Fronted by songwriter, Tito Uquillas, The Hipwaders issued their first children''s music album, "The Smile Project" in 2004. The album received a Parent''s Choice Award that year.
"The Smile Project" was quickly followed up in 2005 by "The Hipwaders", the band''s official debut. The band was nominated by XM Satellite Radio as one of the best new kid''s'' music acts of 2005 and the album earned another Parent''s Choice Award for the band in 2006.
In 2007, The Hipwaders were invited to perform at the Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago.
"They played like they were in front of 50, 000 people, even though they weren''t," says Hyams, a Los Angeles record producer who persuaded Perry Farrell to add a children''s stage to Lollapalooza three years ago. "People really love them, more so than other acts we''ve had in the past...The Hipwaders have as much value as Pearl Jam. They are a tight, focused group of musicians."
