There was once a time when music was truly powerful and influential. It was remarkably genius and beautiful. So creative and different from band to band, yet there was a sense of togetherness that the artists had which made them even more of an influence to the world. It was a time when artists were more worried about making great music than making money, but, of course, with great music comes dedicated fans. Take the Grateful Dead for instance. This band was arguably the most successful touring band of all time who, for the most part, had no real backing from major labels or anyone else for that matter, except for their fans, the “Deadheads” the greatest fans in history! Then, of course you have the Beatles, who many believe are still the greatest band ever! The list goes on and on. The 60’s and 70’s supplied us with some of the greatest music of all time…some of the greatest thinkers of all times…some of the greatest movements of all time! Artists stood for something; a better way of living, a truly “free” nation.
It has been said that the most powerful tool is the human voice. It is the plan of The Haight Ashbury Experience to bring back the voices of the greatest musicians of all time and combining them with our voice…combining their genius with our genius. We plan to combine the most influential music then with the most influential music now…combine the Hippie with the Hip Hop!

Always a poet and a deep thinker; always in search of a new sound--Scott Al-Tall was inspired by the creativity, the idealism and, most of all, the great songs that prevailed during some of the most life-changing cultural and political movements in U.S. history. His drive to comingle influential music of the past with the most influential music of the present, gave birth to what the band known as The Haight Ashbury Experience now calls "Hippie Hop".
The Haight Ashbury Experience consists of the following members....
