John Mayer Rocks the Vote and Goes Green


During his summer tour which is already in progress, John Mayer will be "rocking" the vote as he goes green. John who made Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People list for 2007, will not only have voter's information booths set up during his concerts to encourage concert attendees to register,but he will also be "greening up" his tour environment with the help of Reverb.

At the end of last month, he announced that his summer tour would be a darker shade of green thanks to a partnership with Reverb. The organization is an environmental non profit founded by Guster guitarist/vocalist, Adam Gardner and his environmentalist wife, Lauren Sullivan. To date, they’ve taken groups such as Dave Matthews Band, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sheryl Crow, Barenaked Ladies, Avril Lavigne, Jack Johnson and many others and transformed their tours into earth-friendly events.
