Wear your Hawaiian shirt in memory of Dave Giegerich, who was one of the top lap steel players in America before passing away earlier this year. The Hula Monsters, Dede Wyland & Mama Tried, Smooth Kentucky, Tracey Eldridge & The Flying Aces, Stoney Point, and more musical groups will be performing.
When you play horizontal slide guitar, you have a lot of choices: You can play dobro in a bluegrass context, you can play table steel in a western swing context, you can play pedal steel in a country context, and you can play lap steel in a Hawaiian context. Giegerich chose to do them all. He played in many different bands as a result—his recording credits include Bill Kirchen, the Greg Kihn Band, the Red Stick Ramblers, Jimmy Gaudreau, the Polkats, Wayne Taylor, and Arty Hill. Eventually Giegerich co-founded his own band, the Hula Monsters, which would play all those styles.
