Every year moe. looks at the Summer Camp Music Festival as a chance to give their fans something special, and this year they decided to pull out all the stops when it came to debuting and busting out rare covers. Over the course of a truly epic 45 minutes, moe. covered songs from two of music’s biggest legends and one of their own classics for a mind boggling three song run.We’ve already shown you their last night bookends renditions of The Who‘s “Baba O’Riley” and Cream‘s “White Room” but we saved the biggest and wildest for last. With Kyle Hollingsworth from String Cheese Incident on hand to deliver some stellar support on keys, moe. gave an impressive reading of the Pink Floyd song “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” from the seminal Wish You Were Here album.The cheers that greeted the opening strains of “Shine On” grew all the louder as the band then segued into their own dark masterpiece “Opium,” always a crowd favorite. Finishing their ten minute plus version of “Opium,” the band showed they weren’t done with Hollingsworth or special covers from classic bands by sliding directly into a ripping version of the seminal Talking Heads tune, “Making Flippy Floppy”! Al Schnier did a credible David Byrne impression, and the rest of the band showed how a Talking Heads jam-band would have sounded.Our own Rex Thomson was on hand and made sure to set up near the soundboard to catch as much of the amazing light show from Preston Hoffman as possible. Making imaginative use of image mapping technology and dozens of moving stands Hoffman delivered one of the best visual displays ever seen at Summer Camp. Another tip of the hat goes to moe. sound engineer and all around handyman Steve Young, who set up rear channels in the concert field to deliver a full quadraphonic sound-scape to really take the psychedelic experience to the next level. Check out the 45 minutes of musical madness below!

Earlier in the summer, Yonder Mountain String Band delighted fans at their Northwest String Summit performance with a full-fledged tribute to Pink Floyd and their seminal album, Animals. Since that July showing, Yonder has been steadily releasing a stream of live videos from the performance, capturing the band’s perfect takes on the album’s famed songs like “Pigs On The Wing,” “Dogs,” and more.Today comes the final release in the video series, as YMSB tackles the hypnotic Floyd classic “Sheep.” Watch the full video below, as shared by the band earlier today. Enjoy!
Earlier in the week, The New Mastersounds had bad news to share with friends and fans. The band announced that their original bassist of eighteen years, Pete Shand, had developed a spinal condition as a direct result of playing the bass and was in need of immediate surgery. Bedridden and unable to fly home to Europe, Shand was able to schedule an emergency operation for Thursday, though the medical costs would be immense, and without a $40,000 deposit, doctors were unwilling to go through with the essential procedure. In a happy turn of events, the band reached out to their fans and the music community, setting up a GoFundMe and hoping to be able to take a chunk out of the costs so that Shand could go through with the surgery. Showcasing the power that people have when they ban together, The New Mastersounds’ family, friends, and fans raised their donation target of $40K (and then some) within two days—happily, Shand will receive his essential operation tomorrow, and we’re wishing him the speediest and safest recovery process.While at the beginning of the week, at a point, things were looking bleak, The New Mastersounds are riding a high after the successful crowdsourcing campaign. In addition to sharing a grateful thank-you note from Pete last night, this morning, the band had more good news to deliver to fans. After Shand clocks in a few weeks of recovery and much-needed rest, The New Mastersounds will return to the road this fall, and we cannot be more excited by the news. The tour kicks off in Asheville, North Carolina, on October 26th at Salvage Station. From there, the band heads west, with dates in Texas and Las Vegas ahead of their Halloween show at Winston’s Beach Club in San Diego, California, where they’ll meet up with Kung Fu for the rest of the tour. After a string of shows in California and Nevada, including one in San Francisco’s Fillmore also featuring support from That 1 Guy in addition to Kung Fu, The New Mastersounds will finish out their tour in the Northwest. Hitting Portland on November 7th, Eugene on November 8th, and Seattle on November 10th, the tour wraps up with a date at The Domino Room in Bend, Oregon.Tickets are available for purchase on The New Mastersounds’ website here. You can also read the full thank-you note from Pete below as well as check out the full dates for The New Mastersounds’ upcoming tour![Photo: Jeremy Scott]Hello Everyone,Pete here, I just wanted to say a big “thank you” to everyone from myself and my children, Ashton and Nico, for your help and kindness. It is very humbling for me to see that so many of you took the time to help me out at this difficult time.I will have my surgery on Thursday morning and will be in recovery for a few weeks before heading out on tour again. I look forward to getting back out there and bringing joy and happiness through our music.Once again, massive thanks to all my friends out there for helping make this happen.Peace Always,PeteTHU OCT 26 – SALVAGE STATION – ASHEVILLE, NCSAT OCT 28 – STANLEY’S FAMOUS PIT BBQ – TYLER, TXSUN OCT 29 – MOHAWK AUSTIN – AUSTIN, TXMON OCT 30 – BEAUTY BAR – LAS VEGAS, NVTUE OCT 31 – WINSTON’S BEACH CLUB – SAN DIEGO, CA *WED NOV 01 – THE TERAGRAM BALLROOM – LOS ANGELES, CA *FRI NOV 03 – THE FILLMORE – SAN FRANCISCO, CA *^SAT NOV 04 – JAM CELLARS BALLROOM – NAPA, CA *SUN NOV 05 – BLUEBIRD LOFT – STATELINE, NV *MON NOV 06 – LOST ON MAIN – CHICO, CATUE NOV 07 – WONDER BALLROOM – PORTLAND, OR *WED NOV 08 – HIFI MUSIC HALL – EUGENE, OR *THU NOV 09 – NEPTUNE THEATRE – SEATTLE WA *FRI NOV 10 – THE DOMINO ROOM – BEND, OR ** with Kung Fu^ with That 1 Guy
