Band is Taking a 5,000 Mile Human Powered Concert Tour
For Immediate Release, November 1, 2007
You may not have heard of the Ginger Ninjas, but by the time the Pleasant Revolution is over, they are sure to have plenty of new fans from northern California all the way to Southern Mexico. That’s because they are embarking on what they call “The Pleasant Revolution,” a 5,000 mile human powered trip. Traveling by bike and foot, they will carry their instruments with them while biking and walking the trek from northern California to Mexico, while many photographers, journalists, and fellow road warriors also bike with them as they are there for the entire journey. There isn’t even a van of equipment: they’re carrying everything.
In a self proclaimed “quest for oversized adventure,” the Ginger Ninjas intend for this 5,000 mile adventure to take place over a four month period. They started from Nevada City, and four months from now the once in a lifetime adventure will end at the pyramids of Chiapas, Mexico. The band not only plans to play several scheduled shows on the way, but they also plan to play spontaneously from street corners to city parks.
Often times a town not aware of the trip will see a hundred bikes come into town, and hear a loud announcement about a free concert on the hillside. So far the reception has been fantastic, and news is beginning to spread ahead of The Ginger Ninjas as they make their way through California.
The Pleasant Revolution started on November 1st, and The Ginger Ninjas aren’t the only ones. The band “Shake Your Peace!” is also coming along for the long ride, and often times they look ahead so local bands can perform along side of them. The shows have been very well received, and there aren’t many people who are going to complain about a great free concert in their local town.
The Pleasant Revolution is about music, living for adventure, and doing it without using gas. Spreading the spirit of something unique and fun is a great gift, and is paying off for these young adventurers.The Pleasant Revolution will continue through February.
