Great lineup, great price

Last year was such a great day that I've been looking forward to this one ever since.

Hey, thanks, Eddie. Of course, we're hoping this one will be at least as great!

song question

line-up looks great-these are some of my favorite bands. what do you mean by animal songs?

Talking Animals

I agree--it really IS a great line-up, the product of collaborating with the ever-fabulous Flee. As for what we mean by animal songs, at last year's Talking Animals Festival it ran the gamut from "Talk To The Animals" & Beatles tunes, to "Boris The Spider" & "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," to several terrific original animal songs, etc. It's a lot of fun!
