2017 PROGRAM

Lenz Creative Director Ben Barnes recently developed the visual identity for the Amplify Decatur Music Festival, including its family of logos, event swag, and environmental design. The festival was presented by Lenz, headlined by Lucinda Williams, and raised $40,000 to help Decatur Cooperative Ministry prevent and alleviate homelessness in Decatur and DeKalb County.

Lenz creative director Ben Barnes said he wanted to develop a brand for the festival that supported its strategic goals. “I wanted to make sure the festival’s brand was an extension of the existing concert series, but also something that really spoke to the nature of the festival,” he said. “Outdoor events have very unique design challenges and Amplify Decatur Music Festival is no different. By developing a diverse range of logos and icons that speak the same visual language, we’re able to successfully meet those challenges while making the festival experience feel cohesive from beginning to end.”

Next year’s Amplify Decatur Music Festival will be held April 14, 2018.

Amplify Decatur Music Festival Stage

Lenz recently presented the 2017 Amplify Decatur Concert Series, helping raise $40,000 for its beneficiary Decatur Cooperative Ministry (DCM), a Decatur-based, nonprofit organization that works to prevent and alleviate poverty and homelessness in Decatur and DeKalb County.

Since the first Amplify event (formerly known as Poverty Is Real) in 2011, Amplify has helped to raise more than $150,000 for DCM. Each year, Lenz has served as the presenting sponsor. Amplify was founded by Lenz partner and Vice President of Marketing Mike Killeen, who remains an Amplify board member. Christine Mahin, Lenz Marketing’s Accounts Supervisor, who helped plan and produce the inaugural Amplify Decatur Music Festival in 2016, served as festival director this year. Lenz President and CEO Richard J. Lenz serves as the Chair of the Amplify Advisory Board. And the entire Lenz team contributed to the marketing and production of the event.

On April 22, thousands gathered on the Downtown Decatur Square for the Amplify Decatur Musical Festival, the centerpiece of the concert series. Americana legend and three-time Grammy winner Lucinda Williams headlined the outdoor festival, which drew more than 2,000 guests. Also performing were Noah Gundersen, John Moreland, Harold Holloway & Company, Packway Handle Band, and Kristen Englenz & The Committed.

“Anyone who attended the event will recognize how special this community is, as hundreds of volunteers, sponsors, restaurants, beer vendors, citizens, city officials, police force, and artists came together to create a magical night,” said Richard Lenz. “It takes a village to put on a great event like we experienced, and I can’t thank them enough. I was lucky enough to spend time with Lucinda and she said she was impressed with the event and audience, which meant a lot.”

Amplify Decatur also featured a four-night stand at historic Eddie’s Attic, featuring Caroline Herring, Leopold & His Fiction, Scott Miller, Bob Sima, and Angie Keilhauer. On April 30, it culminated with the Bob Dylan vs. The Band cover night featuring seven local and regional acts.

Major sponsors included WABE 90.1 FM, The Pinewood, Lockman Homebuilding, The Leafmore Group, Decatur Package Store, Natalie Gregory, and Iris and Bruce Feinberg. Additional sponsors included AtlantaBen.com, Georgia Urology, Hall, Booth, Smith, First Baptist Decatur, Courtyard Marriott, Oakhurst Realty Partners, Plumb Works, Creative Loafing, Scott D. Miller M.D., McCurdy & Candler LLC, Private Bank of Decatur, Verisol Partners, Travis Grubb Residential, Decatur Rotary Club, North Decatur Methodist Church, 97.1 The River, Brick Store Pub, Decatur Presbyterian Church, Decatur CD, Oakhurst Baptist Church, Dynamo Swim Club, Holy Trinity Parish, The Arlo, and New Chance Signs.

Lenz is extremely proud to have worked alongside the Amplify My Community team to make this event a reality.

Lenz is proud to be co-sponsoring a Classical Brunch at City Winery on Sunday, December 4th from noon to 3 PM.

Attendees of the brunch will be treated to a full classical show hosted by radio personality Lois Reitzes. In addition to hosting several WABE 90.1 programs, Lois produces and hosts WABE’s Atlanta Symphony Orchestra broadcasts.

Along side Lenz, WABE 90.1 is also a sponsor of City Winery’s Classical Brunch.

“Lenz is excited to be a part of an event that emphasizes the beauty of classical music,” Lenz founder and CEO Richard Lenz said.

City Winery Atlanta hosts monthly specialty brunches.

amplifyLenz recently helped Amplify Decatur raise $30,000 to aid Decatur Cooperative Ministry’s efforts to prevent and alleviate poverty and homelessness in Decatur and DeKalb County.

Lenz is a founding partner of Amplify My Community, the organization that produced the Amplify Concert series, in partnership with Eddie’s Attic, the Southeast’s premier music listening room.

Amplify Decatur has raised and donated more than $110,00 to DCM since 2011; this year’s $30,000 gift is the most an Amplify concert series has generated to date.

“Amplify Decatur is a true win-win,” said Richard Lenz, the company’s president and CEO. “Our team has a lot of fun supporting the event and cause, and also gains great satisfaction knowing that we are helping Amplify and Decatur Cooperative Ministry. Decatur is very important to us, and we know no better way of expressing that than to support this awesome concert series.”

The Grammy-nominated duo The Milk Carton Kids co-headlined the outdoor festival along with bluegrass upstarts Elephant Revival. Also performing were Penny & Sparrow, Eliot Bronson, The Bitteroots, Kristen Englenz, The Dammages, and Magic Birds.

Amplify My Community Executive Director Spencer Smith said Amplify Decatur was a community-wide effort. “It truly takes a whole community to produce this concert series,” he said. “From the sponsors – including our Presenting Sponsor Lenz Marketing who has been with us from the start – to the volunteers, the musicians, and of course all those who attended—we are forever indebted for everyone’s support.”

Amplify Decatur also featured a three-night stand at historic Eddie’s Attic, featuring The Roosevelts, Delta Moon, Dwayne Shivers with Anthony Aparo, and Abbie Gardner and Jesse Terry, as well as a Prince cover night, called “Let’s Go Crazy,” which featured 10 local and regional acts.

Plans are already underway for the 2017 Amplify Decatur Concert Series.
