Get your groove on with Recess Monkey


Recess Monkey.

It's just a fun name for a band that has me and Buttercup singing along to every song we have ever heard from them!

Our curent obsession is their "Tabby Road" CD, which was released in July. The three-member band is made up of Seattle-area teachers with Beatle's flavor, and is a guaranteed hit for kids and adults alike.

Usually I find myself skipping past at least a few songs that aren't up to par on most CD's I listen to, but not so with Tabby Road. Each of the 17-tracks is a treasure in and of itself, ranging from pop to ballads to you just wanting to jump in and sing along.

Faves (read: I already know all the words and sing along, no matter who looks at me funny) include: Birthday Bite,SL-Double E-P Over, The Sandbox Song (Buttercup sings to that one), and Mummy Don't Allow.

The songs are about monsters, pets, and just plain-ol' fun--with (or without) the kids listening along with you.

I know you're hoping for a contest on this one, and Waldmania PR is happy to oblige.

To be considered for the random drawing, visit CDBaby and and leave me a berrie (read: comment) telling me which track gets you and your kids moving! One extra entry is available if you decide to choose one of the following:
* subscribe to my RSS feed and comment letting me know you did so.
* Blog about the contest and link to the giveaway.
* Non-bloggers can email three of their friends about the contest and CC me on the email. Girl Scout's honor that I will never bother these sweet people. I promise!
* Grab my button and place it on your sidebar, linking to Berrie Sweet Picks. (I'll check!)
* Follow me on Twitter! (nickname: berriesweetest)
Please note all entries MUST include a valid email address to be considered for the drawing!

I'll pick one name at midnight (EST) on Aug. 28 and post their name to PRIZEYWinners and on my sidebar. The winner has four days from the announcement date to contact me, or an alternate winner will be chosen.

Tabby Road is available at the Recess Monkey site for $15 and CDBaby: $15 for the CD, or $10 for the MP3. (And may I say, rock ON with the reduced MP3 price?)

Oh.. I love little dragon!!! So cute :)

These are the kind of songs you sway your head side to side while you are singing in the car! All the motorists think you are insane, and your kids think you are fabulous!

I'd love to win this for my two littlest dragon-babies!!
