When the Navy captain Georg Von Trapp writes the convent asking for a governess that can handle his seven mischievous children, Maria is given the job. The Captain's wife is dead, and he is often away, and runs the household as strictly as he does the ships he sails on. The children are unhappy and resentful of the governesses that their father keeps hiring, and have managed to run each of them off one by one. When Maria arrives, she is initially met with the same hostility, but her kindness, understanding, and sense of fun soon draws them to her and brings some much-needed joy into all their lives -- including the Captain's. Eventually he and Maria find themselves falling in love. The romance makes them both start questioning the decisions they have made. Will true love win out?
 Suzy Bogguss
 Nov. 8 at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $22 online and $25 at the door
VIP Boxes are $175
Suzy Bogguss didn’t set out to craft a Merle Haggard tribute record. Some might call that serendipity; she just calls it Lucky. “Merle Haggard is a hell of a storyteller,” says Suzy. “When I hear his songs, I feel like I’m listening in on someone’s life.” On her new album, Lucky, a collection of songs all written by Haggard, Suzy does more than just listen—the CMA, ACM and Grammy Award-winning singer makes the country rebel’s compositions her own, reinterpreting classics like “The Bottle Let Me Down,” “Silver Wings” and “Today I Started Loving You Again” from a female point of view. “Merle is one of the most masculine songwriters I’ve ever heard, and I’ve been watching boys cover his music for years. I just thought, ‘Why couldn’t a girl do this?’” Suzy says.
Turns out, a woman can—especially if that woman is Suzy Bogguss, one of country music’s most pristine and evocative vocalists. With the release of the Illinois native’s 1989 major label debut, Somewhere Between, Suzy quickly became one of the key artists that defined those golden days of ’90s country. She scored a string of Top 10 singles with country radio staples like “Outbound Plane,” “Drive South,” “Hey Cinderella,” “Letting Go” and “Aces,” and her 1991 album of that name was certified platinum. In addition, she scored a trio of gold albums and notched more than 3 million sales.
With Lucky, released on Suzy’s own label Loyal Duchess, the singer comes full circle, returning yet again to her early inspiration, Haggard—Suzy’s Somewhere Between was titled after a Hag cut.
“My very first song on the radio, ‘Somewhere Between,’ was a Merle Haggard song,” says Suzy, going on to explain the title of Lucky, which she produced with her husband, songwriter Doug Crider. “I was sitting at the kitchen table reading the newspaper and the word ‘lucky’ jumped out at me. I said, ‘That’s the title of the album.’ Because I feel lucky that I get to know Merle.”
“He really is the poet of the common man.” Or in this case, an extraordinary woman. Get your tickets today to see Suzy in concert!
Moore Farms

Live, Original Folk Music Concert - 

 Andy Gullahorn

Some people were born to be on stage. Some people were made to have their name in lights. Some people were born incredibly attractive. Andy is not any of those people.Andy was born and raised in the rich musical climate of Austin, TX where he later spent a number of years as a staff writer for publishing companies while playing guitar on the road for singer/songwriter Jill Phillips (who he happened to be married to).Andy has a unique ability to level the playing field between performer and audience by mixing vulnerable personal stories with his self-deprecating humor. He writes songs to "let people know they aren't alone" or "at least let them feel better about their lives by sheer comparison."As a songwriter and performer, Andy has been described as a surgeon who uses laughing gas to deaden the pain before he cuts you open. Whether he is writing about marriage, honesty, faith, community or his friend's lawnmower accident, Andy's songs all come from the same desire. "I really want to write songs that can act as healing agents," Andy says. "Sometimes that healing might come through laughter and sometimes it comes from exploring deep sorrow. I try to be up for whatever it takes."He spends his time playing concerts and house shows across the country, accompanying other artists on the road, and providing his three kids with plenty of stories to tell their counselors in 20 years.Andy was a Kerrville New Folk Winner in 2010 and was a runner-up at the 2009 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival.

