The Grand Adventure!

Dear Friends,

In early May I will be joining 12 inspired and enthusiastic artist/revolutionaries on an 8-month North American rock and roll bicycle journey from May 2011—January 2012. I am excited to be a part of the ultra-green sustainable lifestyle movement called the "Pleasant Revolution." Imagining what it will be like to tour for 8 months on this Rock and Roll odyssey is akin to imagining a dream come true. The idea is to help change the world--through music, on bicycle, and to really enjoy yourself in the process, thus the Pleasant Revolution!

The Pleasant Revolution demonstrates that bands can tour independently, without automobile support, carrying our own equipment and gear to put on stunning, participatory musical events at existing mainstream festivals as well as our own series of Bicycle Music and Film Festivals in 20 West Coast Cities. At each show, audience members pedal our Xtracycle cargo bicycles to make the electricity for our 1200W pedal-powered sound system. The following day, audiences pedal to project the Wild and Scenic Film Festival

Our partnership with The Wild and Scenic Film Festival will offer a whole new dynamic to the tour.
Considered the largest film festival of its kind, the films combine stellar filmmaking, beautiful cinematography and first-rate storytelling to inform, inspire and ignite solutions and possibilities to restore the earth and human communities while creating a positive future for the next generation.
The world is changing rapidly and we are on a mission to influence that change for the better! All over the world minds and hearts are being opened to living and participating in a more sustainable lifestyle. And we would like to invite you to participate in making it happen!

Here are links to the tour website, the bands and their music, more info on the bike-powered sound system, tour dates, pictures, and sponsors.

Here are three links to videos of last years European Tour,
take 1 minute, 5 minutes, or 10 and have a gander.
