So if you are number one a lover and or Connors sort of jazz and you enjoy. The beautiful scenery and you can find an oak hollow park in high point. You know this is the weekend for the seventh annual John Coltrane international jazz. And blues festival. And it's really good to have radio family joining me this morning Rene bond here to talk about it as I say good morning team Joseph Williams and Patrick army. Fellas good morning how aria good morning Rene well good great. In this year or at least is almost see guys seven years and counting and did you think would ever get to that seventy mark gentlemen. Ideas and yeah it is yeah. I think on the beginning. Like it was. You know when you have a Good Friday and in that event you two X and finally you know bright and I think that that was the island and I. Well Joseph let me tell you and Patrick both if you hit the mark from day one and you about ticketed again. Going into year 72017. The first of all congratulations is going to be another fantastic lineup. Can you both share what we can expect to see and enjoy for this year. Well I think that you know we try to get of variety in a diverse group of artists and passing it and we've done the same thing. Always always have some surprises that anything though. Last year people hadn't heard a great reporter. And he came in he does seem to be as surprised everyone and now he's one of the most request is what national race I mean this year. You know we have aren't Ireland and special effects and then. And two young. People that I had a chance to see in the art and Alexis morons and Matthew Whitaker and I think that. I was just blown away when I have not and I think the crowd is gonna be amazed that these fifteen I think they may have just turned fixed he. The level of power lines and then you know that music in general in good hands when you see that absolutely and when we think. Really especially whom. The jazz festival is named after Joseph and Patrick and we talk about John Coltrane. And growing up as a native to North Carolina particularly in and around high point area. Just the talent within that area alone and really only talk about the entire state. Of North Carolina so really nice to be able to spotlight. Young folk. And that's really to what this festival highlights every year and thank you for that Joseph because. Our young people actually have an opportunity and we'll get into more detail about this. An opportunity to enter a writing contest for essay contest. In which they have an opportunity. To. Winning musical instruments whatever instrument they play takes it back to my days when I've thought I was going to be a flute player. I really try at it but I enjoyed it. I made a big base when I was in and union okay. We can't you know I can't play anything Patrick is a guitarist. Yeah man prays that her house who. It even do and how long tactic how old were you when you when you for your hand around the world OK and no no I'm not asking us who remain under college your hands this are a great so really for us for all three of us having a little bit of a musical background. Really helps. But Joseph again getting back to whine and this is another nice addition we talk about. John Coltrane international jazz and blues festival. Originally and its inception it was a one day all day affair. How long ago were you able to expand it to what we now have missed two days of great entertainment and music. Well this is our third year into a multi day event rate and I think you know when you start something you kind of kind of shake out the kinks and you and I realized what works and and Patrick will agree that when you start. Opening gates at twelve. Noon. In the midst of the summer. And that means that way there 7 in the morning it and getting ready and then he hits you right Iran right around this time around already a full hour your guy yes absolutely and is just two months. Or even you know the best thing and an evening in the air right you know immediately say gates open at well and they lined up at ten were so yeah we used our game to you know 10 PM even. Whoever you want to see you by the discounting is now. It hit exactly in the and you really do your best especially if you haven't a particular artist said he would like to see at a certain time of the day. When we talk about oak hollow park how did you go face how were you able to really get such. A beautiful location. Centrally located and of course that the key word is it sits. At least the stage well it's it's right across from the late what did you think. As a wanna have a at a place like oh well that was a joint decision you know live to best locations and and I know visiting the Lincoln lived close by then I just thought that this was just that can do and how it always kind of say this is this kind of a secret. He give me. That a lot of people don't realize they have in the area you need him vile water. And I. And I leave heaven abundant amount of them right in time point. I just think the scenery. That just army Johnson and it's perfect I think that's one of the comments that we give from artists than visit you know. When they stand on this days they seat you know when I look at this stage and I looked to my left and I Zito or. And I see that correct you know it's just a wonderful. Wonderful venue. It really is and it's a venue and really just an event itself gentleman that brings people rarely. From just about everywhere. In I first of all appreciate the fact that I haven't had had an opportunity it's still early for me. To be apart of this since it's day wine in helping to host the event so thank you gentlemen for that opportunity you are welcome to do it again this year I'm really excited. And that's the one thing that I that I enjoy when when talking to the audience. I think a couple of times and had people shout out where your from. And probably well over 50%. Of those individuals are not necessarily from high point. Or from North Carolina I mean I hear people from New York. DC. Atlanta they come out as far west as California. To enjoy a show like this how does that how does that make you guys