Floresville Opry returns to Event Center May 3
It promises to be an evening full of nostalgic memories, beautiful voices, great friends, and let’s not forget the dancing! Back by popular demand, the Floresville Opry will grace the Floresville Event Center with an endless lineup of musical entertainment Thursday, May 3, from 6-9:30 p.m. Proceeds will benefit the Wilson County Historical Society.
Anyone who missed the November 2011 Opry will not want to let it get by again. The evening promises talent such as Del Kubena singing “Have I Told You Lately That I Love You,” Mary Sue and Johnny Collins performing “I Fall to Pieces,” Martha Anne Duran singing “Honky Tonk Angel,” and so many more.
Local singer Rich Orr, who will perform “It’s Four in the Morning” and more, discovered his passion for music at the young age of 5, with the help of his Granny Artie, and by the time he was 13, he had his own band, “The Ghost Riders.” After years of playing with well-known artists, even being offered a chance to go to Nashville, Rich chose to raise his family. But at family gatherings, you’ll find him and his wife Dora breaking out the old guitar to “pick and grin” as they sit on the porch.
Countless other local talent, such as house band “Playin’ to Win,” Karlene Fey, Dave Demeny, Allison Clements, and Diane Farley, will be on hand to provide classical country music. Attendees will not want the night to end.
General admission tickets are $7, and can be purchased at the Wilson County Public Library or any Historical Society member. Reserved tables on the dance floor, which seat 10, are available for $100 at Wilson County News in Floresville.
