Switchback Brewing Co. Presents The Oxbow Music Festival for its second year. This years show is presented by Switchback Brewing Co. and has a solid list of sponsors that make this production possible.

This years OMF features Cats Under the Stars as the headliner. Cats Under the Stars is a tribute to the Jerry Garcia Band and is fronted by lead guitar player, vocalist and Garcia specialist Zach Nugent. Zach has spent much of his adult life learning, listening to, perfecting and performing the music of Jerry Garcia and he is spot on. His fire has caught on around the country and Zach has been asked to perform in Dead tributes from Az to Co and all over the east coast. He often is brought in as a ringer for these different tributes but his home is Burlington. Along with Cats, Zach also fronts the Tuesday night weekly Dead Set which performs every Tuesday at Metronome above Nectars. Along with fronting two bands and sitting in with dead bands around the country Zach also performs acoustically at establishments all over Vermont.  

As if that were not enough Zach and Melvin Seals (longtime B3 player for the Jerry Garcia Band) have struck up a musical friendship. Zach and Melvin have now performed together at Jerry Jam for the last two years and on a couple of short runs in the North East. This year at Jerry Jam Zach joined the Jerry Garcia Band for two headlining sets as the guitarist and vocalist. Rumor has it that we can expect more collaborations in the future from these two. The OMF is very excited to host Cats as our headliner this year. 

In addition we also have The Peacheaters ( an Almann Bros. Experience) performing. These guys are from Massachusetts and come fully equip with the proper instrumentation, passion and attention to nuance that made the Almann’s so memorable.

Once again the OMF is proud to highlight arguably the best know musical personality in Lamoille County, Seth Yacovone. Last year Seth performed along with a Dead tribute this year he is bringing his band the Seth Yacovone Band. These guys put the power in power trio! Stowe local rockers Shady Trees will be holding down the ski bum contingent. Beg Steal or Borrow is a tribute to the Old and in Way collaboration that originally featured Jerry Garcia and David Grisman. Lesley Grant along with her band brings some country vibe to the show while DJ Nickel B will holding down a couple of in between sets of his brand of dub. Nickel B is a producer and is known locally for his contribution to the Itation Sound System and his recent live work with Dub is Dead. 

Oxbow Music festival really has a solid lineup for their second show. Tickets are available here and in person at Moog’s Place. Kids under 12 are FREE!!!!
