Rich Rivkin hosted the show dubbed “Woodstock Revival” in the Great Gatsby-esque Vanderbilt Museum in Centerport. The day was dedicated to the sounds of Jimi, Janis and the Dead- the soundtrack of an entire generation. These legends were remembered by modern artists like Half Step, Jellyband, Milagro and Dragonfly.
Woodstock Revival was about more than just music. The day had a beautiful Bohemian feel. The Vanderbilt’s lawn was packed with fathers playing catch with their sons, strangers throwing a Frisbee with each other. There were hundreds of people with smiles brimming from ear to ear enjoying life. It was home to a group of painters, photographers, and families enjoying a Sunday picnic. While moving through the crowd we noticed an artist named Justin C Mayer sitting in a foldable reclining chair sketching away on his pad. He reproduced a portion of the Vanderbilt Museum’s façade.

This is the 30th revival since 2001. We were told that many of the faces are familiar but new ones keep popping up. The new faces (like I was yesterday) were greeted with friendly hellos and fantastic vibes. For any music lover these events bring us back to our roots.
