Trying to describe last weekend is tough. We left Trumansburg to avoid the crowds that arrive for the Grassroots music festival. Ironically, we drove 5 hours to spend our weekend listening to music at the Hoovstock. And it was AWESOME!
Three years ago, my friend, Joe Streno flew back from Seattle to attend the first incarnation of the Hooverpalooza. Music, fun and friends in Asbury Park NJ. For Joe, this was home. These were his friends from his college days. This year, Joe wanted to share that fun with Nancy and I.
Here's the blurb from the FB event page:
ONCE MORE WE’RE PUTTING ON THE BIG BIG BIG BIG SHOW IN ASBURY PARK. SO GET YOUR GUITARS & DRUMS & VOICES & TIN WHISTLES & VIOLINS AND WHATEVER ELSE YOU GOT AND COME ON DOWN AND BE PART OF IT.
Magicians, Comedians and Drummers welcome!
SPEND THE DAY AT THE BEACH. MAKE A WEEKEND OF IT AND STAY IN A HOTEL. HELL WE’RE EVEN GOING FULL STRUMMERVILLE! THIS YEAR BRING A TENT, AND after the show, PITCH IT IN OUR YARD!
Every single person (and dog) was having a good time.
