VillageFest 2015

Thanks to everybody who made it out to VillageFest this year.  It has taken a bit of time to collect photos from our attendees and performers, but here is what we’ve got.  We really couldn’t have gotten a better day

Funk Superjam!

A picture of Seth playing guitar in a vibe-a-licious room while Kevin lays down that fat beat on a vintage Ludwig drum set!

Seth and I had a little time to kill, so we caught up with a couple esteemed colleagues.  Perennial cool cats Kevin and Kelly teach drum, bass, piano, and guitar lessons in Decatur, GA.  (oooh, yeah. . . alliteration)  They
