Counterculture icon and peace activist Wavy Gravy celebrated his 80th birthday last night at Mill Valley, CA’s Sweetwater Music Hall. The party featured performances from Bay-area natives ALO, Steve Kimock and Friends, and the Doobie Decibel System Duo. With Wavy Gravy (born Hugh Nanton Romney) seated at the side of the stage, each act played a full set, with ALO’s set featuring sit-ins from bassist Bobby Vega and Kimock. The guitarist joined Zach Gill, Dan Lebowitz, Steve Adams, and David Brogan on the band’s original track “Barbeque” which segued into Prince “1999” and back into “Barbeque”. As always, ALO put their own unique spin on the song and provided the party atmosphere.Jam Cruise Shares Video Of ALO’s Funky Pool Deck Performance [Pro-Shot]All proceeds from the event benefited the Seva Foundation‘s blindness prevention programs around the world.
