Moondance Jam 2014
Moondance Jam week is upon us! This music and camping festival that started out 23 years ago with local bands, has grown into one of the most respected and well run big name rock and roll festivals in the world. Crowds from all corners of the earth make the trek to Walker every year and have a great time listening to some of the biggest names in the music business.
It all starts with a pre-jam party on Wednesday starting at 6 PM with Urban Myth on the Saloon Stage. On the main stage Mountain Ash kicks things off at 7:30 followed by the Fabulous Armadillos at 9:00 and Hairball at 10:45. This if from the Moondance Jam website: “Hairball is a Rock & Roll experience you won't soon forget. A band puts on a concert-Hairball puts on an event! The lights, sound, smoke, fire, bombs, and screaming hoards of avid fans...to merely call it a concert would be like calling Mount Rushmore a roadside attraction!” I’ve seen both Hairball and Mount Rushmore, and I’d say that pretty much sums things up nicely.
It’s hard to explain the spell Moondance Jam puts people under. It’s just one of those things that if you’ve been there before, you just have to keep coming back, and if you haven’t been there, it needs to be on your bucket list. You don’t just experience Moondance, you live it. The sights, the sounds, the food…everything plays into making this a true American, red, white and blue campin’ and jammin’ event of the summer. If you don’t believe me, read the reviews and the history of this event by clicking HERE.
So, all we’ve done is cover Wednesday night, and the party is just getting started. Check back here tomorrow for more information about the bands this weekend…it’s a great lineup you won’t want to miss.
