High Sierra 2010: Zach Deputy

Ask anyone at High Sierra 2010 what one of their highlights would be, and you’ll likely hear a lot of people talk about Zach Deputy. The first set on Thursday he played already had half of my camp totally amped to see him another time, so I didn’t want to miss the set he had on the schedule for the Big Meadow stage the next day. His set ran heavy on the loops and good vibes and the crowd was loving every second of it.

Here’s a video someone got from the same set:

Later that evening, when walking my way over to Widespread Panic, we ran into Zach Deputy playing a set at his campsite adjacent to the main stage. His entire rig, featuring a full drum rock mounted with mics, mixers and looping pedals, was atop his U-haul and the entire scene was actually pretty incredible. There were easily 100 people stopped, rocking and dancing along with the vibe. It was awesome.

[…] After Zach Deputy’s set and some time back at camp to rally a crew together, Camp Cock Awe made their way over to Music Hall for an hour long set of gumbo jazz from the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Given that I’m completely ignorant to all things wonderful about New Orleans culture and heritage (I really hope to visit that city soon), this was a welcome treat and a wonderful hour indoors to beat the heat from the sun outside. But the place filled in and brought a bit of a sweaty-down-south vibe that kept the entire music hall sweaty with exuberance. I really enjoyed it; definitely one of the highlights of the weekend for me. […]
