On Saturday, September 20th, 2008, the Cultural Arts Council of Douglasville/Douglas County, in their "Concerts on the Plaza" series presented Tommy Dean and Swami Gone Bananas in concert at O’Neal Plaza. For almost two and a half hours, SGB played a great psychedelic concert of music from the late ’60s and early ’70s.
The band describes its music as "retro-hip psychedelic rock influenced by an encyclopedic esoteric assortment of musicians." There are many highlights but the music and the band speak for themselves. I have broken the concert up into flash video segments, some with more than one song. You will need a fast connection to the Internet for certain, and hopefully you will find the quality much better than YouTube. Unfortunately we don’t have time or skills to edit the raw video, and we don’t own a fluid head video tripod yet . . . More songs will be processed and uploaded as time and permissions allow.
Turn up the volume and Enjoy!
