Texas Weather Hits Hard

We’ve all heard the saying “If you don’t like the weather in Texas, wait a few minutes and it’ll change,” but recently that has not held true. Most of Texas is wet and it still seems to be raining everyday. During a storm the last week of May lightning struck Bill Carpenter’s house where the band Chris Gougler’s band practices. Not only did Bill lose everything but since the whole place burned down and the band lost everything also. Countless guitars and amps, all the recording equipment and PA and sound equipment as well as tons of other music things were lost. You can help! An account has been set up for donations.
