Tom Chapin and Friends Ticket Giveaway!

I’m very excited to offer a giveaway for tickets to see one of my favorite music makers for little kids, Tom Chapin!

Bravo Tom Chapin56

I’ve actually seen Tom Chapin in concert, and he sings a really great show: lovely songs and boisterous ones, too, and plenty of opportunities for audience participation, singing and gesturing along with the music. I think my favorite Tom Chapin song is This Pretty Planet.He manages to entertain kids without being grating on parents’ nerves, and his show really feels like a beginner rock concert. Or it did when we went. Very fun!

Tom Chapin and Friends will be at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall for one performance only, at 3 pm on Sunday, February 9, 2014. The giveaway is a Family 4-pack of tickets for the show. To enter, please comment (one time only) and tell us about at least one of your favorite songs to sing with the kids by this Friday 1/31 at noon. The song doesn’t have to be a Tom Chapin song; it doesn’t even have to be a kids’ song or exactly a kid-appropriate song. In fact, at our house we’ve been singing a lot of Kacey Musgraves’ Follow Your Arrow. But I digress. The point is, I’m going to choose a winner using, so you don’t have to offer up an impressive comment. But I know from long (and tragic, bitter) experience that giveaways are the rare posts when people are motivated enough to actually comment (posts in which I feel particularly sorry for myself and the one about an obscure song from my elementary school days are close runners-up). So if you’re actually commenting, might as well share something so that I can have a little imaginary you in mind for next time I’m writing something. If you don’t mind.

Good luck, everyone, and thanks to the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall for offering up the tickets.

    This week has been the yo-gabba-gabba theme song. Last week was more of the same. Tom Chaplin, deliver me from toddler theme songs 🙂

    We like to sing Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO. It’s our goofy time song. My kids dance to it, too.

    We are loving twirling and swirling to Demi Lovato’s Let it Go. It makes some of the magic of the movie continue for us.

    I have been reading your blog for a while. Thanks for sharing a window into the good, bad and ugly times that we can all so relate to. My favorite was your blog post about the stages of a birthday party. SO CLASSIC!!!!
