Irene Isn't Stopping The Killington Hay Festival

Killington’s giant hay sculptures are ready for their closeups.

The 4th annual Killington Hay Festival with its signature “Grass Menagerie” officially kicks off this weekend despite Mother Nature’s attempt to dampen the popular fall attraction.  The Killington Hay Festival is a celebration of the Vermont harvest built around a collection of giant hay animal sculptures displayed throughout town.

Plans for a Labor Day start to the festival came to a halt when flooding from Tropical Storm Irene hitVermontand the Killington region hard, causing road closures into and out of town, and threatening whether the Hay Festival would even take place.  But due to extreme volunteerism and the ‘can-do’ attitude of Vermonters, then Route 4 through Central Vermont reopened a few days ago, and plans immediately resumed.

Although recovery efforts caused some events to be postponed until next year, a shortened Hay Festival encompassing three of the biggest fall foliage weekends will go on as planned.  The condensed three-week festival still features multiple events and activities including a scavenger hunt, a handcrafted hay maze, a specialty Hay Festival Ale by Long Trail Brewery, Killington Resort’s Brewfest Weekend, and The DockDogs National Championships.  The Hay Festival also announced a partnership with Boston’s Franklin Park Zoo, where a giant hay sculpture of a baby red panda will promote the Killington Hay Festival during the month of October.

The Killington Hay Festival’s Grass Menagerie displays, scavenger hunt and hay maze continue through October 10.  Maps are available at Hay Festival Headquarters, located at the Gristmill Restaurant on the Killington Road.  Additional information on the Hay Festival and other events is available online at DiscoverKillington.com.

DockDogs® National Championships Come To Killington

They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. But that’s not true in Killington, VT, where dogs of every age will compete on October 7 – 9, 2011 to see which canine athlete has the best tricks in the country!

The Town of Killington and organizers of the DockDogs® National Championships are pleased to accound that the event scheduled for October 7 – 9 at the Snowshed Base Area at Killington Resort will go on as planned this autumn.  The three-day competition is one event to continue from the Killington Hay Festival’s long calendar of special events, which has been condensed from five weeks to three weeks due to the historic and devastating flood damage caused by Tropical Storm Irene.  The DockDogs® event is expected to bring in over 300 of the most experienced teams from all parts of the country—and their fans—to compete for the National Championship within their divisions.

DockDogs Championships - Killington, VT - October 9 - 11, 2011

“We are so pleased that this event will go on as planned and appreciate the outpouring of support for the Town,” says Suzie Dundas of the Office of Economic Development and Tourism.  “This is a tremendous opportunity to provide quality family entertainment for locals and visitors alike during the absolute peak of fall color and foliage.”

DockDogs®, as seen on ABC, ESPN and the Outdoor Channel, feature distance jumping and retrieving competitions from the world’s best canine athletes.  At speeds over 20 mph, guests will see Big Air dogs catapult off the end of a 50-foot dock into a 40-foot pool to retrieve a floatable object.  Jump distances are measured from the end of the dock to where the base of the dog’s tail breaks the water.

“This sport is just so much fun for both the handlers and their dogs,” says Grant Reeves, DockDogs® CEO.  “It’s an ear-to-ear grin sport for competitors and a wildly popular spectator sport.”

The DockDogs® National Championships will take place during the final weekend of the award-winning Killington Hay Festival, a celebration of the Vermont harvest that normally runs from Labor Day to Columbus Day.  This year’s festival unofficially kicked-off on September 16th with the re-opening of Route 4 in Mendon; which had been closed since August 28th.  The centerpiece of the festival is the show-stopping Grass Menagerie – a collection of more than 30 gigantic animal sculptures made entirely of hay.  Additional activities and events include a scavenger hunt, hay maze, Killington Resort’s annual Brewfest weekend, and endless outdoor recreational offerings.

About DockDogs®—DockDogs®is the independent governing and sanctioning body for Regional, National and International Dock jumping performance sports. DockDogs® establishes the rules and standards of the sport, tracks results and records and supports and promotes the growth of its athletes, events, spectators, and sponsors. For additional information visit www.dockdogs.com.

