MACT Meeting and 5th Annual River Jam

Jen and I attended the Music Association of Central Texas (MACT) meeting tonight and surprisingly enough ran into a handful of folks we already knew. The 1st picture is of Johnnie Bradshaw, the President of the Waco chapter. He was reading off all of the available volunteer positions for the 5th Annual River Jam sponsored by MACT. The fundraiser event for Caritas is Saturday, September 16th from 4pm-11pm at the Bosque River Stage on MCC's Campus. Performers include: John Nitzinger, Sonny Mac Blues Band, Zychek, Sandusky, Touch of Class, The Nick Hildebrand Band with Gordon Collier, Clark Naubert and Jonquil. I'll be in school that day at MCC, so I'll head over there after 5pm. If you'd like to volunteer, contact them via their website.
The next picture is Scott Vaughn. He hosts the songwriter's workshop the Monday after the MACT meetings. I plan on dropping by next Monday night at 7pm to share some of Jen's and my song lyrics.

The third picture is Michael and Rita Jones. Rita was the songwriter of the year last year and her birthday was today. We celebrated with cake! Penney at Beatnix sent us to the meeting to represent Beatnix, because they are members of MACT. Beatnix is one of the major sponsors for River Jam this year, so they were real happy to see us. We saw Terry Roller, Bryan Martin, Marty Floyd, Gordon Collier of The Nick Hildebrand Band, Carolyn Hurst and her husband. It was nice to see familiar faces. We met plenty other singer/songwriters including Glenn Parmelee of Tenderheart Ministries. We invited all out to Open Mic Jamz and to Beatnix Open Mic Poetry. We also sat and chatted for a moment with Mary Duty of Poppa Rollos Pizza where the meeting was held. It was a good night. Posted by Picasa
