I'll take the heat on the special guest. Derek initially said he thought he could make it out, however, that changed in the last week. JJ was in the midwest, so that was impossible. I didn't mean to mislead anyone but I don't mind starting rumors to help a worthy charity sell more tickets. I hope y'all still felt the show was worth attending.

No worries Paul! Indeed, it was a good cause, I'm so glad I attended, and I'm also glad I could support the cause. Thanks for pulling together a fine weekend in a short time. And being as we are in the height of hurricane season, and with threatening weather, umm, *threatening* all weekend, it was no small feat! Good job w/ the stage workaround and all that.

I saw lots of my extended Suwannee family, and heard a ton of great music. Smiles everywhere. Ain't nothing better :D

And: $50,000 raised for the families affected. Win - win - win. Let's did it again, soon!

Paul: No apologies needed.

I'm with B-Bob (literally): A good time at a GREAT venue for a very worthy cause.

What's not to love? :D

Both the wife and I are very glad we went. No regrets.

I saw many of 'the usual suspects'; maybe a few less than usual - but hey: It wasn't our usual event.

And ain't that karma? What goes around, comes around: So make sure what you put out there is good. Cause one day it will be coming back atchya... I hope our little good deeds spread out like ripples in black water.

BIG thank you to Paul and all for starting this idea. Bigger thanks to all the folks who made it happen. It takes a village.

(Fair warning to thewolf: Next time I see you up there, I'm gonna introduce myself. You've seen me a bunch - it's time we met.)

Peace yall...

Paul, you are such a great guy in so many ways!! To even ask if we thought it was still worth it?!? It was an amazing time and raising that much money makes my heart smile!!!
You are a stand up man, my brother, and I thank you very much for everything you did to make it happen!
On the plus side--with it being a small fest, I was able to give you a hug!! Cherry on top of a magical weekend!

Just returned from the Flood Jam!!! Great job by the park and excellent music. Highlight was when Peter Rowen joined Donna and the Buffalo early in the set then came back and jammed again. Another classic event!!
