Fire Aid with Thomas Michael Riley!

I'm back on-line and back to business - finally! Wanted to make sure everything was running smoothly before I jumped in.

Just getting this in. If you guys are looking for something to do this weekend, I can't think of anything better.


Saturday, September 10

Fredericksburg KOA

4:00pm - 11:00pm

Fredericksburg KOA, the town of Fredericksburg and the whole Hill Country are teaming up for a benefit concert this weekend. Saturday night, I'm joining Texas native & Grammy award winner Rick Trevino live at the Fredericksburg KOA to benefit Texas Wildfire Relief.

Press release

"FireAid" has now grown to include many state & local artists who have generously donated their performances to such a worthy and timely cause.

The concert starts at 4pm with a pickers circle including Jake Martin, Bill Lewis, Cowboy Doug Davis, Shannie, Hayden Whittington, and Art & Lisa...with more artists likely to sit in...

At 6pm it's Sol Patch, leading the way to Hill Country Legendary Artist Thomas Michael Riley at 7:30pm.

Rick Trevino will be headlining at 9pm, performing old favorites like "She Can't Say I Didn't Cry", "Doctor Time" and "Running Out of Reasons to Run" and new hits such as "Better in Texas", "Whole Town Blue", "Separate Ways" and "Remember the Alimony".

During Saturday's concert, a live auction of items donated by local merchants will be held with proceeds going to Texas Wildfire Relief. Donations of bottled water, sports drinks, gloves for firefighters and, of course, cash will be accepted immediately and throughout the event at the Fredericksburg KOA located at 5681 US Highway 290 East in Fredericksburg. Non-perishable food items, snacks for the firefighters' pockets and pet foods are just to name a few...

Tickets to Saturday's "Fire Aid" concert are $15 per person and can be purchased at Absolute Charm, 709 W. Main St., The Race Barn, 35 Fair Drive, Tejas Smoke Depot, 1639 US Highway 290 West and of course at the gate at Fredericksburg KOA, 5681 US Highway 290 East.
