CHARLESTON -

To help mark 10 years of FestivALL, the Charleston's celebration of music, dance, theater, visual art, family fun, food and more, organizers are offering a special package that gives access to four big music events for just $100.

Best-of-ALL includes one ticket to each of the four following events:

* The inaugural FestivALT concert June 21 at Appalachian Power Park featuring Georgia's Drive-By Truckers and the Carolina Chocolate Drops.

* The annual Mayor's Concert June 26 at the Clay Center featuring legendary New Orleans R&B singer Aaron Neville, who last visited FestivALL with his brothers.

* The annual Blues, Brews & BBQ on the grounds of the University of Charleston presented by Fund for the Arts June 27 and featuring harmonica player and vocalist Rick Estrin & The Nightcats, the blues and rockabilly sounds of The Nighthawks and the sultry sounds of singer-guitarist Samantha Fish.

* The annual Wine & All That Jazz night on the grounds of the University of Charleston presented by Fund for the Arts June 28 and featuring the Indian and jazz fusion of Red Baraat and the funk and brass of New Orleans' own The Dirty Dozen Brass Band.

The special package is available only in person at the Clay Center box office.

"The Best-of-ALL package is our way of thanking participants for their support over the last 10 years and our way of encouraging participants to experience the broad range of music available during the festival," Director Larry Groce said.
