Letter: Loved the music at the Opry
Thursday night, May 3rd, some friends and I attended the Floresville Opry. What a beautiful drive through your city, and what a grand building to house this event.
This event was in honor of National Day of Prayer. The colors were presented and the national anthem sung by Allison Clements. My heart swelled with pride for our country.
I’ve known about the “Playin’ to Win” band for some time, but had never attended a formal performance ... that night was great; the music was fantastic! All the “old-time country music” I grew up with.
Pat Fox, director, has brought together a wonderful and talented group of local and Texas musicians. The band can certainly be compared to the best country- western music groups I have ever heard, and I’ve been around for a looooong time.
I loved the music ... and wish they would make a CD for purchase ... Great music!
I believe the Historical Society of Floresville sponsors this band. They’ve done a great job!! The food was hot and delicious ... in all, it was an inexpensive, but wonderful and fun evening.
Where can you go for dinner, a fun-filled evening of dancing and visiting with good friends for only $14?
Y’all are fantastic! When and where do you play next? I don’t want to miss another performance.
Editor’s Note: Patricia Fox and “Playin’ to Win” will perform at the Floresville Opry’s July 4th Spectacular in the event center. Watch for more on this in coming issues of the Wilson County News.
