Mr. Singer & the Sharp Cookies to Perform Family Halloween Show
Chicago's most energetic band that rocks for kids, the award-winning Mr. Singer & the Sharp Cookies, goes all out for the season of ghosts and goblins with their fourth album, Happy Haunted Halloween. To celebrate the album's release, Mr. Singer & the Sharp Cookies will perform a family Halloween show at 12:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 28 at Beat Kitchen, 2100 W. Belmont Ave., Chicago, IL.
With plenty of treats and maybe a few tricks up its sleeve,this special Halloween concert will include songs that celebrate chocolate, ghost stories, mysteries, friendship, facing fears, bonfires, dance parties, and haunted houses. Families can expect a FUN performance where costumes are welcome, dancing is likely, and a spooktacular time will be had by all. This will be a chance for parents to experience a rock show with their kids in one of Chicago's coolest venues, with professional staging, lighting, drinks, and good food.
Mr. Singer & the Sharp Cookies are the husband-and-wife team of Neil and Kerry Firstenleit ("Mr. Singer" and "Kerry Appleberry"), along with dynamo drummer Michael Massett ("Marius Mustard") and Jake Samson on bass. The band's rocking, electric sound has been described as "like June & Johnny Cash playing the Clash while riding unicycles through the zoo!"
Both onstage and in the studio, Mr. Singer and the Sharp Cookies specialize in fresh, positive, high-energy music at kid-friendly volumes, sneaking a little mischief, a little sweetness, and a lot of fun into their clever originals. Happy Haunted Halloween salutes the ancient concept that one of the most fun things about being a kid in October is the anticipation of getting your socks scared off of you.
Notes Neil Firstenleit, "Halloween is my favorite holiday, and inspiration always strikes around that time. Each year for the past fifteen years or so, I've written Halloween songs for kids. Happy Haunted Halloween comprises the fourteen best songs of the collection; it's a fun album you could play on your porch as kids come trick-or-treating, at Halloween parties, or in the car anytime you want to get psyched for Halloween. It was a blast recording this album, especially experimenting with eerie sounds and song arrangements!"
Happy Haunted Halloween will be released on October 5 and will be available at all digital retailers, including iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, CDBaby, and more.
