I now that String Cheese was just added yesterday but I'm really anxious to see more and more and more bands get announced. Maybe Jack Johnson, MOE, Keller Williams please please please
(..........and the long long long long long stretch of the TOOL announcement :lol: I can still hope and pray right?)
02-17-2005, 10:41 AM
I want Widespread damnit...
02-17-2005, 11:34 AM
any clue TeamB????
02-17-2005, 12:04 PM
Bring on Les and MOE. :twisted:
02-17-2005, 01:13 PM
I agree that Panic would be great!! It looks doubtful though. As I'm sure you already know, Panic is playing the Starlight Theater in KC on 5/3. Presale on the tickets start on 2/22 via widespreadpanic.com. I know it's not the same as a festival atmoshphere, but it should be a good show. I also agree that moe would be a great addition!
If we're looking at smaller groups. I'd like to see Todd Snider, John Prine or Ratdog. (I'm not sure how small these bands are anymore.)
02-17-2005, 01:23 PM
There will be more acts announced in the coming weeks but no exact date has been decided upon. However you folks will be the first to know.

That would probably offend a lot of the hippies, but it would still make this THE greatest festival that has EVER happened I think. Tool has been my favorite band for a very long time, before I got into jam bands, and after my first jamband experience (SCI at westfair in 2001) I decided that it would be incredible if more Tool fans got into the jam scene and more jammers got into stuff like Tool. A lot of Tool fans tend to be too into the \"dark\" and introspective, and the jammers too into the \"light\" and extroverted...it'd be nice to see some intermixing. I'm thinking its probably impossible though...Tool's new album (from what I hear) doesn't come out until July or August.

Realistically, I do not think bands such as Panic, moe., Trey etc. will be added, but I could be wrong. The folks at Wakarusa have certainly surprised us enough already with the recent additions of Cheese, Mali, and The Big Wu and I think that some really good bands are still in store. I would love to see Barefoot Manner, some form of The Dead ( besides The Schwag be it Ratdog, Phil and Friends or DSO), The Breakfast (Psychedelic Breakfast), Strangefolk, Ben Harper (this would just be insane), Keller, DTB, Ween, Hookah, MMW, The New Deal, Raq, The Phix (really really good Phish cover band), and of course Franti and Spearhead. It would be considered insane to think that all of those bands would be added to Wakarusa, so I guess this is just my wish list of some of the bands that could be added; or rather I would like added.

I really like the Schwag they put on really good shows. They kind of have their own style but the songs are duplicated perfectly. Check out there site www.theschwag.com and I highly suggest making it out to one of this years Schwagstocks.
As for a good Phish tribute band the Helping Phriendly Band is a very good one. In another Topic HPB came up as well and a member from HPB put out a thread and stated that they would like to play at Wakarusa. So as far as a Phish band, I think we might get to see one this year.
02-23-2005, 03:53 PM
Yeah I am all about The Scwag man and actually really enjoyed their stuff last year, but just prefer one of the other bands I mentioned. On the other hand, that is EXCELLENT to hear that a a Phish coverband is possibly playing at Wakarusa. Man I miss those guys.

i too would rather see DSO than the schwag, but any incarnation of the dead would be that much better. Phil and Friends please :)
02-24-2005, 01:10 PM
for some reason, i love to see dead cover bands, but the idea of seeing a band perform all phish songs makes me want to cry. dead songs have been played for years and years and everbody has their own incarnation of them, but to see 4 guys on the stage trying to recreate phish drives me crazy. basically i have no point to what im saying here. just rambling.
02-24-2005, 04:22 PM
:D Please get the MARS VOLTA!!! I need the freak to come out in me!!

I was the same way at Schwagstock 24 when I heard that there was a Phish tribute band name The Helping Phriendly Band playing there. Same can be said for everyone else I met b4 the show too. There was tons of talk about them and none of it was good. But I had to admit that afterwards I was more than impressed. They played the songs almost exactly alike and put on a real good show. They're invited back to a few Schwagstocks this year, so they definately impressed someone.
Here are a few live tracks.....
02-25-2005, 02:10 PM
those guys are very good.. phix is also very good.. ive seen them a couple times. i dont think its so much that nobody can recreate phish, but more of a nostalgia thing for me. phish was the end all be all for me, and maybe i just havent come to grips yet that i wont be able to see the real deal ever again. but both those bands are very good, and extremely talented. just seems weird when you hear the sound and see different people making it.

