Summer is Here! Hey, everyone! It’s been a killer spring and things just keep getting better - back to work and it feels so good! This has been a really exciting April, we’ve had loads of FUN, tons of great clients and made some new friends as well! The first half of the month, we were focused on corporate events: we had great fun at Banger’s Sausage House and Beer Garden in the always crazy Rainey Street District in downtown Austin. Thanks very much to Sam and Lana at Banger’s who made us feel right at home and really kept things running smoothly for over 800 in attendance. The food was excellent and we'd Love to go back! Thanks go out to Desiree at McVeigh, Shawn at AVD USA, as well as, Ham and Fabio and the entire staff at the Belmont for the 6 Sense project launch event on the 20th. It’s always a pleasure for the band to play at home and the Belmont on West 6th street is a classy, professional party venue right in the heart of Downtown Austin. April 21 we were at Sonesta out near Lake Travis for a 50th birthday bash for their fearless leader with the Austin Planet Fitness crew. Thanks to Tracy Cordova with PF for coordinating that awesome poolside party! Our very first event at the new Zaza Austin was a smash hit as well for the wedding reception of Reagan Smith and Mitch Rentschler - extremely cool ballroom and bar - if you haven’t been to the new Zaza you owe it to yourself to check it out ASAP! Monica Rheingold at Bird Dog Wedding did an AMAZING job and the evening was especially spectacular! Thanks to our dear friend Jo Ann Woodward and husband John for having us over to the Hughes Manor in Houston April 29th for the 40th birthday of our friend Travis Oden - we played his wedding almost 12 years ago, did their Camden company parties and were honored to be asked back for his big blowout! Fabulous food from Churrasco’s Houston made the event even more over-the top! We closed out the month at the absolutely STUNNING Camp Waldemar outside Kerrville for the nuptials and post-ceremony reception of the new couple, Mr. and Mrs. Matt and Camie Carlock McKee. Camie’s mom, Trixie Carlock, couldn’t have been more helpful and hands-on with the wedding planning and we certainly appreciate her for that, as well as, Tricia Hamil with Viridian Design Studio - thanks y’all, you put on a great event!! It was a great night all the way through the very last dance: Queen’s “You’re My Best Friend”. What a Fun song! May is also busy with loads of weddings, as well as the the Rockport Wine Festival VIP party on the 26th - can’t wait to return for that one! We also have a rare Public appearance coming up June 11 in Austin at Vincent’s on the Lake on Hudson Bend on Lake Travis, so please make your plans now! It’s gonna be a good one! Hope to see everyone soon! The Pictures Band Austin, Texas
