The third annual Peacestock festival took place at Freedom Square in Troy earlier this month. In addition to all the free BBQ, henna tattoos and lots of fun, there was, of course, plenty of free music to be soaked up during the day-long fest.
Among the many performers throughout the day were the Andrew Wheeler Band, Maurizio, the Forever Young Band, Doctor Magnum and Eric Lewis, all capped off with a magnificent headlining performance by Consider the Source. Featuring Gabriel Marin (double-neck guitar), John Ferrara (bass) and Jeff Mann (drums/percussion), the power trio blew through a set of what they call “progressive sci-fi Middle Eastern fusion,” and, well, that’s as good a description as any.
