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!

DC Returns to the Allen Library

Posted on: July 7th, 2017 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint friends!

I hope you are having a super-fantastic summer! Ours has been very fun. Staying very busy with lots of library and event shows this time of year.

This week we returned to our old stomping ground: The Allen Public Library! This is a special place for me. We filmed the video for “Book a Trip” there, which is one of my favorites. It was nice performing for the 50th anniversary of the library, since we were there to perform 10 years ago for the 40th anniversary.

Special thanks to my friend Brian Busch for his outstanding accordion work with the show, along with Barrett Bishop, who played his bagpipes for us on stage! As always, Diane Whiting helped keep the show rolling along smoothly with the kids. Oh and we can’t forget Super Diego, who stole the show with his amazing doggy tricks!

A few photos are attached. Enjoy!

Your friend,
David

University of North Texas Article on David & Mama

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.

Dingle Burbis,
David

“Play” music video shoot a wrap!

Posted on: May 22nd, 2013 by David Chicken No Comments

Galloint friends!

I wanted to give a big THANK YOU to all of the families who came out to Allen to help with our new music video. Everyone did a fantastic job. Mama Chicken and I truly appreciate your enthusiasm and dedication to creating a great video. 

We shot the final segment for “Play” on Monday of this week. That consisted of me “riding a bike” in front of a big green screen. (It wasn’t really moving). It’s hard to pretend like you’re pedaling when you can’t use the pedals. My legs got tired! But it will look cool once my good buddies at Allen City TV work their magic. 

We also did a scene at the Joe Farmer pavilion, where the Killdares were doing a concert. We got up during intermission and performed “Play” a few times. There were several hundred kids and they really got into it. It was so amazing hearing the kids and the rest of the audience yelling out “Hey!”, “Yeah!” with the song. When I write a song like that, I’m always picturing how it will sound with a big audience. This one greatly exceeded my expectations. How exciting that was! 

I can’t wait for you to see the video. It will be ready within the next month or so. You’ll see it here first! 

Your friend,
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

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

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

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.
