What should the city be sure to include in this year’s Newcastle Days festival scheduled for Sept. 11?

The city should try to make Newcastle Days a revenue-generating event for the taxpayers. It would attract many more people to have a well-marketed craft/art festival, like Salmon Days in Issaquah or the Marymoor Park Art Fair in Redmond. It should also include more live music acts and a variety of food vendors.

Many years ago, the Aphrodisiacs played in the evening. Since they are a well-known cover band, not only our community attended, but many of their loyal fans and followers. It’d be great to get a good band that would attract people from all around to our celebration and our great city!

Showcase/celebrate local business, talents and accomplishments.

Bouncy houses!

I would like to see local groups and businesses bring displays that would interest people, celebrate what’s good in Newcastle, provide helpful information and propose and describe solutions to local problems.

Activities for teens should be included. There are always activities for younger children, but the teens are left out. They would enjoy a teen-sized version of the bounce houses, or sumo wrestling suits or other things of that nature.

What kind of music should be featured at this year’s Concerts in the Park series?

I’d like to hear ’80’s rock at this year’s concert series.

I am a big aficionado of the blues. Alice Stuart is a great local artist. Her information can be found at www.alicestuart.com.

R&B, old school, classic rock, pop and top 40, funk, alternative. Just anything but country, please!

Anything but Justin Bieber!

Young talent. A local youth band?

— Angelica Buri, Newcastle

I like light classical, show tunes (unless particularly dissonant), U.S. and international folk music; instrumental and vocal (with G-rated lyrics); anything with an identifiable melody, rhythm and pleasant harmony.

Jazz would be nice.
