Wiping Off The Sweat | Post Concert Wrap Up

 

NIXON, TX - Saturday night was another great chapter in the book of Camp House Concerts.  A chapter that definitely lived up to it's name, 'Hotter Than Hell.'

 

The stage was electrified by the bearded band of Manzy Lowry, showing off their unique style of 'electric outlaw country'.  The funky folk duo of Jana Pochop and Emily Shirley, bringing a bit of Austin songwriting to Nixon, TX.  We might have been the first to hear the new revolution of Folk Rap by Pochop!  The Logan Ryan Band set a new venue record by having 5 people on stage.  Wayworn Traveler also put on a magnificent performance not letting the heat alter their style in any way!

 

It's safe to say that we had a very exciting lineup that filled the Camp House air with new and memorable sounds.  The same airspace that was invaded by Judge Coleman and Bill Scarff in their Cessna airplane.  They claim they had prior approval haha!  Check out this awesome photo captured from them.

Brief History | Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic 1973 – 2018

A Brief History of Willie Nelson's 4th of July Picnic
Year by Year | 1973 - 2018

Since 1973 Willie Nelson has graced country music fans with his (sorta) annual 4th of July Picnic.  Since '73, Willie Nelson is to host his 45th annual 4th of July Picnic.  There were a few times when the music festival looked like it would not survive to see its 45th birthday.  For instance, in 1980, at the Perdenales Country Club, Willie Nelson had announced that this was going to be his last festival.  And for the next couple of years, he held his word until the return of the Picnic in 1983-84.

 

The festivals are listed in order by year and each date has a bit of history, picture of memorabilia or concert poster, and information regarding that certain year.

 

Scroll down to get a brief history of Willie's Picnic year by year.

Muzaic Launches Crowdfunding Campaign To Save Local Music Industry

 

Why Muzaic Is So Useful

Live music venues are closing their doors or moving away from live music performers at a record pace. With every venue change from live musicians to DJ's or karaoke, the odds of having great music tomorrow being born today is slowly diminishing. For the venues and concert promoters who organize live entertainment, the challenge isn’t a shortage of ‘rising stars’... It’s the extremely time-consuming and difficult task of bringing together the right talent to create great entertainment experiences night after night. Combine that with the rise of services like Netflix, Amazon, and YouTube, and the competition for consumer spending on entertainment becomes even more fierce.

 

With more live music venues closing their doors and moving away from live performers, MuzaicShows.com has launched a free website to ensure tomorrow’s rising stars.
