We just had our first opportunity to showcase and exhibit at the “2011 Michigan Festivals & Events Association” convention this past weekend and an incredible time was had by all. Special thanks go out to Sharon Muczinski, Jaimie Ward, and Samantha Muczinski for representing the band in the most professional manner. We met so many people from around the state who put on all of the various local fairs and festivals. One thing that struck me most is how much all of these officials care about their local communities and how hard they work to put on these events for the residents in their cities and townships. In a word, it was heartwarming and really makes you appreciate the work that goes into these events. Many of these people are volunteers for their communities and do an excellent job putting these events together. Of course, come to find out….they also like to have a good time doing what they do The highlight of the weekend was when we got to perform in a showcase to a standing room only crowd on Saturday night. I was proud of Clint, Bernie, Steve, Brian, Nick and Mike as we threw down our flavor of music and rocked the crowd “country style”. We already have several confirmed bookings for 2012 which will be posted as soon as the t’s are crossed and the i’s are dotted, but look for us to be coming to a community event in your neck of the woods throughout Michigan. On that note, even if we are not booked at your community event, be sure to go out next summer and support your local fairs and festivals…not only is it good for the soul to support and become involved in your own backyard, but based on what I saw this weekend, you’re in for a “good time”!
