CONROE, TX -- The Red Brick Tavern is hosting a Music Festival to give back to the community. 11-11 Music Fest is a 2-day music festival beginning November 11 at 2:30pm until 11:30pm and Saturday, November 12 noon until midnight at Western Shadows, 5607 Sapp Road in Conroe.
“We decided it would be fun to host a music festival to give back to the community,” said Debbie Glenn. Debbie is the owner of The Red Brick Tavern, Glenn Insurance Agency, and performs in her band, Southern Disposition. The concept of a music festival simmered but came bubbling to the top over the last few months after she was able to confirm headliners Texas based Randy Rogers Band and Stoney LaRue, Drake White, and country music singer/songwriter Sunny Sweeney. “Then it got exciting!”
In addition to the headliners the music lineup is packed with heavy hitters performing throughout Texas including the Toney Ramey Band, Sheila Marshall, Amber Digby, the Buck Yeager Band, Tyler McCollum, Scotty Alexander, and Southern Disposition.
Giving back is the core of the festival and local organizations benefitting from the festival are Boots for Troops, Love Heals Youth, Raising a Hand for Rett, Country Music Association of Texas, and ProStart Texas Restaurant Association.
