I was working the Cincy Blues Fest this weekend, so I did not at the Jazz Fest, now called the Macy's Music Festival, but were locals missing from the event?
We had a ton of stuff going on along the river, so that may have kept people away from the concert at PBS, but is that was is keeping people away?
The Cincy Blues Fest did great, and was filled with mostly local people, so I don't know why Macy's didn't get the locals in.
I must say that if anyone is upset that 20,000 people came to town and were the majority at the concert, then I think they need to rethink their priorities. The region, and the City, did great. Music Fusion demonstrated that we are a vibrant city with a rich cultural, largely musical, tradition.
