Guavatron at Farm to Grass Music Festival
The inaugural Farm to Grass Music Festival just went down at Saint Lucie Farm Preserve in Ft. Pierce, Florida, over the weekend of February 4-7. This promises to be a great new venue, and the fest was a great success. The lineup included The Grass is Dead, Uproot Hootenanny, Firewater Tent Revival, Guavatron, Free Range Strange, Souljam, and a dozen more great bands and performers.
Intrepid videographer Volke Mon and Pattie Boates, whose fine work has documented events such as Orange Blossom Jamboree, Hometeam New Year’s Rally, Wanee Music Festival, and Suwannee Rising, were there to record the festivities.
I am on record about Guavatron. They do trance-dance jamtronica and prog rock with the very best of ’em. Guavatron are: Roddy Hansen– keyboards/synths; Conor Crookham– bass guitar; Adonis Guava– guitar/vocals; and Casey Luden– drums. For this set, they were joined by Billy Gilmore on fiddle and Nico Kiriazis on acoustic guitar for “Restless Wind” (SCI) and by Brock Butler for the jam of “Spring Roll.”
