Saturday offers the chance to see a number of local bands and do a good deed at the same time.

The Music Meltdown Festival, at the American Legion Post, 302 E.S. 11th St., is the first of what organizers hope will become an annual fundraiser for the local Big Brothers Big Sisters.

The Zach Harmon Band, Callahan Divide, OdduSee and the Ranch Hand Band will be on hand to provide music all evening. Inflatables and a dunking booth will be available for part of the event.

Michelle Parrish, director of events and corporate development for BBBS, said longtime BBBS supporter Ronnie Whalen approached her with the idea of doing a fundraiser featuring local bands.

Whalen works at Eagle Aviation with a number of musicians and asked if they'd be willing to help out.

David Reynolds, drummer for the Zach Harmon Band, said he and the other musicians were all for it.

"We wanted to book local talent," Reynolds said.

He said Whalen is known for his support of the nonprofit and is the kind of guy you want help out. Reynolds said BBBS is close to his heart, too. His grandson had a Big Brother when he was younger, and Reynolds said it was a great relationship.

"He still keeps in touch with his Big Brother," Reynolds said of his grandson, now 14.

Parrish said three of the bands donated their time and the other greatly discounted its fee. She said she hopes the event will raise $5,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters, which served 800 children last year.

"We have 180 kids on the waiting list," Parrish said. "The beginning of the school year is a very busy time of year."

Forrest Fest 2011
Call for Artists 2011

Happy thanksgiving everybody. It's gonna be a beautiful end of the year for everyone. From Hannakah, to Christmas, to Yule, and beyond, this is the season of new birth, new beginnings and a closeness with the blessedness of the Lord of the Dance. We give thanks for the birth of the Christ Child, for the Madonna who sacrificed for that offering, and for the God who gave us the free will to choose our personal celebration.

Forrest Fest 2011 will be held the third weekend in April, Friday the 15th through Saturday the 16th, Sunday morning breakfast TBA.

We invite you this year to submit your request to be included as a featured artists on the 2011 program. We enjoy the company of poets, musicians, and artists, from academe, to the streets, from spoken word, to standup, from from the bardic tradition to cowboys and comics; it's not what you do, but how you do it that counts. We want to hear from you. This is the first year we have invited your submission as a part of the selection process of Forrest Fest and hope that this will facilitate the inclusion of anyone who has previously been overlooked. Let us know what you do, give us a sample, and we'll toss your request in the ring.

Have fun Thursday, eat great big and before you crash out on that protein, write a new poem for us. Connie Lane Williams

As the cans stacked up, the number kept climbing.

"Hopefully what I've brought and donated will help them [the Food Bank of West Central Texas] helps," said Angelita Rodriguez.

This drive would not be as big if not for the many people that make it happen.

"It's invaluable. You can't put a number on it," pointed out Jody Houston, the Director of the Food Bank of West Central Texas.

Even those who felt called to donate realize what the drive can do for others.

"It's a blessing for me to give to others," said Rodriguez.

"I love doing charity, and I think it's a great way to help out," added Kimberly Caldwell.

While some donors wished they could've done more to help, others, it could be argued, gave too much.

Radio D.J. Frank Pain found himself making a wager to "strip" down to his Santa boxers and a Santa hat, if someone donated a single gift...

Abilene Country music artist Zach Harmon will be giving away copies of his CD, "Road to Nowhere" for a $15 donation to the Food Bank of West Central Texas at KRBC's Share Your Christmas.

Harmon will be on-site at the KRBC studios for the drive through the evening. Harmon says he'll happily autograph CDs and take pictures with any fans who stop by.

Harmon also plans to play a few songs throughout the afternoon for people those who make a donation.

Share Your Christmas runs through 7 p.m. this evening at KRBC's studio at 4510 South 14th Street in Abilene.

Zach Harmon may not have released his first album, “Road To Nowhere,” last December if it were not for the King of Rock ’n’ Roll.

“The reason why I started playing (at age 12) is I idolized Elvis as a kid. I just thought Elvis was the coolest thing ever. And then I guess at one point I said, ‘I want to be like Elvis,’” Harmon recalled in a recent telephone interview.

Then came the Eagles.

“I think everybody at least at one point wanted to be in a band,” he said.

And now Harmon has made his dream a reality as he and fellow Abilenian Aaron Watson perform Saturday night at the Lucky Mule Saloon as a part of the venue’s Hometown Hero show.

“I think it is going to be a really great show. I am pretty sure it’s going to be packed,” Harmon said. “I like playing in front of a lot...

KTAB News will take its 5pm, 6pm, and 10pm newscasts "On the Road" during the week of July 19-23. Bob Bartlett, Lane Stone, Sam Nichols, and David Robinett will be traveling to Albany, Eastland, Sweetwater, Brownwood, and Anson for a week of live broadcasts. During the shows, the KTAB News team will highlight unique aspects of each community. You'll also have the opportunity to meet and greet your favorite KTAB personalities in between shows.

"I can't wait to travel all around the Big Country and meet everyone," said KTAB's newest anchor, Lane Stone. "Everyone has been so nice since I arrived. This is a great opportunity to personally say thanks for such a warm welcome."

Here's the lineup of dates and towns for the tour:

As a huge music fan, one of the things I think is the most fun is being able to see an act early in their career before they really hit it big. I remember the episode of American Idol when Carrie Underwood first auditioned as just another sweet country girl who liked to sing. Now she is a multi-platinum, award winning country artist. I have recently had the same feelings of growing success with Abilene country singer Zach Harmon.
Harmon has been playing his guitar and singing songs around Abilene since he was 14. At first it was just playing classic rock and oldies but in the past couple years he has embraced the rising Texas Country genre. I first saw him perform as one of the opening acts for Cross Canadian Ragweed at the Taylor County Expo Center. I did not know who he was at the time,...

Early adulthood is often regarded as a time for exploration and experimentation.  Through the process of learning about themselves, perhaps more importantly, people also discover who they are not.  Only in his early twenties, Zach Harmon is still developing a musical identity, which comes through on his debut album Road to Nowhere.  Nonetheless, there’s something quite charming about witnessing that growth process.  In a world that unfortunately has far too many wannabes seeking to fill specific roles, refreshingly,  Harmon is who he says he is.

Who is he?  At this moment, a kind of musical jack-of-all trades.  Harmon mixes his country with a healthy dose of pop, rock, and a splash of blues.   Listeners won’t find him name-checking Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings or Johnny Cash (even though he counts Nelson among his influences) in a bid to establish his...
