Forged in the Green Mountains of northern Vermont, the rollicking quartet Locals & Company promises to inject fun and funk into this year's fest

Their genre is homegrown and original, a toe-tapping collection that ranges from rock to blues dripping with hip-hop, reggae and electric folk with strong overtones of classic rock and groovy jams.

The four members of LoCo are from the iPod generation, and their diverse sources of influences are reflected in both their covers and originals. From Jason Mraz to Hendrix to Sublime to Phish to Dave Matthews to the Beastie Boys and Snoop Dogg, it’s like a killer play list you assembled for the best party of the year.
