8th Annual Harvest Moon Concert
with Mike Pritchard & Mark Wallney
Friday September 8th

Click here to RSVP or for more info7th Annual Harvest Moon House Concert

We have sold out of all guaranteed seats, which is the maximum we can accommodate if we are forced by the weather to have an indoor concert, but we want to hold our 8th Annual Harvest Moon concert outside under the full moon (weather permitting). So, we are taking PROVISIONAL RSVPs for additional seats. We expect good weather, but if the weather forces us inside, the Provisional seats will obviously not be available. So, PRAY FOR GOOD WEATHER! 🙂

Since these seats are Provisional, we will NOT be accepting payment in advance for these Provisional RSVPs. You will PAY AT THE DOOR the night of the concert.

Because this is an outdoor concert, PLEASE BRING LAWN CHAIRS if you have them. We will have some chairs available, but not enough for everyone.

If you have questions about these Provisional RSVPs, please use the Contact form at the right side of this page to submit your question. Be sure to include your phone number so we can contact you with our response.

It’s hard to believe this will be our 8th Annual Harvest Moon Concert! It marks an anniversary of sorts for Claire and Paul, as the first one was about the one-year mark from when we started dating. Who knew that all these years later, we would be married and still celebrating love and life with our friends every Harvest Moon?!

And, of course, it wouldn’t be the same without another outstanding performance by our dear friends Mike Pritchard and Mark Wallney, who got this whole thing started in the first place with their better-than-original performances of Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon”, which they would always play with a dedication to Claire every time Claire and Paul went on a date anywhere Mike and Mark were playing. Their performance of this romantic and seasonally appropriate song sets the stage for a relaxing evening of undeniable musical and vocal talent.

So here we are at our 8th annual celebration of life, love, and friends, at the time of each fall’s Harvest moon, the full moon closest to the Autumnal equinox. Often, the harvest moon seems to be bigger or brighter or more colorful than other full moons, so it’s a great time to enjoy a romantic concert. And it marks the beginning of the change of seasons, reminding us of the passing of time, and how important it is to share our time with those we love. There are a lot of special things about this 8th Annual Harvest Moon concert. For one, this will be our second Harvest Moon concert since we’ve been married, and the second Harvest Moon concert in our new home. Considering that our very first Harvest Moon concert was a surprise party for Claire, it’s nice how things have come full circle.

Weather permitting, this year’s concert will be held outside under that beautiful full Harvest Moon. We will move inside if the weather won’t cooperate, in which case there will not be room for those holding Provisional RSVPs.

RSVP is required, but we are NOT accepting advance payment on these Provisional RSVPs. Please click the RSVP link and let us know you’ll be here.

Location disclosed with RSVP
When: Friday September 8th at 7:15pm

Weather permitting, this will be an outdoor concert, so bring lawn chairs. (It will be held inside if weather dictates.)

Tickets: $20 each. (100% of all money received will go to our guest musicians.)

The general public is invited.

BYOB. Complimentary snacks and bottled water will be provided.

We are looking forward to seeing you!

7th Annual Harvest Moon Concert
Friday Sept 16th

It’s that time of year again!7th Annual Harvest Moon House Concert

7th Annual Harvest Moon House Concert
Our 7th Annual Harvest Moon house concert, featuring Mike Pritchard and Mark Wallney, will be Friday September 16th at 7:15pm.

The inspiration for this extra-special house concert is taken from Neil Young’s song “Harvest Moon”, which Mike and Mark perform better than ‘ol Neil himself. No disrespect to Neil Young, but let’s face it, Mike Pritchard’s voice is so much smoother and stronger than Neil’s warbly falsetto, and Mark Wallney’s guitar mastery is similarly superior. Their performance of this romantic and seasonally appropriate song sets the stage for a relaxing evening of undeniable musical and vocal talent.

This concert is our 7th annual celebration of life, love, and friends, at the time of each fall’s Harvest moon, the full moon closest to the Autumnal equinox. Often, the harvest moon seems to be bigger or brighter or more colorful than other full moons, so it’s a great time to enjoy a romantic concert. And it marks the beginning of the change of seasons, reminding us of the passing of time, and how important it is to share our time with those we love.

There are a lot of special things about this 7th Annual Harvest Moon concert. For one, this will be our FIRST concert in our new home, and it’s no longer Paul Johnson’s house, it’s now Paul and Claire’s house. Considering that our very first Harvest Moon concert was a surprise party for Claire, it’s nice how things have come full circle.

