NYF 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.
NYF are a collective playing some great trippy jamtronica. The band includes Cory Ricardy on drums, Nico Kiriazis on bass, and two of the Guavatron boys. Roddy Hansen plays keyboards, and that’s drummer Casey Luden on guitar! There are two guest sit-ins, Adonis Guava (Guavatron) first, then Brock Butler (Perpetual Groove). This set smokes! This is a new band; we’re looking forward to checking them out!
