Bikers ride for Bandwagon this Saturday

SURREY – When you hear that someone is “jumping on the bandwagon,” it’s rarely a good thing. For bikers who are joining in on Saturday’s (Sept. 13) Music Therapy Ride, which will start off at Coquitlam’s Hard Rock Casino and roll up to Whistler, jumping on the bandwagon is exactly what they want to do.

One of the many projects funded by the annual ride are two “Bandwagons” – mobile recording studios designed for music therapists to use with their clients.

One Surrey-based music therapist in particular has had great success with the Bandwagon, and a sneak peek of her Bandwagon project has gone live on her YouTube account.

Sheila Lee of She.Lee. Music said that without the help of the Music Therapy Ride, which loaned She.Lee. Music the Bandwagon on a six-week residency, she and her clients wouldn’t have been able to have so much fun exploring and experimenting with the mobile recording unit.

“I brought (it) to a high school in Surrey and inside there’s an iMac and a midi keyboard and cables and recording software – everything you need to just make a recording project, or to make music in a lot of different ways with clients,” Lee told the Now.

To reserve a spot on the ride, go to Musictherapyride.org.
