We have a lot to celebrate this week! THANK YOU so much to so many of you who traveled from around the country and around the world to join us for this year's HANSON DAY celebration, as well as our first annual beer and music festival, The Hop Jam. Over the course of this weekend we were able to do many things we have NEVER done before and your engagement in the weekend's events made all the activities really special.
The weekend's activities had record attendance from Fan Club Members, joining us for the bowling tournament, art gallery, special band talks, and the I Heart HANSON store where we featured many special items. On top of the special events, we got a chance to meet all of the attending members, with our meet and greet photos that were taken and of course we were able to do a special concert JUST FOR YOU, featuring the new member's EP, Music Made For Humans. Also, beyond the performance, we were also able to put the new member's EP featuring five new songs in the hands of many attending members (we hope you are enjoying those tunes).
In our first State Of The Band talk, we we were excited to announce we will be launching a BRAND NEW WEBSITE creating brand new features, better community engagement and a new point system that will help us acknowledge each of our member's activity and the diversity of your involvement in all things HANSON. We will be following up to share in detail what you can expect from the new site, but it is coming in late June and it is going to be awesome!!
As we mentioned, this year we kicked off another brand new event, The Hop Jam, which featured an amazing group of Oklahoma craft beers (as well as our Hanson Brothers Beer) and also engaged our whole community through an all ages free concert with performances by Butch Walker, Robert Randolph, Taddy Porter and a local band Capitol Cars, who won the opening band contest. This event was a huge success with record attendance throughout the day and a massive demand for craft beer. We are so thankful that many of you chose to stay for The Hop Jam this year and helped make it a great event.
As we reflect on all of the activities throughout the week, we really appreciate your amazing support and we’re thrilled to look forward to what we can share with you throughout 2014, plus we can look forward to inviting you ALL back to Tulsa to make our next HDAY and Hop Jam better than the last!
It’s great to be a 22 year old band that still has so much to look forward to. Thank you to all of you for being a part of the H community and for making this last weekend the best HDay Gathering ever!
Have a great week
Isaac, Taylor and Zac
