The David Chicken Show is a Great Fit for Schools

Posted on: February 11th, 2019 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint friends!

I hope this message finds you well and happy!

We had our first school show of 2019 last week at Elliot Elementary in Frisco ISD and it was tons of fun. We played for two groups of kids: Grades K-2, and grades 3-5. The show was a big hit with both groups! That’s the nice thing about having so many songs to choose from; we can create custom sets for each age range. A highlight video of the performance may be viewed here.

Kids learn about the importance of exercise, reading, and even learn some Spanish with my new song “Dinosaurio”. Book your show today!

A New Chick Has Hatched!

Posted on: February 16th, 2018 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint friends!

I hope that 2018 is starting out great for you. I’ve been on a bit of a break, while my wife Sarah and I welcomed a new addition to our family! Fiana Rose Chicken was born October 27, 2017. She is such a sweet baby – she even lets Sarah and I get long nights of sleep on occasion! Lately she has been smiling when she sees us, which is the most rewarding, magnificent thing in the world.

Her big sister Amaya Jane has been fantastic with her. She’s already working on teaching Fiana how to sing! We are very thankful to have our two little angels.

I’m gearing up for a bunch of shows this spring! Please check them all out here.

I hope to see you soon!

Your friend,

I hope this finds you and your family well. I thought I’d share one of my favorite highlights from my DVDs: A segment called “Interpretive Dance” from Book a Trip with David Chicken. Look closely and you’ll even see some amazing doggie tricks from Super Joanie!

Keep in mind the DVDs are for sale online at the Chicken Store. Enjoy!

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

Spring Shows are Beginning!

Posted on: March 18th, 2016 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint friends!

Happy spring! We kicked off spring break week with a fun show for our friends at Bookmark Library at NorthPark Center. A great time was had by all, as we did a string of David Chicken hits. I even busted out one of my very first songs, “Monkey With a Big Brown Drum”, which was tons of fun! Parents and kids alike enjoyed helping to create the music.

Please keep our show in mind for upcoming spring and summer festivals. Call toll-free 866-FUN-SONG or email through this website.

The Newest Chicken: Amaya Jane!

Posted on: January 27th, 2016 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint friends!

I hope you are having a great 2016 so far! The year has been magical for me. My wife Sarah and I welcomed our little girl, Amaya Jane Chicken, to the world on October 29. She has brought us so much joy ever since! Amaya Jane was named after my mama, Mary Jane McMahon, which means so much to me. Mama Chicken shines on in her.

My not-so-secret hope is that one day Amaya Jane will want to be part of the show! Who knows?

In the meantime, we have plenty of fun shows coming up! This is a great time to book your Summer Reading Program shows. Just contact us through the website or call toll-free 866-FUN-SONG.

Happy 2016!

Your friend,

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

Posted on: April 22nd, 2015 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint Friends!

My alma mater, the University of North Texas, recently ran an article on me and Mama Chicken! I was very honored to be featured by the North Texan. Another honor was being able to convey how pivotal Mama was to the show, and to who I am today. I miss her very much every day.

I hope you enjoy the article. You can read the full entry here.

Be sure to catch one of my many live performances this weekend for the cities of Euless and Mesquite, Texas. The shows are listed 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!

Adventures in Storybook Land

Posted on: July 29th, 2013 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint friends!

 
What an amazing time I had at Storybook Land in Aberdeen, South Dakota this past weekend! I put on 3 shows and all were a blast! So many fun and nice people in Aberdeen, and they really enjoyed being a part of the shows. One of my favorite parts was collaborating with the Storybook Land Theater Group. They are a very talented group and it was so much fun performing with them! At our last big show, in the castle, we did some of my songs and some of their songs. I hope to be able to perform with them again. 
 
If you’re ever in South Dakota, be sure to visit Storybook Land. And even if you’re just in the region, it’s worth a trip. It is truly one of the most magical places I’ve ever visited. Best of all it’s FREE for the whole family! The area around the park is just beautiful, with camping for tents or RVs. You can even rent a cabin! There are biking trails all around the park that lead to viewing areas for animals like buffalo, deer, CHICKENS, ground hogs and more. 
 
I will definitely be doing back! 
 
Your friend,
David

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!

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

“Cookie Time” video & music single debut!

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

 

 

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
