The 2008 Halifax Jazz & Blues Festival Committee would like to take this time to thank all of the wonderful people who have helped make this event a success.
Special thanks to committee members Zack Artis, Robert “Notty Rasta” Brooks, Kevin Bledsoe, Angela Hill, Mary Howard, Michael Jefferson, Ersecelle Miles, Cecil Parham, Malik Stith, Jimmy Walston and Jim Wilson.
None of this could have been done without the enthusiastic support of city management and its agencies, the Departments of Police, Fire, Public Works, Health, Revenue, and Recreation. The guidance in the final stages by Dr. Elsie Jarmon of Risk Management proved invaluable. We are eternally grateful to have capable and competent city employees in our midst.
Many thanks go to our sponsors who have given of their time and money to support this event. In addition to our listed sponsors a special recognition to Club LeVenue, for allowing the committee to hold meetings at their facility. As I have probably omitted names or businesses that were most helpful in this process, I ask that you charge it to my head and not to my heart.
From the Triangle to Old Towne, the preservation of the historical integrity of our community is of utmost importance. Not only are we listening to the music of the past, we are listening to the hopes and aspirations of our community today. As the transformation of Petersburg continues to unfold, we see a magnificent light that shines in the region attracting the “Vision for the Future!!”
