The Ambassadors are a group of individuals who have realized their capacity to make a difference in their local communities, the Bassnectar Community, and beyond.
The Ambassador Program is not a fan club; this is a place for like-minded individuals to come together and figure out how we can contribute to the vibrant community we are a part of, and how to spread this vibrancy to the world at large.
Being an Ambassador means tapping into your most creative, helpful, empathetic, and enthusiastic self. Ambassadors break down barriers between strangers, encourage community interaction, and inspire those around them to look out for one another – at shows/festivals, in everyday life, and in the digital world. This is one giant group of selfless, like-minded individuals gathered to provide new and ever-lasting experiences for those around us.
“Being an ambassador IS NOT about working at a show, it’s NOT about wearing a white shirt, and passing out water…… it’s about incorporating these values into your life and expressing them outward (values like love, kindness, health, respect, creativity, treating others as you want to be treated, honoring family and friendship, thinking critically, etc)” – Lorin Ashton

As soon as we discover any way to restart the engines, we promise you to come back bigger, stronger, and better than ever with all dials cranked to maximum… we are already exploring every possible option for the last part of this year, and for 2021. But when we do finally design our events in the future, we want you to be able to decide if and how it’s right for you to participate, and not be bound to it at a time when you may have more important concerns of survival and well-being. We wish the absolute best to you and your families, and while music and art matter so much to us, nothing is more important or precious than human life and we celebrate you making the most of every possible second.
Also, as we prepare to launch the first full length album in years, we are bursting with creative energy to explore new ways of sharing music. The Lockdown Mixtapes series will continue for as long as we are all on lockdown, and there are many, many, many chapters of that to unlock and explore… so stay tuned.
PS: It is quite possible that we will not gather together until after November 2020.
It is possible we will not see each other before that, so something needs to be addressed:
It is impossible to ignore a death toll 50,000+ and growing. It is impossible to ignore a terrifying, crippling financial crisis. It is impossible to ignore the fact that we are all trapped at home, under house arrest. It is impossible to ignore the absence of strong, kind, competent, honest, talented leadership to guide us through this.
It’s time to admit this entire crisis did not need to happen on this level, and it did not need to be this bad. We are *outraged* at the loss of human life, at the destruction of our economy, at the loss of our dreams and hopes for this year.
The phrase “rage against the dying of the light” could not be any more relevant, nor pressing in times of crisis like these. While art, music and celebration are priceless aspects of life, there comes a time when all of our attention is urgently required toward matters of human justice and the sanctity of life.
Please read this, if you can, without a partisan reaction – please do not allow your mind to be derailed about “politics” – please read this from the heart because it is about our authentic hopes and dreams for the quality of your life, and your family’s lives:
All politics aside, we as a society deserve a government who is smart, honest, transparent, generous, dedicated to the common good of all of its citizens, freely accepting of criticism, responsive to skeptical speculation, cooperative to working with everyone, and above all: capable of truly leading all of us to the best possible scenarios so we and our families can not just survive but thrive. We deserve a leader who can admit their mistakes, welcome advice and assistance, and who is talented at problem solving and cooperating with a team.
Whether you have strong personal political convictions, or even if you have never thought about it, our team IMPLORES you to take some time to reflect with an OPEN MIND:
Stop thinking about politics. stop thinking about whose side you are on. Stop thinking about whose side other people are on. Realize that there are no “sides” in this game at the end and everyone on this planet is on the same team at the end of the day. If you aren’t fighting for all, then you aren’t in the right fight. We encourage you instead to just center in on:
WHAT MATTERS MOST TO YOU?
What do YOU believe in, and what do you know is right?
When you can define that, you can see which individual human candidates MOST fits your own honest description. No politics. No choosing someone because they claim they are on your team, or wear your color, or control the news you watch. Think for yourself and question:
Who will *BEST* lead us in the right direction? Not who is perfect, but who is CLOSEST to your values? Where do honesty, truthfulness, justice and compassion sit in your value hierarchy?
