GrassRoots Fest 2014 - Who I'm Excited to See

It's that special time of the year again! The Finger Lakes GrassRoots Festival of Music and Dance is fast approaching and this year's lineup is just as amazing as you'd expect. There are dozens amazing bands on the bill, but here are a few I'm looking forward to catching:

Lake Street Dive - If you haven't heard these guys yet, it's about time you have. I saw them for the first time a little over a year ago and they've been one of my favorite new bands ever since. Their recent release, Bad Self Portraits, has catapulted them towards mainstream fame with good reason. I love it when talented musicians get their due.

Joe Driscoll and Sekou Kouyate - When musical powers from disparate worlds come together, it speaks to the true testament of how music unites us through a common language. These two musicians are as great an example of that phenomenon as you will find bridging the gap between the US and Conakry, Guinea with music as their only guide.

Locos Por Juana - I couldn't be more pumped to see Locos Por Juana back at GrassRoots again. These guys are a latin dance party explosion waiting to happen, and GrassRoots couldn't be a better place for them to do their thing.

John Brown's Body - These guys are a GrassRoots institution, and they kill it every year. Seeing them on such a big stage in such a great atmosphere really brings out their potential to shine. I look forward to seeing them every year without a doubt.

GrassRoots is a special event. Such a beautiful gathering of happy people to dance and play together. If you haven't been yourself, consider making this year your first!
