For whiskey connoisseurs and those that are in the know on the music scene, the Jameson Dylan Best Fest will be a “who’s who” in the entertainment industry event this November 11-12th at Bowery Ballroom in New York City. The New York Times described The Best Fest as “one the most jubilant events of the year,” and Rolling Stone touted it as “an experience that is equal parts concert and celebration.”
The Dylan Fest was the birthplace of The Best Fests that now spans across San Francisco, New York, Austin, and Los Angeles, and also includes the Petty Fest and Stones Fest. Since it began, The Best Fest concert series has become a New York tradition and with 100% of sales proceeds going to Sweet Relief, a charity dedicated to healing musicians in need, it has raised more than $100,000 for the cause.
The evening will celebrate the music of Bob Dylan featuring Patrick Carney of The Black Keys, Doyle Bramhall II, Jason Isbell, Dhani Harrison, Erika Wennerstrom of Heartless Bastards, Elvis Perkins, Ruby Amanfu, Craig Finn & Tad Kubler of The Hold Steady (Nov 12 Only), Jesse Malin, Grouplove (Nov 12 Only), Danny Clinch, Matt Sweeney, Amanda Shires, Chase Cohl, Jack Dishel of Only Son, Steve Schiltz of Hurricane Bells, Mikki James, Josh Lattanzi of The Candles, Sammy James Jr. of The Mooney Suzuki, The Wild Feathers (Nov 12 Only), Johnny T, and many more.
