Mountain Music Festival (June 2, 3 and 4, 2022), hosted by ACE Adventure Resort in Oak Hill, WV, has announced their 2022 Artist Lineup featuring Galactic, Cory Wong, TAUK PAPER SCISSORS!, Ripe, Big Something and more. Over 30 bands will play on three stages including Doom Flamingo, Spafford, The Motet, Moon Hooch, The Nth Power, Litz, and more. This destination music festival in the New River Gorge National Park allows participants to vacation at an adventure resort in West Virginia while being immersed in the atmosphere of a music festival.
Making their second Mountain Music Festival appearance is New Orleans funk powerhouse Galactic. History doesn’t stand still. It impacts, influences, and inspires the ebb and flow of the future by informing the present. Galactic draw on 25 years together in order to progress with each performance and subsequent record. After 10 albums, over 2,000 gigs, and tens of millions of streams, the proud New Orleans, LA quintet have kept the torch burning through five U.S. presidential regimes, the turn-of-the- century, Hurricane Katrina, a Global Pandemic, and a much-anticipated recovery. They’re the rare collective who can support Juvenile on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, contribute music to a blockbuster soundtrack such as Now You See Me, and light up the stages of Coachella, Bonnaroo, and New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival (a staggering 22 times).
Check out last year's MMF official recap video here:
Cory Wong fashions himself “a hype man,” first and foremost. Living up to this classification, he slings a Stratocaster and hurls “dad jokes” from the stage with the same panache, poise, and power. He lent his talents to television programs such as The Voice at the dawn of his career. After an impromptu meeting at the weekly jam hosted by Prince’s rhythm section he crossed paths with Vulfpeck who welcomed him as a frequent collaborator and member of the band. Solidifying a fruitful partnership, the group named their most popular instrumental track “Cory Wong,” in tribute. Lighting up the stage in the band everywhere from Red Rocks Amphitheatre to Madison Square Garden, he remains a cornerstone of Vulfpeck’s storied gigs.
TAUK PAPER SCISSORS! is bringing something truly special to Mountain Music Festival this June. This super group features Karl Denson, Kanika Moore plus more special guests to be announced. Karl Denson is the frontman for his band Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and also plays sax in The Rolling Stones. Kanika Moore is the powerhouse vocalist behind Doom Flamingo and is ready to wow the Mountain Music Festival crowd with her influence on this all-star cast of musicians. More talented musicians will be added to this group as we get closer to the event.
