Ekoostik Hookah

Hey all,
Has anyone heard of Ekoostik Hookah? They are a great jam band based out of Ohio. I'm going to there NYE show this year, super excited.

I was just wondering if anyone else has heard of them. They play big venues in Ohio, have a huge fanbase in the Midwest, and even played with Bob Weir & Ratdog, but it seems like no one has ever heard of them.

Give them a listen, they are great:

I saw them in September 1991 at the campground/waterpark place near Richfield Coliseum. Good fun, college-y sounding jam band, but nothing I would have expected to be touring nationally just a few years later. Left me with a vaguely WSP-ish vibe... HUGE fun at those Richfield shows.

Anyone familiar with the waterpark campground? I wanna say it was called ... Dover Lake? Could be way off... I think I might have also stayed there after Phish Blossom Center show of 1995, but the Dead scene there in 1991 was EPIC.

The first night there was the most amazing huge drum circle that I have ever taken part in, and I have been to two national Rainbow Gatherings! I think Hookah played on an afternoon, before folks left for the lot

I've heard of Ekoostik Hookah but I've never heard them play. Are they a cover band or do they play originals? How 'bout Grateful Dead do they play Dead?

I heard that they played Cold Rain and Snow at their halloween festival but I think they play mainly originals. Their bass player and lead guitar player used to be in a GD cover band called Supplication but I dont think their stuff is on the LMA. Three words, SFS

I really really enjoy Ekoostik Hookah. They are an excellent band with an excellent family. I have met many great friends and my beautiful wife from following this band. They have numerous originals and throw in a nice cover now and then. As far as covering some DEAD...here is a cover they did at their memorial day weekend Hookahville festival.

Now please don't compare them to the Dead because NOTHING is comparable to the Dead.
Here is an original from the same Hookahville with J. Popper and Chan from Blues Traveler....

Heck here is the link to the show if you want to check it out.

:smile: Like Derek, I'm a huge EH fan as well, living in Ohio makes it nice cause they are Ohio Grown and play around here alot. I would recommend everyone to see a show sometime or another to see what they think. I believe Sweney, the guitar player, is one of the best out there playing. If you'd like to check out a video of a James Brown cover they've just recently done, check this out...

Don't remember that.

But I do have something for all of you...

We at Yurple Bliss have created an incredible DVD of Fall Hookahville 9.2.06, and it is online for download now, FREE. You will need a Bittorrent client in order to download it - if you don't have one you can get one and find out how to use it at <a href="http://dessent.net/btfaq/">BitTorrent</a>

Here is the BT link to the DVD, this is disk one, disk two will be available soon:

<a href="http://bcpub.com/hookahville26/cdrom1.torrent">Set 1 EH 9.2.06</a>

(thanks Bryan for the seed).


Also repost if you have Hookah friends on your friends list, the more people on the torrent, the faster the download and it benefits everyone. Please try and leave it up after you have finished downloading so folks can upload off of you.