feel. When you've got people coming from all over the place feels great I mean what Jess just people just lover travel they do I'll miss a return have folks and when he 36 states well uncommon in California. Ohio went in Quebec this yeah correct well very nice piece the other is just great coming as the southern hospitality extended time that mr. goto comeback coming year after year notes. And pocket and your reunion in a lot of ways absolutely recognize each other in there each other and scrupulously oaks and that's exactly. And the fact that it really falls. During the Labor Day weekend. And for a lot of folk having that extra day really apple sent when you have a two day event and then you can just really take that following day off and just kind of take it on land. And just say wow what a what a great. He knew what a great show just what a great area because very likely have a lot of people who come back year after year exactly in in units one of the questions. You need you know not the great plays and we have a great venue and the Sunnis say. You know what is it in the head as if being honest and when they captured and put in the policy insists music and when needed is so that's the question I asked artists as well as people who write me from other places and one time. They some women came from Clearwater and I Clearwater Florida who were brought you down here but they tell you and they said. While we were looking around for festivals. And they still Laura. High point lead and they knew. Right sure and they just said they never had a opportunity. To visit the area yet and they sit. They aren't as you know lovers and they just had lists let's take that trip. And they came and they said this is just wonderful Austin and you. Alarmingly yeah yeah. Yeah got a lot of ex and they say you know we love that he knows that we love the people. In a way that they made us feel and they came back. The following year and they have more people while that's how is being growing you know meet somebody in their pomp and infamous differently and the analysts say. Hey I see you next year nine and then they invite more people also is that's how is relieving growing and so it's really become a tradition for a lot of people where they look. Boards at this time of year. And show on patching it really puts into perspective that you know for individuals like ourselves who have been. Living in this area for a period of time I think sometimes we we take for granted because we're here. But then when we hear nice comments and experiences from people. Who aren't necessarily from the area how much they enjoy it. And makes this really fortunate that we could live in and around an area such as high point nine. Airlines that part of Sanchez has been twice the first time McCain. He said. You've got you really have something's. A year later. Because they contacted me directly so I wanna be on the possibly gain nanny in less than well you know in that way can you can bet that he said listen make it work I mean his. Would naturally have no. On being an and so we made it work and he says you know. He gets out walks around in the audience and face it everyone makes him feel comfortable Newton. And warming unity that is system by the government can't. You know it's a revived that is possible. That's really it's just kind of hard to explain you kind of have to radio family see for yourself President Clinton mentioned that because Joseph and Patrick reminded me of last year when Kenny G Cain. And I will be honest I've never had an opportunity and I really say I can probably marked at all my bucket list finally got to see. You know great performer in Kenechi. But not just in seeing him perform but having a chance to really chat with him in between especially when he. Helped Alps where's the presentation of the instruments to the kids. I thought that was just absolutely fantastic and it yeah and I'm sure those kids walked away seen hanging. I actually got encouragement and mentor ship. One of the best in the business but such a down to earth gentleman in Kinney. And especially when when he was plane into school and opted down. Aisles and. I remember correctly he invited a couple up on stage and so when when you walk away with great memories like that I think that released icing on the cake is that only gets. A room you know we head. Marcus Miller and we've put on Davis employ an opulent know that. Markets got started it was Davis him now. Though. When I booked us a test in the use. Possibility of something magical happened could have you know exactly you know that. Win markets came up one Davis ambulances. And they handed base tool. It was you know just something unique in that. Script exactly and then after woods. I was top in the days into you know. And around the world many times have been several festivals but this is only happened three times in my career. He says in this is one of it's Anderson he's either because he was just a status in our and he didn't even have to participate is again seen. Then go back and forth and wasn't rehearsed it was just grandeur love of music. Exactly exactly so already a family that's why the three of us are really excited. To be back to talk about. But John Coltrane international jazz and blues festival I can't believe we've gone through these first few minutes already the first half of the show but John Patrick let's take a quick break as we I. Ottmar it's not about to get people ready. And of course the event every year Labor Day weekend on September 3 and fourth. So looking forward to I cannot where I'm at and added that second second second and third I'm thinking about last year and that's right. So again gentlemen looking forward to September 2 and third. This is a great week again and again the weekend. If you'll have something to do we got some for you definitely plan. And we're gonna come back with much more here on the weekend edition of community focus will be back. Right after this it's more the weekend edition of community focus heard an intercom stations thanking you radio family. Joining me Rene and members of our community focused Stanley and