Holiday Gift Guide: Milkshake “Great Day” CD Review and Giveaway


About The Band

Milkshake is a band on a mission: to create great rock music for kids. Led by singer Lisa Mathews and guitarist Mikel Gehl, whose songs for grown-ups have been featured in movies and prime-time television, and whose indie rock group Love Riot garnered critical praise during its 10-year run, Milkshake has won over preschoolers without compromising songcraft, stagecraft or their authentic rock & roll spirit.

About their Latest CD…

Milkshakes brand new music CD “Great Day” is the fourth in their collection. This CD is specifically geared toward children ages 6-10 as it’s main goal is to teach kids to have fun yet it also is geared to focus on issues like  friendship, inclusion, family, self-esteem, goals, and material desires. The Songs… Shake It Up ~ Happy Place ~Statue of Me ~ You Did It! ~ Enemies ~When I’m Old ~ I Want It ~ Travel Far~ Recipe ~Dance in the Sun ~ I Love You ~ Great Day


My Thoughts…

My daughter is 17 months old and really enjoys the music of this cd. She’s a wee bit young for getting the songs yet but she knows good music when she hears it!  I wanted to add that I could listen to this CD all day long without going a little loopy, as with some other children’s cds I’ve heard! My favorite song found on this CD is “Statue of Me” because it focuses on individuality, discovering and recognizing your special talents, and making a contribution to the world around you. I couldn’t agree and praise Milkshake more for adding that specific song as well as many other great ones to this CD! Overall, I’ve really enjoyed listening to MilkShakes fourth cd and am eager to get a hold of the earlier three to catch up on this mix of magic that I’ve been missing out on!
