    1. Hi Phyllis,This is really a small festival.We wish we could have Everton Blender,but we cant afford an act like this.The fees we pay are for Regional bands between 150.00 and 300.We get between 100 and 150 people in attendance, just not enough to cater to bigger names.You see we are Jamaican musicians who have been residing here in TN.since 1999 and started to get together with local bands to do this event along with our band Natti Love Joys .Seen as how I was the Congos bassie (Tony Allen aka Jah T)they did play for us for the second event we did,along with Nadine Sutherland because at the time I was playing Bass for her on a few shows we got to know her and she did play for us as a favor.We are considering to move the labor day event that we do here to a bigger venue with bigger names so we will keep you in mind for that if indeed we move it from here labor day weekend.Thanks for your enquiry and we wish you success in your endeavors.Blessings always.Jah T and Marla(lovejoys)
