Bonnaroo

Firecracker has played everywhere from street corners, secret speakeasies, jazz festivals, & swing-and-swill dance halls, to Bonnaroo and the Kennedy Center. They've returned to the 20's -- as in the 1920's, give or take a few decades -- on their fine new collection of songs from the Teens through today, centered around their great Dixieland and New Orleans jazz heroes. Album release show Saturday the 14th at The Mothlight.

Updates from Joe and Rob at Bonnaroo

Jun 17, 2013

06/18/13: We are back home! After a long day of travel Monday, we returned safe and sound with smiles on our faces and the past weekend's adventures still in our minds.

Sunday morning we awoke to flood watches after a night of heavy rain. There was standing water all over the festival grounds and more rain on the way. We packed our belongings and walked about half a mile to the point where shuttles picked up folks to return them to their parking lot at a nearby hotel.
