Talented Artists to Perform at QDMA’s National Convention and Expo
BOGART, GEORGIA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Quality Deer Management Association’s National Convention and Whitetail Expo will feature talented artists throughout the four-day event in Louisville, Kentucky, July 23-26.
Kicking off the festivities, the Welcome Reception will feature the Joe Freeman Bluegrass Band from Crown City, Ohio. The band will perform their one-of-a-kind show, a combination of celebrated music and comedy while the guests enjoy hors d’ oeuvres and bourbon tasting in a casual meet-and-greet environment.
Gina West, along with guitarist Bobbie Stacks, will open the stage during Friday’s REACH Celebration Party. West, a Nashville resident, was a top-20 contestant on Nashville Star. She is also a songwriter and, appropriate for this event, an avid hunter. Bobbie Stacks, also a songwriter, has been performing on stage since age ten and has collaborated on a number of original projects for other artists. West and Stacks have opened for Daryle Singletary, Montgomery Gentry, and Shenandoah, among others. Paul Bogart, a rising star in Nashville, will follow the ladies with his traditional country sound. Bogart has a passion for rodeo that is expressed in his music. Not only does Bogart have a voice, but he is a talented song writer and performer with down-to-earth sensibility and a crowd-pleasing presentation.
Saturday night, following the Grand Banquet, the late-crowd will head to the Second Annual Firepot Gathering at Champion’s Bar in the Downtown Marriott, the host hotel for the Convention. Longtime QDMA supporter Rans Thomas of Tecomate Wildlife Systems will perform his music, traditional country with a twist of southern rock, while guests relax and wind down.
QDMA’s National Convention will include two days of seminars and research sessions from the nation’s noted deer experts and researchers, a two-day Expo featuring over 100 exhibitors and celebrity presentations, plus banquets featuring the aforementioned entertainment as well as auctions and raffles.
