Papa Needs Some New Gear

Let's talk about Papa Tones for a minute. How many times have you gone wild on his dance floor at a work scholar party, a full moon gathering, ecstatic dance, Fritz afterhours, or a staff week wednesday night? If there is one thing that we know about Papa Tones is that he loves to drop beats and make people wiggle around. He shows up consistently for the esalen community with his love of music and in every way he can. He's always down to bring his speaker to your bbq, he's always got a playlist for your prom in the solarium, he's always making the lodge more fun by blasting the right music from the kitchen....
He loves to make any given moment better and create community with music and it's time to give back.
That's right, Papa needs some new gear.
Until now all of his gear,including blinky lights, chords, the newest tracks, bubble guns, and hookah tobacco have come out of his own pocket and it's time for those who have been shaking it on his dance floor for the last ten years to get a chance to show him some love.....
Help him help you dance it out.....

Here is where the money will go:

DJ Mixer (One where all the buttons work)


Speaker Package (Because the Far Inn Speakers can only go so far)


Subwoofer (it makes things go womp)

$279.99 Mixer (Ties the whole package together...)

(There is a little extra to compensate for fundraising fees and shipping and handling.)

If every person that has ever blissed out on Anthony's dancefloor threw in a few bucks this goal is entirely manageable. Please pass this on to your fellow workscholars, ES's, esalen staff, and Big Sur community members to help keep the music flowing.

Sending you so much love! See you on the dance floor!
