Doo-Nanny is most definitely
Whether you love it or hate it, you have to admit that Doo-Nanny is an utterly unique experience, nothing else quite like it anywhere.

For those unfamilar with these Columbus GA-Phenix City AL music scene events, here are the EATV-7 television specials on previous years of Doo-Nanny and Hogbottom:

Have you never been to a music festival or something?

They ALL charge an admission, most if not all many times over the small ten bucks Doo-Nanny is asking for the weekend of music and art.

Get a clue.

All about the money now though. Ten dollars just to get in, no thanks, I'll pass.
Looks like the going rate around the Columbus GA-Phenix City AL area for a eekend festival of music, and in my opinion a pretty good deal considering places downton like The Loft and Del Ranch in Smith's Station are charging up to five dollars for just a couple of hours of music.

Do you get that point yet?

$10 is WAY too much for THIS "festival" and $50 per person to camp is simply outrageous.
This thing used to be free but now it's all about making money. There is nothing you are going to do or see or hear there that is worth a $10 admission.

So, an obviously bitter, anonymous poster running down an art and music festival that is a world wide legend is going to make a difference here?

You don't want to attend? No problem.

Who would want someone like you around, so dead set on not having a good time, around anyhow?

Here's a short sample of the sort of local performers who will be attending the festival:

http://youtu.be/EBpnUOepRZg

"Will Dockery & The Conley Brothers" at Hogbottom: Will Dockery (vocals), Sandy Madaris (vocals), Henry Conley (guitar), Geno Woolfolk (keyboard), Doug Conley (bass), James McGuire (trumpet) & Dorundo Jenkins (drums).

Looking forward to another blast at Doo-Nanny in Seale Alabama this year!

Only ten bucks for a weekend of music, fun and adventure!

Maybe they can give ten dollars to the guys over at THE NAPPY ROOT to give that hermit a shave and a haircut. I can't believe a city this size has that for the spokesman of its entertainment. Its so awful. People look at Columbus and the entire forum has a hermit head icon on every page. Awful. Just awful.
Not at all, I am not a "spokesman" for anything or anybody but myself.

I do celebrate the great talents we have in the Columbus Georgia & Phenix City Alabama arts, music, poetry and related scenes, though... and what it it you do?

Besides sniff behind me whining and complaining so bitterly, of course?

Right. Nothing.

Hey ROBIN check that out.
Well, folks come from everywhere to Doo-Nanny, and even the New York Times did a favorable write-up on the Doo-Nanny and the founder, the legendary folk artist Butch Anthony.

And that's something that may have elluded you... Doo-Nanny is being written up in places like the New York Times now, hardy just a "small social event" at this point, and in fact was a world class art and music event years ago:

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/08/garden/08do...

"...LIKE a medieval village, Butch Anthony’s 80-acre family compound is a self-contained universe, and every inch of it is an expression of his prodigious creative spirit. It makes a tempting destination for folk art aficionados, as well as the sort of art world tourists who’ve already ticked Marfa, Tex., or Joshua Tree, in the California desert, off their lists. Mr. Anthony, a lanky and laconic 46-year-old who dresses exclusively in Liberty denim overalls (he owns 25 pairs) and a battered straw hat (he has 10), is a self-taught artist, builder and local hero, whom the state of Alabama once chose to make a Christmas tree ornament for the White House — the Bush 43 version. He is also the host of the Doo Nanny..."

"...Like Burning Man, the extreme art fair held each summer in the Nevada desert, the Doo Nanny offers both a burning effigy and an exercise in creative camping. Mr. Anthony has thoughtfully provided a tepee, an outdoor kitchen, a solar-powered shower, outhouses and a wood-fueled hot tub, all built from and decorated with the sort of handmade trash-into-art pieces — ethereal chandeliers pieced together with cow bones and twigs gnawed by beavers — that are his specialty. It now attracts an intrepid crowd of makers and their fans who gather on the last weekend in March not only to show their work — and sell some, too, if they’re lucky — but to hang out with like-minded friends and partake of Mr. Anthony’s particular brand of Southern hospitality, which is certainly as homespun and country as his accent, but has an impish, renegade backbeat. It is also a chance to see Mr. Anthony on his own, very atmospheric, turf."

No, Doo-Nanny isn't for eveyone... but who would /want/ it to be?

I have been to Doo Nanny twice and can honestly say the music wasn't that good, but it was free.
You need to get that point.

Nothings changed yet they see fit to start making a profit by charging a ten dollar cover, now instead of a folksy grassroots event it is commercialized. Whats next?, Coors Light sponsered Mud Wrestling?
This event like many before it will now fizzle into oblivion where it came all from the greed of its organizers.

I am glad I could clear up your confusion and misconceptions on this.

Okay, so the entertainment at Doo-Nanny isn't worth paying for in your opinion.

I got that the first few times you posted that here, so if the music and other aspects are not worth a few bucks, then just stay at home... seems simple to me.

Or better yet, go spend your ten dollars on something you do enjoy, something that doesn'y make you whine and complain about so much, say a movie or cover at a nightclub, or even another music festival.

Fair enough?

In other words, if you disagree with Will Dockery, you are considered whining and please quit posting on this thread.
Funny thing is he whines in his responses more than the original poster,
Is it hypocrisy? You decide for yourself.

To /you/ it isn't... so you're better off just sstaying home.

For those who do want to attend, here's some video from last year's Doo-Nanny, well worth ten bucks for a weekend of art and entertainment... in /my/ opinion.

Well, in this day and age, I guess ten bucks is considered a lot, but that's really pretty low compareed to most, or all, music festivals... the beauty of the internet is that previous Doo-Nanny performances have been filmed by East Alabama Cable-TV and can be watched right here free of charge:

Heck,$10 is only... two bucks per part.
I call that a bargain, my friend... and if you can't afford that pittance, maybe you'd best saty home, I reckon.

I simply stated that this is the first year that they are charging admission.
For $10.00 you get nothing more than you got last year for free.
The quality of entertainment is not worth $10.00.
I have no problem with charging for food and drinks.
$50 per person camping is really high though.

I think by charging a admission it loses the folksy and bohemian nature that once defined this festival and has become a way for someone to make money instead of a gathering of free spirited former and wannabe hippies, over the hill hipsters and unkempt smelly characters.

Okay, I admit I might agree with you in some ways, but I also understand the need for Butch Anthony to try to make the event worth his time... there's many costs involved, and, to be honest, insurance for a public event such as this also has to be considered.

I understand you may not be able to afford the ten dollars, and luckily there are many ways to get arund the fee, for instance, if you're one of the many staff members, crew members, or are one of the artists, musicians, poets or other performers at Doo-Nanny there's no charge for admission or camping.

Perhaps if you really enjoyed Doo-Nanny you'd get with Butch at Possum Trot and ask to volunteer... but since you've stated over and over how much you despise Doo-Nanny, I simply advised you to stay home and watch a football game or something, rather than get into these details which you obviously have no interest in, Panther.

Hope that clears up your confusion, and have a nice day... and maybe pass by you at Del Ranch tomorrow, at the open mic.

No, I just get tired of someone whining about the same thing over and over.

It's really very simple.

If you don't like Doo-Nanny and don't think the event is worth a measely ten dollars for a weekend of art, entertainment and adventure, then don't attend.

Seems fair enough, right?

Well, I can see no reason to justify $10.00 admission. I would go for something to do if it was free. As I said, nothing that goes on there is worth $10, nothing. I see this thing fizzling out in the next few years.
Hope that clears up your confusion and your misconceptions and sets the record straight.
