WHAT IS WAWA??? Wawa is an everything convenience store. It started out as a dairy --- I grew up near it in Delaware County outside Philadelphia. But it’s expanding way beyond Philly now.

This is not a paid gig - I’m not contracted by Wawa. I just love to create collaborative projects. And like most people from Philly, I love Wawa!

My band was hired to play at a local arts organization fundraiser where they were selling a Wawa raffle basket. To sell more tickets,  I called out some chord changes and a Caribbean soca beat and the hook: “Wakeupandjump! Getyourcoffee! Wawa!” Everybody started dancing and JUMPED on the hook. This tune became my most popular composition ever.

So I decided to pitch it to Wawa as a theme song. And then, I decided to see how many people I could get WORLDWIDE to do a #wakeupandjump for me, and combine them into my first full length music video. Then, either Wawa will pick up the song, and/or I’ll have the COOLEST VIDEO EVER AND YOU WILL BE PART OF IT.

#WAKEUPANDJUMP!!!
