Bill Monroe’s Music Park and Wilson Pickins Promotions Alliance For Festival Programs.
Planning a trip to the US anytime soon. Here is some news from Wilson Pickin’s on a new alliance with festival programming for the Bill Monroe Music Park.
Rex Voils, Operations Manager of the park and all music events, along with his daughter-in-law, Haley Voils who coordinates all office operations, reached out to Melanie Wilson largely based on reputation several months ago. Upon the conclusion of the conversation, it was clear that the business relationship would be a positive one.
Melanie really made us feel at ease with her willingness to work closely with us on building a great future for music at the park and ensuring a steadfast foundation for this historic gem. We could tell that she actually cared about the venue and what it means to the industry, as well as putting our well-being forward as her client. Melanie shows that she truly wants us to be a success so that we can be here for musicians, music fans, campers, and visitors from all over the world to enjoy for many years to come – Rex Voils.
Haley and I have worked very closely on creating efficient processes for marketing and booking management moving forward. Diving in there there was a lot of clean-up and reorganizing based on years of many people creating accounts, doing things differently than the last person, and so on. I have enjoyed my first few months working with Rex and Haley so much, and recognize their goals to create an all-inclusive music park that offers something for fans of a variety of genres. Versatility and options are so important to music fans and the shows that we are working on are all fun, quality entertainment at a place that is perfectly set up and historically made for it. As time passes I expect the shows and the lineups to grow with demand, as Rex is making sure all the right details are covered. It’s going to be a great season -Melanie Wilson.
All 5 lineups have been announced on the park website, as well as the respective social media pages, with the first festival taking place June 1-3, the Americana Bean Jamboree.
