Melita Doostan and Rudy Trubitt host this morning’s edition of the Patchwork Series of kids’ shows, featuring rockin' hip-shakers from the Hipwaders and irresistibly hummable tunes from Octopretzel.
A California trio specializing in kid-pleasing power pop anthems full of catchy tunes and beautiful vocal harmonies, the Hipwaders are one of the coolest "kindie rock" bands in town. Tito Uquillas (guitar, keyboards), DJ Kinville (bass), and Nick Baca (drums) honed their chops performing at the Jelly Belly Candy Factory in Fairfield before going on to play other venues and release a succession of albums, winning throngs of adoring fans (young and old) and numerous Parents' Choice, Children's Music Web, and National Parenting Publications awards—they were even invited to perform at Chicago's Lollapalooza Festival in 2007.
In a show as exuberant as their whimsical name, Octopretzel returns to the Freight stage to share exciting new material! The band creates engaging music, inspiring curiosity, wonder, and appreciation for the world we live in. Their skilled musicianship and magical way with children guarantees a dance-able, sing-able and super fun experience for the whole family.
