TransContinental Trip‘s music boards listeners onto a wild, funky, ride. Their energy thrives at festivals such as Utopia or Wakarusa where an audience is captivated. One thing that sets these musicians apart is their ability to engage listeners in a unique way. At Wakarusa festival this June, the band traveled with their tricked out music bus complete with a generator. It gives them the ability to supply several electric guitars, bass and a full set of drums for themselves and any rock loving, funk inspired musician who stumbles by.  For drummer, Robert Slangen, the bus is a way to interact with others through music at what can otherwise be an uninspired trip.

“It’s a three day festival. People get to see people on stage and get inspired in that way but they don’t have anything to play on when they get back to the tent except maybe a ukulele.”
– Robert Slangen


At Wakarusa, TransContinental Trip met The Works, a band out of Colorado, and say they plan to join them on a tour through Colorado later this year.

In the studio, the band shared an exclusive acoustic cover of one of their songs, Halfway Weird. The band maintains a strong connection to the jam band style approach and says that in the future when they do produce a full length album they plan to use live recordings. In an industry facing consumers with short attention spans, I wondered if they thought about where their music might fit. They said that their place is within the community of festival goers who are passionate about jams.
