Thread: THE OFFICIAL WANEEFEST 2008 THREAD!!!

BigDaveOnBass - 9/10/2007 at 09:30 PM

OK, I know it's WAY early for this, but a sweet sister (FarmerMaggie) called me today and gave me a heads up on the RV sites where The River Road Compound is usually set up and said they were already being booked. We missed out on 224A and 226A. Between she and I, we have secured 228A & B, 230A & B and 232A & B. That gives us six sites so far. Someone needs to snag 224B and 226B PRONTO!! This shifts us a little up River Road from last year, but not too far.

I have also made an attempt to contact park management about having a guarantee on the times we can have the campfire jam, without fear of being shut down early like we were this year, or perhaps being able to set it up inside the dining hall for a late night indoor thing. I know it won't be the same as being near the campfire, but we had SO much talent from this website family, including special guests Pedro Arevalo and Thorson Moore, that it was a shame we were shut down just as we were building a head of steam. If moving it inside guarantees us a certain amount of time to play, I'm game. What say you all?

Also, in regard to sites 224A and 226A, if your name is Angela and you are a part of this website, please send me a PM. We'd like to include you in the compound, or negotiate a site swap. Thanks!!

WANEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! (as JumboShrimp would say.)

All ideas will be considered and discussed, once I have established a dialog with the right folks at S.O.S. Music Park. Thanks for your input, WBD.

And, Chuck, if beer is the only ingredient we need to simulate a southern version of Yogi's, we got you covered.

Now I just need to decide if I am flying or driving.

And renting a room or sleeping on the ground..

SO MANY DECISIONS!!!

Are the dates set yet?? This is going to be my first year and l can't wait!!


BigDaveOnBass - 9/10/2007 at 10:42 PM

According to The S.O.S.M.P. website it's going to be on April 18-19, 2008. However, the WaneeFest website has NOT been updated.

http://www.musicliveshere.com/concertsEvents.asp

Scroll down to find the Wanee date.


bluesguy - 9/10/2007 at 10:46 PM

Thanks Dave. How does the camping work?? Will l beable to reserve a spot l choose??


Benjamin - 9/10/2007 at 10:54 PM

Looks like Easter 2008 is March 23rd, so no need to worry about THAT this year!

Planning for April 2008 in September 2007, nothing wrong with that!

Primitive camping is included in the cost of the festival ticket. The River Road Compound is in the RV sites on River Road, just behind the Peach Stage. It costs extra for the RV sites, but we get electricity and water with that, which helps facilitate the amps and PA for the Campfire Jams. The park has shower and restroom facilities on site that campers can use.

wharfy you dont need a room, save your $$, one of us can bring you a tent and an air mattress i'm sure.


ok, so angela grabbed all the sites in RR compound? does she realize that she is going to have people in her campsite till about 5am? and i thought we already secured that site Dave???? no biggie it will all work out.



our magfest group is getting together in a few weeks ( warjag, peachjam, mac and me) so i'll ask what they want to do about wanee (and where they want to do it) and coordinate with Dave.

Lets start the petition now to let Lefty Collins and the NMB play at Wanee

And I dont mean just the campfire jams


MotherTeresa - 9/11/2007 at 03:17 AM

My festival goddess friend told me at Oteil's gig last friday night that the head guy at Fantasma, the Promoter for Wanee, had a stroke recently. I wonder what that might mean for the festival.


origapch - 9/11/2007 at 03:46 AM

I believe the event can go on without Fantasma.........

If you remember the 1st year Fantasma got involved late in the game after all of the planning had been completed.

Who is the promoter for Spring Feat and Mag Fest?

So I can't snag a spot at the moment. I'll see if Alec can.

Worse case, may I bunk with ya'll?
Hope to see you there.

Linnie, it was me that suggested getting the spots and it's 2 not all. She just wants a place she can change at. She will also have a hotel room. She really did this for me and us...everyone...which is a very nice thing, don't you agree!??

Big Trout, no problemo...you're in with us!!! We got two spots!!!

IMHO.....There is no "Peach Family Jam" without THE PEACHJAM(Mark) throwin the party!!!<~cause we all know that Brother sure knows how to throw a party,right!!!

I can't understand WHY Angela would even claim that perfect spot(that we've been using for the past 3 years) when she isn't going to even be camping anyways.(she's going to a hotel)
Whatever...........just let me know where the "Master of Wanee Ceremonies" sets up camp...& Scott & I will be there!


BigDaveOnBass - 9/11/2007 at 01:10 PM

I have been informed that Peachjam and WarJag will be setting up their camp in another location this year. I am truly bummed about this, as PeachJam has been an integral part of The River Road Compound and Campfire Jams for all three years there has been a WaneeFest.

Mark, if I grovel and beg, would you please reconsider?

Krishna - 9/11/2007 at 01:20 PM

I do remember Mark & Jesse talking about securing some spots for Magfest that were more secluded from the main traffic.......but I don't remember them saying that about Wanee.(but then again,I may be wrong)
For me........the River Road PeachFamily Compound is a HUGE part of the Wanee experience.


FarmerMaggie - 9/11/2007 at 01:53 PM

We stay excited about Wanee all year long, as it is.

Henry and I will only use one of the RV sites, if at all - Which ever one is the smallest - and we can put extra tents on it, as well. Two of these are 40ft sites, from what they told me. We will let these two go to whomever needs them. We made the decision to secure the 40ft sites with the thought (peachjam? or warjag?) that the motor home might need one of these...?? We just wanted to be sure these were available for our beloved famabbly.

BigDaveOnBass - 9/11/2007 at 03:47 PM

I want to keep the spirit and vibe of the past River Road Compound and Campfire Jams alive as much as possible. The size of the Jam production will hinge largely on my dialog with park authorities. If they can't promise me a reasonable cut off time for the Campfire Jams, well, I'm not going bring my PA all the way from GA if we can't play for 3, 4 or 5 hours. Not trying to be a drag about it, but last years Friday night jam had some of the best musicians ever show up to play, only to be cut off at 2AM. (Thursday's jam was great, don't get me wrong. It was VERY happening. Since there were no scheduled performances, we were able to start earlier.) When you don't start the Friday jam until the ABB set is over, that doesn't even equate to two hours of Jam time. We may just have to consider having the Jam on Thursday night and start around 6, 7 or 8PM and go until they say stop. The Friday jam with Pedro was about to really take off when they shut us down. I don't want to experience that kind of disappointment again, if I don't have to. Everybody keep their fingers crossed that I'll be able to work something out with the powers that be at S.O.S.M.P. so we can have a longer Friday night jam, even if it means not having a Saturday night jam, which worked out anyway with the dTb midnight jam and the subsequent torrential downpour.


LinnieXX - 9/11/2007 at 03:50 PM

your efforts are appreciated Dave!


Haisija - 9/11/2007 at 03:53 PM

Dave your tops man...and you might want to consider getting vinsanity to help negotiate .


MotherTeresa - 9/11/2007 at 04:12 PM

I think the problem is that this jam is electric and your location is very prominent. I have always been to campfire jams that last til dawn back in the primitive camping areas behind the smaller stage. I never camp out there cause those peeps don't sleep and I really need some beauty sleep.You should try to rent the Treehouse back in the corner of the Mainstage. I have a myspace friend that rented it for Springfest last year and it was jamming after the music was over. Ask Warjag, he was there.


Angelemerald - 9/11/2007 at 05:37 PM

Hey Guys, Angela here.

Just got back from About 6 weeks of music and traveling so if I haven't been following all the details and goings on, I'm sorry. All I can say is I am thrilled Warren is doing some solo shows and the Belly-Up show was the very best I've ever seen and you can get it on the Mule Tracks. So I'm happy, though I have a bad cold from all the sharing of joints that I did at the Central Park show. I think I can't do that anymore cause I always get a bad cold after I do.

Anyway, I reserved 2 spots a few months ago. I really didn't know what spots were which from last year because I don't remember numbers well and I had a map to refer to but it looked different from what I had remembered so I just choose any two side by side spots (one for me and one for Sue).

I will say only one thing, I don't mind moving the spots with someone but this is a must. I bought a camp site so I can have a parking spot and set up a small tent so I can change and MAYBE my friend Debbie (from last year) and her 2 daughters may set up a real tent. I personally don't camp any more. I will have a room at the Holiday Inn as I usually do. I want to be able to come and go as I please and need a car spot that is not blocked by anyone or anything so I can come and go unencumbered. I would in fact have liked it closer to the entrance to the music field but I couldn't figure out what was up with the map. So if I am trading a spot with anyone please make sure it is up front with quick road access and closer to the MAIN entrance not further away. And I would like to be next to Sue as well.

So basically Sue and I have the 2 spots. I have nothing to do with any of the music but I am SURE that Lefty, Big Dave, Alec, Blue Dad, and all the guys can come up with something that is mutually appealing and positive for and to everyone. I haven't really spoken with Sue about her needs but she has the other spot and she and I would like to be near each other.

Again, I am sure we can all get together on this so everyone is happy.

Angela

I'm ready for a Suwannee River mineral "Rootbeer" Bath!
Last year Scott got a dip in the Suwannee & loved it!

truth be told, i didnt really get that wet till one of the fellas from our camping area took me down there swimming.... I'll never forget Jesse, Mac, Armin and Lane coming back all wet from swimming and me going "Dammit i wanted to go!" - at which time Mac pushes Lane toward me and says "He'll take you!". Its safe to say that we got to talking long enough that day enroute to the river to want to stay in contact after Wanee, and once i moved down here, we've been pretty much attached at the hip

At least that's how I see it.

Krishna - 9/11/2007 at 07:19 PM

The River Road Compound has been going on every year that Wanee has existed.......it's just that the past 2 years have gotten way bigger & way more involved!
I appreciate EVERYTHING that everyone has put into it & always will,no matter what!
And everyone knows that I am always willing to do my part as a Sister who helps out in anyway possible & needed.


BigDaveOnBass - 9/11/2007 at 07:53 PM

Brent, thanks for the support. The River Road Compound is the people who make it up, and we've been blessed with some really good folks the last three years. The Campfire Jams are the people who come, bring guitars, amps and drums, and PA. I have facilitated the PA and bass rig for all three Campfire Jams, to date. I don't mind doing it. What I do mind is being shut down just as we are hitting stride. I said after last years fiasco that I wouldn't bring my gear back up if we couldn't have a proper campfire jam, like we did on Friday night in 2006. We played 'til the roosters crowed. I gave out at 5:30AM, others were still playing at 8AM. Regardless of the scale of The Campfire Jams in 2008, I'm going to be with my people...my famABBly. I'm particularly looking forward to being with my Hayseed brothers. Y'all know who you are. If we sit in a circle with acoustics and play to each other, I'll be happy with that. It's the love I feel when I'm in The River Road Compound. Campfire Jam or not, I'll be home.

Bingo! We will get shut down because of the cabins. Also the area in the loop and member camping down the road People even older than us live there . This will be my 23rd festival there. It is nice to move around.

Its early guys/gals. I have a complete PA system now with lights(not like Dave's) but it is a very good Yamaha system.We are making a test run for Magfest that will have the PA system setup. It will be just miics and and acoustics not electric guitars. Mag/Spring fest are just that way.

The thing about river road is the shade. I am not in charge of this but we all will be at Wanee.
Armin with his Leslie and all. The ABB community will still be as one.

Hello all you Wanee-ites. Never to early to start planning for this party.

The Cabins are not available for rental during the festival though, I checked with the Park.


susea - 9/12/2007 at 06:48 PM

Can someone post a map of the grounds layout? Wondering how the campsite #'s look in all areas! May be helpful for others new to this as well! Thanks!

Brent do you mean the Music Hall stage? that might be a possibility if people are willing to chip in and pay the rental fee. It's really nice in there with AC and 2 stages and bath rooms. It is connected to the cafe.

I'll answer. Yes, that's exactly what we mean. However, looking at the site map, if we moved down away from the cabins, we might could pull off the jams and not disturb the cabin renters, if that is, in fact, the problem with the Campfire Jams.


skyponydogboy - 9/12/2007 at 07:07 PM

Right...if the cabins are the problem, maybe we could relocate to a better locale.
But, the music hall stage would be cool...what does it cost? Maybe we could all chip in and go for it...

BigDaveOnBass - 9/12/2007 at 07:23 PM

I was hoping someone from SOSMP would return my call from Monday, but I guess I'll have to call them back. It can't be too expensive. They might have restrictions on the hours of operation inside there, though. We'll see.


MotherTeresa - 9/12/2007 at 08:26 PM

well you might need some security for late night stuff and they use it for a bar during normal business for them but you could take donations from people at the door. it might could pay for itself.


BigDaveOnBass - 9/12/2007 at 08:34 PM

Well, the person I needed to speak to about reserving the dining hall/bar area wasn't in, and a message was left. Another person I spoke to about an alternate location for the campfire jams mentioned the Renaissance Area of the park, but it's not shown on the map. She said it has RV sites (water and electric) and is a little more secluded. It's somewhere out passed Rees Lake. Is anyone familiar with that? If we decide to go out that way, we can transfer our site reservations out there if they are still available.

Dave, once you figure out if you want to move further down or not then we can talk about if we should swap spots. We're way ahead of the game anyway.

Right Peachjam, you would worry about your stuff way out there and I know the Wookies will descend on Wanee as we get more and more popular.

warjag - 9/13/2007 at 12:32 AM

A lttle hunt and seek mission coming up Mark? The renaissance area I am not familiar with. They used to have a festival by that name at the gate to the left. It was so cool on Springfest to have both of these festivals. The land was unused the last time I wondered in them woods.

They may have put electrical hook ups there. You would need a bus to get to the stages though.

Dave the Music Hall would be to cool and I would gladly pitch in. The thing is people have to be in a bar atmosphere. Another words,buy there beer,food and do not smoke?

We will figure it out, it just so cool we are talking about something so far away!

i say we have a big 'ole scouting mission at Magfest.

i think the helens hilton people prefer to be away from the 24/7 pandemonium of the RR compound.....


warjag - 9/13/2007 at 12:58 AM

We will see at Magfest!


BigDaveOnBass - 9/13/2007 at 02:42 AM

If anyone can do some scouting prior to MagFest (it's the same weekend as Jam For Duane, so it's still a ways off,) I'd appreciate it. I don't want to miss an opportunity to move to a site more suitable for having an electric Campfire Jam. It seems the Campfire Jams have taken a life of their own, a festival within a festival, if you will. I think the park shuts us down at 2AM on account of the proximity to the cabins, and for crowd control. We do draw some spectators, don't we?


origapch - 9/13/2007 at 03:29 AM

There are camp sites right in front of the Helen's Hilton compound with electrical hookups. We have been borrowing electricity for 3 years now from those sites.

It would be nice to have everyone together in one area next year......


origapch - 9/13/2007 at 03:33 AM

Looks like it would be sites 1-62 on my map........


origapch - 9/13/2007 at 03:40 AM

Helen, Nancy and myself have been getting up there early........

I think we arrived on Wednesday this year to set up the Helen's Hilton Camp Compound.

We are planning on doing the same again next year. We will definitely be roping off a larger area as we maxed out the space we saved and roped off this year.

Might just have to plan a bike ride up there for a nice get away excursion in the next few weeks to scope it out again while there are no events going on and crouds to contend with.......


MotherTeresa - 9/13/2007 at 11:53 AM

Our Helen's Hilton area is getting quite popular with other folks not in our group too. I was shocked at Springfest at how crowded the horse stable area was when I got there on a Thursday afternoon last March.

I guess the good secrets are hard to keep. Check with Helen also cause she always has a lot of non questbook friends staying in that area too. Mostly people from Tallytown. Larry, Beth and so on.


Krishna - 9/13/2007 at 12:55 PM

Helen's Hilton shuts down wayyyyy too early for the River Rd crew.....we don't want to wake up the kids & the "early birds" that stay over there!

imho:
I think it would be respectful of the Hilton to keep the RR compound party elsewhere.

And, yes, I do have - ulterior motives: ie personal agendas ie kids - in mentioning this.

It is very peaceful there for late night. My kids prefer camping down there for that reason.

I won't presume to speak for anybody else, but it would be nice if we could preserve Helen's as the descrete retreat sanctuary from sensory overload.
It is very much family oriented down there, and the smallest children (not mine!) in our other famabblies should be a huge factor in this.

Having said that, Helen's is on one side of the road and the RV sites are on the other. It could be set up in a way that the music faced away from the Hilton.
This could still be problematic, however, b/c the parking down there can get gridlocked.


MotherTeresa - 9/13/2007 at 02:38 PM

Well it all depends which RV sites are reserved in the Hilton area and how early someone gets there and how much they can rope off. If we got all the RV spots at the end of the line ( I think the 40's are in the general area) that would be good. There are 2 rows and some face the dirt road.

I'm thinking if we moved up River Road just a little, enough to get out from in front of the cabins, we might not have as much of a chance of getting harassed by park management to shut the jam down. I am only speculating that the cabin dwellers are one of the reasons we get shut down early. PLUS, it would put us closer to Helen's Hilton, making moving between the two camps a little easier. Like I said, this is all discussion at this point. BUT, I don't think we'll be able to wait 'til after MagFest if we decide to transfer our RV site reservations. All input is welcome.

These don't show on the map, but they are exactly what I was thinking.
But, according to the SOSMP office just now, there is only one RV site left for this weekend. Hmmm.. Nothing like the power of cyber suggestion.

I was going to try and get one more site - the one where Henry & I were last year - so that we could still have one on River Road close to the gate. I'm using my wheelchair more frequently these days, and that was a great spot. But it is gone.
The 'Blue' camping is up beyond the 'Mushroom Stage' and that road gets closed off during some preformances - presenting the problem of ".. you can't get{golf cart/buggy}there from here...".
But! Hey, I'm extremely happy to have what we have!!

Just remember the further down you go the closer you get to the membership people. Another words people that live there in campers.They could have been the people complaining all along. WTF do I know though. The owner of the park could have trying to get some slept!

Maybe we should see who all in the famABBly got RV sites and where they are?


LikeToSmoke - 9/13/2007 at 06:54 PM

There are plenty of RV sites in The Loop area. I booked yesterday and had my pick. Of course this is not a good area for jams as mentioned before, but is a good place to set up an RV. There are some full hookup spots still available.

Sue, they're all RV sites, but you don't necessarily have to have an RV on them. A lot of folks get them and tent camp on them, just for the convenience of the electricity.


MotherTeresa - 9/14/2007 at 02:31 PM

They are now charging a pretty penny for those RV sites compared to what they used to be before Wanee got popular.


Krishna - 9/14/2007 at 02:35 PM

We all need to face facts.............Wanee is getting to be wayyyy bigger than it has in the past.

Some of them are 'pull through', tho' - which I think means the A&B' are side by side, I'm not sure....?
(we got cut off...)

