still there and they got a kick out of the show. I’ve added a photo of Mrs. Zyglewyz and me when we performed there. I was so happy that she remembered me!

Galloint friends!

I’m so excited to be premiering our new website! We’ve been working on the design, artwork, photography and programming for nearly a year. I wanted to make sure that it had all the fun of the original site. Some of the content of the original has been preserved — primarily the content of the Fun Club.

I’d like to thank Jason Gonzalez for the awesome programming! Also, Glenn Hadsall for the Flash work, which makes the guitar strummable. (More tricks will be added to the guitar soon, so keep checking back). Glenn also contributed some beautiful photography. I’d also like to thank Lindy Franklin for the super duper photography that you see in the top banner sections.

Enjoy! More blog entries will be posted soon, along with more surprises!

Dingle Burbis,
David
