Five Reasons Why It’s Always Better To Be Part Of A Devoted Fan Base Community

first_imgChances are, if you follow Live for Live Music, that you’re also a part of a devoted fan base community for one – or many – beloved bands. Though bands like The Beatles and Led Zeppelin were among the first to spur massive legions of devotees, there was a noticeable shift when the Grateful Dead took their turn in the spotlight.The Dead inspired something in their fans like no artist had ever done before. They completely threw out the rule book for the music industry, letting fans bootleg their live performances for free. In turn, the fans travelled with the band across the country and around the world, trading art, food, drugs, or any other commodity just for another opportunity to see their favorites up on stage.Since then, countless bands have followed that model, inspiring new and exciting communities surrounding the almighty musical expression. Lots of these are direct jam descendants – like Phish, The String Cheese Incident, Widespread Panic, moe., Umphrey’s McGee and countless others – but even groups like Radiohead, LCD Soundsystem and more instill the same feeling in their fan groups.Without further ado, here are five reasons that finding these fan base communities is greatly superior than any other fan experience.1. You get to be a part of a community that just gets “it” – whatever that it may be.It starts when your favorite band announces tour dates. Even if they aren’t nearby, you instantly feel the compulsion to hit every stop along the way. Though money and time are limiting factors, you find yourself booking flights and hotels to visit new parts of the world for this musical experience. You make plans with friends, face off against Ticketmaster, and count down the days until this magical show. You can face all the ridicule in the world from family members, coworkers, etc. Once those lights go down, it’s all worthwhile.It’s an indescribable feeling when all of these plans and workings come to fruition. Fortunately, you’re in a crowd of thousands, and everyone has been through the same experience together. As the Dead sang, “strangers stopping strangers, just to shake their hands.” There’s no better feeling than being in a crowd full of people who just understand.2. You can express your creativity within that community.When you’ve found such an understanding group of like-minded individuals, naturally you want to share your passion with them. Fortunately, there are so many creative channels to share in the groove. Artwork is perhaps the most obvious form, with some bands even encouraging live painters to create mid-performance. Some make clothing, jewelry, and other graphics, supporting their community all the while. Some of us even write articles to support our favorites bands! Even the names that spring up within these groups are creative – the Deadheads and Spreadheads and Phans and moe.rons and beyond. The love is limitless.Chances are, if your enthusiasm for the community shines through in your creativity, others will immediately identify with it. It’s a blessing to belong.3. The artist will almost always interact and foster the community’s growth.As people continue to find themselves in these loyal groups, the bands themselves often acknowledge and encourage its growth. The wholehearted appreciation from these groups naturally spur from a like-minded appreciation from the musicians, and gratitude is the name of the game. Whether its the bands allowing tapers to distribute their music, or even the family-style festival events that these bands create for their fans, there’s a certain validation in loving something that loves you in return.With social media bringing people closer together than ever before, the possibilities for real connections between artists and fans are endless. Thank you to everyone who helps foster this love!4. You can do really great things as a group of people.With these groups full of encouraging people, it’s no surprise that many of them organize philanthropic events. Many artists get involved themselves, helping to lead their fans to charitable acts. A great example is The Polish Ambassador, a musician who regularly organizes “Action Day” outreach programs in various communities. Saxophonist/producer GRiZ runs his annual GRiZmas benefits, and groups like Phish, Twiddle, Widespread Panic and countless others all have fan-based non-profit groups. The Mockingbird Foundation – associated with Phish fans – has raised nearly $1 million for local music education programs in its twenty year existence.As Mickey Hart regularly says after performances, “all of this good energy that you feel, take it and bring it into the world.” I’m paraphrasing, but the message is truly important.5. Concerts are just better with family.At the end of the day, one of the main reasons we love live music is because it is a shared experience. There are countless musicians who are extremely talented, but it takes time, creativity and desire to spark a full-fledged community of fans. With the right dedication, the experience for fans is truly an elevated one. There’s nothing that compares to sharing in a magical musical moment with the complete stranger standing next to you. Over time, these groups feel more and more like family. So don’t be shy about your love for an artist; get out there and dance! There ain’t no place I’d rather be.last_img read more