Texas Rose Festival History

The beauty and elegance of the Texas Rose Festival
The festival is a celebration of the rose industry that thrives in Tyler. Seven Tyler-area companies process and distribute several million roses each year, making the city deserving of its “Rose Capital” title. About 75% of all roses in the country are handled in Tyler.
The first Tyler Rose Festival was organized by Tyler Garden Club members, local rose growers and the Chamber of Commerce in October 1933 to showcase the importance of the rose industry to Tyler.
The theme of the event was "Festival Fairyland", and included a parade, rose queen's coronation and a rose show. The first festival was a success, and the decision was made to continue the event, and the 1934 festival had as its theme "A Garden in Venice".
The annual event was renamed the Texas Rose Festival during the Texas Centennial in 1936.
Tyler Rose Museum

The museum is run by a nonprofit organization operated with private donations. Its purpose is to showcase the rich history and tradition of Tyler, the rose industry and the Rose Festival.
Opened in 1992, it been visited by over 300,000 people, and is a major tourist attraction in Tyler. The Rose Museum tells the story of the hardships and successes of the rose-growing industry, and the elegance and tradition of the Rose Festival.
The museum features a large collection of photographs, videos, audio, music, newspaper clippings, rose memorabilia, and of course the jeweled festival costumes, which are changed quarterly.

Ray Wylie Hubbard started his journey as a folk singer in his native Oklahoma before falling in with the wild and wooly cosmic/outlaw Texas country scene of the ’70s— in large part by way of penning the immortal “Up Against the Wall (Redneck Mother),” which Jerry Jeff Walker recorded on his seminal 1973 album ¡Viva Terlingua!. Hubbard gigged constantly and recorded sporadically throughout the rest of the ’70s and ’80s, but it wasn’t until he stumbled out of his “honky-tonk fog” and into sobriety that his career as a songwriter’s songwriter began in earnest with 1994’s Loco Gringo’s Lament. He’s moved from strength to strength ever since, recording a handful of acclaimed albums with noted producers Lloyd Maines and Gurf Morlix and cementing his standing as one
of the most respected artists on the modern Americana scene.

Texas Speaker Series presents Dana Bowman
September 18 at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $20
$15 for students and veterans

Dana Bowman has astounded the nation and the world with his drive, determination, and will to succeed. He is a retired Sergeant First Class with the U.S. Army where he was a Special Forces Soldier and a member of the U.S. Army’s elite parachute team, the Golden Knights. Dana Bowman is a double amputee. He lost his legs in an accident during the annual Golden Knights training in Yuma, Arizona, in 1994.
On February 6,1994, Bowman gained worldwide attention when he and his teammate Sgt. Jose Aguillon collided in midair during the team’s annual training. Bowman and Aguillon were practicing a maneuver known as the Diamond Track. The maneuver calls for the jumpers to streak away from each other for about a mile and then turn 180 degrees and fly back toward each other crisscrossing in the sky. Bowman and Aguillon had demonstrated the Diamond Track more than fifty times without a mistake, but this time was different.
Rather than crisscrossing, the two skydivers slammed into each other at a combined speed of 300 miles per hour. Aguillon died instantly. Bowman’s legs were severed from his body, one above the knee and one below the knee. Bowman’s parachute opened on impact. Nine months later, he turned this tragedy into a triumph when he became the first double amputee to re-enlist in the United States Army. Bowman re-enlisted in the United States Army airborne style, skydiving with his commander into the ceremony, making his dream a reality. This achievement is just one example of Bowman’s many successes under adverse circumstances. After Dana’s re-enlistment, he became the U.S. Parachute Team’s lead speaker and recruiting commander. Dana has been fortunate to have the opportunity to let his speeches touch so many from the physically challenged to the able-bodied. He strives to show physically challenged people can still work and excel in today’s society and military. Dana emphasizes the words amputee and uselessness are not synonymous.

