Both bands were outstanding, each of you gave terrfic performances and I was especially impressed with the number of great songs you've each written. I'm a newcomer to JPF and I still need to get around and meet more members, but I'd say we'll be seeing more of both bands at shows in the area.

That was a great show! Both the Blues Punks and North2South made my trip north worthwhile. This is another example of the tremendous talent in our area. Saturday night was a wonderful first step. Congrats to everyone involved.

I am glad to announce that the August 23, 03 concert at the Largo Cultural Center was a success. This was the kickoff for A and R Productions in what we plan will be a long, healthy and eventually prosperous relationship with our fellow Tampa Bay Musicians. Frank and Cindy LaRosa as co/producers were instrumental in the funding, planning and networking involved in this endevour and we thank them wholeheartedly.
The following is the honest recap as I see it and as I've heard from those after the show.
*There was never a doubt about the talent we were involved with as far as turning out a high caliber show.The Blues Punks lit up the stage with their blend of Rock Originals and charismatic stage appeal and North to South rolled in and shone and sparkled and let everyone there know why they were the Headliners that night. North 2 South were ON! Every song and every note carried the crowd to the core of each song and in a lot of cases onto the dance floor.
*Many comments were made by attendees about the quality of the songs as well as delivery. Saying I liked this one best or what about that one. And boy, can that girl sing, and what an entertainer. A great buzz!
* All the comments I personally heard after the show were positive about the talent displayed.
* Many comments about, its so good to see someone promoting Independent artists in Tampa Bay.
* Our thanks to our JPF fellow Folks for coming out to support this endevour, we look forward to working with many of you in the future.
* The Largo Cultural Center is a great facility. We thank their staff for their professionalism and attention to detail.
* Thanks also to those who volunteered as stage hands and staff to help all go smoothly. Dan and Austin Copeland, Terry and Bill from Tin Box Studio and Gordon Ford coming in from Orlando.
Please visit our site at www.aandrproductions.com to see the ever growing list of independent artists who want to network with you.

I never doubted that you would have a successful event! Here's to more in the future. Just as I went out the door tickets in hand and one kid in tow (with another to pick up), Mr. Murphy reared his ugly head in time to ruin our fun! My water pump went about 2 miles from home. By the time we hoofed it back, my husband was gone with the other car. End of fun for the evening :-(

I'm looking forward to hearing more from all of you!

Thanks for putting it all together and pulling it off!
