For months now, Sharon and our OverACheevers, Inc. board members Noelle Hampton, Rita Diamond and Monique Wells have been working undercover organizing the upcoming, 4th Annual Bebobalooza Music Fest. This year’s event will be held Sunday, September 28th from 4-8pm at Hills Cafe, located at 4700 S. Congress in South Austin. This year’s featured performers are Walt Wilkins and The Mystiqueros, The Warren Hood Band, Kelley Mickwee (of The Trishas), and the recipient of last year’s door/silent auction proceeds, Chase Gassaway.
Each year, a great group of in-the-trenches Austin singer/songwriters who are making a record to be released around the end of the year submit a questionnaire and three mp3s of songs they are working on for their record. A panel of 4 Austin music biz professionals determine who the recipient of the prize money will be based on a strict but very artistic set of criteria.
This year, our sponsors are Shiner Beer, S. Austin Music, Affordable Sound, The Hills Cafe, JW Productions, KOOP Radio, Fly On The Wall Media, In Search Of A Song and Texas Music Water. We have about a dozen entrants so far, and every one is a winner.
Each year our silent auction is a killer featuring gift certificates for botox injections and teeth whitening, gift certificates from S. Austin Music, Strait Music and Musician’s Woodshed, all sorts of wonderful art in many mediums along with a myriad of restaurant gift certificates from the Four Season’s Trio restaurant to the League to Flores and and and…the list goes on as does the beat. Taking over the master of ceremonies duties from me this year will be long time Austin DJ and music aficionado David Arnsberger. I’ll be doing live shows on KOOP and KDRP/Sun Radio to promote the event and want to invite any of you who would help with the PR to please add the following Evite URL to your mailing list and Facebook sites: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/728436
Finally…OverACheevers, Inc. is a non-profit organization that operates on donations. We put our blood, sweat and tears into thses Bebalooza events with me being the ultimate financial backer. I’d like to ask you in the most encouraging way to help us finance this great Austin music community event by going to overacheevers.org and clicking on the “Be Bob Alooza 2014” button to donate AND the Brown Paper Tickets logo to buy tickets to the event.
Our motto is “Good Folks Doing Good Things For The Right Reasons”. It really takes a village. We’ve done all we can to make this event as good or better than the last 3. Now we really need your help to blow the roof off.
Thanks ya’ll…ciao bob
