As I am, I hope anyone who enjoyed the Soul Roll Expo Jan. 30 thanks Julie Reeder for engineering such an event.
Our band arrived a few hours before our set time. We immediately began looking for the stage. We were hearing music, seeing speakers, but… no stage. Jokingly, I said to myself we are going to be performing in the sky. At that very moment I looked up to see that, in fact, yes, we will be performing in the sky (balcony of Elder House).
The professionalism at this event was first class. We were checked in and informed of our time to be ready to play. Shortly afterward, the crowd doubled, almost tripled. It was only 11:15 a.m. and the first band was already in motion and on schedule.
Our tent was up and our items were selling. The smell of food was already in the air. We all ate; the food was great.
The stage manager and sound crew was the best and [our band] was fully accepted by the crowd.
The skate ramp stayed occupied all day by kids and adults. The booths were great and they had free giveaways all day, which kept the crowd excited! You did not even know that your wrist band had numbers that automatically entered you in a raffle. I tell you, what a day well spent!
This event was put together for grown ups, as well as for kids. Thank you, Mrs. Reeder. Thank you, Fallbrook. It was a blessing.
