The Jimmies Rocked Tribeca

March 10, 2009 Katja Presnal

The Jimmies rocked the 92YTribeca on Sunday! 92YTribeca is an arts and entertainment venue located on 200 Husdon Street, NYC, and The Jimmies were performing part of 92YTribeca’s B.Y.O.K. series.

The concert was at 11 AM, and I think due the daylight savings time it felt even earlier than that. Well, an hour earlier. I had hard time getting kids up the bed on time, it’s over an hour drive from where we live, but we made it. We all were happy that we made it on time, and saw The Jimmies. The Jimmies is now The Best Band Of All Times according to my three children.

My kids (who are 6, 7 and almost 9 years old) were pretty much double the age of the other kids in the audience, but The Jimmies isn’t just for tots, their songs are a collection of different music styles, from reggae to rap and from country to pop, and I can almost guarantee even every parent can pick a song they like to listen (even when the kids are not around).

I loved how the 92YTribeca was dressed up for a kids’ concert.


… and how The Jimmies let the kids be part of the band
with these home-made maracas.

After the concert we had an opportunity to talk to the band, and I am so impressed how the band members took time to answer all of my kids’ questions, and play over and over again with my kids with The Jimmies personalized Whoopie Cushions and the bubble machine. Little did they know that my kids had never owned a whoopie cushion before and it was like the best thing since spreadable chocolate and my two youngest ones just wouldn’t let the band members alone after getting such an amazing gift from them. The lead singer Ashley is so nice, perfect with kids, and I am a fan of The Jimmies for life, just from speaking to her wonderfulness.

After the concert we met Jyl of Mom It Forward, who was in town for the weekend. We had brunch the Triceba way, at the Bubby’s, and we loved seeing pictures of Jyl’s two children, who are around the same age as Kristian and Isabella, and we were already planning on a family meet-up in Park City Mountain Resort in Utah later this year. I couldn’t have planned a fun Sunday with kids and friends any better! Only one bad thing… now my kids have been bugging me that they Have To join twitter, because that’s where Jyl (@Jyl_momIF) and Ashley (@pluckypea) are too!

  2. What cute pics. Looks like you had a great time. I look forward to meeting the entire fam on the mountain at Park City Mountain Resort!

  3. Your kids are so cute!!!! I love that they want to join twitter. Maybe we’ll have to come up with a kids night out on twitter just so the kiddos can talk. I know Gaby would love it for sure.

    Please give them all hugs and kisses for me and tell them I can’t wait to meet them on the mountain in Park City this winter. My kids were beyond impressed that you had bears at your house in Colorado!

    Thanks, Katja!
