After cleaning all of the sand out of our camera lenses, tripods, computers(some how), and other places we don’t care to mention, Lightning 100 is able to start posting our backstage performances at 2013 Hangout Music Fest. Nashville artists were definitely representing at the festival this year performing at small/major stages and even the shuttle buses. The Nashville lineup included Moon Taxi, The Kingston Springs, Chancellor Warhol, The Weeks, Luella and the Sun, Josh Farrow, Wild Cub, The Wild Feathers, and a few others that were just enjoying the festival.

2011 was a great year for music!
I went through all the videos from bands and artists that performed on my show this year and was blown away by all the great memories!
One I will remember for the rest of my life was THE DOOBIE BROTHERS asking me to sing BLACK WATER. In the middle of the performance! Unreal. Thank god I was basically in key…or this would not be the first video in my Best of 2011!
This Nashville based band put out one of my favorite albums in 2011. I had the pleasure of having them perform this track LOST BOY on my show. Pick up a copy of THE APACHE RELAY album AMERICAN NOMAD today at Grimey’s New & Preloved Music.
How about getting THE CIVIL WARS on my show! Such a pleasure getting this intimate performance of BARTON HOLLOW from Joy Williams and John Paul White. Life is good!
When NICKEL CREEK said, farewell for now, we all knew we would get some superb music from the gang, as they explored solo projects and new groups. Chris Thile seems to really be enjoying himself here with his new band, THE PUNCH BROTHERS. This recording is coming from two room mics. Simply amazing.
MOON TAXI – I love this Nashville band. It’s been so much fun watching them grow into the stars they have yet to become. Their new album CABARET drops in the beginning of February. 2012 will be the year of MOON TAXI!
I guess for now, this will be a top 5 but there are dozens more. This link will take you to the beginning of the year on our youtube page.
Thanks for listening and cheers to an awesome 2011!
Los Lonely Boys
The Dirty Guv’nahs
The new record is going to be phenomenal!!! So proud of these guys.
