AdventGX hosts Director of the Texas Music Office of the Governor


The Advent GX team was recently honored with a visit from Brendon Anthony, the newly appointed Director of the Texas Music Office at the Office of the Governor. Mr. Anthony toured all of our current downtown projects, including the 140-year-old Grand Stafford Theater where, it turns out, he once performed early in his music career.  We were honored to have him back at the Stafford and supporting community development just one week into his new role as Director of the Texas Music Office.

The Texas Music Office (TMO) is a state-funded business promotion office and information clearinghouse for the Texas music industry.  The office promotes the development of the music industry in the state by informing members of that industry and the public about the resources available in the state for music production. The TMO is the sister office to the Texas Film Commission, both of which are within the Office of the Governor.

In the Fall of 2012 Advent GX opened the Grand Stafford Theater in a 140-year-old building located in Historic Downtown Bryan as a community development project showcasing the economic potential of the arts and heritage preservation. The theater, now featuring state of the art sound and lighting equipment, has been host to Grammy-award winning artists, up-and-coming talent, and local musicians across a wide variety of genre.
