Rock 'n' roll for kids comes with a cherry on top from the Grammy-nominated Milkshake Band, headed to the Gallo Center for the Arts to play a show next weekend.
Influenced, according to its website, by everyone from Rodgers and Hammerstein to John Lennon and Paul McCartney to The White Stripes, the Milkshake Band has been creating music for the preschool and elementary school set for the past decade. The group's songs have been featured on PBS Kids and Discovery Kids television shows.
The band's CDs include "Happy Songs," "Bottle of Sunshine," "Play," "Screen Play" and "Great Day," which was nominated for 2010 Grammy Award for best musical album for children. Its latest CD, "Got a Minute?" was just released in March and features songs that are each just two minutes long and attempt to appeal to children from toddler to 'tween.
