Costa Rica News & Events – Slightly Stoopid, the Ocean Beach/San Diego, CA group led by multi-instrumentalists and founding members, Miles Doughty and Kyle McDonald, will headline Jungle Jam IV January 16-19, 2014 in Jaco, Costa Rica. Slightly Stoopid will be joined by special guest Don Carlos of Black Uhuru.
Featuring four days of continuous music, this year’s party in the jungle also includes festival newcomers G. Love & Friends, Dumpstaphunk, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers, The Expendables,Ojo de Buey, Florian Droids, dopapod, as well as local favorites Thicker than Thieves, Kung Fu and Fusion Funk San Jose. The lineup also includes Jungle Jam veterans Max Creek, Oteil Burbridge, bassist for the Allman Brothers Band, Zach Deputy and Ryan Montbleau Band.
The one-of-a-kind music and camping festival in Jaco, Costa Rica is hosted by the beautiful Doce Lunas Resort Hotel and includes concerts at multiple locations in the area, including beach front venues, late night clubs and local theatres, all designed to create an up-close and personal concert experience. It is not unusual for bands to play multiple days at Jungle Jam. Nor is it unusual for sets to turn into big jam sessions.
“We are stoked to have some of the best touring bands in America come ROCK JACO once again,’ said Eric Freitas, event producer for Jungle Jam IV. “This year’s line-up represents a mix of genres and styles that fit in perfect harmony with the culture, surroundings and the vibe of Costa Rica. Roots Reggae, Funk, Soul, Hip Hop, Fusion, Americana, Jam and Electronic it’s all here.”
And this year, the party continues late night with a number of shows and one of a kind experiences including Headphone Disco, one of the most exciting dance party experiences to emerge in years. Where else can you witness one half of a crowd go wild to tough electro beats while the other half get down to some floor-shaking rock n’ roll? All at the same late night Jungle Jam Party.
