Leadership

The Bugle Boy Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the mission of "Elevating & Sustaining Original Live Music".

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Our all-volunteer Board of Directors oversees fundraising and financial stewardship for many projects in support of our mission.

Lane Gosnay

Founder /Ex. Director /Board Member

A graduate of Texas A & M Maritime Academy and a former Texas Game Warden, Lane Gosnay may have what some would consider odd credentials for the founder/operator of a music venue, but her background gives her the tools she needs to be serious about her business. In a world where many in the music business consider the term "music business" an oxymoron, Lane takes the business of music seriously. Lane's passion and seriousness in presenting musicians in an "extreme listening" room environment hails from the palpable connection between the artist and the attentive audience.

David Vogel

President Emeritus

A 5th generation Houstonian, David Vogel graduated from U.T Austin in 1971 with a BBA in Marketing. He's been a part-time resident of Fayette County since 1961, and has lived here full-time since 1978. He's worked in construction and real estate, and is now retired, manages "the farm", and serves with a number of organizations as a volunteer officer or board member."I grew up with parents who both loved good music, and who had beautiful singing voices.  My mother took voice lessons, sang for weddings and other functions, and filled our home with her beautiful soprano, operatic voice. My father had a fine, deep baritone voice, and the two of them often sang duets. I took accordian lessons briefly as a kid, but baseball was of higher priority, and my talent in music developed as a listener, so The Bugle Boy is perfect for me."

Vogel amuses himself with very limited skill on his guitar, which impresses no one except his wife and devoted dogs.
