SNWMF 2013 Regrets to inform you that.....
June 19, 2013 01:09AM
SNWMF 2013 regrets to inform you that, due to visa problems, Max Romeo will be unable to make his California debut at this year's festival. The festival undertook to obtain a working permit for Romeo, and all materials were submitted more than 7 weeks ago. The USCIS has yet to adjudicate his visa application even though that process is usually completed in 3 weeks or less.

Don Carlos has been added to this year's lineup and will be performing at 6:50 p.m. on Saturday in Max Romeo's place.

Damn, 2 of my top 5 are out......maybe SNWMF 2014?!!
But again, great last minute replacement. The Don is one of my favorites to see live.

That's some bait and switch BS right there!Very familiar with another cali fest ! Really? I'm sooooo disappointed right now. The one artist I've always wanted to see live pulls out 4 days before he's scheduled? That's some real B.S right there. Sick to my stomach.

I know it sucks and it's hard when one of your top anticipate is replaced. I have felt the same way several times over the last 8 years. But we must move on, so in doing so I have to ask. What band or bands will be backing the messenger and the don?
Re: SNWMF 2013 Regrets to inform you that.....
June 19, 2013 03:15AM
no it would be bait and switch like another festival if they advertised these artists without ever having a signed contract....
this is just us immigration department totally sucking.

Probably everyone was looking forward to putting on our iron shirts and chasing the devil out of earth but look on the bright side now we can pass the lazer beam and chase away the wicked and mean! Big up the festival organizers for doing everything they could to get Max Romeo to the fest and when babylon obstacles came about (as they are prone to do) recovering very nicely indeed with a legendary must see artist Mr.Don Carlos!!!

Really really disappointed. I was really looking forward to see Max Romeo. Don Carlos never disappoints though. Lets hope this is the last one.

Max Romeo's "Holding Out My Love to You" l/p release from 1981 is one of my farovites.
Jimmy Riley did a killer set last time M.R. could not make it a few years ago.

Max Romeo will be missed, but Jimmy Riley & Don Carlos I would go see anytime.

Wow, that is disapointing. Max Romeo was an artist I have wanted to see for years. I must say if they could replace Max with any artist I would want it to be Don Carlos! Well done SNWMF. Thank you for making the most of the situation.

I always love seeing the Don live but man I'm disappointed. Oh well, at least we have a couple solid replacements. Saturday will still be a great day full of music and come 7:00 I'll be jamming to:

Bring it on Ervin Spencer, from 1952 until this time! Unlike you spoiled Cali folk, we Texans don't get to see any ex Uhurus here with any regularity.

Be careful, try to look before you leap;
Took a little walk from my Vineyard...
Now I'm all alone..

Darn it, was so looking forward to finally seeing Max Romeo live, but I'm happy that I get to see Don Carlos again, especially since I wasn't able to see him in Portland recently.

I'm hoping that SNWMF will try to bring Max again next year...

Sigh of relief! This will be my second time missing this fest since 99. The first, was when my son was born. Now, I'm taking that same son to NASCAR weekend in Sonoma. I had to compromise because he is an inspiring Rootically Youth racer at 7 years old, and will be the first humble Afican to win the Sprint Cup in about 13 years haha. I don't feel so bad now that Max and U-Roy are out. If Don, Duckie, Michael, Junior were performing backed by Fullwood and the Rhythm Twins (sly/robbie), I'd be upset. I'm glad we made it to The Hills in Angels Camp though for my birthday weekend. That brought back pleasant memories despite the crackhead incident.

Have fun and enjoy my World Music Fest Family.....enjoy.....and peace be with you.
