Time to FiestaJAM on Lake Marble Falls BY GLYNIS CRAWFORD SMITH THE H1G/:L.4NDZ;R The big two-day music and wine festival on Lake Marble Falls--FiestaJam-- will be happening Friday and Saturday, Sept. 23-24. Patrons will get a VIP preview Friday night. It will begin at 5 p.m. with a Rebecca Creek Distillery spirits tasting at Bill's Burgers, 31)7 Main Street. From 6-9 p.m. at the Uptown Sound Theater, 218 Main Street, entertain- ment will be provided by local songwriters of inter- national acclaim: Mike Blakely, Alex Harvey, John David Kent and john Arthur martinez (jAm). Those events are part of the $75 VIP package. The main event on from 2-8 p.m. on Saturday, however, comes at a ticket price of just $15 for nmsic only or $35 t'or 10 tastings of wine from seven Hill Country vineyards and beer from two local .craft brewers. Tickets are on sale via or by call- ing 800-514-3849. It all takes place at at Lakeside Park and Pavilion, 307 Buena Vista Drive, overlooking Lake Marble Falls. FiestaJAM's marquee event, Texas Musician of the Year Joe Ely, will be in concert at 6 p.m. Country favorites Drew Womack and john Arthur martinez, backed by Tejas, perfbnn at 5 p.m. The four Battle of the Bands finalists will be on stage from 1-5 p.m., plus wine and craft-beer tast- ings from seven Hill Country wineries/vine- yards and two Texas craft breweries. The event, the brain child of Robert Linder and jAm, is a benefit for Harmony School of Creative Arts and Marble Falls Independent School District arts programs. "John Arthur and I thought of this at the same time," said Linder. "1 am an orchestra conductor and, when I moved here, [ said we have all thee musicians around us. We need a music festival. "Unbeknownst to me. Jotm Arthur had come up with the same idea." With music as the main thread, the two bonded also over being tennis enthusi- asts and educators, but nmre skills came into the mix. "Rick Naber of Flat Creek Estate is on our board with knowledge of wineries, breweries and financials," said Linder. "Tim Stallard sets up events with tennis and music for the number one Brown Brothers tennis team. Barbara Bend, the former head of Harmony School, iatid Jared Fields are on the board." The new key the third annual event in 2016, according to Linder, is the addition of city and county support. "We qualify' for Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT) funds and Marble Falls Parks Director Robert Moss and Jeanie Emerson from Burnet County Tourism are on the board. They have been big players in helping us out." "With all the new down- town developments, espe- cially the possibility of two amphitheaters down by the waterfront, this festival is a natural for Marble Falls." Linder predicts Fiesta JAM will only grow bigger: "Marble Falls has Lak:eFest tbr the racing :fans. We want the city to be a music destination as well."
