JANUARY 3rd – Hootenanny Josh Windmiller is taking a busload of folks from the North Bay to The Easy Leaves’ 3rd Annual Winter Formal at the Great American Music Hall! The Hootenanny has taken these buses to every show in what is turning into a very special annual tradition.
A ticket on the bus makes for a great holiday gift. Get ‘em (and find out pick-up details) here: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-easy-leaves-party-bus-3rd-annual-western-winter-formal-tickets-12939685949

On October 9th I will be taking another bus of North Bay music-lovers into the belly of the City for an incredible party.
This time it will be a journey made to enjoy the music of The Highway Poets, Royal Jelly Jive, and Marty O’Reilly & The Old Soul Orchestra. I will pick up a crew of passengers from Santa Rosa at 6:00 and Petaluma at 6:30 and show up at Slim’s in San Francisco in time for the doors to open. Drinking is allowed on the bus – you can bring your own or rely on the beers that we will provide.
These bus parties bring together some of my favorite things about the North Bay Hootenanny – new people meeting, enjoying music together, and doing something weird and unexpected. If you haven’t taken the Hootenanny bus before, you should really consider getting a ticket here:
