About Emcee "MC" Andy Z

Alison Faith Levy's Big Time Tot Rock

Alison Faith Levy’s Big Time Tot Rock

Alison Faith Levy, formerly "Sippy Alison" of the beloved Bay Area band for children, The Sippy Cups, is a nationally renowned children's musician based in San Francisco. She is thrilled to be returning to Redwood City with her Big Time Tot Rock band, and can't wait to get everyone dancing and singing along with her colorful, whimsical interactive rock show for families.

Since releasing her debut solo kids album, World of Wonder, Alison has been performing all over the Bay Area and beyond, as well as teaching her own "Big Time Tot Rock" music classes for toddlers and preschoolers. She brings a freewheeling rock n' roll energy to acoustic guitar and piano tunes, and each song in her live show encourages children (and adults) to participate in all kinds of active silly ways including dancing, singing, making animal sounds, pretending, jumping, spinning and wiggling! Score one for the parents: her Big Time Tot Rock band includes members of well-known Bay Area indie bands The Orange Peels and The Corner Laughers.

The Hipwaders

The Hipwaders have had several top ten songs on XM/SIRIUS Radio including #1 songs, ”Hey Josie!” & "Educated Kid”. The Hipwaders have recorded 5 albums including a NAPPA award-winning album of original Christmas songs. Their latest release, 2011’s “The Golden State”, recently received a NAPPA Gold Award. "In the same spirit of completely wonderful, whimsical and musically gifted treats for the young set is the Bay Area-based Hipwaders, pulling off some brilliantly fun and surprisingly hip songs extolling touchstones of childlike glee including art cars and dinosaurs. With Devo influences the post-mod-rock trio lays some serious grooves and invokes the best spirits of They Might be Giants, Schoolhouse Rocks and The Beatles’ veiled odes to decadence that were so brilliant no one cared what they were about. The Hipwaders are on a great path to immortality [...] that speaks to children of all ages and can be reinterpreted on multiple cultural and spiritual levels. Indeed we all might be hip-deep soon."
