Sonrise Notes for June 24th....
...Welcome to the first weekend of summer!
...You’ve probably heard us talking about the Music Boat and all the established artists you can see perform on the cruise, but if you’re an independent singer, songwriter or group, how would you like to be able to perform too? It’s called the Indie Insider Experience and if you’re one of the first 50 to register, it could be you! Here’s the number to call, 800-889-5265, mention “Indie Insider Experience” and tell them that you heard it on Sonrise Radio.
...If you’re headed to Creationfest at Agape Farm in Mt. Union, PA this Wednesday through Saturday, you’ll see Switchfoot, along with Chris Tomlin, Thousand Foot Krutch, Tenth Avenue North, Crowder, Newsboys, and a dozen or so more. After this weekend, Creationfest is back in Enumclaw, WA July 18-21. For more info, go to www.creationfest.com.