Also, when I called back to SOS the office today- it seems who ever told me the RV sites were all booked apparently was looking at the wrong Festival/dates -
And there are still plenty of RV sites open for Wannee! Yipee!!!

The A & B sites are end to end. The A sites are road frontage and the B sites are behind the A sites.

So, do we want to move up River Road and be closer to the artist bus/load in area, which is near the gravel road towards the Hilton, or do we want to stay where we're at? IIRC, there are some decent shade trees down that way.


LinnieXX - 9/14/2007 at 06:22 PM

i say lets move down some, it will get us away from the cabins and put us closer to an "in' door to the big stage. (unless they actually open a gate in the long fence this year, god forbid)

Having not yet stayed in a cabin, I can't answer that with certainty, but I can say this. They have toilets and showers.

This would work well.
I'm perfectly happy anyWaneewhere.


BigDaveOnBass - 9/14/2007 at 09:09 PM

OK, here it is from the General Manager of SOSMP....

We can't use the dining hall/bar area because it would require security personnel. Renting the place is cost prohibitive anyway, at $650 for the evening. It's already being used Friday night anyway, so we'd be lucky to get in by midnight anyway.

Secondly, they're saying unless we play acoustically, we stand a very good chance of being shut down. I've already stated that I think it's because of our close proximity to the cabins. Now I'm sure of it. Also, we have been getting larger and larger crowds, which they probably feel is a security risk (fights and/or drunk, obnoxious people.)

So.........it sounds to me like the Campfire Jam will have to be Thursday only, or just acoustic on Friday.

As they say, all good things come to an end. Imagine that, someone complaining about music at a music festival.

I'm bummed....and it's time to go home. Y'all have a good weekend.


susea - 9/14/2007 at 10:31 PM

Oh no Dave...I'm sorry to hear this...Sounds like Thursday is the Jam night and Fri the acoustic thang...plus we will all be together which is a wonderful time as well... keep that chin up and you enjoy your weekend too!

There are camp sites right in front of the Helen's Hilton compound with electrical hookups. We have been borrowing electricity for 3 years now from those sites.

It would be nice to have everyone together in one area next year......


Henry and I agree with this, but Grace and Ian don't. They like having the best of both worlds, and moving between them...

quote:
Helen's Hilton shuts down wayyyyy too early for the River Rd crew.....we don't want to wake up the kids & the "early birds" that stay over there!
No disrespect....I love each & every one of you in the Hilton area w/ your way kind & gracious hearts.....you always welcome everyone w/ open arms!
But our RR crew are more like the Wookies when it comes to the late night festivities!<-I think you know what I mean!

imho:
I think it would be respectful of the Hilton to keep the RR compound party elsewhere.

And, yes, I do have - ulterior motives: ie personal agendas ie kids - in mentioning this.

It is very peaceful there for late night. My kids prefer camping down there for that reason.

I won't presume to speak for anybody else, but it would be nice if we could preserve Helen's as the descrete retreat sanctuary from sensory overload.
It is very much family oriented down there, and the smallest children (not mine!) in our other famabblies should be a huge factor in this.

Having said that, Helen's is on one side of the road and the RV sites are on the other. It could be set up in a way that the music faced away from the Hilton.
This could still be problematic, however, b/c the parking down there can get gridlocked.


This is where we are at Magfest. I am bringing PA and all. Not the Wanee Jam but I will most likely see how much we can get away with.

The thing is late April can really be hot. There are no trees there. I will have it faced towards a horse pasture. We will see at Magfest.


bluedad - 9/15/2007 at 03:19 AM

No electric jam...

Looks like I''ll really have to buy an acoustic now....

And we really haven't had an acoustic Wanee Jam until the end on Saturday night this year....

2008 will still be a blast....


BigDaveOnBass - 9/15/2007 at 03:25 AM

Since we (me and FarmerMaggie) already have sites 228A&B, 230A&B and 232A&B reserved on River Road, and they are in the general area of the last three Campfire Jams, we might as well stay there and take advantage of the nice shade trees. Maybe we'll try to do an electric jam Thursday afternoon and early evening, do an acoustic jam on Friday night, and hopefully there will be another late night dTb jam at the Mushroom Stage on Saturday. How does that sound?

Krishna - 9/15/2007 at 01:53 PM

I think everyone needs to keep the park on the down low about what's goin on(like we have in the past years).....& everything will work itself out just fine!
Just remember.......if park security shows up & tells us to turn off the electric jams......then shut it down for a half an hour & then move it into a full fledged acoustic jam!

Everyone's killer Wanee vibes won't get stomped on!........you always gotta find ways to work around "the man"!


BigDaveOnBass - 9/15/2007 at 02:37 PM

Krishna, I don't know how we can keep it on the down low, especially seeing how it's grown over the last three years. And I've had contact with park officials about trying to work something out on the jams, so now they know all about us (or at least me) now.

I've not been to jail yet, and if I'm ever going to go, this would be as good a reason as any. I think I'd rather go to jail in my home town, if I had to go. At least I know some people and could perhaps call in a favor. Still, I'd like to keep my record clean, if at all possible.


leftyblues - 9/15/2007 at 02:42 PM

Dave, there will be no jail...as i recall, that stuff we did the first year was awesome..small amps, one PA speaker in a tightly condensed circle...friday morning at 11 am until whenever, friday night 11:30 til whenever, then acoustic, sat morning 10am - the show starts..

if i have come to know anything about you dave, it is that you have a heart of gold and that you always do anything you can to make the vibe great for others..no matter what comes down, it will be..ALL GOOD..

True.....but there are ALOT of events that are going to be happening from now til Wanee.........so it may not be so fresh in their mind......if you just quit calling & reminding them!(LOL)

I know that they'll definitely remember us & hear us & alot of the guys that were hangin in the crowd that were part of the SOS park were even ENJOYING the jams!
But I think alot of their big concern & freak out is crowd control........but I thought that I was helping control the crowd alright!

BigDaveOnBass - 9/16/2007 at 08:16 PM

Ah, screw it. Full speed ahead with the Campfire Jams in 2008! We'll play until they tell us to stop, that is, as long as they don't shut us down before 2AM. They set the precident in 2007. Now they got to live with it. We'll play as long as we can Friday night, and go to a quiet acoustic set after that, if we need to.

DOWN WITH THE ESTABLISHMENT!!

Last year, we had the closest power hookup to the Hilton for King_B's RV. The folks on the other side of us played Susan sooooo loud, the RV was shakin! The only thing that made them turn it down (not us!) was the amazing storm that came through. If nobody asked them to shut it down, I have a hard time believing the park would shut you guys down in that area. After Pedro played at our site when ya'll were shut down, TourPros talked about wanting to actually bring a flatbed trailer for a stage. So.... If you guys want, find out the site #'s (MotherTeresa may remember) and reserve them! There is more then enough room for the campfire jam and by getting there early next year (Tuesday or Wednesday) it'd be a piece of cake blocking it all off. Warjag and Linnie can scope it out at Magfest. You can even put up signs at the River Road Coumpound saying "We've Move" with directions if ya want


susea - 9/18/2007 at 12:58 AM

franknjam - 9/18/2007 at 02:59 AM

We are pumped and will be ready to throw down like last year.

I do believe the 2am curfew is established by the park...as security put it plainly last year "Fatasmic doesn't own the park, we do...shut it down or we'll pull the power." They had to pull the power.

You can also get some RV sites that have real low numbers that will be behind the ones I am talking about that will face the dirt road.

I didn't have time to see the Wookie Mama on Jesse/warjag's trailer til it was wayyyy too late though!!

OH yeah!, and I'll be the towel dwarf for Linnie when she's done with her rootbeer bath. No matter were we end up something tells me Mark will be right dead in the Campjam epicenter. Wouldn't be the same without him and his young wife herding us in and making our special RRC have the coolest atmosphere ever. I think they must have a few dozen "love vibe magnets" that they strategically plant around our area cause when you walk in you instantly feel it. A feeling that makes you want to never leave.

if my memory serves, King_B had 41, which was one of the last on that row????
let me know. I am calling SOTSMP tomorrow to book SOMETHING!

I havent read back through all the pages yet. Anybody come with a wish list of bands yet???

We still break out the DVD every once in a while.


Krishna - 9/25/2007 at 02:20 PM

This thread is gonna be 100 pages deep by Wanee!!!.........I can feel it!!

He and my son Josh will definitely bring their geetars though.

Any particulars listed yet on the ticket sales?

April 11 and 12, 2008.

Party is starting as early as April 9th or 10th and will certainly go through the 13th.


danik56 - 12/23/2007 at 05:27 PM

Any idea if ABB will be in the line-up this year ? any other confirmed participents ? I promised my son who just turned 21 to take him to see ABB this year and we really hope it will work out


BigDaveOnBass - 12/23/2007 at 05:32 PM

Dani, ABB is ALWAYS the headliner at WaneeFest. WaneeFest is the brain child of Butch Trucks. If history repeats itself, and I have no reason to believe it won't, you can count on ABB, Gov't Mule, Derek Trucks Band and Oteil and the Peacemakers performing. Everything after that is gravy.


danik56 - 12/23/2007 at 07:25 PM

My fingers are crossed. can't wait to see ABB, Mule, and Derek's band all in one weekend.
any idea when tickets go out on sale ? any hotel you guys can recommend for a first time visitor in the area ? (I will drive from Orlando airport or Atlanta)


susea - 1/3/2008 at 06:57 PM

Should hear real soon about ticket sales now that the NYE thing is over. The Best Western and Holiday Inn Express or Econo Lodge are all super close by. I'd advise getting a reservation soon.

I am soooooooo ready to WANEEEEEEEEEE

We are getting fired up about it too.......Looking forward to camping those 3 nights. I did purchase a tent type shower/portapotty. I remember the water pumps going out last year. Though the river felt great, I dont think Susie will go for bathing there. I can still see those folks leaping out of that huge tree across the river. I am getting to old for that but it looked like fun. A couple of folks were talking about renting a RV. Thats not a bad idea.....
The Golf Cart thing looked fun too.

Brock - 1/3/2008 at 07:10 PM

Funny you should mention it. I was talking to a friend who went to the Bear Creek fest there in Nov who reports that the undercover cop thing is still prevalent down there. That won't stop me, but beware of local revenue collection agents in plain clothes.


BigDaveOnBass - 1/3/2008 at 07:16 PM

I think it should be said publicly, but if you imbibe in ways other than alcohol consumption, you should only do it within the confines of your own camp site, with people you know and trust, and not get caught passing around a bone that you yourself didn't roll, bring or otherwise indulge in. Don't buy from strangers and don't sell to strangers. I'm preaching to the choir, and don't want anyone to think I condone the sale or use of illegal substances, but I definitely don't want anyone to get caught up in the long arm of the law. Just passing on words of wisdom.


rottinpeach - 1/3/2008 at 07:38 PM

I got there early last year around 3-4PM Thursday. But remember talk about every 3rd car being searched before entering the gates. Now I dont know what day or when it was. The coast was clear when we arrived.


This reminds me that happened at this years Xmas Jam. We sat on a exit ledge at the time the police were allowing us access. If we left we couldnt come back. There were two police ladies standing beside where we were sitting. We were above the floor area looking down on the folks. I tapped my friends shoulder when we saw a guy fire up a pipe. He was hitting it hard to, you know, had sparks popping from it. One of the police ladies shined her flashlight at the guy. The guy didnt see the light. Her flashlight lit him up pretty good. A couple of guys behind the pipe smoker saw the lady shining her light. He tapped him on the shoulder, and pointed up at us on the ledge. The guy firing the pipe up turned smiled and held up his pipe and shouted out a loud hell yeahhhhhhhh. Of course for some reason he didnt realize it was the cops. He then realized, stuck the pipe back in his jacket and turned back towards the stage. My friend and I were kind of chuckling about it. Both lady officers, turned their heads towards us and started busting out laughing too. They didnt want anyone to see that, but shows they are human too.................No security on the floor ever came out to check him.
Jam went on....................everybody had a good time.



Just got to be smart and discrete...............some of the undercover at Wanee seemed like they were on a mission.
Kind of like they were being videoed for an upcoming Cops show.


MotherTeresa - 1/3/2008 at 07:39 PM

Yep Dave is right. I live in Tallytown, a few counties over from Suwannee county,and festivals are a money making event for the county. Been going to the SOSMP since 1999 and that's always been the case. Undercover for sure. Last year I was hanging at the HTN tent and ATF agents were busting underage drinkers left and right and hanging by the tent for the light source while they interrogated their suspects. NOT a pleasant sight.


rottinpeach - 1/3/2008 at 07:50 PM

I never have loved tents so much, now I know why.

Yeah, I checked into it last year, too, John. I told them that I wanted to RENT one, not BUY one.

I still have my old pop-up, but it's getting a little weathered. I'm hoping to maybe talk my dad into letting me buy his 17' travel trailer soon, or at least use it for Wanee 2008.

Anyone think its strange that no artists have been announced. I had already bought my ticket by now the last 3 years.

SMP people told me that they had the concert all booked for the 19th and 20th then the ABB people called and said they must move the concert date up a week? Now they will have to have the big stage setup there for 2 weeks to have the Suwannee River Jam on the 25-27th. Strange! Maybe because of Easter?

Scroll down you'll see Wanee April 11th and 12th. Last year we knew about ticket sale the 2nd or 3rd week of January.


BigDaveOnBass - 1/5/2008 at 03:19 PM

Seeing how the ABB is always the headliner for this festival, I can't see WaneeFest happening without them. If Wanee is on the SOSMP calendar, then I'm going to assume ABB will be there. If, and that's a BIG if, the Brothers aren't on the bill, I might reconsider going...

For now, WaneeFest is a go, I'm assuming The ABB is playing. There's no need for hysteria at this moment.

Last night I bought a plane ticket to Jacksonville for Wanee weekend. The price was right and the flight times were good, so I bit. I'm traveling on Southwest Airlines (they have yet to lose my luggage ) so if Wanee has a much different lineup this year, I can use that ticket $ towards another flight if I change my mind.


Haisija - 1/5/2008 at 03:32 PM

It would still be very very cool to see a family band and professionals show at Horse Pens 40 in Abalama.

I have been looking too!! If you book Jet Blue, it's only $30 to cancel and switch. Terri, good idea to try another airline this go around!

The Horse Pens 40 is so cool and I too heard Brent mention about booking a few of "the" bands perhaps the end of May???

See if El Monte RV is in your area, or near Wanee. I rented from them last year and it was WAY cheaper than everyone else, and for no reason other than they just want to be way cheaper. It's not like the RV was anything less than the others; as a matter of fact, ours was brand new and very clean.

Regarding drugs and alcohol, it's worth mentioning that there were checkpoints set up outside the park last year stopping random cars on the way into the mark. They were searching and they had dogs out.



I am still liking the tents. Those RV's look pretty cool and comfy, nothing like the open fire, laying in the tent and listening to the jams at 1:30 in the morning. Hearing everybody having a great time. Fire popping. Occasional hoot owl.

I love dogs, but the search ones can knock that smile off your face quick. Just got to be smarter....




danik56 - 1/6/2008 at 09:56 AM

OK, I have made flight reservatiion for me and my son from Tel-aviv to Atlanta arriving on April 5. I need to have the tickets issued by Wednesday this week. Because of the rising fuel cost, seems the airlines are not willing to hold the ticket price as long as they did in the past, at least not for the discounted fares.
If anyone here has any info relating to WANEE festival NOT taking place on April 10-11, PLEASE let me know before I purchase the airline tickets. THANKS !!!


susea - 1/6/2008 at 01:32 PM

We are all in the waiting for more knowledge my friend. The Spirit of Suwanee has the dates posted for April 11 and 12 but that's all anybody knows. If you have checked the box to receive newsletters here then you'll be informed through the Peach-O-Gram!

Oh ya dude, you can still do all that... just when you're ready to crash you get a roof over your head and some AC. The roof comes in real handy when it's the last night of the festival and a freakin' hurricane comes blowin thru the music park!

It was also nice to have the microwave and stove, and your own shower. But to be honest, I wouldn't do it again. As a matter of fact, I'm done with Wanee I think. At least for now...



That was awesome. Perfect timing too. I remember leaving Sunday morning and seeing the lake at the big stage. I slept like a baby in my tent, amazingly dry too.


Peachfan8 - 1/6/2008 at 05:49 PM

Speaking of Horsepens and Hayseeds, I never heard if I was in or not? I guess the board is still out. However, I think that the show at Horsepens is a must! That would be soooo awesome!

Same thing here! I went and chilled at Derek's late set, then packed up & went to the tent (down by the river) noticing the wind starting to pick up. I joined my old lady in the tent and passed out and slept like a baby. We woke up dry as a bone like nothing ever happened. When we got out of the tent it looked like a hurricane went through. I remember the dry sandy trails from the day before looking like the river had re-routed through them..... THen on the way out seeing the main field under the water, man. I had some pics of the "lake" but can't seem to find them for the life of me now! Damn! Oh well, see ya this year!

Some advise for a first timer in Wanee. If I'm staying at a near by hotel and not inside the camp grounds, can I drive and park my car near the concert field or do I have to park the car in a remote area and get a cab ?
Is there only one stage or multiple ? How early before a scheduled show do you need to get there to be able to grab a decent spot ?


BigDaveOnBass - 1/7/2008 at 01:35 PM

Dani, there are two stages, The Peach Stage (larger concert stage, open concert field) and The Mushroom Stage (which is a smaller stage set in the tall pine trees in an amphitheater setting.)

You should be able to find parking for your car on site. Since I usually camp in the RV section, I always have provision for parking. But the primitive campers usually park there cars where they camp, too, so, I would say, park where you can and hoof it to the concerts. Everything is in walking distance at the park. No worries. And between The River Road Compound and Helen's Hilton, you'll have a place where you can stop and rest.


Benjamin - 1/7/2008 at 02:00 PM

Up until last year, you could park for free just left of the entrance to the camp grounds....last year they wised up and started charging!

I don't know who you might know....but BDOB's suggestion worked for us - we parked near freinds with RVs.

A couple other things -

Yes, all stages and just about everything are within walking distance.

Driving at night after the shows - BE CAREFUL! Folks will be walking all over the roads within the campsite, plus those crazy golf cart drivers will be out in droves....you don't want to run anyone over.
Also - I never got pulled over, but I'd be careful about driving under the influence, or holding anything in the area....local cops have a bad reputation...

This is how my family & I did it last year. We drove in daily with the entrance pass for our vehicle obtained on the first day in, met up with some friends from here, & asked permission to park on their camp site, which we did without issue all three days.

As for finding a good spot to sit for a show there seems to be more than enough room for anybody & everybody! Pack your car with water, beer & food- things that they will not allow you to take in front of the stage since there are vendors insdie the gated field.

