    The band was awesome. The weather was perfect. Not as much food as usual. But the fireworks more than made up for it.

    Was it just me, or was the band a tad off beat on some of the songs?

      I agree. Not as good as previously heard.

      The music was just too slow for my tastes period. I just enjoy really fast music to dance to. There was a good group of people, though.

    I plan to come BUT will be driving back from the mountains after meeting with the county code folks for an Occupancy Permit inspection. I am not sure what time they are showing up--supposedly after lunch. Who knows what that means? And the inspections takes an hour. I will let you know if the timing of all of that makes attending this concert too difficult. Hope not--sounds like fun.
