Open Thank You To Time Out NY Kids!

TONY.bestof.hiptotDear Time Out NY Kids,

We want to thank you for nominating Hip Tot for Best Place to See a Family Concert. This is incredible! We are just a little mom and pop biz, doing this completely on our own, up against some serious big guys. Wow!!! Thank you so much for putting us at the same level as these other incredible music concerts.
Here I am working from my apartment because we can’t afford an office, up against the guys we look up to most: Carnegie Kids, Jewish Museum, Madison Square Kids and Symphony Space! Talk about an ego boost…
When we came up with the idea for the Hip Tot Music Fest concert series it was basically an effort to take what I used to do at the block parties by my store and recreate them indoors for an audience of families. We wanted to give families a full concert they could enjoy together at a low price (our tickets are certainly the least expensive of the nominees mentioned, aside from the free series at Madison Square Park). We did this with no financial backing, no staff, no office. Just a couple of struggling single parents, trying to make a meager living by giving music to everyone. Thank you for giving us the confidence we need to keep going forward.
