The West Village is the historic epicenter of the gay rights movement and Stonewall Riots of the 60's. A hub of creativity and expression with 24/7 energy bursting on the streets!

The abracadabra bus trip far exceeded my expectations. I was not entirely sure what to expect when I arrived but was immediately blown away. The whole crew was friendly and the bus was spectacular!

Mystical experience. Dancing with huge crowd to the fantastic live music band, right in the middle of the busiest street in NYC. If you are looking for something unique, this is it.

We had a great night! I’d say you need to have an open mind and be prepared to just go with the flow. Everything is VERY casual and the timing and schedule is very relaxed. A unique experience for sure.

WOW! What a wonderful experience. So much attention and care was put into creating something unique and special. The access to participate was always open but I also felt comfortable enough to sit back and just observe people lighting up while a colorful bus with awesome music passed by. Everyone was super friendly and attentive. I will definitely join this experience again but with mom and dad or my sons. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

This is what makes NYC great! Take a bus that has carried a generation of New Yorkers to Burning Man every year, with the dust of the Black Rock desert still on its wheels, install a collection of some of the most creative and talented musicians in Brooklyn on its roof, fill the bus with new and old friends who quickly feel like family (and even a dog), and you're off! Our trip started with a private beat box lesson and freestyle performance with audience participation in the bus while the band was doing sound checks. As we drove the first few blocks to Union Square, the Abracadabra band filled the air with their music, and all the busy New Yorkers rushing by on the streets around us could not help but stop and be drawn into the experience. By the time we got to Union Square, a crowd had gathered, and we tumbled out into the park, dancing in the sun with old friends from the bus and new friends from the park. At the end of the set, the Abracadabra band invited onto the roof of the bus a mariachi band that was scheduled to perform in Union Square Park to celebrate Mexican- American unity and protest Trump's proposed tariffs. There were Mexican, American and Pride flags waving, rally cries of brotherhood and unity called out in Spanish and English, and still there was dancing. As we climbed back into the bus, the Radical Matriarchy blew bubbles over our head. The energy in Union Square Park was infectious and so a number of people bought tickets on the spot to join us on the bus and rode with us to The Whitney. We arrived at The Whitney like a rainbow paint splatter of humanity on The Whitney's quiet glass and steel elegance. Kids joined the Radical Matriarchy blowing bubbles in the air, and we danced watching the sun turn gold and sink over the Hudson River. The last stop was Tompkins Square Park, a neighborhood where the artistic talent and fashion choices of the passersby are likely to rival the Abracadabra band. The band, which already had drums, guitars, and saxophones, swelled with new friends on xylophones and harmonicas. The band played a mix of songs everyone knows and original music everyone quickly learned to love. The musicians were tireless. Their energy was captivating. For locals and tourists alike, this is an experience you will remember forever. WARNING: May inspire drastic life changes. :-)
