I'll be there. :D

I'll be bringing my Jem 7VWH and my RG7620 along for the plane trip. Anymore guitars and I'd have brought too many.. hehe

I'll be there with all my gear.

I'd offer rides, but I already have a co-pilot and with all that gear, it's a pretty full truck. :-)

Yeah, I'll be there too! This will be another GREAT year. Orlando's a blast and after 5 years of doing this, I think Kevan and I have it figured out! ;)

We're fortunate to have Rob Baldcucci (Favored Nations Recording artist) play for the 5th consecutive year. Plus he played last year at Jemfest UK! Here's the Jemfest USA lineup as it stands now:

Tony Smotherman (First Time Performance at Jemfest)
Ricky Garcia (that's right! Ricky from THIS forum!) (Fourth Time Performance at Jemfest)
Piranha Red (Second Time Performance at Jemfest)
Cereal Killer (Fourth Time Performance at Jemfest)
Scott Bradoka (First Time Performance at Jemfest)
Andy Martin (First Time Performance at Jemfest)
Bill Peck (Second Time Performance at Jemfest)
German Schauss (First Time Performance at Jemfest)
Rob Balducci (Sixth Time Performance at Jemfest)
Eric Sands (Second Time Performance at Jemfest)
HEADLINER JON FINN!!!! (First Time Performance at Jemfest)

Of course we'll have all the cool raffles and giveaways along with T-shirts like last year and every year before that. You come in the door - you get free stuff! And all the proceeds go to Steve's Make a Noise Foundation! How much cooler is that?

Remember - there's also Jemfest UK and Jemfest Germany happening this year. Check out the Jemfest website. Hope to see everyone there - it's a BLAST!

Not anytime soon. We're sticking with Orlando for many reasons. I'll post a link from Jemfest.com with the FAQ's on this once the site comes back online. Should be in a little while as the server is rebooting.

Oh, and unlike most concerts you attend this one is free. Not $75 for nosebleed general admission to see 5 bands. You can see 10 (maybe 11) bands over 2 days for free, up close and personal in a room capacity of 300. Cameras/video cameras are allowed. Where else can you meet each artist personally and jam with them on stage? The answer is NOWHERE. Plus there's a cool guitar show and seminars going on all the time. Of course, we accept donations (without them we couldn't do this). And some of the money we raise with T-shirts to help run the show. It ain't cheap renting a hotel ballroom for 2 days on a weekend. :shock:

E-mail or PM me if anyone has questions.
