Default Personal Invitation

I hope the Foo Fighters get to see and enjoy this inspiring story. They all appear to me as down to earth type of people. Although so successful, are not too full of themselves to play in someone’s garage. 
In 1996 a farmer donated his field for a Music festival to be held on August long weekend at Minnedosa, Mb, Canada.This was to be become the first annual Classic Rock Weekend, and the annual party place for my now husband as his birthday is August 2nd. It was such a success and within 2 years , featured bands such a Harlequin, Trooper, Dr. Hook, April Wine, and Toronto for upwards of about 17,000 campers to enjoy. Other local bands also performed to keep the fields “a rockin”.
Unfortunately in 2003, the music died when it was rumoured that the event went bankrupt. A select few were determined to continue the event and formed a Co-Op. My husband, without any doubt instantly became a member along with his other music “cuzin’s” at their regular site. 2004 was the first annual RFM (rockin the fields of Minnedosa) weekend. It was a small number that attended and we were grateful that Chilliwack, Jerry Doucette and local bands were willing to perform. With donations, volunteers and time, we were able to build a brand new big stage. Last year the firsts to perform on the new stage were Tom Cochrane, Big Sugar, Sheepdogs, Sass Jordan and Prism. No one is really saying (not to jinx it) but we believe we are in upwards of 4-5000 in attendance. It was also our Honeymoon destination as we were just married last July.
For 2012, we are featuring Finger Eleven, Platinum Blonde, Norther Pikes, Saga as well as other up and coming local groups. As well, we hope we’re forced to open a second camping area, that hasn’t been needed for years!!!!!!
So many have pitched in to make this summer get together a continued success. When my husband said he had wished it was his garage they had come to play in...I said maybe they would play RFM. He laughed and said,,,good luck! Thus the reason for my letter. I just know people. I know that if time and engagements weren’t a factor, that David would bring the FF to our music festival. Even if just to relax and enjoy the music. Who knows, maybe I can prove to my husband that what he thinks is impossible.....just isn’t. August long...I’d really hope to see you there... ...someday.

Whist FF are a bunch of super nice and generous guys they are also out to make a living and if you want them to play your festival you'll have to pay. A lot. Going by what you've said it doesn't sound like you have that sort of cash.

Nice idea though and I wish your festival well.

Don't you hate that? I send them an invitation every year to play at my 4th of July party and they never show up. Down to earth, my ass indeed.

I always thought they were THE BEST, but apparently, I was wrong. Sigh.

I was born to resist that they would let me down but they did.

All my life I've searching for something like a band to come to my house. Maybe some day.

They'd have to lose everything just to find you, Mike.

What did we do? Is it because my fingernails are pretty? Or because you don't want to be my monkeywrench?

I have a choice between the bat or the belt each time I hear about the hand you've been dealt. Whine, whine, whine.

I've got another confession to make. I'm not fool. I know they won't show up.

Oh I don't care that much since that's not as big as what's flown around here.
