Post The Brothers and Sisters of the Suwannee
The Brothers and Sisters of the Suwannee is a group of folks that met on this forum who share the same feelings of peace and harmony through music. The centerpiece and gathering place of our group is, of course, the Wanee Festival. This Wanee will be our third, and it's guaranteed to be the best one yet.

Besides being apolitical, we also don't consider race, creed, color, sex, nationality or religion when embracing a brother or sister in the spirit of friendship. That's what it's like at Wanee. We become a big family for a few days a year, and every year the family gets bigger and better!

There is some true magic that happens when Wanee rolls around. Our unofficial leader is Doug (A.K.A. Wanee Lover, our forum moderator). Him and his wife, exemplify the spirit of Wanee. I've learned a lot from them about kindness, giving, and friendship; and how to produce good karma.

I'm not mentioning any more names, but we've had our fair share of heartwarming sentiment from many members of this forum.

We've had people give away and/or buy complete strangers tickets. We have a guy who makes a load of Wanee punch for all to share. We have a girl who cooks monster meals for our party. We have people bringing bottles of liquor to share. We have so many random acts of kindness going on, it's impossible to list here. You get the picture.

The great part is that all newcomers are welcome to join in. If you want to be a part of it, all you got to do is show up at one of our gatherings with a handshake and a smile. The Brothers and Sisters of the Suwannee are far from being perfect, in fact we're still a work in progress, but I truly believe in the underlying force that brings us all together. It can be best described as:

The Spirit of The Suwannee

Well said Lou! I'm sure this year will be another great one. Can't wait to see everyone again. One of the best things about the Wanee experience is continuing to run into more "friends" everywhere you go. Definitely a homey feeling. Grandma C. Hope you're coming early! We'll have to talk about menus.
