Jun 26, 2017 Blog

by YonderAdmin

Yonder Field is pleased to announce a “Jam” festival confirmed for this fall. The AGRISONIC MUSIC FESTIVAL will be held on Saturday, October 21 at the new outdoor venue space in Bowman, SC. 

“I am so excited to present this festival with the beautiful backdrop of Yonder Field,” said President/General Manager, Stacie Darr White. “Jam Bands combine so many elements from diverse styles under the Rock umbrella and they cross genres to incorporate Funk, Jazz, Country, Blues and Folk, to name a few. And DISPATCH, our headliner, has never played before in South Carolina so we’re thrilled to be the first to welcome them here! The term ‘agrisonic’ refers to using sound to stimulate plant growth. Even though we will be announcing more events for the 2017 season, this will be our final music festival of our inaugural season, after which we will harvest our grass seed in early November to get ready for the 2018 season.”

About the Artists: 

DISPATCH 
Heralded as one of the biggest independent rock bands in history, Dispatch hit a major career milestone when they played an outdoor concert in Boston that drew over 110,000 people and were dubbed by Rolling Stone as the hosts of the largest independent music event ever. The band continued to impress fans and critics alike with three consecutive shows at New York City’s Madison Square Garden with ties to their philanthropic work in Zimbabwe, becoming the first independent band to sell out the historic venue. In 2011, the band officially reunited to release new material, including a six-song EP (extended play) and their first full-length studio album since 2000, Circles Around the Sun. They have since embarked on multiple sold-out arena tours across the globe and are set to release their most ambitious musical effort this summer. 

moe. 
moe. is the preeminent progressive rock band on the music scene today—a quintet of world class musicians whose creative output equals that of their longevity. In a remarkable career that has touched three decades and produced a discography of 24 albums, moe. continues to push the standard for performance art higher and further. Their music is clever, melodic and refined while their performances are entertaining, mesmerizing, and epic. Long a featured act at music festivals, they’ve performed and headlined at the likes of Bonnaroo, All Good, and High Sierra in the US and Fuji Rock Festival in Japan, and Burg Herzberg in Germany, yet made time to promote and perform at their own festivals—Summer Camp, Snoe.down, and moe.down. This “legendary jam band,” as Rolling Stone described them, represents rock and roll at its best. 

WOOD BROTHERS
Dubbed “masters of soulful folk” (Paste Magazine), The Wood Brothers released their debut studio album, ‘Ways Not To Lose,’ in 2006. Chris Wood already had devoted fans for his incomparable work as one-third of Medeski Martin & Wood, while his brother, Oliver, toured with Tinsley Ellis before releasing a half dozen albums with his band, King Johnson. Almost a decade later, and with drummer Jano Rix added as a third member, The Wood Brothers have been hailed by the New York Times for their “gripping” vocals and by the LA Times for their “taught musicianship.” ‘Paradise’ follows the band’s acclaimed 2013 release ‘The Muse,’ which was recorded almost entirely live around a tree of microphones in Zac Brown’s Southern Ground studio. Taking a different approach to their sixth studio album, the decision to record in Nashville was no coincidence, as ‘Paradise’ marks the first album written with the entire band living in Music City. 

LEFTOVER SALMON 
For the past quarter-century, Colorado’s Leftover Salmon has established itself as one of the great purveyors of Americana music, digging deep into the well that supplies its influences: rock ‘n’ roll, folk, bluegrass, Cajun, soul, zydeco, jazz and blues. They are firmly settled in the long lineage of bands that defy simple categorization, instead setting their own musical agenda. They are the direct descendants of bands like Little Feat, New Grass Revival, Grateful Dead and The Band, born of the heart and soul of America itself, playing music that reflects the sounds emanating from the Appalachian hills, the streets of New Orleans, the clubs of Chicago, the plains of Texas, and the mountains of Colorado. During Leftover Salmon’s 25 plus years as a band, they have released nine albums and maintained a vibrant, relevant, and influential voice in the music world. 

DEAD 27s 
On their debut EP, “Chase Your Devils Down,” Dead 27s brilliantly infused rock ‘n’ roll and classic soul with both raw energy and refined musicality. Now with their first full-length effort, “Ghosts Are Calling Out,” the Charleston-based band expands their sound by pursuing their passion for loose and joyful experimentation. Working with a treasure trove of obscure and vintage lo-fi gear, Dead 27s have widened their sonic repertoire to offer up an album that’s boldly inventive but rooted in pure emotion. With each show serving as a breeding ground for creativity, Dead 27s find much inspiration from their time on the road. Through that near-constant writing and performing, 

Dead 27s have vastly strengthened their creative connection and pushed the boundaries of their musicianship.
