One of the most talked-about highlights in the wake of the annual Summer Camp Music Festival this Memorial Day has been groove rock quartet Aqueous‘s Thursday, 5/25 sunset performance. The set was the first of two full-band slots over the course of the festival (guitarist Mike Gantzer also joined Umphrey’s McGee member Ryan Stasik and Kris Myers for a tribute to Green Day‘s pop-punk classic Dookie), and the Buffalo natives made it count, offering up some incredible improv as well as a couple of very special surprise guests. The previously-planned Dookie set turned out to not be the only Aqueous/Umphrey’s crossover of the weekend, as Aqueous was joined by Umphrey’s keyboardist Joel Cummins as well as moe. drummer Vinnie Amico for a run through Steely Dan‘s 1976 hit “Kid Charlemagne.”You can check out Joel and Vinnie’s guest appearance with Aqueous at Summer Camp below, via Aqueous’s YouTube page:Vinnie Amico, Joel Cummins, and four members of Aqueous are set to take part in the mix-and-match musical mayhem of Brooklyn Comes Alive this coming weekend in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
