Ringo's Introduction
Call them freaks, the underground, the counter-culture, flower children or New Hippies - they are all loose labels for Joe & Harmony's Trippy Hippy Band, a band of 60s aficionados who sing the songs that transformed life in the West as we knew it. The Trippy Hippies are probably the most popular and gifted new hippies living in the world today: parents, musical expeditionaries, humane alchemists, masters of ceremony, gurus, animal unionists, public commentators, folk heroes, and bridge builders. They join The Mamas & The Papas, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and The Grateful Dead in what is a remarkable procession of musical groups who have broken-on-thru to the other side of "communl jacuzzi" hopping.

Joe & Harmony's musical coming out in San Francisco's Haight Ashbury district was repeated in Australia with The Trippy Hippy Band including "Julia's Yoga Group", "The Lawson Be-In" and countless street performances for the terminally hip of Nimbin. Their recent English Tour, "Shine On You Crazy Opals" received the Rosie Award for Live Entertainment and was met with unanimous critical acclaim.

American credits include the now legendary trip special, "A Week One Day In Woodstock" and a memorable flashback to The Kate Wolfe Festival in Laytonville California with special guests Tom Paxton, Wavy Gravy and Joan Baez.
The New Hippie

Harmony is currently writing a book not only about her childhood in Laurel Canyon alongside neighbors Joni Mitchell, Graham Nash and Frank Zappa, but also about divorcing her parents after suddenly in 1980 they voted for Ronald Reagan. Joe too is exploring his life, from birth in Brooklyn New York to being orphaned in San Francisco, in the seminal musical "Charles Manson Is An Asshole!" which is currently being adapted for the big screen.

The Trippy Hippy Band Never Ending Trip Tour is now entering its 3rd year. They will continue to sing the 60s gospel of peace and love and flower power until people get the message: that the cultural revolution didn't end when The Beatles split; nor when Jimi, Jim and Janis became casualties of war. The spirit of Flower Power prevailed. In fact, it thrived. It lives on today in the New Hippie culture, in Green Peace, in Gay Rights, wherever grown men are eating lentil burgers, or wherever yoga is practiced by swing voters. That's where you'll find Joe & Harmony's Trippy Hippy Band, visiting world leaders, jet-setting to stages on the Mexican border, London, Sydney, Switzerland and China, singing the songs of the revolution to remind people, this is not a hippie revival, this is not mere nostalgia; this is not a come back (because no one went away): This is the dawning of the age of the New Hippie.

This is Joe & Harmony's Trippy Hippy Band.
