Lance and Terri Griffin and Gunny Mathison Team Up for a Cause
Fans of reining and fans of music alike will want to attend a jam session at 902 Bar & Grill in Lake Kiowa, Texas. The night of fun will begin at 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 9.
Headlining the session will be National Reining Horse Association Two Million Dollar Owner Lance Griffin and his wife Terri, along with NRHA Professional Gunny Mathison, who is a new bass player. Although the group doesn’t have a formal name, it is sure to provide entertainment and fun.
Plus, it’s all for a good cause. Donations will be encouraged to benefit the Reining Horse Foundation.
“This will be a fun get-together with friends and will also be Gunny’s debut on the bass guitar,” Lance Griffin noted.
Lance and Terri have been playing together for more than eight years. The couple recently began riding their horses in Texas and introduced Mathison to the bass guitar.
“Gunny has been enjoying the music and learning how to play,” noted Mathison’s wife, Monica. “Not only will this be an enjoyable evening; it is also a great opportunity to raise funds for an important cause.”
Leslie Baker, executive director of the Reining Horse Foundation, noted, “We love when we learn of outside fundraisers that will benefit the Reining Horse Foundation, and this is no exception. We certainly appreciate the broad support for the RHF. Reiners talk often about this tight-knit community that knows how to show together, have fun together, and help each other.”
There will be guest performers and music will range through a variety of genres. It is a great opportunity to enjoy friends and music while being entertained.
902 Bar & Grill is located on FM 902 across from the Lake Kiowa entrance. For information, visit the Facebook page at facebook.com/902grill.
