Presenting “The Laid Back Festival”

I held back on this one when I first learned about it but now with the full lineup roster for the festival being announced and tickets on sale in the coming days I figured it was high time to post something. This one is a creation of the legendary Gregg Allman and called “The Laid Back Festival – A Celebration Of Music And Food” – Dig it.

“We’re excited to announce the FULL LINEUP ‪#‎LaidBackFest‬ at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater on Saturday, July 23rd! Gregg Allman, Jason Isbell, America, The Marshall Tucker Band, Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band, Devon Allman, Gabriel Kelley, and Levon! On Sale Friday at 12pm”

Here’s the poster for the NY Region show. It’s going to be at the Nikon at Jones Beach theater which is cool since there is a small beach right there that allows for some additional fun provided the weather is nice enough.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So what do you think about this one? Are any of the bands of interest to you? I know that I enjoy the stuff that Allman does and it would be nice to see both America and the Marshall Tucker Band at least once in my life. I’d also surely be interested in the food its supposed to be celebrating. It makes me think of the Food Truck and Rock Carnival that came through town last year. I barely got to sample the food truck stuff which sucked. I was ravenous by the end of the day thanks to that. If I go to this one, I am digging in for both sustenance and for the Foodspotting Account. Let me know what you think of this one in the comments section as always.

Gregg Allman & More @ Nikon at Jones Beach Theater

Gregg Allman will be joined by Doobie Brothers, City of the Sun, Bruce Hornsby and the Noisemakers and Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band for the “Laid Back Festival”. Based on the number of acts this event will start earlier than most others.
