The boyfriend and I had an amazing time.
It was three days filled with Jazz, Salsa and Funk. Even though my iPod is filled with relatively obscure indie artist like The Tallest Man on Earth (who I am seeing live next month!), Beach House, Taken by Trees and Fionn Regan, I do have a healthy appreciation for most types of music.
The Jazz and Salsa were amazing. Funk, though amazing in it's own special way I'm sure, I despise.
My favorite part of festivals are the vendors. I love looking at the random items for sale. This year's selection did not disappoint.
They even had my favorite item of all time.
If you ever find your self face to face with a furry drum, here are several steps you must be sure to take:
1. Stop and stare in awe.
2. Say to yourself out loud to confirm, "Yes, it is a furry drum."
3. Extend your arm towards the furry drum. Ensure there is epic music playing in the background and the slow motion effect has been turned on.
4. Make contact with the furry drum.
5. Proceed to rub and drum until content.
The highlight of weekends performance for me was the Jeff Hamilton Trio.
Okay, I realize they don't look all that interesting, but let me assure you, they are a sight to see.
Bill Hamilton (in the center) plays the drums like I've never seen.
Oh and in case you are expecting something crazy and mind blowing, this sample is pretty yellow mellow.
