Suwannee Hulaween!

2014 Suwannee Hulaween

I can’t believe I get to type these words but I’ll finally be making my way to the Southeast’s premiere festival spot, Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park!! And not only that but it’s for possibly their biggest production to date, String Cheese Incident’s Suwannee Hulaween!!  7 sets of SCI, plus Big Gigantic, Thievery Corporation, the New Deal, Beats Antique, Emancipator, Shpongle, and more?! I’ve been going to festivals at SOSMP for years and had some of the best times of my life there and could not be more excited! I’ll be rocking a special PA set at 3am Halloween night right after the debut performance from LAVA on the Silent Disco stage. Thank you all for the love and support, I wouldn’t have made it this far without you!!  Things are gonna get spooky!

Hello world! After an inspiring and head-clearing Earthdance Florida, I’ve been busy gearing up for this November. First I’ll be joining Pass the Good Entertainment in Pensacola for a monumental event that I’m honored to be a part of. This year, Floridians will be voting on two state constitutional amendments that should and can be passed. Amendement 1 promotes funding for Florida’s wilderness and natural treasures like the beaches, Everglades, springs, and more through already implemented state taxes that will be reallocated toward this great cause. Amendement 2 provides qualified Floridians the choice for alternative health options through various forms of medical cannabis. This event will be held in support of both amendements on November 4th following the closing of the voting polls with results being played throughout the venue…how awesome is that?!

After a couple weeks rest, I’ll be hoping on the Spoiled Nation tour with ThazDope Records! I could not be more pumped to be joining these guys after the year they’ve been having. I’ll be hoping on the Southeast leg of the tour with stops in Miami, Tampa, Tallahassee, Mobile, Lafayette, and finishing in Pensacola at the picturesque campground/venue Hadji Shrine. I’ve got a ton of treats for you all that I can’t wait to share! So stoked to get back on the road to see you all! Much Love!!

100% of “Human Being Being Human” proceeds going to Yes on 1

Have you had a chance to check out the new album “Human Being Being Human”?? If not, this might be a bit more incentive.

This amendment will aid immensely in the conservation efforts of Florida’s best features including our fresh water, the Everglades, springs, shoreline, beaches, parks and more without raising any taxes (for all the info visit http://www.voteyeson1fl.org/). 

All you have to do is click the link below, put in the amount you’d like to pay for the album, hit submit, and it’ll get automatically donated to the campaign!

Operation Greenfire Fundraising Kick-off Event

Operation Greenfire Fundraising Kick-off Event

C4Collective are beyond excited to be hosting our first C4SociALL event in our local music community at 1904 Music Hall on July 10th. This will be a night of Music, Fashion, Art, and Dance featuring Herd Of Watts and a fashion show made of all upcycled material by Jamila Designs. It will also be a night and dance of Art featuring Cory Ponz and Brian Bernard and a hip-hop dance performance by a local dance school. More bands TBA!

Entry is on a sliding scale from $5-15. That is $5 to get in with an additional suggested $5-10 donation.

The main intention of this event is to raise funds to install a string of 5 permaculture gardens in the local communities. We are calling this initiative Operation Greenfire. Operation Greenfire is a direct-action initiative of C4Collective. Using the ethics and principles of Permaculture, the action plan is to install a string of 5 ecologically designed gardens at private residences in the low-income areas of Jacksonville. We will then use these 5 residential gardens as educational examples to spread the knowledge of growing your own food, gardening, and permaculture. We will continue to have a fund solely dedicated to installing these ecological gardens.

Road to Sonic Bloom

After an absolutely amazing weekend at Little Econ Love Fest, it’s time to bring the festy vibe back to Jacksonville at 1904 Music Hall. The people over at the Sonic Bloom festival put together quite the tour bringing some of their favorite acts from their festival around the country to showcase that west coast festival feel all over the US. Jacksonville was lucky enough to land on the tour and Lumagrove will be joining in the fun! This Friday, April 4, The Malah, Futexture, Spankalicous, and more will be taking the stage along with some of Jacksonville’s best electronic musicians including Bit Deff, Vlad the Inhaler, and more. This is a rare treat for our area and I could not be more excited to join the festivities!

Hello world! 2014 has already been an awesomely exciting year for Lumagrove. After sharing the stage with some my favorite acts this year and already logging in a mini-tour, it’s time for the first festival appearance of the year! Lil’ Econ Love Fest will be held March 28-30 outside of Lakeland, FL at the beautiful Maddox Ranch.

Also, as a rare treat, the organizers from What’s It Records have put together a very impressive workshop/playshop schedule courtesy of Tampa Bay’s Rising Light and Jacksonville’s own C4 Collective. Both groups will have impressive art installations and dome structures as part of their stay that will welcome attendees to make the most of their weekend through a variety of discussions on topics such as earthskills, mediation, yoga, healing, and community outreach.
