Anyone who attended Bunbury this year would agree that the lineup was full of bands that were bursting with talent. While all of the bands fit under the Bunbury umbrella, there were several that really stood out as good fits for the Festival. They cover a wide gamut of musical genres, as well as a wide distance from around the country. Whatever their style and origin, these bands had excellent performances and really helped to push the Festival into the success that it was.
Jane Decker played a solid set at the Lawn Stage, attracting a modest crowd. While normally not going the acoustic route, she was determined to play at Bunbury and being forced to play acoustic wasn’t going to stop her. Grabbing a friend to play guitar, Decker sang her heart out to her audience, excited that she won a bet on whether 100 people would show up to her show or not. Listening to this local gem was certainly worth it, and her bubbly, energetic personality made it all the more worthwhile. She showed equal excitement about her upcoming album, which will no doubt be fantastic. Routinely thanking the audience for their applause and attendance, it seems only natural to return the favor and thank her for putting on such a great set. Read more

The Bunbury Music Festival entered it’s third consecutive year along the banks of the Ohio river in Cincinnati, Ohio with winning results. Friday, July 11, had many shining moments, including the bump and grind party rock of Bowling Green, Kentucky’s favorite sons, Cage the Elephant. Touring behind the entrancing masterpiece recording, 2013’s Melophobia, Cage the Elephant heated up the stage by slamming into the hardcore jams of “Spiderhead” and “Come a Little Closer.” Lead singer Matthew Shultz crowd surfed across the front of the stage as he encouraged Bunbury’s revelers to “have fun.” Cincinnati and Granville, Ohio’s Black Owls made a lasting impression with their riveting performance on Bunbury’s lawn stage, covering Harry Nilsson’s “Jump into the Fire” for an enthusiastic and sweaty crowd. Los Angeles’ Fitz and the Tantrums won over the main stage following with the peppered pop confections, “Out of My League” and “The Walker” from 2013’s radio friendly project, More Than Just a Dream.
