Lazlo's Corner

I am writing this column on a sunny Sunday afternoon. It is over 50 degrees today, what would normally be considered unseasonable weather for mid-February, but we have had an unseasonable weather kind of year.

This sun and warmth makes me pine for a good outdoor festival. I have often said New Jersey needs a big local music fest, with multiple stages, lots of food, rides & games, and an arts walk area. I've seen many of these components different places, maybe even altogether on a small scale, but wouldn't it be nice to do this on a large scale?

Unfortunately, the problem isn't finding a way to put something like this together, with a skilled team it could be done... maybe not easily, but it wouldn't be reinventing the wheel either.

No, the sad state of affairs is it is difficult to get a handful of people to come out to a venue to see a show. If one were to work on something of this scale, it would need a huge crowd of people to show up to make it a success. I've spent over 19 years trying to figure out that secret formula of getting people to support the local original music scene, and while not a complete failure, I've been aware for quite a long time that I may never grasp that secret formula... it may not even exist.

But, I am not giving up. I continue to do and trying to figure out how to bring the local original music scene to a larger audience. Because I would still love to work with people to put together a huge local music festival and make it a success
