Perpetual Groove will celebrateÂ Amberland XI Music and Arts Festival, their annual Memorial Day weekend festival, on May 25th – 27th, 2012. The three-day event returns to Cherokee Farms in LaFayette, GA. Festival hosts Perpetual Groove headline the weekend with additional performances from some of their favorite artists including Moon Taxi, The Heavy Pets, Consider the Source, and Under the Porch.
â€œIt started off as a backyard party,â€ explains guitarist and lead vocalist Brock Butler, â€œand we take pride in maintaining that original enthusiasm and preserving the intimacy that makes it so special. Amberland fans take this time every year not only to enjoy the music, but also to reunite with friends and family.â€
Camaraderie and good humor guide Perpetual Groove to create some of the unique festival activities that their fans have grown to love. This year, attendees are invited to dress in costume for each of the festivalâ€™s theme nights as well as take part in Amberlandâ€™s inaugural â€œPerpinâ€™ and Potluckâ€ festivity on Saturday night. Following tradition since the very first festival, Brock Butler will perform a two-hour Sunday morning acoustic set known as Brockfast. And to keep the mind, body and spirit aligned, Amberland XI offers Saturday and Sunday morning yoga sessions.
Tickets to Amberland XI are available online for $75 plus service fees through the Amberland website and Eventbrite ticketing service at http://amberland2012-eblast.ev
Amberland will celebrate its 11th annual event with the return of keyboardist Matt McDonald, who took a hiatus from the band in 2008 to focus on his growing family. Mattâ€™s return signals a new era for the collective whose musical improvisation skills are defining element in their compositions. Pulling from jazz, neo-psychedelia, electronica, RnB and progressive rock, PGroove (as their fans affectionately refer to them) are a highly proficient group of musicians that fluidly lead their audiences through various moods and genres.
