“We’ve heard from many folks how much it’s going to hurt not being at DelFest this Memorial Day weekend, so we hope this helps a little., Ronnie said. “We’re grateful to have a dedicated crew that has captured some great moments of DelFest through the years, and are looking forward to reliving some of these great moments with you ourselves.”
“We are so excited about this,” Rob added. “It’s just a small way we can all feel connected this weekend. Keep an eye on your notifications—we are going to pop onto Facebook Live from time to time between sets to say ‘hello.’”
