I wanted to comment on the success of the 6th annual summer “Stars Under The Stars,” featuring Broadway and Lubbock’s own David Gaschen. The event was held on Friday, August 13, 2010 from 6:30 to 10:00 PM at the Buddy Holly Center and Meadows Courtyard.  “Stars Under the Stars” was a very successful evening of food, drink, and entertainment benefitting music education and scholarships. Guest host and emcee was none other than TV and radio personality Jeff Klotzman.  He was spectacular as usual.  Jeff has graciously provided his expertise every year.

David Gaschen, along with fifteen-year-old singer Jackie Wasson, were amazing.  David wowed the crowd with his charisma and beautiful voice. His list of songs included genres of country, blues, pop, and jazz along with his usual dazzling Broadway standards. The crowd also enjoyed the playing of Jim Gardner, the singing of Sandy Storey along with the woodwind playing of Doug Storey. They performed as the Polk Street Jazz.  Everyone combined to accompany and feature David and Jackie singing duet on Natalie Cole’s setting of  “Unforgettable.”  We appreciate all of the great food from chefs Matt Britton and Melissa Rowe, the 150 attending music supporters, along with the great sponsors for this event.

Please take the time to view the 2010 Sponsors. Information for next year’s event will be on the website early next year. Please mark your calendar for the 2011  “Stars Under the Stars”, Friday, August 12.
