Outskirts in Witchita Falls TX is the place to be on Sunday October 4, 2012. Through the incredible generosity of great sponsors and talented music artists, this has all the makings of a not-to-miss event. Here's what Chris Weathers (Red Cactus Music Co) has to share (from their FB page):
Come out and join us for the first of many Texas Music Cares benefits. We wanted to start the first year as just a simple song swap style benefit but here we are going all out for the fans.
This year will host some of the best local and non-local up and coming talent Texas has to offer. 3-4 FULL BANDS as well as an acoustic song swap to start the day off. We will also be having a live auction and raffle items throughout the day.
There will be a $10 cover at the door to aid in raising as much money as we can for this great organization. it's gonna be an event your not gonna want to miss, that's for sure! To learn more about the organization, go to TexasMusicCares
The outpouring of love and support for the benefit has been beyond anything Chris and his team could have imagined. News of the event spread faster than a grass fire and has been burning up his email with donations and support from the beginning. Chris mentioned a live auction. Auctions are always a great place to pick up items on your wish list for a 'song'. One of the items up for grabs is a Live Recording Session compliments of Clinton Bennett and Texas Music Spotlight. Other items include goody packs from artists or tickets/ back stage passes for a concert.
The acts are top notch. Some names like our buddy Matt Dunn as well as Scotty Thurman and the Perfect Trouble Band and Randy Rogers are familiar while others such as Bailey McLaa's name might not be but this talented young lady has to be heard!
Aside from supporting the Texas music community through benefits like this one, a local non-profit organization is also chosen to reap a portion of the rewards.
This event is only THREE WEEKS away and there are a couple of things you can do to help. 1) contact Chris on FB to find out what types of donations he can still use or 2) See if there's a spot for you to play. It's going to be an AWESOME event for an even GREATER purpose. Everyone can help in some way to see this is the first of MANY!
Get your Party On for a great cause!
