Suwannee Rising Music Festival has announced the lineup for Oteil & Friends‘ set at the inaugural event set to take place on April 4th, 5th, and 6th at Live Oak, FL’s legendary Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park.
For the headlining set, Oteil Burbridge will be joined by fellow Dead & Company bandmate Jeff Chimenti, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead guitarist Scott Metzger, Chris Robinson Brotherhood and Circles Around The Sun guitarist Neal Casal and Mike Gordon drummer John Kimock.
Oteil & Friends will join Lettuce, moe., Dumpstaphunk, The New Mastersounds, Ghost-Note, New Orleans Suspects, The Fritz, Voodoo Visionary, Come Back Alice, Ben Sparaco & Full Effect, Electric Kif, Ben Fagan & the Holy City Hooligans, Good Talk, Holy Miss Moley, Kaleigh Baker’s Someday Honey, Custard Pie, LPT, Ben Strok & Full Electric, Shevonne, Ella Jet & Future Soul, The Difference, and Melody Trucks Band.
Following the cancellation of Wanee Music Festival, which typically took place at Spirit of the Suwannee in mid-April, loyal fans can now look forward to the new April festival at the park. While the legacy of the Allman Brothers Band‘s festival continued with a Wanee-branded Live Nation event in Fort Lauderdale, Suwannee Rising will seemingly take the familiar shape of Bear Creek, the short-lived but legendary Suwannee funk festival that took place for several years in the fall. With the spirit of Wanee still lingering, fans can rest assured that the funk and jams will continue with Suwannee Rising, and hopefully for years to come.
Tickets to the Suwannee Rising Music Festival are available now via eTix.
