September Smarty Giveaway: A Free Performance from Big Bang Boom!








By Guest Blogger Lori Redding

Kids across the Triad have discovered a great band – Big Bang Boom. The band has become a popular addition to birthday parties, educational outings and all things kid-related. Their high energy and easy to learn lyrics are a mainstay in my CD player. I’ve even caught myself listening to them when the kids aren’t in the car. If you have somehow missed hearing Big Bang Boom, be sure to check out Rachel’s original blog about them here.

At our house Big Bang Boom has become part of the family. When my son is sad he likes to listen to “Everything is Gonna Be Alright.” For excited times we prefer “Jump Around." At dinner we’ve all learned the lesson that “you can’t have your ice cream until you eat your veggies.” When we pretend to play the guitar we’re being Chuck, and if we’re singing then we must be Steve. At my son’s school a group of friends like to take turns being Chuck or Steve and even Eddie – the drummer.

Over the next 9 days, you have a chance of winning a BBB performance for yourself! How excited would your children be to have this awesome band in their own backyard, at their birthday party, or at their school? Here is all you have to do to enter…

We had an idea to try to get BBB a performance spot on one of our favorite kids’ channels, Noggin. All you have to do is click on this link www.noggin.com/parents/faq.php#contact and type a message to Noggin asking them to consider utilizing Chuck and Steve’s talents. You can tell Noggin why you and your children enjoy the band, why they would be a great fit for Noggin, or maybe mention specific times you have heard them play. If you have yet to attend a concert by Big Bang Boom, be sure to click here and listen to a few songs before sending your letter. (Just click on the picture of the ice cream cone CD on the website to see the list of songs and preview them.)

But before you send your email to Noggin, be sure to copy your letter from their form email and also send it to Chuck at chuckfolds@yahoo.com along with your name and phone number. This email to Chuck is your entry into our giveaway.

Once our 9 days are up, Chuck will randomly choose one email as the winner. We will contact you to get a photo of your family and announce you as our winner on TSP.

If you’ve ever caught yourself singing Big Bang Boom's lyrics in your head halfway through the work day you know how good these guys are. And, if you’ve witnessed two dozen kids jumping up and down upon command at one of their concerts you know how entertaining they can be. With your help we can show Big Bang Boom to the rest of the country. You’ll be able to say you knew Big Bang Boom back when!

We have never seen BBB play in a private setting, but have seen them at the Greensboro Childrens Museum and I can honestly say that my children had a ball. I do think they deserve all the hype they can get!!!!

What a great idea for a contest! I have been meaning to take the time to write to Noggin about BBB, but just hadn't done it yet. It's done now! Thanks TSP!