The DockDogs® National Championships competition is open to teams that hold a valid 2011 DockDogs® Worldwide member, have a National or Regional DockDogs® title, and have attended at least one National or Regional DockDogs® event this season.  Registration for this event is currently open via fax.  Spectators are welcome, and there is no admission charge.  Additionally, there will be one hour set aside each day for locals and first-timers to test their dock-diving skills as a part of a fund raiser for the B.A.A.R.K. Foundation.  The registration fee is $5 per team and amateur teams can register onsite at the event.

The Town Of Killington offers a wide range of pet-friendly lodging options for both competitors and spectators, including condos that can accommodate an entire team or club.  For more information and a complete list of lodging options visit DiscoverKillington.com, or visit DockDogs.com to register and compete!

Interview: Bow Thayer - Part 2

Here it comes again…Tweed River Music Festival #3. TRMF3 kicks off this Friday 12 August and runs through Sunday 14 August, 2011. Grab the kids and the camping gear and head for Stockbridge Vermont. The forecast is happiness for as far as the eye can see.

Here’s the link to Interview: Bow Thayer – Part 1 in case you missed it.

Also, when I spoke with Bow this morning he mentioned that this year’s TRMF is being filmed and will eventually be released as a documentary. Not only will there be great music and get times but this is also your chance to be a part of history.

Mark @ KYR—Let’s jump back to Tweed. The festival’s line up is coherent yet eclectic. It seems more orientated to creating a vibe than focusing on a particular type of music. How does something like that come together? Do you start with a core list and then add as you go? More fluid? Less?
Bow Thayer—Yes, it is a very eclectic line up. We focus on creating a positive vibe. We want people to hear music they are not normally exposed to and we encourage having an open ear. Most of the bands have some connection in some way or another to Perfect Trainwreck: by sharing bills, being in other bands together, producing records or just jamming from time to time. It really is a musical community in itself. But we also look for other bands we have never experienced to increase the reach of the loop.

Bow Thayer and Perfect Trainwreck

KYR—I’m not going to put you on the spot and ask you to pick favorites. But who are your three underdogs for this year’s festival? Who’s going to leave the masses thinking they missed something special? Who’s going to solidify their position as a must return for 2012?
BT—If you look at past years line-ups you will see we do have some favorites. Tim Gerean, Roadsaw, Rick Redington, etc…I have no idea who three underdogs will be. You will have to come to the fest and see for yourself. Then again one group may be a hero to some and a horror to another. That is just what happens when you introduce such diversity. It’s also why we ask folks to be open and realize it’s about the whole moment and not so much how they feel about this music or that.

KYR—Once TRMF3 is done, what’s coming up for Bow Thayer and Perfect Trainwreck? Up coming gigs? Maybe a new album? Or even just a couple new songs?
BT—After the Fest we will just keep plugging along. We are doing a show in Pomfret (PentangleArts.org)  with our good friend Levon Helm later in August. I have nearly completed writing and making demos for the follow-up album to “Bottom of the Sky” so I hope to keep busy with recording and hopefully more touring.

BowThayer.com
TweedRiverMusicFestival.com/Tickets

KYR—Before I take too much of your time, tell us about your recording studio “The Woodshed”.
BT—Man, that is a question that could fill a book. I started it over 10 years ago, now it’s finally done and ready to be worked in. What’s amazing is that 100% of the materials used to build “The Woodshed” came from salvage or other second hand sources—even dumpsters made contributions. We’ve actually done some recording with a local guy named Spencer Lewis (SpencerLewisMusic.com). Do look out for that. Naturally, Perfect Trainwreck is available if someone needs musicians. Anyone who’s interested in coming up and recording at the “Woodshed” can contact me through my website. The welcome mat is out and we’ll even leave the light on. Just come and get it.

KYR—The stage is yours Bow…please send out some love.
BT—Thanks to my wife Lori, as well as Rob McFadden and his wife Lindsay. Jeremy Curtis my business partner for the festival. Our sound guy Tim Mikovitz deserves some love too. I’d like to thank all the volunteers who are making this thing work, as well as the town of Stockbridge. I also need to give special thanks to all the artist who signed on with TRMF this year. It’s everyone’s participation that makes this event what it is. Please come out and join us. I hope to see ya there.

Interview: Bow Thayer - Part 1

Hopefully you already have your bags packed and your tickets ready for the third annual Tweed River Music Festival in Stockbridge (VT) on August 12-14, 2011.

