well i'm jealous... and poohbear19, to each his own, but you won't find me on a nude waterslide, unless it were my own personal nude waterslide in my own bakyard... don't they have rules about sitting on towels at nude resorts? how could they implement that on a waterslide? lol

Coming from a Jamaican family, I must say that it really warms my heart to see such a dope scene happening on my beloved island. Whenever I go down there, my musical experience is close to 100% reggae, which I have zero complaints about, but to be able to see some of my favorite jammys would be really out of control. (Sigh)...one day.

I used to get down to some Umph, and this looked like a lot of fun, but Stasic is the worst. First of, he holds down the low end in a boring, generic style while Bayliss and Cinniger shred circles around him. Secondly, he is an asshole. and lastly, he wears stupid V-necks

Can't really defend the V-Necks but Stasik is good people. All of Umph, including the Wilbiest Wade, are good people.

besides, they went to school under the watchful eye of 'Touchdown Jesus', the v-Neck should be no surprise.

also, glad there was no words to accompany this. Would have just been a half-hearted attempt at proving to peeps the writer partied all weekend, grabbed some last-minute setlists and read thesaurus entries for "music, jam and experimental" on the plane ride home.

great pics Dave!

Stasik is probably a cat i could chill with, he just had a crappy vibe eminating around him the few times i met the Umph fellas, but that was in 04 and 05. Bayliss is one cool dude though, whenever they play Cincy you can expect him to come out to after shows put on by local musicians and kick it with everyone. On a side note, kudos to Joel Cummins, your future wife is SMOKIN hot!

Rockin' the green body sock at Hedonism... Looks like a ton of fun! Might have to check this out next year if it happens. The fan to musician ratio must only be like 10 to 1.

Definitely the most amazing band-fan experience. I had an amazing time, I met even more amazing people, had fun catching up with old ones, and enjoyed every set of music. The only thing I was salty about was missing my alarm for the golf tourney. And as far as the herb, if you prioritize it, you will find what you are looking for. By the end of the fest, I just realized how much of a placebo all of the ridiculously huge spliffs (Kenny Loggins) were. Just put it this way, it could be worse. I just don't understand all of the hate. Even while we were on the beach, people were talking shit about UM. Granted, to each their own, but keep it to yourself. Your in paradise and it wouldn't have been possible with out the both of these bands. Once again I will give thanks to both organizations (tDB and UM), Cloud 9/ConsideritDan, and all of the other people and bands involved that make events like this possible. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to meet all of these amazing people and enabling all of us to share in your grooves. I will be be back in 09. Mark my words. Peace and Love.

PS-Kudos to Dave Vann for always being on top of things. I always look forward to your shots.

GOSEELIVEMUSIC!
