10 Things Not To Miss At LOCKN’ FESTIVAL

I am headed at this moment down to the 6th Annual LOCKN’ Music Festival and I cannot wait! This is my 3rd trip down to what is loveling known as ‘The Farm’ in Arrington, Virginia. This festival is the one I look most forward to every year because of its primary focus on jam bands and funk; moreover, the philosophy of the whole festival focuses on music improvisation and collaboration with artists that you wouldn’t usually see together. This festival’s brainchild is Peter Shapiro who is the founder of some iconic, cutting-edge venues like Brooklyn Bowl and The Capitol Theatre, not to mention he is the iconoclast that got the remaining Grateful Dead members (along with Trey Anastasio) to curate their final performances together dubbed “Fare Thee Well.” My favorite hashtag I have ever created is #peteshapiroismyhero and if you have ever been to any of his events or venues…you would know why!

Dead & Company Delivers a Barn Burner in NYC & Honors Chris Charucki

On Friday night, Dead & Company brought their summer tour to Flushing Meadows, Queens to kick off a two-night stand at Citi Field (baseball stadium and home to the NY Mets Stadium).   After exclusively playing amphitheaters through the first stellar nine dates of their tour, the six-piece ensemble played their first stadium show of the tour, returning to the home of the New York Mets for the third year in a row.  The super group continued to carry on the legacy of the Grateful Dead’s music and songbook with six musicians who make up this all-star group: Bob WeirBilly KreutzmannMickey HartJohn MayerOteil Burbridge, and Jeff Chimenti. No doubt, this weekend was a family affair in so many ways. I was lucky to get backstage passes both nights, so I got a bird’s eye view of the fact that every single one of the immediate family of each of the band members were present and provided a support system while the band kicked out two of the best shows they have played back to back in no doubt their largest stadium tour in Dead & Company history.
