DRUM BOOGIE 2013 is a Booming Success, Again!
I don’t have to tell anyone who attended the festival this time what a complete gas it was. Many thousands of people showed up for a picture perfect day of amazing performances, food and fun. The day started in the artist’s cemetery in Woodstock, NY for a memorial tribute to the late great xylophonist / composer George Hamilton Green. Green family members attended along with a large crowd of G.H. Green fans. From the opening ceremony of Jack DeJohnette reading a poem of peace with improvised accompaniment to the closing act of Levon Helm Studio’s Midnight Ramble Band kicking off their set with Gene Krupa’s 1941 Drum Boogie tune, we were all captivated and moved by an enormous variety and super high quality of music, dance and song.
