You will stay overnight at the nearby Holiday Inn Budd Lake hotel for two nights, and enjoy a weekend pass including pit access to the main stage to hear some of the most requested musicians of todays blues including funky Meters, Marcia Ball (2 sets), From Good Homes, Jon Cleary and The Absolute Monster Gentlemen. And wait until you hear about the food... crawfish Etouffee, po boys even alligator sausage. It's a little bit of New Orleans up north. But if we don't hear from you we can't enter you in this Mardi Gras in New Jersey. So do like Bob Porter says...Lets keep it rolling...
