GrassRoots at 25 Thursday

 There was much excitement and anticipation for Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue this year, in fact Gail mentioned it enough that I even took notice.  Scheduling wasn't in her favor though and she wasn't able to catch it due to an unavoidable work obligation.  From even before it started I got what she was talking about as most of the crowd seemed like they knew what was coming.
It was one of the most exciting sets in my 24 years of the festival.  The bass player was celebrating his birthday, and after they were done he happened to walk by our hang-out and joined us for awhile when we started singing "Happy Birthday" to him.
That's the kind of stuff that's been happening for 25 years at GrassRoots.
