    I hate these kinds of things, maybe its just me. Walton has always had tons of talent, some will remeber the Doke brothers band, Leather and Lace, Southern Nights and many more, today there are bands like MC Bluez and others, Musicians and artists who payed their dues in the bars, nightclubs, festivals for very little pay. A lot of them are still around, doing it not for the money or fame, but because they love it, its in their blood and very soul.

    Now days with all these american idol, america's got talent shows, its all about the fame, I makes me sick when I see a 16 yr old on there talking about they paid their dues and its time for them to be a star.... what dues can you have paid at 16? lol.

    If the folks at JEM want to find the real talent, dont hold a contest, get off their butts and go to the clubs, and festivals and find the real musicians who have the mileage, and play because its part of them and not for the dollar signs. The players who can pick up a guitar, bass or Mic and stand on a stage with anyone with no rehersal and hold their own... people like Mike Doke, Bill Mitchell, Jim Cook, Todd Williams, Keith Jones, and many many more.
