Assembly of DustSinger Songwriter Reid Genauer, frontman of Assembly of Dust, has described the seminal 1968 studio recording, Music From The Big Pink, by the legendary group The Band and Bob Dylan, as influential in his decision to be a rock musician. It’s this rational that has drawn Genauer and AOD a large and dedicated following of music aficionado fans, including those of us in the Vibe Tribe who’ve known of his songwriting and vocal talents for years, as his original band, Strangefolk – which he’ll also be performing with this weekend – was one of the founding bands to play at the first Vibes festival in 1996.
Band TogetherFounded by Rob Fried and Jerry Vigorito, Band Together has a vision to create community minded musical events that raise your spirits and are fun to attend. Our goal is to unite a network of talented musicians and artists with people and organizations interested in raising funds for families in need of a helping hand. The meaningfulness of these performances to our lives articulate four goals: 1) to make and enjoy music, 2) to use our talent and influence to help people in need, 3) to develop a network of supporters for concerts and programs, 4) to get one step Closer to Heaven.
Blues TravelerSeventeen years after scoring the Grammy Award winning, harmonica laced Billboard Top Ten breakthrough hit that came to define pop music in the mid-90s, Blues Traveler are still finding unique ways to ensure that they don’t give their legion of worldwide fans the “Run-Around.” On their instantly infectious, musically expansive 11th studio album and 429 Records/SLG debut, Suzie Cracks The Whip, they remain creatively focused while dramatically expanding their musical horizons upon celebrating their 25th anniversary as a band.
Borboletta: A Tribute to SantanaThe idea for this Santana Tribute Group began to come together after a show in early October 2012 when percussionist Johnny Durkin (DBB/Manchado),Cyrus Madan (Keys-DBB) and Tim Palmieri (Guitar-Kung Fu) had a warm up gig for a wedding.
Cosmic JibarosThe Gathering of The Vibes couldn’t be more proud to welcome back this hometown Latin Rock band to the stage, and we’re certain you'll agree that they are a worthy addition to the VibeTribe. Cosmic Jibaros have effectively changed the idea of the typical Latin rock band.The band builds its sound from Latin and Caribbean rhythms, Rock & Roll guitars and World Music influences for a sound that’s both cross-cultural and highly danceable. There’s an irresistible pull of traditional Afro-Caribbean beats, interplaying between the congas and timbales, and mixed with urban elements in the deep drum and bass and effects-laden guitar work. These songs are laced with social and political overtones, and are sung primarily in Spanish by charismatic front man Ricardo Reyes.
Dark Star OrchestraThis band’s Thursday night tribute performances at Vibes have become one of the most talked about sets of the entire festival over the last six years. As campers and fans set-up camp and find friends old and new on Thursday, it’s certainly one of the most asked questions around the park; “What set do you think DSO will perform tonight?” Dark Star Orchestras shows are built off the extensive catalog of the Grateful Dead. On any given night the band will perform a show based on a set list from the Grateful Dead's 30 years of extensive touring or use the catalog of original songs and often played covers to create a unique set list for the show. This allows music fans both young and old to share in the experience.
David GansDavid Gans is an American musician, songwriter, and music journalist. He is a guitarist, and is known for incisive, literate songwriting. He is also noted for his music loop work, often creating spontaneous compositions in performance. He is the co-author of the book Playing in the Band: An Oral and Visual Portrait of the Grateful Dead, and the host of the weekly syndicated radio show The Grateful Dead Hour. He currently co-hosts a radio show with Gary Lambert on Sirius-XM called "Tales from the Golden Road", a call in show about the Grateful Dead.
Deep Banana BlackoutWe’re thrilled bring you another funk throwdown from our hometown heroes DBB, as the eight piece funk band has become known. This band has performed at the Vibes festival in all but two years since it’s inception. This eight piece musical outfit was notorious for performing musical compositions ranging from Tower of Power, Sly and the Family Stone to the likes of Funkadelic. Deep Banana Blackout has sold out such venues as the Webster Theater in Hartford, Connecticut (1200 capacity) and Irving Plaza in New York City (1100 capacity). With a full horn section and a soulful, funky groove DBB’s infectious sound is a combination of old school funk, Latin salsa, jazz and rock music.
