A Peach Music Festival Playlist
More from the Peach Music Festival
Trigger Hippy “Southern Man”
Trigger Hippy is a supergroup you will not want to miss. The group consists of Steve Gorman (Black Crowes), Will Kimbrough, Joan Osborne, Jackie Greene, and Nick Govrik. The group debuted live at the Cox Capitol Theater in Macon, GA after several jam sessions but has changed lineups since (previously touring with Jimmy Herring and Audley Freed). The group only recently stepped into the studio to record their debut album. Though the world has heard little original music from the group, their sets have included a range of covers and songs from the member’s individual projects. Check out their take on Neil Young’s classic “Southern Man”.
Blackberry Smoke “The Whippoorwill”
In the Allmans’ tradition, the festival is filled with Southern Rock. One of the latest and greatest in the Southern Country genre is Blackberry Smoke, a group out of Atlanta, GA. While they’ve been around since 2000, they were only recently signed to Zac Brown Band’s label, Southern Ground. Their sound is familiar but updated. Check out the title track from their upcoming album, which is released August 14th (right after the festival), entitled The Whippoorwill.
Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk “Put It In The Dumpster”
Ivan Neville revamps the NOLA funk sound with Dumpstaphunk, a band that grooves to hard to pass up. Largely recognized for their live performances, Dumpstaphunk tours pretty constantly and is big on the festival circuit. It is a right of passage to see these guys at a festival. Lots of dancing! Not to be missed!
MiZ “Bury it Away”
MiZ was started in 2010 by singer/songwriter Mike Mizwinski. Mizwinski saw the Grateful Dead at age nine and decided that he wanted to spend his life making music. The Dead influence is pretty apparent in the groups relaxed jamming style and their well-written Americana songs speak for themselves. For a good taste of both the songwriting and jamming, check out “Bury it Away.”
Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes “I Don’t Want To Go Home”
Starting in Jersey in the mid-70s, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes are the real deal. The band’s pop songs are much beloved to Jersey residents and music critics to this day. “I Don’t Want To Go Home” speaks for itself as one of the bands earliest hits. Your mother will be jealous you caught this set.
