The fifth annual Jamaica Family Fun Festival, sponsored by the Sutherland Springs Community Association, welcomes everyone to come out from noon to 10 p.m. on Saturday, May 3, to the grounds of the Sutherland Springs Community Building at 411 Fourth St. in Sutherland Springs.

Jamaica translated from Spanish means “charity festival.” It is pronounced “hah-my-ka,” rather than “juh-may-ca.”

The free event will feature a variety of festival foods, games, vendor booths, bling, and musical entertainment that will bring you to your feet.

DJ Danny Morales, aka DRM Productions, will set the mood with his lively collection of tunes, leading to local singer Letty Garcia, as well as local variety band, “The Flex,” featuring René, Louis Garza, and Paul Allen, who will be joined by Kat Martinez and Ray Figueroa, bringing the audience hits from the ’60s to today.

Also on hand to entertain will be “Elora and Gasoline Alley,” “Blue Shift,” and Michael Anthony and “Broken Duckfeet,” an all-original Texas Edge Country rock band. Julian Gonzales, a local singer-songwriter and senior at Floresville High School, has a repertoire consisting of Billy Joel, “Fleetwood Mac,” and “Incubus,” as well as original music.

“Pinto” will take festival-goers on a ride with his traditional rock and roll style, playing all the oldies but goodies. Keeping it traditional through the close of the evening, “Conjunto Puro Corazon” is scheduled to perform true traditional Conjunto music. Formed in 2012, the group has played major festivals throughout the San Antonio area and Sutherland Springs.

Be sure to read the April 30 issue of Wilson County News for interesting facts about the bands and genres.

Interested vendors, there is still space available. Call Alice Garcia at 830-534-8563 for more information.
