Jazz Festival and Crawfish Festival have always held a special place in our hearts not solely because of the music but also because they have become a family affair. Our hearts melted when we heard Louisiana was still suffering immensely from the flooding this past year. We reached out to Michael Arnone, founder of Crawfish […]

Of the many lessons learned on the road, the one we’ve embraced the most is the free spirit lifestyle that comes from living in our van. Meeting different people and taking unexpected routes has led us to some amazing and unplanned adventures. We started the new year home in NJ with friends and family. Shortly […]

Back together again! We are very excited to be back to our old tricks. After visiting family in Florida, we made our way on a Greyhound bus, in the middle of the night to New Orleans. We were told French Quarter Festival (FQF) is one not to miss, so we rented a place for a […]

High Sierra Music Festival is located in Plumas County, California among rugged canyons, clear lakes, grassy meadows, streams, pine forests, and star filled skies. The location in the northeastern Sierra Nevada Mountains to be exact, was a scenic 6-hour drive for us from Santa Clara. Our two friends from New Jersey, Chris and Josh, joined the gypsy wagon for the weekend […]

As you know, the Gypsies love a good tradition. My family and I have been meeting on Tybee Island for the past five years. Tybee Island is a small island off the coast of Georgia where simple life meets the beach. A place without chain hotels, where you bike instead of drive, and everyone says […]

When researching ways to give back to NYC, a city that we have called home for over 10 years, we found the City Parks Foundation. They host free concerts in NYC parks through out the summer! Right up our alley 🙂 Good music, good vibes, and outdoors! We signed up for John Butler Trio, a band we have seen one or two times, at the Summer Stage in Central Park. When you walk into Central Park you almost forget where you are. That is the best part about it–an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city while staying right at home. When we arrived here we got our volunteer shirts and were given the duty of letting VIP’s into the bleacher section of the venue. Kahlil left us with some words of wisdom for evening “Just have fun, don’t take any task to seriously, you have to let loose once in awhile”…ok by us! Our task was pretty easy, got to see some friends who were checkin’ out the show, and we danced and had a little fun too!
The most touching part of the show came when the band announced that a group traveled from Colorado to see the show. They had seen the band in Colorado the week prior and on their friend was tragically killed after the show. You truly never know when it will be your last day, night, show, etc. Give back and touch others lives when you can! Volunteering with these nice people that evening (in the heat!) was well worth the time. Free concerts at the Summer Stage wouldnt be possible without volunteers. People of all ages need some sense of relief from the busy, city life and what better way to do it then out in nature, the beautiful Central Park with good vibes! It is certainly good for the soul!