FishboneConsidering the history of both the Gathering Of The Vibes festival and this pioneering band, it’s hard to believe this will be their first time performing at the Vibes. If you’ve yet to have the chance see and hear this band, you won’t want to miss it. Celebrating 25 groundbreaking years, FISHBONE has been trailblazing their way through the history of American Ska, Funk, Punk, Rock Fusion and (so-called) Black Rock since starting their professional career in Los Angeles' burgeoning, Alternative Rock music scene of the mid-1980s. Their sound has often been imitated, but never duplicated.
funky METERSEvery member of this band has been inaugurated as VibeTribe- they’ve all performed on our stage in one incarnation or another. We couldn’t be more elated to bring this line up of the funky METERS to the Northeast. VibeTribe, come get your gumbo from the first family of New Orleans Funk!!!!Formed during an informal jam during the 1989 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, Art Neville, George Porter Jr., and Russell Batiste Jr., founded what would be the core of the funky METERS.
GalacticContinuing our celebration of all things Funk, we proudly welcome Galactic back to the stage. Galactic was formed eighteen years ago in New Orleans, and they cut their teeth playing the biggest party in America: Mardi Gras, when the town shuts down entirely to celebrate. To make Carnivale Electricos, the members of Galactic (Ben Ellman, harps and horns; Robert Mercurio, bass; Stanton Moore, drums and percussion; Jeff Raines, guitar; Rich Vogel, keyboards) draw on the skills, stamina, and funk they deploy in the all-night party of their annual Lundi Gras show that goes till sunrise and leads sleeplessly into Mardi Gras day.
Grace Potter & The NocturnalsIn 2009, this young band was on the verge of blowing up when they performed on the Vibes stage for the first time, putting out one of the most energetic and enthralling live performances the festival has ever seen. And with the release of The Lion, The Beast, The Beat, this rock band is one of the hottest bands on the touring circuit, selling out at larger and larger venues everywhere around the world, and we are certain their performance will be another one to remember. With this musically combustible and conceptually dazzling work, the Vermont- based band forcefully takes its place alongside the best of its peers while building on the rich legacy of its inspirations. During this a la carte age, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals have boldly pushed against the current, making a bona fide album that demands to be heard in its entirety.
James Murphy (DFA/LCD Soundsystem)There’s no denying the evolution of Electronic Dance Music (EDM), and its effect on a current generation of music fans. One of the bigger artists or bands with an influence on that generation is LCD SOUNDSYSTEM. Though best known as the leader of the now-defunct LCD SOUNDSYSTEM, James Murphy has been active in various roles pre-dating, throughout, and beyond the Grammy-nominated LCD's existence.
Jason Crosby BandJason Crosby had an auspicious musical beginning at the age of 2 when he started playing the violin, and shortly after it was discovered that he possessed perfect pitch. As a young boy, he immersed himself in classical music, and was playing piano at a professional level at a very young age. He then took on the guitar, the viola, the French horn and the trumpet and pursued those instruments with equal vigor for many years. A multi-instrumentalist with extensive and varied musical pursuits, Crosby has previously been a member of such bands as Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Susan Tedeschi Band, and many others. Jason has played on dozens of albums and has toured with members of the Allman Brothers, The Dead, and the Meters. Over the last few years Crosby has also toured with artists like Carlos Santana, Eric Clapton, Pete Seeger, the Blind Boys of Alabama and Dave Mathews.
JimkataJimkata is an electro-rock band blending heavy beats, synthy hooks, big guitars, and profound lyricism. Now touring to support their innovative, fan-funded record Die Digital, this Upstate New York based quartet has been tearing up the northeast club and theater circuit and playing to larger and larger crowds wherever it goes, based solely on word of mouth of it’s energetic live performances.
