Road to Camp Bisco – Steve Learson of The Indobox
Where there is a unique festival there are unique fans and Camp Bisco is certainly one of a kind. The traditional format of a North American festival includes a jam-band, a bearded jam-band, a nostalgic roots reggae band, a Grateful Dead tribute band, and that band that refuses to stop playing until they cut the power mid guitar solo.
I have attended every Camp Bisco since 2006 and I always look forward to enjoying the alternative sonic experience. Genres mix from electronic-jam-band to hip-hop to drum-and-bass and dubstep. This distinctive genre selection breeds bizarre and extraordinary fans who have great taste and an appetite for eclectic music. The summer festival scene is already counterculture and antiestablishment but Camp Bisco fans land on the outskirts of that idea.
When I perform with The Indobox at Bisco I feel a heightened level of energy. Fans scream louder, dance harder, and demand the very best. I walk off stage shaking and sweating every time. The Indian Lookout Country Club where the festival has made its home since 2007 is beautiful and unique in its own right. Having bikers run your security is not just cool but it fuels the antiestablishment flame. I can’t wait to cruise up to Mariaville, NY this July and rock harder than I ever have before.
See you there,
