Two Hundred Boomboxes.
Six Banana Minions primed to Protect and Serve.
Seven Parties over 13,000km coast-to-coast-to-coast in 18 days.
Only two weeks to prepare for something never before attempted in the history of man.
The weather was perfect.
No problems with our motorhome.
Our Banana Task Force went above and beyond, night after night.
No technical difficulties- our Party Broadcasts were received loud and clear.
The police were unbelievably accommodating and a great help everywhere we went.
Thousands showed up and gave it their all, Partying crazily yet respectfully in every city.
And we only lost about ninety stereos in total- not bad for Seven Wild DDPs!
We Partied Hard every stop of the tour and received unanimously positive reviews from everyone who came out and shared the DDP experience with us.
It was also great to have such a diverse array of people embrace our “Canadian” theme and it felt like we really did manage to re-create the indescribable Unity+Joy+Canadian Pride that we’d experienced only once before- during Vancouver’s recent Olympic celebrations :)
Young and Old, Black and White, Male and Female- from Crust Punks and Party Animals to Nerds and Natives. From Jocks and Juggalos to Shy Asians and Scandalous Sex-bombs. The DDP truly is a Party for everyone. A crazy communal undertaking that brought thousands of strangers together to sing and dance and enjoy life to the fullest in the fine streets of our fine country!
The only downside was that in spite of generous donations from hundreds of people, we didn’t manage to raise enough money to cover our costs… We will post the grim details soon, along with a new fund-raising page that includes links to new Party Safari t-shirt designs for those who wish to help :) (t-shirts already ordered will be printed+shipped asap) UPDATE: Fund-raiser page now up HERE
We’re also working on videos for each stop.

HUGE THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO CAME OUT AND SUPPORTED THE CAUSE!
WE ARE PROUD TO BE CANADIAN AND CAN’T WAIT TO PARTY WITH EVERYONE AGAIN IN THE SPRING!
FIRST CANADA, AND THEN THE WORLD!
The Grand Finale Vancouver DDP was totally wild and was possibly the most fun of all…
Ten hours of absolute Banandemonium, and our Elite Banana Party Army is now formed and ready for Action… For all the details, click HERE