Dana has given more than 400 speeches in the last few years and has been featured in magazines such as Sports Illustrated, Reader’s Digest, People and many more. There have also been numerous television programs which focused on Dana and his story. Some of the programs include: Dateline, A Current Affair, Real TV, NBC Person of the Week, Day and Date and Extra.
Dana retired from the United States Army in 1996. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in commercial aviation at the University of North Dakota in May of 2000. Dana spends a great deal of his personal time working with other amputees and disabled or physically challenged people. "Dana inspires other amputees to walk again. His future plans are to continue to speak to the public and fly helicopters.

Mario's Italian Restaurant

They do not have a website, but this is one of our favorite restaurants!
  

Mario's is a local Italian restaurant nestled back in a strip center off of broadway/I-69 just south of Heritage (south of Carmike movie theater).  I can never seem to figure out the hours of operation and we have stopped by on multiple occasions when they were closed.  My wife and I visited once for a date night.  The place looks a lot better on the inside than on the outside, it is your typical Italian restaurant with cozy booths and tables with a nice romantic atmosphere.  They also have live music on Fridays and Saturdays.The spread:  This place has apparently been in operation since 1977, so it is old school Italian-American.  The
appetizers range from bruschetta, fried mozzarella, fried zucchini, fried calamari, etc.  They also serve pizzas with all the regular toppings.  The entrees range from chicken/shrimp primavera, blackened snapper, venetian chicken/veal, chicken/veal marsala/piccata/milanese, etc.  We tried the bruschetta, fried ravioli, pizza, chicken piccata, fettuccine alfredo.The verdict:  I really liked the atmosphere of this place.  It is old school Italian with Frank Sinatra playing in the background.  The waiter was young, but attentive
and provided good service.  The food was also very good, some of the best pizza in town.  My wife and I really liked the fried ravioli.  The pasta were good as well.  Overall, the place had good food, plenty of it and a nice atmosphere.  It isn't cutting edge real Italian cooking, but it is good, reasonable priced stick to your ribs food.  What's not to like?
This blog turned out longer than I thought!!  Look for us again toward the end of September!! Wow it will be FALL then****
                                          And we will be burning fires nightly again
So until next time

For over 150 years Canton, Texas has welcomed Shoppers to the World Famous First Monday Trade Days. FindThatVendor.com is your First Monday "Fone" Book online, helping you find the bargains you're shopping for at Canton Trade Days. Discover the merchants at the Grand Daddy of all Flea Markets, Canton First Monday Trade Days! Known worldwide as that "Canton Flea Market", First Monday Trade Days got it's name in the 1850's as the Circuit Judge came to the County Seat on the First Monday of every month. Swapping and trading just naturally sprang up around the Courthouse Square the weekend before Court on Monday. First Monday was moved to it's present location in 1965 and now up to 7500 vendors gather in Canton, Texas every month to display their wares from "apparel to zithers".

GREAT TEXAS BALLOON RACE AND FESTIVAL

It's a world class event attracting the very best competitive pilots from across the United States and the world.

Considered by many of the pilots that compete at the Great Texas Balloon Race to be the best run event on the circuit, the Great Texas Balloon Race earned Longview the official designation as "The Balloon Capital of Texas" by the Governor of Texas in 1985. 

In 2013 Gregg County was proclaimed "The Balloon Race Capital of Texas" by the 83rd Texas Legislature.

Balloon Flights begin the National event on Tuesday morning with a flight over the City of Longview and continue each morning through Sunday over Kilgore, Longview and East Texas Regional Airport. Launch and landing sites change each day as they are always determined by wind and the weather.

Balloon Glows on Friday and Saturday night entertain crowds with an awesome display of color and excitement. One of the most popular things to do at the event as the public is able to get up close and watch how balloons are inflated and operate.

Live Concerts: Friday, August 1st is Roger Creager and Saturday, August 2nd is Tracy Lawrence. 

Kids Land is a safe restricted area for children that requires a small separate entry fee. Activities and attractions differ from year to year but it is always a fun time.

Vendors display their arts, crafts and other merchandise in booths lined up along an improvised midway.

