Hey there! Are you tired of giving your mom the same old boring Mother's Day gifts every year? Well, it's time to switch things up and give your mom an experience she'll never forget.
Join us for our upcoming BBQ and blues festival, and give your mom the ultimate throwback experience.
We're thrilled to announce that our featured headliner for the festival is none other than DieDra, The Alabama Blues Queen! Raised on the dirt roads of Washington, North Carolina, DieDra was singing from the time she could talk, becoming the lead singer for her family's gospel group, "The Tucker Family." It wasn't until she was 30 years old that she got a manager and her first gig opening for R&B legend Betty Wright. Since then, she has won 19 blues awards and nominations, been inducted into the Alabama Blues Hall of Fame, and crowned "The Alabama Blues Queen" by the Blues Society.
Also joining us on the stage is HBO, BET, Def Jam Comedian Shang Forbes. Shang has been seen on CBS’S The Late Late Show 2X BET's Comic View Grand Stand Winner HBO 's Def Jam & Def Poetry, Gotham LIVE, STARZ 1st Amendment, Si TV, Mun2 Comics Unleashed, Comedy Central’s Jamie Foxx Laffapaloolza ,Premium Blend & Gotham Comedy LIVE.

But the festival isn't just about the music. We've also invited local chefs, pitmasters, grillmasters, and vendors to participate in the event. You'll get to enjoy mouth-watering BBQ food and tasty treats from some of the best local establishments around.

Now, I know what you're thinking. "Why should I go to a festival when I can just make my mom a nice brunch at home?" Well, let me tell you, there's something special about experiencing something new and different with your mom. Plus, it's a great way to get out of the house and have some fun in the sun.
And if you're still searching for the perfect Mother's Day gift, surprise your mom with tickets to our festival. Trust me, she'll appreciate the effort you put in to create a special and unique experience just for her.
So, what are you waiting for? Dust off your dancing shoes, grab your mom, and join us for a day filled with food, music, and fun. You won't regret it!
