Beverly Perry, Artist, Musician and Philanthropist Launched BP Music Network with the premise of "Musicians for Musicians". She also performed the Title Track and released her new CD, "River".
This National Event, included over 30 Musicians coming together from across the country to perform and celebrate an evening of music and talent. The Lawton Country Club in the Great Plains of Oklahoma was up to this task. Their staff went over and beyond in crafting and transforming the venue as a backdrop to this monumental event. Never before had so many musical artist graced this venue at one time.
Beverly Perry - Artistic Director & Owner, PB Music Network, had the vision to create a platform where she could assist other musicians let their music be heard. "If I am forced to define myself musically, I would say I am a multi-genre singer/songwriter," Perry said. "I've been writing songs, well, I guess before I could even write, always making up a tune."
Now fearless, Perry began work on her debut disc. She credits the words of former president Theodore Roosevelt with lighting her fire and slaying any timidity.
"This quote made a huge impact on my decision to record," Perry said. "'It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena ... who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.'"
The event was also a "coming out" party for BPMusic Network, sponsored by Flux Fore Inc. marketing. A wide range of genres were represented, from Country with Terry Allen Band and Kenny Gholson Band, to Crosstown Groove, to Adot Blount's Hip Hop stylings and more. Brian Pounds is a member of the BPMusic Network, Perry said. The grandson of Lawton residents, he recently made it through the blind auditions for "The Voice" and is on Team Blake.
Adrian Martinez, Guilherme Andrade of The Events Moderne Team from Dallas, Texas, Dalise Teel of FluxFore Marketing, and Nelda Cooper of Lighting Events Dramatically, collaborated to make the venue stand out for this occasion.