Last night, Dead & Company kicked off their two-show stint in New York City at the world-renowned Madison Square Garden with the lineup they’ve been honing since their first shows at The Garden in 2015: original Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Billy Kreutzmann, and Mickey Hart as well as a first-class supporting cast comprised of bassist decorated bassist Oteil Burbridge (Aquarium Rescue Unit, Allman Brothers Band), skillfully nimble keyboardist Jeff Chimenti (Ratdog, Furthur) and, of course, pop star/blues prodigy-turned-Grateful six-string slinger John Mayer on lead guitar.Two Years After Their First Shows, Dead & Co Will Return To The Garden A Band Evolved [Videos]The band sauntered onstage as the awaiting audience erupted with cheers, echoing throughout the spacious stadium. The distinctive opening note of “Shakedown Street” prompted a resounding roar of appreciation. In typical Dead & Co fashion, this rendition of “Shakedown Street” was played at half tempo, slow and casual, but the lyrics rang true to the core. “Don’t tell me this town ain’t got no heart, you just gotta poke around…”Watch pro-shot video of the “Shakedown Street” opener via the band’s YouTube account and nugs.tv:The sextet followed with “The Greatest Story Ever Told” with Bob Weir coming to life on the Dead & Company debut of his own original song, playing passionately throughout. John Mayer then took the reins and lead vocals for an upbeat “Bertha”, before Bobby once again returned to the spotlight for a stirring and beautiful version of his own song “Cassidy”. The song was played slowly and deliberately, but got especially weird and jam-tastic before the last verse. The final notes rang out and faded away to silence, at which point Bobby saluted the audience with a “Good Evening, New York!”Watch “The Greatest Story Ever Told”, “Bertha”, “They Love Each Other”, and “Cumberland Blues” below, courtesy of btragal: Load remaining images Photo: Matt Rea Dead & Company Reunite For ‘Band Together Bay Area’ [Pro-Shot Video]Next, the band kept it moving with another Dead & Co debut–a spirited version of Jesse Fuller original and longtime Grateful Dead live staple “Beat it On Down the Line”, with Bobby taking lead vocals but Oteil, Mayer, and Chimenti all contributing with back-up vocals. Without beating around the bush, the band then progressed into a version of cherished Garcia/Hunter tune “They Love Each Other” with John Mayer contributing smoothly satisfying lead vocals. To conclude the first set, the band delved into a high octane “Cumberland Blues” with Weir singing lead, but the song’s MVP was the ridiculous Jeff Chimenti solo on keys. The set lasted just a little more than an hour, and left the feeling that the real heat was soon to follow.After set break, the band maintained the energy with another Garcia/Hunter favorite, “China Cat Sunflower”, with Weir on lead vocals. True to tradition, the band segued into the fan-favorite Dead-adopted traditional “I Know You Rider” with John Mayer singing lead on the first verse and Bob Weir taking over for the remainder. Chimenti took another solo near the end, tearing the place apart with his cascading keyboard runs.Watch pro-shot video of the second set opener via the band’s YouTube account and nugs.tv:Watch “Terrapin Station” below, courtesy of btragal:After a brief pause, the band slipped into a haunting rendition of the rarely-played “Ship of Fools”, sung by John Mayer with some vital and pristine vocal assistance from Burbridge. Oteil did a spectacular job singing on this tune, imbuing it with his trademark soulfully-sincere swagger. The band kept the fire blazing with a gracefully executed version of “Terrapin” with John Mayer starting singing “Lady With A Fan” before passing the baton to Weir for the “Terrapin Station” release.Watch “Terrapin Station” below, courtesy of btragal:The audience was held enraptured as most of the band shuffled off the stage to cool off while the Rhythm Devils held down the percussion beats. The primality of “Drums” evolved into the transcendental sounds of “Space” led by mad scientist Mickey Hart and his own unique invention “The Beam.” The band resumed positions while the Rhythm Devils continued to wail and thump, and morphed seamlessly into the exquisite tale of longing, another Jerry heart-wrenching tune, “Standing on the Moon”, sung beautifully and emotional by Weir.Dead & Company To Perform On Two Episodes Of The Late Show With Stephen ColbertNext, the band launched into an outstanding rendition of “The Other One” which would prove to be the improvisational highlight of the evening, including a heavily jammed intro and an immaculate peaking Mayer solo at the back end. The band concluded the second set with “Casey Jones”, with Mayer on lead vocals and Bob Weir and the rest of the band adding choral textures to the refrain. Appropriately, the song picked up tempo every time Casey Jones is “driving that train, high on cocaine”, and by the end–several times the original speed–the musical train had picked up enough momentum to have every single member of the audience spinning, jiving, and dancing wildly.John Mayer Pens Grateful Salute To Jerry Garcia Ahead Of Tonight’s Dead & Co Tour OpenerThe band jaunted offstage for a quick break before returning to stage, briefly teasing “Not Fade Away” before Weir took the Sunday crowd to church with Dead spiritual staple, “Samson and Delilah”. Weir performed the song with particularly impregnable rockstar bravado; When he’s wearing his glasses, you know he he did his homework. The song erupted and the audience responded raucously to the chorus, “If I had my way… I would tear this whole building down….” The band once more began to walk offstage, but again returned to finish the night in an upbeat style with a sing-along rendition of Warren Zevon’s “Werewolves of London”. John Mayer took the first half of the lead vocals, and Bobby meandered his way through the second half as a Mayer solo pushed the song into hyperdrive. All in all, the band came out ready and able to open this tour with the style, precision, professionalism, and passion that this music inspires in so many people all over the world.Thanks to rdeal1999, you can watch “Werewolves of London” below:Dead & Company will be back at Madison Square Garden this Tuesday, November 14th before continuing their tour to Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on November 16th.

