Sayler Park Sustains Festival is a community-driven labor of love, organized by a of couple residents in the community and supported by Sayler Park Village Council, local businesses, and the efforts of our volunteers. In an effort to foster neighborhood engagement, educate residents in sustainable and Earth-first practices, entertain with free music and activities for kids, and offer a dynamic experience with food trucks, local beer, vendors, and raffles, those who make Sayler Park Sustains happen work hard most of the year to offer something special for the area, and all of this happens in beautiful Nelson Sayler Memorial Park one day a year. Any monies raised go back into the community in order to fund green initiatives. Last year, Sayler Park Elementary began a school garden, and community garden, Paper Street Farm, was able to expand.

Bio: "As country as Country once was...served straight up. These songs are meant to be heard amidst both neon bar room glow and a barren moonlit road." - Bucket Full of Nails

“With the opening bass line of "Good Timin' Girl," Bulletville brings you immediately back to the heyday of WSM and The Grand Ole Opry, when country was king and the radio was the most important gizmo in the house. From the first listen the song that most grabbed my attention was "Jesus Wept." If you put the lyrical poetry of country legends like George Jones and Johnny Cash together in a collection, the words to "Jesus Wept" would fit in quite comfortably and not feel the slightest bit out-of-place. "Jesus came and Jesus tried / Jesus wept and Jesus died / And I ain't feeling that good myself today. I'm broke as hell, all my bills are due / My girlfriend's mad and my wife is too / And everyone's lined up for judging me." The music is as bone-deep country as you can get without calling yourself Willie or Waylon, and the lyrics are brash, abrasive and rife with old-school heart-on-your-sleeve pathos.”
