FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HIP TOT MUSIC FEST IS FEELING JOLLY IN A PRINCESS DRESS!
Join us for Suzi Shelton, The Jolly Pops and Santa at the Hip Tot Holiday Extravaganza!
HIP TOT MUSIC FEST’s holiday concert is happening on Sunday, December 8th at Shapeshifter Lab where The Suzi Shelton Band will make any “Tomboy in a Princess Dress” feel welcome–especially our Lady Claus. Our opening band, “” are bringing more holiday spirit to the stage with their happy tunes. Melanie Hope Greenberg will be telling us about some terrific holiday traditions with her book “Celebrations, Our Jewish Holidays”. There will be FREE crafts and face painting from KidVentrues NYC and giveaways and discounts from Seamless and Brooklyn’s own car sharing company Carpingo.
The Suzi Shelton band is truly a family production. From her daughter and friends on stage as her backup singers “The Gum Drops”, to her teenage son playing mandolin. The group has performed at such wonderful NYC venues as The Lincoln Center Tree Lighting Ceremony, Symphony Space, The Knitting Factory, Madison Square Park, and the Tribeca Film Festival to name just a few. They have also toured the country and even played The White House Easter Egg Roll! Shelton’s first CD, Simply Suzi, featured original songs about animals, dreams and dessert, and received a positive review from Children’s Music Web, Parents’ Choice and the iParenting Media Awards. Shelton was the featured artist and host of a DVD series from Gymboree Play & Music.
Plus meet Hip Tot’s very own Santa! This Santa is anything but your department store variety. Fifth-generation New Yorker Erica Goepel (that’s right, Santa’s a girl) is full of joy, enrobed in a handmade costume based on traditional St. Nicholas images so bring your camera. She has been featured in the Wall Street Journal last year and on numerous local blogs throughout NY.

About Hip Tot Music Fest
Hip Tot Music Fest is a monthly indoor music festival that takes place during the fall and winter. The shows producers, Gabby and Adam, have created an incredible community for families with live music, story time, craft activities, and giveaways. Shapeshifter Lab’s spacious venue is designed for the stroller crowd with an entrance ramp making it easy for families to roll in and out. They sell delicious paninis and juice boxes for the kids and they have beer and wine for the big people.
Hip Tot Music Fest is perfect for a child’s birthday party. Your group will have a VIP section with pizza, juice boxes, your own craft activity or face painter and, of course, you get to hang with the band!
