California Dreamin' With Green River Ordinance


On a warm, California day, unsuspecting Customers boarded the Aloft Hotels Presents Live in the Vineyard-decaled Southwest plane. To them, it was business as usual. But here at Southwest, we like to be different. Without warning, national recording group Green River Ordinance (GRO) tuned their guitars and began strumming and singing for the Customers.

The flight from Burbank to Oakland, though a short one, proved enough time for GRO to play a two-song set to a sold out crowd at 35,000 feet in the air.


On the ground in Oakland, GRO kept the party rockin’ by playing “Healing Touch,” an unreleased tune on their new record (check our Nuts About Southwest blog next week for the video performance). Without question, such a performance garnered intrigued looks and camera flashes from those passing through the airport.  The intimate performance is sure to strike a chord with GRO fans and music enthusiasts alike.

Luckily for you, we captured each moment on film. Keep your ears peeled; your next flight just might be a ‘Surprise and Delight!’