Swimming at AquachobeeUsually, it’s tough to find a good shady spot to cool down at a music festival…Not at Okeechobee! At Okeechobee’s brilliant Aquachobee area the festival provides the ultimate ability to sunbathe and play games in the sand & sun and then cool off by jumping in the lake, all located in the Moonlight Oasis area of the festival. Okeechobee adds to the island vibes by building tons of palapas and selling fruity drinks, providing the ultimate beachfront experience. Make sure to bring a towel & floatie to join the fun!2. Diverse Lineup With Once In A Lifetime PerformancesOkeechobee’s lineup is stacked, with some of the best artists in live music. Heavy hitters like Kings of Leon, Bassnectar, Flume, Pretty Lights, and Usher & The Roots top the bill, but this fest boasts an excellent lineup throughout the roster. You can find The Revivalists at Okeechobee, as well as Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, GRiZ, Galactic, Moon Taxi and BADBADNOTGOOD.

After last year’s epic PoWoW! with Miguel, Win Butler of Arcade Fire, George Porter Jr., Zigaboo Modeliste, Kamasi Washington, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Eric Krasno and Neal Evans, one can only imagine the exciting lineup that’s being put together for this year’s mashup celebration. Also, the festival offers the Okeechobee Gospel Soul Experience, which will feature the Blind Boys of Alabama, Allen Stone, and more in 2017, making for one of the most unique musical offerings at any major festival.3. The Location’s Natural ParadiseOkeechobee takes place on one of the most beautiful festival venues in the country. With plush grass, access to water at Aquachobee, beautiful trees encircling the Grove, and a surreal vibe permeating the grounds, it’s easy to understand why 30,000 people flocked to the first year of Okeechobee. Destination festivals should feel like they are removed from reality, and walking through Okeechobee’s site truly feels like a dream-state experience.

Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Recruits Jeff Chimenti And Jon Shaw For Excellent Green River Set [Full Audio]

first_imgThis past Sunday night, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead made a weekend-closing appearance at Green River Festival in Greenfield, MA, the outfit’s first show since their set at Candler Park Festival on June 3rd (and their 113th show overall). The set featured a pair of top-notch substitutes, with bassist Jon Shaw filling in for Dave Dreiwitz, who is on tour with Ween, and Dead & Company keyboardist Jeff Chimenti handling keyboard duties while Marco Benevento is occupied with his solo band.The single-set show saw the band in fine form as always, despite the time off and roster shakeup, as the band flowed through their set with barely any breaks in the music. After a brief tuning/soundcheck “jam,” the band kicked into “Loser,” followed by “Feel Like A Stranger,” both benefiting from some fun and focused improvisation. As “Stranger” petered out, a pretty surf-rock jam emerged that hinted at “They Love Each Other” before moving into a beautiful “Row Jimmy.”“Alligator” came next, and made its way into a “Slipknot!” jam for a moment before the band steered into “Franklin’s Tower.” “Mr. Charlie” came next, followed by a grooving “Mississippi Half Step” and a shape-shifting run through the first verse of “The Other One.” Instead of finishing the classic Bob Weir tune, the band launched off into the cosmos, touching subtly on “Dark Star” and featuring a slew of robotic tones from Chimenti before moving into a brief taste of “He’s Gone” and , eventually, landing in “Ramble On Rose”The sing-alongs continued with “Good Lovin,’” featuring a full-band “Feel Like A Stranger” tease and a “Ruben & Cherise” tease from Tom Hamilton. A “Let It Grow” jam grew out of “Good Lovin’, before laying down roots in a celebratory “Going Down The Road Feeling Bad.” An instrumental-only take on “We Bid You Goodnight” closed out the set proper, before a bouncing “Not Fade Away” encore capped the performance.You can listen to full audio of Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s Green River set below, via archive.org user nico11104.

