All At Once Tour Documentary

In celebration of Earth Month, last week Pivot TV  premiered “All At Once: On The Road,” a documentary following Jack’s 2014 North American west coast tour and highlighting his music, lifestyle, and greening initiatives.

If you missed the film premiere on Pivot TV, the film is now available for sale or rent exclusively on iTunes.

The film highlights the Johnson‘s Kokua Hawaii Foundation, the work of the All At Once campaign, and several key non-profit partners and businesses focusing on plastic free initiatives and sustainable local food systems. Tune in to see how Jack and his team strive to create as little impact on the Earth as possible, from traveling on biodiesel-powered buses, to sourcing organic and locally grown meals, to carefully disposing of waste along the way.

Get a first-hand look at the day-to-day life of the band on tour, including incredible performance footage of Jack on stage at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre with Animal Liberation Orchestra, the Greek Theater in Berkeley with Bahamas, the iconic The Gorge Amphitheatre with Eddie Vedder, special guest appearances by surfer and environmentalist Rob Machado, and surfer Kelly Slater at the Santa Barbara Bowl. The goal of the tour and this documentary is to inspire people to get involved, make the right choices, and enjoy the music along the way.

“My friend Heather Goodchild has basically worked on everything I’ve ever done. For my first album, Pink Strat, she and I silkscreened the first two hundred covers in my living room. For my second record, she made this rug that said Barchords for the cover… now she’s hand-drawn a video for “Bitter Memories”.”
