This year’s Banjo-B-Que was a huge success. Booking the Avett Brothers for their Friday night appearance was an incredibly expensive gamble that paid off. Congratulations go out to Doug and Cathy Varnadore and the rest of the staff for pulling off what was an incredible festival. Cudos are also in order for Joe Neal, Jr., for his appearance and pulling off his shirt, not one but two days in a row. Dancing alone, all tanned and, well, tanned, he put on quite a show for those around who knew who the hell he was.
