Summer Camp 2006 Live #1 – Family Groove Company

I decided to start featuring some of the Summer Camp 2006 live sets for download, so that some of us can relive the moments all over again, and so that you poor souls who missed out can see why you should come next year.

I’m going to start off the live sets with my first Summer Camp set ever, which happened to be from a personal favorite artist of mine, Family Groove Company. I arrived around 5pm on Thursday afternoon and to my delight I stumbled upon FGC playing on the Sunshine Stage, not more than 200 feet from where I was about to set up camp. And so we proceeded to raise our tents and stake ’em in, all to the tune of Family Groove playing some of their standards as well as two awesome covers. It was a perfect way to start off the festival weekend for me, so I’m going to share it with you. Here it is in all of its goodness, clocking in at 59 minutes and 50 seconds, Family Groove Company.

If you haven’t already checked out Family Groove Company live, I highly recommend attending the Park West, Chicago show Tomorrow night with Tea Leaf Green. Tea Leaf Green is one of the quickest rising jam acts around, and Family Groove Company is easily my favorite Chicago local funk/jam act around, I can see them blowing up quickly in the next couple years. It’s $15 and I guarantee you’ll have a good time, so check it out.

  1. Hey Kane – thanks for posting our tracks and for the kind words! You have earned yourself the honor of “Cool Site of the Month” at http://www.familygrooveco.com. Enjoy the fame for the month of June, and don’t let it go to your head! hehehe.

  2. I saw the lineup on the main web page for the fest, seems like it was all jam bands? Not my style, didn’t see an artist that I like except for Andrew Bird and he seemed like a weird fit with the others. Will be much more into Intonation and Pitchfork.
