AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AMFM Magazine has partnered with and Elevated Minds Music to bring March Music Madness Week to Aussie's Beachbar and Grill in Austin, Texas March 14th - 18th.

The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus will be on premise conducting live interviews with Kenny Loggins, The Flaming Lips, Jesse Dayton, and others. The bus, a rolling state of the art recording studio made possible by an agreement with Yoko Ono Lennon, is being brought to the party by Luke George and the Lowell George/Little Feat Legacy Project.

In its 8th year, the event will feature almost 40 bands over 4 days. Headliners will include Organica Music Group's Margo Rey, who will sing her hit "Let the Rain," which reached number 17 on the Adult Contemporary Chart last year. Organica Music Group released Ms. Rey's highly anticipated CD, "Habit", which features her new Top 20 charting single "Between Us," as well as her recent hit song "Let the Rain."
