Lt. Dan at Bonnaroo 2014

10464040_10152496646489176_3509924042674316545_nI’ll be working backstage again at Bonnaroo. It’s my 11th year in a row running the backstage interview studio. I’ve had some great memories over the year and met some amazing musicians. In 2004 we met Marc Broussard, 2005 Brett Dennen, was Brandi Carlile in 2005 as well? That’s kind of a problem. The years and sometimes the bands are hard to tell apart. If I don’t label photos, sometimes I forget which band it was. I may be a genius editing a pro tools session but the ole memory…well not so much. Looking ahead at this year and my own private backstage bonnaroo is pretty exciting! First of all, it’s the first year that back at Lightning 100 I have an assistant, which means it’s the first year I’m not editing until midnight to get all my production done for the week. I’ve left a lot in the capable hands of Guy Fell, including my interview with John and Lilly Hiatt for this Sunday’sFather’s Day edition of Music Business Radio.
So what am I excited about on the schedule? Just about everything! We have around 40 bands booked. Some big names you’ve heard of like Cage The Elephant, James Blake, Damon Albarn (Blur and The Gorillaz) or Avett Brothers and other bands under the radar like Lake Street Drive, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, and Roadkill Ghost Choir. There are personal favorites like Sarah Jarosz, J Roddy Walston & The Business, Umphrey’s McGee, and Ben Howard. We have some of my favorite Nashville based bands as well like Fly Golden Eagle, Wild Feathers, and The Wood Brothers. There are some names I don’t recognize and every year at least one of them ends up getting added to the radio station. You don’t get booked backstage at bonnaroo if someone doesn’t believe you are worth believing in. Who will it be this year?
I don’t get outside of the trailer much during the day, so I always eye the after dark performances and headliners. I’ll be clear that I was disappointed to see Kanye West make the bill again. He should be banned for all I care. My guess is it’s politics. The bosses are trying to spin it like their behind it but it doesn’t make any sense to me. Any other hip hop act on the planet would have been better. My opinion is out there so let’s move on. Breaking it into days on Thursday it’s starts early with Nashville’s own The Wild Feathers. It’s their Bonnaroo debut and the word is out about these guys. They put on an amazing live show and folks will be talking about it all weekend. Another Nashville act Cherub has been blowing up on the west coast and I’m excited to see them continue their march towards success. White Denim will take the stage at Midnight Thursday and I’m going to try and be there. I really like their music and am excited to see the live show. I should also mention another Nashville band called Bully that will be playing early at 2pm and I’ve heard great things about them. Definitely an under the radar act to check out.

Wells’ Top 10 Favorite Bonnaroo Videos!

1. #1 has got to be our Apache Relay golf cart video.  Brian the web guy and I dreamed up this idea very late one night at Bonnaroo.  I taped the mic to the back of the cart and we had 4 cameras on this ride.  It will forever be my favorite moment on the farm.

2. This was one of the 1st videos Brian the web guy and I made.  It still makes me laugh.  Apparently there is a lot of poo and drugs in the water…

3. 17 things I forgot to take to Bonnaroo.  You should know I was really into Alt J at the time this video was made.  Alt J…and tank tops.  Pickle?

4. Moon Taxi singing the Bonnaroo song in a ….wait for it…port-o-john.  Anyone who has been to the Roo knows that Port-o-potties aren’t meant for extended visits.  We got this in one shot, I ran sound sitting on the ground.  It was gross and awesome all at once.

5. #5 has got to be The Punch Brothers and Sarah Jaroz playing “Cry Cry Darling” in the radio compound.  Sometimes things just happen really organically and this was one of those times.  Chris Thile of  The Punch Brothers had been mixing drinks for everyone all night and decided he wanted to jam with 19 year old Sarah Jaroz.  I was so happy to have been there for this!

6. This was the 1st time me and B-dub got to meet The Weeks.  We were fans instantly!

7. I loved the Ben Sollee video from CenteRoo.  There were a bunch of folks hanging under the shade tree just waiting for the next band to play The Which Stage, little did they know they were getting awesome seats to a really cool show.  I really like his theory of how the Globe burned down as well.

8. I have never had so much fun running sound for a shoot.  Cheer Up Charlie Daniels cracks me up!

9. We like hip hop at Lightning 100 too!  Chancellor Warhol is one bad dude.

10.  As far as song writing goes, Caitlin Rose’s Shanghai Cigarettes is about as good as it gets.
