DoDaJam Festival in Georgia (USA)

Jam band festivals don't feature much steel guitar, but the crowd at next weekend's DoDaJam will be treated to two unique and talented pedal steel players. First there's Roosevelt Collier of The Lee Boys, an uplifting group in the Sacred Steel tradition. The Lee Boys will be on the Do Da Stage at 1:30 Friday afternoon, April 22 (if I'm reading the schedule correctly).

The New Riders of the Purple Sage need no introduction to "boomer" steel guitar fans. Jerry Garcia, the band's original steeler, yielded the steel chair to Buddy Cage in 1971 and rock history was made. While most of the original original members have passed on, Buddy Cage and David Nelson re-formed the band a few years ago and continue to rock audiences on tour. They'll be on the Do Da Jam Stage this Saturday night, April 23 at 11:00 PM.

The DoDaJam Festival is at the Etawah River Campground in Dahlonega, Georgia (USA). Visit DoDaJam.com for more information.
