The Pigs hit the airwaves to sponsor and cover a fantastic live
music and craft beer festival at Fountain Square Brewery, the
second of five Discovery Music events sponsored by Spark Joy Music
and Musical Family Tree. Non stop, high energy talent hit the
stages at noon and didn’t stop till after midnight.
We started off the day with a quick visit from Grover, followed by Aaron from Musical Family Tree. We were all a bit ashamed to not know more about this non-profit organization doing so much for the music scene in and around Indy. Aaron educates us on the Family Tree as well as a little about her own band and where they can be found.
Fountain Square’s, Luke Nelson joins the boys once again to tell us about the beer on hand at the event, as well as one made especially for Jackie Martinez, and what’s brewing in the upcoming future.
We end Part One with a very special visit from Mr. Jared Hiner, the man behind Kammy’s Kause. We know all our fans in Indy know all about this incredible yearly event, but for those outside Indy not familiar yet, Jared goes into great detail about his organization, the upcoming event to benefit families dealing with 4p-, also known as Wolf-Hirschhorn Syndrome (WHS), an extremely rare chromosome disorder, and his beautiful daughter, Kammy, who is the inspiration for it all.
The Pigs were invited to cover the 14th Annual Kammy’s Kause, the two day music festival coming up on August 18th - 20th at the Fortville American Legion Park. This year’s event includes: Kammy’s Kidzone, Kammy’s Ride, a petting zoo, pony rides, face painting, balloon artists, bounce houses, live art, food trucks, 27 midwest bands, silent auKtion, merchandise, great people, free camping (tents only) and parking. ALL funds raised are donated directly to the 4p- Support Group.
Tune into Part Two of Hops & Hertz coming out soon with Spark Joy’s, Mr. Benjamin Cannon, musical guests, and more.
