There has been yet another round of artist additions to Bonnaroo 2006, and it’s not like that’s anything that surprises me. In fact, I’m still hoping that they add Rick Moranis to the bill. I’d drop everything and hop on a plane for that s***.
Also, if you haven’t gotten a chance to get a look at their Bonnaroo E-Card, it’s actually pretty spiffy. They’ve got some live cuts from last year’s performance, some photos, some videos, all that good stuff that an E-Card should have. The only weird part? The announcement that MLB Authentic Collection was the one that “partnered” (read: built) with Superfly to get it built. It just seems oddly out-of-place…
:: ARTIST ADDITIONS – ROUND 5 ::
: PRESERVATION HALL JAZZ BAND ::
We are deeply honored to welcome to this year’s festival, direct from the heart of New Orleans, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. For three days and nights (Thursday, Friday, Saturday) this legendary American institution will recreate our beloved New Orleans with their glorious sounds and styles. Holding court in the Preservation Hall Tent the PHJB will present an array of uniquely New Orleans acts such as Bones, Clint Maedgen, Noise Parade, the New Orleans Bingo! Show, and Liquidrone.
Celebrating the 45th anniversary of the Preservation Hall these musicians (many second generation descendents of the original members) carry on the traditions of the birthplace of Jazz.
:: BINDLESTIFF FAMILY CIRKUS ::
The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus will be presenting their unique hybrid of vaudeville, classic circus, burlesque and sideshow at this years Bonnaroo. All day Sunday they will transform the Preservation Hall Tent into the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus experience led by Sword Swallower Mr. Pennygaff and Whipcracking Ringmistress Philomena Bindlestiff.
The BFC will also be joining the Dresden Dolls for the late night Saturday Cabaret as well as performing atmospherically all day long – not to be missed!
