The Mayor of Funk City, Mr. Jake Funkmayor (FunkCity.net), took his trusty video camera to Suwannee Hulaween and recorded… A LOT! We are excited to share his videos along with photos from MusicFestNews photographer John Strojny (Silent J Studios). Thanks, gentlemen!
Roosevelt Collier Band had the last word. Collier often mixes up open jams, Hendrix tunes, and more. This time, he had Blaque Dynamite on drums, Tommy Shugart on keyboards, and two of the boys from Electric Kif: Rodrigo Zambrano on bass and Jason Matthews on keyboards. Zambrano and Matthews helped steer Collier into Herbie Hancock’s “Hang Up Your Hang Ups” to open the set and Miles Davis’ “It’s About That Time” (with Hancock) to close it. Levine was there to introduce Collier, who is such a gift to Florida and to all of us.