Food Vendors make sure there is always enough to eat and drink during the day and evening.  Takes place July 29th - August 3rd

Edwin McCain in concert

August 16 at 8 p.m.

Tickets are: $35 rows A-E; $30 rows D-K; 


Balcony rows AA-CC are $25 and DD-EE are $20

VIP Boxes are $200 and seat 4 per box
Edwin McCain’s voice is everywhere.  At any given moment, a radio station is
 playing one of his songs.  An American Idol hopeful is belting out “I’ll Be.”  
A newlywed couple is dancing to “I Could Not Ask for More.” There’s Edwin 
singing the National Anthem before the Atlanta Braves and the Dodgers play for 
the pennant.  Before a NASCAR race at Talladega.  And at the NBA Finals.  
We hear him in over 100 concert halls throughout the country every year, and 
that’s not even counting the performances at the Super Bowl Village and 
fundraisers for Habitat for Humanity, the Wildflower Camp Foundation, 
Kyle Petty’s Victory Junction Gang and so many more. McCain’s innate
 ability to write and perform songs that somehow every listener claims 
as their own has made him one of the most enduring and downright likable
 entertainers of our generation.

The New York Times dubs Edwin the “great American romantic,” and his fans 
do certainly agree but it’s the FUN that brings them back to his concerts every
 single time he comes through town.  Edwin roars through soulful renditions of 
his songs, tosses in irrepressible vintage R&B rhythms and turns his concerts 
into parties.  His between-song-banter is more stand-up than rock star, drawing 
as many laughs as cheers.


“It’s not about chart positions or record sales or anything like that,” insists the
man with 11 albums, a wall of platinum and gold albums that have sold in the
millions, and reams of Top 10, 20 and 40 hits, “it just has to do with people
coming together and sharing a moment, that's it. And that’s all I ever wanted
to do. I just love that moment in the small club and bar where every single
person in there has a moment where it’s silent and they get it and it’s beautiful,
that moment where the music that’s coming off the stage is much more than the
players and much more than the audience and something happens and you’re
sitting there and your hair stands up. That’s it, man. I love it.”

sitting there and your hair stands up. That’s it, man. I love it.”
Opening for Edwin McCain is "Michealis"
 Michaelis is made up of Meagan, Mallory and Madeline—their surname 
doubles as their band name—the group has been winning over audiences throughout its native Texas since youngest member Madeline was only 5 years old. “They’d sneak me through the back door of the honky-tonk and then I had to leave right after the show,” says Madeline.  Now all grown up, the girls spent the past two years collaborating with visionary Nashville producer Dave Brainard (Jerrod Niemann, Brandy Clark)
on their debut album, a collection of songs that marries the traditional country their father played for them while growing up with the ’90s showmanship of artists like 
Garth Brooks, Shania Twain and, another Texas trio, the Dixie Chicks.

With harmonies as tight as their sisterly bond and a sexy, swaying sound all their own, Michaelis is a breath of fresh air in an often stifled and male-heavy musical environment.  “There is no fabrication going on with our songs. It’s very much us and we’re part of their creation. 
Our songs are about love, our faith and how we see the world—and how we wish other
 people would see the world,” says Meagan, 25, who sings lead. Raven-haired Mallory, 
21, rocks the rhythm guitar and, as the heart of the band, lays down the group’s signature
 low harmonies, while 18-year-old Madeline is the trio’s multi-instrumentalist, playing 
lead guitar, mandolin and nearly anything with strings, while providing a near-angelic
 high harmony. “I hope people can admire the love in our family and our relationship when they
 hear our music, because we’re best friends,” Mallory says. “We’d like that to 
speak to people.”

"American as Apple Pie"
July 3 at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $20 adults and $10 for children

Please join us for a celebration "As American as Apple Pie". We will celebrate this patriotic holiday reminiscing with the Tyler Big Band.

The Tyler Big Band has existed, in one form or another, for more than 40 years. It continues today more

musically adept and up-to-date. The Band is made up of 18 members -- 5 saxophones, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, 4 rhythm and a vocalist. 

