This past Friday was the finale concert for the 2012 Desoto SolJazz Music Festival. I had a chance to see some of my favorite old school acts like Cameo, Doug E. Fresh and MC Lyte perform. In addition, Grandmaster Dee of legendary rap group Whodini was on the turntables and Rachelle Farelle was nothing less than amazing.
Although the weather was super hot this particular Saturday afternoon, the mood of the crowd was great and the food was amazing. I mean what would a music festival be without fried fish and alcohol? The highlight of the festival was seeing the originator Dougie Fresh teaching the crowd how to “Dougie” and Mc Lyte performing “Self Destruction.”
