Recycle Fashion Show

Posted on: October 26th, 2015 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint friends!

Happy Halloween week! I was recently fortunate enough to be a part of an event that felt like Halloween. The Recycle Fashion Show, produced by Keep Mesquite Beautiful, was tons of fun. What a showcase of talent and creativity! I performed “Recycle Bin” to open the show, then played a full show after the contestants had strutted their stuff on the catwalk. Every costume was created from recycled/reclaimed materials. In my opinion each of them was a winner! It truly was too hard to choose just one as the best. Great job everyone!

I hope you have a safe and happy Halloween!

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