The TBB is grounded in the musical genre which was usual and abundant in the era in which “big bands” originated, developed, and became the dominant musical force in radio, theaters, movies, dance halls, and eventually, television. TBB’s repertoire is extensive. A wide variety of musical styles includes swing, ballads, Latin, blues, and waltzes.  Most of the tunes are from that “golden age” of Big Bands, and many have been updated so as to reflect the passage of time. You can expect to hear tunes associated with Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Tommy Dorsey, Jimmie Dorsey, and others.
Come and enjoy a special evening of patriotic tunes and a program full of surprises.

We will also have an apple pie baking contest! Anyone you know that can make an awesome apple pie can enter. We will award for "best crust", "best appearance" and "best flavor". The overall winner will get a "Perfect Pastry" class for four with Chef Simon Webster at Sabor a Pasion Estate & Vineyard. The entry fee is $25. Go to www.etso.org for more information on how to enter the contest.
 Winners will be announced at the concert and pie and ice cream for all at the Mainstreet Gallery down the street. Fun for everyone!

Sounds like a fun and Yummy evening!!.
Fireworks this year in Tyler will  be a day late!! So come see the show on July 5th!

Hairspray is a musical with music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Scott Wittman and Shaiman and a book by Mark O'Donnell and Thomas Meehan, based on the 1988 John Waters film Hairspray. The songs include 1960s-style dance music and "downtown" rhythm and blues. In 1962 Baltimore, Maryland, plump teenager Tracy Turnblad's dream is to dance on The Corny Collins Show, a local TV dance program based on the real-life Buddy Deane Show.[1] When Tracy wins a role on the show, she becomes a celebrity overnight, and meets a colorful array of characters, such as Corny Collins (The show's singing host who shares Tracy's liberal political views) and Velma Von Tussle (The villainous producer of the show who does everything in her power to further her daughter's career and destroy Tracy's and Corny's). She then launches a campaign to integrate the show. Hairspray is a social commentary on the injustices of parts of American society in the 1960s.

The Third Annual East Texas Comedy Festival Sets Massive Lineup of Comedy Talent 
 
The Conan O’Brien Show, MADtv, Reno 911, Key and Peele, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and That 70’s Show are just a handful of credits the headliners of the Third Annual East Texas Comedy Festival bring to the stage of Liberty Hall on June 13th and 14th for a weekend of comedy with an edge! 

Friday June 13th will feature Stand-up comedy: 

Local favorite Brandon Davidson will host a night of standup comedy starting at 8 pm and worthy of a Comedy Central Special featuring Daryl Felsberg and headliner Jimmy Pardo from The Conan O’Brien Show. Friday will also feature the winner of "The Funniest Comic in East Texas 2014".

This year we are adding a special late night show, starting at 11pm. This comedy will not be for "the faint at heart" this is the grown folks show......if you like sweet, clean comedy then - stay away from the Liberty starting at 11 p.m. on Friday!

Our Start
Standup Headliner: Jimmy Pardo 
 
Jimmy Pardo spends nearly his entire set interacting with, and making fun of, his audience. Everything he observes or thinks, he immediately scans to find the funny. Jimmy's raucous-but-smart weekly podcast, Never Not Funny, is the No. 2 paid podcast hosted by a comedian, and was voted by iTunes and USA Today as one of the top podcasts of 2006 and 2007. His guest list reads like a Who's Who of comedy. Conan O'Brien, Richard Lewis, Patton Oswalt, and Sarah Silverman have all been guests. 
 




 Jimmy continues to headline at some of America's top comedy clubs and currently works as Conan O'Brien's opening act on Conan, where he warms the studio audience up before the show and he did the same for Conan on The Tonight Show. In addition to providing content for Teamcoco.com and appearing on the show in sketches or as a frequent guest, Jimmy recently filled in as Conan's sidekick for several shows. He has performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. He had his own half-hour special, Comedy Central Presents Jimmy Pardo. He hosted National Lampoon's Funny Money on the Game Show Network, and was the co-host of AMC's Movies at Our House for four seasons. He has hosted episodes of VH1's The Surreal Life and Love Lounge and NBC's Late Friday.







