We are creating a new project and would like to invite you to apply to be part of the project. We've been creating instruments out of antique motor oil cans and the business has been blowing up.
We've been having many media outlets reach out to us for press coverage such as Fox 9 News, CNET, Washington County Bulletin, and other places reached out to partner with them including the Lowertown Guitar Festival, NAMM, some music stores, and a winery in Napa Valley.
The actual assembly and selling of the oil can guitars is very labor intensive and not very profitable, however, it’s an amazing tool to help promote music, create viral videos, and help collaborate with other artists.
The project: “Oil Can Sessions” Similar to the TV Show, “Live from Daryl’s House.”
The Hayburners will be on display and used while performing at the Midwest Harmonica workshop 7-20-17 at the MN Music Café in St Paul, MN and will be at the Lowertown Blues Festival July 21 and 22. We are in the process of making vintage oil can banjos, ukuleles, and a shovel guitar. We also partner with non profit organizations by donating a percentage of the sales to the non profit to raise money for music education for kids.