John Butler TrioIn 2011, this Australian based trio closed the Gathering Of The Vibes Festival, with an inspirational yet rocking set of blues and roots rock that drew one of the largest Sunday crowds we’ve ever had. As so, we’re happy to be bringing the band back to the Vibes this year for a reprisal performance. The band’s second studio album, Three (2001) reached the top 30 in the Australian album charts and achieved platinum sales. The band’s subsequent studio albums: Sunrise Over Sea (2004); Grand National (2007); and April Uprising (2010) all debuted at the number one position on the Australian album charts, with all three albums reaching platinum sales status. Living 2001–2002 (2003), the band’s first live album, reached the top ten and also achieved platinum status in Australia. The band’s second live album, Live at St. Gallen (2005) also achieved gold record status. The band’s releases since 2002 have been marketed independently by Jarrah Records, which Butler co-owns with West Australian folk band The Waifs and manager of both acts, Philip Stevens.
John Scofield UberjamThe legendary jazz guitarist and Berklee School of Music grad, often referred to as “Sco,” returns to the Vibes stage for the first time since 2005. This time around, he’ll be reuniting with the group that pioneered his fusing of jazz, funk and electronic music, documented on the Überjam recording, a genre defining album from 2002, and now promoting his new recording with the same band that as of press time was still unnamed, but due for release in May. This performance, by an artist of his stature, is certainly one not to be missed. This incarnation of the band features longtime Uberjam members Avi Bortnick (guitar/samplers) and Andy Hess (bass), and Louis Cato and longtime Uberjam member Adam Deitch will alternate drums duties on Scofield’s new album as well as on the road.
Kung FuThis Connecticut based quintet is blowing up, having toured bars and theaters and festivals nationwide to promote its eponymous debut, and is now making a proud return to the festival as a late night stage act. This band will certainly have the younger generation partying all night long. Join us and get your Fu on! Proud to be firmly installed in the new-funk movement, Kung Fu is quickly popularizing their unique sonic contribution, blurring the line between intense electro-fusion, and blistering dance arrangements. Making fusion music "cool" again, the band draws on influences such as early Headhunters and Weather Report, and merges those ideas with a contemporary EDM informed sensibility. Imagine 70's funk-fusion meets a modern dance party!
Lord HuronLord Huron began as a solo project by Michigan-born/Los Angeles-based musician Ben Schneider in the spring of 2010. On a trip home to Michigan, Schneider recorded three songs inspired by communing with nature. These songs were later released as the Into the Sun EP, and Lord Huron was born. The songs quickly gained recognition and a live band was assembled to flesh out the songs in a live setting. Lord Huron began performing as a band in August of 2010 and quickly began touring, developing their live show as they went. In November of 2010 a second EP, entitled Mighty, was released, and coupled with a video for the standout track "The Stranger."
Lukas Nelson and P.O.T.R.To say Lukas was born to play music is an understatement. The sixth child of one of the most acclaimed and beloved music stars of all time Willie Nelson, and his fourth wife Annie, Lukas inherited his father’s musicality, his penchant for penning his own music, and his love of the road. He had previously played in a hard rock band when he was just 9-years-old (Kalice), in a reggae band in high school in Hawaii at age 15 (Harmonic Tribe), and formed a band with his younger brother Micah at age 19 (40 Points). But with Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real, his songwriting craft and performance skills were fully honed. The band - which includes drummer Anthony LoGerfo, percussionist Tato Melgar, and bassist Corey McCormick - released a well-received EP, Brando’s Paradise Sessions, in 2009 and then hit the road with everyone from Willie Nelson, B.B. King, Dave Matthews Band, Blues Traveler, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Bachman & Turner, Toots & the Maytals, the Meat Puppets, and others.
Max CreekThis Connecticut improv rock band had been part of the family from the festivals inception through 2003. We were elated to bring the band back to the festival stage in 2009, and they’ve been returning to the Vibes stage ever since. The quintet added a new percussion section in 2011 and is sounding tighter and as timeless as they ever have. Max Creek are truly purveyors of the scene and are not to be missed at Gathering of The Vibes.
McLovinsMcLovins specialize in the creation of dynamic and improvised sound, influenced by the members' disparate and eclectic musical influences. The band currently includes Jason Ott, Jake Huffman, Justin Berger and Atticus Kelly. These College students from Connecticut embrace simultaneous and intricate improvisation with a more versatile front line in which all members are singing in four-part harmony, writing lyrics & music, as well as expounding on one another's musical ideas. Set list segues and fiery improvisations are a staple of the band's performances, keeping their audience always guessing what's coming next and wanting more!
