Splash 'N Boots Nominated for Children's Group of the Year (Let's Celebrate with a Giveaway!)

I was delighted earlier this year to be introduced to the husband and wife music duo, Splash 'N Boots, when I reviewed their latest DVD.  We really enjoyed their infectious, energetic & funny songs and skits.

We are certainly not the only ones to enjoy them, as Splash 'N Boots was voted Children's Group of the Year in the 2007 Independent Music Awards, and they have been nominated again for the 2012 award. They now need fan votes to reclaim the title! Voting is open until March 23, at To register to vote, you just need to enter your name and email address, then choose the category from the list provided.  Head on over to show them your support!

Interested in getting to know this dynamic duo a little better? I was honoured to be able to ask them some questions, and to share their answers with you. Read on!

> - How did you come up with the name Splash 'N Boots?One of our first shows ever was at the Kingston Buskers Festival. It poured rain, so Splash 'N Boots was born!

> - Do you have a favourite song to perform? Is there one in particular that seems to get the kids in the audience jumping?
One of our current favourites is "For the Love of Dance." It gets everyone up on their feet and gives them an opportunity to show off their best dance moves!

> - Where did you get the idea come to fan-source your latest album? How have you found that experience?
We have been taking song suggestions for a while and performing them in our kitchen as "Kitchen Jams".  We were trying to think of a way to get all of our fans involved, so we came up with the album idea. So far it has been amazing seeing what people come up with- we have a great list of song titles and have been getting daily suggestions!

> - You have your sweet doggie, Lily. does she provide inspiration for your songs?
Yes! Lily provides daily inspiration and laughs. In our new album there is even a song called "Lily Vanilli"

> - Can you share a couple of favourite memories from your tours? Is there somewhere you'd like to perform where you haven't yet?
We loved performing in Australia with the Wiggles Characters- meeting Wags and Dorothy was pretty great (as was learning to drive on the wrong side of the road). Once we were hired to perform for the Royal Family in Bahrain which was also a super amazing adventure. Last year we found ourselves navigating through the streets of Venice with a guitar in one hand and a map in the other.....
We love performing all across Canada but haven't made it to Newfoundland yet, which we hope to someday!! 

To celebrate their nomination for Children's Group of the Year, Splash 'N Boots are giving away a copy of their latest CD, "Back in Yellow," to one lucky Raising My Boys reader. This CD contains the song "For the Love of Dance" mentioned above, plus 12 other tracks. You can enter this giveaway via the Rafflecopter widget below.
