Good Vibes

Let’s take a look back at some other noteworthy performances from this year’s Gathering Of The Vibes festival (check out coverage of the Levon Helm and Ratdog shows here). Thanks to the hard work of some tapers – special events like the Vibes live on long after the bands packed up and gone. Check out the following bootlegs from Deep Banana Blackout and Keller Williams.

Deep Banana raged the main stage friday night between P-Funk and moe.’s set (which was cut short due to intense lightning). I have to hand it to DBB – they were definitely the highlight of the evening. Vibes is a hometown show for DBB and they never dissapoint, this show is no exception. Highlights include a Jerry Garcia/Merl Saunders tribute performance of ‘Like a Road’ and a smoking rendition of Santana’s ‘Soul Sacrifice’, enjoy!

Keller is a festival staple – you won’t find too many lineups out there without the one-man freak show these days. Over the years, Keller has worked up quite a staple of fan favorites and always brings his A-game, especially in prime-time early evening slots like at this year’s Vibes. Highlights from the show included a funky take on Phish’s ‘Birds of a Feather’, a nod to the Dead with a fun ‘Eyes of the World’ w/ Donna on vocals, and runs through some of his greatest hits like ‘Kidney In A Cooler’, ‘Freeker By The Speaker’, ‘Breathe’, and ‘Best Feeling’. All in all, a very solid showing and a fun, upbeat show, give it a whirl!
