12A Wednesday, July 21, 2010 Feather River 13ulletin • ! re M. Kate West Chester Editor When Liquid Blue Events partners Jess and Neil~ Horning made the decision to switch from a Caribbean style music format to country western little did they know how much their country entertainers would appreciate Lake Almanor. When the Chris Gardner Band began their set, Gardner himself said, 'Tve got to tell you, this is beautiful country." According to Jess Homing, headliner Chuck Wicks echoed the sentiment. Horning said, "Chuck Wicks was so impressed with the beauty of Lake Almanor that he has delayed his travel plans for several days and rented a boat." Photos by M.

Serving Plumas County since 1993 3454 Hwy 70 • Oroville, CA 95965 Lic. #669409 in TV Nationwide Over Top Channels including HD Channels for 12 and HD is The second annual Mom- boosa Music Festival was held in Chester the afternoon and evening of July 17, and quick- • ly riffled the air with the sound of• toe-tapping tunes and aro- ma of tasty grilled foods. Sponsored by Liquid Blue Events, the production is put together by partners, Jess and Neff Horning, who have long been summer visitors to the Lake Almanor Basin. This year's festival fea- tured blues and country mu- sic by the Whitney Myer Band, the Chris Gardner Band, Alex Woodard and headliner Chuck Wicks. A family affair, Momboosa offered something for every- one: tall cool drinks, colorful bounce house activities, out- door style foods, pony rides, volleyball or dancing on fra- grant meadow grasses. Under a brilliant blue sky with triple-digit tempera- tures, the sea of tents provid- ed by LBE was much appreci- ated by festival guests. Jess Horning said special care had been taken to protect guests from the moving sun and to capture the cooling, after- noon lake breezes. He also took time to talk about LBE's first effort on the meadow and Momboosa 2010. Looking around he said, "I re- ally like the energy of this crowd -- they're having fun. and that's what we intended." He said the primary differ- ence between this year and last is the support his agency received from the local busi- nesses. "We really struggled last year, but this year we got things up and running in a hurry. We are so impressed with the involvement of the business community. It was so much easier this year with everyone volunteering to help," Homing said. In addition to making a StrOnger effo~{'•~o Work more directly with tlocal mer- chants, Horning said they al- so made adjustments to their Momboosa vision. "We really want this festi- val to be a mini vacation for everyone, a trip to the tropics. Last year we presented more Jimmy Buffet-style music, but this year we went country in the hopes of speaking more to our audience," he added. He said he and his brother, Neff, and his partner in Liq- uid Blue Events, could not stress enough that the event was all about family. • He also said he hopes to see even more of the Lake Almanor community during the 2011 Momboosa Music Festival.
