Without music, concerts wouldn't exist and “funk” would just be the smell emanating from an old sock filled with corn. Lend an ear to this GrouponLive deal. For $15, you get two tickets to Reckless Kelly's Celebrity Softball Jam. The fourth-annual event swings open its doors at noon on Sunday, April 22, 2012. Softball players begin swinging at 1 p.m., and the concert begins at 3 p.m. Accompanied by a ticketed adult, kids younger than 12 enter the festivities for free.
Local country crew Reckless Kelly's celebrity softball jams raise funding for Texan youth sports teams. Festivities kick off with a softball game, wherein local athletes and their musician rivals compete for glory during a friendly flurry of smoke-trailed strikes, pilfered bases, and deep-field dive catches. Once the last batter is out and the last mascot is tranquilized, Reckless Kelly dons its guitars and takes to the stage alongside crowd-pleasers such as Micky and the Motorcars and American Idol finalist Bo Bice. A finale of sky-brightening fireworks communicates the jovial mood of event-goers to nearby UFOs.