Yesterday, Cloud 9 Adventures‘ annual Strings & Sol Mexican bluegrass destination event kicked off with performances from Greensky Bluegrass and Yonder Mountain String Band, in addition to a late-night Mimi‘s On The Beach set at the Palapa. Greensky got the 2017 festivities underway with an appropriately beach-y, carefree set that featured, among other things, a take on “Broke Mountain Breakdown” that used the song’s ever-changing narrative to incorporate 1993 global dance phenomenon “The Macarena”, dance moves and all. Watch a short clip of Greensky’s “Macarena” below via Instagram user @smashleywhite: Relive Greensky Bluegrass’ Tremendous Day & Night Sets At Suwannee Hulaween [Videos]Greensky also surprised their Mexico “Campers” with a cover of Widespread Panic‘s “Bust It Big”. Recently, a member of the band’s Facebook fan group, Camp Greensky, had posed the question of whether or not the band had ever covered a WSP tune, and with the “Bust It Big” cover, it appears the band took note and cleared up that question. You can watch footage of Greensky’s Strings & Sol rendition of “Bust It Big” below, via the Strings & Sol Facebook page (begins 5 minutes in):Strings & Sol continues today with a poolside Greensky set in the afternoon, followed by a sunset show from The Infamous Stringdusters, full performances from Leftover Salmon and Railroad Earth, and a late night Roc Watson set featuring Bryan Sutton & Friends.

New York’s famous music fan group known as The Freaks have organized an incredible new tradition with their Inaugural Holiday Jam. The event, which is set to take place on December 21 at Littlefield in Brooklyn, NY, has a heavy focus on charity, with proceeds benefiting We Make Noise and a charity auction and raffle filled with tons of fun experiences to potentially win. The group has even set up a special ticket link that automatically gives $0.25 of your purchase directly to We Make Noise.The Freaks has grown from a longstanding music-sharing listserv into an impactful musical community in and around the New York area. As a result, the Freak’s Action Network was born, branching off from the original group as a way to create opportunities for the group to help their local scene or get involved in some charitable efforts. This Holiday Jam is the result of the work of the Freak’s Action Network, who are powering this event by securing some amazing raffle and auction prizes, and by booking awesome musical talent.Musical Masters Young & Old Celebrate The Allman Brothers In Brooklyn [Pro-Shot Video/Audio]The group has long been known for championing local musicians and helping to elevate them through their shared passion for music. As such, the group booked three stellar acts that showcase the best and brightest of the local New York music scene.

The Inaugural Holiday Jam will be headlined by recent GRAMMY Award nominee and former Gregg Allman Band musical director Scott Sharrard and his powerful Brickyard Band.In terms of the charity auction, there are two elements: a silent auction and a raffle. The raffle is being handled online and does not require you to attend the event to purchase a ticket. This allows anyone to bid on the items that are up for grabs, which, in turn, helps raise more money for We Make Noise, which will take home 100% of the proceeds from raffle sales. There are a ton of awesome potential things to win, such as a one year Classic Fish Membership to Le Poisson Rouge and posters by artists, such as AJ Masthay, John Warner, James Flames, Justin Santora and more. Several pairs of tickets to many great concerts in the New York area will also be on the line, such as The New Mastersounds post-Phish late night show on New Year’s Eve, Greensky Bluegrass at the Playstation Theatre on 1/27, Marcus King Band at Gramercy Theatre on 12/28, and all three nights of Joe Russo’s Almost Dead at the Capitol Theatre on 1/12-1/14/18. You can even win the opportunity to hang with Karina Rykman herself and down a seafood tower at Lure Fishbar in downtown Manhattan.Names will be drawn at random for each prize on the day after the event (December 22), and as a result, you do not have to be at the venue to win one of the available prizes.
