Nor is it unusual for sets to turn into big jam sessions.

“This year’s line-up is pretty amazing. All these great acts will perform in my yard in the Jungle,” said Eric Freitas, event producer for Jungle Jam.

The DoceLunas Resort has been the home for Jungle Jam since 2011 and is truly one of the gems of all Central America.  Located among the towering jungle shade trees, the DoceLunas Resort is a three minute drive or a one mile walk from the beach. Wild life abounds and scarlet macaws, monkeys, geckos and anteaters all can be seen on the grounds at DoceLunas. DoceLunas offers all the amenities expected of a four-star hotel, including a full service gourmet restaurant, high speed wireless internet, a spectacular waterfall cave mosaic swimming pool, a full spa and beauty salon and more.

Slightly Stoopid’s current “Kickin Up Dust” Summer 2013 tour w Atmosphere continues to sell-out major outdoor amphitheaters in the U.S.  (including Irvine, CA Verizon Wireless (15,000), San Diego Sleep Train Amph (15,000), Berkeley, CA Greek Theatre 7500, Santa Barbara County Bowl 4500 as it makes its way across the country.
