Orgone’s never-ending tour lights up The Bishop Bar in Bloomington, IN, May 30, 2012

Orgone lit the stage on fire Wednesday, May 30th at the Bishop Bar in Bloomington, IN. Having made a stop in the city during their fall 2011 tour, the crowd was filled with many dedicated Orgone fans as well as newly converted funk fanatics. A full set of old hits and new jams left the crowd in a sweaty, melted, synergistic state of funk.

With a new album coming out in a few months, the group’s energy and groove are as tight as ever. This hard touring band will be covering the country this summer with a jam-packed set of dates. Check their schedule and hit up a show for a real taste of Cali fever.

Check out the videos below, and the full SBD audio download here.

Also, if you’re wondering, Fanny Franklin, Orgone’s previous singer, has released an album of her own and I highly recommend it: http://soundcloud.com/fannyfranklin.

Funk It’s Bear Creek Music Festival 2011 teaser video

As you can image, Bear Creek Music Festival was magical! The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park was amazing, the artists were amazing, and the people were amazing (and my close friends know that I don’t use that word often).

The music park is perfect, all of the stages are very close together yet there is very little audio bleed through. The vibe is loose and open and everyone is there to party and have a great time. I met a ton of people and I have never seen soo many audio and video tapers in one place. I was very surprised by the amount of people shooting video on either video cameras or SLR cams with external mics. From what I hear, this is one of the only festivals that is a complete free for all as far as shooting video is concerned.

Needless to say, I was a wild man and I ended up shooting 14 hours of video over the course of 3 days. I could have done much more, but I ran out of space and had to borrow a memory card on the last night (thanks Bob!).

Over the next few months I will be featuring many of these videos here. For now, check out this teaser video to whet your appetite.
