May 1st - Music Garden's Az-IzZ was chosen to perform for thousands of guests for the Taste of Derby to open festivities for Kentucky Derby week. The Taste of Derby raised hundreds of thousands of dollars and awareness for hunger relief organizations. The event featured a roster of award winning chefs and horse racing celebrities from destinations on the road to the Kentucky Derby including Miami, FL, Los Angeles, California, New Orleans, Louisiana, New York City, Toronto, Little Rock, Arkansas and of course, Louisville, KY.
What a weekend for Music Garden wedding bands. Through the years, our bands have played wedding receptions for professional athletes, governors, and celebrities all over the south. This Saturday, both Az Izz and Musical Fantasy were both chosen to perform forTexas ranch receptions.
Musical Fantasy had a tough task of impressing a crowd full of musicians as the groom was a manager for some elite groups. As always, the band did not disappoint. They built the night into a huge party ending with members of Mumford and Sons on stage at the end of the night. If the band is good enough to impress Mumford and Sons, they are good enough to perform for you!
Az-Izz performed at Kings Ranch for guests that included among many other well known Texans, Miss Texas and Face The Nation’s Bob Schieffer. Az Izz was chosen to perform the reception by the bride and the groom, whose family runs King’s Ranch.
This year’s Alpha Psi Rodeo will be held on Saturday, April 12. The headlining act is Alan Jackson! Supporting artists will be announced soon.
Alpha Psi Rodeo is an amateur rodeo, presented by the only male fraternity associated with the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine. The rodeo is the largest single fundraising event conducted by students in Auburn.
Dating back to 1965, the event has taken place in the spring of each year for the last 49 years. Rodeo contestants consist of Auburn students as well as individuals not affiliated with Auburn University. Team contestants consist primarily of small groups formed within fraternities and sororities. Come watch these brave souls give their best efforts at bull riding, bronc riding, calf-roping, calf-wrestling, and tug of war.
Following the rodeo, there will be a band for your entertainment. The crowd has grown bigger each year, and includes local citizens, students, faculty, and alumni. In addition, Alpha Psi Rodeo has gained attendees from multiple universities across the southeast including: UGA, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Kentucky, Texas A&M, Florida State, Clemson, Ole Miss, and Alabama.
Each individual ticket contributes to the cause of the event; the contributions are primarily donated to local charities and organizations, as well as providing quality entertainment for the event. On behalf of Alpha Psi Fraternity, we thank everyone who attended the 49th Annual Alpha Psi Rodeo, and became a part of one of the greatest events at Auburn. We hope it was rewarding for each attendee and can continue as one of Auburn’s greatest parties during the nicest time of year
