We frickin’ love festivals... We support and work with many and we attend as many as we can. Seeing live music is the best thing in the world... Realize Bradenton has done a fabulous job of getting sponsors and artists for their festival. It’s not a long running festival but it has set high standards. Realize Bradenton does more than put on blues festivals—it is a community support organization unlike any other. 2015 was their shining moment.
