You Are Here: Gulf Shores, AL

Gulf Shores, AL - Hang Out Music Festival 2013

May 17. 18 & 19th 2013

Is it that birds go north for the summer and south for the winter?
We disobeyed the birds and went south for the summer.
The summer’s start took us to the white sand beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama.
Warm ocean breeze filled the rooms of the bus as artists came by to record and interview.
We sat in this pattern alongside Groove Shark for the week.

THe Photos:

We took some photos wearing our new True Religion Jeans on the beach. There is always time for photo ops, y’know?

You Are Here: Owensboro, KY

Howdy!
The weather is so great in Kentucky! I was expecting humidity & terrible skies but we only had a glimpse of rain in the evening after a day of sunshine. Also, Johnny Depp was born in Owensboro & it is also the BBQ Capital of the world (l am the vegan, so I had to sit that out…)
On May 23rd, we stopped in Owensboro, Kentucky for a day of tours of the public. Along with with NAMM and the Owensboro Music Center, the bus stayed open for anyone to come by, see what the mission is about, learn a bit about John and see some work students of the past have done. Tents were set up outside for anyone to come by, take a photo in the Lennonbus Photo-booth and jam out in the tents.

Video:
Gordy from NAMM spend the day with us as well and sat down on the bus for an interview about NAMM and why music education is vital.
