LABOR DAY MUSIC FESTIVAL IN THE POCONOS FEATURING THE RADIATORS WITH SPECIAL GUESTS THE NEW MASTERSOUNDS (one of my favorite bands, they rip it up and get psychic with the improv, one of the best funk bands around for sure)
Located in the Pocono Mountains a 2 ½ hour drive from NYC, EQUIFUNK. It seems to be a departure from the massive festivals where the stage seems miles away, The 2-day event features nightly live performances by New Orleans’ artists, The Radiators and a Saturday late night performance by England’s funkiest, The New Mastersounds.
accommodations include fully renovated bunks and cabins; all meals including outdoor evening barbeques, ‘mess-hall’ breakfast buffets and lunches and poolside snacks and beverages (beer and soft drinks) throughout the day; and various camp activities including sports, crafts and/or relaxation with music at the resort style pool. Evenings will offer festivities and full nights of music with the Radiators, as well as a late night show on Saturday with The New Mastersounds.
Playing for over three decades together, The Radiators, affectionately known as “The Rads” play close to 150 dates a year, selling out shows in major markets from New York to San Francisco. Long before there was a phenomenon called Jam Band Music, The Radiators’ shows were noted for their seemingly infinite repertoire and their soulful, inspired improvisations. They have shared the stage with such luminaries as Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Bob Weir, George Porter, Jr. and Maceo Parker have sat in on occasion. EQUIFUNK provides the rare opportunity for “fish-heads” and festival goers to be a part of two rocking sets each night in an intimate outdoor setting.
The New Mastersounds are a four-piece band based in Leeds, England, with a modern take on vintage soul-jazz, funk and rock. Having toured throughout Europe, Japan and the US, the NMS have earned global recognition as a key band in the ‘New Funk’ scene and have garnered a large following both in here and abroad.
Admission is $250 per person
