Boarding 8/1/14, East Coast by rail and worldwide by wireTweets about "#JURT"
If Technology lets us talk to anyone, and Music lets us find common ground—what would happen if the World started jamming?
Musician Josh Urban plans on finding out with the 2014 Rail Tour. He's kicking off the worldwide jam session on 8/1/14, and he invites you to be part of it. Be in the interactive music video (you don't even have to play an instrument!) Join participants from an international audience, show the world that you're part of the human band, and build common ground through music.
Here's what's up: Josh is boarding a train, and taking the world on tour with him using the power of social media. Playing in the cities and streets, he'll be filming the journey, and creating a collaborative music video - and reality - of a global jam session. Be part of the tour, the video, and the worldwide jam: Record a video or take a photo of yourself dancing, jumping, waving, or otherwise rockin' out to the new song (also on soundcloud), post it to social media, and tag it back to the tour using the hashtag #JURT (Josh Urban Rail Tour.)
For extra fun, use a broom as an air guitar to match Josh's real broom guitar. Everyone can rock out, regardless of if they play an instrument or not! And hey, musicians, be part of the soundtrack! Tag sounds back to #JURT, and Josh will add them in for the final video remix.
The world can be a divisive place, so let's build some common ground through music. Let's talk to each other, let's dance...Let's jam.
