    My point is… this is a Fort Mill Festival and out of 22 bands Fort Mill is not represented by more than 1/2 of a band. I feel we should have more bands from our local area to showcase our town. There’s a lot of talent here! And trust me….. I love The Taylor Brothers Band and you won’t find a more loyal fan of theirs…my boyfriend is a member!

    While I’m sure these bands will provide entertainment for lots of people, I feel they should have more local and at lease ONE Fort Mill Band on the venue. 22 bands…and none from Fort Mill?
