Live

Life Like a Dream

​My name is Blaine Kosek, I am a teacher, singer songwriter, author and poet.  I started my musical career in the late 1990's playing in a band called Parade Of Fools.  Parade of Fools was very successful band that played shows mainly throughout the Chicagoland area but also across the United States in cities like Omaha, NE, Denver, CO, Tempe, AZ, and Milwaukee, WI.  We also recorded 3 studio albums, Tale of Minds, Uninspired and The Real World.


In 2003 I started my teaching career as a physical education teacher for Chicago Public Schools.  Currently, I am still teaching.


I have always had a passion for writing music, lyrics and poetry but I never thought about writing a book until recently when I came up for the idea A Trip To The Gym!  A Trip To The Gym! has been a very successful book thus far and is currently available on amazon.com.

This book has been read at bedtime every night this past week in my house. The kids never get tired of it. The author very slyly incorporates the importance of exercise and getting your body moving while keeping the story interesting for kids. Great rhyming too!!
