SCamp13 Saturday began on a high note... or should I say low note, with a rockin' bass workshop with Artist At Large, Victor Wooten and Reed Mathis. The day before, I got to hear Victor sit in with Keller Williams & Dumpstaphunk! He was all over SCamp.
Their answer? "Quit using the size of your hands as an excuse and get out there and play!"
I ducked out briefly in the rain to see one of our Chicago favs, Henhouse Prowlers. Despite the damp drizzle, they had a huge turnout. Everyone was dancing in the mud, singing along and having a stellar time. I LOVED the visual of the lady who brought two large Mason jars of hot chicken soup and passed them around to her friends as hand warmers before they shared the soup. True down home comfort! It was a stellar way to spend a rainy Saturday.
All of my friends (except two) rode the rail (front row) & stuck it out for 2 sets of Umphrey's McGhee in the cold, heavy rains that came right on the heels of KDTU. They were prepared with ponchos.
