The Collin County Songwriters Association teams up once again with the City of Frisco’s Parks and Recreation Department for Rockin’ the Park ’09 on Saturday, April 18th. This year’s Rockin’ the Park will be held at Warren Sports Complex on Eldorado Parkway, west of Preston Road, and will center around the park’s pavilion. Other supporting organizations include Subzero Sound (providing audio engineering), Anderson Guitar Gallery, and Neighborhood Arts and Music School, and the Frisco Soccer Association.

The event starts with pre-show activities—open mic featuring CCSA members, songwriting seminar and demonstrations—at 12:30 until 3:45. The “Big Show” starts at 4:30, featuring Tredway and Friends, Rory Don Moore, The Foundation, U4IX (pronounced Euphorics) and The 8-Tracks playing until 9:30.
The music runs the gamut from Texana/Americana, to blues, to jazz, to contemporary teen, to classic rock. These acts present some of the best of what North Texas has to offer, and the family-friendly show is sure to appeal to a wide audience.

The CCSA has also joined forces with the Frisco Soccer Association to collect food at the park that day for Frisco Family Services’ food bank. Participants in either the sports or concert events are encouraged to bring canned food to contribute. Feel free to bring food and drinks (no alcohol) to enjoy during the concert.
