FOR THE SENDER – an epic, all-inclusive evening of food, drinks, and music
September 7 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm| $89
One of our favorite events of the year returns to Genoa, NV with an all-inclusive autumn spread from chef David Lofgren, creative alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and of course, the songs and stories of For The Sender.
We’re welcoming our old friend, incredible songwriter/musician, and enigmatic performer, Cary Pierce into the For The Sender family this year. Half of the legendary Texas duo, Jackopierce, Cary’s musical career has spanned over thirty years and put him on stage with the likes of John Mayer, Dave Matthews Band, Train, Matchbox Twenty, Counting Crows, Wallflowers, Vertical Horizon, Sheryl Crow, Mat Kearney, Jewel, Lyle Lovett, No Doubt, and Collective Soul, – to name a few. Cary was instrumental in the early development of Vertical Horizon, Evan & Jaron, Jack Ingram and Guster. He has also produced and/or co-written records for Chris Tomlin (7x Dove Award, 2x Grammy nominated, certified Platinum & Gold, several no. 1 chart positions), Graham Colton (Universal), Jack Ingram (Universal/Big Machine), Jon Abel and more. On top of all that, the guy is incredibly approachable, kind and generous and is a welcome addition to our FTS family.
We’re also welcoming back Grammy-winner (and one of the finest guitar players in the world) Sean Watkins of Nickel Creek, as well as the founder and creator of For The Sender, author/musician Alex Woodard. We’ll have bassist Patrick “Turtle” McClory and the lovely Molly Jenson filling her roll as resident stage angel, and backing up the ensemble will be event host Ike & Martin.
Those of you at the show last year remember the beautiful and moving moment when we brought an unsuspecting audience member onstage and sang songs to her, based on her story. We were so inspired by the experience (and your response) that we’re doing it again! Send us your story (only if you’re coming to the show… we need to know you’ll be in the audience!), we’ll read all of the letters, share them with each other, and sit on the porch in the days before the concert writing songs about them. On the night of the show, you just might have your story set to music.
Send your story to firstname.lastname@example.org… letters will not be considered if they are received more than 2 weeks before the show, so write ’em if you got ’em.
