The Fest is Here Again!

I just had a lot of fun this morning having my first TV appearance! What a blast! As a part of our promotions of the LDS Independent Music Festival this weekend, we sent out some press releases, and got an appearance on Channel 13’s morning show.

So, I got up early, dressed up, and went downtown to the remote location they were using. It was the small park-like plaza at the north end of the Gateway downtown. Very nice location. EnZign arrived soon afterward and set up and warmed up. We actually got three appearances. At about 7:45, Shauna Thomas interviewed me about the fest (see below) for my fifteen seconds of fame, then they cut to EnZign, who played a song segment.

Then again, in about 20 minutes, they showed the guys playing for about 5 or 10 seconds as they cut to a commercial. And finally, Shauna wrapped up the show plugging the fest again for a few moments and the wrapped up on another song.

So, hopefully, that’ll bring in a few audience members!

So, here’s the shameless plug:

The 6th Annual LDS Independent Music Festival will be held Friday, August 26th through Sunday, August 28th.

Friday, the 26th: at the chapel building on the campus of the Utah Developmental Center 6:30-9:00 PM Music business and songwriting workshops, featuring Jeannine Laskey of the NSAI and FCMA.

Saturday, the 27th: At the American Fork park amphitheater, 850 E 700 N, one block west of the Mt Timpanogos Temple. 2:00-6:00 Afternoon performances by new and exciting independent LDS musicians. 7:00-10:00 Evening Showcase, featuring Eric Herman, Neil Owen, EnZign, Crinna Hill, and Pearl Award winner Sam Payne. Come hear a wide variety of contemporary music by church members.

Sunday, the 28th: at the chapel building on the campus of the Utah Developmental Center Sunday Devotional. A performance of more sacred and inspirational music in a more reverent setting.

The best part? All events are free and open to the public!
