Boom Booms Band at Maui Earth Day
Today was Earth Day and had a wonderful experience meeting with the members of The Boom Booms Band at University of Hawaii Maui Campus.
I was checking my Twitter Stream and David Fisher had posted that Earth Day activities were taking place at the University of Hawaii Maui campus and the Boom Booms band was there. So I got on a bus with my bicycle headed into town parked my bike on campus and walked over and found the correct room. The Boom Booms Band members shared their environmental activism roots, how the band members met in Vancouver BC. at a tree planting camp and learned about some of their explorations and sustainability support for some of the native tribes in South America and I hope you enjoy the YouTube video that’s featured on this page. The BoomBoom Band had recently played at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center and I’m sorry I missed it They’re a young inspired group and they’ve got a bright future ahead of them. Youtube The musical brotherhood of Vancouver-based band The Boom Booms began in BC’s glamorous tree-planting camps. Planting trees by day and creating and performing music by night for their tree-planting posse was a typical spring season for the childhood friends. Once the season ended, they kept the momentum going by producing their very own neighbourhood block party. The “Boom Boom Block Party” became a summer highlight for East Vancouver residents for four years and raised over $20,000 for organizations such as Environmental Youth Alliance (EYA); Contributing to Lives of Inner City Youth (CLICK); and The Music Tree, a not-for-profit foundation that is dedicated to raising awareness of ecological community projects through fundraising concerts and events. Co-founded by Aaron Ross and supported by The Boom Booms, The Music Tree is committed to “greening” the planet by inspiring people to get involved in community building and self-sustainability.
