    From Organizer, Travis Cyr: was born in September of 2006. Originally named "Gardenstock", I was designed to help people. Two-fold...I aim to promote and expose some very talented musicians from throughout the great state of Maine and I hope to help raise money and awareness for local charities and people less fortunate. We have raised money and donations for local food pantry's and shelters, the make-a-wish foundation and for the preservation and restoration of beautiful Thomas Park in New Sweden, a place I like to call home. Lastly I hope to generate excitement and entertainment for those looking for some. Please join us for what promises to be a great, fun filled day with a fantastic soundtrack...all for a GREAT cause
