The Thrive Band Release Music Video Filmed on Petaluma Ca Riverfront

I thought this music video would be a good one to share.  The footage was captured in our Petaluma river basin and mill waterfront.  I also liked the messaging these artists are sharing in their song “One” with chorus:

“One people one love one life one time
Time to make up your mind
We are one
One religion one vision one decision one mission here under the sun
We are one”

On The Thrive Band YouTube page gives the following: We are one! Thank you to everyone that made this video possible. It was such a blast having so many of our family and friends join us on this cold winter afternoon in beautiful Petaluma. This town will always hold a special place in our hearts, as it was Scott Schipper’s home town. We know he was there in spirit with us all!

Former Petaluman Scott Schipper and Sax player for the Thrive passed in 2013 after losing a two year battle to cancer.
