I am super-excited because I have yet another giveaway, and it’s an excellent prize for somebody: a family 4-pack of tickets to see The Laurie Berkner Band!
They’re playing at Proctors on Saturday, January 7th at 11 am, and tickets are $25 to $35.
If you don’t know Laurie Berkner already, well: she’s awesome. She’s my favorite kid-friendly musician by far. I’ve even mentioned her in passing a few times, like when I talked about a favorite lullabye with J. Maybe you’ve seen her on Nick, Jr. We haven’t: we don’t have cable.
But I totally agreed when People Magazine called her “The queen of kids’ music” and when Time Magazine said she was “a kind of sippy-cup Sheryl Crow.” Okay, I actually didn’t read either of those things at the time, but if I’d seen the articles in the magazines, I totally would have read them, because I am a fan. So when I read these lovely quotes from the nice lady who was kind enough to pass along the tickets, I said, “Heck, yeah!” And I’ll add my own endorsement: I have been known to listen and sing along to Laurie Berkner when absolutely no children are present! I think she’s awesome.
So, here’s the deal: this time, we’re sharing the giveaway with KidsOutAndAbout.com, which means that we’ll take entries from both sites, pool them together, and randomly pick one winner of the 4-pack of tickets.
To enter, comment below and tell me your favorite song to sing with kids and why. It doesn’t have to be a Laurie Berkner song, just any song and why (so your fellow readers might get ideas for new music). You’ll need to comment by Saturday, December 17th at 11:59 pm. I’ll announce the winner on Monday the 19th.
You can double your chances of winning by entering over at KidsOutAndAbout.com as well. Follow the instructions there (she always asks for contact info. in case she needs to mail a prize, but she won’t use it for anything else). There’s also a spot on that page where you can enter your email address for the free weekly newsletter that I help write, if you haven’t done so already.
Hooray! I know we’re just coming off of the Disney on Ice Giveaway, but this one was too good to pass up.
Good luck everyone!
