Battle of the Bands
Wednesday, April 8, 2009 • Posted April 8, 2009

The 2nd Annual Mason Country Music Festival is scheduled for Saturday, May 23rd during Memorial Day Weekend. Country music singer, Mack Abernathy, along with wife, Jessie have been working hard for months to bring the Music-Fest to Mason once again. Mack and his band will be a part of the night’s entertainment.

An addition to the event this year is a “Battle of the Bands”. All bands interested in winning the 1st place $500 cash prize are welcome to enter the “Battle”. There will be NO JUDGES for the contest. Each person buying a ticket to the event will be given a ballot to vote on their favorite band. THE AUDIENCE WILL BE THE JUDGES FOR THE CONTEST! Any band interested in competing should drop a CD of their music off at the Mason County Chamber of Commerce on the NE side of the Square or mail it to the Chamber of Commerce at P.O. Box 156 , Mason, 76856 no later than April 24th. Bands will be contacted after a Chamber of Commerce committee decides if your music is well-suited for a country music venue.

Again this year we are planning to make beverages available for sale to the public. Any local organization or vendor interested in this opportunity should also contact the Chamber of Commerce by calling 325-347-5758. A variety of cold non-alcoholic drinks must be made available to concert guests the entire evening of the event. All proceeds will be kept by the group or vendor. You may also bring your own beverage but NO GLASS CONTAINERS will be allowed. If you have an interest in sponsoring the Music-Fest this year, please contact the Chamber of Commerce as well. Sponsorship packages will be similar to last year.

Mark your calendars now for the 2nd Annual Mason Country Music-Fest on Saturday night, May 23rd at Mason’s City Park outdoor dance slab. Bring your friends and join us for some “boot-scootin” country fun!
