With Guest Dave Lippman: “All We Are Saying Is End Corporate Crime”

The Occuponics perform with master parodist Dave Lippman at Zuccotti Park (AKA Liberty Plaza), April, 2011. The work performed is Dave’s parody of John Lennon’s classic “All We Are Saying Is Give Peace a Chance,” a song that became a bona fide anthem of the anti-war movement of the late 1960s that Dave has updated for today’s era.

Occuponics Occupy Fort Greene, Brooklyn, 3/25/2012

The Occuponics greatly enjoyed providing musical entertainment for Occupy Town Square’s “pop up” Occupation, which occurred on Sunday, March 25th, 2012. Although it rained a bit, the inclement weather could not damp the spirit of the peaceful demonstrators, and a fine time was had by all.

The band performed many songs at Occupy Fort Greene, both original, parodies, and traditional folk songs. Other musicians were also on hand, including Dave Lippman, and the irrepressible Rude Mechanical Orchestra.
