Sweetwater was the first GROUP to play at the Woodstock festival (after Richie Havens, Country Joe McDonald and John Sebastian). Their music-style is a fusion of rock, jazz, folk, psychedelia, latin and even classical music. They released three albums in the period of 1968 - 1971. Their career was shortlived due to a tragic auto accident involving lead singer Nansi Nevins, which led to her vocal chords being injured. They reformed for the 1994 Woodstock II-festival and has kept at it since then, releasing a compilation album (Cycles) and a live album in 2001. They were also the first band to have a full length VH-1 movie made about them; Sweetwater - A True Rock Story, which was released in 1999. The original members of the band were Nansi Nevins (lead vocals), August Burns (cello), Albert Moore (flute/backing vocals), Alan Malarowitz (drums), Elpidio Cobian (conga drums), Alex Del Zoppo(Keyboards) and Fred Herrera (bass).