We found too, that there are many food vendors around the park too. We brought a bunch of food to cook at our campsite. This year we will cut back on what we cook and just purchase food from the vendors. A lot less mess to clean up and less trash. You will be able to
find all types of food. The big stage has a huge area to sit. Plenty of room to throw down a quilt or set up chairs if you sit a little further back. Its a great time........

What is the purpose of gating the stage field? To create a vendor monopoly area? I attended the '00 Springfest and could wander about w/ my own beer without a problem. It was great. The local constabulary and this are harshing my mellow about Wanee.


banesh - 1/7/2008 at 05:11 PM

Hey Brock... Since 2000, lots of things needed to be changed at the park. I actually witnessed a golf cart plowing over some folks sitting in their lawn chairs at the big stage and I promise you, I thought they were killed Ė you should have seen what was left of their chairs! The golf cart drivers were drunk as skunks. Another reason is, depending on the color of armband you have on, determines if you are a day fester or a camper. This prevents noncampers from roaming the camping area stealing from the unattended campsites. We use to be able to drive the golf carts or ride bikes from one stage to another by the general store or even straight across the big field to the amphi-theatre but that is no longer allowed either. Again, people were getting run over. I actually ran into someone with my bike - fortunately, it was a friend and he wasn't hurt. I'm all for the park doing what they can to minimize folks getting hurt or robbed. As many of you know, Luke was actually wiped out by a bike last year and was actually hurt. They (the park) can't protect us all (sorry Luke!) but unfortunately, things needed to be changed to protect us festers and to prevent lawsuits. This years big change is that less the 50 golf carts will be available to rent. Why? Cuz folks actually loaded them up in their trucks and drove them out of the park - they STOLE them! The ones stolen were not owned by the park - they had them brought in by the truckload for renting making them available to us but they ended up having to pay for all those stolen carts themselves. It's a shame all these rules had to be implemented but these are the days we live in now. Trust me, I HATE rules but at the same time, I understand the need. I've been going to this park since 1980 and you would not believe how it has grown in attendance!

Stay mellow my friend. With all the rules, its still a great time. The golf carts looked fun last year, but wondered why they werent clamping down on the drinking and driving while on the carts. We had a better time walking around. The river was a ways out. We got lucky a neighboring camper rode us down to the river. It was a good swim.

Hey Helen, I saw the map on your myspace pictures. Is The River Road sign on the map where you all camped? I got to find it this year.........great pics.

Sister Krishna, let me tell ya, I'm ITCHING to go. REALLY!


BigDaveOnBass - 1/7/2008 at 07:44 PM

I'll go out on a limb and make this statement...

If you truly are a huge ABB fan, two things you MUST do...Beacon and Wanee. If there was a third to that list, maybe it would be Red Rocks...I don't know. (Haven't done Red Rocks yet, so my opinion is unqualified.)

One's not better than the other. They are completely different experiences. I didn't think I'd ever want to do The Beacon, but I am DAMN GLAD I did!! I had a large time, for sure, and I may have done it before the opportunity was lost to do it...in the style I had been told about. Beacon 2008 looks to be full of uncertainty at this point.

For me, Wanee is the shizzle just because it is so laid back, the park is expansive and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg to do. Not to mention the variety of the music you can listen to.


greggswoman - 1/7/2008 at 07:47 PM

Well, Dave, I agree. It's a matter of budgeting for me. Red Rocks was AWESOME!!! And the Beacon was a fantastic experience for me. Now for Wanee...I plan to hit NYC again this year, so things look uncertain for Wanee. But I'm DEFINITELY going to try.


BigDaveOnBass - 1/7/2008 at 08:46 PM

Wanee comes before NYC this year. I bet you can do Wanee and still have cabbage left over for NYC.

A car/ van full of people makes gas a little less expensive.

I am also weighing the fact that it will take MUCH longer to drive, and I may not have that much time to be away.


Benjamin - 1/8/2008 at 01:36 PM

Anybody who from up north ways who wants to car pool...let me know!

I live in Northern Virginia and drove last year - took me about 10-11 hours gewtting down to Florida.

On the way back - we stopped in SC for the night though - no way we were gonna drive straight thru after staying up all night

You should get a decent rate if you book your tickets now. It cost about the same to fly than drive over long distances anymore. But you would have to figure in a rental if needed.......What airline was it offering 10 one way tickets in advance. I think it was Skybus or something like that. May get lucky http://www.skybus.com/ They have a hub in Jacksonville Fla too. 10 seats for 10 bucks every flight.

Does Wanee ever sell out? If/when tix go on sale, is there any urgency in buying them early on (like an earlybird price)? I plan to go, but like to keep my options open.

I dont think they sell out, but I think the price was cheaper if you bought early, Something like 120.00 if your bought early, 140-150 if you bought at the gate. Something close to that.

I read in another thread that DTB will open for Santana on April 5th in Conneticut. this is a week before Wanee. Santana is going to be playing in Atlantic city on April 11.
Do we need to worry about Derek not playing in Wanee this year ?

Let's hope not, Dani. Derek's Saturday midnight jam is legendary.

I thought the same thing when I saw that thread.


Brock - 1/9/2008 at 04:12 PM

The Atlantic City shows are at a smallish venue of 2200 seats as I recall. Don't think Carlos will need Derek to sell these few seats.

what needs to be added here is that less than ten minutes after derek played his final notes, the sky opened up and it rained like a MOFO, first drops in at least a few days.


BigDaveOnBass - 1/10/2008 at 04:46 PM

I don't think it was 10 minutes after the Derek set, Linnie. It took that long just to walk back to camp, and then we had the acoustic guitar circle going....then it began to rain lightly, then the bottom fell out sometime after I crashed, because I remember it rained so hard, that the sound of the rain hitting the camper kept me awake for a while. But still.....what a weekend!!

LOL!! The place where I worked use to hold jam sessions in our city park every week. My boss would alternate between guitar and bass. One day she jokingly said to me, while playing, "You are going to learn to play bass!" She sure was shocked when I walked in to work, picked up a bass and said, "Ok. Teach me how to play this thing." LOL! That was back in 1995, and I've been the steady bass player ever since. I don't get to play as much as I used to, though.

I was quite impressed and then I was filling him in on tour stuff and I am trying to do a few of the southern shows and get a Mut-Gumree visit in there too.

Pam - 1/11/2008 at 03:39 PM

Kim is doing alright. Give him a call for sure, he will teach you about all kinds of things! Football, lawnmower repairs, motorcycles, how to do shots over the phone, NASCAR, and how not to use up your cell phone minutes. Just be careful when you call because he tells you when he is nekkid and just got out of the rain locker.


heineken515 - 1/11/2008 at 03:41 PM

Hate to say it, but I echo what some others have said...if the Bros and/or Mule aint there...I will be forced to rethink my blind devotion to Wanee.

Shots over the phone, I bet he goes through a lot of phones too. Tends to rust things up a little......LOL


danik56 - 1/11/2008 at 08:07 PM

I have feeling from what I read here that a lot of folks won't be coming to Wanee if the lineup will not include ABB and Mule. Is there a way to contact ABB officials to find out what the story is as far as tour dates for 2008 ?


BigDaveOnBass - 1/11/2008 at 08:13 PM

I have to be honest, I'd rethink it too. Wanee has become a tradition for me, but it IS all about The Allman Brothers Band and it's family of bands.


bluedad - 1/11/2008 at 08:48 PM

I think "Ole Blue" is what Mitzi named her guitar. If she was talking about me.....

Hope the ABB or dTb headline...if not......I don't know


M.W.Jones - 1/11/2008 at 08:55 PM

I moved to Middle Georgia last year after spending the previous 9 years in the Mountain West. Attended my first Wanee last year. I have been to a lot of festivals all over the country through the years, but I must say that my experience at Wanee was hands down the best I have yet to experience. I have seen the Allmans play quite a bit in various places over the past 16 years, but I have never experienced the true nature of what the extended Allman Brother family was all about until Wanee last year. Amazing place for a festival and the best musical community (bands, friends, and fans) on the face of the planet.


BigDaveOnBass - 1/11/2008 at 09:06 PM

Welcome M.W.Jones. Did you make it by The River Road Compound by chance?


greggswoman - 1/11/2008 at 09:09 PM

Welcome M.W.Jones!

Yes...ol'Blue is my bass...but that is a good question? Just how ARE we gonna get bluedad over there with all them sheep??

My two pennies, and y'all know this anyway, if Gregg is there I am there.

I saw GA&F last year in NY and it was great. beleive it or not but my seat was in the 1st row which gives you a different perspective.
If Gregg will be there at Wanee this year in any shape or form, I think I'll try to make trip.
It should be worth it.


M.W.Jones - 1/11/2008 at 09:17 PM

BIGDAVE,

I did make it to the River Road compound. Had a great time hanging out there. I really enjoyed the late night jams. I certainly hope you will be doing the same again this year. I really think what you all do there is representative of what Wanee and the whole Allman family scene is all about.

BigDave,

I do not think we actually met. I do remember seeing you playing bass. Everyone in the River Road Compound (and the whole festival grounds) was very nice. I brought some friends with me to Wanee, so we just enjoyed some casual conversations with people around the campground jams.


BigDaveOnBass - 1/11/2008 at 09:57 PM

MW, we'll be in nearly the same spot this year as we were last year, so be sure to come up and introduce yourself! Have fun!!

But.... but... this is CANDLEMASS!!!!!!!

Seeing as dTb are opening some dates for Santana, maybe Carlos will show up....

I'm stilll hoping (and praying) for a traditional WaneeFest line up:

ABB
Gov't Mule
dTb
Oteil & the Peacemakers
Devon Allman & Honeytribe
Jack Pearson Band

Others I'd like to see this year:

Lefty Collins & The No Mercy Band
The Skydogs
The Tony Tyler Band
The Hayseed Mafia

As soon as the ABB announce, I'm buying tickets. Planning to stay at Helen's Hilton this year (don't have the dough for a cabin anymore!) and looking forward to THE greatest company in the whole dang world!
Also hoping to use the airfare south to do some scouting round Florida for my big relocation effort. Snow storm's coming on strong tonight and planning on this to be my LAST season!!! Whooo hoooo.

Dani, don't be discouraged. I'm sure they'll announce the line up soon enough. Like I said, WaneeFest is an Allman Brothers Band festival. I'd be REAL surprised if they didn't play.

Everybody hang in there I know it's frustrating to have to wait, but what can you do?

In case this hasn't already been posted here, Jon Stoll, the founder and president of Fantasma Productions, died over the weekend from the results of a stroke and brain cancer. This was published widely in South Florida newspapers, so I don't think I'm betraying privileged information. In fact, here you go....

By _THOM SMITH_ (mailto:thom_smith@pbpost.com)
Palm Beach Post Staff Writer
Sunday, January 13, 2008
UPDATED: 2:05 a.m. January 13, 2008
Jon Stoll, who turned a teenage love of rock 'n' roll into one of the largest
independent promotion and performance companies in the nation, died Saturday
at Good Samaritan Medical Center after an extended illness. He was 54.
While on vacation in August in Aspen, Colo., Mr. Stoll had a stroke that
required surgery to remove a blood clot in his brain. About a month later, he
returned to a rehabilitation center in Boynton Beach, but complications,
including a brain cancer, resulted in a transfer a few weeks ago to Good Samaritan
in West Palm Beach.

According to his son Jesse, Mr. Stoll had good days and bad days,
occasionally communicating with family members and medical staffers, but his condition
had begun to decline in recent weeks.
Tall, brash and usually sporting a full head of hair, Mr. Stoll seemed larger
than life. As a 15-year-old student in Mamaroneck, N.Y., he decided to raise
money for his school by staging a battle of the bands.
He also gained valuable experience working backstage at New York-area
theaters, and at 18 he was managing a rock band.
While at Bryant College in Smithfield, R.I., he continued to stage shows, and
when his parents bought a condominium in Fort Lauderdale, he soon began
promoting concerts at South Florida drive-in theaters.
"For $3 or $4 you could go see a concert, film, etc.," he said in 1985. "We'd
draw 6,000 to 10,000 people."
From that sprang Fantasma Productions, which promoted concerts, staged trade
shows and published Easy Times, a youth-oriented weekly newspaper.
Gradually, the Fantasma empire expanded to Miami and Fort Lauderdale, then throughout
Florida, the Southeast and other major venues, including in Las Vegas.
Fantasma also was responsible for booking acts for SunFest, Mizner Park
Amphitheater in Boca Raton and the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in
Hollywood.
Mr. Stoll, however, never forgot his adopted hometown.
In 1984 he bought the Carefree Center, a derelict movie theater and bowling
alley on South Dixie Highway. He began a foreign film series and brought small
concerts into the theater.
He opened an art gallery and a small restaurant, and the old bowling alley
became Comedy Corner, one of the top venues for live comedy in the nation and a
proving ground for budding young comics such as Dan Whitney, alias Larry the
Cable Guy.
By 1987, Fantasma had grown to 50 employees who booked and managed more than
500 concerts a year.
After hurricanes in 2005 damaged the Carefree Center beyond repair, he bought
an abandoned church just north of Southern Boulevard, off Parker Avenue, and
created The Theatre, another small concert hall.
In the mid-'90s, Mr. Stoll was one of the few independent promoters who
refused buyout attempts by large corporations, maintaining that it was bad for
business and bad for artists.
"I just think it's unfortunate that there are less options for artists,'' he
told The New York Times in 2006. "If you have no options, then you have to
deal with one buyer - and whatever they decide to pay you.''
In 2000, he was named Independent Promoter of the Year at the 12th Annual
Pollstar Concert Industry Awards in Las Vegas, and in 2007 he served as
president of the National Association of Concert Promoters.
He rubbed shoulders with the likes of Frank Sinatra; Liza Minnelli; Sting;
Elton John; Bruce Springsteen; Kris Kristofferson; Willie Nelson; Crosby,
Stills and Nash; the Red Hot Chili Peppers; and Faith Hill.
He was never happier than with family and friends. Shortly before his stroke,
he drove his three younger children, ages 12, 8 and 4, in a motor home from
Palm Beach to Las Vegas.
"We had a ball," he said. "The kids loved it. I did, too!"
Survivors include his wife, Lori, and his adult children, Jesse and Lauren,
from his first marriage. He also is survived by three children from his
marriage to Lori - L.J., 12; Jack, 8; and Liana, 4.
Services will be 11 a.m. Wednesday at Temple Israel, 1901 N. Flagler Drive,
West Palm Beach. Arrangements are being handled by Menorah Gardens."

Now think about it for a second--Having your founder and president get gravely ill, then pass away, is going to throw a monkey wrench into the works of any event. For those of you who have seen the Wanee DVD, Jon is featured as one of the major movers and shakers of the festival. This is almost certainly the reason the Wanee announcement is running late.

However, one of my contacts at Wanee assures me that Wanee will go on "because that is the way Jon would have wanted it," or words to that effect.

So like I said, hang in there!


susea - 1/14/2008 at 11:08 PM

Oh how sad Rob. This is the first I've seen this here...

Rob, this info was on Pollstar today, so you need not worry about disclosure of it. Puts our scheduling anxiety into perspective. I was surprised to see the following in the article; there must be something in the water up there Vinsanity:

As a 15-year-old student in Mamaroneck, N.Y., he decided to raise
money for his school by staging a battle of the bands.

This is truely sad. from what was posted here (and I never heard about Mr. Stoll before) looks like it would be hard for anyone to pick up the slack.

There is a big fire pit in the craft village. perfect for an acoustic jam.

But If you are looking for a charity to get their attention, they have a kids music camp that is supported by donations. http://myspace.com/suwanneespirit .

they allow auctions and such in the music hall for fund raisers.

The guy you have to get in touch with is James cornett

My feeling exactly!


Benjamin - 1/18/2008 at 11:06 PM

I enjoyed the couple of Ratdog performances when they opened for the ABB this summer....and the fans were okay too.

On the other hand, the followers of Weir could change the feel of the previously ABB focused Wanee.

Geeze....I'm sounding just like all the old Grateful Dead related band fans when the ABB was the headliner for the Gathering of the Vibes a few years ago.
A few people were afraid a bunch of drunk redneck southern rock fans would ruin things....that wasn't the case and the ABB opened with Mountain Jam and everyone felt alright.

This was the day after Dickey Betts played, and after a day of dTb, acoustic Warren, Susan Tedeschi, and Gov't Mule....like a precursor to Wanee!


jpfudd5 - 1/19/2008 at 02:17 AM

What is the Ratdog stereotype fan like? I have never seen them.

Met too Terry... In addition to your list, I'd love to see the Radiators back since I MISSED them last year - what a show on that Wanee DVD! CRS, Tinsley, Cowboy would be sweet... Pretty safe to assume we'll have ABB, Mule, Soul Stew, HT, BC and Scrapo! It'll be what it'll be so bring on the announcement! Looks like rain and/or really cold this entire holiday weekend and since I can't make the Big House event tonight in Macon ( ), think I'll get back to working on my Wanee list and plan of attack for the campsite this year Everyone have a SAFE weekend in this snowy, cold, wet road conditions!!!!

Pretty safe to assume we'll have ABB, Mule, Soul Stew, HT, BC and Scrapo! It'll be what it'll be so bring on the announcement! Looks like rain and/or really cold this entire holiday weekend and since I can't make the Big House event tonight in Macon ( ), think I'll get back to working on my Wanee list and plan of attack for the campsite this year Everyone have a SAFE weekend in this snowy, cold, wet road conditions!!!!


It's snowing like crazy in the Hotlanta suburbs. Driving down to Macon now. Am I nuts or what? It's beautiful!

This is too bad. Then I see the following GB post from horracegammet(no, I had not heard this):


As many of you may have heard, Wanee has been pushed back, so it's looking like late April. So that's when I plan on having my little shindig. I'd like to get Jaimoe in on this, as he played on Barry's Blues From Mars, Vol 2 cd, but have no commitment as yet. I will definitely keep y'all posted.

Benjamin - 1/20/2008 at 01:17 AM

Compare that "late April" statement with the dTb tour schedule and it would make it impossible for Derek Trucks (or the dTb) to be at Wanee......

Hmmm....best to just wait and see.....


WharfRat - 1/20/2008 at 04:21 AM

Late April would make it awfully close to the NYC shows

Yikes.


danik56 - 1/20/2008 at 04:40 AM

Late April means no DTB in WANEE and therefore no ABB, which means I ain't going.
The only weekend stil open in the DTB tour schedule is April 11-12, so guess until announced otherwise we can still hope..


banesh - 1/20/2008 at 04:44 AM

The Spirit of Suwanee Park does have one other weekend open - April 18th and 19th. Sure hope it stays the 11th and 12th for all those that already book their flights. There are no other dates available later in April - no way SOS would cancel the Suwanee River Jam for Wanee.


danik56 - 1/20/2008 at 09:47 AM

April 18-19 was the original date SOSP had on their web site for Wanee and it was moved forward to April 11-12 maybe because GA&F are already booked for April 18 in Boston.
It seems it is either going to be April 11-12, or a lot of folks won't be coming due to
no ABB.


warjag - 1/20/2008 at 01:21 PM

I am going to email Smp today. They have not announced the Suwannee River Jam lineup also. My wife loves that one and has been asking me whats up?

