The Fest boasts 10 musical acts including up and coming Naughty Professor out of New Orleans  and trumpet playing kids from Trumpets4Kids – a nonprofit organization helping dedicated, musically inclined children to have a trumpet they might otherwise not be able to afford.   The Fest this year is dedicated to this Organization.

Appearing on the ladies’ side are Lady Diamond, currently appearing at Dallas’ House of Blues on Tuesdays and Sunday morning Gospel Brunches; Ms. Marcy and Her Sugar Daddy’s with her renditions of familiar standards from the Great American Songbook;  and Carolyn Lee Jones, makes standards sound new and the new sound standard.
