Main Band

"Back To The Garden 1969 - The Woodstock Experience"  (BTTG 1969), formed by Gary Adamson in 2009, is a group of versatile musicians and singers who have come together to celebrate the music and spirit of the Woodstock era. The 1969 Woodstock Music Festival was the ultimate rock concert, a celebration of peace, love and music.

The band recreates the classic sounds associated with Woodstock. The musical performances are a tribute to the artists who made Woodstock great, including: Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Jimi Hendrix, Sly & The Family Stone, Jefferson Airplane, Santana, Joe Cocker, Janis Joplin, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Who, Richie Havens… and all the rest!

This concert provides a full multimedia theatrical event through period costuming, lighting, video, sound bites and storytelling about the legendary artists who performed and the political and cultural backdrop of the 1960's.

Unlike most tribute bands, BTTG 1969 performs the music of many of the artists who defined this "classic rock" era. From nostalgic Baby Boomers to intrigued Millennials, and all those in between, this show has something for everyone.