Nigel Hall BandA Washington D.C. native, Nigel soaked in the sounds of Go-Go, funk and soul. His musical influences reach far beyond his years; from James Brown to Donny Hathaway. It only takes one song to see that Nigel is a talent who is here to stay. In 2011, Nigel became a full-time member of the Warren Haynes Band and toured Europe as a part of John Scofield's band. A mainstay on the Portland, ME scene, Nigel has recently toured with the funk powerhouse Lettuce. His energetic vocals add yet another layer of sonic depth and energy to the all-star cast. Nigel is also an established keyboardist, currently working in the studio with Chapter 2, featuring Eric Krasno, Adam Deitch, and Louis Kato.
Original StrangefolkIn 2012, Gathering of The Vibes was pleased to welcome back to the stage the reunion of the original line up of Strangefolk, one of the bands that played on the first line up of the festival in 1996. We’re thrilled to have the original band back with us again this year. In a nod to The Grateful Dead, last year the band performed that band’s most recognized song, “Touch Of Grey,” receiving a huge ovation for their lovely rendition of the song, with the infectious chorus; “We will survive!” Indeed! The last time Jon Trafton, Reid Genauer, Erik Glockler and Luke Smith performed on stage was something that could only be described by the sum of its parts. Those parts being not only the four musicians on stage, but also the community of fans they had developed over the years.
PapadosioGathering of the Vibes is excited to welcome back this 2012 addition to the VibeTribe. One of our favorite electronic and progressive rock acts hails from the hills of Ashville, North Carolina and is touring to promote their latest recording, To End the Illusion of Separation (T.E.T.I.O.S.) Little time is spent nestled up in the Blue Ridge Mountains, though, as Papadosio spends much of the year on the road, crisscrossing the United States ceaselessly. In addition to headlining shows in every region of the country, their high-energy, technologically perplexing, and utterly engaging stage show has made the five-piece a staple on the festival circuit, with scene-stealing sets at Summer Camp, Wakarusa, Sonic Bloom, Electric Forest, Oregon Country Fair, Camp Bisco, Bear Creek, and their own annual event, Rootwire, an inspirational confluence of music, art, science, and spirituality. With more than 100 performances a year, the band remains prolific by passing the endless miles between cities composing new material.
Phil Lesh & FriendsPhil Lesh is entering his 15th year of playing with a rotating mix of Friends, both old and new. Phil began playing under the moniker Phil Lesh and Friends in 1998, after he returned to performing following the death of his friend and band mate Jerry Garcia in 1995. With a varied mixture of some of the best performing musicians in the live music universe, Phil has kept his musical journey fresh by constantly and consistently putting together bands featuring dynamic, exciting musicians and singers working together toward keeping the music of the Grateful Dead moving forward into the future.
A splendid time is guaranteed for all.
Railroad EarthThere’s a great scene in The Last Waltz – the documentary about The Band’s final concert – where director Martin Scorsese is discussing music with drummer/singer/mandolin player Levon Helm. Helm says, “If it mixes with rhythm, and if it dances, then you’ve got a great combination of all those different kinds of music: country, bluegrass, blues music, show music…” To which Scorsese, the inquisitive interviewer, asks, “What’s it called, then?” “Rock & roll!” Clearly looking for a more specific answer, but realizing that he isn’t going to get one, Marty laughs. “Rock & roll…” Well, that’s the way it is sometimes: musicians play music, and don’t necessarily worry about where it gets filed. It’s the writers, record labels, managers, etc., who tend to fret about what “kind” of music it is.
Rob Garza (Thievery Corporation)His two-man band has been one of the most acclaimed indie bands over the last 10 years, mining elements of dub, acid jazz, reggae and bossa nova, among other styles. We’re thrilled to have Rob join us at the Vibes this year for what promises to be an enchanting performance for certain. As one half of electronic music pioneers/producers Thievery Corporation, he has been at the forefront of music for over a decade and a half, traveling the globe performing, remixing, djing, recording and composing.
