Dozens of Musicians Play LoCo Musicians Festival

Close to 40 local musicians, ranging from the well-known to the up-and-coming, gathered at 868 Estate Estate Vineyards on Sunday for a seven-hour jam session to help out some of the lesser-known musicians.

Local favorites like Joey and the Waitress, Gary Smallwood, Emma Rowley and organizer Todd Brooks band Todd Brooks and the Pour Decisions shared the stage with newer musicians—including 12-year-old Sela Campbell, the LoCo Rising Star Showcase performer.

At the event, some young musicians were presented with new sound equipment—not always easy to afford with the money from playing local gigs—paid for with money raised through the festival.

Last year’s event drew 1,500 people and this year, 2,000 people were expected to attend, according to winery co-owner Nancy Deliso.
