It was mentioned that no one gets paid but the Lowery band and Lowery for the use of his sound equipment. Thats where the money is spent each year. Its a shame someone else can't be in charge of the music. They might do a better job,and not charge the chamber. It's called community service folks.

I think they should limit the music to real musicians and bands. There is a lot of local talent,and most would play for free. Tired of suffering through the same bad acts each year.Did enjoy the few new acts this year. Your not a real musician or band if you don't play a instrument. Please no more kareokee.
You know every one is a critic, but if you think you can do any better with what we have around the area, then maybe you need to see about lining up next years acts?

The 'Windy' band was just awful. Entire fest was not too exciting.
The comments about our band and the local band are very disappointing.....and I'm sure you represent a small % of Cooper. The sound wasn't our fault...Apparently you don't recognize real talent and it appears as though you are a coward, because you don't show your real name. We love Chiggerfest and will be back next year, so you may want to make other plans for that day!!!! GET A LIFE!!!!!

It's true! The sound system was not our fault! The Mic's were removed from our drums, sound levels for each instrument were WAY off balance, the singers mic's were also not correct.

When a band can't here themselves or the others playing it makes it extremely difficult to play correctly!

Contact Monty O'Neal in Paris. He has a Professional sound system, mixing boards, and monitors, so any band can hear what they are doing and it will be a much more pleasing experience for the bands and the people listening to the music!

Did you think maybe people really don't like your band? Locals read that you would be back this year and were disappointed.Same bad music each year. Someone needs to find some new acts. Great music makes a festival fun and gets the crowd to come back each year and spend money. Bad music runs people off-for good. I don't know why Elvis wasn't here on Friday,but i do know people liked him. The locals expected him on Friday night and were disappointed. If things don't get better there won't be enough vendors or people attending to have a Chiggerfest.Several vendors didn't make money and they won't be back.

music was good and the sound WAS loud if you sat close but then if you sat close to the band why would you be talking while the music was playing? The sound system might have needed tweaking but the bands were good and as for the "Windy" band? Sounds like sour grapes to me. Maybe you wish you could play somewhere and nobody wants to listen to you? People who do nothing always gripe about those who do and in a mean way. I have heard them play other places and always enjoy their music.

I don't think that Windy woman likes you all talking about how bad her little band was. I heard better sounds coming out of the twin stacks on my Pete.

I would rather them get someone else next year. Maybe someone who could sing. 10-4?

I bet the chamber really appreciates your immature comments. Your telling people not to come back if they don't like your band.Seems like maybe you shouln't be invited back. Your not acting very professional. Your behavior reflects badly on you and your band. You should think before you post on a public blog.

We came from out of town to the festival and found that when we tried to sit and listen to the band, people in front of us kept standing up and talking to friends which is just rude no matter what.

I know how much work goes into putting these festivals together and how hard it can be to get vendors and bands. There are ALWAYS people who would never think of volunteering to help but will complain and and talk down about things. If you have a problem with a band or a vendor, talk to your festival organizers (so OTHER vendors and bands will not refuse to come because of how they might be treated after) or better yet - volunteer to help!

how can you talk to the organizer. talking to the lowery kid is useless. he's gonna get who he wants to play and sing. he thinks he's great. he needs to get out of the business and let someone else be in charge. that's the only way to change the music situation at chiggerfest.

To: The Chamber of Commerce
get someone else to orgainze the bands & music.
change won't hurt.

Disappointed. Not enough food vendors, not enough of anything. Music on Friday was awful. Where did they get him? I expected better. The last couple of years were pretty good, I just expected it would be bigger and better. Too bad.

That Elvis guy was a joke. I don't know why they didn't get Royce Slough back. I could sit and listen to him and would think it was Elvis for sure up there on the stage.
