Comments on the Lakeland music scene: 

Jamie: It’s becoming very vibrant with new players and new interpretations of music itself. There are different things going on that were not five years ago.

David Brimer: It’s thriving and more people need to take it seriously.

Thoughts on increasing the interest or numbers in the crowd when it comes to getting people out of the house:

Jamie: Promotion.  It needs to be word of mouth and also social media; that is the language everyone speaks today.

David:  Awareness of the quality.  I don’t think the people think the music is quality.

Anything else?

Jamie: Peace, love and music.

David: They don’t know all the places they have music; Facebook only goes so far.
