it is just going to be an opportunity for either Friday, Saturday or
Sunday to just come on out and hangout with your friends, listen to
music, let your kids play whatever it is that you want to do to get away for at
least a little while."
Local bands will compete against each other
then judges on their performance. It is being held to raise money for the Magee
Team benefitting St. Judes Children's Hospital. At least eleven different bands
