Louisville rockers My Morning Jacket played what is expected to be the band’s final show of 2016 last night at the Suwannee Hulaween music festival in Live Oak, Florida. MMJ brought the action at Hulaween’s The Meadow stage to a close following two sets of The String Cheese Incident and performances from Greensky Bluegrass, Russo, Benevento & Burbridge and Kaleigh Baker & The Groove Orient. Jim James & Co. delivered plenty of fan favorite originals as well as a few choice covers.
My Morning Jacket opened their 18-song Hulaween performance with “Wordless Chorus” ahead of “Compound Fracture,” one of three songs from 2015’s The Waterfall they would play. The set focused squarely on tunes from the band’s five most recent LPs as there was nothing played from At Dawn and The Tennessee Fire. “Rocket Man” by Elton John was the first cover of a set that also featured takes on “Easy” by The Commodores and “Another Brick In The Wall” by Pink Floyd. “Another Brick In The Wall” was the third Pink Floyd cover debuted by MMJ in as many nights. It was followed by a “One Big Holiday” that brought the year to a close for My Morning Jacket.
Suwannee Hulaween continues today with three sets from SCI and much more. Tune in to SiriusXM’s Jam ON channel to hear the action live from the festival.