Ryan Montbleau BandThe music of the Ryan Montbleau Band is as warm and invigorating as sunshine breaking through on a cloudy day. The quintet has been a Vibes mainstay for eight years, and it’s soulful, acoustic roots rock and Americana is powered by the driving rhythms of percussionist Yahuba Garcia-Torres, drummer James Cohen and bassist Matt Giannaros, while keyboardist Jason Cohen and guitarist Lyle Brewer add dynamic harmonies. For more than 10 years, this gifted singer and tight five piece backing band have built their catalog the old-fashioned way, by introducing new songs to their live set, including many songs played for the first time on the Vibes’ stages over the years, then bending and shaping them over dozens of performances before committing a definitive version to the hard drive.
Steve Kimock feat. Bernie Worell and FriendsCombining Steve Kimock, one of the leading improvisational guitarists around, with Bernie Worrell, co-founding keyboardist of Parliament/Funkadelic (and a performer with Talking Heads) delivers synergistic funky music, along with inspiring soulful sounds. Steve Kimock (part of Marin County’s beloved band Zero, the first post-Grateful Dead “Furthur Tour” with “The Other Ones,” and later “Phil and Friends” plus many more) and Bernie Worrell (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member) bring their musical chemistry to the stage this summer with new songs, a powerful rhythm section and special guest vocalist.
Tedeschi Trucks BandTedeschi Trucks Band, the 11-piece ensemble led by husband-wife team Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, have proven themselves one of the hottest, most uplifting acts on the road today. Formed in 2010 when Derek and Susan decided to set aside their successful solo careers and join forces, Tedeschi Trucks Band has since been touring the globe - and accruing fans and accolades in the process. Fronted by Trucks' signature slide-guitar sound and Tedeschi's pliant, honey-to-husky voice, TTB -- as their fans know them -- delivers a hearty roots-rich musical mix with the power to renew faith in live music. Their joyful, spontaneous energy, and overflowing musical talent, have helped Tedeschi Trucks Band reach pinnacles of accomplishment that most bands spend a career trying to reach.
The Black CrowesWe’re ecstatic to welcome back The Black Crowes, the renowned southern rock band whose two-hour Friday night set in 2008 was one of the most mind-blowing sets the Vibe Tribe has ever experienced. Without question, their performance at this year’s event is not to be missed. At the time of their 1990 debut, the kind of rock & roll the Black Crowes specialized in was sorely out of style. Only Guns N’ Roses came close to approximating a vintage Stones-style raunch, but they were too angry and jagged to pull it off completely. The Black Crowes, on the other hand, replicated that Stonesy swagger and Faces boogie perfectly. Vocalist Chris Robinson appropriated the sound and style of vintage Rod Stewart, while brother Rich Robinson fused Keith Richards’ lean guitar attack with Ron Wood’s messy rhythmic sense. At their best, the Black Crowes echoed classic rock without slavishly imitating their influences, and the band’s nostalgic sound helped foster a long, popular career.
The RevivalistsWe’re excited to welcome this new band to the Vibes stage and think you’ll be impressed with their live performance. Since forming in 2007, The Revivalists have rightfully earned their reputation as the next breakout band from the music capital of New Orleans. The group’s blend of soulful, syncopated rock and earnest songwriting comes to life through a meticulously crafted and ever-evolving live performance.
The RootsThe Roots, the legendary, Grammy Award winning hip hop crew and arguably the hardest working musicians in popular culture, turn 25 this year. The brainchild of childhood friends Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson and Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter, The Roots began their career playing bucket drums and freestyling on the streets and competing with Boyz II Men for top honors at The Philadelphia High school for Creative and Performing Arts.
Tribal SeedsFrom San Diego, California, award-winning reggae group Tribal Seeds have become known for their spiritually driven, refreshing rock vibe they have infused with the roots style of reggae music. Originally started by two brothers, Steven Rene Jacobo [lyrics, lead vocals, rhythm guitar] and Tony-Ray Jacobo [producer, keyboard player], Tribal Seeds now boats six members, including: Tony Navarro [lead guitar], Carlos Verdugo [drums], Jose Rodriguez [keys, percussion], and Victor Navarro [bass]. Tribal Seeds’ unmatched musical talent and authentic sound has brought them to the forefront of the reggae rock genre, as their art form has reached people of all ages across the United States, and worldwide.
