Banjos ringing in Punta Gorda

Dear Banjo Associate


Attached is an information flyer designed for those musicians who wish to attend the 2014 Punta Gorda Banjo Bash, as a player or participant. The basic banjo theme for the Bash will be expanded to include Bluegrass, Dixieland and Jazz ensembles, provided banjos are used as a “main ingredient”.


The dates for the event are February 14 - 15,  2014. We have again contracted the Charlotte Harbor Event Center for performances and have also contracted the beautiful Four Points by Sheraton Hotel, located directly across the road from the event center.


The event will be managed by the Young Musicians Education Foundation Inc. The YMEF is a local 501(C)3 corporation with a dedicated mission to help youngsters that can't afford music lessons and/or instruments. All donations are completely tax deductible and corporate sponsors are always welcomed. Confirmed headliners are Tim Allan, Johnny Baier, the Myakka River Bluegrass Band, The Southwind Bluegrass Band and the All American Banjo Team. We will be contracting many more individuals and groups.


All registered participants, will enjoy free workshops, admission to all shows, venues and jam sessions. Please visit our web-site at www.banjomusic.org to obtain detailed information.


It should be mentioned that foundation personnel or volunteers are not compensated for their time or their expenses. As such, all profits will go to the children and maintenance of the foundation. Thank you!
