George St. Kitts, who certainly wasn't trying to hide his enthusiasm for the performers, I wasn't alone in my thinking. I had no choice but to notice St. K on occasion as he was on the 2nd stage semi-between myself and the main stage so I couldn't miss him. But that just tells me that he really enjoys the music too, and feels it, and you do indeed need that element to have a good festival - organizers looking to attain really good music - not just

TPE as an entertainment and promo production specialist for film/ video / live production and online optimization and have organized shows for events as large as Canada's largest convention center in Toronto, originally would have loved the opportunity to put on a Jazz Festival, and had actually considered it years ago when after my first ever Yuk Yuks performance I'd met Pianist / Composer Ken Skinner of The Jazz Mongers (Marooned etc) - who happens to be the God Son of Oscar Peterson's brother Chuck, and studied under Daisy Sweeney, Oscar's sister, who asked me to look into it. His father Kenny Sr. was also a pianist playing with Charlie Biddle, Dougie Richardson, Nelson Symonds Ken kept repeating the terms new market as if it were an omen as I recall and he was truly exited - a man who'd also lead a hard life I think, and looking for a rainbow... maybe re-find a lost passion.
Now he'd be a good fit for Cafe Hesed - located on Main St and already equipped with a piano - so maybe I'll just inject myself next year by setting up performers in the local Main St. venues need be! Ha...
There are a few empty spaces on Main that'll likely fill up before next year, including a new fish house, and I'm sure the now empty bank will find a tenant by then, and, together with the already good mix of quirky businesses and delicious eatery's, with options to sit in or quick bite on site and mixed with visual beauty of main St., you have all the elements for an event such as this to grow!
Build it and they will come.
TP's rating an A minus!
