Ain’t no party like a Patslegacy.com party!  That was exactly the vibe felt by thousands of music lovers and cannabis supporters at the first Blaze N Glory Festival held in San Bernardino on Friday, May 15 and Saturday, May 16.

The two day festival covered the musical spectrum from hip hop, reggae and rock. Hip Hop icons, Redman and Method Man vowed to reunite with the Wu-Tang Clan, irie reggae sounds came from Rebelution and the Bermuda sensation, Collie Buddz, while Ballyhoo rocked hard!  Several other outstanding bands entertained on two stages on the grounds of the San Manuel Amphitheater.

Rev. Dennis Morgan Brown met with Former Superintendent of Rialto Unified School District, Dr. Harold L. Cebrun, in December of 2009. That meeting resulted in an agreement that created free music lessons for the students in the Rialto Unified School District from January 2010 until May 2012 at​three School Sites, which include Kucera Middle School, Hughbanks Elementary and Werner Elementary.

After incorporating with State of California in 2003, Rev. Brown’s organization, IM INC. immediately​gained non-profit status and began to receive grants from various entities such as Catholic Charities, Wells Fargo Bank and the Morongo Indian Community.  San Manuel and Wal-Mart are currently funding this Program. Saturday, May 23 will end this session that started January 10 with a concert, certificates, awards of completion and The Jose Ontiveras Merit Award of Achievement to exceptional students. The concert and ceremony take place at 3358 N. “E” Street in San Bernardino. The event begins at 9 a.m. and is open to the public.
