Boogie Back to Bastrop, Edge Up to Ennis,
Hunker Down in Houston!
Rain or shine, the folks in Bastrop plan to dance Friday and Saturday at the Boogie Back to Bastrop Western Swing Festival. Friday bands feature Frank Cavitt & The Honky Tonk Doctors and Jeff Woolsey & The Dancehall Kings. Bands on Saturday are Doug Boggs & The Cowboy Jazz Band and the Rocky King Band. Weather permitting, Texas Polka News will be there with something special for all you single guys out there - a free drink ticket and a raffle ticket for several chances to win a Bass Pro gift card. Also, get a free drink ticket when you subscribe or renew your subscription to the Texas Polka News.
Big event in Ennis this weekend. Jodie Mikula Orchestra will celebrate 50 Years of Music & Memories at Sokol Hall on Saturday beginning with a reception at 3 pm and dance at 6 pm. The Moravians will get the party started Friday night in the Sokol Clubroom at 7 pm.
The KC Hall on E Whitney Dr in Houston is the site of the annual Summer Fling on Saturday night with Red Ravens providing the music. If you don't already have your tickets, dinner tickets for $10 and dance tickets for $10 will be available at the door. Doors open at 4 pm.
Of course, Hurricane Harvey may have something to say about your travel plans. Be sure to call the venues before you head out.
