Gallery: Woods Fest 2
(Writer: Frankie Cavone)
Over the weekend, Woods Fest 2 took place at the Woods Valley Ski Area in Rome, NY with a day loaded full of live music and fun for everyone. The great thing about Woods Fest is that while you can “get down” to all the acts throughout the day, it is a relaxing atmosphere to bring a couple lawn chairs along with the kids. The weather for event couldn’t of been any better, especially for the location. The music was spread out over 2 different stages with genres of music for everyone which were located at the base of the mountain. Headlining the second annual festival was Annie in the Water who has been touring relentlessly all summer long. Their set featured a top notch version of Talking Head’s “Take Me To The River” along with a super jam of musicians who played previously throughout the event and even a crew member!
Woods Fest 2 also featured sets from The Old Main, The Black River, Los Blancos, Nina’s Brew, Les Brers, Late Earth and Substanance and Dark Hollow. For the second year of the event, promotors pulled out all the stops for Woods Fest. Shout out to the City of Rome for donating their stage, High Peaks Event Productions, sponsors such as Bremer Hearing and Audio Technology , Mike Kohli and Matt Strong for the lighting design.
