A human/solar powered off-grid rock and roll touring apparatus

You could say that we're foregoing automobile's on this tour, but the truth is that we're embracing bicycles.


A human/solar powered off-grid rock and roll touring apparatus.

The Ginger Ninjas are on a 5000 mile tour from Northern California to Southern Mexico, carrying all equipment on their bikes, including this 1000 watt human-powered sound system.

The human powered PA makes extremely low-impact music touring possible, sans automobile and sans electric outlet; it also makes it possible to play music in any location.

A comparison is made between the energy consumed by different touring bands.

See www.pleasantrevolution.net for touring dates and technical details of the system.
