SPOKANE, Wash. - No matter which side of the political spectrum you're on, it's safe to say this election took an emotional toll on many Americans. So a local group called Magic Bus Spokane set out Friday to do a little something to help put some 'pep' back into the step of people in downtown Spokane.
No matter what side of the political spectrum you're on, it's safe to say this election took an emotional toll on many Americans.
The travelling group plays flashback music at different events around the Spokane area.
Today, the Magic Bus Spokane crew set up shop outside River Park Square.
People couldn't help but move to the music as they walked by. Some jumped in to play the tambourine, even saxophonist hopped into the mix.
Organizer Jerome Green says music is therapeutic, and they wanted to help people let loose after a stressful election week.
"We want to cheer people up, we don't want them to feel down and depressed. We want to get them out of that depressed state and get them into a different mindset of fun, something that's going to pick you up," said Green.
He said that the money they receive goes toward a project that encourages kids to explore career opportunities.