If you do, you’re golden. You’re going to enjoy this (via email) interview with local host Bow Thayer of Bow Thayer and Perfect Trainwreck fame. And for those of you still on the bubble, this exchange with Bow should inspire you to get your butt in gear.

Mark @ KYR—They say good things come in threes. This is the third annual Tweed River Music Festival. Congratulations! Give us some history on life before TRMF. What gave birth to it? Why have you kept pursuing it? What is going to make #3 the best one yet? And since it’s just a year away, what’s up with #4?
Bow Thayer—The festival had very humble beginnings, it actually started as a party on my deck with a bunch of musicians just sitting around pickin’. Then it started to be annual. And then it got bigger and moved to different locations that had more room, after several years of taxing our friends and neighbors lands we noticed that people were showing up whom we didn’t know, so we decided to go public.

The spot at the junction of 100 and 107 was perfect because it is right down the road from my house and very accessible for the public. We feel that although it is an insane amount of work it is important to have folks gather and experience a very diverse lineup of musicians. We also want to involve our community and generate some income for the local businesses. We are doing a “boot drop” for the fire department as well as having lots of kids activities, local artists will also be represented. We want to keep this going in a very positive way that will continue to benefit the area.

However, we do not want to grow in size, we want to keep attendance at a level that does not impede on any of the natural beauty of our area or interfere with our neighbors way of life. We do want to increase the quality of the event by continuing to bring independent, as well as legendary performers to the stage. As you know, this year we have Booker T Jones (of Booker T & The MGs), as well as offer a platform for education on important issues such as the environment, education…as we expose folks to art. We hope this in turn will inspire people to express themselves, which is always a healthy thing to do. We hope the Tweed River Music Festival will go down in local history. We will continue to do it as long as the town and state allow us to.

Bow Thayer and-Perfect Trainwreck (Tweed River Music Festival :: Stockbridge, VT)

KYR—Amen Bow! I’m curious…I poked around on your site a bit and couldn’t find the answer. Perfect Trainwreck? Please elaborate a bit.
BT—A Trainwreck is a metaphor for a blunder or mistake during a live performance, sometimes a band will make a collective screw up but it turns into something really cool. Our band has very little or no rehearsal time so we rely on our musical language with each other. Therefore we relish in these Trainwreck…well sometimes.

KYR—I hope you don’t mind me saying so but “Bottom of The Sky” seems rooted in influences from the late 60s though mid to late 70s. Great times for rock music indeed. For me, I heard elements of Tom Petty, Bob Dylan and even the Allman Brothers Band. All great company. That being said, who and/or what are some of your influence that people would be surprised to hear play a role in your artistic DNA?
BT—All of the above artist definitely had a profound influence on my writing, so it is not surprising you hear those elements. I am inspired by all music I hear, I don’t have a big record collection or anything that I go and draw from but if I hear something I like I try and take something from it. If you go back through my catalogue you will hear influences from Sun Ra, Fugazi, Joni Mitchell, Ali Farka Toure’, Django Reinhart…the list is infinite and is basically everything I hear, see or experience.

KYR—Maybe you can help me? What’s in the water in Central Vermont that makes creative juices so creative? With people such as yourself, Rick Redington, etc. It’s hard to imagine so much coming from so small an area of such a sparsely populated state. What’s your theory?
BT—I moved up here about 13 years ago to be in an inspiring place to write, and also to raise a family. The place speaks to me as I am sure it does to other creative folks. Rick is a local boy that happens to be a fine musician and I am sure his roots here influence his writing. Vermont is weird and wonderful and really does get creative juices flowing. But I think wherever you go you will find people connected to their environment that express immense talent.

Bow Thayer :: Tweed River Music Festival :: Stockbridge, VT

Alright folks, that’s it for now. We’ll be following up with Part 2 in the next week. When you get a moment please check out BowThayer.com for all things Bow Thayer and Perfect Trainwreck.

By the way, if you haven’t taken the time to check the lineup for TRMF3 then you need to know that Killington’s number one son Rick Redington (along with his uber-fresh musical mischief makers The Luv) will be playing Sunday 14 August.