If you decide the answer is NOT our current president, that does not make you political, it does not make you biased, it does not make you partisan. You do not need to feel forced to support someone out of fear or propaganda. Just be honest with yourself: of the two choices in November [and sadly, MADDENINGLY, there will only be two – this is not ideal, but it’s a harsh fact: you will be forced to decide between TWO choices: One will be bad, and the other will be MUCH WORSE:
So – with all politics aside – understanding that both options will have glaring flaws – PLEASE consider participating in our election and honestly deciding which one of those options is most in line with your own values. [NOTE: as frustrating as this 2-party system is, it’s a reality we need to accept in the current climate. Having voted Green in the past it’s proof that the result is not good. For further opinion on the matter, we defer to Noam Chomsky: https://twitter.com/mehdirhasan/status/801850604352106497]
This entire life changing crisis has been abhorrently mishandled, and the future will hold new chaos, new challenges, new crises: we as a society need to constantly work toward being better prepared to handle adversity for the betterment of all.
We hope you hear this all with an open heart.
FRIDAY MAY 1, 2020
THE LOCKDOWN MIXTAPES:
“INSIDE FOR THE PEOPLE”
The 1st in a series of custom-crafted mixtape journeys centered on select cuts from this summer’s forthcoming album “ALL COLORS”
Stay tuned for more info including an interactive online listening experience!
With regards to the news that Deja Voom has been cancelled due to the global pandemic COVID-19, our team is obviously disappointed – as artists and dreamers we have been working tirelessly this past year to bring you an absolutely magical experience…
But as human beings living through this global emergency; fun, parties, and concerts are the last things on our minds right now. We are viscerally concerned about the health, safety and well-being of our friends and family, as well as our communities and our society at large.
This situation requires patience, courage, discipline, calm, generosity, compassion, conscientiousness, a respect for science and facts, and an earnest resolve to love thy neighbor and treat others how we wish to be treated: a commitment to rise to the challenge of caring for those around us, for cooperating instead of competing: to prioritize the health and well-being of everyone in our communities and our society.
And to us, this is the crux and the focus of the pandemic: working together to calmly and mindfully slow the spread of this virus to protect our friends and family who are at a high risk. You have the chance to participate in a worldwide revolution, and you can literally help save the day.
What you can do right now to help Save The Grammas:
> Work with your community to avoid spreading or contracting COVID-19.
> Practice careful personal hygiene everywhere, at home, at work.
> Practice social distancing by staying home when possible, and temporarily avoiding large crowds.
> Prepare to care for your non-severe illness at home: be mindful of your housemates and communicate as a team.
> Protect yourself, avoid sharing or spreading germs, build your immune system with vitamin C, supplements, get lots of sleep and drink lots of water.
> And if you are just feeling anxious and concerned, that is ok! These are extreme times. Here are some resources for you! https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/coping.html
Let’s pitch in for the general health of everyone. If you are in a situation where you could leave the house do something you enjoy, and leaving the house runs the heightened risk of contracting a virus which won’t kill you, and you could spread to other people who COULD die from it, don’t leave the house. Why not take one for the team and practice extra care, even if it feels like a sacrifice. And honestly: maybe this can be some much needed creative time to reflect, read, meditate, exercise, or relax.
If you have to interact in public, at work, or on an errand, make sure to keep a safe distance from others, and just be mindful: allow others to practice social distancing [like a smile instead of a handshake] without teasing them or making it weird. Make those around you feel comfortable by taking extra care, and take initiative to feel comfortable taking extra care despite how others might feel.
For now, drastic changes to our behavior and social customs are immediately required for the well-being of those around us: mindfulness, extra care, social distancing, enhanced hygiene, choosing to temporarily avoid large social gatherings, going without some of the luxuries of entertainment and everyday life.
Obviously, this situation sucks – let’s deal with the disappointment another time, and celebrate like mad when it’s over.
And if we all work together now as a team, swiftly and with dedicated cooperation, we can slow the spread of this virus and move closer to getting this under control as soon as possible.
