Below you can watch some of the fun, thrills and spills during the Skateboarding Competition at The Alex LeVasseur Foundation Festival held at Jim Warren Skate Park in Franklin, TN on June 29, 2008. What a great day and what a great foundation! Local bands played and kids of all ages skated.
Then Doobie Brother Michael McDonald came on stage and played some of his big songs, accompanied by backup singers including Kim Carnes and Sarah Buxton! Then Billy Ray Cyrus came on rocked the house with "Achy Breaky Heart"...and then MILEY CYRUS came on. Wow. It was like helicopters were swooping around...and then Jeffrey, arguably the best male songwriter and performer in all of country music (with a GREAT BAND!), played for about two hours, as he always does. Do not miss this event NEXT YEAR! End of June, mark your calendar!
Oh, and fellow Hit-Men Bob DiPiero and Tony Mullins performed, Shane Minor sang...and more!

The proceeds from this event will go towards the Alex LeVasseur Skate Scholarship program that will send kids to Woodward skate camp in Southern California and to camps at 6th Ave Skate Park here in Nashville.
