We have attended the Sun Valley Jamboree for the last 11 years and it is without exception our favorite event. The bands are supurb as is the setting with all its venues. They do a great job of integrating the Sun Valley and vicinity comunity into the event. For many young musicans and their bands it is wonderful to see them develop and prosper. It is such a pleasure to be part of large gathering with such polite and caring people. Zane and Betty Smith, Springfield, OR
