The Radiators, RatDog and Hot Tuna are some of our favorite bands at Hittin' the Note. Each group is in that select class that makes every show a special occasion, never playing the same setlist twice. If you love these bands, what could be better than several days worth of shows in the tropical splendor of Jamaica? We thought that would get your attention!

Yes, the dream has become a reality, and each band will host a special event at Jamaica's Grand Lido Resort in 2010, focused entirely on that group, their fans, and their music. Relaxing on the beach with a cold beverage while some of the greatest musicians on Earth jam in the background - does life get any better than that? Like all of Destinations Concerts' package trips, these are all-inclusive vacations with everything from hotels (all rooms are suites) to food and top shelf alcohol covered in the price - everything except airfare is covered. Once you set foot on the gorgeous Grand Lido resort, your money is no good! The cost of the trip even includes fun activities like snorkeling and SCUBA diving in the crystal-clear Caribbean.

The informal, relaxed atmosphere of Jamaica tends to bring out the best in performers, as anyone who has been to a Destinations trip can attest. Little Feat has been doing these trips to Jamaica for seven years, and the band's fans consider their previous visits to be some of their finest shows in recent memory. These trips often feature special performances like acoustic sets, or inspire the bands to break out unusual covers or long-dormant originals. Maybe it's the island's rich musical legacy, or the incredible unspoiled natural beauty that inspires the musicians. Either way, there is nothing like Jamaica.

Speaking of Mule-oriented music marathons, anyone within driving distance of Atlanta has some very special shows coming up these next few weeks. More on the Mule later, but first things first. This weekend two veteran jamband institutions will unite to rock the Masquerade Music Park in a unique co-bill. Legendary Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir is fresh off the recent triumphant Dead tour and ready to hit the road with his band RatDog, and moe. has won rave reviews for their late night show at Bonnaroo, widely considered to be one of the best of the whole festival. Both groups are on fire right now and these shows will give you a LOT of music for your money!

Besides two full sets from each band, with RatDog closing Saturday July 18th and moe. batting cleanup on Friday July 17th, Masquerade's indoor venues will be pulsating with music until the wee hours, thanks to homegrown Georgia jamband and HTN favorite Perpetual Groove. Click here for tickets and get ready for a great weekend of music!

Once you have recovered sufficiently from that onslaught, get ready for another action-packed night at the Masquerade on July 25th, with Gov't Mule, JJ Grey and Mofro and Outformation. The Mule is getting ready to release By A Thread, their first studio album with new bassist Jorgen Carlsson, and anybody who has seen them on tour this year knows that the band is playing with real passion and purpose. To many Mule fans, Jorgen's heavy bass recalls the glory days of Allen Woody, and has given the group a new spark of excitement.

JJ Grey and Mofro have been championed by HTN since they first hit the scene, and their swamp funk sound will be a great opener. Could you ask for two more soulful frontmen than JJ and Warren? Sam Holt and Outformation will also play this marathon show, playing their own unique mixture of Widespread Panic, Marshall Tucker, and other influences, which they have brewed into a sound all their own. As if that wasn't enough, the Hill Country Revue will rock the late-night show indoors with their high-energy brand of North Mississippi Hill Country Blues. All for $40! This will be one of the best nights of music Atlanta will see all year, so click here for tickets and don't miss out!

There are only a handful of bands in the world who have the ambition, fan loyalty, and depth of catalog to host their own weekend-long music festivals. The Disco Biscuits' Camp Bisco is one of the oldest such festivals in the country - this year's event, which takes place this weekend at Indian Lookout Country Club in Mariaville, NY, will be the eighth time the Bisco nation has convened for three days of fun and music.

The Biscuits are the star of the show, and will play five sets throughout the weekend, filled with their own brand of electronica-fused jam-trance. Another titan of the jamtronica scene, Sound Tribe Sector 9, will be playing twice, and the lineup is full of diverse artists.

From reggae royalty Damian Marley, performing with hip-hop legend Nas, to legendary DJs like Simon Posford and Ott, the whole weekend will be filled with music until late at night. Apart from the music, Camp Bisco has an endearing summer camp quality, right down to a "color war" that some patrons take VERY seriously, a scavenger hunt, and an art mural showcase/competition.
