TULALIP – The first Revival Jam Music and Art Festival will be held Sept. 6-7 at a private property near the water in Tulalip.

The new grassroots effort will feature 11 local bands and 13 DJs.

Sean Keck, whose band plays at 11 p.m. that Friday, called it a mini version of the annual “Summer Meltdown” in Darrington with a maximum of 250 people.

Keck said his band, which has been around for 20 years, is similar to the group Phish, one he’s seen 46 times all over the country since 1996. While they mostly play original tunes they plan to cover a Phish song along with Jimi Hendrix’s “All Along the Watchtower” at Jam Revival.

“We’re going to bust out several covers. We like to play as many genres as possible every show so they don’t all sound the same,” Keck said, adding that includes rock, bluegrass, blues, reggae and more.

Keck said people will enjoy the event “because there’s no wasted time. It’s nonstop music. Plus the craziest light show.”

Bands will play every two hours, with DJ’s playing music in-between during bands setting up and tearing down.

Bands that Friday are: Nu-ance at 7 p.m., Fat Starfish at 9, The Sean Kech Project at 11, and Oso at 1 a.m.

On the DJ Stage that night are: Bob Weaven at 6 p.m., Arthur Arthur at 8, Max Gain at 10 and Cauliflowa at midnight.

That Saturday, bands start at noon with Tha Wurm, Ian Ayers plays at 2 p.m., Nu-ance at 4, Stay Grounded at 6, Soul United All Stars at 8, Take It To Space at 10, Cytrus at midnight and Tryin’ at 2 a.m. that early Sunday morning.

DJ’s that day are Hambone at 1 p.m., Ralph Reign at 3 and again at 11, Minhimal at 5, Algorhthm at 7, Digital Bloom at 9, Bucket at 1 a.m. that Sunday, followed at 3 a.m. by Quintanamus.

There also will be food and art vendors.

Cost is $25, or at the gate $30. Those under age 14 are free. Parking is limited so please car-pool.

Camping is encourage at $10 a day. A limited number of RVs are allowed $30 per night.
