Back story for this evening was that Rusted Root came to SUGARLOAF Ski Resort in Maine after a marathon 30+hr trip from Alaska where they had performed two shows in Fairbanks and Anchorage. The Adam Ezra Group (AEG) had warmed up the audience which grew to fill the King Pine Ballroom located in the Base Lodge on Sugarloaf Mountain.

Weather was perfect for a winter ski resort in February, with a snowstorm hitting the lodge that evening dumping 3-4 inches of the white stuff during the concert. Also taking place that day was a semi-professional snowboard event featuring local snowboarders.

From a wiki and I quote, "Rusted Root has toured often and extensively since its infancy. Early on in their musical career Rusted Root was "discovered" by legendary musical giants, like Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, and invited to tour along. They have been seen on tour with big-name acts like the Allman Brothers, Phish, Toad the Wet Sprocket, and Jewel. The band was also part of various summer tours packages like the Furthur Fest and spent two years touring with the Horde Fest. "It’s kind of cool to be out there, just playing with Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, the Allman Brothers and the Grateful Dead. It’s kind of a trip… to like see these people you kind of grew up with and you’re having conversations and jammin’ with," Glabicki said on National Public Radio."
