Bay Area based, The Hipwaders are comprised of a paramedic, a school teacher and a school bus driver. The band has performed across the country and their music can be heard regularly on TV & radio.

"...the Beatles of the genre, the kindie kings, the one and only, mighty, mighty Hipwaders... quite simply, they are a great power pop band that just happens to play music for children. " - Rob Smith, POPDOSE

"The Hipwaders extol the virtues of reading, geometry, and the Dewey Decimal System, but their danceable New Wave-ish pop and lighthearted lyrics keep their messages fun" - ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