Saturday night we will feature Improv Comedy: 
The night of all things made up will bring a night of improv madness not for the easily offended. Kicking off at 8 pm is Card 53, who just recently added members of Dallas’s Fourth Wall Comedy. Then "Alice and Edward" will get a one-word suggestion to inspire a series of scenes never performed before. Performed and done completely off the cuff exploring characters and relationships much like an improvised sitcom.

Improv Headliner: "Alice and Edward"

Alice & Edward are the middle names of Susan Messing and Frank Caeti. Susan lives in Chicago, Frank lives in Los Angeles. They perform long form improvisation together anytime they are in the same city. 

Frank Caeti, is an alumnus of The Second City Chicago where his credits include: National
Touring Company, two resident company stages (Chicago E.T.C. & Las Vegas), Reverie (a nonverbal sketch comedy show), and Twist Your Dickens at the Kirk Douglas Theater. He can be described as a versatile actor who surprises audiences with his physicality and heartfelt vulnerability. Caeti was a series regular on FOX’s long running sketch show MADtv. Other TV credits include: Key and Peele, Reno 911, NCIS, The Jay Leno Show, and over forty commercials.

  His regional theater credits include: La Jolla Playhouse, Dallas Theater Center, and Laguna Playhouse. Frank is one half of the acclaimed duo, FrankenMatt with former Saturday Night Live writer Matt Craig. He regularly performs in LA at UCB, iO West, and Second City Hollywood.

The Chicago Tribune said of Caeti,
"astonishingly deft at range of characters...a future rock star of comedy."
 Susan Messing is a New Jersey native and graduate of Northwestern University’s Theatre School. She has been an improviser and comedian for over twenty-five years and is one of the most fearless performers in the history of improvisation. She is is an alumna of the iO Theatre, Second City’s Mainstage, and a founding member of Chicago’s infamous Annoyance Theatre.

Susan created and has taught her curriculum at iO and iO West, The Annoyance Theatre, The Second City, and around the country. Susan is an adjunct instructor for DePaul University, The University of Chicago, and The School at Steppenwolf.


Her standup act with her puppet, Jolly, was featured at the HBO/US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, and on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend and NBC’s Late Fridays. Her most impressive bit movie role was as a bad stripper in a halo brace in Let’s Go to Prison! You can see her every Thursday night in her critically acclaimed show, Messing with a Friend, now in its seventh year at The Annoyance Theatre. She has been delighted to participate in the TBS Just For Laughs Festival every year since its Chicago debut.

WHEW!!!! We are thrilled to have these rock stars of comedy right here in Tyler, Texas! This is a do not miss!

Thanks to Jamey Whitley who created and produced the East Texas Comedy Festival - now in it's third year!

Tyler Texas Bed and Breakfast-The Rosevine Inn-Best in East Texas 10 May 2014, 3:00 pm

Innkeeper Rose Vine Inn Bed & Breakfast 
Guess we have been so busy-got behind on the blog post! Sorry about that. Will try to do better!!
Activities abound in Tyler and surrounding areas always. Here we try to feature a few of them-but you know there is plenty to do if you just want to hang out at The Rosevine Inn Bed and Breakfast. Come check it out!
Okay here are some fun things to do and see and do!

May 15 Through  18
Suppose you're an attractive high school girl and you're not only a member of a large and unique family but your father is, in fact, one of the great pioneers of industrial efficiency.
Then suppose he decides, for no apparent reason, to apply his unorthodox methods to you and to the rest of your big family. The results are terribly embarrassing, funny and—it must be admitted—extremely effective! To Anne, however, the chief effect seems to be that of making them seem ridiculous to everyone else at school—especially to the boys!
Dad pushes ahead with better organization for his large and delightful family. He puts up a chart for the young people to initial after completing each household task, uses a rung as an imaginary bathtub to demonstrate how to take a really efficient bath and appoints a utilities officer to levy fines on wasters of electricity. While the situations are often uproarious, there's a serious reason. Dad has a heart condition which he's keeping secret. The children don't understand them.
Anne, the oldest, rebels. Both Dad and she are miserable at the lack of understanding between them. Then in a deft and moving scene, Dad becomes aware of how much Anne has grown up.

