Happy Birthday Wavy Gravy

Wavy Gravy (Hugh Romney, Jr.) is 85 years old today.  Most of you will remember him from running the Hog Farm which fed the masses @ Woodstock.

A cultural icon, yes, but maybe just a little bit out there for my taste.  His son was born in 1971 and Wavy named him, "Howdy Do-Good Gravy Tomahawk Truckstop Romney".  As soon as he was old enough to do so, Howdy changed his name to Jordan Romney.  Who wouldn't change their name??

@lee. Thank you Lee. I enjoyed the video on this Sunday morning. The Bob Weir song was delightful. Horns and upright bass. Really reminded me of something by Chicago.

Mr. Gravy also founded (with several others) the Seva Foundation an international organization that brings sight restoration programs to under-served communities.

This is an unusual band and sound but I like it. Sending this Grateful Dead fan Wavy Gravy some new music for his birthday 🎂🎉

Part acid test music, part jazzy jamband stuff - haven’t liked a vid so much in ages - people of all ages liking it so much - then at the end the band members departing in silence

Wavy Gravy would have adored this - it shows why music is for the betterment of the human race - really special, thanks for that🤙

@robertdee:  I agree with Stephen, nice video.  Dick Dale meets Third World rhythms?

FYI, they extended the viewing through May 24th so you can still watch it for free for a few more days.