By now I have already paid for Wanee and River Jam. Not this year.


susea - 1/20/2008 at 01:53 PM

I think that it's holding at the 11th and 12th. Rob had posted about Jon Stohl's passing and that this was most likely the hold up of things. Not sure about what or why Horace posted that except it may be a miss post...I hope.


banesh - 1/20/2008 at 11:49 PM

Lana just posted this in the GUESTBOOK
--------------------------------------
Hey there sweet family,

The Allman Brothers Band is deeply saddened by the passing of Fantasma founder and visionary of the Wanee Festival, Jon Stoll. The tradition of the festival will continue April 11 - 12. The confirmed line-up will be announced shortly.

Take care and know that you are loved,

Lana <--- Go Packers!!!

PGator - 1/22/2008 at 03:25 PM

The April 11 & 12th weekend is also the Tampa Bay Blues festival bringing some talent to Florida that weekend. Already confirmed for that festival are Robert Cray & Walter Trout. Maybe some of the acts for that show can also do Wanee.

Dani, book your flights. I talked to Kirk West, the ABB tour mystic (aka tour manager) this past Saturday, and he says the hold up has been with Jon Stoll's illness and subsequent death. He told me Wanee will happen, the official line up will be announced soon, but it includes the family bands (GM, dTb, O&TPM,) and his word on that is good enough for me.


danik56 - 1/23/2008 at 06:24 AM

I got my airline tickets today. Flying to JFK on 04/04. maybe I'll try to get tickets to see Santana and DTB in MSG on 04/08, and then off we go to Florida for my first Wanee.
Still need to get tickets for the flight to Florida, but I don't think that would be an Issue.

http://www.myspace.com/bryonlarrance

He was wondering if I had any footage from "High Pockets" in Gadsden. I don't but I did tell him I'd make him a DVD of what I do have and to PLEASE ask Jack for ya'll to play Wanee this year!!!!


M.W.Jones - 1/24/2008 at 02:43 PM

Susea, it ain't up to Jack whether they plat Wanee or not. It's actually up to you! And to others who will attend. Jack has wanted to play Wanee every year, BUT without an invitation, there ain't no use. Now, if ticketholders make their preferences known............
Really, the promotors make those decisions, not the bands. But it's nice to know that somebody wants Jack to be there.

By day or for both days. If you purchase for Friday and Saturday, you're allowed in the park on Thursday and can camp there Thursday night.


danik56 - 1/24/2008 at 08:27 PM

They charge for camping even for those who don't camp ?

Yeah it appears so:

Look at it this way:

camping is free should you choose to camp. You still get a nice bang for your buck for 2 days full of music.

Woo Hoo!

the damn page still isent working for me! it keeps saying cannot find server! its been doing this for a few weeks now.

BigDaveOnBass - 1/24/2008 at 09:51 PM

Primative camping is included in the price of tickets. If you have an RV and want to upgrade to an RV site (power and water hook ups) that will be extra.

I checked a few of the local hotels and no rooms are available. Guess I didn't act fast enough. Maybe I will try the hotels in Lake City.


susea - 1/24/2008 at 11:03 PM

Wow Dani, the rooms are already gone? I booked mine some time ago. You checked all three local hotels? Best Western, Holiday Inn Express and Econolodge? Did you call or check on line? The reason I ask is sometimes they are not full completely but on line they say they are...also, you can put your name on a wait list because people do cancel as it gets closer if things come up.

I checked the Holiday Inn online and no rooms for that weekend. I'll check Best Western today. has anyone tried the best western ? is it any good ?
I booked a room in Lake City just in case but I'm hoping to find a room near by. To bad I can't sleep on the ground due to my bad back.

No rooms at the Best Western either. I didn't know you can wait list for rooms. I'll try to call the hotels and ask about that.

Hello everyone, my name is Dave. I've been reading these boards for several months now and I dig the ABB bigtime, but I haven't introduced myself yet. I thought this might be a good place and time because I will be heading down to Wanee for the first time this april and I'm completely psyched. My buddy and I are road tripping it from Albany, New York and camping out for the weekend. Mother nature and great tunes, it doesn't get much better. It seems like there are a bunch of cool people on this board and I would love to jam with any of you fine folks while we're down there. I play guitar and my friend plays a little harmonica and sings a bit. If anyone wants to let us in on a jam I promise we'll show up with a big bottle of Jack Daniels ready to be poured out.

Dave, welcome to HTW, and absolutely, you'll be welcome to the jam!

Last year we had quite a few guitarists show up, and I don't know if everyone got a chance to play, so I think this year, we may need to do sign up sheets. That way, hopefully everyone will get a chance to play. As time draws nearer, I will do a roll call in this thread (or one similar) and try to get a feel for who all will be coming to jam and on what instruments. I'll take what we get from the roll call and use that as a foundation for the sign up sheet at the campfire jam.

Is it April yet???

Yes, you can park in the camping area.



hmmmn I got a tent for the back of my pickup, Big Blue that needs breaking in

Yes, I'm a Wanee virgin.........


ok a short list to help you plan:

sunscreen. bring it.
beer. dont forget it.
asprin. you might need it.
extra blankes. you wont regret it.
bug spray. you are gonna need it.
good shoes. you are going to walk alot.
bathing suit. optional, really.
biodegradable soap. to bathe in the suwanee. the showers at wanee last year where like two streams of water (or, like some have said "two monkees pissing on ya")





actually snag if you need anything special pm me and i can pack it in the trunk

Agreed; if you've ever backpacked, carcamping is the Waldorf. Did a Suwanee Springfest once. The thing I liked most was not leaving the site the whole time and just wandering about. The showers there were ok (w/ sandals for the floor), and the river's clean, but the shower lines were long and the river can be a ways. You guys know about Sunshowers? Mine's a 2.5 gal, but they come in other bigger sizes. Lay on ground in sun, after a few hrs, hot shower, no waiting (use washcloth). Not hotel quality, but it's a time saver. About $20.

Got the JamCam Chronicles Wanee 2007 yesterday which I watched in its entirity last night with the boys in the band and it pretty much cemented me and a couple of the boys making the trek down from the great white north to this years fest. Looking forward to it.........

Hey there sweet family,

As if y'all aren't keeping me busy enough with Beacon madness, here's some more ABBliss for you to spark on:

The Wanee final lineup was being discussed today. I don't know if it will be set in stone today, BUT look for an announcement and pre-sale on Feb. 4th. At least that's what's scheduled.

Stay tuned ...

Take care and know that you are loved - and driving me crazy :-)

moe. ???

Looks like once again the ABB will have to step it up

Personally, I don't like to see them or Ratdog on the bill only for the fact that it will make the festival more crowded IMHO. That being said, it does not mean that will keep me at home


pixielf - 1/30/2008 at 11:48 AM

I'm not thrilled either and where's dTb???


susea - 1/30/2008 at 11:56 AM

Yes, it will make for a bigger crowd and a certain type of crowd but you got to give Moe a chance as they are good...The list isn't final yet, I hope that DTB is on there too...


Angelemerald - 1/30/2008 at 12:11 PM

Hi guys. Well, as you have been guessing, I won't be making the trek to Wanee. It isn't because I don't like RatDog or moe, just that with all that's coming up, it isn't something I want to fit in. Some of it is because I am going to Florida this weekend to hang with my family - hopefully, now that my boiler is broken, I may have to stay to have it fixed if they can't do it right away - and because there is just so much coming up closer to home for me. (Now broken boilers, that is a problem worth getting a little anxious about LOL.)

I saw RatDog this summer opening for the ABB about 3-4 times and I must say I enjoyed every single one of the shows. Some of them were with 20,000 other fans. And I will say without a doubt that the vast majority of the people I grooved with from the RD crowd were great. Of course that is here in the NY metro area, but it does give a decent picture of the crowd the band brings.

Last year at Wanee I was a little concerned with some of the behavior of the young people. THey sort of rushed the stage to see the ABB and they were a little aggressive about it which made it uncomfortable so if that happens know it isn't soley the RD fans. :-) LOL... Lets face it there aren't too many shows in that part of the country so I guess that was part of it.

I also want to say I enjoyed moe the few times I heard them. While they aren't a hard rocking band like ABB or Mule, they are very very enjoyable to listen to and I also think they add to the Wanee bill. So if you can swing Wanee go because I know you will have a great time.

Where DTB is on the line up is an interesting question. Hopefully they will be added. So far DTB has missed one night of Wanee due to his work with Clapton. He went out of his way to almost be two places at one time. I am sure if his band CAN be there, they will be there.


warjag - 1/30/2008 at 12:50 PM

I have been scoping this out for weeks. The DTB will most likely not be able to come to Wanee. Now Derek could fly in do a 2 day set with the ABB then fly back to his gig with Santana. Not a enough time to bring all their equipment to Florida from Canada(I beleive)

Anyway Moe and Ratdog! This is going to be by far the largest Wanee. See you there.


Krishna - 1/30/2008 at 02:30 PM

Woo~Hoo!..FINALLY something official from the Wanee camp!
I definitely think this will be the biggest most packed Wanee Festival yet.
Do I like the idea of more people?.....No,I've enjoy all of the Wanee Festivals of the past because of the intimacy level of the smaller crowd.
Do I like the line-up,so far? Sure,lotsa great music to be heard on the line up,so far......really missing out & totally bummed about not seeing the dTb listed.
I feel it's another great opportunity for Derek to be performing this year w/ Santana...but again,another Wanee Festival is touched by Derek performing w/ a big guitar legend for a tour.
To be honest,I would rather they schedule Wanee around when Derek was going to be around for the full weekend!
I feel like since they are so late on announcing that they will fill the slots that are opened with lots of different styles of bands instead of sticking to the past idea of keeping it closer to the ABB "FamABBily"......hopefully it will be a good stretch & not a bad one.
We'll still be there enjoying the Festival & boogie-in our @sses off all weekend long!!


Everyone must be aware this year though..........
security & undercover is gonna be fierce!!(So watch out & be VERY cool!!)
the checkpoints at the entrance & throughout the park will be strong,so please just be aware,my Sisters & Brothers.


Sang - 1/30/2008 at 02:58 PM

Sounds like a lot of good music and fun to me...... outdoors listening to great music with some great friends - some I haven't met yet.......


I do wish DTB was there though...... and LCNMB......


BigDaveOnBass - 1/30/2008 at 02:59 PM

No Saturday night dTb midnight jam???

Well, I guess that means we'll have to do one at River Road Compound.


susea - 1/30/2008 at 03:20 PM

There are more bands to follow so lets not give up hope on DTB or Soul Stew yet!!! Fingers crossed!!


MotherTeresa - 1/30/2008 at 03:22 PM

cdrase - 1/30/2008 at 03:45 PM

Ok im stoked to see ratdog there AND moe. but on the other had are small intement festival is gona be really big this year. last year the crowed kinda sucked with all the younger people there. dont get me wrong im only 25 myself but id rather hang out with all of you people then my generation! the samll setting kinda made Wanee what it is and im scared theres gona be alot of young people running around doped up and shoveing there way to the front and playing that god damn tecno **** all hours of the night RIGHT next to my damn tent again! sorry for the ramble but had to get that out. i think Ratdog is a sweet add but on the other hand its not.


drh01 - 1/30/2008 at 04:46 PM

OK - I have a question. Now that some big draw names have been announced, any idea when the campground will start filling up? I drove down from Raleigh last year with my 3 sons and got in Thursday night around 5:00 PM. It was already pretty packed (we just piched a tent in the primitive section over by the lake). I'm thinking about getting down there a day earlier this year and staying a day later (getting up Sunday morning to drive back to Raleigh was a bit rough). If I get in Wednesday around 5:00, any idea how packed it will be? This will only be my 2nd Wanee, and I'm still trying to work out all the details. The only thing I know for sure is after last year, I don't think I'll be missing any future Wanee's!

Ck the Wanee website but I think they do not allow entry before noon Thurs.

Ticket prices are set per TM. $135 and $350 VIP.


cdrase - 1/30/2008 at 05:14 PM

Pre-sale is tonight at 5? i really wish i could go to the wanee website but for some reason it no longer works for my computer and has been like this for 2 weeks! Please keep me updated on here Please


drh01 - 1/30/2008 at 05:18 PM

I called the park. You can pay for additional nights. I'm just wondering if that many people would pay for Wednesday night in order to get setup earlier.

much less packed out on Wed, best time to show up. You just pay the additional night of camping. Primitive camping is cheap $20-25 a night. Same goes for the additional night Sunday

MY plans for WANNEE are to fly into Birminhammy on wed night or Thursday morn..pick up a mini van and a seed or two and scoot on down to WANNEE. We can sing something like 99 Bottles of Beer On The Wall for like 7 hours ! Should be fun, maybe stop off and see the worlds largest rubber band ball or go to a whorehouse in New Orleans !

The price is up from last year but what isn't?? Terri had the VIP last year and if I remember correctly, she siad it was only worth it for the bathrooms...especially if they have that darn plumbing problem again!!

Jon, you gonna pick up Brent?? I think that would help him out!??

Do we know that the presales will be any cheaper than regular onsale tix? I know at the gate is more, but pls tell me why I should be in a hurry to park even more $ w/ TM.


jpfudd5 - 1/30/2008 at 07:02 PM

I sure want to know the entire lineup! I'm getting my tix at exactly 4 CST but I'm really anxious to know who's coming!


MotherTeresa - 1/30/2008 at 07:05 PM

I am wondering if there will be a "special" presale for us like I think I remember last year thru Music Today.

I just wanna buy ASAP now that Ratdog and moe are on the bill. It will be much more crowded than the 10k we had last year. Don't know if they will limit the number of tickets they will sell and I am not sure what the maximum number they have ever had out at the park for an event.

Helen, I hope Tuesday is early enough this year. People the secret is OUT! Magfest last year was packed.


Sang - 1/30/2008 at 07:15 PM

Is there a password for this presale?


MotherTeresa - 1/30/2008 at 07:22 PM

good question... it says general on sale date is monday and presale starts today @5

maybe the Wanee site will go live in a little while


thedeadhead - 1/30/2008 at 07:25 PM

This is my first time going to Wanee. Ill be going with my dad. Any advise on parking? We are going to stay near white springs.


rottinpeach - 1/30/2008 at 07:33 PM

I do not believe there is a rush to get your tickets. In case your wondering. I do not think Wanee sells out because of the space they have. Everything is first come first serve. Except the RV sections, golf cart rentals, etc. But I will be getting mine soon. We are already feeling the vibe.


MotherTeresa - 1/30/2008 at 07:33 PM

there is a special parking lot for people who don't camp and it is right near the entrance to the park.

I have discovered that there is a password for the presale but still don't know who is sponsoring this presale. I did not get a POG about it.

susea - 1/30/2008 at 08:04 PM

I had signed up with Fantasma, that's how I got the presale info. There's a password.


BigDaveOnBass - 1/30/2008 at 08:15 PM

So it's a Fantasma pre-sale of a TM pre-sale? Do you have to be registered to participate?


MotherTeresa - 1/30/2008 at 08:33 PM

not sure BD cause I have been registered at Fantasma for 3 years now but did not get this email today and I checked at their website today and they had my email addy.


Benjamin - 1/30/2008 at 08:34 PM

Great!!!

I'll miss any presale at 5PM, but I'm not worried about being able to get a pair of tix on Monday.

Feeling more and more REAL everyday!


LikeToSmoke - 1/30/2008 at 08:36 PM

Hi all

GREAT news with the partial lineup

I got a Fantasma email that announced tickets are on sale at 5 PM today. I didnt see any code needed.

PARTY!!!


LikeToSmoke - 1/30/2008 at 08:45 PM

The VIP tickets are definitely NOT worth it. The viewing is way off to the side and the food they give you is horrible. The best thing about it is the $1 beers. Youíll have to drink 215 beers to break even!!!


jtdav - 1/30/2008 at 08:48 PM

You can fax or mail Fantasma direct for your tickets. I mailed them a MO for mine last Friday (1/25). Just go to the fax form on the Wanee ticket page.


susea - 1/30/2008 at 08:51 PM

There's password for sure. On the email I got where it says click to purchase, it brings you right to the TM site. I'm sure Lana is trying to get it all together for the POG. My email says that it goes till 4PM on Monday.

I'd more than willing to help out my friends here who want the info. I won't just go ahead and post it to the world though!


LikeToSmoke - 1/30/2008 at 08:54 PM

I didnt see the password (email at work)

But a presale for a general admission show is kind of meaningless, don't you think?

I've been extremely excited about moe. and Ratdog for several days now, and I'm glad I can finally share my joy with all you good people

Anybody who saw the ABB/Ratdog tour last August knows it's ON now! moe. has a great new album that sounds more Allman-ish than any of their previous work, so give them a chance at Wanee if you haven't been a fan before.

This will be good!

They better step up the food this year.


susea - 1/30/2008 at 11:48 PM

Yes, it's $350! Did they have showers in those restrooms??

Let me save Terri the keystrokes. No, no showers in what she described as a trailer w/ 4 stalls. Let me apologize now for my marginal cleanliness as I get by on the Sunshower/river method! She did indicate that if shepherd's pie suits your palate, VIP is for you!


rottinpeach - 1/31/2008 at 12:36 AM

Because the water pump went out last year. I bought a Shower/Toilet tent.
Its about a 4x4. I haven't used it yet. Something is better than nothing. Paid about
a hundred bucks for it. Besure to leave a quarter in the pocket if I am not around.
50 cents for a shower. Bring your own water.


I wouldn't waste the money on a VIP ticket. Now if the seats were dead center for 10 rows, maybe. But they were off the right looking at the stage. They did not impress me that much.
We had just as good of time and the food was probably as good in the field concessions. Plus I will be sitting in my camping chair. Not sure how the chairs were in VIP. Now if it rains, the vip will keep you dry.


banesh - 1/31/2008 at 01:01 AM

Just so you know the "trailer" shower has been replaced with a nice building. Still not going to be enough for the crowd this year I'm affraid. I'm not interested in the VIP thing but we are going to try and find out who is catering it this year and will post what we know here.

Also, wanted to send a big YAHOO to Erin, Tony, Celia, , Uncle Brendon, Grandmaw Pat, Grandpaw Syd, and Great Grandmaw Margaret! Erin just found out today that it's going to be a boy and his name is Anthony IV - due in July


TerriB - 1/31/2008 at 01:04 AM

The VIP was well worth the nice potties and the $1 beers and being out of the sun when you wanted to be.

