Well to all that performed or attended we made it!!!!!! It was difficult challenging and highly stressfull but all in all it was legendary.. We had the local news,, the city counsil, the mayor hell even a handfull of armed sheriffs tried to shut us down but we had "perserverance" (Shout out to hatebreed) we proved that if we stick together and not give up or back down we could do anything we set our minds to.. I will look back at this fest with obvious personal disappointment in certain areas details and aspects of the production side alone. But also carry with me the most fondest memories of the event i built from the bottom up!!!!

I want literally each and every one of you to know from the bottom of my heart both as a musician and now friend I did this for u for me and for us...... Its not often we r able to perform on a stage of that magnitude and i felt it was time!!!!!!
In closing we stuck together from standing shoulder to shoulder as a Kalamity's magnet charged up to a in door private sit down performance by the beautifully crafted sound of birdhauser a dual vocal powerhouse swell that Drove us battling the heat as heads bobbed to money being made ova all April had her Blades and felt the trauma then shifted into a national overdrive..... i will always work to bring the music to the masses but more importantly to those that deserve a chance to be heard that maybe wouldnt b givin the chance otherwise. It couldnt have been done without some truly amazing passionate giving people that i would like u individually take one minute to message for me cause they got no recognition susan olson whittle food and beverages, charis ingram event coordinator, Dave Barron and chad Eastman sound and lights. find them in my friends list and show a little appreciation please. I know from the fest I made some bonds that will last years and I am grateful. never give up, never give in, never settle Less reach for your dream(s) search for more, and know your worth!!!

thank u all and i am so proud of what we accomplished thank you for being a part of The Freaks on the Farm Fest

Hey everyone it's Charis here.... I just wanted to say a few things, before Chris gets up and takes over the computer! LOL! I am so impressed with the amount of talent and good music I heard yesterday. We had some bumps in the road and rough starts with the weather but all in all everyone stuck it out and for that I am thankful. I for one can not say thank you enough to all who traveled so far for this event. The attendance I would have like to have seen better and those that missed it missed out on some of the best metal, and rap out there. Get Money...ya'll are a class act and look forward to doing more in the future!
I cant just mention one with out all the rest and dont know where or who to start with so lets just say to the whole line up.... You all were amazing and good people much less great performers. Thank you.
For all those who helped behind the scenes, Susan, and Hollie that means you guys too, I am forever indebted.

Chris, Stress is not our good suit. And like Bonnie and Clyde we are dynamite when ignited, good or bad. None the less, I love you. Thanks for putting up with me, NOW can we just get back to normal?!?!?!?!
