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.

Lot's of laughs and a working bar on stage. Pretty much a perfect evening of theatre.
We are looking forward to another great show to support a great cause!
FANTASTIC SHOW!! Saw it on opening night - WOW - such an AMAZING group of students. You can tell they worked hard to produce such an outstanding show... The costumes are beautiful, the sets and staging were top notch. Congrats to the cast and crew. Charleston folks - you should not miss this one!
Great show and the sound was so much better than the REK show in October. The performances were magnificent, even if the songs were at times nontraditional.
Excellent vocals, venue needs to work on sound, but overall a great band with a lot of potential. Can not wait for a venue that actually compliments them. Terrific!!!! Dream bigger!
Hell yeah! its been a while since I have been to a show...a few months. It sucks that Rehab is going their separate ways, though. I ALWAYS enjoy their live shows. If I know you, see you there! Rob KuZ.
Awesome venue to play. First rate sound, sound engineer, lighting, stage and atmosphere! www.thatgirldrummer.com
With all of the great dining options that Charleston offers, Restaurant Week gives me and my husband a chance to try places and foods that are new to us. We have had great service at every restaurant we have tried and have yet to be disappointed in the food. We went out Sunday, January 12, for dinner at Blossom and enjoyed everything. Unfortunately, prior to our reservation at Blossom, we stopped in to Cypress for a cocktail and an appetizer, the bartender had no problem expressing his negative opinion of restaurant week. I understand the discontent at having lower total sales therefore lower tips, but for the hour that my husband and I were at his bar we were the only customers so due to Restaurant Week, the bartender made a bonus $10 tip ($35 check) off of people that would not have been there on a normal Sunday evening. Every dollar counts, not just for those receiving the tips, but for those giving the tips as well.
I am biased for I know the music director as a house mate and know how much he puts into it. That said I bought the album for my brother as a Christmas gift when it came out in 1969 so I had listened to it many times. I had never seen a staged production of it, now I have. The actors and musicians brought Tommy to life with emotive singing and dancing, I felt the musicians kept the score driving and moving through all facets, folk to hard driving rock. I saw opening night and I'm going to see another. I paid to get in also no comps for being a house mate.

Had an awesome time at this event! Thanks Taco Boy! Lots of people, almost everyone in costume made for a really fun night. Tunes going the whole night kept everybody dancing. I'll be back next year.
the Passages Art Show and Sale is a Great show! I hope it becomes a permanent stop to shop for art and gifts. Our community need this art to represent the african americans.
Charleston will be served "good times " reggae tonight - awesome band
My husband and I recently saw the stand-up comedy and had a blast! While the theater is small, it is big on life, entertaininment, laughs.
It was wonderful to enjoy a night out that didn't cost an arm and a leg. At only 10$ a person and sodas/water for only a 1$, you really can not go wrong for such excellent entertainment and professionalism.
What is great is there is so much opportunity to check out great art. for example in Marion Square there are over 80 artist with there gorgeous art work on display through the entire festival. In particular go check out Kellie Jacobs art at tent # 27, it is fantastic you will all love it!!!!!!!
