The Peach Music Festival Kicks Into The Weekend With Tributes From SCI, Les Brers, & Moe. [Gallery]

first_imgThe Peach Music Festival is in full-swing for its 5th annual celebration at Montage Mountain in Scranton, PA. With Dark Star Orchestra, Electron, Dopapod, and Cabinet kicking things off on Thursday evening, the site got serious on Friday for its first full day and night of continuous music. Complete with water slides, a lazy river, wave pool, and zipline adventures, Montage Mountain proves one of the best grounds to occupy on a hot summer’s day.The Peach’s lineup has been impressive since the start, but when Gregg Allman Band and “The Gregg Allman Incident” were cancelled due to the singer/songwriter being hospitalized with serious health issues, people were left scratching their heads and wondering how such novel acts could ever be replaced. Luckily, Les Brers was also billed to play the festival, featuring plenty of blood-members of the Allman Brothers Band, who were able to join in on The String Cheese Incident-led ABB tribute, billed “The Allman Brothers’ Family Incident” (more about that here).Beloved jam band moe. gave fans two glorious sets of live music. The first set was a more traditional moe. celebration, full of their classic tunes, it was the second, late-night set that is sure to have people talking, as the band performed a full tribute set to the great Pink Floyd (full video here).In addition to theses historical acts, came original performances from The String Cheese Incident, Les Brers, Toots & The Maytals, along with The Motet, The Werks, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, a very special set from The Floozies w/ Jason Hann, and so many more.The Peach Fest continues today with Trey Anastasio Band, Umphrey’s McGee, The Claypool Lennon Delirium, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, and many more. Stay tuned!Check out the full gallery from Friday’s celebration, courtesy of Faces of Festivals: Load remaining imageslast_img
