Twice a year, our website puts on a long-weekend-long event called “A-Camp” in the wilds of the San Bernardino mountains and inevitably said event includes at least one triumphant concert headed up by the A-Camp Family Band. The A-Camp Family Band’s #1 mission is to encapsulate the energy and excitement embodied by the bands who inexplicably play all teenage television show proms even though in real life there’s never a real band, you just get a DJ or whatever.
The A-Camp Family Band is captained by our Music Editor Stef Schwartz with A-Camp Co-Director Marni Kellison and features singer Haviland Stillwell and drummer Alex Vega as well as a rotating roster of extraordinarily talented humans such as Lex Kennedy, Somer Bingham, Donna Rizzo, Brittani Nichols and Cara Giaimo.
For our October camp, Marni (musician, bear, my boifriend) arranged a mashup of two songs you probably love: “Waterfalls” by TLC and “She Keeps Me Warm” by Mary Lambert AND NOW as per crowd request, Haviland, Stef and Marni have recorded this mash-up for you! They’ve put it on the Cloud of Sound! Furthermore, rapper Licki Ucroj (aka actress Lauren Neal) drops in for the rap.
If you have a case of the Mondays, this song is a guaranteed cure.

I definitely didn’t believe it would cure my Mondays until I played the song.
I played it 10 more times for good measure.
THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY. I can listen to Marni’s voice whenever I want now. YESSS
This is literally everything I’ve ever wanted in life. Everything. All the things.

Fabulousness! The Spice Girls Medley is also pretty awesome
Oh my god. I’m just. I love.

This is amazing! I missed the performance in person, which is ok because I had a great time doing what I was doing, ydy, everyone has a different camp, etc BUT still why can’t I be everywhere at once?
This was so lovely to watch and hear, though. I miss all of camp. Also the music, what, fantastic.
WHO STOLE MY HAT
This made me cry.
