Kick-A-Boot Band at Pat’s Hall – June 23

WE’LL BE DANCING IN THE AIR-CONDITIONED HALL. TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR.

The Kick-A-Boot Band came about in the summer of 2007, when the regular band at the VFW Hall in Fredericksburg wanted to take the summer off. So Dora Lee Sewell managed to get a band together and they still play today. The band plays good old country classic dance music from artists such as Ray Price, Ernest Tubb, Kitty Wells, Hank Thompson, Loretta Lynn, and many more. Members of the band are Gordon Dowdy (steel guitar and vocals), Kenneth Terry (fiddle), Andrew Neilsen (bass and vocals) and Mark Luedecke (drums).

Dora Lee began singing as a member of the Crenwelge Sisters in the early 50s. After a hiatus of many years, Dora Lee married Rip Sewell and told him stories about singing. They were at London Hall when Sewell asked the band if his wife could sit in. She was a success and performs in Opry shows in Mason and Llano.

If you like the CLASSIC country music, come on out to Pat’s Hall at 2:30 pm!

Jody Nix and the Texas Cowboys at Pat’s Hall – June 27

Jody Nix and his band are looking forward to playing once again at Pat’s Hall. Jody really, really wants to play in the pavilion (he asked us to book him in July so his chances would be better). He’s heard about playing there from Johnny Bush, Darrell McCall, and the many other bands that have played in the pavilion over the years. But we won’t be brokenhearted if we have to move inside because of some good ol’ rain. So come rain or shine, make plans to dance to Jody and the Texas Cowboys! $15 per person. Doors open at 7 p.m., dance begins at 8 p.m.
