MISSION STATEMENT – CALLING ALL DADS!
“We will be Happy Dads, we will be Jolly Pops.”
~ Founder Billy Hartong to his wife Sarah one evening
The Jolly Pops are a children’s music and entertainment group from Chanhassen, MN. Our aim is to bring together artistic fathers from near and far to create exciting, highly engaging and educational concerts for the whole family.
Maybe you’re a Dad who put away his clarinet 15 years ago. Maybe you’re a Dad who loves to play the bass guitar in his free time. Maybe you’re a Dad who works in film, animation or costume design. You might even be a Dad who loves to dance, act, tell jokes or do magic tricks. Whatever it might be, we want to hear from you and find a way for you to get involved.
At its core, a Jolly Pops show is a music concert drawing from original compositions and a catalog of kids’ standards. But we foresee a day when it will be that and much more — a truly all-encompassing show by Dads and for the kids. And to do that, we need your help. Please reach out to us. Hope to hear from you soon.
