The Texas Bowl is an annual celebration of the culture, heritage, and football tradition of the Lone Star State and is quickly becoming one of the premier bowl games in the nation. The bowl has broken attendance records every year since its inception and donated over $200,000 to DePelchin Children's Center, the bowl's official charity beneficiary. Beginning in 2010, the Texas Bowl will partner with ESPN and feature teams from the Big 12 and Big Ten Conferences.
Percussion One has provided exciting pre-game tailgating and entertainment for the Texas Bowl in 2008 and 2009. In addition, Lamar Burkhalter, founder and executive director of Percussion One, has also served as a Committee Chairman for the Texas Bowl since 2007.
This Texas 501(c)3 nonprofit organization is committed to education, performance and outreach through the creation of community based percussion ensembles. The Percussion One Foundation brings together musicians/percussionists from many diverse age groups, backgrounds and music programs to explore many areas of percussion performance while also improving their percussion and music education.
