Both Col. Bruce Hampton and Blueground Undergrass have huge followings in the Southeastern portion of the United States. To see these two veteran acts unite for a concert within the relatively intimate confines of Skipper's Smokehouse, as they did on July 20, surely was viewed as a delicious treat by jam band fans. Hampton has been recording and performing music for 45 years, and The Quark Alliance, his latest outfit, has been making waves everywhere East of the Mississippi of late. Blueground Undergrass was reborn and revitalized by its 2006 set Faces, which features a sterling cover of the Grateful Dead's Black Muddy River.
