Friends and fans come from across the country to dance and enjoy some of the best jambands in the Midwest, honoring and paying tribute to Jerry Garcia.This year's festival also marks Jerry Garcia's 70th Birthday and the 17th Anniversary of his untimely passing.

Grateful Web's Dylan Muhlberg had an opportunity to talk to Ken Hays, founder of Gathering of the Vibes festival.  Ken discussed the impetus for creating Vibes back in 1996, the current status of the jamband scene, why Vibes is such a family friendly fest. and Ken gives a hint on who we can expect from this year's Vibes...

There's a lot to be said for just dropping off the grid.  I'm not talking 'move to a desert island' kind of grid dropping..

Specific aromas have the power to transport me back to an earlier, more youthful time: the earthy redolence of decaying leaves, mesquite smoke wafting from a neighbor’s barbeque, and even the gamy stench of a hockey locker room.

But on Friday night, Phil and Friends changed that – not once, but twice.