The food pretty much sucked. Shepard's Pie on a 90 degree day is not my idea of good eatin'! That caterer should be shot.

Now where did you say your campsite would be!! Backup plan "A" I too agree that the consession venders were good. I had some grilled chicken with greek salad, rice. Loved it but SHEPARDS PIE??? Talk about lead belly on a 90 degree day!! Ick...LOL! Shoot em!! LOL!

Helen, send a Yahooo to Erin and the gang!!!!


MotherTeresa - 1/31/2008 at 02:12 AM

I think the crowd will be bigger this year due to the already announced lineup and that means the facilities will be stressed out even more. Yeah they do have room for lots of folks but I do not like port o potties and broken down water mains either. I guess they will bring in more port o potties for a bigger crowd. $350 is a lot to pay for a nicer potty but could be well worth it if something happens again.

I wonder if the presale tickets will be limited to a certain number and then the price will go up. Get em while you can.


TerriB - 1/31/2008 at 02:17 AM

I sent an e-mail to Fantasma. I asked if the food will be better this year since the price went up 50. I 'll let you know if/when I hear back from them.


BigDaveOnBass - 1/31/2008 at 02:18 AM

I'm going to try to rig up some kind of shower facility at RRC this year. I don't mind port-o-lets....early in the day after they've been serviced. They are NASTY late at night.

Anyway Moe and Ratdog! This is going to be by far the largest Wanee. See you there.

I'm thinking what if Susan is there with Derek's band backing her like she did this summer for a spell while Derek was with the Brothers...that would work then Derek can sit right in and all will be P E R F E C T!!!!!!!!!!!!

Luke are you talking about ordering them directly from the Park or from Fantasma?

Does that mean the Spirit of Suwanee Music Park OR does it mean Fantasma Productions? Wanee is just the name of the festival.


banesh - 1/31/2008 at 04:07 PM

I purchased mine last year through Fantasma Productions - Hopefully they will have the info listed soon no their website. The tickets ended up being less then ticketmaster but wondering if they will even offer a sale through them. It could be Fantasma Productions is asking the Spirit of Suwanee Park to sell them for them. Luke, Does the lady you spoke with (Nancy) work at the park?

Glad to see WarfRat will be joining us this year! Sang too How bout you EasyMichael????

That might be a good idea - more reasonable add-on amounts versus TM....unless you're in a big hurry to get your tickets, the extra money might be worth the piece of mind...


rottinpeach - 1/31/2008 at 05:53 PM

If ticketmaster is the only way to get them, I will buy them at the gate at a higher price when we get there. I would rather the park get the extra money than Ticketmaster. Dern Crooks.

Hi, Helen. Thanks for asking. I'm planning on it.


bluedad - 1/31/2008 at 11:38 PM

Sang and Wharfrat.......

Damn Hayseeds.....

Need to get busy with a makeshift Yogi's stand.....


Dannyspell - 1/31/2008 at 11:48 PM

The past 3 years I just called the park gave them my credit card number and they mailed them to me. Also this way if you have any questions you can take care of that. Sorta like 1 stop shopping.

LOL - with Wharfy and Sang at the fest you will probably make enough to retire, Bluedad!


warjag - 2/1/2008 at 12:29 AM

OK brothers and sisters I have been on the road all week. Whats up? Still no schedule?
Oh well it will get there soon. Then we will make about half the bands and say we had the best times of our lives!

AGAIN!

Now there's an idea...well first off we'll need a pole... then some WANEE women... anything else you can think of???

We don't want any Wookie's though, right?? LOL!

Also I'm from Florida and prefer to give my buisness to local folks instead of corporate Ticketmaster. Kinda funny that way.

Looks like a visit to Spirit of Suwannee Music Park on Tuesday April 8th is in order this year to help get camp set up.................


heineken515 - 2/1/2008 at 04:27 PM

Based on what we know so far:

Allman Brothers Band
Bob Weir & Ratdog
Gov't Mule
Oteil & the Peacemakers
Moe

I hope that doesn't mean Mule and Ratdog will be on at the same time forcing a choice to be made....time will tell.


musichick3 - 2/1/2008 at 04:53 PM

What is the estimated cost of tix (based on last couple of years)?


bluSky00 - 2/1/2008 at 04:53 PM

Mule and Ratdog would both play on the Peach stage wouldnt they? Shouldnt be a conflict there.

I would think they would be on the same stage. But who will go on before who. Ratdog first and then Mule or the other way around. I would think Warren would go on first, to give a little break before the brothers hit the stage. Doesnt really matter to me..........

Yea not sure on that. I would think Ratdog would go first then mule. But you are right on giving Warren a break. You must also remember, he IS the hardest working man in all of Jam. He is a machine. But yea, who cares! Gonna be ANOTHER amazing weekend. Anxious to see the lineup fill out. Wanee Wanee Wanee!!

The man can handle it. I saw The Mule, Phil Lesh and The ABB he played all three bands and didnt miss a lick............He made it look like a walk in the park......LOL



I dont know what the price will be at the gate, but remember, if its just a tad more at the gate. I would rather the park get the extra money than those crooks a ticketmaster.

The Mule's MySpace site released this bulletin earlier. *sigh* What's up with that??


BigSixPeachHead - 2/1/2008 at 08:17 PM

Prolly gots to do with Ratdog and moe. being there that most folks are excited about.

Lynn and I were talking about who'd be closing the nights...and dang it, it better be the ABB arrrrrrrgggg....(although I'm 99% sure they will be) but we discussed wonder who will play before them.

Give in the past it's been the Mule but with these other 2 high profile bands now added into the mix, it had to make ya wonder...it did us anyway. And it only made sense that something, rather someone had to give and unfortunately thats what seems to be happening.....damn shame if you ask me


Angelemerald - 2/1/2008 at 08:32 PM

AHHHH, it's been called to my attention. LOL, that I would only be spending about 1000 on a Wanee thing. i would have had to do it VIP due to the rush of young rude people up to the stage last year. I got a little upset by that. Anyway, I would have spent about 1000. Now I'm sure I'll spend it on other things. LIKE BEACONING. LOL.


What's up with what????

That they told their fans that they are only gonna do one night?

GREAT AND THANKS TO HARDHEAD AND THE MULE FAMILY FOR LETTING THEIR FANS NOW WELL IN ADVACNE of spending any money on Wanee this year.

I saved about 1500 dollars by not going on this trip.

The moment many of you have been waiting for has finally arrived! The initial lineup for the 2008 Wanee Fest has been announced, and there is a pre-sale through Fantasma Productions from January 30th to February 4th, so get your tickets now. The password for the pre-sale is "spirit." Click here for tickets!

More bands to come, but check out this awe-inspiring collection of musical talent...

Wanee Festival 2008
Featuring The Allman Brothers Band, Gov't Mule, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi Soul Stew Revival, Bob Weir & Ratdog, Oteil & the Peacemakers and many more!
April 11 & 12, 2008
Spirit of Suwannee Music Park - Live Oak, FL
2-day tickets include camping on the grounds!
On Sale Monday February 4 at 5pm through Ticketmaster!
Buy tickets here: www.ticketmaster.com/waneefestival
Festival website: www.waneefestival.com

Those of you who saw the Ratdog/ABB tour last August know how magical that combination can be, and veteran jamband moe. has been on a roll lately. More details about the lineup are on the way soon.

Of course, the official music is only half the fun at Wanee, with campground jams from dusk till dawn that feature music that is just as passionate as what is heard on the main stages. Not to mention the many hidden treasures and fun activities one can find at Spirit of Suwannee Music Park, from canoeing the Suwannee River to experiencing the Craft Village.

Make sure to stop by the Hittin' the Note booth to renew your subscription, pick up the latest in Allman Brothers gear, or pre-order the live recordings of both Allman Brothers shows. This festival is one of the highlights of our year at HTN, and we look forward to seeing you way down upon the Suwannee River!

There is no better way to get warmed up for this year's Wanee Fest than by reliving last year's fest by watching the wonderful Wanee DVD produced by the folks at JamCam. We continue to get nothing but praise for this wonderful video, which contains some of the hottest live music you'll ever hear, as well as perfectly capturing the unique vibe of Wanee Fest.

Just pulled the trigger and purchased 3 tickets from Mule ticketing (Me, my son and the Nanny). I was unable to go last year as the wife was too weak to make the trip.This year I am heading down on Wednesday and doing a little kayaking and diving in the nearby springs. Let the countdown begin!

I do remember that Musictoday did the presale the last couple of years cause they wait til 2 weeks before the event to send out the tickets so maybe I will get mine from Ticketmaster earlier since I paid all those extra dollars in fees.

I didn't know you could get them from the SOSMP or directly from Fantasma.

I really can't wait to see the whole lineup and schedule. I wish they would announce something official soon.

They were the problem last year. All these young kids just rushing the front of the space to the stage. It really upset me last year.

BTW Sue, I would have to pay 40 for the dog sitter each night and about 70 each way to and from Newark. It's close to a 1500 dollar trip when you add up all the p's and Q's for me.


susea - 2/2/2008 at 02:22 AM

Well, I understand. If you can't do it, you can't do it...

All this talk about the ticket prices...I bought mine the other day for a total of $149.75 thru TM.

Music Today is $155. 45

Wanee site is $160.00

Just got my tickets. Quick question. Last year I camped primative. This year we got a reserved site. Are these sites better and is it a longer or shorter walk to the stage area?


danik56 - 2/2/2008 at 10:37 AM

Guys, I want to buy tickets and was wondering where is the best place to buy online? Are these E-Tickets or they send them out in the mail ?

I paid less than that via the Wanee site presale link....you have to watch the default shipping method.

Wanee this year - for the first three years my daughter and I have camped out at the front of the stages all day....first year was doable, second year was bearable, last year sucked like Angela already wrote.

This year - we've already decided it's not worth the effort to have to fight off all the nuts squezzing in front of you...maybe we'll just spend more time with the friends from here and listen to the music from a longer distance....


susea - 2/2/2008 at 12:24 PM

Brock did bring to my attention that if you choose a different shipping you can get it cheaper. $148.95 if you use first class mail. You need to have patience though as they will arrive about 10 days before show time. With ticketmaster I paid $153.80 but they'll be printed next week and I'll get them the week after that. It doesn't concern me about spending 4 dollars more. If you go through the Spirit of Suwanee website there's a fax order form and with all charges, that's $160 but I think some people like the xtra money to go to them.

Also note...

∑ All Ticket prices include three nights of primitive camping starting April 10
∑ children 5 and under will be admitted without a ticket if accompanied by an adult.
∑ Two Day Ticket Pricing: Buy your tickets early and Save !
∑ Feb. 8 Ė Feb. 22 $135.00
∑ Feb. 23 Ė March 20 $150.00
∑ March 21 Ė April 12 $165.00

Bad, Bad, News Folks! Wanee is right in the middle of Master's week here in Augusta. Working for a rental car company means that this is our busyiest time of the year. We are acutally forbidden to go on vacation during this week, so I guess that it means NO Wanee for me!

I initially thought that it was going to happen a little later this year! CRAP!

Bring some of those sheep to work a few days prior to Wanee. The Boss will be sure to send you home...

Drew, you just got to be there...


danik56 - 2/4/2008 at 01:29 PM

It was stated above that the cost of a ticket via TM is $153.80. Is this for standard US mail delivery ? It appears that thru Mule ticketing you can get UPS 2 day for $155, so maybe it is a better deal ??


MotherTeresa - 2/4/2008 at 01:47 PM

$155 is not bad for UPS if that is what you need. I went with the $153.80 for US mail and hopefully I will not have to wait so long for the ticket to arrive like in past years.


Sang - 2/4/2008 at 01:54 PM

Mule ticketing is UPS, but they wait until later to mail them - it's 2 days from when they release them, not 2 days from your order.


danik56 - 2/4/2008 at 02:07 PM

Isn't US mail less secure than UPS ? what happens if it gets lost in the mail ? in my case I will leave home a week before the event, so if they send it out late I might miss it. Guess it all depends how late they're going to mail the tickets.


MotherTeresa - 2/4/2008 at 02:40 PM

if you don't get your ticket before you leave, you should call and tell them you will need to pick up your ticket at "Will Call" at the Festival

danik56 - 2/4/2008 at 03:11 PM

So there is no risk using regular mail for shipping the tickets ?

Mule ticketing no longer sell the Wanee tickets. Is TM the least expensive option ?


MotherTeresa - 2/4/2008 at 03:42 PM

try this and it depends on where you live as to the delivery option you need

Does this mean that rental cars will be hard to come by and should be reserved in advance?


MotherTeresa - 2/4/2008 at 04:28 PM

no you should be fine in Jax or Valdosta or Atlanta or Tallahassee.
he is talking about the Masters golf tournament in Augusta, GA and he has to work cause he works at a car agency.

No, Augusta and Live Oak are faaaaar from each other. Drew works for a rental car company, so that's crimping his style


bluSky00 - 2/4/2008 at 04:34 PM

What do you think tickets will be at the gate?


danik56 - 2/4/2008 at 04:38 PM

Thanks Dave. Looking forward to meeting all the fine folks from this forum.
We'll spend the weekend of April 4 in NYC, and infact while I was on the TM site getting my Wanee tickets, I dound that on April 5 there is a Jefferson Starship concert at the BB King Blues club on 42nd street. It is titled "The great 68' Airplane-Dead Show".
Does anyone know if its worth seeing ?

Saw 'em last year at Walmart....even saw their Wookie bus too.


MotherTeresa - 2/5/2008 at 09:29 PM

Well TerriB, you'll have to drive a little further down the road to buy your beer and use the potty at the Live Oak Publix since Benjamin said there are Wookies at the Walmart. The Publix attracts the higher class Wookies.

Is that the Cracker Barrel in Valdookie, GA or Lake City, FL??

Oteil hopefully if not him Dave Schools or George Porter Jr. I have not looked at those guys schedules yet. Maybe Dave Schools will bring Jimmy Herring with him. that would be killer.

for those of us going primative this year, and are getting there early (i'll be there Weds....) there is an additional $25 charge per day if you arrive before thursday and stay after sunday.

and just fyi, for upgraded camp sites (electric and water) it is an additonal $109 for the weekend and $39 for each additional day before or after thursday - sunday.


Angelemerald - 2/7/2008 at 10:24 PM

I have one upgrarded camp site for sale. 100 gets one site. IM me. Ang


BigDaveOnBass - 2/7/2008 at 10:30 PM

Angela's site is next to (or actually, part of) The River Road Compound. Get it while the gettin' is good.


Angelemerald - 2/7/2008 at 10:33 PM

Well, Krishna is going to get the one right next to you guys and she and I (my friends actually from last year Deb) are going to share it. I'm still waiting to hear from her but assume since I am donating it to the cause of the jam, she will be alright with that. The other one is next to that. Ang

And what a music lovin Sister she is to donate her spot to help the cause of the River Road Compound Peach Family Jams!!!
Everyone give it up to Ang........& remember to kick down any kynd goodies her way when you see her at Wanee!


danik56 - 2/8/2008 at 08:34 AM

Any chance Honeytribe will be added to the line-up ?


cdrase - 2/8/2008 at 01:59 PM

Is ratdog playing both days at Wanee? there web page has them down for both and people over on there boards are sayin 2 days? Just wondering if anyone had heard anything


Krishna - 2/8/2008 at 02:36 PM

I'm almost positive that Ratdog will only pay one day.
The Mule will perform the other night in the same slot,since they're doing only one night.
....But that's just my guessing


MotherTeresa - 2/8/2008 at 02:40 PM

I thought I read somewhere that Mule was only playing on Friday night.


Krishna - 2/8/2008 at 02:45 PM

Yep,MT..you heard right!(mule.net sent that out in an e-mail)
And I think that I remember seeing that Andy Hess wasn't going to be at Wanee either because he is touring w/ someone else right now.

You'd think with the "family" vibe of this festival, Honeytribe would be a given. Maybe they'll be a last minute addition to the roster. I know Pedro wants to come and be part of the RRC jams again. Anything is possible.

So since Dave and John will be seeing Devon in Columbia soon, ask them about being at Wanee. Devon told me he'd see us at Wanee but that was a few months ago.


rottinpeach - 2/8/2008 at 06:15 PM

Hey Helen,

We have decided to leave early Wed morning now instead of Thursday morning. We should arrive late afternoon Wed. Coming from NC. Keep us on your list of campers.

Thanks.


banesh - 2/8/2008 at 06:17 PM

Yahoo!!! Glad to hear ya'll are coming early. We'll have a site reserved for you


DKBlues - 2/8/2008 at 07:07 PM

Just a few quick questions - How crowded will it be at noon on thursday? Will there be plenty of sites left or will it be slim pickens? Are people right on top of each other or does each campsite have a little bit of room?


heineken515 - 2/8/2008 at 07:13 PM

Most of the "campsite" talk you see above is the reserved sites. There are also large primitive areas where there aren't technically "sites", you just squat and stake out your own area. The primitive is what is included in your ticket, the reserved sites are extra.

The reserved sites are probably already reserved, the primitive sites will be wide open on Thursday afternoon.

Hey...since I always bring a 'Magic Box' of tunes, how about requests? That way I can burn 'em, label 'em, give 'em.

You can always expect the ABB London 1991 show (un-official CD of Helen's Hilton). Just go to the vines site and scroll back to see what I've got, or just PM me with a request. Of course you don't have to do any of that; I'll just place a shoebox on the table with many shows---everything from Gordon Lightfoot to ABB to Muddy Waters to Amy Winehouse. If the show is in my collection, it's yours! Just give me a heads-up so I can start burning. I love to share with friends, new and old.

So I wanted to go over what we know so far...

Ratdog's site says Friday and Saturday

moe. has a gig on Friday in Birmingham, so they are Sat.

ABB says both nights

Mule's site says Friday

Haven't heard anything from Levon Helm that I know of

So do we have Mule/Ratdog/Levon/ABB Friday? Then moe./Ratdog/Levon/ABB Sat? What do you guys think?


rottinpeach - 2/9/2008 at 02:47 AM

Close to 75 folks on the roll call so far. This is going to be good.


Pastdreams - 2/9/2008 at 11:34 AM

Woke up this rainy Saturday and one word popped into my foggy brain - WANEEEEEEEE. I'm coming.
Need advice as to where to fly into, when, who is around to pick up me and pal. Helen, can't wait to check in!!!!!!
Pat, I'd be honored to take you up on the sleeping bag/tent offer (what else should I bring, except a great big smile and my dancing shoes?)
You still have that shower and **** err?
Rainy?

