The band has teamed up with the Colorado brewing company Oskar Blues / Can’d Aid Foundation on this tour to give back to the community by raising money from concert tickets, with the intention of donating music instruments to public schools in need. For every ticket sold on the Just A Little tour, the band will donate $1. As a reult, CAN’d Aid and their TUNES Ambassadors will be able to host music workships, teaching kids how to jam to blues, rock, funk, and more. Learn more about Can’d Aid Foundation here. So far, instrument donations are scheduled for Madison, WI and Jacksonville, FL on this tour.Appropriately named Just A Little, this tour is just a sliver of what Sunsquabi has in store for the future as they continue on in their musical odyssey. Joining the band on support will be friends Exmag and Beak Nasty. Back in November, SunSquabi sold out their first headlining show at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, CO. The accomplishment solidified the band into a headliner position in Colorado as they recently announced a co-headline appearance at Red Rocks with Opiuo on April 21st. The Just A Little tour is the largest headline run to date for the trio, and you can catch them in a city near you.You can enjoy pro-shot video of SunSquabi’s tour opening show below, courtesy of the band.

Students from 15 different districts attend classes at Broome-Tioga BOCES. Because of this, superintendent Allen Buyck says his district faces logistical challenges other districts don’t. He did say he has seen some success with a largely remote learning plan, as his cosmetology students have been practicing on mannequins at their homes this summer. Buyck said he believes in person learning is the most beneficial method, and he said if people wear masks, schools are more likely to fully reopen. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — One local school district is facing even greater challenges than most to reopen. “It would not shock me if we’re in some kind of hybrid mode,” Buyck told 12 News Thursday. “I think it’s going to be difficult for the schools to open up having all of their students back in the building, so I would expect we’ll see some kind of a mix between remote and in classroom.” This is one of several reasons the superintendent believes schools won’t be 100% open right away. On top of this, New York State still hasn’t sent out its finalized reopening guidelines, and has until the first week of August to do so.
