Grateful Fest provides a truly unique concert experience

As I watched children dressed as Grateful Dead bears dance across the stage, I was sure the majority of the crowd around me was on some psychoactive substance. It was the Fourth of July, and I opted to spend it in a less traditional way — at a psychedelic music festival.
The festival was known as “Grateful Fest,” and the venue was Nelson Ledges Quarry Park in Garrettsville, Ohio. The moment I’m recalling unfolded as Melvin Seals and JGB, the Jerry Garcia Band, jammed on stage.

There are great rewards to those who arrive early for the first ever run of Phish shows at Randall’s. The forecast is set to be partly cloudy in the 80s all weekend making for a great excuse to check out The Freezer.

Q&A with Steve Kimock – Playing in the band with Bob Weir & Ratdog this weekend

Steve Kimock:

It all happened pretty accidentally. I was growing up in Pennsylvania and trying to learn to play the guitar. I felt like if I applied myself to it, I’d actually get good at it. My natural fascination with the Beatles got me to first pick up the guitar. But I wasn’t, like, a Deadhead or anything. It wasn’t really what I was listening to or involved in that social scene. I was real into the Allman Brothers and Johnny Winter, but not so much the Grateful Dead.

Folkie Keller Williams brings out the funk

Keller Williams' latest CD, "Funk," is being touted as a surprise album. Williams is known for playing acoustic music that often has leaned toward folk.

For Williams, the "Funk" album, which was culled from 2012 concerts with a band that includes bass, drums, keyboards and a pair of female singers, takes him back to his core influences and music that has always informed his acoustic guitar playing.
