Kevin Dunn started with the idea to have a few bands on the sidewalk, to help raise funds for a friend in need of help with medical bills. Since then CommUnity Fest 2017 has been growing in scale to become a big show pulling talent from all over Arab Alabama and the surrounding area! We got to sit down with Kevin Dunn as well as two up and coming musicians that will be performing at Community Fest, Abby Hufnagle and Brandon Elder. We also get to meet the official mascot of Community fest Duke the Flamingo and even get into some interesting discussions about silly puddy.
Don't miss today's episode featuring four tracks recorded live from our guests including, "Call Us Anytime" and "You Amaze Me" by Abby Hufnagle, as well as "Long Way from Home" and "Gone" by Brandon Elder featuring Kevin Dunn on Bass.
Community Fest is a free show this Saturday in Arab AL located in the Cricket Wireless parking lot across from Walmart on Hwy 231. Community Fest is still accepting volunteers, get in contact now by visiting their facebook at https://www.facebook.com/CommunityFestArabAL/
