“Gibson Showcase Theater boasts best bands at Fan Fair 2005 event”

Hollywood . Nashville . New York – The opening day of Fan Fair 2005 in Nashville was celebrated indoors on June 9th-10th, with 10 of the greatest artist performances in the recent history of the event. The Gibson Showcase Theater www.gibson.com was the only stage on opening day that wasn’t flooded in pouring rains that covered most of the Fan Fair entertainment throughout the four day event. In spite of the flooding from tropical storm Arlene, the Gibson Theater was dry and sold out for the fans who were given their tickets through sponsors who graciously sponsored the stage during the 12 hours of music provided daily for fans.

Joining other Fan Fair performances by Alan Jackson, Rascall Flatts, Jo Dee Messina, Trisha Yearwood, Big & Rich, Gretchen Wilson, Montgomery-Gentry, Keith Urban, Joe Nichols, and Dolly Parton, the Gibson Showcase Theater hosted Carl Brady, Magnify, Heartland, David Robert Montgomery, Ali Shumate, Tim Spears, Tori Sparks, Abby Fletcher and The Apocalyptic Cowboys, Michele Crisp and Honky Tonker Jason Green. Enthusiastic Fan Fair attendees labeled the Gibson stage as the “best indoor stage” at Fan Fair 2005.

Headliners for the night’s activities were Virginia artist Tim Spears, Nashville’s own Tori Sparks and Abby Fletcher and The Apocalyptic Cowboys with late night artists Michele Crisp and Honky Tonker Jason Green.

The Apocalyptic Cowboys were like drinking down three Red Bull energy drinks in one glass. This band is perhaps the most sought after local southern rock band in Nashville and reminds you of the now famous If you are looking for Southern Rock and energy to burn, the 9:00 p.m. southern rock act, Abby Fletcher and Kings Of Leon some four years ago. They are working with veteran hit-maker, Robert Metzgar in developing their unique sound and Abby Fletcher is represented by Shelby Kennedy at BMI as a songwriter. Whoever signs this band is going to sell millions of records. See www.bmi.com

The Apocalyptic Cowboys are made up of songwriter Brian Emmel who plays bass onstage, West Ernest who plays rhythm guitar on acoustic and lead, Brian Speight who plays lead guitar, the very famous Ned Luberecki on the rock banjo, mandolin and dobro, Mark Neimeic on Drums and the model-like Irene Kelly on keyboards who sings all the background vocals. The superstar of this group however, is the incredibly sexy and bigger than life superstar Abby Fletcher. Words fail to describe how truly hot she is onstage. At one point, some in the crowd tried to rush the stage. The Apocalyptic Cowboys band have their current single in rotation at 100,000 watt WKDF radio in Nashville and they are hotter than the tailpipe on Jeff Gordon’s NASCAR race car. This is a band that contends with any band in Nashville’s recent history in the “live” performance arena. If you missed them, you missed the best southern rock set I’ve seen in years.

Ed Benson, the director of the Country Music Association announced on Monday that over 145,000 tickets had been sold and this represents an up tick in sales this year of over 38% in single day tickets sold, and an increase of 16.3% in four day passes. Benson announced Monday that all the gold circle seats have already been sold out for 2006, and that all the four day passes are gone for the 2006 event which starts next year on June 8th, 2006. Fan Fair normally sells out a year in advance. It was nice to see Garth Brooks in attendance at this year’s Fan Fair event. He sat through the performance of Trisha Yearwood and rumors abound that next year, Brooks and Yearwood will make a joint performance at the 2006 Fan Fair. See www.tennessean.com
