Jazz Fest on the Suwannee

Set in perhaps the finest natural music venue in all the South land a mere 463 miles from New Orleans, the Bear Creek Festival rolled out it’s lineup a couple months ago and as fall grows near, the annual Suwannee funk fest is now less than three months away. With Fest (Oct. 14-16) and (Oct. 28-30) also going down this fall, the festival options along the Gulf Coast and across the Florida Panhandle this fall are aplenty. For Bear Creek tickets, go here.

Over the past few years, he has also contributed steadily to JamBase and Relix Magazine. Recently, Hodges moved on to L.A. where Abita Beer is hard to find, costs about $6 if located and impromptu parading in the streets will most likely get you arrested on the spot.
