Here’s to the music

The celebration was made special by the presence of over 100 musicians and the following bands. Support your local players when you can.The Natives; Big Daddy Lee and the King Bees; Louis and the Lizards; the Last Minute String Band; K.C. Johnson and the Earthbeat Choir; Straight Shot & the S-Curves; Rattlebone; Scooze; Funky Monkey and the Thunder Love; the Whittingtons; the Crowlin Ferlies; the Soular Sisters; the Lone Pine Bluegrass Band; Slightly White; Common House; the Friendly Dictators; Still Twitchin; Rush Street; Voltaic; and over 30 more solo performers.And, this was only the musicians who were in town and/or could fit it in their schedules. There is no doubt that we have a wealth of musical talent in this valley. It was very nice to have them play for Carbondale.Thanks to Peak Tent & Party Rental for their help. Woodsie got to help with the event again this year by renting us a tent from his new employer. And, special thanks to RE-MAX Mountain West for their $500 donation to Jeff and Gail Brodsky’s efforts with Joy International.A cool event on a very hot weekend.