Joseph Williams and Patrick department. Greats conversation gentlemen thank you very much. As we continue talking about the seventh annual John Coltrane international jazz and blues festival it is this their fame weekend. September 2 and third oak hollow part beautiful High Point, North Carolina. And Joseph and hashing before we went to break we were talking about a lot of things highlights. That have taken place over the years. Eileen of course last year's great show and what we can look forward to as far as all the performances for this year. Patrick I wanted to we were just talking about this before we got back from break. There is a nice documentary. That the community will have an opportunity to see in addition to coming to the festival this year can we talk about the. And it that's correct among the things to try to do the last couple years this sore how like the fact that. Coltrane actually group now went and got his initial start playing an instrument you're not point graduated from William Penn high school how point. So Lester had a photography exhibit at the museum in this you're shown the new documentary. Chasing train that came out and gets back in the spring because can be a free screening. A Saturday morning at eleven Newman hop on museum Alexis I'm not excellent it's people. Something to do for the case that's right now is just something that you are hoping to do on a regular basis or to have before the festival every year going forward. If that is the long term plan originally who've won a stretch into cold and weak niece is this comical when you these kinds of activities and remind folks. About corporate history and how appointments one reason started the first with the sort of the people and a lot of adjustments or was he struck the area not just how is that he was here for it if he's here as well so yeah. I'm so a considerable and yeah time is no values. Yeah exactly exactly. A German speaking of which this is a great opportunity for you good to have you and and others. Who put this great festival together. How early in advance to you guys get to sit down a Serb brainstorming on these great ideas to to get not just the artist to come to perform but like I mentioned. In the first half of our program we're gonna Wear promise you we're dedicated to especially for parents who have young ones to really have a desire. To want to further their learning. And have these wonderful musical gifts and talents with the essay writing contest but but how early do you guys get to sit down and it's going to be a fun part of the shop. Oil all have different roles with reversible in terms of my role in terms of securing talent Bryant am I'm thinking about. Eighteen in nineteen now none you really have to kind of be. Panic in the gaming Kyra I know really long term you know whose soaring and try to be in their characterization because. Eighteen is probably being planned no work. Out now among mark completed you know we are they going to be right though you knew you wanna be an economist aces and hey you know I can't get you this year but I went in 2019. Cents up the net or together right. And you're going to be in the East Coast think about me you know. Exactly and that's that's really Smart to do because and we think about how quickly this year. It's about to come ago because we're well past the halfway mark of 2017 so you 2018 are being. Right around the corner we can really say the same amount of money nineteen. An intense festivals are doing I think. Well. It is good events they they feel good event and so I I think that the best on a great talent yet you really got to be hated like that you. She mentioned that you know because when you think. John Coltrane international jazz and blues festival. You really especially if you are parents of of young children are just children in general. What is the year to do that the whole family can enjoy. And there's just certain. Venues are just certain events that really everybody can't be apart. There either say like maybe perhaps to cutie but if that's the right way to describe it and other events that. It's something that's really not suitable for young children that only mom and dad and and other adults can enjoy but this is something much. Can bring the kids you can bring ought to uncle didn't that never view the whole gambit didn't bring it you can bring everyone and you know people some people. When you say to dance they think of an adult older and honor and I think he's fiscally as can be the foundation. And zoo. A musical grease confided jazz musician to complete anything's in camp rock artist a complete. So if you can master Janzen had your own career is very is a very good point. You know that puts me in the mind dance that's speaking than in spotlighting another. Incredible. Past performance. When Leila Hathaway came. And I will be honest I only heard about start cute puppy through advertisements. As I had no idea what to expect. Until these guys said this two page and they just blew my mind you talk about variety in talent. All of the same time coming across in their performance. Is that Lee you know. In looking at talent to bring I heard about and occupy OP win they were nominated for a Grammy need kind of and C look new right and these guys are unique meaning all our Susan I'm Leo Berkeley of lead and they all. We're friends and they just jammed together and a really kind of Cree it create in the end. They would do these kind of jam sessions. And invite various artist and he invited Leila. Indeed she seems like just the ideal fit you for that exactly and you know allow people here Leila that they don't realize that lately cams from. A he hits frantic pedigree is exactly in the industry. But they did today allow performance and it was then nominated for a Grammy in the in their one wow so. So why now you know so you start asking people. Are you coping now are whom BA it well I guess. You know. I have an opportunity I wanna get them you so it worked out the cards that line and I guess and occupy a B and Leila half seemed to share as fast and then you know they did what I hope would have been yeah they