This news comes as the staff and fans of the festival continue to mourn the passing of festival founder Bill Bieloh. Bill died in the morning hours of September 24. His legacy can never be put into words, but perhaps a small part of what he meant to the bands, fans and staff of the Moondance Jam festivals will be apparent when you watch these performances from the 2010 festival.
The 101 Network, DIRECTV's exclusive entertainment channel, is a unique television experience that is available to more than 18.5 million DIRECTV subscribers.