All this Beacon mess is making me VERY happy I chose to come to Wanee


Pastdreams - 2/9/2008 at 05:09 PM

Thanks Helen. I lost my cellphone at security at LaGuardia two years ago. Couldn't hook up with anybody 'cept by chance two years back. That was particularly a problem since I kept lending the key to my cabin to all who wanted a hot shower and then couldn't get it back for hours!
Now I'm wondering just WHY was I locking the door?

New York mentality.

WharfRat - tell me, what Beacon mess? I don't come around here that much anymore.

banesh - 2/9/2008 at 07:45 PM

Hey everyone! Been working on the plan of attack for the Hilton campsite this morning and already, we have 64 people (both guestbook and local Tallahassee friends). Looks like there will be 39 tents/campers. I suspect we'll have more then that of course - grows every year.... 17 folks that aren't included are day guests cuz they have hotel rooms and use our site as a base camp. If anyone is up to editing the Spirit of the Suwanee map BDOB posted, Helen's Hilton needs to be moved just on the other side of that little red box (horse stables). Getting real excited about the lineup and seeing everyone again this year! Need to check in with Bluedad about the name tags and holders. If you still have your badge holder and rope from last year, bring it and we'll just put your new name tag in it. Back to work on the list! Everyone have a great day/weekend Absolutely beautify weekend here in North Florida....

-------------------------
danik56.... We just had name tags made for everyone with their their screen and/or real names on them. You'll be able to get one at the River Road Compound or the Hilton if you want one. Just a way to meet those we haven't met yet We had "If found, return to Helen's Hilton" on the back of them and believe it or not, the only person that refused to wear it never did make it back one night - he was reeeaaaaal lost. Some other campsite adopted him until he found his way back the next morning - true story

Badges? We don't need no stinking badges!

Sorry, I had to do that, its an often quoted line from a movie in case you didn't know.


Badges? We ain't got no badges! We don't need no badges. I don't have to show you any stinkin' badges!

(Note: The bandit never actually said, as in Brooks' film: "Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges!")


The kind people from Helen's Hilton campsite provide nametag laminates for the people from this site so we can learn the face that goes with the screen name


freebrd1975 - 2/9/2008 at 10:56 PM

got my ticket today.


Pastdreams - 2/9/2008 at 11:05 PM

This is a stupid question......be forewarned.....
Just for "safety sake", I'm not going to buy my Wanee tickets til I get my plane tickets and rent-a-buggy so that I know I can afford all this.
Here is the stupid question....
They never run out of primitive camping tickets, do they? I mean, I could probably buy them on Thursday afternoon when I arrive, yes or no?


banesh - 2/9/2008 at 11:18 PM

I was told they cap it off at 20,000 for that venue. Never have seen it sell out yet and I'm sure a lot of folks will wait til they arrive to get their tickets. You should have no problem Elizabeth - besides, there will probably be others that have to cancel and get rid of their tickets too. You could just snag one of those


bluedad - 2/10/2008 at 12:33 AM

Mr. Bill Thames would be my choice . I'm sure we can find someone...


bluedad - 2/10/2008 at 01:42 AM

I hope it can be a half dozen pictures taken by one camera and then we can send jpeg's through the net....

If not, everyone will want to break pose and get their own picture....

Bill Thames....Hope he comes, however he needs to be in the pic with us.....


banesh - 2/10/2008 at 02:16 AM

A timer would just have to be set with the camera on a tripod. Hoping Bill & Patty will be there too... We'll figure out who can take the pix and then just decide when and where. Seems like before the shows start during the day which would be between 11-12. I'm thinking the Hilton area is more open with less trees to get a good shot. Or, in front of a Wanee banner at the big stage or even at the HTN booth. Just some ideas... We never got a group shot last year but did the two years before - we just forgot!


bluedad - 2/10/2008 at 02:26 AM

Hey Helen,

I agree with that the Hilton area is perfect....

I got my answer on the "badges" question, so now here's my next ignorant question: what is "Helen's Hilton campsite" ? I'm going to arrive Thursday afternoon, and check in to a local hotel (still need to find a room) as my bad back wouldn't allow sleeping on the ground anymore.
Still I'd like to come and say hello to all you nice people from this great forum, so I need some basic training as to where everything is in the suwanee park.


danik56 - 2/10/2008 at 07:09 AM

I ordered my tickets online from TM on 02/04. still havn't received them.
When I view the order on the TM website, it says "Tickets are in the process of being printed". Some people reported to have received their tickets already. should I call TM to check on the status of my order, or give them a few more days ?

I couldn't miss out on seeing all you guys, specially since Beacon pickings are slim and these 2 may be the only other shows I see. Oh yeah I have one ticket for the Beacon so far. Like I said I am trying to confuse Jerry Springer. Rottin peach I hope to finally meet you. Everyone else, Can't wait to see you all and groove. This year I will only be glued to the stage on Friday. Other wise I picked up the vip so I can spare myself being pushed and shoved by these younguns. I am gonna be old soon. BTW, Mike are you going again this year? I hope to see your smiling face. And everyones too. I am so excited that I couldn't kwwp it to myself any longer.

Hey Dannyspell... I got the 2nd PM but still, nothing in it! I'm guessing by your above statement, I'll give you the book at Wanee I'll PM you my cell so you can find me at the fest...


Pastdreams - 2/10/2008 at 10:08 PM

Farmer Maggie bringin' them hot stuff brownies? Ummm Ummmmm good.
That's where they came from right? Surprised me big time. Got a ride from new friend in golf cart and was offered a snack. Next thing I knew, I didn't know where I was and why I had wanted to get there.......so she drove me back.

Hoping not to need any Goodie powders but I'm sure the administrator of the HYW site will be fully supplied!!!!!!! Hey, what a great idea for a group picture.....whooosh, gulp, eyes pop out "Everybody say WANEEEEEEEEEEEEE" (mixed in with much coughing and sputtering).

Yeah I decided to go for the people. I really think this band has - overall - a great bunch of people as fans. It's refreshing. I must also admit, I was in Florida when I made the decision. Now that it's like 17 degrees and windy like a Mo Fo in B'klyn right now, I am so glad I have some sweet warmth to look forward to. And that isn't just about the temperature. :-)


MotherTeresa - 2/11/2008 at 02:36 PM

It's supposed to be 71 degrees and sunny here in North Florida today. Chamber of Commerce weather we have been having these last few days. I passed by the SOSMP yesteday on my way home from Jax and it was all I could do to not take exit 283 and head over there. I can't wait for Springfest and Wanee. My Wanee ticket was waiting for me when I got home yesterday.

Can't wait to see everyone again.

Teresa


Krishna - 2/11/2008 at 02:49 PM

I would always be at the SOS if I lived in the area!!
Scott would have to organize search & rescue missions to find me hiding SOMEWHERE within the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park!!
But I don't know if any of the rescuers would leave either!!
I can't wait to give all of my Sweet Sisters & Brothers *HUGS* at Wanee!!


rottinpeach - 2/11/2008 at 03:11 PM

I picked up the ABB at NO Jazz Fest last week. Been listening to Into the Mystic over and over. I had that visual of sitting in the field while the Brothers were playing that and The Weight. Who originally wrote Into the Mystic? That is one killer song. I love the part in The Weight towards the end of the song where Derek kicks it into another gear. Awesome stuff.

This morning while laying in bed, I am doing nothing but thinking about how I am gonna set up camp. What a crazy thing to wake up thinking. I didn't camp in Helen's Hilton last year because I couldn't find the spot. Are there a lot of trees in this area. Also, I see we have a boat load of folks coming, how will parking be for us all? Anybody have any pics they can post of the area. Susie and I are getting pumped up for this. We had a blast in Atlanta NYE and are looking forward to meeting old and new friends from this site. How far is Helen's Hilton from where the campfire jams were played? We have decided now, to leave Tuesday night or Wednesday AM instead of Thursday am. We should be getting there around 1-2'ish coming from NC. Big Dave, you still have that map, or have I overlooked it.................?????

Pumped and ready to Roll......................

MotherTeresa - 2/11/2008 at 03:22 PM

Helen's Hilton is over by the horse stables RP which is just down the road from the main stage and not far from where all the River Road music will take place. I am glad you are going early cause Helen will need help getting it together. I hope I can get over there and set up my tent early too. Should be bigger attendance this year. Last year was 10K I heard.


BigDaveOnBass - 2/11/2008 at 03:29 PM

This is the map from last year. The location of River Road Compound will be pretty much in the same spot.


kdick - 2/11/2008 at 03:39 PM

Well, some good news and bad news. First the bad - won't be able to get to Wanee this year. Just have too much going on and we are Beacon bound in May. That said, the good news is I have a room booked at the Best Western Live Oak from the 10th through the 13th and I know that rooms are tough to come by in the area so before I cancel the reservation I thought I would offer up here to someone who is not going to camp but would like a spot close by. I am sure I could have the hotel change the contact and CC info. PM me if you are interested. Cheers to a great Wanee for all!!


rottinpeach - 2/11/2008 at 04:09 PM

Thanks for the map BD. I see now why I didn't find HH last year. We should had gone down River Road and to the left on Horse Field Rd. We took the Rees Lake road to the left as we entered and looked for Helens Hitlton on the right. Helen, we would love to help you after we arrive and set up camp.

You guys just kicked me into another flashback of Fryday night at Wanee 07.....Twirlin on the hill,with my eyes shut, as "Into the Mystic" rang out beautifully into the moonlit sky!

Helen's Hilton is actually on the other side of the barn (that little red box to the left on the map). Thanks for your offer to help on the setup up! We'll put ya to work for sure


rottinpeach - 2/11/2008 at 08:56 PM

I hope then bring Chuck Leavell in as a guest this year.

Good to see our friends from many previous shows coming again to Wanee......Jay and Bret


NateR - 2/11/2008 at 09:19 PM

We will be Wanee rookies this year. Looking at that map BD posted and the same map on the Spirit site it is hard to get a feel for the distances involved. How far is it between those stages. I looks like a hike. Are people generally going back and forth between the stages all day, or a least until the Mule and ABB are on? Let's hope for two nights of Mule. Bobby doesn't cut it for me in the place of a Mule set. Thanks.


MotherTeresa - 2/11/2008 at 09:46 PM

it's not that far from stage to stage and you will want to trot back and forth all day


TerriB - 2/11/2008 at 09:49 PM

One night of Mule (Friday)
One Night of Ratdog (Saturday)

The ABB will be following the animal acts. I heard the old showbiz rule was to never follow an animal act or a kid act

It's not far at all between stages. If you are in the crowd , its about a 2-5 minute walk between stages, depending on where you start out.


NateR - 2/11/2008 at 11:13 PM

Thanks for the answers on the distances between stages.
One more thing, count me bummed (only relatively) about

One night of Mule (Friday)
One Night of Ratdog (Saturday)

Bobby is a real snoozefest, especially compared to Mule. Just my opinion. Hasn't it been Mule and ABB both nights the last three years. But it won't stop me from finally checking Wanee out.


MissElf - 2/12/2008 at 12:11 AM

When looking for the Helen's Hilton area, bear left past the bath house. If you miss that and keep on the main road you will come to an open gate that goes into the pasture. This is your "gone too far" landmark. Turn left before going into the pasture. We are in that corner, between the horse barn and the fence, back against the tree line.
Wanee!

Mike Mattison: Vocals
Kofi Burbridge: Keyboards, Flute and Vocals
Todd Smallie: Bass, Vocals
Yonrico V. Scott: Drums
Duane Trucks: Drums

Yes, Krishna is correct and that was actually their very first performance as Soul Stew Revival!

The difference between the two are with DTB it's all Mike or Kofi on vocals without Susan and the horn section.


BigDaveOnBass - 2/12/2008 at 01:57 PM

SSR plays more R&B type stuff. You won't notice too many dTb tunes at a SSR show.

You'll dig it. THAT I can guarantee.

And I will second Dave's guarantee!!

BigDaveOnBass - 2/12/2008 at 02:32 PM

Yeah, I'm looking forward to it, too. I'm wondering how the crowds are going to be this year since Rat Dog and moe. are on the bill. Ought to make the campfire jams interesting.

ecosense - 2/13/2008 at 03:17 PM

I ordered tickets from ticketstoday.com (through the Wanee web site) on the 3rd of February and so far haven't received them. Am not worried. They don't always get to you until a few weeks before the event..........but I sure wouldn't mind seeing them in my mailbox!!

danik56 - 2/13/2008 at 03:52 PM

I checked my order status on the TM web site, and it says "Your tickets have been printed. Your tickets were shipped via standard USPS mail".
I'm assuming if the tickets were indeed shipped, they should arrive in matter of days and not next month. is that a fair assumption ?


banesh - 2/13/2008 at 03:59 PM

fair assumption Dani... I just ordered mine from TM last week and have already received them

danik56 - 2/13/2008 at 04:14 PM

And I had them shipped to my friend's house in Ft Myers, so I should have had them by now.


MotherTeresa - 2/13/2008 at 06:01 PM

I ordered my ticket from Ticketmaster on the first day and it was in the mail last Saturday to North Florida so it should be coming soon to Fort Myers. It is a plain white letter size envelope which does not say Ticketmaster on it anywhere and the return address is from Virginia I think.

Hey Bluedad.....any chance of more nametags and lanyards this year?? THEY WERE SO GREAT! And I've still got mine.........but it needs a new sleeve. Somehow at JFD it got all torn up (hmmmmmmmm what WAS I doing that weekend to get it that way..oh yeahhhhhh )

ANYHOW..if you know a source and I can grab a bunch of lanyards and sleeves, just say the word. I cannot print the nametags though. Can they be done again?? Pleeaasseee???

I cannot WAIT! Spring is totally in the air down here and April is coming fast!! YAY!

LMAO!!

Here's my favorite...I posted it on the GB a few weeks ago...

Margarita Jello Shots

6 ounces Lime Jello (large box)
16 ounces Water (boiling)
6 ounces Tequila
2 ounces Triple Sec
1 ounce Lime Juice
1 ounce Water (cold)
Mix the jello mix with the boiling water until the powder is fully dissolved and then add the rest of the water and the alcohol. Pour the mixture into either shot glasses or paper cups. Shot glasses are more attractive, but the paper cups are easier to eat from.

Thanks John. I'm like you man. They can play acoustic and I'll love every minute of it but my old hands just seems to do better on the electric.

You would have heard if I had died my brother. That's the only thing I can think of that would stop me from being at Wanee. (Atually I'd even be there still) I've just been busy as a one armed wallpaper hanger with the crabs. I'm back now. Thanks for thinking of me man.

It appears that Mule is playing in CO the night before Wanee. "Gov't Mule will be performing at Dobson Arena in Vail, CO on April 10th"
Hope they have a safe and smooth trip down to Florida on April 11.

Drummy - 2/19/2008 at 12:48 PM

I lost track way back in this thread, so is there going to be an open RRC jam session like last year? I am coming in Thursday so it would be great to jam with all those fantastic musicians from last year. Terrapintom, Steve, Maggie's man (who's name slips my memory at the moment), and lots of others, I hope we get to jam again, as it was some amazing tunage last year.

So, are we plugged in this year? Inquiring minds want to know!


BigDaveOnBass - 2/19/2008 at 02:14 PM

FarmerMaggie's husband is toovakynd, aka, Henry. As far as I know, and can tell from the sign up sheet, most everyone who played last year will be there again this year.


ryanmccrary - 2/19/2008 at 07:09 PM

Hereís my guess at the breakdown for Friday. I hope we donít have to choose b/w Levon and Mule(Iíd have to be at mule), but the only other possibility is choosing b/w Levon and Mofro(love mofro, but would have to see levon).

Anyone have other thoughts on how this thing will play out?

Main Stage
1230-130 Inca Maya
145-245 Randall Bramlett
300-400 Larry McCray
415-515 Mofro
530-730 Mule
800- ABB

Mushroom Stage
100-200 The Frequency
215-315 Oteil
330-430 Junior Brown
445-600 Levon Helm

Now this is just some good old fashioned speculation, but Iíve been the other wanee fests and thereís always tough choices that have to be mad

I sure hope Levon gets the Peach Stage. He definitely deserves it more than Mofro. No disrespect to Mofro, I really enjoy them a lot, but Levon is a legend.


susea - 2/19/2008 at 07:19 PM

I think Levon will get the Peach stage and he should!

Indeed!! Levon is the one I'm most excited about this year!! The Mushroom stage is more intimate, though, so if he does play over there, it might be even better!


ryanmccrary - 2/19/2008 at 08:10 PM

I'm just going by what I've seen in the past for that rough breakdown. The Suwannee Amphitheatre stage(mushroom stage) is actually one of my favorite stage setups of all time except for Red rocks of course and that new venue in Orange Beach Alabama. Anyway, I digress............... I'm sure everyone recalls the Radiators playing the mushroom stage last year right around when mule's set was going on on the Peach stage. Thats the only reason I slotted levon on the Mushroom Stage. He would pretty much be the highlight act on that stage for Friday just like how the Radiators closed it out last year over there. Levon is more of a legend in my mind than the Radiators, but you gotta admit the Radiators are icons in their own realm.............


LinnieXX - 2/19/2008 at 10:49 PM

i like the mushroom stage the best.

anyway anyone got a lightening rod we can borrow? we are WAAAAY too close to the church for my liking.....

I have learned the closer you are to god the better you are protected

Linnie this is almost right in front of the Amp stage! Better than Bear Creek. Tell Mac we are 100 yards down the hill now.

As Mark said wood should be cheap!



ha! i dont need no church to find god, but thankyouverymuch

and down the hill is good, i can just roll Lane to the stage....


RobJohnson - 2/19/2008 at 10:57 PM

Just heard from the Fantasma folks that they should have the complete lineup by Friday

As many of us had figured out, that list is a few bands short of a Wanee, to coin a phrase


Dannyspell - 2/19/2008 at 11:07 PM

Levon deserves the Peach Stage. People are going to totally blown away with Levon and his band. levon is a musican's musican and total professional in every sense of the word.


susea - 2/19/2008 at 11:49 PM

I love both stages for their unique differences. Mushroom being more intimate. The Peach stage for all who play there are heard throughout the park! This is why I feel Levon should play there...

Looking forward to the RRC jamfest! Heck, we don't need the official bands to even show up! We've got enough music to carry the whole festival ourselves!
But seriously, folks...
Levon Helm!!!!
Junior Brown!!!
The ABB needs to get both of these guys up on stage with them.

My tickets finally arrived yesterday. So now all I need is for the calendar to say April and not February...


RobJohnson - 2/20/2008 at 02:25 PM

Excellent news about PBS! One of the most underrated bands in the world today.

George Porter is my favorite bass player, and drummer Russell Batiste and guitarist Brian Stoltz are in my Top 10 on their instruments. This is the best "power trio" going.

They have a strong New Orleans funk vibe, of course, but if you haven't seen them you might be surprised by how heavy some of their music is. I once described them as a cross between Band of Gypsys and early Gov't Mule.

