was a preview of the bands
worth going to see.
A full review of all the bands that our correspondent Robin Merritt who is a concert promoter & publicist with ArtFRONT Presentations was able to catch at this year’s Bonnaroo festival in rural Manchester Tennessee will be posted on the ArtFRONT.com site soon , so check back if You see this post before the article is up ’cause we’ll have the link posted here soon as it’s ready. (There should be a few nice photos as well.)
This year’s Bonnaroo held forth some of the top luminaries such as My Morning Jacket, Robert Plant & Allison Krause, Sigur Ros, B.B. King, Metallica and too many others to see all in one dusty sun baked weekend. With the exception of the fabulous experience of a three hour concert by My Morning Jacket in a psychedelic, night time rainstorm that proved to be one of the phenomenal events of the year. Also present were our friends Sam Quinn & Jill Andrews of the everybodyfields whom Robin has been updating us on for the last three years.
Exciting breakout performances by Knoxville TN band The Royal Bangs and Asheville NC’s Stephanie’sid caused excitement among the crowd as well as us here at the agency since we’ve been corresponding with them for a while. And though it’s too early to say if it will happen, we certainly would be interested in presenting and arranging shows and publicity for those two fine bands. Keep abreast of who the new up and coming talent is to look ourt for by staying in touch with us here and on the ArtFRONT.com site. Heck this is even a good reason to use that RSS subscription you’ve been scratching your head over. Much more info on all of this soon.
