    I chickened out because I have heard bad things about YBOR. I missed it but I so dig Victor.

    Thanks for sharing your pics Jim. They turned out great! Did you have a problem uploading them from your phone? I couldn't get mine to go thru that way so I have to put them on my computer and upload them that way.

    So glad I went to this! Was hesitant because of the cost, but was well worth it! Victor was amazing as usual, really enjoyed some of the other bands too, and the weather was perfect! Got to meet Victor, his bassist and guitarist later on in the night. They were just walking around the festival, so I got to talk to them and get a few pics. :)

      so... post the pics! :D

      Tried posting the pics earlier. They wouldn't go thru. Will try again when I get a chance. :)

    Glad to hear that it was a good event. Now if we could just get VW (and/or Southern Hospitality) back to the area more often... :)

    Victor was just terrific. I went to this specifically to see him & he came through, as usual. I enjoyed Mighty, Good & Strong too.

    It would be too loud and my ears are valuable for teaching singing

      ... ear plugs

    To all who is going, if you can't find me, feel free to call or text[masked]-6850. Texting would be best since it's gonna be loud. :)

    Damn I didn't realize about the $$$. Plus I don't think I could get there in time to see Victor. I LOVE Victor though and will keep my eye out for when he is in the area again. I will have to prod his manager Harty to get him here more often!

    Dang. I'd love to go to this. Just too much $ and too much crowd to negotiate for a 70 minute set. I'll catch him the next time around. Have a great time!

    May 8, 2014

    • Peg

      True. I just didn't see much else of interest, and I don't like crowds that much. Let me know how it is. Maybe I'll go next year.

      I have several music buff friends who have gone to this for years & rave about the experience. I thought I'd give it a try Friday night only. I enjoy Victor so much that I don't think I can go wrong - of course I even like him better when he's free like at the Dunedin Brewery last month

    Jim and anyone else who is thinking about going,
    I'm trying to find out if you can just pay for one day instead of having to get a weekend pass. I'll post info as soon as I find it out. :)