Stockbridge VT Hosts the Tweed River Music Festival

Tweed River Music Festival :: Stockbridge Vermont :: August 12 - 14, 2011If you believe that it’s good to be a kind and thoughtful neighbor then you’ll appreciate KYR soapboxing for the third annual Tweed River Music Festival in Stockbridge Vermont on August 12 – 14,  2011.

The list of confirmed performers is once again impressive. TRMF will feature performances from the Grammy award winning Booker T. Jones (of Booker T. & The MG’s fame); singer-songwriter extraordinaires Jeffrey Foucault, Peter Mulvey and Tim Gearan; heavy rock vets Roadsaw as well as up and comers Mellow Bravo—and of course, and more. With the stage being backdropped by the immaculate Green Mountains this going to be three days of music, fun and camping for everyone. It is a family friendly festival.

TRMF website :: TweedRiverMusicFestival.com

Ideally we’ll be jamming in an interview with Bow Thayer (BowThayer.com) between now and 12 August.

“I’m really looking forward to playing Tweed River this year and helping my good, good friend and bass player Jeremy Curtis out! This will be my only East Coast show this summer and I can’t think of a more beautiful setting than in the state of Vermont. The Tweed River Festival promoters have worked hard to bring the festival to where it is and I am glad to help support Tweed River as the very notable music festival that it has become.”

—Booker T. Jones

By the way, this is also the weekend for Circus Smirkus at Pico (Sunday), the Gravity East Downhill Mountain Bike Competition at Killington Resort (Saturday), as well as Twiddle performing Saturday afternoon at the free “Cooler in the Mountains” summer concern series which is presented by Long Trail and also at Killington Resort. The famous 100 on 100 is also that weekend.

The point is, it’s going to be August and the ideal weekend for that mini-vacation in central Vermont that you’ve been promising yourself.

The Official Launch of VT802.us

VT802.us—The World’s First Vermont-centric URL Shortener

Killington, VT – Killington Year Round (KYR, http://KillingtonYearRound.com) announces the official public beta launch of its initial sibling website VT802.us (http://VT802.us). VT802.us is the world’s first Vermont-centric URL shortener. It also offers capabilities for quick and easy sharing to social media websites.

“Move over bit.ly. Step aside TinyURL.com. Here comes VT802.us. A free web based service that is soon to be the pride and joy of the Green Mountain State,” said Mark Simchock, founder and Ring Leader of Killington Year Round, with a proud but playful grin on his face. Mark is also the visionary force behind VT802.us.

VT802.us is based on the open source software of YOURLS (Your Own URL Shortener, http://YOURLS.org). With that foundation of programming code in place, VT802.us adds a number of innovations and Vermont-centric touches. These highlights include:

VT802.us - The world's first Vermont-centric URL shortener.—Once a URL is shoterned it can be easily emailed or shared to any social media platform supported by AddThis (http://AddThis.com). Currently, AddThis has 350 options including Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Digg and plenty of others.

—Prior to shortening the user can enter a single short message that will be available for sharing via AddThis. In other words, one shortening+message can yield many social media shares with minimal effort.

—VT802.us’ main background image will feature sights from around Vermont as taken by Vermont photographers. Interested photographers are asked to use the contact form on the VT802.us website. Look for the letter/envelope icon in the upper right hand corner.

—VT802.us is able to re-shorten already shortened URLs. For example, submit a bit.ly URL and VT802.us will unshorten it, then re-shorten it and return a VT802.us based URL. bit.ly does not re-shorten shortened URLs.

In the age of brevity, size still matters. And in keeping with the times, VT802.us is doing more with less. As a result of VT802.us’ hard work Vermonters and pro-Vermonters have a URL shortening option that is not generic (e.g., bit.ly). That option is VT802.us—The world’s first Vermont-centric URL shortener. VT802.us makes it simple and easy to subtly promote the Green Mountain State in the digital age.  Try it here: http://VT802.us.

Mark Simchock—For convenience there are contact forms on both VT802.us and KillingtonYearRound.com.

About Killington Year Round

Killington Year Round (KYR, KillingtonYearRound.com) is an Internet based communications platform architected to enable and enhance the conversation between community content creators (i.e., local businesses and organizations) and interested content consumers (i.e., The Public).

More than just a website, KYR is a philosophy based on inclusiveness and transparency. KYR believes that community is best defined holistically, and that participation is driven by the availability and consumability of information. The broader and more complete the picture the better. Killington and Central Vermont have a lot to offer and KYR’s mission is to making sharing any relevant content as easy as possible via the KYR website, social media as well as traditional media.