Wavy GravyAs always, A Gathering of the Vibes just wouldn’t be a festival without our beloved Master of Ceremonies, the one and only Wavy Gravy. Be sure to greet him with a gracious and respectful hello if you see him strolling in the concert field, as he’s the read deal and truly practices and lives by the ‘60s idealisms, and spreads love and joy wherever he goes. Wavy Gravy, AKA Hugh Romney, who is fast approaching official geezerhood, is more active and more effective in the world then he was decades ago. Back then when still known as Hugh Romney he stood on the stage of the original Woodstock concert and announced...." What we have in mind is breakfast in bed for 400,000!" He was at Woodstock as a member of an entertainment/activist commune known as the Hog Farm.
von GreyGathering of the Vibes is excited to bring you the delightful sounds of von Grey. With their soulful four-part harmonies, poetic lyrics and indelible melodies, it’s easy to see why the Atlanta Journal Constitution would hail von Grey as “nothing short of stunning.” They sound like they were born to play together – and, in fact, they were. The four sisters have been playing music nearly their entire lives. Classically trained from an early age, the Atlanta-based quartet – Kathryn, Annika, Fiona and Petra von Grey – have built on that foundation by performing upwards of 200 shows in the past two years, from recurring residency tours at intimate venues throughout the southeastern U.S. to supporting gigs with such artists as Sarah McLachlan.

The Kind BudsThe Kind Buds, New England’s Premier Jam Duo, entertain their audiences with inspiring covers & incendiary originals, trading fiery-sweet licks on a roller coaster of tension & release. A truly acoustic duo, Bud & Budd perform raucous, intuitve, wide – open jams with stunning guitar interplay. Tight vocal harmonies compliment and complete their sound. No effects of any kind are used in live performances. This August celebrates The Kind Buds 9 years as a duo and their Vibes’s performance may be their 600 show performed together. The Kind Buds play major East Coast music festivals such as The Gathering of the Vibes, Bears Picnic, Camp Creek, StrangeCreek; Solarfest; Sunshine Daydream Festival. The Kind Buds have just returned from taking the West Coast by storm after playing the historic Oregon Country Fair in Veneta, Oregon. Bud & Budd have opened for such greats as The New Riders of the Purple Sage; Jefferson Starship; Big Brother and the Holding Company; Tom Constanten, Tony Trischka with Steve Martin sitting in with him, and David LaFlemme of Its a Beautiful Day. The Kind Buds were also a part of the Unbroken Chain Symposium on the Legacy of the Grateful Dead held at U-Mass in Amherst in Nov of 07.
TwiddleTwiddle, a Vermont based quartet, spins tall tales over an intricate soundscape of hi-def shred. Their fresh multi-genre approach conjures up jazz, classical, and bluegrass, but above all, masterfully blends reggae and funk. Obliterating laws of improvisation, their complex arrangements never fail to leave crowds lusting for more. With sage songwriting and unmatched variety, Twiddle’s thrilling infancy will surely exceed all expectation.
World Peace CeremonyIn recognition of the Spring Equinox, members and neighbors of The World Peace Prayer Society gathered at The World Peace Sanctuary in Wassaic, New York. We walked up the Peace Path, paused and gathered around each one of the 193 Peace Poles representing the UN Member States to send wishes by saying, “May Peace Be in that Nation” and then someone would spontaneously add in by saying, “May Peace Prevail On Earth” along the way. Days prior to the event we received heartfelt messages from WPPS members and Peace Representatives from many countries around the world, such as, requests for us to send our energy to end conflict in their homeland or for the freedom of a woman under persecution. Other messsages were from people who just wanted to let us know that they would be with us in spirit on this day for the same reason half way around the Globe. As we reached each of these countries’ Peace Pole someone would read aloud the message that was sent to us. It was deeply moving for everyone to share this. In almost perfect timing the sun was slipping below the horizon just as we reached the end of Peace Path, standing at the Peace Pole representing Zimbabwe. We sent out our love, respect and hopes and dreams for the future.