Another special thing about this 7th Annual Harvest Moon concert is that for the first time since our first concert, this year’s concert will be on the ACTUAL DATE of the OFFICIAL FULL HARVEST MOON! (it’s normally been one to four days before or after the actual full Harvest Moon.)

If that’s not enough, weather permitting, Paul and Claire’s house will allow us to hold this year’s concert outside under that beautiful full Harvest Moon. (we will take the first RSVPs assuming that the weather won’t cooperate, and then we will take overflow “rain check” RSVPs that will only be valid if we are able to hold the concert outdoors.)

There may be a few PROVISIONAL seats available, IF IT DOESN’T RAIN and we can hold the concert outside – CLICK THIS LINK for more concert details and to RSVP. (RSVP and advance payment are required, as this concert always sells out, so if seats are available, grab them quickly before they are gone!)  Provisional seats will be refunded in the event weather forces the concert inside.

CLICK HERE TO RSVP or for more concert information.

We are looking forward to a particularly special Harvest Moon this year! See you then!

Our 6th Annual Harvest Moon house concert, featuring Mike Pritchard and Mark Wallney, will be Friday September 25th at 7:15pm.

This concert is our 6th annual celebration of life, love, and friends, at the time of each fall’s Harvest moon, the full moon closest to the Autumnal equinox.

5th Annual Harvest Moon concert!
Friday 9/5/2014 with The Hat Trick
Mike Pritchard, Mark Wallney,
and Mike Boyd

Our 5th annual Harvest Moon party!

Sold Out!

Just like last year, this year’s event sold out in about 24 hours.  And the concert was well worth all the anticipation.  Mike, Mark, & Mike never sounded better!  Their vocals were spot-on, and the musicianship was unsurpassed.  And they performed several new songs they have never done in public before.  We can’t wait for next year!  In the meantime, check back here in the next few weeks for a few videos from this 5th annual Harvest Moon concert.

3rd Annual Harvest Moon House Concert

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 5 years since we first hosted The Hat Trick in our living room!  This concert is our 5th annual celebration of life, love, and friends, at the time of each fall’s Harvest moon, the full moon closest to the Autumnal equinox. Often, the harvest moon seems to be bigger or brighter or more colorful than other full moons, so it’s a great time to enjoy a romantic concert. And it marks the beginning of the change of seasons, reminding us of the passing of time, and how important it is to share our time with those we love.

The inspiration for this extra-special house concert is taken from Neil Young’s song “Harvest Moon”, which The Hat Trick performs better than ‘ol Neil himself.

TheHatTrick2No disrespect to Neil Young, but let’s face it, Mike Pritchard’s voice is so much smoother and stronger than Neil’s warbly falsetto, and Mark Wallney’s guitar mastery is similarly superior. Their performance of this romantic and seasonally appropriate song sets the stage for a relaxing evening of undeniable musical and vocal talent by Mark Wallney, Mike Pritchard and Mike Boyd.

The Hat Trick needs no introduction to Lubbock music fans, as these guys are literally musical legends in Lubbock. All three have musical chops and talent that anyone can appreciate, a point well-proven when none other than the legendary Graham Nash (of Crosby, Stills, and Nash and The Hollies) joined The Hat Trick on stage to perform with them! As Mike Pritchard would later say, “It was surreal performing “Bus Stop” with they guy who wrote it!” Mark Wallney added “Wow, we are still excited about the show and honestly fulfilled one of our childhood dreams, playing with one of our greatest music heroes. Most of you know that CSN is one of our biggest influences that even got the Hat Trick started in the first place.”

Here is a video of their performance of “Helplessly Hoping” from their 2013 HubCityMusic.com Harvest Moon house concert:

3rd Annual Harvest Moon House Concert

It sold out again, this time in only 24 hours!  It’s become a tradition – our 4th Annual Harvest Moon Concert with Mike Pritchard, Mark Wallney, and Mike Boyd, aka The Hat Trick.  And they were in top form, perhaps the best they’ve ever been!  It was a musically perfect evening, with a magical aura that seems to accompany the Harvest Moon.

This concert is our 4th Annual celebration of life, love, and friends, at the time of each fall’s Harvest moon, the full moon closest to the Autumnal equinox.