Greensky Bluegrass Welcomes Marco Benevento For Waterwheel’s 20th In Coney Island [Videos]

first_imgThe remainder of the set included a slew of Grateful Dead teases, including multiple allusions to “Shakedown Street,” as well as “Help On The Way” and “Let It Grow.” “Old Barns” seamlessly segued into “Kerosene” to close out the set, before Benevento came out for a final time to join Greensky as they encored with one of their most popular covers: Bruce Springsteen‘s “Atlantic City” (which as usually hemmed more closely to The Band‘s cover of the tune than The Boss’s original). As the Brooklyn get-down came to an end, everyone headed back to Manhattan for the final three Phish shows of Baker’s Dozen run. If the past ten shows are any indication of what the finale will bring, this last weekend of PH is not one to miss! Greensky got the show on the road with no time to waste, opening with a monstrous “Windshield” into “Burn Them.” Paul Hoffman and Dave Bruzza’s powerful vocal harmonies rang out loud, while Anders Beck and Michael Arlen Bont traded off fiery solos as the rain pattered on the white-tented amphitheater roof. “Train Junkie” was the highlight of set one, showcasing the band’s versatility and ability to bring their tasteful take on bluegrass to any corner of the country. The band weaved in and out of fan favorites before inviting Benevento up to help close out the first set with a 3-song stretch of “Lose My Way”>”Working on a Building”>”Handle With Care”.After a 30-minute set break, Greensky came back out for a jam-packed second set, kicking things off with “The Four” into “Big Shot,” which included a Happy Birthday shout-out to B. Moore. Marco came back out midway through the second set for “I’d Probably Kill You,” before going into the deepest jam of the night with “Leap Year”, backed by an unrelenting Mike Devol holding things down on the upright-bass. The addition of Benevento on keys provided the perfect touch for a special night, benefiting a foundation that has given so much back to the Phish community and beyond over the last 20 years. For the last off-night of Phish’s Baker’s Dozen run, friends and phamily gathered at Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk to celebrate The Waterwheel Foundation’s 20th anniversary. Brooklyn’s own Marco Benevento got the night started off with his currently-touring trio, bringing his punchy indie rock to the breezy Brooklyn boardwalk for a short but sweet 45 minute set. Just as fans had hoped and expected, as Marco gave his final bow he announced that he would be joining Greensky Bluegrass momentarily for segments of their headlining set.center_img For a list of upcoming Greensky Bluegrass tour dates, head to the band’s website.

Watch Turkuaz Bring The Funk To Music City With These New Videos

first_imgTurkuaz has been bringing the heat and the funk to a chilly Southeast, and their stop in Nashville’s Exit/In last Friday was no exception. They followed a stop in Atlanta on Thursday with a barnburner of a show in Nashville. Though their opening act had to cancel their short run, the color-coded funksters were more than happy to expand their headlining slot to a two-set “Evening With” extravaganza.Twiddle Welcomes Turkuaz’s Shira Elias & Taz Niederauer For Capitol Theatre Closer [Videos]Playing sold out shows and packing venues across the country, Turkuaz is building momentum.

Trey Anastasio Celebrates Carini’s 20th Anniversary, Solo Debuts 2 Phish Tunes In Charlotte

