Keller Williams Summer Nights Concert Re-Scheduled for July 8

The upgrading of Tropical Storm Alex to Category 2 Hurricane Alex put a damper on tonight’s Keller Williams concert at Kings Harbor. The concert sponsored by Keller Williams and Kings Harbor has been cancelled due to the weather and re-scheduled for Thurs., July 8 from 6-9 p.m.

The Summer Nights at the Harbor series at Kings Harbor in Kingwood will resume next week with the band “These Guys Here.” The Kingwood-based group plays a combination of classic rock and country songs with folk-inspired vocal harmonies.

Keller Williams and Kings Harbor Introduce Summer Nights Concerts

This summer Keller Williams Realty Northeast and Kings Harbor Waterfront Village will extend their successful concert series by adding four additional Thursday night events to the schedule. The Summer Nights at the Harbor will be held June 10, July 1, Aug. 5 and Sept. 2 from 6-9 p.m.

Designed to provide entertainment the whole family can enjoy, the free Summer Nights concerts will include music, the plaza fountain and a clown providing balloon animals and face painting.

“The community has been so supportive of the Friday night concerts that we have been putting on since October 2008,” says Lisa Dempsey, Keller Williams Northeast senior team leader. “We’ve decided to expand on the fun this summer with an event geared toward families with younger children. We hope this will get more people out to the Harbor to enjoy the restaurants and the beautiful waterside location.”

Sundance Draws Big Crowd to Keller Williams Concert

While the temperature neared 90 degrees at the start of the Keller Williams concert last Friday night, the heat didn’t deter an estimated 1,000 people who visited Kings Harbor to hear former “American Idol” finalist Sundance Head. A strong breeze off of Lake Houston provided welcome relief for the audience, but the wind played havoc with Sundance’s acoustic guitar. It broke just before the concert and he had to run home for a back up.

A true professional, Sundance didn’t miss a beat and started the concert right on time. He was joined on the Harbor Plaza by Keith Rowe on guitar and vocals.

Lake Houston Family YMCA Unveils Expanded Facility

I moved to Kingwood in September of 1993 – the month the Lake Houston Family YMCA first opened its doors. Nearly seventeen years later, the YMCA in Kingwood is looking new again. On May 13, I attended the ribbon cutting ceremony marking the facility’s $5 million expansion project and was amazed at the results.

The host of the event was Jenna Dhayer, the YMCA’s executive director. She welcomed the members of the business community and the YMCA board and saying: “So many of you have been involved in this project for so many years. From the bottom of my heart, and my staff’s heart, we really appreciate your support.”

Dhayer recognized Keller Williams Realty Northeast Co-Owner Mark Heinrich for more than 20 years of volunteer efforts for the YMCA. She noted that he has been involved in all three capital campaigns, served on the board for 12 years and was named Volunteer of the Year.

Sundance Head To Perform at Keller Williams Concert on May 21

The free Keller Williams Concert Series at Kings Harbor will welcome a local favorite in May. Sundance Head, a 2007 “American Idol” finalist who hails from Porter, TX, will perform on Friday, May 21 from 7-10 p.m at the waterfront venue on Lake Houston.

A blues artist, Sundance released his first CD self titled “Sundance Head” in February and has performed at the House of Blues in Houston. A versatile musician, he plays a variety of instruments including the guitar, drums and harmonica. Sundance will be accompanied at the concert by Keith Rowe on vocals and guitar.

Humble ISD School Board Election Takes Place Saturday

After seven days of early voting, only 146 votes have been cast in the Humble ISD School Board election, according to Peggy Young, Humble ISD executive secretary.

That is a surprisingly low number. More residents should want a stake in the election considering that the quality of a school district correlates to an area’s housing values. In light of the recent report of a $11 million budget deficit at Humble ISD and budget cuts looming, the people we elect to the school board will have a significant impact on our community.
