“Between 7:30 and 8 p.m. Big Fat Buddha started to play, before they did I spoke with a few of them. Space Alien Pirate Timmy Haren on drums and back-up vocals, said “best amphitheater we ever played at!” On the bass and back-up vocals was Captain Brad Fidel, who remarked, “Love Hope, most beautiful spot in the world, played 35 shows, this is one of the best spots that we ever played at!” Percussion was done by Senor Jeff Arms , he stated, “Playing here in one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever played at, pretty special playing by the river. Brings festival to another level with community, food and good music!”Lead guitarist and vocalist, Hombre Matt Brenna, was busy doing last minute equipment checks, so I didn’t get to speak with him. With a bluesy-reggae sound, Big Fat Buddha had everyone dancing, and jiving by well into the night.”
