Jamband Spotlight: Sound Tribe Sector 9
Words By Greg Molitor (ReMIND Photography)
Sound Tribe Sector 9 is back! The band’s future was looking a bit cloudy after bassist David Murphy announced on January 19 that he would be undergoing skin cancer treatment, but thankfully, he has recovered and will be delivering a ton of music to the STS9 faithful all summer long. This is excellent news for fans of the band and the scene as a whole as STS9 has undoubtedly become one of the most beloved and in-demand acts on the jam festival circuit...
This spring and summer, the electro jammers will be hitting the festival scene hard and often at venues such as Summer Camp, Wakarusa, All Good, Bonnaroo, and Hangout Music Festival. The band has also announced its own Re:GENERATION festival taking place at Horning’s Hideout in Oregon from June 23-26. In honor of the band’s triumphant return to hosting Re:GENERATION, I’ve provided three performances from STS9’s first Re:GENERATION festival that was held in North Carolina in 2007. With a new lease on its existence, STS9 is surely going to be producing some inspired grooves over the upcoming months. This is one band you shouldn’t sleep on during 2011 considering the turmoil its faced so far this year, so if you get the chance to see Sound Tribe Sector 9 this spring or summer, take the opportunity and hit up one of its shows. I have a feeling that the STS9 will be cherishing its time onstage more than ever before from this point forward, and that is great news for the entire scene.
