Having covered the past two FloydFest’s with Jambandpurist, I have fallen in love with the mountaintop and the beautiful music that makes this festival one of the best in not only Virginia but the entire country. What the world needs now is music! And I need Floydfest. The lineup with Goose, Adrian Belew & Jerry Harrison with Turkuaz, Andy Frasco & The U.N. is truly unstoppable and I hope this festival is too. Below I will share some of my thoughts from previous reviews and I encourage you all to hope, pray, or whatever you do, that we can all make it back Floydfest this year. Thanks for continuing to read and support Jam Band Purist. 2020-21 has been a trying time but we are back with a vengeance and many new changes. See you all soon.
"In my eyes, FloydFest is the ultimate, all-around, bang for your buck, beginners festival. Not only is this a well-organized festival, it is also in my home state of Virginia and it gives me great pride that we host such a noteworthy event. Virginia is for music lovers."
"The view from this festival is the first thing that comes into my mind when I reminisce about last weekend’s events but the music is the real memory that will last. one-of-a-kind musical collaboration and improvisations, late-night sets and meeting new friends and old, this is what music festivals are all about. All of these things can be found in abundance at Floydfest."
The Moose Is Loose part deuce: (Moose Almighty Return with a second album)
"Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, one of my favorite up and comers, Moose Almighty are back with a brand new ripping album ‘Spare Parts’. Reminiscent of many Classic Rock and Jam bands with qualities that potentially match many of greats, Moose Almighty have their own sound and encompasse many aspects of the Jam sound. Ambitious and highly eclectic, these new tracks show the growth and knowledge that Moose Almighty has acquired from their last studio endeavor, while also incorporating what they have learned playing live shows. Moose Almighty has stepped up into another level and it shows in these newest songs." Look for the Full Jam Band Purist Album Review coming soon!
