NYE with the 7 Walkers -- WOW! If you were on the East Coast and missed this show you definitely missed THE SHOW!!! As the opening notes rung out through the Silo, the lights began to tease the most amazing tie dyed tapestries in the world, you could easily tell that this was going to be one extraordinary, mind bending evening dripping with wide open extended jams with enough room for, well, whatever they had in store for us. With all parts moving together as one the audience was taken on a journey to the places in between and delivered gingerly back home… the only problem (if you could call it a problem) was that with each revolution the audience stood at the ready for the band to go deeper, further and back round again! True to form, the 7 Walkers continued to gracefully oblige with their hallowed swampadelic barrage of wonder. Their interpretations of Dead classics were woven seamlessly together with newly penned tunes and other traditional songs in a style and sound that undoubtedly belongs exclusively to the 7 Walkers... To add more fuel to the fire, Steve Kimock sat in for the entire second set, now that’s Southern Hospitality!
If you did miss it, don't fret – it seems 7 Walkers is just getting started… They were announced as the headliner for Bears Picnic this Summer in PA – you should be marking your calendars!
