I just think it would be so cool to see Furthur and then mosey on down and see Iron Maiden. I love diversity in one place like that! We are actually catching Maiden and Rush this summer but still I'd love to hit that festival.

Hey, I'm gonna Run for the Hills

I'm a big fan of Iron Maiden...for a long time. Sounds like fun, maybe they should call it the Blues Metal Fusion Fest lol

Not exactly

a "Blues" fest... but Ottawa ClassicRockFest just doesn't have the same ring, does it?

Ottawa Bluesfest

Man that festival looks awesome. That has to be one of the most diverse line ups I have ever seen. Rush and Iron Maiden? I'm jealous. Wish we could get something like that in my neck of the woods.

Furthur comes to CANADA

HolyGosh... Furthur just announced a new show... July 7th in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada!!!! Holy crap, that's only 3.5 hours away and on my side of the border! Whoa, kids. Bluesfest is gonna be transformed. Got some coordinating to do.

Thanks Furthur!

Dance little/big sister, dance

Hey Critter

What a treat! Sounds like Wanee was a great way to check out the bands. I'd love to dance to those 7 Walkers and the Rhythm Devils, but not so ready for the 9h car ride to get to the Vibes. Last year we made that length of trip to Rothbury but I don't think it's in our cards this year, especially if Furthur are playing in Buffalo! We'll have to be our own rhythm devils for now, which is definitely doable.

Hey Rosa, I'm one of those dancing instigators who can really stir the pot. I bet we'd cut a rug! Thanks for your story.

Peace,
K

You know, I don't dance ever - there was a piano player at our wedding - no dancing! I just don't dance. My Dad never danced, and I joked about how we wouldn't dance together at my wedding. But we evolve. I went to some recent weddings with DJs and asked if they played any Dead. They told me no way, cause you can't dance to the Dead. Turns out, that's the only thing I can dance to, is the music at a Dead show (or Furthur, or Ratdog). Silly DJs! Too bad I didn't realize this in time for my wedding (25 years ago) but better late than never! But at a Dead show I can't not do some crazy little kinda of dance - I mean, you really can't just sit still, can you? It turns out that I certainly can't!

Hey KRS10~Rythym Devils!

Gosh I love what they are doing as well. I just saw both Bobby and Billy @ the Wanee Music Festival....they played very, very well. Both of them! I was more impressed with Billy's 7 Walkers feat. Papa Mali, they played flawlessly! Bobby was very, very good and relaxed (it almost seemed like someone dos-ed him b4 the show, hehehehehe) but the set was TOO short IMHO.

As far as the Rythym Devils....Check this festival out where they are playing if you are coming down...
