Everybody could use some extra "good karma" and there will be lots of it available on Saturday August 7, when Utah's "Good Karma Fest" starts at 6 p.m. The event is at the Krishna Temple one mile south of Spanish Fork (8628 Main St.)

Three performing bands on the outdoor stage will be Two and a Half White Guys, After Hours, and the Marlena Lambert group. Members of the first group, a reggae/ska band, are Nathan Robinson (vocals and rhythm guitar), Dan Nelson (tenor sax), Curt Gordon (lead guitar), Daden Whittaker (trumpet), Andrews Evans (bass guitar) and Chan Harman (guitar). These musicians like to have fun, and lay down good dance beats.

The After Hours group, an eight-piece "funky jazz" and blues band, includes Carrie Scott singing lead vocals. Ms. Lambert has traveled to and extensively studied in India, is a popular yoga teacher in Salt Lake City and, along with her accompanists, has produced CDs.

The Vedic Ensemble for Dramatic Arts will present the thought-provoking, acclaimed play, "Butcher's Nightmare". Cast members are Randolph McKee, Debbie Frazier, Joe Perry, Virginia and Ganga Shibonis, and Justin Hardwick.

There will be film showings, exhibits, books and booths. Tasty vegetarian meals, snacks, and drinks will be available for nominal prices. Entrance is $3 for adults or $1 for children.
