Someone asked me which three bands, other than headliner Pokey LaFarge, are absolutely not to be missed at this year’s Pedaler’s Jamboree. Last year’s pick was Dirtfoot, which turned out to be a universal favorite. The picks this year are:
Molly Gene One Whoaman Band. She’s worth a listen based solely on that name, in my opinion. She really is a one woman band. And quite a force. Catch her at Lucy’s in McBaine starting at 10:30 AM on Saturday.
The Ben Miller Band played on the Jamboree last year and were responsible for the traffic jam at Rocheport. It was hot, broiling, but no one wanted to move on. They have an interesting collection of…items that make music. It has to be seen to be believed, and the Jamboree is the perfect event to get up close and check them out. They will be playing on the stage at Kemper, at 6 PM on Saturday.
JD Wilkes & the Dirt Daubers play two hours later at 8 PM. This is the band guaranteed to get everyone, even exhausted cyclists, up and dancing. GUARANTEED.
