Our organization recently hosted a national pastoral conference at the Adam's Mark San Antonio Riverwalk (April 28 - 30, 2003). This was one of three regional conferences this year, which attract both Protestant and Catholic pastors and lay leaders from throughout the United States.
After contacting several music stores and local music venues in San Antonio, I narrowed our "live" entertainment down to the one man, and one band, that unanimously received the highest accolades. And, when Jesse Garza and Acoustic Dream "hit-the-stage," I knew why they seemed to be San Antonio's favorites. From the first note, their smooth harmonies provided the perfect touch for the ambiance we set out to create.
But not only were these guys extremely musically talented, they were professional. As per our contract, they arrived in ample time to set up equipment, connect with our staff and rehearse. Furthermore, they were playing before the first person walked into the ballroom.
In fact, they were so good, we had them back a second night for a special conference dinner we hosted at the hotel.
Though neither my staff nor myself live in San Antonio, when we come back, we will look for Jesse Garza and Acoustic Dream. Our trip to San Antonio would not be complete without indulging ourselves with their exceptional music.
