Suwannee Music Park opens to record crowd on Thursday

Jack Skellington, himself, could not have planned Hulaween any better. This year marks the 3rd annual Suwannee Hulaween. Over 21,000 people flocked to North Florida’s Spirit Of The Suwannee Music Park over Halloween weekend to celebrate Hulaween.

Showing up fashionably late to a party is never a bad idea; unless EOTO, Dumpstaphunk, & Joe Russo’s Almost Dead is playing the pre-party.

There were no tricks this Thursday of Hulaween, ‘twas all treats. JRAD is fueled by Scott Metzger, Tommy Hamilton, Dave Dreiwitz, Marco Benevento, & Joe Russo. This highly talented quintet brings a young GD energy, bringing a fresh sound to the old favorites.

As darkness fell the percussionists, Jason Hann and Michael Travis of The String Cheese Incident threw down a pre-party set for the ages. The duo never ceases to bring a party of monstrous sounds.

Next, some of the funkiest guys from the Crescent City, Dumpstaphunk led the party into the night. For the pre-party finale, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead. This highly talented quintet brings a young GD energy, and fresh sound to the old favorites. In my opinion, it’s currently the hottest Dead on the scene.
