Grantsville, UT – Utah Business Revival is leading the way in supporting all small business owners Reopening Utah.

#UtahBackToWork is the mission behind its May 30th event featuring country music legend Collin Raye. UBR wants to highlight the small business heroes who set up booths and also give them a safe, outdoor opportunity to provide for themselves, their families, and their communities.

Kaysville has shown the world both the best and worst of government since this event’s initial announcement.

“With our Constitutional rights at risk, Kaysville Mayor Katie Witt and Police Chief Sol Oberg have championed our 1st Amendment freedoms of speech and assembly,” Utah Business Revival’s Eric Moutsos proclaimed.

“Unfortunately, Kaysville City Council members Michelle Barber and John Swan Adams are joining with disgraced former councilman Dave Adams and fringe groups like the Sons of Kaysville. In an effort to make government more powerful, they’re choosing to join the ranks of those who threaten our property and right to peaceably assemble,” Moutsos said.

“We care deeply about business owners and those who want to peaceably assemble, enjoy a free concert, and experience quality family fun,” Moutsos said.

UBR has identified an alternate location and is relocating the May 30th event to Studio Ranch Amphitheater near Grantsville. There will be enough space available for up to 300 businesses to participate at this new venue.

“We are anxious to help even more small business owners survive and restore some Constitutional freedoms at the same time,” Moutsos said.

“While it’s sad that some politicians like Michelle Barber and John Swan Adams are drunk on political power and have no concern for small business, UBR continues to stay committed to restoring individual rights and helping Utah’s small businesses survive,” Moutsos concluded.

We are excited to spend an evening hosted in Tooele county with other patriots across Utah!” Eric Moutsos.

The Concert and Business Market will take place on Saturday May 30, 2020 from 5:00 – 10:00 pm

*Event is free, no tickets are required, bring a lawn chair and your family!

If you are a small business and would like a free booth at this event; please visit our website www.utahbusinessrevival.com to request one. Space is limited.  

Please be respectful to those who social distance at 7 feet. Feel free to wear PPE.

Kaysville, UT – Mayor Katie Witt has opened up the city of Kaysville, UT for country music legend Collin Raye to share some of his sixteen #1 hits with Utah.  This event is one of the, if not the, first live concert being held across the United States of America. Kaysville Mayor Witt said, “Come support our local businesses, listen to country music, and be a pioneer and a patriot with us!”

The Concert and Business Revival will take place on Saturday May 30, 2020 from 6:00 – 10:00 pm at Barnes Park. *Event is free, no tickets are required.

Collin Raye said to Eric Moutsos of the Utah Business Revival, “I would be honored to come to Kaysville for the first live concert in America. Music is an extremely powerful tool to help heal our souls, especially in times of uncertainty.”

UBR is excited to help small business owners and hopes to drive revenue to hurting businesses in Kaysville and the state of Utah.

“It’s a great sign to see so many local mayors stepping up!” said Eric Moutsos.  

Eric Moutsos is the former Salt Lake City Police Officer who recently led the Utah Business Revival Market in Vineyard, UT.  At that event, small businesses had the opportunity to showcase their goods and services and there were even some new businesses which launched for the first time.  According to Moutsos, “If we can all stand in line waiting for toilet paper, we can certainly all shop safely in an open air market and enjoy a country music legend, Collin Raye.” 

We are pleased to invite all UBR members, along with the general public, to enjoy this concert and market in Kaysville.  The event will feature so-called “non-essential” businesses and give business owners an opportunity to interact with the public and sell or market their goods and services.  

“These businesses were previously considered non-essential, insofar as some were not on the list of those the government approved to be open during Covid19.  At UBR we believe all business is essential,” Moutsos said.  It is a fundamental right all American citizens share to gather, work and safely interact, even in times of crisis.” 

This event hopes to inspire businesses and organizations all over the country. This is not just a concert, it is an event that wants to send a positive message that maybe it’s time we unify and not let this be another enemy of this country that we will need to overcome.

We call on the governor to lift restrictions that infringe on the people’s first amendment rights of expression and their 14th amendment rights of life, liberty, or property.

If you are a small business and would like a free booth at this event; please visit our website www.utahbusinessrevival.com to request one. Space is limited.  

Please be respectful to those who social distance at 7 feet. Feel free to wear the proper protection.

May 8, 2020 — UTAH BUSINESS REVIVAL TO HOLD INTERFAITH SPIRITUAL REVIVAL AT STATE CAPITOL

Download as PDF

SALT LAKE CITY, UT – Eric Moutsos, the former police officer who recently led the Utah Business Revival in Salt Lake City and the Business Expo in Vineyard, is pleased to announce another safe gathering event in support of people of all beliefs. The event will take place on Saturday May 16, 2020 from noon to 3 pm, at the State Capitol in Salt Lake City.  This is an open invitation for persons of all beliefs to assemble, and peacefully exercise their First Amendment rights, and help Salt Lake City businesses.

“Some are suggesting that the government has the right to ‘allow’ us to go to Church, or to dictate what we ‘must’ do when we get there,” said Eric Moutsos, the event organizer, quoting from a recent KSL article referencing the new Phased Guidelines released on May 6, 2020.  “Our government, especially the State of Utah, does not hold the right to bind people from the free exercise of their conscience,” Moutsos continued.  “There are certain unalienable Rights, endowed by our Creator – meaning rights that cannot be taken away by legislation, health departments, ordinances or the orders of civic leaders; we only lose those rights when we give them away.  We do not give them away. We remind some of our confused public officers that they serve at our pleasure and that we will not give these rights away. We stand for the principles that were fought for by our Founders and those who followed them. We stand together for the Constitution of the United States of America, the Utah Constitution; and specifically the First Amendment.

Saturday’s event will involve persons of all beliefs that may be found in Utah including those who prescribe to no religious custom or practice or who simply want to support the First Amendment.  According to Moutsos “we say, stand with us in person, and in spirit – and we invite everyone to participate whether they are Jewish, Catholic, Latter-day Saint, Muslim, Protestant,Buddhist, Hindu, Energy Healer, or Atheist, you name it.  Stand with us.  We will not give away our rights – through apathy –  what was earned by sacred blood spilled on the fields at Yorktown, the streets of Boston or the forests of Valley Forge. It is time for all citizens of Utah and our Great Nation to wake up and remind our politicians and bureaucrats that our government is of the people, by the people and for the people. We are the people. And we are the answer right now.”

“We keep talking about physical, mental, and economic health, but we are seeing very little talk about our Spiritual Health in society right now, especially on social media. We need to unite by Spirit in person; and we will help small businesses at the same time, by purchasing food and services in and around Salt Lake City before and after the event.” Moutsos continued.

Please remember all attendees are asked to respect those who voluntarily wish to social distance, and or voluntarily wear the protective gear of your choice. Following the peaceful spiritual revival, please support local struggling businesses, by purchasing food and services in and around Salt Lake City.

We ask attendees to also make a charitable donation via our online virtual food drive. A donation link to the UTAH FOOD BANKwill be available at www.utahbusinessrevival.com. The Facebook group page called Utah Business Revival now has almost 13,000 members and is growing daily.
