I almost didn’t make it to NNMF 2014 … but as I was giving up Tucker Gumber messaged me and said: “You’re coming with me!”
I had invited co-workers … I invited friends … I tried to catch a ride on Zimride …. and then at my darkest moment, Tucker messaged me. Do you know Tucker Gumber? He’s “The Festival Guy!” Best described as the guy you see at EVERY festival and definitely, as a promoter, he’s the guy you want at your festival.
Tucker and I met at SxSW … I didn’t meet him first … I met his buddy. We struck up a conversation in the VIP booth at Pandora. When I was done ranting about music, SF Intercom, DeliRadio … the guy was like “You need to meet my buddy, Tucker!” To which I responded, “oh yeah? Is he here?!” He was like “no … but he’ll definitely come over.”
And he did! He told me about Music, Festivals, and his project FestEvo! Tucker is an amazing guy … I knew we were going to be friends … but I had no idea he would be the reason I made it to a festival that I had pretty much given up on.
Tucker knew everybody at Northern Nights Music Festival. He’s the guy you want to show up when you realize you know nobody. So my advice to you … download his app … go to a festival … maybe NNMF 2015 … look for Tucker! Maybe you’ll be as lucky as me and he’ll spruce up your ok outfit with a green leopard print alligator jacket.
