Gregg Clark

It is with a heavy heart that we mourn the loss of our dear friend Gregg Clark.  He has been our Music Coordinator for 10 years.  His band, The Royal Blues, have played our festival since the beginning.  We will miss his passion for music, his layed back style, his great personality and his laugh.  Rest in Peace Gregg.
