What makes our event so great is that it is intimate enough to catch a good opportunity to meet the musical talent on our lineup. we ask our entertainment to hang out for at least a 3 day minimum….sometimes they do, sometimes they don’t…. so keep your phones close by 😉

You will have the opportunity to book through us at a resort room rate up to 3 days before and 2 days after the event to accommodate a longer trip or better air options.
