“We love that we keep doing the event in both Houston and in Austin,” said Shaun Brennan, Founder of Splice Records. “Two cities, two celebrations with the same format that have that same fun-loving feeling. It feels like a modern day party wrapped in a time warp that is simply all about dancing and having fun the old fashion way!”
The brainchild of Hank Schyma (of local band Southern Backtones fame), who commemorated Elvis’ birthday at Avante Garden each year, Bowie Elvis Fest officially started in 2010 with an inaugural event at the infamous local venue.

Splice Records is also thrilled to announced that Lone Star Beer will be their official 2019 beer sponsor, starting with the labels’ 2019 kick off events, Bowie Elvis Fest in Houston and Austin, their annual River Revival Music Fest in the fall and various other Splice events and parties throughout the year.
“Every concert we have promoted and every event we were involved in over the years, we noticed every musician was always drinking Lone Star Beer,” said Brennan. “The Texas music community has been supported by Lone Star Beer for so long that it is now a part of the scene. It made perfect sense for us as a Texas Label to partner with a brand of beer that we mirror philosophically. Lone Star Beer and Splice Records care about Texas music! Now we can team up and work together to make the sounds and the taste of Texas become one partnership.”
“Lone Star is very excited to partner with Splice Records,” said Mandy Parker, Lone Star Beer Field Marketing Rep. “From its artists to River Revival, Splice is authentically Texas and so is Lone Star beer, it’s a match made in Texas Heaven.”
