Williams Honor is back on stage at two new venues for live performances again
When the pandemic hit, with live venues closed, Williams Honor turned their focus and energies to a weekly livestream show. Their efforts paid off with “The Willi Ho Show ” topping the International Pollstar Livestream charts. The country duo; Reagan Richards and Gordon Brown of Williams Honor also sold out two appearances at The Vogel within the last 6 months and are looking forward to more mask-less public performances.
Williams Honor just added Sunday July 4th High Noon Beach Stage Bourre to their summer schedule. Bourre is Atlantic City’s new home for country music that is sponsored by Cat Country 107.3. Bourre is located just steps off of the boardwalk at South 201 New York Ave. It offers free parking and a large food and cocktail menu. Reagan and Gordon are excited to be a part of Bourre’s new venue where you can hear their full band and catch fireworks too. In the event of rain, the show will be moved inside.
Reagan and Gordon are also taking part in helping to launch an exciting new project for the Monmouth County Tri-city community, called onPEARL. The events will be taking place at the 10PRL event space in Long Branch NJ. The series will bring artists closer to their audience with the assistance of a specialized backdrop called a cyclorama. The backdrop will show multimedia content that brings their story to life as the artist “Tells Their Story”. Each show will end with a question and answer dialogue. The best and most supportive businesses of the Jersey Shore will be featured as well as community support.
The event will be taped by George McMorrow and his team from Cinecall for later broadcast. George directed Williams Honor’s “Send It To Me” video as well as the most recent Bruce Springsteen performance honoring Woody Guthrie. The Asbury Ushers will be in the house to seat everyone and bring the show to life.
Gordon Brown teamed up with April Centrone to create the series “Tell Your Story.” Centrone is the owner of 10PRL, she says “We are so thrilled to be finally past the pandemic and back to what makes our heart beat. We at 10PRL strive to promote community arts events for all, bringing music, dance, experimental theatre, filmmaking and visual arts. These events are the backbone of a safe and inclusive creative environment and eclectic center of the arts, open to people of all gender, orientation, race, culture, religion, age and ability. We hope onPEARL will be that program which will transform audience experience in our historic Jersey Shore arts community and beyond, offering the spectator immersive, state of the art audio-visuals, and an intimate environment to connect with their favorite artists like never before. Seeing a concert may never be the same.”
“We are so thrilled to help develop this new engaging series. With my experience putting together “Writer in the Raw” and “Wave Gatherings”, onPEARL is sure to be something special for our music community. We can’t wait to tell our story and what other artists and speakers tell theirs,” adds Gordon Brown.
