DID YOU CATCH THE TRAVEL BUGS IN MANCHESTER?
The first ever full band Travel Bugs concert happened at GeoCoinfest 2019 Europe in Manchester, UK. Were you there?
Steve, the madman behind The Travel Bugs, was accompanied by the Belgian geocaching band
Bugsy Travels & The Ammo Boxes onstage at the GeoCoinfest event as well as
the after party at the Old Nag's Head pub. The musicians collborated online via Skype, exchanging MP3 files to practice virtually as a group.
When they joined each other on the stage in Manchester, it was the first time they had ever met in person and within minutes, they were off
Everyone was treated to a dual concert at the pub later that night as the band played as The Travel Bugs immediately followed by a Bugsy Travels & the Ammo Boxes show.
"This was one of the most interesting and rewarding musical experiences I've ever had.", said Steve about the endeavour. "We can't wait to do it again!"
So keep an eye out for this international geocaching super-group at future events!"
A huge thanks to cacher Mrs Scothog, who comissioned a custom song to help fund the effort to bring the Travel Bugs to
to GeoCoinfest 2019 in Manchester UK. This song "Fiona Finds an Earthcache" is based on her actual cache logs
for a few of the over 800 earthcaches that she has found!
Hear the Song!
HELP THE TRAVEL BUGS COME TO ENGLAND!!!
The good folks at Geocoin Fest 2019 in Manchester, UK are playing host to the first ever European Travel Bugs concert. As always, these events run on blood, sweat and tears, so I’m trying to help raise some funds to make this more feasible for them.
So, if you are a geocacher and would like to support this effort, we could use your help. You can make a donation toward making this concert happen. I would be greatly appreciative for any support I can get.
To sweeten the pot, I have some rewards that you can get for your donation.
