TJ was a very nice guy. Prayers for his family

I remember TJ, especially when we were working the gate, ferretting out folks who didn't pay. We would say "go get em' TJ", and he would. Nice man, always helpful to us. πŸ™πŸ˜₯

TJ was a good man. Always so helpful at the festival!

Jerry and I are so very sorry to hear this. TJ was an absolute good person. He will be missed by many. Our condolences and prayers for the family. πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ˜’β€

Such wonderful people. I can’t wait until the next one.

I’ll be ready for the January jam

Cant wait for the next one.

We miss the meetings & Jams.

I'm so disappointed that I missed it. Sure hoping to make the next one. If anyone has video clips I'd sure like to see them posted.

Its great to hear that Nickel Creek is planning a 2024 US tour. As a Grammy-winning progressive bluegrass trio and recipients of the Americana Lifetime Achievement Award, they are undoubtedly a highly regarded act. Since tickets are going fast, its crucial for fans to secure their tickets promptly if they wish to attend one of their shows. 

Midwest performances are:
FEB 10, 2024 Murat Theatre at Old National Centre, Indianapolis, IN
FEB 12, 2024 Peoria Civic Center Theater, Peoria, IL
FEB 13, 2024 Kalamazoo State Theatre, Kalamazoo, MI
FEB 15, 2024 Mershon Auditorium, Columbus, OH
FEB 16, 2024 Clyde Theatre, Fort Wayne, IN
FEB 17, 2024 Louisville Palace Theatre, Louisville, KY
MAR 12, 2024 Canton Palace Theatre, Canton, OH

Looking forward to the 2024 TriStateBluegrassFestival πŸ‘

Hope to Hear The BARREL SCRAPERS too

When is Ottawa County going to be there

I hope Blue Holler Band is part of the many more.

When is Steve Scott &Scott Brothers to be there

What festival Volume Five at?

Volume 5 would be the only band worth seeing. Wouldn’t waste money for anyone else. Low budget this year?
