Do you know someone who's not having the best winter?
East Coast friends and supporters..... I feel like doing something for folks who need a slight brightening of their spirits over the holidays. Post a comment about why you would like to see Smokin' Blues Fest and Maritime Metal & Hard Festival have their best year yet in 2017. Why are these events important for the grass roots, East Coast music scene, even if not your type of music? Every comment will be entered to win one of SIX PAIRS of passes that will be YOUR GIFT to a friend or family member who might be down in the dumps or financially hurting this holiday season. A $120-$140 treat from you to them......
Winners will be messaged for contact info of person to receive the gift in time for Christmas. Contest closes THIS Sunday night at midnight.
And the gift I have been given is the support that has made both Smokin' Blues Fest and Maritime Metal & Hard Rock Festival the LONGEST running festivals of their sorts in The Maritimes. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!
