Oct. 10: Teri Joyce and the Men of Millheim Pie-Bake Off

Friday, Oct. 10, join EcoVents at the Bremen Town Ballroom in Millheim for an evening of bonafide Texas music and a pie-baking contest like no other you’ve seen.

Spitfire and songwriter extraordinaire Teri Joyce provides the music for the evening.  All the way from Austin, Texas, Teri brings her own brand of country and traditional honky tonk songs that’ll keep you two-steppin’ all evening.

Teri Joyce is currently on a tour of the Northeast United States promoting her new album “Kitchen Radio.” John Conquest from Third Coast Music says of Teri and her new album, “
“She’s about as tall as a shotgun, but she’s larger than life behind a microphone. Kitchen Radio solidifies her reputation as a country songwriter.”

Although Teri is small in stature, she likes a big show, and she looms like a giant to those who remember a time in country music when you could still cheat in a song and smoke in a bar.

When Teri rides into Millheim, she’ll be backed by some great local musicians, including Bill Wilgus on guitar, Steve Buckalew on fiddle, John Kennedy on bass, and Kevin Lowe on drums.

Not only will guests see some great Texas music, but they will witness the men of Millheim duke it out to see who bakes the best pie in all of the valley. This contest is greatly anticipated, with men all over town already planning their strategies.

A burrito bar dinner begins at 7pm and the pie-baking judging begins at 7:15.

Local dance expert Annie Mascelli will be giving two-step dance lessons at 7:30.  Even those with two-left feet are sure to come away with some new dancing skills that they can use all night long.  Dance lessons will start at 7:30pm.

Dinner costs $10 and the concert costs $10.  Voting tickets for the Pie-Baking contest are included with dinner or can be purchased for $5.

Men of Millheim Pie Contest Rules

Contestant and Pie Maker must identify as a man, and said man must work alone to make his pie.
Please submit 2 pies (1 for judging and one for auction).  It would probably be smart to use a disposable pie pan.
Men who submit pies get free admission for himself and one guest (kids get free admission).
This is a pie contest.  When you enter a pie, it must be a pie, including a bottom crust and a filling of your choice.
All pies must use homemade pie crust.
Any kind of pie can enter (seasonal, fruit, savory, custard, funky, etc).
One entry per person
Contestants must live or work within 15 Miles of Millheim Borough
We encourage contestants to rsvp to ecovents@gmail.com
We encourage contestants to  wear an apron.

How it will hopefully work:
Everyone who buys dinner for the event gets one ticket that they can use to vote for their favorite pie.  Those who do not buy dinner, can purchase a tasting ticket for $5.  The pie with the most tickets wins.  (We are working out how to win in other categories as well).

In the event of a tie, our special guest Teri Joyce will be the final judge. .

The second pie will be auctioned off and the prize money will be split among the winners and the band (‘cause we need to pay the band, y’all!).
