This was one of our most popular events to date!"

"If you are looking for a band that plays the classic music of Woodstock as it deserves to be played, it is my pleasure to  recommend “Back To The Garden 1969.”   They delivered an exciting musical journey back to the late 1960s.  Combining superb harmonies with flawless musicianship, there are more than a few moments when you can imagine how it must have felt to actually be at Woodstock (thankfully, minus the mud, rain and bad drugs). Whoever gives them an opportunity to play will be well rewarded."
