MOUNT ENTERPRISE, Tx — Tickets are on sale now for the Fourth Annual Family ReULion Charity Jam April 7-8 at Durango’s Canyon near Mount Enterprise. The event benefits the East Texas Food Bank and features two days of concerts, magic shows, food, and activities for the whole family.
Bands scheduled to play are headliner Uncle Lucius, and Willow James, Zac Wilkerson, Folk Family Revival, Aaron Stephens, Midnight River Choir, James Bailey, David Baxter, Joey Greer and The New Offenders.
Entertainer Johnny Magic puts on two shows on Saturday and other activities include a kids’ area for arts and crafts and face painting, and “backyard games” such as basketball, washers, horseshoes, and bean bag toss that parents can play with their kids.
Durango’s Canyon is 120 acres offering overnight accommodations including RV sites, cabins, and tent camping; activities including fishing, swimming, walking trails; as well as an on-site steakhouse and private club. The venue can hold as many as 10,000 people in the 60-foot-deep, 300-foot-wide-at-the-top amphitheater.
The East Texas Food Bank was chosen for the event’s charity because of its connection to Uncle Lucius lead singer Kevin Galloway. He remembers how his own family struggled when his dad lost his job and wrote about it in his hit song, “Keep the Wolves Away.”
The East Texas Food Bank distributed 21.8 million meals in fiscal 2016, and has since 1988 provided food to more than 200 partner agencies, to feed children, the working poor, and seniors in 26 East Texas counties.
Gates open Friday at 5 p.m. and shows starts at 6:30 p.m. Gates open at 9 a.m. Saturday with shows starting at 10 a.m.
