Last weekend's 7th annual AURA Music & Arts Festival featured many of the jam scene's hottest acts, with unforgettable performances from the likes of The Disco Biscuits, Thievery Corporation, Snarky Puppy, The Werks, ALO, Turkuaz, The Heavy Pets, Pink Talking Fish, and many more. This year's festival officially kicked off on Thursday, with the final performance coming from The Disco Biscuits on Saturday night. Over the course of the weekend, Grateful Dead covers came early and often.
As The Disco Biscuits took the stage at 11:00 PM on Saturday night, they were joined by their old friend Tom Hamilton, who had just finished up a set with his band, American Babies. Considering Hamilton's role as lead guitarist for Billy & the Kids, as well as Joe Russo's Almost Dead, it came as no surprise when the Biscuits opened up with a lengthy Dead jam, ultimately leading into a killer take on "Scarlet Begonias" > "I Know You Rider". Thankfully, Cheesehead Productions was in attendance all weekend, giving us all a chance to relive some of the most memorable moments from AURA 2016.