participated in each of this and they really did. And just the energy that I had a chance to see from the side of the stage. In looking out on the audience I mean everybody from what I can com. I don't think you had too many peoples and to count because when they got to those. Really high tempo you know sets. Or remove and that's really great and you're right that's why it. An atmosphere like that even if you have never been to a festivals such as this. I would highly recommend radiant and the if you're newbie. Or if your regular doing this year after year after year. Again Joseph and Patrick is really something for him to bring bring bringing young kids we expose them they will be surprised you have rise over my room you know would they would gate from. Exactly got exposed to elicit great transition because I wanted to talk about. Another. Importance of the John Coltrane. International jazz and blues festival it not only of course highlights great performances. From well known jazz artist but it also shines a spotlight on our next future generation. Of kids who were musically talented. And you give them that opportunity through a wonderful essay writing content still I think. You know we other groups that we need to do something you know you you have fund raisers and Coltrane is a nonprofit organization but. No one you know other than the festival they don't really see what happens. With the proceeds. Would eat and so we wanted to come on something that. People can touch and feel immediately. And I think. The student essay was one of those vehicles that we vote that we can touch young people's lives yeah. Immediately and then let the audience actually see them and let them touch and feel and communicate with people that they idolize or they wanna. Grow up to be as talented. Are you to just improve their craft. Exactly or even pattern a similar style after individuals that that they listen to. And it's not just a proud moment gentlemen for moms and dads and family members just really proud moment. For us as a community. And because you know you you obviously have a music teacher. That helped and really just. Encouraging that talent and when those kids have an opportunity. In whatever grade you know a lot of them go on from say middle school to continue to play an instrument through high school and they do it through college and then some even. Really pursue it as professional career. In the exactly some something they may never be. The next Carlos Santana row in but they the music as a key part of their life that can actually. Went when we called some of those winners in and out of their parents and you hear that fears of of joy cry when they say hey look my. My son has been wanting his commitment. In that we can afford to rent is over. Is broke in and and assists expensive just to get offenses in this event is it too was trying to figure out how to give him an instrument and then have to participate yet. In the distant tears of joy is where if it you know it is her audience I think Patrick and we we can. Talk about this one of our mandates that we wanna really kind of expand on with those shortages or the reductions enough funding in the arts. You know the cold spring festival wanna be put itself in a position to kind of skills toys answer win when expanded now only two. Just our area one and the wise they are now seen this kind of that's more Marat. An excellent thing thank you Patrick and John Forbes were speaking on that and before we go through this year is a list of recipients. I wanna say kudos to the sponsorships of the partnership session that area businesses that are are willing to. Whether it's through donation or just as as a gift in itself. To to give these instruments to the skits. If there who have a great partner with key aides. Yes to. Manufacturing music man effect it is helpless. Subsidize some of the costs I think this year. In. I think our retail. Is is miss probably. In the 40000 well. Yep awfully thousand dollars for an instrument and we giving out this that's fantastic in that scurry over August over the years has been. I think we're given in the way over sixty instruments and number. 120000 dollar buy you land those are some mutant advocates and ultimately yeah sponsors that problem Clinton and I use a partnership. Is amazing experience every European and the watch it is. The general audience opportunity. Get wrapped up in what's happening and then it happens much KG comes on talks. Exit the only vote is amazing improving. Significantly upon it like a Mickey truck body last year kind of really stepped up and helped us a security instruments and names among the sponsors. You know this year as slave families. Nuts and they opened up when university. And a supporter and you have a Morency was trying to grow this list as well exactly and ended. As the expert successful well. Right so so we ending for two it really any area businesses that are.

Two days array of family we just can't stress enough if you've not had the opportunity and you strongly been considering it. Let this be the first year I think this'll be a great story. For those who have not had an opportunity to enjoy. A festivals such as this in the past and for us regular school. We'll have done this year after year. It's obvious John Patrick White people do keep coming back. And we definitely need the community's support and hasn't come out meet people from other regions that. Normal opportunity. To do I think the Patrick loans they you know we we work hard to try to bring this does it really did and we gonna continue to bring great talent and we need to support. Absolutely. And that's a great time in a patch records you know how can we as a community in contact with you to continue in that supports. Right well I mean there's information on the web site about contacting us about sponsorship opportunities. My Joseph were trying to expand Minko we used throughout the year marksman or earnings of the department folks on the in some musical performances and opening and so I don't to those who have never been to the website and etiquette coal train Jazz Fest dot com okay.
