The event included an announcement of some of the artists who will perform for the Roots 'N' Blues 'N' BBQ Festival this year. The event had a live concert, food and drinks and a mini-fashion show. Festival coordinator Julie King said the purpose of the event was to find a way to encourage the VIP pass-holders of the Roots 'N' Blues 'N' BBQ Festival.

"We just wanted to bring them out here and have a good time with them," King said. "The purpose of the event is to keep the festival alive all year round."

Some of the artists announced include Brandi Carlile, Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors and Robert Cray. The rest of the line-up could not be announced because of contract obligations.
