Dear Shushy Fans,
The Shushybyes Summer Dreamin’ 2010 is underway! Working together with our awesome music management company Great Knight Productions, the itinerary for the multi-city tour will be completed soon. In fact, many of our Shushy fans are responsible for the selected cities, as their calls and emails asking about when Michael and the Shushies will be visiting their cities are regarded very seriously (so please keep your emails coming if you’d like The Shushybyes to visit your city – firstname.lastname@example.org)!
But even more than your city…how would you like a live Shushybye concert featuring The Shushybyes right in your very own home? We’ll soon be unveiling a sweepstakes we’re conducting with a major national children’s media outlet where a live in-home Shushybye concert is the grand prize. Stand by for more regarding this exciting sweepstakes event! (Imagine the party you could have!!).
I have received lots of emails about a couple of recent Twitter postings of mine (http://twitter.com/Shushybyeguy) unveiling all-new Shushybye characters I’ve ‘dreamt up’ for a Shushybye movie. Working together with Phoenix Pictures - one of the most honored and respected film companies in Hollywood headed up by legendary movie producer Mike Medavoy – "Shushybye: My Newest Best Friend" is well into the scripting stage. The first (I believe) movie musical for preschoolers, it’s about a Shushy boy named P-LOW and a little girl named FRANNIE who discover the meaning of true friendship.
I would like you to meet some of the stars: P-LOW (His real name is PILLOW but he got the nickname from the famed Shushybye Doo-Wop group THE SLEEPTONES after hearing him sing), along with CHIPPER and CRANKY, WEARY, DROWSY and BUSHED, SNORE, NIGHTLIGHT and NAPPER are some of students in SHUSHYBYE SCHOOL (the teacher is MISS EVE). Then there's MOONBEAM, STARDUST and BIG MATTRESS, three of the top Dream Designers at the DREAMERY (the huge factory where Shushies make children’s dreams). MOONBEAM wears a mohawk hair-do, STARDUST is kind of a hippie who loves to hand out flowers to everyone and BIG MATTRESS is king size, but nice. Two of my favorites are PJ THE DJ who spins the Bedboard 100 hits on MOON-FM (he also emcees the nightly Pillow Park dances) and SKY BLUE, the radio station’s traffic reporter who calls the action on the busy Starways (often recommending that Shushy drivers take surface clouds to get to their destinations). I also particularly like WENDY WINKS, the head librarian of the Shushybye Central Library. Helping her run the library is her rather large family (there are 40 WINKS in all). I’ve written 20 songs for the movie, and one of my favorites is “Welcome Aboard My Dream Ship” sung by CAPTAIN JOHN YAWN as he pilots the mighty Shushybye ship with his able crew across the skies.
I look forward to keeping you updated!
SHUSHYBYE & GOODNIGHT!
