ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Sippy Cups Live at The Great American Music Hall was recorded before a live audience of kids and parents at San Francisco's historic live music venue in December 2006. The Great American was alive that day, and has never looked more colorful.

This live concert is the first ever DVD from The Sippy Cups, and is a perfect way for kids and parents to experience the fun and energy of their live shows.

The Sippy Cups are the kids rock band that parents and kids love. A band founded by three dads in San Francisco, the six member rock band has gained national attention, playing gigs in 2007 at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Central Park Summerstage, SXSW, House of Blues, as well as live concerts on XM radio and Sirius satellite radio.

"Every parents favorite kid rock band and quite possibly the illegitimate offspring of the Cat in the Hat and Joey Ramone." SF Chronicle

"The Flaming Lips of the toddler set." LA Times

"The Sgt Peppers of kid music." Cookie Magazine

Alan Lipton


An excellent live document of a lively, colorful band. Filmed by by Lou Weinert and Jim Iacona and edited by Bob Sarles, all with a festive, sensitive eye. Captures the creative democracy of a group where everyone is a star performer. Flows easily over edits that could have been singers catching their breath or musicians ushering young audience volunteers offstage.

Four magic moments:

1) "The Jellyfish" - Dreamy lighting, trippy costume with swaying tentacles, rainbow ribbon twirling over the audience, Alison Faith Levy's hands on keyboard as she sings a love song to an undersea oddity.

2) "How to Build a Dog" - Mark Verlander emerging from behind his guitar to inhabit the character of a bioengineering ringmaster at a dark but kid-friendly circus, acrobat Teana David coming to flopsy, elegant life as the dog.

3) "Little Puffer" - Doug Nolan out of costume, receding into the pit to lead a kid-train in a series of beautifully lit perspective shots, a real sense of performer mingling with audience in a sea of love.

4) "Flower Tower" - Paul Godwin reeling off flower names and passing out a few bouquets' worth, Rudy Trubitt morphing from bass backup to guitar hero, Doug's massive puppet looming and swaying like an Inca sunflower.

Little animated pop-ups and sprays of Susan Verlander's trademark Sippy cartoons mix easily with the color and movement. Maybe what little kids see in their minds at a show like this.

SIPPY CUPS
WE GOT OUR SIPPY CUPS DVD. EVERYTHING WENT PERFECTLY. WE LOVE IT, IT ROCKS. CAN'T WAIT UNTIL YOU HIT THE NY AREA AGAIN, IT'S TOO FEW AND FAR BETWEEN. THANKS.

Gotta love 'em
My son has been a fan for years, since we went to our first show. My husband and I are also fans--who wouldn't be after hearing Kids Rock for Peas? But our youngest seemed indifferent, until we took her to see the show. She stood in the back, mesmerized by everything, but after we got home she started singing, “shake shake wiggle wiggle my loose tooth!” Another die-hard fan is born, and this is her new favorite DVD.

So much fun!!
This DVD almost makes you feel as though you are at a real show by The Sippy Cups. My 2-1/2 year old daughter received it for Christmas and as with all of her Sippy Cups CDs, she is now addicted to this DVD. I love it, too, and will be buying tickets for ourselves and all of our friends for the next The Sippy Cups live show in Los Angeles!
