After a summer playing dates with the likes of the Allman Brothers Band and Tedeschi Trucks, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals brought it all back home to Vermont for Grand Point North, the two-day music festival they host at Waterfront Park on the banks of Lake Champlain in downtown Burlington.

All the headliners delivered multiple performances that displayed why they were the headliners at Lockn’ Festival and all the up and comers gave performances that ensure that the state of the Jamband genre is in a very good place.  Much of the credit for the scene remaining so strong is due Phil Lesh.

1. Gregg Allman looks like the kind of people he sings about. This isn’t meant in a disparaging way. The man just has a lot of miles on his face – character lines, you could call them. And you feel that each line and crag in that face could tell a hundred stories. I’m not sure if Mick Jagger lives a single line in any of his songs anymore. But you get the feeling Gregg Allman still does. “I don’t own the clothes I’m wearing, and the road goes on forever.”2.

Gathering of the Vibes is only two weeks away from its 18th year, returning once again to the water’s edge at Bridgeport, Connecticut’s 370-Acre Seaside Park. Weekend Camping Passes are currently priced at $225. Single Day Tickets and Single Day VIPs can also be purchased.

Wilco, Dave Matthews Band, Widespread Panic, Gov’t Mule and The String Cheese Incident are among a long list of musicians showing support for the non-profit organization HeadCount by offering VIP tickets, autographed merchandise, and some quality time.

VER LA LUZ, Scott Tournet's first solo album since 2006's Everyone You Meet Is Fighting A Hard Battle, hits streets today. The self-produced and independently released effort was recorded and engineered by Mike Kamoo (The Stereotypes, The Loons, Lights On), who engineered and mixed VER LA LUZ at his Earthling Studios in San Diego.

The 18th annual Gathering of the Vibes announces their initial line-up, keeping their track record – for nearly two decades as the premier music, arts and camping festival in the Northeast.

The 17th Annual All Good Music Festival & Campout continues its exhibition of distinct and internationally recognizable talent as the festival unveils its initial 2013 lineup. Over 40 celebrated bands and musical artists hit the stages July 18-21 at the Legend Valley Concert Venue & Campground - located 30 minutes east of Columbus - in Thornville, OH.

Let me get the lede out of the way right at the top: Grace Potter & The Nocturnals and The Avett Brothers are two of the hardest-working, hardest-rocking live bands you can see at any venue, any time.
