Anthill Cinema at Orange Blossom Jamboree: Video & Photo Gallery
[The redoubtable Volke Mon and Pattie Boates took their 15 video cameras to Orange Blossom Jamboree (May12-16) at Sertoma Youth Ranch in Brooksville, Florida.

From that stunning set by Row Jomah, we jetted back to hear Anthill Cinema, who had a brilliant set at Suwannee Rising and were bringing those vibes back home. By this point, we were going to need permanent jaw support. If you’ve seen them before, then you know. These guys are ridiculous: JR Williams; Yral ‘datdudeondrums’ Morris; Cody Moore, keyboards, alto sax; Matt Mayu, keyboards, vocals; Vinny Svoboda, bass; Jason Hobert, guitar; and Justino Lee Walker, guitar, vocals.
Do they play prog? Jazz? Pop? Rock? Funk? Jam? Psychedelia? Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes, they do, brilliantly. After a truly monster set, they bounced through Walker’s “Pop Song,” twisting and turning from second to second.
