As we reported in May, ten Belmont University juniors and seniors have joined professor and legendary musician Mark Volman, a founding member of The Turtles, on the road for a portion of the Happy Together Tour.
The tour is part of an experiential learning class that will host the students for two and a half weeks on one tour bus for a grade and credit under the guidance of Volman and staff advisor Lucas Boto. Students will work with touring artists and crew professionals in the areas of tour management, stage management, audio engineering, tour accounting and merchandise sales. These duties will be in addition to load-in, setup, tear-down and load-out.
“Only at Belmont do students get such a unique opportunity,” said Volman. “I’m excited to teach them what I know outside a normal classroom space. Inevitably, their energy will add to the tour experience for the performers as well.”
The Happy Together Tour unites several pop/rock artists of the ‘60s, starring The Turtles featuring Flo and Eddie, The Monkees lead singer Micky Dolenz, Gary Puckett & The Union Gap, The Grass Roots, and The Buckinghams.
