(Lake Placid, NY) -- moe. will host Snoe.down March 17-19, 2006. This event, which kicks off the week long Adirondack Almost Springfest celebration, will take place at the famed Olympic Center in Lake Placid, NY, home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics, and at nearby Whiteface.
moe. has added The Everyone Orchestra to the Snoe.down line-up. Everyone Orchestra founder Matt Butler will conduct this version of the Orchestra featuring Phish's Jon Fishman, Jazz Mandolin Project's Jamie Masefield, Steve Kimock, Peter Apfelbaum, and Samantha Stollenwerck.
Everyone Orchestra performances are known for their engagement of the audience in the jam as the conductor directs both musicians and audience alike: "EO is a much more direct synthesis of a band and audience relationship," says one participant. "The audience is not just there to see you, but to PLAY with you."
moe. is proud to introduce James Hunter, whom Van Morrison calls "one of the best voices, and best kept secrets, in British R&B and Soul."
Chuch, Woodenspoon, and U-Melt were also added.
Previously announced artists including Soulive, Assembly of Dust, Tea Leaf Green, and of course, moe. will perform throughout the weekend. For a complete line-up visit www.snoedown.com.