A good festival just got a lot better!

New Orleans in the house! Can I get a Hell Yeah?


susea - 2/20/2008 at 11:09 PM

More added to the Friday lineup must mean many, many more to be added for Sat. I say that because it seems there are not as many booked yet for Sat! Unless what we have play longer...

jpfudd5 - 2/22/2008 at 01:32 AM

Vic is in the Flecktones. Bela's site says the Wanee gig is Bela Fleck and The Sparrow Quartet.

Here is a video of the Sparrow Quartet. I have only listened to the Flecktones but this excites me beyond belief. I truly hope there will be some collaborations on Saturday.

As if this wasn't great already. WOW! Bela is awesome!! Huge add IMO.

48 Days until Wanee....

Even less for serious planning and gear inventory.

Wooo Hooooooo.

M.W.Jones - 2/22/2008 at 02:17 PM

Seems like this years festival is going to have a bit more music going on than last year. Quite a few acts already confirmed and by the sound of things, numerous more to be added. I think the attendance is going to increase greatly this year too. Is it a chance that they will have more than the 2 stages going this year? The park centainly has multiple additional locations for a 3rd stage area.


MotherTeresa - 2/22/2008 at 02:27 PM

Yes the park has more stages and Magnolia Music and Events festivals Springfest and Magnolia Fest reguarly have at least 4 stages going on. The Music Hall and several other spots for stages are available around the park.

Yep Warjag, we have seen Bela at the SOSMP at time or two already!


heineken515 - 2/22/2008 at 02:54 PM

banesh - 2/22/2008 at 03:05 PM

Almost like an Easter Egg hunt heineken515! Some bands sites that individuals frenquently vist, reflect Wanee in their tour schedule One more that I know of but am hoping, like Rob Johnson said here a few days ago in this thread, they will be announced today sometime.


RobJohnson - 2/22/2008 at 03:18 PM

I don't think they will have more than two stages, but I could be wrong. You could still fit everybody on the list into the same two-stage format as before.

I don't think there are "numerous" additions to come. With PBS, Papa Mali and Bela Fleck, the lineup is rounded out pretty well, and I'd expect another handful of goodies, but not too many. Certainly no lack of talent there already!

Thanks Bro Dave, but I am not AT ALL impatient. Wanee is WAY off and I was just curious as to where all these other folks were getting their info.

So I guess I just go and check all my favorite bands' sites and see if they are going to Wanee? Might take awhile....

lilsugarmagnolia - 2/26/2008 at 05:50 PM

Graduate in Spring 09 I can't wait. I actually think the real world will be less stressful without the papers and studying and having to take classes that you hate (for example, biology, haha)

Hopefully I will continue to study hard and play hard til the end of the semester (all things in balance ) so that I can come down again this year (will be my 3rd Wanee ) Maybe I can get my dad to come over too... who knows!!

BigDaveOnBass - 2/26/2008 at 06:05 PM

Rach (by the way, my baby daughter is named Rachel, and I often call her Rach or Rachii,)

If you've been to Wanee two of the last three years, chances are you've been by The River Road Compound, located in the RV sites right behind the Peach Stage on River Road. We have a big electric jam there every year and this year will be no different. Please consider this your invitation to stop by and introduce yourself to all of us from the website. There will literally be dozens upon dozens of us there. Hope to see you there!


lilsugarmagnolia - 2/26/2008 at 06:11 PM

I've made my way down there a time or two I will be sure to stop by and say hello this year though. I might be coming down solo, unless I can convince some friends to go (I know, you're wondering, why the heck would someone need convincing... i guess you don't understand til you go )
Most people close to me call me Rach or LuLu (My middle name is Louise), my mom calls me Rache. My parents almost named me Sunshine. I'm named after the girl in the Thornbirds (Rachel Ward) According to my dad she was pretty hott. I have yet to get my hands on a copy of the Thornbirds. Maybe someday soon!

If you are a tent camper, we'll have space for you and your tent. We will have 6 sites (maybe as many as 8 sites total) in the compound this year, and I may be the only one with a camper this year. Usually we have 3 or 4 campers, but our other compounders from previous Wanees are going to a different part of the park this year. So, if you want to hang with us, you're welcome.

So there's a final lineup??? According to Susea's GB post, Del McCoury Band at Wanee! This is truly an amazaing band folks - bluegrass at it's finest for sure. Looks like they will be playing oposite of Porter - Batiste - Stoltz... Wondering which stage Smokinop will be at


MotherTeresa - 2/27/2008 at 07:13 PM

hmmm wonder what happened to Bela???


BigDaveOnBass - 2/27/2008 at 07:15 PM

I see Honeytribe IS on the bill for Saturday. Cool. He's all over FL around that time.

Seeing as we'll have a low key acoustic campfire jam on Saturday after the Soul Stew Revival set, maybe we'll be able to get the HT boys to stop by RRC and hang out...we'll see....

Honeytribe and Tinsley should both start and end at different times - hope so anyway. If not, I will be at Tinsley's show and will just have to hear the Tribe later around a fire or down the road

Its all GOOD....

HoneyTribe plays some great music....

No DOOM dancing though....


Mitzi and I will save our DOOM DANCIN' for the Hayseed jam

Honeytribe and Tinsley should both start and end at different times - hope so anyway. If not, I will be at Tinsley's show and will just have to hear the Tribe later around a fire or down the road


Yeah,

I have seen Honeytribe a couple of times and they are great....

Helen and I will be wrapped up at Tinsley together. My first time seeing him (kicking myself in the arse).....


I think I may have to join you two!!


Benjamin - 3/1/2008 at 01:17 AM

The last three years, Emily and I picked a stage and stayed there up front all day...well, last year we wandered some on Saturday.

This year, I can't pick just one either day.....

BigDaveOnBass - 3/1/2008 at 06:39 PM

OK, Krishna and Scott are in 224A. Who has 226A? I thought Angela had 226A. Whatever... We'll have lots of room again this year.

Yes, I am going to confirm all things Wanee this week. Sorry to be out of the loop for a bit. I'll get back to you Krishna and Terripin about the sites this week but you guys have to spots. Krishna I'm going to send you a PM.


MissTerry - 3/1/2008 at 07:31 PM

Dave, what's our number and how close are we to Krishna?


EasyMichael - 3/1/2008 at 08:11 PM

Boy, my sense of direction must really be off. It appears that the Mushroom stage is kind-of behind the Helen's Hilton area. But in walking the grounds last year, the Mushroom stage seemed in the other direction--like the Mushroom stage should be down in the lower right corner of that map. Huh. No, I wasn't drinking...

Yeah...we're both at 224A & 226 A..........everything's cool & groovy,Baby!

Uh-oh!..........I can feel it now......it's starting to take over my every thought........WANEE is in the air!!


BigDaveOnBass - 3/1/2008 at 09:19 PM

OK, it's settled then.

Krishna and TerrapinTom and their groups are in 224A and 226A. Those sites front River Road.

Me and FarmerMaggie have, between the two of us, 228A&B, 230A&B and 232A&B.

I think I may be the only one with a camper in the compound this year. Henry and Maggie will set up their place around the groovy little hippie mini-van.

MissTerry, you and your group plan on pitching tents on one of those six sites. I think Freebrd1975 will need space. Also, I do believe Kim and Frank will be back this year. Who else may want to stay at River Road this year?

I love that one Krishna. Is that Linnie with you and Duane? I'm looking forward to seeing you too Linnie. And everyone. Really.

I know I don't interact much sometimes and that I have mainly focused on the music thing on the board and in real life, but this year I am primarily going to hang and to connect with you guys. Of course I am going to watch some of the music too, but this year it is my secondary reason for going. For years the music had to be embedded into my heart, mind and soul. Finally, I have it. Now I can open up more to you guys. I have a little dyslexia with names of people and things and numbers too, so sometimes when I meet so many people I get overwhelmed and can't remember names again. So please, if I ask you your name don't get offended. I remember you, I just have a hard time remembering names.

Anyway, I think this year is going to be a great year. In a lot of different ways. :-)


MotherTeresa - 3/2/2008 at 10:14 PM

It's really nice and warm, about 76 degrees, today in sunny North Florida. I do hope it stays that way for Springfest and Wanee. I hate to be cold at festivals.

I've been so busy I haven't even had a chance to check in, but I've still been thinking so much about Wanee and absolutely cannot wait! It seems to consistently rank as one of the best weekends of my life every year, so I'm planning on that again. I hope to see everyone I met last year and meet everyone I have not yet seen. I'm glad my parents will be able to come down and join me this year. They've heard a lot about Helen's Hilton and the RRC and I'm sure they'll have as much fun as we all do.

Hey Rottin, My mom's uncle use to work for the Schlitz co. (or at least the brewer that makes Schlitz) Weird because I think he was a t-totaler!



When I was my sons age, (20yrs) I got a job driving the Schlitz truck here in Gastonia. Hell of a fun job for a 20 year old. The only brands on the truck were Schlitz, Schlitz Light (first light beer on the market) Schlitz Malt Liquor, and Old Milwaukee. That was March 1979. Made a damn good living selling beer in those days. "The Kiss of the Hops"


From Wilki


Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company was an American brewery based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The beer it produced, Schlitz, was often considered the archetype of working-class beers. It has one of the best-known slogans in the American brewing industry: "The beer that made Milwaukee famous". The Schlitz container also boasts "Just the kiss of the hops."

The company was founded by Joseph Schlitz, who came to America from Mainz, Germany in 1850, at the age of 20. Schlitz flourished in the frenzied beer industry of pre-Civil War Milwaukee, where saloons and breweries sprang up by the hundreds, and in 1856 he took over management of the large brewery owned by the recently deceased August Krug. Two years later he married Krug's widow and changed the name to the Joseph Schlitz Brewing Co.

The company really began to succeed after the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, when Schlitz donated thousands of barrels of beer to that city, which had lost most of its breweries. He quickly opened a distribution point there, beginning a national expansion. Schlitz built dozens of tied houses in Chicago, most with a concrete relief of the company logo embedded in the brickwork; several of these buildings survive today, including Schuba's Tavern at the corner of Belmont and Southport.

MotherTeresa - 3/13/2008 at 12:42 PM

Wendy's, Waffle House, and Huddle House. McDonald's too I think. I think there is a place to eat in the Best Western. Might be a Subway across at the Walmart and there is a Publix grocery store further down into town. Not a lot of "dining" in Live Oak.

Vendor food is pretty good as well as the cafe in the SOSMP.

Less than a month to go!

Thank you so much. I wish I could. However I have a very bad knee and scheduled knee replacement May 27. I just don't think I can handle Wanee right now although the entertainment they have signed up is amazing. Maybe next year. You have enough fun for me too.

I am going to two Beacon shows. It's not so hard to walk on flat surfaces and you can always get a cab. Beacon shows: May 13 and 15. Leaving New York on the 17th.

hmmmmmmmmmmm, wonder what this means for Wanee this year?

Live Nation To Buy Stoll Assets
March 12, 2008

By Ray Waddell, Nashville

Live Nation has signed a binding letter of intent to purchase the majority of the late Florida concert promoter Jon Stoll's live entertainment assets.

The deal includes 3,500-capacity Mizner Park Amphitheater in Boca Raton, Fla., and the 2,900-capacity Pompano Beach (Fla.) Amphitheatre, as well as the Fantasma name and current inventory of shows, and two music festivals produced by Fantasma.

Lori Stoll, Jon Stoll's widow and a principle in Fantasma, will be employed by Live Nation in a senior position in the company's Florida office, and maintain a percentage ownership in the business for several years. She will also maintain ownership of the Fantasma Tours International booking agency.

The Fantasma additions will fill important niches in Live Nation's Florida venue portfolio which already includes the House of Blues in Orlando (capacity 2,100), the Ford Amphitheatre in Tampa (capacity 19,000), Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach (capacity 19,000) and the newly-opened Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theatre in Miami Beach (capacity 2,100). The acquisition will also add two venues in the important mid-sized venue category in one of the top 20 markets in the United States.

Stoll died Jan. 12 at 54 after an extended illness.




MissTerry - 3/15/2008 at 11:21 PM

I saw that earlier, and saw the"RIP Fantasma" post on Myspace. This could mean some big changes.

SHUGGIE - 3/18/2008 at 08:49 PM


Probably should've posted here in the first place ( my West To Wanee thread's attempts at British humour didn't go down too well). We would welcome all advice and tips to arrive safely at Wanee.

Lyyn and I are using Kissimmee as our cheapo-cheapo base-camp ( later in our 2 week holiday we're going down to Miami & the Keys) and driving up to Wanee on the Friday morning. Any helpful travel suggestions would be really appreciated.

I've been a fan of the Allmans ever since the mighty UK DJ John Peel played tracks from "Brothers & Sisters" back in the early 70s. By the the 80s I was more interested in stuff by post-punk bands like Pere Ubu, the Gang of Four & Talking Heads. It took "Hittin'The Note " to get Lynn and me back in love with the brothers.

Since then we've caught a couple of 06 Mule shows in the UK, at Pistoia in Italy and last year in London. At the latter, at a post-show visit to the pub we meet Harvey and and a few other Euro-Hittin the Noters.

We're really looking forward to flying over to Florida and enjoying two days of great music. Please include us in all festival festivities.

Peace & good movement,

Shug & Lynn.


lolasdeb - 3/18/2008 at 08:58 PM

Shug - that Pistoia gig looks remarkable. Was that part of the yearly music fest?


BigDaveOnBass - 3/18/2008 at 09:11 PM

SHUG, you staying overnight Friday at the festival campgrounds? Bring a tent, air mattress and sleeping bags with you. You'll dig it.


greggswoman - 3/18/2008 at 09:48 PM

So Shug, I take it you caught Gregg at Pistoia then?

That's one hell of a drive if you drive from Key West tio Live Oak. Nearly 12 hours.......

Glad to help with any travel questions you may have. I live in Florida.

Kissimmee to Live Oak should be a 3 1/2 hr drive taking the turnpike to I-75 N.

Plan on bringing a tent and sleeping bags and stay for a while.

Send me a PM if you have any questions..........

By the looks of it, Kissimmee is their "base-camp" so even tho I'm not geographically Florida friendly that wouldn't be quite a 12 hour drive to Live Oak would it ?? more like 6 hours ??

Any-who....Shug, if you happen to notice a "Welcome to West Virginia" sign, you've gone too far
(that be an inside joke with ori)

Welcome and hope to meet up with you in person and I'm sure all the Floridians will help you out with all/most of your questions

I want to recommend again this year that everyone try and spend some time on the river while you are at Suwannee.

The park is a magical place but the river itself is where all the magic truly resides. Seem's alot of folks coming this year earlier and staying longer, leaving some prime opportunities to spend some true "quality time" with a group of friends having a great time experiencing some the most beautiful nature Florida has to offer.

I have spent alot of time on and in the Suwannee River and it is always a new and exciting place around every bend, always beautiful, ever changing and therapeutic beyond belief

The Canoe Outpost is right there in the park and for around $12 a person they will load up your crew and canoes, paddles, preservers and take you right across the road to Suwannee Spring and drop you off for a wonderful little 1-2 hour paddle right back around to the canoe outpost. Lot's of great little white sandy beaches along the way to stop off and enjoy the nature along the shore, rope swings, cliffs to jump from, take a cooler, take a picnic lunch...hell, take whatever you want, just please try and spend some time with the river this year if you can

You can thank me later

Many thanks for all the more than helpful travel advice. (wont we know we're in West Virginia by the local's Crystal Meth look in their eyes?) We're heading up to Live Oak from Kissimmeee on the Friday morning leaving the South Florida part of our trip for the 2nd week of our holiday. Already armed with a wee tent and sleeping bags. Any idea where on site you pick up your ticket? We booked ours over the internet.

The year we went to Pistoia (05) the line-up featured the Mule, Robert Plant (Friday) & Dylan (Saturday). Plant was meant to go on last but had more pressing business the next evening so it was left to Warren and the boys to headline. Mighty fine job they did too.

See you all soon,

'Nuff Said,

Shug

You'll know you're in WV when you stop for gas and find out they only sell pork rinds and ripple wine.

Tickets can be picked up at will call after you enter the park. I suggest arriving as early as possible to avoid the long lines.

We'll save you a spot in the Hilton compound for your tent.

Watch out for the Wookie Meth Lab tent around the corner from the Hilton on your way in. I understand it's a DEA trap..........


TEX - 3/19/2008 at 05:34 PM

Can anyone confirm for me that tix ordered through musictoday have NOT been shipped yet?

I know they usually wait 'til about now to start shipping, however, I'm currently having problems w/ UPS notifying me of deliveries and want to make sure these tix aren't floating around out there somewhere.

Many thanks.

Peace!

That's what I thought warjag. Hoping the actual times will be posted on the webi before the fest this year.

Hey Michael... This is about the best pricing I've seen where you just flip a switch and inflates and deflates. http://www.airbeds4less.com/supremeairbed/index.htm It's a tall one like Krishna's talking about. Or, Kmart and Walmart have tall ones too - not sure about the pricing. You staying with us at the Hilton? Let me know if you need anything.

This is about the best pricing I've seen where you just flip a switch and inflates and deflates. http://www.airbeds4less.com/supremeairbed/index.htm It's a tall one like Krishna's talking about. Or, Kmart and Walmart have tall ones too - not sure about the pricing. You staying with us at the Hilton? Let me know if you need anything.


EZM, don't buy one yet. BDOB and I are talking inventory and I think we might have one for you...


Thanks very much for the offer, John.

The catch is that we're (or, most likely, Sheyenne is) driving down from Raleigh Thursday night. Last year we got to the hotel at about 2 a.m. I need to have it already with me; my right hip took days to recover from sleeping on the floor last year. I'm such an old man...

Helen, thanks for the recommendation. I'll take look.


EasyMichael - 3/22/2008 at 08:22 PM

I love how gracious and giving you folks are.

See there, if you had taken my spot in the camper as I offered last year your old hip would have been in good shape...

And I could have slept under MY comforter on the other end of the camper....

Anyone staying at the Best Western in Live Oak ? I'm arriving with my son on thursday afternoon, and as this is my first Wanee, it would be nice to say hello to folks from this great forum.
Is there any activity scheduled in the park for thursday night ?


Drummy - 3/25/2008 at 11:44 AM

Yeah man, Thursday night is the infamous River Road Campfire Jams!!

No bands, just jams, best part of the weekend IMHO. Come on down and see for yourself what everyone is talking about.

I am really saddened by the ABB not being at Wanee
Wanee IS totally about the Allman Brothers Band in my eyes.....it's so hard for me to imagine it any other way.
I wish Gregg nothing but the very best healing vibes & I will keep him in my prayers & I will most definitely go to see him when he returns to the stage.
The main thing is his healing & relaxation right now.
Much love & Big Hugs to you all~


hilarieandthefamily - 3/27/2008 at 04:35 PM

I think Big Dave will still be the Camp Fire Master, if I could go I would just to sit with Big Dave.

