This past Memorial Day weekend marked the 13th anniversary of Summer Camp Music Festival, and annual event that takes place at the celebrated Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, Illinois. Since the festival’s beginning in 2001, it has grown rapidly into a bona fide heavy-hitter event by delivering major artists of multiple genres year after year.
I feel the need to offer a disclaimer at the beginning of this review. I do not work for anyone at DelFest. I have nothing to gain regardless of what I write about DelFest, within this review. And it’s also important to note that I’ve been to each and every DelFest, and also happened to review them for Grateful Web, since the event began, 6 years ago. I say all of this now, as I’m about to gush... A lot..
Hands On A Hardbody, a new musical on Broadway with music by Trey Anastasio and lyrics by Amanda Green, officially opened on Broadway last week.The New York Times wrote of Trey's music, "The skillful score...locks into a bluesy country-rock vibe early and hugs it tight. The New Yorker calls the musical "a potent study of redemption in hard times".As a thank you for continued support, a 40% off ticketing discount is being offered for upcoming performances.
