What occurred at the tea plantation was truly the epitome of what our society has become. GREEDY! It was poorly planned in every sense of the word. You cannot have a huge festival on a small piece of land. It should have been very evident to all involved that this was going to be a travesty. Last year, there may have been 1000 people out there truly enjoying the land, music, and people. This year 8,000 people, lines for all of the following: to get in and park, to have a drink, to get some food, to go to the bathroom, and worst of all trying to escape. We sat in the parking lot line to escape for over 2 hours. I love the tea plantation and my blame does not lie with them. It lies solely with the Music Farm production group. You were not prepared to handle this in any way. Now, you have angered so many Charleston area residents. Make sure to remember next time, It is not about the money!!. I would suggest you provide refunds to those who never even got to the concert (yes, cops told people who had tickets to turn around and go home) to save some face. Ticket cap on that show should have been 3500 people, NO MORE. You had over 8000 people out there. Now, I know collectively there has to be more brains in the group than that!!
This "BIKINI BASH" should be held @ Folly.
Peter's brand of storytelling is as captivating as it is unique. He relives rather than retells his tales, bringing high drama to stories packed with Southern folklore, humor, and intrigue. Highly recommended.
who is performing and giving speeches? nothing listed here or on the spoleto site ...
Yea, this is actually maker culture stuff and not really DIY.
Plus BRAVE BABY and The Royal Tinfoil!
Most unreal time with music and fans, the security were straight Nazis and pricks to everyone all night long!!!! The music was on time though!
The stunning new Duvall space on Azalea Drive is one of the best kept secrets in the Lowcountry. The building is huge, with different kinds of kitchens all over the place, including; their enormous catering kitchen where the catering company and their fleet of chefs prepare for their countless parties and events, but also serves as host kitchen for several of the area's most popular Food Truck chefs to prepare their offerings. There's also a party room with a Chef's show kitchen, as well as a chilled, FDA approved food prep kitchen for processing food for shipping and storing. To top things off, they've got a new state of the art Cabaret-Dinner Theatre with shows by Charleston's own Midtown Productions that rival Broadway - which also serves as an event space. Check it out!
The scheduled time for the workshop is 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. For further info, please contact the instructor at bardowl2[at]aol.com

The Crawfish boil has been rescheduled for April 26. The recent cold weather in Louisiana has stunted the growth of the crawfish and they will need a couple more weeks to get bigger.
The world's only licensed BB King Tribute artist will perform his famous BB King tribute at Mommafest!! Big Daddy Cade is endorsed by BB King himself. He takes the stage at 1:00pm.
Mommafest 2014 (April 19, 2014)
Voted “best of” each year Momma’s Blues Palace was a magical place. Always the home of great music, Momma and the Blues Palace became legend. Momma and Poppa DuPree have always tried to give back to the community that made their dream come true. To that end each year they staged “Mommafest” for various worthy causes. Each year “Mommafest “was s a huge event featuring the very best music, food, fun and good times.
Momma’s closed its doors to make way for development in 2004, but now, together with Smokey’s Place the tradition continues. Proceeds will go to the Ronald McDonald House and Music will run from Noon until 1:30 AM. Some of the very best bands around have graciously volunteered their talents. Their will be vendors of every description and as usual at Smokey’s the food will be awesome. Their will also be some great prizes.
Don’t miss this opportunity to have a great time and rekindle a grand tradition.
