Webb Fest IV will be held in Bowling Green, Kentucky this year on Saturday October 3rd at the Capitol Arts Theater. This year we are partnering with Karen Hume, Director of the Capitol Arts Alliance, Bryan Locke of WDNS Radio in Bowling Green and the usual suspects: Hunter Goatley, Dolly & Jim Chandler, Dori & Mike McCalvin, Eric McCracken, and the Man himself, Webb Wilder along with agent extraordinaire-Nancy Lewis-Pegel. It has been a team effort by all the above to get this set up.
The Capitol Arts Theater is a beautiful venue with 800 seats. The floor slants up toward the back so that all 600 floor seats are good seats and there is a balcony that holds 200 more seats. They are giving us 250 seats in the front and center of the theater and the Capitol Arts Alliance will sell the remaining 550 seats.
We are going to do tickets a little differently this year. Traditionally about 30% of the tickets we send out are not used. To remedy that, we will be charging our folks a mere $5.00 for each ticket this year. This is not done as a profit-making scheme but rather to ensure that the tickets get used. The show is still free for us Webb Board folks because the tickets we send out will have a little stamp of our own which will entitle the bearer to redeem them at the SWAG table for a full $5.00 worth of SWAG (Tee-Shirts, CDs, DVDs etc.).
We will be able to get in early, before the general public, so that we can do our door prizes, mingle and socialize with each other a little, and occupy our choice seats before everyone else arrives.
What all this means is that we need to have you folks reserve your tickets early this year so that we have all 250 of them reserved as soon as possible. Then the Capitol Arts folks can start selling their tickets & people will not come to this site to get free tickets rather than purchase them in Bowling Green. We will announce on the Webb Board when our tickets will be available to reserve and Mr. Mike Omatic will, no doubt, provide us with another email address to use to order the tickets. In order to get tickets through us, you have to have been a Webb-Board Member prior to the date the tickets are advertised here, or a person who has ordered tickets for Webb Fest I, II, or III.
We plan on raffling off an autographed Bass Guitar this year, which Mr. Tom Comet may agree to play on for a song or two. As usual there will be door prizes, a video and whatever other Tomfoolery we can think of between now and then.
Dori and Mike McCalvin are already in the process of securing a couple hotels willing to make us a good deal on rooms for the night of the show.
Stay tuned for more details.
