UPDATE: The will be a memorial service for Mason Saturday, Feb. 2 at 2 p.m. in the Exhibition Hall at Robinson Center Music Hall. Afterward, there will be a wake at Stickyz from 3-6 p.m. The Mauldin family has requested that attendees wear red.

We learned some tragic news yesterday. Mason Mauldin, of Little Rock, died in a plane crash in Louisiana yesterday afternoon.

Mauldin was a fixture on the Little Rock music scene, playing with Sugar & The Raw, Big Boots and Collin Vs. Adam. He was also a pilot for Central Flying Service.

Mauldin was scheduled to perform with Collin Vs. Adam at last night's Musicians Showcase. The photo above is of Mauldin performing with Big Boots at a previous Times showcase.

On a personal note, I worked with Mason for a couple of months when I moved to Little Rock. While we weren't super close, we would catch up whenever we ran into each other. He was such a sharp, funny guy who was always fun to talk to. I can only imagine how devastated his close friends and family members are. Our hearts go out to them.

Funeral arrangements have not been made yet, but we will provide an update when we know more.

The Presbytery also expressed its opposition to a pending House bill that, in the name of "conscience," would protect those who discriminate against gay people.
