The Woodstock era

Peace, love and music! That’s exactly what I was thinking about when AM Radio Tribute Band completed our set at Mauch Chunk Opera House on Saturday night of a three-days Woodstock retrospective in Jim Thorpe, PA.

During our sets, we focused on the music of 1967, 1968 and 1969. We performed some of the best known music of the Woodstock era by Santana, Joe Cocker, Janis Joplin, Canned Heat… (Our "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" jam even saw me bust out a bit of Moody Blues!) But it was an anthem by the Youngbloods that brought down the house.

A lot of times, the crowd is shooting video of us. Well, when I saw two rows of people holding hands and swaying, I took one hand away from the keyboard and started documenting the scene. Spotlights would eventually shine on the whole place singing in unison: “Come on, people, now / Smile on your brother / Everybody get together / Try to love one another right now.”

This ended a month of Woodstock-themed performances for AM Radio Tribute Band. Especially memorable among them was an outdoor festival set in Haddon Township, NJ, where we even saw the Beatles tribute act The Newspaper Taxis bust out a Jimi Hendrix tune!
