    Its a big fest, so there will be a lot more.

    Like four or five of my top touring bands are represented, just in this initial lineup.
    Some of my absolute favorites
    Phish
    Ween
    UM
    JRAD
    Lettuce


    Vulfpeck and Turkuaz are EASILY two of my up and coming funk faves.
    White Denim is one of the best indie(ish) rock bands out there.

    Good God.

    My turn to ramble.

    I ran in the same circles as Susan Tedeschi. We are the same age and grew up in adjacent small towns. A lot of her relatives, including one of my teachers lived in my town. They were well known because the family owned a convenience store chain that was everywhere. We have a lot of mutual friends including two brothers who are in a band that played at her high school reunion. Now they are in a typical cover band and imagine playing a high school reunion and Susan Fucking Tedeschi is there? Not only is she talented but she's married to one of the greatest slide guitarists in the world. Well not only did she show up, she got up and sang with them. It was the thrill of a lifetime for my hack musician friends.

    Anyway, I'm sure Susan and I crossed paths many times throughout our years though I can't say I know her. I like to think I probably hooked up with her one drunken night. In fact, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    It's ok, you can invoke the name Derek Trucks. :smile:

    I saw them a few weeks ago. Much different than Derek's stuff, but still way enjoyable.

    Susan was wearing a skirt above the knees and was lookin good too :hump:

    I was gonna take a piss, but Susan started singing Angel of Montgomery with only the organ player. She has the right amount of grit in her voice and was perfect

    I saw them at Americanarama tour, where he played with Wilco and Dylan. It was right after Dylan released a killer album (Tempest). Still hurts to see live, though.
