Happy Camper Live: March’s Musical Camper

Written By: happycamper

If you are like us, there is constant white noise through the day.  Our favorite is music of any kind just lulling in the background. It makes the most menial chore or activity more fun.  There is so much to be said about music and sounds starting from birth, and the troves of musicians and commercialization of the industry in the world are a testament to just that. Herewith, have a gander at our favorite Top Picks for the Musical Camper!  Break out your earplugs and we are sorry in advance!
