Sweet, Sweet Watermelon

Wednesday, August 12, 2009

The 30th Annual Cave City Watermelon Festival drew a huge crowd despite the heat Aug. 6-8. Thursday night Rockin' Luke Stroud performed his Jerry Lewis rendition to a packed park. The trailer full of prize winning melons were proudly displayed for the crowd throughout the weekend event. For more photos of the festival, see next weeks Villager Journal.

Luke Stroud can't compare to Cherokee Village's Jason D. Williams. Jason's the man!!!

Luke Stroud is one of the most talented musicians anyone will ever see. Not only does he put on an incredible performance (He's self taught, having only been playing since 1995), he's also the kindest and must caring man you'll ever meet.

Jason D. Williams and Luke both know each other and respect each other. However, coming from me, someone who's been a fan of Luke's for almost 10 years, Luke knows what he is doing not only on piano, but guitar, bass, drums and vocals as well. He knows what rock 'n' roll is all about, so much so that Jerry Lee, Elvis Presley, Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Hank Williams Sr. would be proud.

Rock on, Luke!
