Hey there! Sorry I didn't get your comment until right now!!! Yes I am an Iowa hooper! The music scene is huge around here, 80-35 festival, John Butler Trio, The Wailers, Moe. (this friday at Simon Estes) Primus (soon) and the Future History Festival (I am a performer for this whole weekend) and too many more to list all going on or happened this summer already!!! I am a part of some groups but here in Iowa Hoopers are not the norm like everywhere else (which ROCKS!!! We are still rather unique and special--although we all are special!!) so it's harder to find a group that is willing to meet on a regular basis. I do teaching and pretty much give away free hoops to everyone who is interested! Just spreading the good word!!!
What's your story??? Good to meet you!
