If you’re one of those people who loves getting down and can never seem to get enough low end or brass in your life, get your booty down to Live Oak, FL this weekend for the 7th Annual Bear Creek Music Festival.
In just a few short years, Bear Creek has quickly risen through the ranks of the crowded festival scene to reign supreme as one of the few can’t-miss festivals on the funk/jam circuit. Boasting a who’s who of New Orleans royalty, and the funkiest bands from Brooklyn, Austin, Cali, and everywhere in between, this festival consistently delivers one giant ass-shakin good time year after year. I’ve been known to call it the best fest east of the Mississippi, and have yet to meet anyone that’s been there disagree with me. In fact, it’s one of those festivals that artists circle on the calendar and look forward to as well — a rare chance to hang out and collaborate with their fellow musicians.
For the sake of generalization, Bear Creek is an extremely intimate fest that is essentially two parts JazzFest at night, one part JamCruise minus the bluegrass, with a dash of electronic music and a Silent Disco to keep the party going into the wee hours for good measure.
