A few Notes:
Hooch and I have had many discussions with members of our camp these last few years and we’ve decided to scale back on how many events and shows we produce each year. In the past, we’ve had shows essentially every night and it took a toll on us. We’re hoping to be able to enjoy more down time this year. Well, not so much down time as time to take our patented brands of debauchery to your camps to hang out with all you lovely people. So consider that a warning. We also don’t want to hog all the good event times. In the past, we’ve run events damn near every day, and sometimes twice a day. Which has limited when other camps could host their own events. We’ve decided on two nights of music. We still want to be able to showcase as many bands as possible, so we’re going to be hosting a double bill on Wednesday. This also opens up more space for good old, old fashioned, picking circles.
The Hippie Jerry Memorial Picking Party is going to be just that. A Party. If other folks feel the need for a more somber, quieter event, we encourage you to host one. But that wasn’t what Hippie trained me to do. And, quite frankly, it’s not really Run a Muck’s style. This will be a wild and raucous event paying tribute to a great friend and celebrating his life. Bring an instrument. Bring a drink. Bring some weed. Bring whatever you feel you need to bring to celebrate Hippie Jerry.
We’re also retooling the Singer Songwriter event. In previous years, we’ve felt it has been too long of an event. As such, this year, we’ve decided to split it up into two different hours with a break in the middle so people can have a bite to eat, refill their beverages, mingle, and do whatever else festivarians can get up to in an hour. We’ll have a different lineup of songwriters for each hour. Come for one or for both. Bring your own chair for this event as we definitely don’t have enough for everyone.
Finally, I’ve got a list of bands from the contest who would still love to play in Town Park. I know Camp Crossroads is looking for a band for Tropical Tuesday and I’m going to be helping them in their search. If your camp would like to host a band during one of your events or even put on your own nightgrass show Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, let me know and I’ll put you in touch with them.
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
