Jennifer has a custom-made keyboard tricycle that brings a creative new twist to live music. With its own portable power source, the trike enables Jennifer to play music in locations that present logistical obstacles for conventional bands.
Jennifer has played on her trike at events through the San Francisco Bay Area, including Maker Faire, Sunday Streets, Bay to Breakers, Biketoberfest in Marin, SF’s Chinatown Resource Fair, UCSF Benioff Concert for Kids, Fleet Week, Playland on Balboa Music Festival, and many others.
Why a tricycle?
Jennifer conceived of her trike while sitting in with musicians on a San Francisco street corner.
Determined to overcome the piano’s lack of portability and wanting to create her own spontaneous gigs, Jennifer spent over a year to create her trike, with scores of friends lending their expertise to design, weld, wire, upholster, decorate and otherwise make it possible.
MAKING THE UNIVERSE MORE AWESOME
To help defray expenses associated with her trike, Jennifer secured a grant from the Awesome Foundation, a global community committed to “advancing the interest of awesome in the universe.” Click here to learn more.
