4.  Pop tracks often hold upbeat rhythms and reach for sunshine. Music has a way of speaking to hidden crevices in the mind, often without the individual’s conscious awareness.



5.  One of contemporary music’s most positively charged band mirrors the message displayed in Rubin’s concept of The Happiness Project. However…they are not scheduled as part of the festival, even though they would be more than perfect to accompany Rubin’s chat. Who are they?… The Steadies – of course. Click HERE to read Punchland’s exclusive interview with Earl Pereira to see how music – quite literally – improved his physical life. Spread the Happiness and request The Steadies at any and all opportunities. NYC needs to feel the Love Revolution for summer smiles.
