Marcus King? THE eleven AM payoff!! :mrgreen:

Man whatta set, and Marcus got a BIG crowd out to see him! The word is definitely out about him. What a treat to see him sitting in with all manner of Wanee bands. Very happy for his success, and so glad there are young guns out there with soul and grit and ability. :D

~~~~~~~~~

Ben Sparaco also knocked it out of the park. I hadn't seen him in over a year... there's been a real maturity of his music in that year. Very happy for him... such great progress since seeing him as just 'the kid on slide' a couple short years ago with Crazy Fingers.

All the best to these bright young talents. Does my crusty ol' cynical heart good to see it.
:ugeek:

Agree with Bob wholeheartedly. Between Marcus King and Ben Sparaco, our music is in good hands. Gotta think Warren will be with us quite a while longer, and that Derek and Susan will eventually be lured back to the Suwanee River, too.

Agree, especially Marcus! Will see him again at Lockn' late this summer. Good to see you over at Mushroom, Bob!

I dunno, not sure what to think about the future of Wanee. With the ABB influence fairly well gone now, what will the direction/feel be going forward? Admit I am not a huge WSMFP or ex-Dead member bands fan. Two sets by TTB would go a long way to keeping my interest, though Derek seems reluctant to return- at all.
Honestly I am starting to feel a similar disinterest for most good-sized camping music fest lineups (primarily headliners), which is a crying shame since I love camping music fests...

Yeah, Tedeschi Trucks Band could definitely help carry the fest. Hate they weren't on the schedule this year!

Could use some late night Lettuce as well

[color=#BF00BF]Ok, I'm going to just say it. Marcus King is very very talented, BUT he's just so stinking cute with that baby face and those cheeks! I think I'm turning into my grandma (who ran a pub by the way).[/color]

:? uh-oh. AndieBee has hit the "cheek-squeezing" age. :shock:


That said, I've recently reached the age where I see a cute, young musician and think "oooh, my 12 year old daughter would looove him." :oops:

I was down at the Marcus King 11 am set and I look over my shoulder and Charlie Starr was down there as a spectator as well. Just chillin under the oaks and swinging his kid in a hammock. That's when you know you're good. When other badass people show up in the crowd.