no so funny anymore? our friend gary is unhappy (from the NY Times):
Internet fame is cruel mistress for video dancer
There was a time when embarrassing talents were a purely private matter. If you could sing \"The Star Spangled Banner\" in the voice of Daffy Duck, no one but your friends and family would ever have to know.
But with the Internet, humiliation--like everything else--has now gone public. Upload a video of yourself playing flute with your nose or dancing in your underwear, and people from Toledo to Turkmenistan can watch.
Here, then, is the cautionary tale of Gary Brolsma, 19, amateur videographer and guy from New Jersey, who made the grave mistake of placing on the Internet a brief clip of himself dancing along to a Romanian pop song. Even in the bathroom mirror, Brolsma's performance could only be described as earnest but painful.
His story suggests that the quaint days when cultural trinkets, like celebrity sex tapes, were passed around like novels in Soviet Russia are over. It says a little something of the lightning speed at which fame is made these days.
To begin at the beginning:
Brolsma, a pudgy guy from Saddle Brook, made a video of himself this fall performing a lip-synced version of \"Dragostea Din Tei,\" a Romanian pop tune, which roughly translates to \"Love From the Linden Trees.\" He not only mouthed the words, he bounced along in what he called the \"Numa Numa Dance\"--an arm-flailing, eyebrow-****ed performance executed without ever once leaving the chair.
In December, the Web site newgrounds.com, a clearinghouse for online videos and animation, placed a link to Brolsma on its home page and, soon, there was a river of attention. \"Good Morning America\" came calling and he appeared. CNN and VH1 broadcast the clip. Parodists tried their own Numa Numa dances online. By Friday, the Brolsma rendition of \"Love From the Linden Trees\" had attracted nearly 2 million hits on the original Web site alone.
It was just as Diane Sawyer said on her television program: \"Who knows where this will lead?\"
Nowhere, apparently. For, in Brolsma's case, the river became a flood.
He has now sought refuge from his fame in his family's small house on a gritty street in Saddle Brook. He has stopped taking phone calls from the news media, including The New York Times. He canceled an appearance on NBC's \"Today.\" According to his relatives, he mopes around the house.
What's worse is that no one seems to understand.
\"I said, 'Gary this is your one chance to be famous - embrace it,'\" said Corey Dzielinski, who has known Brolsma since the fifth grade. Gary Brolsma is not the first guy to rocket out of anonymity on a starship of embarrassment. There was William Hung, the Hong Kong-born \"American Idol\" reject, who sang and danced so poorly he became a household name. There was Ghyslain Raza, the teenage Quebecois, who taped himself in a mock light-saber duel and is now known as the Star Wars Kid.
In July 2003, Raza's parents went so far as to sue four of his classmates, claiming they had placed the clip of him online without permission. \"Ghyslain had to endure and still endures today, harassment and derision,\" according to the lawsuit, first reported in The Globe and Mail of Toronto.
Brolsma has no plans to sue, his family said--mainly because he would have to sue himself. In fact, they wish he would bask a little in his celebrity.
\"I don't know what's wrong with him,\" his grandfather, Kalman Telkes, a Hungarian immigrant, said the other day while taking out the trash.
The question remains why two million people would want to watch a doughy guy in glasses wave his arms around online to a Romanian pop song.
\"It definitely has to be something different,\" said Tom Fulp, president and Webmaster of newgrounds.com. \"It's really time and place.\"
\"The Numa Numa dance,\" he said, sounding impressed. \"You see it and you kind of impulsively have to send it to your friends.\"
\"Make a video and become famous\"
There is no way to pinpoint the fancy of the Internet, but in an effort to gauge Brolsma's allure, the Numa Numa dance was shown to a classroom of eighth graders at Saddle Brook Middle School--the same middle school that he attended, in fact.
The students' reactions ranged from envious to unimpressed. \"That's stupid,\" one of them said. \"What else does he do?\" a second asked. A third was a bit more generous: \"I should make a video and become famous.\"
The teacher, Susan Sommer, remembered Brolsma. He was a quiet kid, she said, with a good sense of humor and a flair for technology.
\"Whenever there were computer problems, Gary and Corey would fix them for the school,\" she said.
His friends say Brolsma has always had a creative side. He used to make satirical Prozac commercials on cassette tapes, for instance. He used to publish a newspaper with print so small you couldn't read it with the naked eye.
\"He was always very out there--he's always been ambitious,\" said Frank Gallo, a former classmate. \"And he's a big guy, but he's never been ashamed.\"
Another friend, Randal Reiman, said: \"I've heard a lot of people say it's not that impressive--it doesn't have talent. But I say, Who cares?\"
These days, Brolsma shuttles between the house and his job at Staples, his family said. He is distraught, embarrassed. His grandmother, Margaret Telkes, quoted him as saying, just the other day, \"I want this to end.\"
And yet the work lives on. Fulp, the Webmaster, continues to receive online homages to the Numa Numa dance. The most recent showed what seemed to be a class of computer students singing in Romanian and, in unison, waving their hands.
Reiman figures the larger world has finally caught on to Gary Brolsma.
\"He's been entertaining us for years,\" he said, \"so it's kind of like the rest of the world is realizing that Gary can make you smile.\"
so i doubt he will appear at this year's festival :cry:

I love me some Schwagstock. They just purchased their very own venue in MO called \"Zoe\". This place is a hippie wonderland. For those of you that haven't been there, it's mystical. There is a river that runs through it and lots of cliffs, caves, and open fields as well. Before it was Zoe, it was a kid's camp that closed down. There has been speculation that it's haunted from some accident that closed the kid's camp. I think its a spook PR campaign to promote Spookstock for Halloween.
03-06-2005, 08:34 PM
amen to that. I went to three of the Shwagstocks last year and I had the time of my life each trip. The whole land is owned by the band so they hire their own friends to hlep out and be security (NO police). Do what you want, live how you want and enjoy the people and music. Great place and great times. I'll be back this year.

Are there going to be more additions? When can we expect some additions if so?

hello from crazy, here.
just wanted to apologize for any unnecessary dialogue on stage (on my part).
i understand your point(s), and it won't happen again believe you me.
i will have to describe myself as genuinely \"caught up in the whole scene\" and i promise to be a good crazy this year.
never meant to piss anybody off.
as far as the three fingers go, it is a \"W\" as in Wakarusa.
kind of a universal symbol for fun, that's all.
as far as the camera picking it up at ddbb, i just have to say that i was well, seeing more like nine fingers.
my apologies for the redundency.
once again, i look forward to seeing and partying with each and every one of you at the Waka.
thanks to all who are in support of our great gig here in Wakaland!
it really is a dream come true.
frisbee and dozha to all...
crazy john brooks [/b]
