They were great fun. Greaat music had the kids inviolved and dancing. There was juggling, acrobatics, lots of confetti (kids love confetti), we left singing the songs. I seriously recommend them. Too many grumpy adults in the audience who didn't...continued

the sippy cups were fine but the music together show before the main event was geared to a very young audience. appropriate age groups should be stated on the show description. venue was great.

“Every parent’s favorite kid rock band and quite possibly the illegitimate offspring of The Cat in the Hat and Joey Ramone.” -San Francisco Chronicle

Description

A high-energy rock and roll experience for families! Imagine a show where Blue Man Group meets the Flaming Lips. The Sippy Cups were born in 2004 at a community fundraiser for a playground in a coastal town just south of San Francisco. Early childhood music teacher and lead singer Paul Godwin invited two other neighborhood dads – guitarist Mark Verlander and juggler Doug Nolan – to help raise the spirit for the park. They found themselves morphing Nirvana’s disillusioned tirade ‘Smells like Teen Spirit’ and Syd Barrett’s ‘Bike’ into a hilarious rallying cry for a freewheeling tricycle playground mash-up. The concept caught on quickly with sold-out shows at local clubs and enthusiastic press coverage. Parents as well as their kids can go nuts enjoying the Sippy Cups playing their distinct brand of real rock and roll!