What is a URL shortener?

With the explosion of SMS based messaging and social media websites (e.g., Twitter), the sharing of full length URL is often nearly impossible. A URL shortening website takes a submitted full length URL and shortens it by replacing the URL with what is essentially a unique code. While that code might not be plain English, it is shorter. When the shorter URL is used the traffic comes to the shortener site, the code is interpreted and traffic is quickly redirected to the original full length URL.

Snoe.down throw down: Getting lost in the jam

Note: This article was originally published in the Rutland County Express on 31 March 2011. It is used with permission.

Another Snoe.down has come and gone. For a brief moment again this year, Rutland was the center of the jamband universe. For three days, moe. held court at Spartan Arena and in Killington, bringing with them a nation of rabid but respectful fans, affectionately referred to as “moe.rons.”

While the official numbers have not been released, ticket sales going into the weekend were on par with 2010, which means the weekend likely drew around 5,000 people to the area. (Huzzah, for Rutland.)

Jambands have a complicated and uneasy position in the larger music world. Despite counting some of the most talented and proficient musicians in the world among its ranks, the genre has never been able to fully shake its hippie roots.

Snoe.down 2011:: moe. :: Rutland and Killington Vermont

Those roots, of course can be traced back to the founding fathers of the jamband scene, the Grateful Dead, whose psychedelic readings of traditional rock, country and Americana in the 1960s cast a long shadow. (Though, one could successfully argue that the origins of jambands lie in jazz, especially, the form-defying sub-genre of bebop exemplified by the likes of Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker and Miles Davis.)

For the uninitiated, jam-band” is the too-broad term ascribed to bands whose music is heavily improvisational and, often, spontaneous — though, the latter suggests that these musicians are making it up as they go along, which while being true on one level is wholly inaccurate on another.

I say “too-broad” because it is often lazily used by critics outside the scene as a catchall for any band that places instrumental arrangements and improvisation over lyrical deftness, catchy hooks and commercial success.

There is also a tendency to use the term “indie” in a similarly erroneous shorthand to vaguely describe both the independent music world’s sound and a scene. (This tendency, I suppose, comes from our societal infatuation with pigeonholing things into easily understandable categories.)

In a recent inter view with moe. guitarist Al Schnier, we talked about the jamband scene and its frequent lack of love from the broader music world. We joked that, despite the scene’s heavy concentration of first-class talent, there is still a tendency for “hipper” pockets of the industry to look down their noses.

The uber-hipster music criticism website Pitchfork is a prime example of such elitism. Bands like Radiohead, Animal Collective and Yo La Tengo are critical darlings in the indie world, but despite all three being improvisational heavyweights in their live shows, they are not qualified as jambands.

This phenomenon makes Schnier laugh…

Saturday at BMMC 2011

If there was a song of the day it was the Clash’s “Should I Stay or Should I Go” with a slight difference of course. On lead vocals the mighty Mick Jones was replaced by Old Man Winter, and on backing vocals the one and only Joe Strummer—God bless his soul— was replaced by Mother Nature. It was obvious OMW couldn’t make up his mind. From mischievous snow squalls, to spit in your eye blue skies and back again…and again. Saturday afternoon’s weather playlist was conflicted and rebellious. Yes, it was still fun too.

It’s certainly no secret that there’s been a change in the direction of the BMMC since the resort’s new ownership took over. In many many, this is understandable. In recent years the reverie of the BMMC crowd had occasionally been getting a bit over the top. Regardless, every new king is entitled to clean house and set a new direction for his kingdom. It’s the nature of power changing hands. There’s no sense fighting history or capitalism.

However, there is also plenty of grumbling about King Nyberg & his court and the lack of new traditions to replace the old traditions they’ve purposefully eliminated. Specifically with regards to BMMC there’s an awkward irony in wanting to curtail drinking and then land a sponsor that peddles alcohol. Or is the new tradition BMMC souvenir pint glasses—again, alcohol oriented—for a whopping ten bucks a pop? Hummmm, really? That’s where we’re headed?