first_imgOn Saturday evening, Trey Anastasio played the second to last show of his ongoing solo acoustic/storytime tour at Knight Theater in Charlotte, NC. The Phish guitarist took center stage and welcomed fans with an inspirational “Theme From The Bottom”, which led into the recently-revived Phish original, Round Room‘s “Anything But Me”, marking the 16th time the song has been played live since its debut in 2003. “Sweet Dreams Melinda” from Trey Anastasio’s 2005 Shine record came next, showing off the songwriter’s ability to capture an audience with another original that typically gets the full-band treatment. “Always gotta play a song about the town that you’re in,” he jokes about the line “Went from Charlotte.”The vibe was immediately escalated by the opening notes of “Sample In A Jar,” and again by Trey Anastasio Band‘s “Everything’s Right”, which showed off the guitarist’s intricate playing and eventually led into the first portion of “storytelling.” After telling the audience about his space travels to the venue, and poking fun at the wild nightlife he encountered at his arrival at around 1:30 am the night before, Anastasio goes into a hilarious story from 2003 about when Phish had a show in Cincinnati, and stayed up partying all night between gigs. Trey and Phish keyboardist Page McConnell were both on the “late schedule”, Trey explained, meaning they’d stay up later than the rest of the band to entertain friends, even traveling with black duct tape for the curtains when the sun would come up in the morning. One time around 9:00 am, Trey was left alone and suddenly heard sirens and fire trucks that would soon be parked outside his window. “Oh no, damn! I KNOW this is me! Whatever it is, it has to be me,” Trey thought to himself. Once the building was evacuated, he found Page, who was also up late partying, and told him about the anxious thoughts he was having. “I was sure this was my fault,” he told Page, to which Page responded, “Oh my god, I had the exact same thought! I was SURE it was your fault!”. The audience appreciated the honest story, and the music resumed.Another solo original came next, “Architect,” which was heavily featured on TAB tour in 2017.  A call-and-response “Twist” followed–highlighted by a spooky guitar section that lasted over 3 minutes–and led into “Mountains in the Mist” and “Lifeboy”. “Summer of ’89” was dedicated to his wife, Sue, who served as the inspiration for the song. Trey took the opportunity to tell the audience about his proposal to Sue, which took place on a long hike through the mountains when he realized he wanted to marry her but didn’t have a ring–so instead used blades of grass to weave one. The song has only been performed 7 times since its debut in 2010, getting the most attention on the last two solo tours. “The Inlaw Josie Wales”, “Limb by Limb”, and “Cavern” came next, as the audience couldn’t help but participate in the familiar lyrics of the two songs that followed the instrumental.Up next was “Rise/Come Together”, a song that entered the rotation in 2017. From there, Trey tells a beautiful story about his mother, whom he describes as a “badass”. One time in Marco Island, Florida, while pushing a baby carriage, a man took stride in her direction and forcefully pushed her and the carriage aside on a long narrow sidewalk. Angered by the experience, Trey and his mother returned to the apartment where she clumsily walked directly into a large glass window and split open her nose–blood gushing everywhere. Still riled up about the man from before, she tells Trey to grab the keys and go to the car to look for the guy so she can show him the bloody mess. They finally see the guy standing in a circle of friends–including his wife–in what Trey describes as a “golf, retirement home vibe” community. She gets out of the car and goes straight up to him, and screams “Look what you did to me!” (with blood everywhere), “Look what your husband did to me!” After causing a huge scene, Trey looks over his mother’s shoulder only to realize it’s not the right guy.From there, Trey Anastasio took the opportunity to deliver two solo debuts of Phish’s “Mexican Cousin” and “Buffalo Bill”. The Phish theme continued with “Waste” and “Stealing Time From The Faulty Plan”, which led directly into “Wading in the Velvet Sea”. In honor of the 21st birthday of “Carini”, the dark favorite made its third appearance in Trey’s solo repertoire, the second in 2018. The set closed with “Back on the Train”, and after a brief break, Trey returned with a three-song encore.A beautiful “Brian and Robert” from 1998’s The Story Of The Ghost opened the encore, followed by Trey Anastasio Band’s “Show of Life”. The Charlotte show closed with Phish’s “Backwards Down The Number Line”. You can torrent the full show audio here, courtesy of kingkita.Trey Anastasio will conclude his solo tour tonight at The Classic Center Theatre in Athens, GA.Setlist: Trey Anastasio | Knight Theater | Charlotte, NC | 2/17/18Theme From The Bottom, Anything But Me, Sweet Dreams Melinda, Sample in a Jar, Everything’s Right, Architect, Twist, Mountains in the Mist, Lifeboy, Summer of ’89, The Inlaw Josie Wales, Limb by Limb, Cavern, Rise/Come Together, Mexican Cousin, Buffalo Bill, Waste, Stealing Time From the Faulty Plan, Wading in the Velvet Sea, Carini, Back on the TrainE: Brian and Robert, Show of Life, Backwards Down the Number Linelast_img read more
