In addition to the music and a stage set right in the sand at the edge of the ocean, Mayan Holidaze also offered attendees multiple chances to engage in activities and excursions with their favorite musicians. For the Disco Biscuits' Aron Magner, that meant leading a five-hour expedition to the Cenotes of the Yucatan for a scuba diving adventure that none of the participants will ever forget.
"It was so surreal, it was like some serious Discovery Channel s---," Magner tells Spinner. "It was definitely unlike any other diving experience that I've ever had." And as far as playing the role of group leader for a bunch of fans, Magner says it was genuinely a true bonding experience. "Nobody really let on that they were Biscuits fans until later on in the day when we were all best friends," he says. "Once we were heading back to the resort, everybody felt comfortable with each other -- and definitely with me -- that all of the sudden everything started getting whipped out. Like, 'What are the chances that you could play a 'Radiator' tonight?'"
While the Biscuits never did honor that request, Magner said the adventure left a lasting impression. "Definitely some solid, solid peeps made some new friends on that excursion and I had a really fun time." By his own admission, the same could be said about Mayan Holidaze at large.
