bandhappy

BANDHAPPY, the first LIVE online and in-person music education service, is pleased to announce their sponsorship with the Vans Warped Tour this summer! As a sponsor, BANDHAPPY is very proud to offer a unique service for fans and bands alike on each date of this tour. BANDHAPPY is providing an official “BANDHAPPY Lesson Tent” where fans/attendees will be able to take lessons from their favorite bands/musicians on the Vans Warped Tour! Since launch, BANDHAPPY has serviced thousands of students in over 100 countries learning daily on the site by either live video chat or in-person while artists are on tour.

At the Vans Warped Tour, BANDHAPPY lessons can include anything from instrument and vocal lessons, to lessons about songwriting, marketing, image, management, gear walk-throughs, or anything else relating to the music industry. Take a trip over to www.bandhappy.com/warpedtour and check out all of the new details, as well as to vote for which artists YOU would like lessons from (and on what instrument) in each city!

All BANDHAPPY lessons will take place in the official BANDHAPPY Lesson Tent and can be pre-purchased at the link above, or via cash or credit card on day-of-show. Initially, BANDHAPPY will be offering pre-sale lessons for fans via www.bandhappy.com/warpedtour from members of Bayside, Born of Osiris, The Streetlight Manifesto, After the Burial, Vanna, iwrestledabearonce, Impending Doom, Chelsea Grin, and many more!

BANDHAPPY representatives will be on-site outside the festival speaking with fans waiting in line and taking orders for lessons. During lessons, students will be provided with practice instruments by SJC Drums, Ernie Ball, Orange Amps, Evans Drumheads, Planet Waves, Pro-Mark Drum sticks, Mapex hardware and pedals. Also taking place in the BANDHAPPY Lesson Tent will be master class meet and greets, contests, recording of lesson footage, and more! Additionally, official Vans Warped Tour ‘Pit Reporter’ Amy Willard will be taking weekly lessons at the tent and will issue updates.

BANDS!

Not only a great tool for fans attending the festival, this is a great opportunity for bands to become teachers on the tour as well. Lessons can be taught in a band’s down time every day, and while this is definitely a way for them to make additional money, it’s so much more than that! Both BANDHAPPY and Vans Warped Tour will be heavily promoting BANDHAPPY and its teachers.  There will be a vast amount of articles, interviews, blogs, posts, etc. about this service, and the bands who take part in it.  You’re already getting your name out there from being on the Vans Warped Tour, why not MAXIMIZE that?

Bands can use BANDHAPPY to book and provide online lessons to their students with our built in video chat setup, or book private, in person lessons at home or on tour!  BANDHAPPY makes this effortless and it takes the hassle out of lessons. Bands can set their own rates and schedules with the assistance of BANDHAPPY, and everything is self-contained including scheduling, payment, etc., so your info stays private and your schedule stays organized. It has never been easier to establish a dedicated network of students worldwide.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
