Backwoods Bash - An Introduction
Grassroots Concert Encourages Folks to BE GOOD
First Ever Backwoods Bash Near Tulsa, Oklahoma
Austin, TX - Good music. Good People. Good times. These concepts lay the foundation for the theme, Be Good, at the first ever Backwoods Bash (May 23 - 26) at Thundermoon Ranch and Paintball on Mannford Lake in Oklahoma. This is a completely grassroots event for the people and by the people.
In conjunction with the TC Lane "Make a Difference" Foundation and Vertical Life Youth Initiatives, concert promoters from Austin and Tulsa are contributing to help identify sponsors and raise money for these charities. Thus far, the concert is 100% sponsored at every level from bathrooms to sound.
The bands are donating their time, energy and gas money to travel from Austin, Dallas, and several Oklahoma cities to Mannford Lake for this event. The bands have also granted a limited license and donated songs to be sold online through stores like iTunes and other popular music channels for mp3's and ringtones. Thundermoon Ranch and Paintball has donated the venue and use of land for this landmark event.
Additionally, graphic support and creative direction has been sponsored by Creative Concepts Design Studio, while the website (http://www.backwoodsbash.com) is powered and sponsored by Musiclovr.com.
Camping is encouraged at this event all weekend for $15 per vehicle or $5 a day per vehicle for parking. Parking is the only cost for attendees. There will be food vendors, but people are invited to bring their own cooler and camping supplies (no glass bottles please). This is true camping, no electricity on-site. Also, no RV's or loud motorbikes are allowed. To reserve a campsite, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is a small window of opportunity left for vendors. This year there will be vendors selling food, event t-shirts, music CD's from the bands, a face painter for children, a production team shooting video for a post-event DVD, and original music throughout the weekend with a small revival on Sunday morning. Sponsors include: Auto Optical, Outlaw Entertainment Group, INsite Magazine, Bluehouse Media, Creative Concept Design Studio, and Musiclovr.com.
