My sister and I had planned on attending this festival for about 10 years. This year we finally made it. Some things about it were very disappointing and some things were good. When it was all over we both agreed that we had enjoyed it and are looking forward to attending again next year. T.G. Brown was the main attraction on Friday night. He really put on a good show. He did tell an off color joke that I thought was inappropriate but now I can't even remember what it was. lol. He came out carrying a towel and kept it with him the whole show. Since it's so hot under the lights I can't imagine why the entertainers didn't dress a little cooler.
Johnny Rodriguez was the main attraction on Saturday nite. We were greatly looking forward to seeing him as I'm sure many others were also. I must say he was a BIG disappointment. Not because he can't sing but for the simple reason that the sound was so far off that we couldn't understand a thing he was saying or singing. The audience was mostly older people and I believe that over 1/2 got up and walked out. We complained after the show to the people in the sound booth in the back of the stadium. They said they had completely turned their sound off. Mr. Rodriguez left the stage immediately after the show but the band members were still on stage so we complained to one of them and he claimed it was the fault of the people in the sound booth. Since there were no problems hearing but one of the other groups I'm thinking it was the fault of the entertainers. The Springs played on Friday night and there was the same problem with the sound only not as bad. As you can see Mr. Rodriguez had a sweat towel also but whenever he used it he turned away from the audience. lol
This is a very historical house. I hadn't seen it in a while when I took this picture and it looks very different from what I remember. It used to have some antique cars and trucks in the front. Now it looks like someone has restored it which is nice. I remember seeing this when we made our many trips to Little River State Park.
