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!

Crystal Peak at Pat’s Hall – July 6

Thought it would be fun to see how many classes would come out to visit, dance around the tree, and generally have a lot of fun. We’re bringing back the old local 80s band, Crystal Peak, so you can go back in time. This idea started with the Class of ’82, but all classes are invited to attend. And if you’re not a Fredericksburg ex but just want to dance, come on…..the dance is open to everyone. The dance starts 8 pm.

Rudy from Sum Kinda BBQ will be selling BBQ sandwiches, sausage wraps, and chips and queso. Come hungry!

Tickets also available at the Pat’s Hall office Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and at the door.