And then there’s the contributing issue of the established marketing identity, The Beast. Sure it’s catchy and cute. However, this going back to the future monicker also sets certain expectations, does it not? The Beast of the East was more than just a slogan. So it’s no wonder so many continue to be “confused.” The Beast they know and love doesn’t seem to exist any more. It’s perfectly reasonable for them to ask, “Where was The Beast this past weekend?” King Nyberg, we welcome the new prosperity you promise. On the other hand, do your people have to be deceived and denied so much to get there?

Now before ya all get your fleece glove liners all up in bunch, let the record show that these are not criticisms coming directly from the mouth of the KYR messenger. They are simply mirroring the chatter in the gondolas, on the chairs, down the access road, and beyond. Relax, these are objective observations, not subjective editorial. There is plenty of positive passion that has solidified over the years, regardless of who owned the hill. Is there no way to harness that power to the benefit of the entire area? Lead us dear king, that’s all that we ask for.

Let’s hope that next year there will be  improved clarity in message and direction that leads to an upward swing in attendees and new passions. More quality photo ops are always a good thing. More smiling faces please. Dear king? Please?

Get to know Myk Sno

Ahhh yeah, Myk Sno. Simply thinking those two words puts the mind at ease. Have you been lucky enough to catch him at Santa Fe Steakhouse or Outback Pizza? Whether solo or with K-Town’s Finest (which includes Myk’s son Jordan), Myk’s appreciation for soulful grooves and old school aesthetics is life-is-good entertainment at its best. When in Killington Myk leans towards playing it safe and sticks mostly to covers. But occasionally he drops his guard and shares one of his original compositions. No matter how it goes down, Myk makes it happen.

His cordial approach is the ideal third course after a day of snow and an evening meal. So without further ado, here’s our via-email interview with Myk.

Mark @ KYR—Fill us in a bit…Talk about Myk Sno prior to becoming part of Killington history.
Myk Sno—I am an established European artist/musician who has spent almost half my life living and performing in Europe. I’ve played in Paris, London, Barcelona, also South Africa for the World Cup. And I’ve performed with such greats as The Platters, James Brown, Joe, Usher, R. Kelly, Genuwine, and Mariah Carey.

KYR—Ok, what brought you to Killington? What got you to stay? And what keeps you coming back?
MS—I love it here. But the truth is, the Killington area is where my son lives and that is the main reason I keep coming back. My touring keeps me in Germany but I come back many times throughout the year every year. During my many times here I had the chance to meet a number of local musicians and hit the stage with them periodically. Eventually an opportunity opened up for me to grab the gig at Santa Fe last winter. I am fortunate to have been asked to return again this season. I have met plenty of wonderful people here and enjoy coming back to the friends I have made and continue to make! I’m looking forward to next season as well.

KYR—Who are your musical and non-musical influences?
MS—Sam Cooke, James Taylor, Prince and Sammy Davis Jr. to name a few. I have mostly an R&B background but love to play all types of music. I also enjoy artist like Amos Lee, James Taylor, Bob Marley, James Hunter, Stevie Wonder. I have been expanding my repertoire to add in Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, and even Jimmy Buffet.

KYR—And non-musical influences?
MS—
As for off-stage influences, my father and mother, Henderson and Betty Jacobs, Martin Luther King, and John F. Kennedy  simply because they each believed in the freedom of an individual’s right to express themselves, be themselves, and most importantly to believe in themselves.

KYR—You write your own music but you also play covers, right? How does the artist in you feel about that?
MS—I prefer to perform my own music and compositions, but I also love singing the great music composed by a lot of the artists out there. Since many of them have inspired me, I see it as a form of respect to the artist when I perform covers. Sometimes I even play my son’s songs. Jordan is also a great song writer. Obviously, that doesn’t bother me at all.

KYR—What do you do in the off-season?
MS—
Killington’s off-season is prime time for me in Europe. When I leave Killington I head right back to my European gigs and touring. The day I return, I have a show with my duo Acoustik Soul. This year I will  start my tour with my group Genuine Men. If you read German, we can be found at www.GenuineMen.de.

KYR—What’s next for Myk Sno? What should we be looking for between now and say next November?
MS—The completion and release of my next album with my band Acoustik Soul. Most of the songs are ready, just a little more work needs to be done.

