Jennifer Kosinchuk also known as 'Neon Gypsy,' returns again this year to share her amazing talents at Waynopalooza (CC Bissett photo)
The Countryman family's 3rd annual Waynopalooza music festival is a tribute to their father Wayne Countryman. It features an all day family and pet friendly event held to raise scholarship money for kids at the Rochester Performing Arts Center. Take a chance on a 50/50 and/or raffle items that have been generously donated from local businesses. Horseshoes, corn hole and beer pong set up for anyone that cares to play, and event T-shirts will be available.
"Music. It transcends all of life. It is the universal language that we all understand. Understood through generations and time, used for centuries to heal and communicate all forms of expression - Kids should have that freedom of expression and the availability to the instruments they desire to explore that only adds harmony to this world. The world needs more freedom to express themselves in music and I Am donating my time as one of those once, kids, expressing myself for the LOVE of music for others to enjoy. " - Neon Gypsy
