Overview

Like a VW Combi van with The Mamas & The Papas, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and a groovy AM radio, Joe & Harmony’s Trippy Hippy Band takes off at a cool pace with one hand firmly on the politics of revolutionary songs from the 1960s and a third eye on the cosmic gospel of peace and love.

Harmony Breeze learned to sing in another life, milking cows on Max Yasgur’s farm. She lived in Laurel Canyon and Haight Ashbury, tie-dying T-shirts & organising BE-Ins, one that lasted 6 years. That’s how she met Joe Flower, part hoodoo man, part folk-nik, who lived by busking old blues tunes & selling hallucinogenic CDs inspired by the words of the Maharishi Sunblessed Bogey.

Joe & Harmony began singing songs together, grooving up festivals from Laytonville California to Wonthaggi Australia with psychedelic tidbits and groovy acoustic classics from the 60s revolution. In Australia, they shared a jacuzzi with nifty vocalist/guitarist Rose of Cimarron, the silver throated Yossarian and magical mandolinist the one and only Billy Shears. Together they formed the 5 piece Trippy Hippy Band whose never ending mission is to supernaturally transport audiences back to an era that most can’t even remember.
