Summertime is here, the 2023 festival season is in full swing. Coming back to Montage Mountain for four days of music, community and pure joy is The Peach Music Festival.

The mountains, the water slides, the vibes surrounding you, are all part of the magical experience on the mountain.

The four days starting on Thursday, June 30th and continuing until Sunday, July 2nd, will feature three stages with continuous flowing throughout the day and into the early hours of the morning. Whether you are there to check out your favorite group or discover new music, there truly is music and art for all types of listeners.

Four Acts To Check Out!

Les Claypool’s Flying Frog Brigade: The triumphant return of Les Claypool’s early 2000’s project is back in full force! Known for his bass work with Primus & Oysterhead, it’s a treat for the legend to dust off this epic project this summer.

The rotating casts of members this time around will be: Sean Lennon (Guitar/Vocals), Harry Waters (Keys), Paolo Baldi (Drums), and Mike Dillon (Percussion)

Trouble No More: In August 1973, The Allman Brothers Band released Brothers & Sisters. On the heels of its fiftieth anniversary some of the most iconic players in the scene will bring the album to life. Many of the members of Trouble No More have ties to The Allman Brothers Band, whether it be family or sharing the stage.

The ensemble features: Brandon “Taz” Niederauer (Guitar/Vocals), Daniel Donato (Guitar/Vocals), Dylan Niederauer (Bass Guitar), Jack Ryan (Drums), Lamar Williams Jr. (Vocals), Nikki Glaspie (Drums), Peter Levin (Keys), and Roosevelt Collier (Pedal Steel Guitar)

Duane Betts: Guitar playing is in Duane’s blood. Being the son of Dickey Betts, co-founder of The Allman Brothers Band, he learned at an early age to strap on a guitar and turn it up. Being on the scene for decades, and surrounded by some world class musicians, Duane has made a name for himself. In 2022, Duane called on his good friends Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi, to record “Wild & Precious Life”, at Swamp Raga Studios. A mix of blues, country, and folk, Betts brings to the table a very heartfelt studio album.

Duane will bring along a stellar backing group that includes the likes of: Johnny Stachela (Guitar), Berry Duane Oakley (Bass), John Ginty (Keyboards), and Tyler Greenwell (Drummer)

The Sweet Lillies: Since 2013, The Sweet Lillies, has been an act that has been growing and evolving, expanding their horizons and digging deep into their songwriting and musicianship. Pitch-perfect harmonic levels, along with their strong lyrical presence, the quartet always bring a vibrant live performance. Bending genres from bluegrass all the way to hip hop sprinkled in.

The headliners will include two sets by experimental jam band Goose the opening night, veteran rockers My Morning Jacket, Keystone states own, Ween and blues, roots rockers Tedeschi Trucks Band closing it out the four day extravaganza.
