Milkshake Duo

  • About the Artist:

    Lisa Mathews and Mikel Gehl are the founding members of The Grammy-nominated Milkshake Band. The group has released five award-winning CDs, a Parent’s Choice Silver Award winning DVD Screen Play, and has had music videos on Nick Jr., PBS KIDS and the Emmy-winning cartoon ToddsWorld. Their fourth CD, Great Day, was nominated for a Grammy for “Best Musical Recording for Children” in 2010. Singer-songwriter Lisa Mathews is also host of Young At Heart, the popular family-friendly radio show on 89.7 WTMD, and works as a teaching artist in schools through Wolf Trap and Young Audiences of Maryland.

    The Milkshake Duo’s show is an interactive and inspiring performance that encourages children to “be a part of the band,” and join in the music-making. Children participate through body movement and voice. Creative expression is encouraged with every song, as young children interpret different styles of music and respond to singing games, which introduce beat, tempo, and rhythm.
