Post ABB to close (as usual)
I am tickled that ABB will be closing the Peach stage each night. For those that dont really know.....this is the ABBs' baby. Its no simple twist of fate that they headline every year. I wanted to break it to the Furthur people earlier, but I figured they would find out soon enough. Cant wait to see ABB, Furthur, and everyone else.

As an ABB fan first and foremost, this is the way it should be. I thought there could have been a chance Furthur would have closed Friday, but doubted it. This the Allman's festival, that should never be forgotten or understated.

There is a lot I like about Wanee has become with the added days (it was just two for the first few years) & bigger bands like Furthur or Panic. But if I could put my wish list together now for 2013, it would be to go a little old school as it were, focusing primarily on "the family". Give us:

Two nights of the ABB
Two nights of Mule
Separate Tedeschi Trucks Band, Derek Trucks Band, & Susan Tedeschi sets
Solo, Acoustic Warren Haynes
Oteil & the Peacemakers (or Lee Boys)
Jaimoe's Jasssz Band
Scrapomatic
Devon Allman's Honeytribe
Royal Southern Brotherhood (Devon's new band with Cyril Neville, Mike Zito, & Yonrico Scott)
Jack Pearson
Col. Bruce
Bonobos Convergence / Yeti Trio
Chuck Leavell
Tommy Talton
Flannel Church
(& in my dreams, Dickey Betts & Great Southern)
etc.

It would not be as "big" a festival, which might keep the crowds done, but to a ABB purist would be fun.

That all being said, as long as Wanee simply has the ABB at the core, it is all good.

I like the way you think PGator, Great minds think alike :!: 8-)
