They were the surprise VIP band last night and were amazing. They played two sets and were just plain going off. These guys have a couple other shows throughout the weekend and I can emphatically say that if you have a chance you need to go check them out. I was blown away. Pictures later.
Wow, thgey were the surprise VIP band? They played like 8 shows this weekend. Big Sam came on with Galactic, they played the Fiesta Garage, they played on top of a trailer at pod three Friday afternoon, they had their What Stage set, a sonic stage set, and probably more I still don't know about. Big Sam was definitely Bonnaroo MVP this year.
I loved them at the What Stage. We had an awesome view and were able to dance, and dance, and dance. And despite the heatwave, we danced some more. We were lucky to catch them at Bonnaroo a couple of years ago in the Somethin' Else Tent when they had the New Orleans fundraiser and I instantly fell in love with them. So when I heard they would be there this year, I knew I'd have to see them. And, needless to say, I wasn't disappointed. They rocked it just like I knew they would ... and then some. I just hate that I missed all the other opportunities to see them throughout the weekend. Sounds like they really did get around.
I saw them getting interviewed by some reporters/video cameras and they were just so psyched to be there. They were saying how everyone in the camps were crazy and meeting Steve Martin at the band dinner was really surreal. One of the guys (the kind of Lil Wayne looking guy) invited me to check them out at What Stage. Great guys, awesome musicians and workhorses. A winning combination
