DELAWARE STATE FAIR NEWS (WBOC TV NEWS)

'Vocal Trash' Not Returning to Delaware State Fair
Reported by Cassandra Kramer 02/04/2009
HARRINGTON, Del. - The familiar sounds of the trash-can playing band, Vocal Trash, will not be heard at the Delaware State Fair this year. The unique group is not coming back. This has local fans furious.
Many locals have grown accustomed to hearing the group at the fair. Performing in the Free Entertainment tent for the past seven years, Vocal Trash have won a lot of fans.
"We feel that vocal trash is the fair," said Nancy Betts, a loyal fan. But this year, the unique group isn't coming.
"When I heard about it, I couldn't believe it because I was looking forward to seeing them in the middle of the year," said Elden Tunnell, another fan.
The Delaware State Fair says it was a difficult decision, but for economic reasons, Vocal Trash won't be performing. And local fans are devastated.
Even though their concerts were free, other fans say they would pay to see them play at the grandstand.
"If they had them live on stage, I'd pay to go see them because they're worth that," said Tunnell.
The Delaware State Fair says it did consider that, but it did not want to charge for a peformance that used to be free. Instead, the Free Entertainment tent will feature other performances, like a hypnotist and a youth talent showcase. But for fans like Betts, it won't be the same.
"We just need the fair people to know that in our hearts, we need Vocal Trash here in Delaware," said Betts.
She says she hopes, after this year, the Fair will change its mind and bring them back.
The Delaware State Fair is July 23rd through Aug. 1 this year, it also will celebrate it's 90th anniversary.
