LOVE-O-RAMA Records is a different kind of "record label". We're a touring and entertainment collective. We look for creative ways to use our resources to spread the love. We look for resources to use in creative ways to spread the love. We spread the love by using our resources in creative ways. We need help. We want to help. We want to travel. We want to play in your bars, cafes, nightclubs, back yards, weddings, funerals, parties, libraries, schools, pool halls, swimming pools, and on top of your ice cream wagons. We want you to be in the show too. We love dancing, singing, playing, watching, dreaming, and laughing with you. We want to see what you've got. We want you to see what we've got. We're gonna love you. And you're gonna love us too. It's a LOVE-O-RAMA!
