The Connecticut band Deep Banana Blackout has been, not surprisingly, a fixture at their local Gathering of the Vibes Festival for years now, and their NOLA-style funk always inspires the local crowd. About the only clue you got from this set that it was the band’s 20th anniversary of their founding was how on point they were, maintaining a tight, dance-worthy groove against the stifling midday heat. Though truncated by the festival format, this set had at least one element that was likely a first for a DBB set — a wedding proposal, delivered by a fan right after “Hear My Song.” It was the kind of crowd-pleasing, heartfelt moment that gives you a clue why the band, like this festival they are so emblematic of, has endured and thrived.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V microphones from the official taper’s section. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
