Houston Music Festival 2007 Set for Sept. 2

Last year 300 people, including 45 musicians, enjoyed a full day of rock, folk, country and blues music.

Attendance grew by 33 percent last year, and this year we anticipate an even larger crowd. A second stage and a new canopy system have been added.

Out-of-town musicians can use stage equipment provided by local musicians, including a drum set, amplifiers, keyboards, congas, bongos, timbales, microphones and monitors, Guitars may be available by special arrangement.

Musicians interested in participating should contact David Buchanan by e-mail at BuchananEnvironmental@earthlink.net (please use Subject: Houston Music Festival to avoid deletion of your correspondence) or by telephone at (281) 852-2438, no later than July 31.

Musicians must be members or attending one of the Sabbath-keeping Churches of God. Exceptions will be made for nonmember musicians in a backup role. All musicians must conform to Church standards for dress, grooming and conduct.

Festival entry is free; however, donations will be accepted to defray expenses. Any extra funds will be donated to the United Church of God.

Hotel accommodations may be found in Humble, Texas, approximately five minutes from the church building. In the event of rain, performances will be held in the building auditorium.
