Antsy and Edgar Cruz at Harlow’s in Sacramento tonight

Can’t make it to Woodflock this weekend but live in California?  How about a trip to Sacramento to catch Antsy McClain with his good friend Edgar Cruz for a night of Flamenco and Flamingo. Antsy loves this place. Cool vibe. Good sound. Good people. Edgar Cruz will be joining Antsy at Woodflock Friday, May 27, but if you can’t make it to Red Bluff, come out and see Antsy and Edgar at Harlow’s for a musical feast.

And this just in: Loose Bruce Wandmayer is joining Antsy! Now anything can happen!

WOODFLOCK 2016 FINAL CALL

Woodflock’s 6th Year Will be Better Than Ever
Woodflock

Above is this year’s t-shirt design only available to Woodflockers, drawn up by Antsy hizself.

Well, it’s almost here! Just a few more days and Woodflock will be upon us. Antsy has often said it’s the most fun we have all year. The gathering of people make this event the most rewarding thing we do as a community. We have a lot of friends helping us along the way, and Antsy, the band and all of the Flamingoheads are truly grateful for them and their tireless efforts to make Woodflock memorable and meaningful to all those in attendance.
If you haven’t signed up for a cabin, but want to, don’t delay. We only have a few left. We’ve had such an outpouring of good mojo concerning our Red Bluff, California Woodflock, that we are looking to Franchise it. Ha. Well, that may be too big a word for it. We’re looking at a location near Nashville, Tennessee to host Woodflock East in the Fall of every year. We’ll keep you posted, and as usual, your feedback is appreciated. Any ideas you might have for locations, or how to make the event be the best we can offer, will be appreciated.
Antsy and the Troubs are looking forward to seeing you all again, hanging out, catching up, and sharing our journeys along this winding highway we call life.

SPACES ARE FILLING UP FAST. This is shaping up to be our best Woodflock ever. Apparently if you do something 6 times, you’re bound to get it right, huh? Woodflock is our favorite event all year. The best part comes in meeting and hanging out with folks who all have the same things in common: a love of music, a sense of humor, a desire to live authentically and “enjoy the ride.” If you’re one of those people, you should join us!
Just click HERE to get on board!
Woodflock is filling up! Space is limited. Join us!
Of course, Antsy and the guys will be bringing their usual music and humor with them. They’ll be playing songs off their latest album, as well as the old favorites. And Sunday night’s show is an ALL REQUEST NIGHT, as we do every year. You make the set list.
They’ll be performing every night around the fire, as usual. Also throwing it in will be Antsy’s dear friend, guitar master, Edgar Cruz on Friday night, the uniquely talented Sourdough Slim with multi-instrumentalist Bob Armstrong on Saturday night, and Sunday will be a few creativity sessions with Antsy and his friends.

Every morning gets started with the wonderful Hilary Nicholls and her dobro-playing husband, Bruce Wandmayer. We are also offering Yoga hosted by Dave Emery this year directly following the daily meditation. Meal time will be fabulous, as always. Also, our friend John Chips will be bringing his Monster Grill with him for us to enjoy special meat and veggies smoked to succulent perfection.

Did You Take a Photo of Antsy in 2014?

Antsy has spent a good part of 2014 performing across the United States in solo acts, in shows with Tommy Emmanuel, in shows with Edgar Cruz and a number of shows with the Troubs.

Many of you, his Flamingohead family and friends, have gotten your trusty little photographic devices out and snagged a shot or two of his shows or got group photos with him.  We have grabbed a few of them off of Facebook and Instagram and posted them in articles about his tour.

However, as 2014 is coming to a close soon, we are putting out the call for as many photos as we can get from this year.  Sumoflam, the trusty web guy for Antsy (yes, that’s me!!), is planning to do a photo/slideshow of the year’s events, as it was a banner year for our friend and favorite singer/songwriter/storyteller dude Antsy McClain.

If you have some shots or videos you want to share, please send them along to me via email at sumoflam@sumoflam.biz.  If they are videos and too big for email, shoot them up to Dropbox and share them with me so I can download them.

 

Beginning in December and for part of 2015 Antsy will be making appearances on PBS around the country and many new Future Flamingoheads of America will be hitting the website to learn more about Antsy, his music, his art and his musical friends. We want to be sure they get a GOOD look!

Make sure to include in the emails the name, date and location of the show (or event such as Woodflock) and the photographer’s name so we can provide the appropriate credits. Following are a few samples of what we have from this year.
