For two weeks, the Bay Area was abuzz with Super Bowl 50 action – and Eclecta was busy taking part!

Our first stop: The NFL Players Association’s Super Bowl 50 VIP Party. On Thursday evening, we played for current players, NFL alumni, families, and organizers while they celebrated the game. The crowd was super energetic, so we busted out Michael Jackson, Metallica, Meghan Trainor, and all our upbeat songs so they’d keep dancing, singing, and feeding great energy our way. We had an absolute BLAST.

Our second stop: Gatorade. The night before the Super Bowl, we played a cocktail hour and dinner for members of the Gatorade family, including sports giant Abby Wambach. We are huge fans of Abby both on and off the field; her recent World Cup title and her commitment to promoting gender equality are super inspirational to us. We were stoked to entertain everyone with a few easy-going tunes and to share a few words with Abby after our performance.

Our final stop: Our couches! After a busy weekend, we watched the Super Bowl, totally in awe of Lady Gaga’s National Anthem and Beyonce’s killer appearance in the halftime show, and relaxed before our next set of performances approaches. Stay tuned…

Sometimes gig life takes you to incredible places in the world, and yesterday was no exception. The road to Pebble Beach was pretty spectacular, with trees (and iceplant?!) changing color, clear blue skies, and the cleanest coastline we’d ever seen.
