Wooohoo! Hello everyone! I've been lurking since a couple weeks before this year's Roo and fell in love with this board. I found all of the info I needed for my first Bonnaroo experience to the point where my friends ended up calling me an expert, ha! So I figured it was only natural to start posting. I'm a moderator on a band message board, so I'm quite familiar with how things roll on the internet and am really excited to get to know another online community.

They were great! Saw them in a small setting, maybe 75-100 people in a small room. Phenomenal guitar player. If you ever get a chance.. See them! Hey have a new album coming out this fall, Maybe they'll visit the farm
Yes sir! He made it clear that everything was done live, no pre recording for their show. Throughout the set he was using the pedals, dude uses literally 5 different sets of pedals. At one point he knelt down and played the pedals for a good 30- 45 secs. It was really cool to see up close and person. And the icing on top was that they were great people! They stayed after the show to sign autographs & take pictures, even had a few beers with the crowd