"The Voice" start to perform at Liberty Hall on April 18!

Taking a break from his time on the hit show, "The Voice". We are so excited to be able to bring this sneak peek to Tyler and Liberty Hall of local talent Stevie Jo Rosenbalm. Brought to Liberty by Jaguar Artist Promotions and Amy Fish.

Rosenbalm is a Tyler native through and through. Born right here at Trinity Mother Frances and raised in East Texas, Stevie's parents both played in heavy metal bands when he was younger and he always dreamt of making it big in music. His parents may have influenced his love for music, but not the genre: Stevie loves to sing R&B. Music has always been a source of inspiration for him, and he's on "The Voice" to make his parents' dream a reality.
Stevie took the bold step of trying out for "The Voice" in Austin. He said, "I was nervous that day, too. I got a callback. Then I got another callback. There are some hoops you’ve really got to jump through. But I got there and I just couldn’t be more happy with the results.” He got his start in music by playing drums and singing in garage rock bands.“Drums are my first love. I just love rhythm and the drums and all the things you can do with it. That’s what called me to R&B, because when I was singing and playing drums. R&B vocals are packed full of those rhythmic aspects that really intrigue me.”
Competition will remain fierce as the show advances, but Rosenbalm said he’s been blown away by the support and reactions he’s received so far, both from home and abroad.“I’ve been getting so much love and support from social media. And not just social media. When I’m out in town, I’ve had people already asking me for autographs and take pictures. My friends are like, ‘You really deserve this.’ It’s so awesome to get the support of the community. It makes me feel like I’m going in the right direction.”

The Ten Commandments (1956) 

Saturday, April 19 at 1 p.m.
Tickets are $8 online or $10 at the door

To escape the edict of Egypt's Pharoah, Rameses, condemning all newborn Hebrew males, the infant Moses is set adrift on the Nile in a reed basket. Saved by the Pharaoh's daughter Bithiah, he is adopted by her and brought up in the court of her brother, Pharaoh Seti. Moses gains Seti's favor and the love of the throne princess Nefertiti, as well as the hatred of Seti's son, Ramses. When his Hebrew heritage is revealed, Moses is cast out of Egypt, and makes his way across the desert where he marries, has a son and is commanded by God to return to Egypt to free the Hebrews from slavery. In Egypt Moses's fiercest enemy proves to be not Ramses, but someone near to him who can 'harden his heart'.

East Texas Funniest Comic

The Bellamy Brothers
May 2 at 8 p.m.
Tickets are: $35 rows A-E; $30 rows D-K; Balcony rows AA-CC are $25 and DD-EE are $20
VIP BOXES are $225 and seat 4
Doors open at 7 p.m.


The Bellamy Brothers continue to prove that the trail they’ve ridden to fame has been as unique as their music itself—music that is now celebrating 30 years of success.

Their first big break came in the form of the hit, “Spiders & Snakes,” written by David and recorded by Jim Stafford. The song became a smash hit and became the catapult that rocketed the brothers onto the L.A. music scene. The Bellamys officially lifted off the launch pad in 1976 when their single, “Let Your Love Flow,” became an instant smash in both the U.S. and Europe. It stayed on the international charts long enough to build a huge international fan base.