KYR—How about sending out some love?
MS—Lol…I would like to send some love to all my fans all over the world and the people here in Killington for enjoying my music and supporting me. Also my musician colleagues in Europe and Killington who have been such a great experience to meet and work with. Most of all my family for believing in me and appreciating my art. And of course, my son Jordan who is finishing up his Junior year at Berklee College of Music.

KYR—Thanks Myk. Anything else?
MS—
You can find me on MySpace (MySpace.com/AcoustikSoul) and on YouTube (YouTube.com/user/AcoustikSoul1). My CD can be purchased at my shows and online on iTunes and Amazon.

Snoe.down 2011 :: Saturday Afternoon at Bear Mtn with moe.

When a big dog like moe. rolls in to town it makes sense to sit up and pay attention. With that context in mind, KYR followed the theme of the afternoon (i.e., free moe.) and focused the day’s shooting on “crowd appreciation.” Basically, you’ll see few band shots in this set. Sorry ’bout that. The good news is, what you will get is to replay the remnants of one massively memorable afternoon.

Also, kudos to Kash & Krew for the BBQ grilled pizza, the PBRs, the spicy hot goodness of Kash’s Red Beard Habanero Mustard, and the wicked white carpet hospitality. Apparently the spirit of appreciation was unavoidable.

Snoe.down 2011 :: moe. Live :: Spartan Arena (Saturday)

It has been said that there’s a thin line between love and hate. And that same tipping point can be applied to creative brilliance and (for lack of a better term this morning) pure crap. Not to worry, this isn’t a twisted lead-in to the finale of moe.’s prolific weekend. There’s no point trying to debate life’s absolute highs such as moe.

On the other hand, the experience of this round of images might cause a bit of a stir in some. Are these shots fuzz and warm in an impressionistic sorta way? Do the thick and hazy saturated colors accurately reflect what was on the stage and in your head? Is it the next best thing to being there, or a visual bastardization worthy of Saturday afternoon’s port-a-potties? Are you just one yawn and click away from taking a nap? Or maybe the foggy feel inspires you to turn up the music, lean back in your chair, and think, “Oh yeah…”?

One special request, please. Don’t judge the individual shots. Instead, absorb the feelings from the entire end to end moment. This isn’t about a single “product”. The KYR slideshows are about an experience—and often a collective one at that—best viewed in full-screen mode.

So now the question is, how do like us now?

Snoe.down 2011 :: moe. Live :: Spartan Arena (Friday)

The boys. are back in town. Needless to say they didn’t come to the party empty-handed. No matter where the eye turned there were fistfuls of friendliness, as well as festive faces poised atop of swaying bodies. The vibe was completely intoxicating, and occasionally the air was too.

Enough chatter. This set of images aims to capture the full range of thrills and Magic Hat spills of the moment. Queue up some moe., hit the play buttons, jump to full-screen light speed and turn up the volume.

Please watch & listen responsibly.

Apologies to opening act Keller Williams. There was an initial delay in getting press/photo-pit credentials sorted out. As a result Mr. Williams didn’t get the KYR photo love he rightfully deserved.

Snoe.down 2011 :: Friday at Killington Resort

Good gawd, it’s was quite the afternoon of aural ambition. Drop kicking it off, The London Souls (TheLondonSouls.com) set the bar high, hard and ballsy. It’s a shame there weren’t more K1 heads on hand to get fire hosed by their blue blasted and sometimes blissful urgency. If you missed it, it was your loss.

From there it was up the Superstar chair and over the back of the hill to the Bear Lodge. Dangermuffin (DangerMuffinMusic.com) laid out a tasty spread of  frequently ragga-fied jammies. It was obvious these guys loved their work. And so did everyone else in the room. At 3.30pm they were followed by the five-piece Timbre Coup (TimbreCoup.com). Their meal was distinct and hopped up with progressive spices. But 4.00pm came fast and it was time to catch one of the last chairs out of Bear and back to K1.

And then finally The Brew (TheBrew.biz) closed out the daylight portion of today’s program. This time the head count at K1 was plentiful, and The Brew took full advantage of the situation. They boldly declared the party had begun.  It was obvious and official, Snoe.down 2011 had hit full stride.

Apologies to Timbre Coup for less-than-ideal coverage. The last chair out of Bear was 4.00pm and getting back to K1, The Brew (and the car) took priority.
