Take your dancing shoes cause there'll be all sorts of fine, fine music and kind people, lots of pretty girls, whether in the face, the eye or just in the heart. Don't worry ladies, there'll be plenty of men strong as a bear, and there's others that are barely strong. Great food and don't forget that barbequed hallelujah lamb! So come on down, Right On My People, ROMP ROMP ROMP!"

It troubles me that the first three bands listed are not Bluegrass, I know they are "on the edge," of the bands offered LRB should lead the release.
Too many diversions - too little grass.
