Strawberry Fest

Thanks to all who came out and supported the 28th Annual Strawberry Festival. Rootstone Jug Band debuted our new 5 piece outfit at the show, featuring John Thompson on guitar and vocals and Sean Poff on washboard, jug and vocals. We followed a group who faithfully recreated classic radio hits. The throngs at Elmwood Park seemed to identify with our primitve jug band music! The hordes of dancing children out front really made our day (folks, there really isn't much better than seeing kids dancing in our book). The event was a tremendous success. By day's end we were down to a half bucket of Strawberries - from over 5000 pints! Community High School student bands got the show started off right. Pickin' Buds followed us to continue the acoustic leg of the entertainment. The Magic Twig Community brought The Missionaries, SUNKING! and The Young Sinclairs to bring the festival to successful and rocking close. We could not have done it without everyone's support. Special thanks are in order for John McBroom and Eric the sound guy for a job well done!
