Sunday, May 26, 2013 12:00p
Three Sisiters Park Chillicothe, IL

The first Summer Camp Music Festival was held in 2001 at Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, IL. About 1,000 attended the festival that year, and enjoyed over 20 bands on 2 stages over the course of 2 days. Since then, Summer Camp Music Festival has  grown to more than 15,000 attendees, hosting more than 100 bands on 7 stages over 3 days . And while our numbers have grown, Summer Camp still maintains the same energy and family feel we had when we started over a decade ago. As one fan put it,  “Coming… Show more

Keller Williams
Keller Williams Remove performer from this event
Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Keller Williams is literally a one-man jam band. His fascinating live shows feature him solo on-stage with a Gibson Echoplex Digital Pro looping unit, and he creates his backing loops in the moment, building and improvising as he goes on his custom-made ten-string guitar, and thanks to his equally as quirky, upbeat, and semi-surreal songs (which he frequently weaves into extended, half-improvised medleys) and his warm, friendly tenor singing voice, Williams is an utterly unique performer whose musical eccentricities don't keep him from being immediately accessible....

Diplo Remove performer from this event
One thing of which Diplo (aka Diplodocus, Wes Diplo, and Wes Gully) cannot be accused is being afraid to experiment with new music. With his mash-up mixtapes, he found and created a sound where his musical tastes -- '80s pop, electronica, Dirty South hip-hop, and his major influence, Miami bass music -- intersect....

Nov 14, 2007 - Sylar on Keller Williams
Amazing!

I have to say, this guy is the king of improvisation. He uses samplers to layer himself over himself, combining instruments, sounds and styles to create any kind of jam you can imagine. Nothing throws this guy off - the Blue Angels interrupted the show I saw more than once and he managed to roll with it and put it in the song!

Funk, reggae, bluegrass, more funk - you name it. This guy is the string master.

(no rating) Oct 09, 2007 - yonder on Yonder Mountain String Band
Milwaukee show at the rave on 10/5/07

The Wood Brothers opened the show for yonder and got the crowd movin quite nicely for an acoustic guitar/upright bass duo. The Wood Bros. played several songs from "Ways Not To Lose" which inclueded Atlas, Luckiest Man, Where My Baby Might Be, and One More Day along with a few others. When Yonder came out the crowd was ready to see what they had to offer. Ben opened with Looking Back Over My Shoulder and the crowd just loved it. Yonder invited the Wood bros. back out to jam with em which was a good treat. They pulled out a brand new song named "Cupid shot me twice and missed you all together" Yonder did a wonderful job of preforming "dawns early light" "east nashville easter" and "upon the hill where they do the boogie" All in all everyone who went to the show in Mil town was done justice and I'm willing to bet the show in Mad town will be better

Freaking. Awesome.

One man. 12 instruments. Any kind of music he feels like.

Jul 04, 2007 - josh on Medeski, Martin & Wood
Defining their own genre

These guys basically took the jazz-funk thing to a new level. Over the years they've branched out into more and more experimental concepts, but they still can bust a nasty groove.
