Also, Jomeokee Fest is proud to present two very special sets that bring together some of the country’s best players of funk, rock, jam and bluegrass. Jomeokee fans will be treated not only to an all-star bluegrass jam, but also to a set from the Everyone Orchestra. Conducted by Matt Butler, this special incarnation of the EO will feature Jimmy Herring (Widespread Panic), George Porter Jr., Melvin Seals (Jerry Garcia Band), Jeff Sipe, Al Schnier & Vinnie Amico (moe.), Michael Kang (The String Cheese Incident), Jennifer Hartswick (Trey Anastasio Band), and more!