True to their musical roots, their style and their songwriting was moving steadily more towards their raising. By the late ‘70’s The Bellamys emerged on the country charts with another bona fide smash. “If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me),” originally scrawled on a dinner napkin by David, rocketed them to the top of the country charts. It proved to be the first of a string of fourteen #1 singles in the U.S. alone.
Success followed success: “Dancing Cowboys,” “Sugar Daddy,” “You Ain’t Just Whistlin’ Dixie,” “Lovers Live Longer,” “Do You Love As Good As You Look,” “Redneck Girl,” “For All The Wrong Reasons,” “I Love Her Mind,” “I Need More Of You,” “Old Hippie,” “Too Much Is Not Enough,” “Kids Of The Baby Boom,” and “Reggae Cowboy” and “Crazy From The Heart,”…all have lined the corridors of the Bellamy’s musical history and their walls with platinum and gold.
The Bellamy Brothers hold the record in both the Academy of Country Music (ACM) and the Country Music Association Awards (CMA) for the most duo nominations. Numerous Grammy nods have also been directed toward the brothers.

These days when the subject turns to touring, The Bellamys are showing a new generation of country music how it’s done. “We’re old road dogs,” grins Howard when asked about the motivation behind the brothers 200 plus concert dates each year. Adds David: “Our live draw is bigger than it was in the ‘80’s. I think the same people that grew up with us and with our music in the ‘60’s and ‘70’s obviously have raised a whole new generation of Bellamy fans who started toddling to our music. Now they’re turning up at our concerts as college kids, who are really turned on and tuned in to us and our music….it’s a great feeling.” 


 One of my Favorites!

Steel Magnolias (1989)
May 10 at 3 p.m.
Tickets are $8 online and $10 at the door

 Just in time for Mother's Day, Liberty Hall brings you "Steel Magnolias", starring Sally Fields and Julia Roberts. The story revolves around Truvy's Beauty Parlor in a small parish in Louisiana. It is the story of a close-knit circle of friends whose lives are intertwined. As the picture opens, we find Drum Eatenton shooting birds in the trees of his back yard in preparation for his daughter's wedding reception that afternoon. Shortly thereafter, M'Lynn and Shelby (Drum's wife and daughter) depart for Truvy's to get their hair done for the wedding. "Just the sweetest thing," Annelle Depuy Desoto joins Truvy's as the new "glamour technician." While in the chairs, the sour-tempered Ouiser Boudreaux shows up and entertains the assemblage with her barbs. It seems that the only one of the group who truly understands Ouiser is Clairee, who is recently widowed and looking for a diversion. Filled with humor and heartbreak, these "Steel Magnolias" make us laugh and cry as the realities of their lives in tiny Chiquapin Parish unfolds.  Bring your mom and a box of kleenex!!

April 4 at 7:30pm
THE ADDAMS FAMILY is a smash-hit musical comedy that brings the darkly delirious world of Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Grandma, Wednesday, Pugsley, and, of course, Lurch to spooky and spectacular life. “A visually satisfying, rib-tickling, lunatic musical that will entertain you to death!” according to Toronto Post City. This magnificently macabre new musical comedy is created by Jersey Boys authors Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, Drama Desk-winning composer/lyricist Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party), choreographer Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys), and Olivier Award-winning costume and set designers Phelim McDermott & Julian Crouch (Shockheaded Peter) with direction by four-time Tony Award® winner Jerry Zaks. Snap your fingers to the family’s creepy beat! www.theaddamsfamilymusical.com

A plane crashes on a deserted island.
The only survivors are a group of school boys.
They live in a land of bright exotic birds and dark blue seas, but at night their dreams are inhabited by a terrifying beast!
Before long this well behaved group has turned into a bloodthirsty and murderous tribe!
This adaptation of William Golding's compelling story is about a group of very ordinary small boys marooned on a coral island has become a modern classic. At first it seems as though it is all going to be great fun; but the fun before long becomes furious and life on the island turns into a nightmare of panic and death. As ordinary standards of behaviour collapse, the whole world the boys know collapses with them—the world of cricket and homework and adventure stories—and another world is revealed beneath, primitive and terrible.
Lord of the Flies remains as provocative today as when it was first published in 1954, igniting passionate debate with its startling, brutal portrait of human nature.
