‘Stonehenge’ at Stonehenge

Though now in its 17th year, the Stonehenge Music Festival continues to book strong emerging artists each summer. This year was no different, with U-Melt, Juggling Suns, the Breadbox Band, Natural Breakdown, Unexplained Bacon, BuzzUniverse and several other rising stars on the bill for the annual Kellyburg, PA event. New Jerseys the Breadbox Band nodded to their surroundings by busting out the first cover of Spinal Tap’s ‘Stonehenge’ in the festivals history. Scene veterans the Juggling Suns also played the cover game, running through the Bee Gees ‘You Should Be Dancin,’‘ Weens ‘Voodoo Lady,’ Dee Lites Groove Is In the Heart,’ Widespread Panics ‘Tall Boy and Bobby Lee Rodgers ‘Body In the Lake.’ The group also played a version of ‘Spring Water’ which featured guest appearances by U-Melts Rob Salzer and Zac Lasher. U-Melt returned the favor during its set, inviting out Juggling Suns guitarist Mark Diomede for ‘Human Compass.’ The group also brought out Reckoning keyboardist Mike Katzman and guitarist Kevin Griffen for the U-Melt original ‘Carne.’
New Jersey band BuzzUniverse played two shows in two states Saturday, opening Saturdays Stonehenge festivities with a set that featured an appearance by the Breadbox Bands Jordan Simms on vocals and keyboard for ‘In the Sun’ and ‘Up the Mountain. The group then trekked up to Pulaski, NY, for a midnight performance at The Gathering IV. Jeff Bujak, of Northampton MA’s band Somebodys Closet, who performed at the festival the following day, then welcomed the group by playing the Fender Rhodes on ‘The Rock’ and another version of ‘In the Sun.’
