Re: “Kinfolks Soul Food Festival has swindled several cities this year. Is Kansas City next?

Between my ticket, food, drinks, gas money and lodging...I spent $310. I feel as I have been RAPED. VIOLATED to the highest degree. It is VERY hard to deal with "black folks". We were treated like trash and criminals from entrance to exit. Very inhumane. They sold us $2 bottles of HOT water, then charged $2 for a cup holding 3 or 4 cubes of ice to make it cold. I am thoroughly disappointed. I feel disrespected deeply. At a time especially where we need to be united and showing each other love and deep respect and affection...we were treated WORSE than white people have been accused of doing. I can't believe this whole weekend was a total loss. I am truly agitated. Something must be done!!

Re: “Kinfolks Soul Food Festival has swindled several cities this year. Is Kansas City next?

I also attended KC soul food festival. I was excited about the venue! People must b true fans of these groups because it was HOT! I was very disappointed! The "technical difficulties" were ridiculous! Too much time between acts! Due to them, we didn't even get to see Guy or SOS! We drove 3 hrs . I barely saw any performances due to the woman with the huge umbrella in front of me ! Preferred seating my ass!

Re: “Kinfolks Soul Food Festival has swindled several cities this year. Is Kansas City next?

and to respond to chrismasb30@yahoo.com - don't hate on them for not advertising. It would have encouraged more people to come out and be ripped off. The Pitch generally does a good job with anyone willing to pay to advertise (they are a for profit paper). I'm positive this isn't racial in any way. And if you attended this sham of an event, you should still be irritated or whatever about that, not a lack of advertising. As far as I'm concerned, 103.3 and 107.3 should be apologizing or at least having some dialogue for the people of KC

Re: “Kinfolks Soul Food Festival has swindled several cities this year. Is Kansas City next?

This was the sloppiest, most unorganized rip-off of a concert I've ever been to. There were more than an hour between some sets. It seemed that they had never set up for a band before. We sat in VIP and I am not sure what we paid for. There were no concessions or amenities in our section. The lines were ridiculous, they RAN OUT of bottled water, charged $2.00 for tiny cups of ice in 100 degree heat. And shame on the service staff - no thank you's, no good service, no personality, no nothing. I will definitely NEVER EVER attend an event by this organization again. Ever. Ever. And Kudos to Mint Condition who was the only group who acknowledged, in a subtle way, that the event was crap. They are always a class act and the reason we paid. All future ticket purchasers, be warned - no matter how much you like the group, DO NOT GO! They won't be on the stage for more than 20-30 minutes anyway

Re: “Kinfolks Soul Food Festival has swindled several cities this year. Is Kansas City next?

This concert was extremely UNORGANIZED!! It took 1-2 hours in between sets for acts to come on and sing for 15 minutes with horrible sound! People were passing out in the heat IN LINE to get $2 water. 6 people fainted before 7pm. I listened to Guy while walking to my car at 12:25am!! Done with them

Re: “Kinfolks Soul Food Festival has swindled several cities this year. Is Kansas City next?

I have been to most of the fest. this was the worst, the time to change over in between acts was way to long and way to much /the lines for bathrooms and food was crazy /and what really upsets me is that whoever was in charge never once came out and spoke to the crowd /for a $50 dollar ticket in the hot sun ,I felt the crowd was treated with no respect /but in many dealings with our folk we tend to never see the big picture ;make $5 dollars today and screw everybody or do people right and make 5,000,000 I would want to sell ltickets for life vs one year /make people want to come back is what I always would want to do /I will never attend again

Seeing as christmasb30@yahoo.com was so passionate about this event, I am shocked not to see any follow up comments....

Good ol' Chuck Byrd.

Likeable as hell, but dont take his checks. When he was in the body shop biz, he wrote more hot checks Frank DelMurro.

And thats a lot.

Re: “Kinfolks Soul Food Festival has swindled several cities this year. Is Kansas City next?

This was the worst show I have been to. We had more intermission than concert. All the groups were a mess. Some couldn't sing and others didn't even attempt to give a good show. I will never go again. As hot as it was they could of given out free water for our 2 hour wait. Chris Paul and Huggy Low Down left before Cameo even on at 9:15. I thought they were the MC's. Don't spend your money on anything the Kinfolks name is on, because you will waste your money.

Re: “Kinfolks Soul Food Festival has swindled several cities this year. Is Kansas City next?

KC did not end Kinfolks' run of bad nights. I'm sorry to say this article is true, in every word printed. I just wish I had read it before I purchased 7 tickets at $35. Where do I start...The intermissions were 1-2 hrs between performances, only to watch a group perform 2-3 songs. The sound system was horrible, $15 for 5 chicken wings and fries, cat fish tasted like they caught it n Jersey Creek, drinks $7 for lemonade, $2 for water...Wow I can go on and on. But when Aaron Hall of the group Guy, said he was going to give us the best performance he could, dispite what the promoters said, it was confirmed, the people of KC had been bamboozled. I will never attended another Soul Food Festival, I will from now on listen outside the gates of hell, for free.

Re: “Jessica D. Jones, Killa City homicide 27: Police ID woman fatally shot for allegedly attempting to run over officers

Wow. Lots of trash on this thread of comments. A lot of you need to go to your local community college for a basic class in the English language. I don't know the girl that passed away, nor will I judge her for what she may, or may not have done. But may she rest in peace.

Re: “White Horse Pub proves that there's nothing bland about British cuisine

Gareth, you're mistaken sir. The imperial pint (568 mls) is used in the United Kingdom and Ireland and to some extent in other Commonwealth nations. In the United States, two pints are used: a liquid pint (473 mls) and a less-common dry pint (551 mls). Each of these pints is one-eighth of its respective gallon but the gallons differ and the imperial pint is about 20% larger than the US liquid pint. This difference dates back to 1824, when the British Weights and Measures Act standardised various liquid measures throughout the British Empire, while the United States continued to use the earlier English measures. The imperial pint consists of 20 imperial fluid ounces and the US liquid pint is 16 US fluid ounces, making the imperial fluid ounce about 4% smaller than the US fluid ounce. Hope this helps.

Re: “Kinfolks Soul Food Festival has swindled several cities this year. Is Kansas City next?

I have attended 5 of the 7 SoulFood Fest and now feel that these people Kinfolk have scammed the food vendors so many choose not to be burned by them twice. Every year there is blatant lack of organization as if it was thrown together a few hours earlier. That crap Byrd put on yesterday was the final straw for me. For those who feel its a slap to the African American community, then you spend your money there, I'd rather throw it ( my money) in the street. That was so ugly on many levels!

Re: “Anita Bryant is alive ... and up to her old tricks

So much for her "family values"...her own marriage failed and she violated her own teachings by living with another guy. To screw that he must be hard up. And she cheated her own employees. Anita belongs in her own hell and soon

Re: “Cop Donald Hubbard said he had no choice when he shot and killed firefighter Anthony Bruno last fall. That's because he'd already made some bad decisions

Both guys were in the wrong, but the fact that even standard protocol wasn't followed should be addressed. This officer shouldn't be an officer anymore but he also should be sued for this as they were both in the wrong. Unfortunately if the officer had followed standard protocol for off duty work they would both have their lives back to normal.