Get well Gregg and come play Chicago - and Red Rocks.....


danik56 - 3/27/2008 at 05:32 PM

Obviously health is above all. Get well Gregg.
I'm just hoping they won't cancel the entire Wanee event at the last moment.


BigDaveOnBass - 3/27/2008 at 05:37 PM

Dani, I don't think they'll do that. The rest of the bands are committed. Tickets have already been sold. Wanee is ON! We'll just have to do it without the Brothers this year...unfortunately.


BigDaveOnBass - 3/27/2008 at 05:42 PM

I'm obviously disappointed my band won't be there this year, but as I said in another thread, there are bigger issues involved. I think that if anyone is reconsidering going to Wanee on account of the Brothers' cancellation, we need to do this. Let's continue the Wanee tradition in honor and in support of Gregg and the rest of the band. We'll handle the ABB music at River Road Compound.

I predict we're going to see some SENSATIONAL sit ins with all the different groups playing this year. Warren, Derek and Oteil will be there with their other groups. I think the Brothers cancellation is going to be cause for ALL the other bands performing to step it up a notch. Mark my words.


peachygurl - 3/27/2008 at 05:59 PM

nice post Dave...I totally agree with what you've said. I wish I was fortunate enough to be able to go to Wanee this year & as much as it sucks that the ABB aren't gonna be there, they will be there in spirit. Those of you that are blessed enough to go, have a wonderful time enjoying the fine music that will be played & the brother & sisterhood created here & shared through our love & passion for the ABB & extended family....that's what it's all about


lolasdeb - 3/27/2008 at 06:17 PM

Great post Dave! Although having ABB out of the picture is sad, you know there is a wealth of talent on that line-up who will all be bringing their best game. And keeping Gregg's best interests at heart, honoring him in their music.

Sang fits in real good down south.

No need to cancel folks. We need to get together during times like this. There will be music, great music, and Gregory can be proud of what he has brought together. We are all here because of a common love for this band. Lets show them the love. This band and the people here are family. I'm looking forward to seeing you all!!!!!!! Gregory, you rest.

danik56 - 3/27/2008 at 10:27 PM

I can really understand the huge disappiontment many people feel right now. in particular those who have never seen the ABB live before.
I was planning this trip to WANEE for a long time, as it involves traveling from the other side of the planet, and honestly the chance to see the ABB twice got me really excited.

But we need to put things back into proportion. There is still great music to be played, and the line up is still very exciting. Lets hope there won't be any further cancelations.

I'm coming to WANEE, and I can only wish Gregg a quick recovery, (and I wish I'll get another chance to see the ABB live)


heineken515 - 3/27/2008 at 10:35 PM

Hey man, I was thinking of you and any others that probably had already booked flights from across the pond...or wherever, glad to hear you're still upbeat and positive.


danik56 - 3/27/2008 at 10:58 PM

I just checked the Holiday Inn Express at Live Oak, and rooms are available for the Wanee weekend after a long time of no availability. This must mean that people are canceling.


danik56 - 3/27/2008 at 11:01 PM

i think wanee will be just fine without the abb but i'm guessing we will probably get another headliner.

we grabbed two tix for friends that wanted to see the ABB (they dont know the other bands yet). I'm not looking forward to telling them they wont be there and i damn sure hope i dont get stuck with the tickets now.

regardless, i am stiill coming on Weds. afternoon and not leaving till Sunday night. i actually left in the middle of the ABB's saturday night set last year to go rest up for Derek anyway. ("old before my time" was the song, which was pretty fitting....)

jswihart01 - 3/28/2008 at 09:44 PM

My ticket arrived in the mail yesterday and then I wake up this morning to see the cancellation notice on the site. What a bummer. Have to admit I thought about trying to get a refund since MY biggest reason for being there has cancelled. But it's not about me. I can't even begin to imagine how bad Gregg is feeling about now. I'll be there to carry on and the road goes on forever....The music will live in our hearts and souls till the universe disappears.

My prayers go out to Gregg and family during this difficult time. Get well brother.




LinnieXX - 3/28/2008 at 09:49 PM

have a good weekend all! i've been spending my weekends digging in the dirt, my hands are waaaaaaaaaay too dirty to touch my laptop till Monday

Krishna - 3/29/2008 at 02:48 PM

I love you gys & will definitely miss each & everyone of my Peach Sisters & Brothers!!

Truth is.....we were really havin a hard time gettin the cash together for tickets & roadtrip (we were gonna have to rent a vehicle to drive down too because my van's engine blew up)
Plus my baby sitter has been giving me all kindsa excuses on how she may or may not be able to watch the kids for the entire time.(And I definitely can't afford to bring them)
The 2 days of ABB really is what Wanee is based around,IMO.
I think that it will be very special w/ all of the musicians sittin in & steppin up for Gregg not being there...but it's still not gonna be the same.
I really love the HTW Family & all of the Camp Jams & all of the interaction feeds my soul immensely,but honestly I just really don't see how we can make it happen.
I wish Gregg the BEST healing vibes,but I'm gonna stay in the Cincy area & save myself ALOT more money than I've already spent + 13 hours on the road.

Plus....(to make myself feel a lil better)....I have passes to Panic w/ Galactic on 4/9, ekoostik hookah on 4/11, & a few bands that I work with from outta town(Covert Operations & the Werks) on 4/11 that are all going to be in Cincinnati during Wanee time that I was gonna miss out on.(So now I won't)
We'll definitely be there with everyone in HIGH spirit.....& I love you all!

MissElf - 3/29/2008 at 03:08 PM

Krishna, We have the same problem with money! The cost of tickets was not in my yearly budget, because we have been invited by a band member, in past years. Since the band won't be there, no tickets, no us! I was gonna go down on Tuesday and pay to camp for two days, then leave on Thursday......or rob a bank or something. Some wonderful person just gave me an early birthday present and voila!....we'll be there...both of us. And, we will miss you and we will know you are having a good time in Cincy.

This could be OK folks! With the instruments in place, the SoulStew set just may have more members than we anticipate which would extend the jams...not a bad thing at all IMHO!

I hope that everyone who has tickets and have decided not to go, will throw them in to some people looking for tickets on this site....

Say it ain't so! (I totally understand about y'all not making it, but I have to say you will truly be missed, at least by this little drummer boy.)

Krishna, you truly live the spirit of Wanee and I always look fwd to your posts because they are always so positive and full of love. I just hate that you and Scot will not be sharing the vibes at Wanee this year.

ABB won't be there, K&S won't be there, aw crap....

Peace to you both, Drummy

Oh Man, I was really looking forward to meeting you'll!


DIPASTENA - 3/30/2008 at 03:56 PM

Just some thoughts on this Sunday morning, about Wanee and what it all means to me.
First off being one week into my 42nd year, I'm thinking about the part that the ABB
has played in my life. I started listening to the "Beginnings" and "Brothers and Sisters" albums at about age 7 and have been tied to them since, soundtrack of my life.
I remember checking out the inside cover of "Brothers and Sisters" the big picture of the extended family all together and I would picture myself in there, funny huh.
Anyways Wanee to me makes that happen and this website too of course (thanks Lana and Rowland). There have been times when there has been much love and support, like when I was dealing with my wife's Bi-Polar illness and when I was arrested at last years Wanee for smoking a bowl at my tent before the ABB went on Saturday night.
When I first heard about Gregg's condition I was bummed that they wouldn't be playing Wanee but was glad that the treatments were working and Gregg just needs some recovery time.
I'm looking forward to this Wanee and I'm sure it will be one were we will be talking about it for years to come. Looking forward to that family feeling, come on people get ready!!!!!!
Peace to All, see you soon
Todd.


susea - 3/30/2008 at 04:52 PM

MotherTeresa - 3/31/2008 at 02:43 PM

I got back from Suwannee Springfest last night and it was a great fest. The park was in fine form and posting signs all over the place that Wanee was NOT cancelled.

I hated to leave and so did Jamgram, ConcreteBlond and ATLBARB. WE will return to the park mucho soon. More Mule sounds good to me!

Hope the fine weather holds up for Wanee.

Word to folks who haven't been yet. Bring all kinds of clothes. It was hot and sunny friday and sat and cool at night and then yesterday it was overcast and kinda cool and it surprised me cause I was expected another hot day. Be prepared cause it can get very hot and very cold in North Florida this time of year!


ecosense - 3/31/2008 at 02:50 PM

OKAY!!!! I am SO ready for Wanee!!
the question I have that is kinda starting to simmer in me is:

WHERE are my tickets? I purchased them on February 3rd through ticketstoday.com

I have not received them yet!

Is anyone else in my position of ordering but NOT having recieved them yet??
Should I be worried yet?
I'll be leaving in 8 days for the campground and would love to have my tickets IN HAND!!!!!!!!!!!


jmf81123 - 3/31/2008 at 02:59 PM

I have ticket ($145 firm) selling in Orlando area only. Serious inquiries please pm. I will be going if there are no takers at that price.


banesh - 3/31/2008 at 03:06 PM

Nancy... You should call at this point. It may be that they will be at Will Call Thursday morning so print out your receipt and have it ready.

Good advice, Mama T. The first WaneeFest it got down to 38 degrees on Saturday night. Bring a pair of sweats in case it blows cold at night.


Otherwise, get as close to nekkid as possible if it gets hot.


rottinpeach - 3/31/2008 at 03:55 PM

I guess its ok to get your tickets at the gate on WED??? (both extra day camping and Wanee)

Are the tickets on sale at the gate Wed??

I called down and the girl I talked too didnt have a clue???????

I am reading so much about folks not getting there tickets yet who ordered online. It would be nice to know. Its crunch time...............


If I order now from TB (TM) will they mail or hold at the willcall. (online sales)????

[Edited on 3/31/2008 by rottinpeach]


heineken515 - 3/31/2008 at 04:06 PM

I ordered and already received mine via Ticketmaster, actually got them weeks ago.


banesh - 3/31/2008 at 04:22 PM

I guess its ok to get your tickets at the gate on WED??? (both extra day camping and Wanee)

Are the tickets on sale at the gate Wed??

No, don't think so - at least they never have been in the past. Festival tix have always been available at the gate on Thursday. You just tell me when you arrive on Wednesday that you are camping "primative" on Wednesday night and you will purchase your festival ticket on Thursday as soon as the box office opens (noonish)?

I am reading so much about folks not getting there tickets yet who ordered online. It would be nice to know. Its crunch time...............

Just buy your tix at the gate on Thursday. There were three or four methods of ordering tickets early on. Mine were through ticketmaster and have arrived. Music Today, no idea the status of the shipment. SOS - no idea the status of the shipment. I would ot order on-line this late in the game. It will not sell out so just buy them at the gate on Thursday.

If I order now from TB (TM) will they mail or hold at the willcall. (online sales)????

Yes but I would still just purchase them at the gate. There are several of us that have our tickets but will have to ride up the the entrance to receive our wrist bands on Thursday. Kinda the honor system Done this every year.

All will be well

I don't have mine yet either - alos ordered via Ticketstoday back in February.

I'm not leaving until Thursday morning though....I also seem to remember tix coming late the last three years too.

No harm in calling to check on things though.

Just back from a BEAUTIFUL five days at SOS and it just couldn't have been any better I don't believe!
The river is high and the water is DAMN COLD!!!!!! Didn't stop me from bathing in it, but sticking your toe in might make some think twice

Lin, I will be in touch. No worries about anything though, we have checked out the sites and they are too awesome to even tell you about! I will give you this much though, you could dance around your campfire at your campsite and watch SSR Saturday night from right there on your site at the ampitheater and have no problems
Jesse will be getting there on Wednesday as well and I'm sure will be in touch with you soon to coordinate everything!

SHUGGIE - 3/31/2008 at 06:51 PM


Undaunted but correctly upset by Greg's illness Lynn & I are still heading for Wanee from Scotland via Kissimmee on the morning of Friday 11th.

Guess we'll pick up our tickets when we get there. Also looked at site map for correct place to park and put up our tent. Do you just drive up to your prefered location, find a space and dump your stuff?

Please let us know where the vast majority of Hittin' The Noters will be and we'll see you in 10 days.

Float On,

Shug & Lynn

I guess its ok to get your tickets at the gate on WED??? (both extra day camping and Wanee)

Are the tickets on sale at the gate Wed??

No, don't think so - at least they never have been in the past. Festival tix have always been available at the gate on Thursday. You just tell me when you arrive on Wednesday that you are camping "primative" on Wednesday night and you will purchase your festival ticket on Thursday as soon as the box office opens (noonish)?

I am reading so much about folks not getting there tickets yet who ordered online. It would be nice to know. Its crunch time...............

Just buy your tix at the gate on Thursday. There were three or four methods of ordering tickets early on. Mine were through ticketmaster and have arrived. Music Today, no idea the status of the shipment. SOS - no idea the status of the shipment. I would ot order on-line this late in the game. It will not sell out so just buy them at the gate on Thursday.

If I order now from TB (TM) will they mail or hold at the willcall. (online sales)????

Yes but I would still just purchase them at the gate. There are several of us that have our tickets but will have to ride up the the entrance to receive our wrist bands on Thursday. Kinda the honor system Done this every year.

All will be well

Thanks Helen for the clarification. We will get ours at the gate....
Thanks again.

There will be 2 camps as have been discussed. The River Rd site where the Thursday night jam will take place and Helen's Hilton.

Those of us at the Hilton will arrive early in the week and set up the camp. You are welcome to drive in and pitch your tent with us there. My suggestion is to arrive as early as possible to avoid the backup of people waiting to get in on Friday. We hope to have room to park all of the vehicles within our camp as we have been able to do in the past.

I hope you have a great trip over here to the states and we'll see you @ the SOSMP on Friday. If you have questions just ask ..........

BigDaveOnBass - 4/2/2008 at 12:33 AM

Got my pop up camper pulled into the yard from it's resting position from the last year. Set it up and am happy to report the new seal I put under the AC unit took care of the water leaks that have plagued me in the past few years. No new rot, not too bad of a musty smell. I hope by the time Wanee 2009 rolls around, I will have talked my dad into selling me his travel trailer. My pop is 15 years old and is showing it's age. But, it beats the crap out of a tent....not that there is anything wrong with tent camping!!!


danik56 - 4/2/2008 at 09:41 AM

Me and my son are all set to roll out late thursday night, heading to NYC for a few days before flying down to Orlando on April 8.
Still need to figure out what kind of clothing we need to pack for this trip. In NY the forcast says 40-60 for the next week, and down in Florida the projection is 65-85.
Don't want to carry around to much warm clothing which I won't be using in Florida.
Btw, my tickets have arrived over a month ago from TM. no problem there.

Hey Dani... We will have spare jackets if it gets cold and you need them You never know what it will be like - sometimes it's really hot during the day. Just bring layers. If it rains, you can always grab one of those big black trash bags from our campsite

BigDaveOnBass - 4/2/2008 at 02:07 PM

From what I saw on the 10 day forecast in Live Oak, early next week the highs will be in the mid 80's. I think a sweater for potential cool evenings is all you'll need to bring for extra clothing. I think we'll be in for a treat, weather wise.


susea - 4/2/2008 at 02:13 PM

I think you're right Dave!! As of now, next Thur and Fri look great!! Don't forget sunblock for us with north/winter skin!


ecosense - 4/2/2008 at 02:39 PM

OKAY! my ticket update......
For anyone who ordered their Wanee tickets from/through ticketstoday.com

I found, online, an email and phone number for who I THOUGHT was ticketstoday.com (there was no phone or email addy on my receipt).........they nicely sent me an email stating that they are ticketstoday.ca (in Canada) and get this a lot and redirected me to the company I placed my order with . Its all sort of confusing. The company I placed with is actually musictoday!!
anyone who has placed their order with ticketstoday.com and hasn't received them should contact:
tix@musictoday.com OR 800-594-tixx

I emailed them less than an hour ago and immediately received an email stating that my email had been received and that my tickets will be shipped out to me TODAY. I am not sure if that is coincidence and they actually WERE being shipped today anyhow, but no matter........I should get them!
i am even MORE excited now........like thats possible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


greggswoman - 4/2/2008 at 04:18 PM

Dannyspell - 4/2/2008 at 04:19 PM

ryanmccrary - 4/2/2008 at 04:47 PM

WOW!!! 85 and sunny for Friday!!! amazing. We couldn't dream of better weather. I know it's still 10 days out, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed the forcast doesn't change. We always have to watch out for those 2 hour torrential downpours in North Fla. this time of year. I'd love to keep everything down there as dry as possible, even with the dust clouds from the sandy roads......

Hey everyone! Hilton Campsite would like to invite ya'll to come join us on Thursday for kind of a meet and greet and congrats and hello and hug thing! As some of you already know, the Jamgram family is expecting a new grandson this summer Ė yep, Ceiliaís going to have a little baby brother in June So come on by, visit a bit, congratulate Erin (she's getting big folks!), Tony, Celia, Pat and Syd and have some dinner with us! Gifts aren't necessary but in if you want to bring baby "Tony, Jr." something, Erin is registered at Target Ė you just need to type in her name (Erin Denatala), State (Georgia) and due date (June 11). She has told me that she does not need any blankets, sheets, towels, 0-6 months clothes like onesies, PJ's, gowns or size one diapers. I am sooooooo looking forward to seeing and meeting everyone in Live Oak!!!

ooooops - Tony, Jr. is actually IV

MissTerry - 4/3/2008 at 01:33 AM

Well, brothers and sisters, it is with much regret and sorrow that I announce my decision not to attend Wanee this year. This has NOTHING to do with the ABB cancelling. Hell, last year, I didn't see but a few minutes of the Brothers (due to being on the road with one of my bands and arriving early Saturday morning with no sleep), though I did hear most of Saturday night from our campsite. Wanee for me is about family, friends and great music from many bands, some of whose members are friends, and one band in particular is one of mine (Bonobos). That's why I attend, and the ABB is just icing on the cake. I look forward to Wanee each year beginning the minute I leave the park.

After much thought, which began before the cancellation announcement, I've decided it would not be in the best interests of my upcoming wedding in a few weeks (yes, I'm taking the plunge!), my business and my artists if I shut down for a few days. I've also been invited to speak at a music industry seminar that weekend. That coupled with all of the above brings me to this decision. We just have too much going on right now planning a wedding, with upcoming CD releases and tours, and keeping my boys and girls busy.

Bluedad, please sing Stormy Monday in my honor at the campsite jams. This was an extremely difficult decision. I will miss you all! I look forward to a few concert/jam calls and lots of pictures and videos.

Love, *sniff*


Terry
