April Team Leaders of the Month - HeadCount

April Team Leaders of the Month

HeadCount has the best volunteers in music and we want the whole world to know. We tried shouting it from various rooftops but after a few rooftops our voices got a little hoarse and we realized no one was listening to us. So instead we decided to highlight a different volunteer Team Leader every month. For the month of April we are celebrating Celia and Yancey Gregory, HeadCount’s Team Leaders in Nashville, Tennessee.

Names: Celia and Yancey Gregory

Location: Nashville, TN

Alma Mater: University of South Carolina (both)

Favorite Artist: You mean ALL of the HeadCount partner artists?! Phish too.

Top Issues: Education, Environment, Women's Rights

Hobbies: Show-Going (duh), Being Outdoors, Craft Beer, Traveling

Best HeadCount Experience: SO many over 8 years:
CG: Dave Matthews thanking me for being on tour registering voters (!); interviewing several partner artists including Bobby [Weir] for HC's online Headliners Radio channel (RIP); engaging new volunteers who become dear friends; hearing "I registered with HeadCount at a show [2 weeks, 3 months or 6 years ago]!"; all of the sound checks!; volunteering together at Fare Thee Well in Chicago

YG: Fare Thee Well. Seeing everyone descend on a place and the palpable spirit coming from the stage, the fans, in the concourse, in the streets, was like no other concert experience I've ever attended.
