We've been nesting up in Portland getting your gifts ready, so if you're due another prize, keep your eye out for that soon. Than you for your patience -- it has taken longer than we expected to get all of our thank-you gifts to you. We're excited to finally be putting all of our work into your hands. Or your hard drive.

more news!!

We have been loving working on this project together so much that we've decided to keep it going and turn it into a band. The band is called HITS. HITS is Allan, Lisa & Heather, with a rotating cast of guest musicians, dancers, and artists. HITS will be performing at the Creative Music Guild's IMPROVISATION SUMMIT on May 31 in Portland. 

If you have any trouble accessing your download of the documentary, please email Lisa at drummer.schonberg at gmail.com.

LOVE, the Hits of Sunshine crew

Update #4

You are invited to Joshua Tree CA for our performance 11.3.12

Comment

Hello!

We are keeping so busy in the desert working on some super exciting stuff.

Heather has finished several costumes that looked dazzling against the backdrop of boulders and cacti here. Below is a photo that Dan Anderson took of a few of us goofing off in the sand wearing some of our new threads.

Yesterday we visited one of our performance sites ----- Sound Camp. Andrea, Brooks and Lisa trekked out there yesterday to assess the site for the event, and it was perfect in every way --- amazing acoustics in a natural boulder amphitheater of sorts, and open desert as far as you can see. Below is a cell video of the performance spot at Sound Camp. 

We would love to see you / meet you at our performance. Come out to Joshua Tree - it will be well worth the trip, and you can make a vacation of it and do some camping in the National Park and immerse yourself in a sound bath in the Integratron while you're out here. Our event will take place over the course of the day on 11.3.12 -- things will get started around 1 pm, and we'll break a couple hours for dinner.  For more info check out our Facebook event page!! 

And we'll keep posting to our tumblr as well ---- www.hitsofsunshinejt.tumblr.com

all the best,
THE HITS OF SUNSHINE CREW
