Music Review: Camp Creek

We slept in the Old 78 vending booth as friends and family were taking up the camper. There was a lot of wind and with the amount of tent and tarp in our vicinity I caught what I call some Wormtown sleep. One minute sleep, wake up, one minute sleep, wake up, repeat. So I got up in the 8 AM hour or so just tied of the battle. I unzipped the front of the booth tent and was hanging out, when a kindly bearded gentlemen came up to me, handed me a flier, and said that his band Creamery Station was playing at 10A, would have free coffee and a creamery station. Brilliant! So I caught my first show with Creamery Station shortly thereafter!

The band is interesting, full six piece with drums, keys, guitars, mandolin, and harmonica with several guys providing vocals. They played crowd friendly covers and some originals. Garcia Band’s My Sisters and My Brothers, Deal, an alternate take on Railroad Blues with which I wasn’t formerly familiar, Levon Helm’s Hurricane and others. Interestingly the band is made up of two generations of dudes- three guys who appear to be about 25-30 years old, and three guys who appear to be hovering somewhere around 50 years old. There is no separation necessarily of the old guys are better, or the young guys have more energy- they blend together really well and are a perfect supplement to the Camp Creek vibe- with Max Creek having their own duo-generational reality going.
