When the New Year begins and the bus staff returns to the bus, it is a kind of a celebration. The bus exists as our home, the bus exists as our place of work and the people at the bus exist as our friends, so the return in the parking lot in Burbank served as a time of celebration. It was quickly back to work though for us. One of the reasons for this celebration is due to that the fact that the start of the New Year and the end of the break from the previous year is when new technology gets installed on the bus.
This is all worth noting but it is not nothing to note that it is a few weeks into the New Year and there have been no signs of activity on the blog. There is a reason for this. We got our selves a new toy to play with, though I believe it would perhaps be two toys.
The first being the Newtek Tricaster and the partner in its crime being the satellite dish on the bus powered by Todo Cast. With the combination of these two technologies, I may present to everyone a new and exciting facet of the Lennon Bus.
On this site, we are going to be showing of live broadcast of concerts that the bus does, Lennonbus Live sessions and many other things. We got the chance to break in the Tricaster at NAMM with a Lennonbus live session, concerts at the Wanna Play stage and an amazing live concert headlined by Bootsy Collins.

This is our first foray into the field of live broadcast. Where it will go from here, we can only assume good places. With the bus having a history of doing Warped Tour, SXSW and other festivals, we really have the chance to crank out some fab live footage from the bus.
As we work on what could be the next Lennonbus Live video, go to the site and watch any of the videos that are archived on the site right now.
