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!

Christmas Night Dance at Pat’s Halle – December 25

Many years ago, the Christmas Night Dance was an important event at Pat’s Hall. It was not unusual to have one thousand people in the hall to dance and celebrate with their family and friends. Then there was that horrific fire in 1947, when four people lost their lives.

But Pat’s Hall thinks it is time to bring that dance back. Too much football on TV? Come to Pat’s Hall. Too much family time (be honest)? Come to Pat’s Hall. Too much dessert and eggnog? Come to Pat’s Hall. Bo Porter Band will be on hand to entertain and play some really good dance music.

Genuine musical heritage steeped in classic country traditions sets a vocal standard for Bo Porter. His strong baritone voice has been compared with Marty Robbins, Faron Young, Merle Haggard, and even Johnny Cash. Bo’s unique style makes traditional hits all his own. Classic Country, bits of Blues, Rock n’ Roll, and a lot of heart and soul is what Bo Porter delivers. Award Winning Songwriter and TMA Male Vocalist Nominee.

The dance begins at 7 p.m. and tickets are available at PatsHall.com until 6 p.m. December 25, at the Pat’s Hall office Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and at the door. Children 12 and under are always free.
