Hippiefest 2011 celebrates peace and the power of flowers in a musical love-in showcasing a dream team of rock 'n' roll living legends. The lineup of hit paraders includes Dave Mason, a founding member of Traffic, and former Grand Funk Railroad frontman and “Rock Patriot” Mark Farner, who satiates fans with chugging anthems and tearful sonnets to Spiro Agnew. Felix Cavaliere’s Rascals, beloved for hits such as “Good Lovin’’” and “Groovin’,” disavows squares with mellow conveyance, and Gary Wright, known as The Dream Weaver, key-tars hearts with hypnotizing jams. Filling out the magic omnibus, Rick Derringer, the staple-maker of “Rock and Roll Hoochie-Coo” and “I Am A Real American,” lights up Hippiefest with fist-pumping thumpers that celebrate the freedom to make gravy.
At Arena Theatre, nobody sits farther than 60 feet from the show. Most concertgoers who’ve squinted their ways through major concerts at other venues can attest that the in-the-round seating arrangement and revolving stage are causes for celebration. And the stars have noticed. Since the 1970s, the state-of-the-art venue has attracted a long list of legendary performers including Willie Nelson, Tom Jones, and Aretha Franklin. While their golden vocal chords ring through the stellar acoustics, fans sink into comfy seats, savor a flashy light system, and discard their unnecessary opera glasses.
