A Surprising Return to Hookahville
Nearly ten years after he left the group, ekoostik hookah co-founder John Mullins has returned. The group has announced that the guitarist will return to the stage in the U.S. with hookah on April 28-30 at Nelson Ledges’ Blossom Blast (a month earlier he will appear with the group at the Jamm in Jamaica festival in what originally had been called Under Full Sail but now is officially ekoostik hookah). In addition, the band has confirmed that Hookahville will take place on Memorial Day Weekend at Legend Valley (the former Buckeye Lake Music Center).
As part of the announcement on the groups web site, Mullin explains, Pigs fly, theres ice-skating in hell, and monkeys might fly outta my posterior any minute. Id never have thought it possible that I would once again be a member of ekoostik Hookah but here we are. Full circle. For me the timing couldnt be better. I couldnt have considered such a big commitment just one year ago. The rock gods have smiled upon me and I am gonna make the most of it…. Some questions about the ghosts of the past must be answered. The stories are out there. Some true, some ridiculous, some both. There have been times when I wasnt fit to be on the stage. Remembering those times is just as important as not repeating them. Professionalism and devotion to the music are the standard. The fans deserve it and quite frankly, the band demands it. Not only of me but also of themselves. It is in this spirit that I am happy to return.
