While festers were kickin’ it in the sand on the beach with great live music, the ZEW Krewe was busy backstage bringing Hangout Festival to folks on the grounds, around Mobile and around the world.
Listen to the audio of some of the 30++ interviews we did. Gotta love the way Hangout Festival spoils the artists, they are so much more candid, especially when there’s no video.
Elle King spontaneously wrote a song in honor of what we were all doing on the bus. She discussed being the offspring of comedian Rob Schneider. She’s only seen him about three times in her life, her dearest, darling mother is her father as far as she’s concerned.
Jeff and the Brotherhood gave one heck of a kooky interview and performance, Tony handled it well. Especially the ten or fifteen minute ‘noodle-jam’ that incorporated sounds of Sabbath & Widespread (I know, right?). They also covered Rush’s Working Man. Why? We don’t know.
The Word’s intense, gospelesque jammin’ rock n roll kicked things into gear for the weekend with their mindnumbing 10 minute jam of ‘Glory Glory Hallelujah’. Even broken-handed Robert Randolph plays like nobody’s business!
Roll Tide! Kopecky paid a visit to the ZEW Krewe’s beach house and performs a couple tunes, including the new one ‘QuarterBack’. Thank you Kaiser Realty for providing the roof and the temporary intimate venue!
Beck was phenomenal with his fat catalog and his 30 minute Where It’s At jam that included a cover of Sweet Home Alabama & a Beck harmonica solo.
