Enjoy traditional country music a plenty with Landon Dodd and “The Dancehall Drifters” as they perform at the Summer Country Music Series in the Floresville Event Center Sunday, Aug. 19, from 6-9:30 p.m. The event center is located at 600 S.H. 97 W. in Floresville.

Dance in the cool air conditioning and enjoy dinner from 6-7:30 p.m., including fried fish, French fries, hush puppies, coleslaw, and iced tea for $8. Doors will open at 5 p.m.

Landon’s father bought him his first guitar at 17. He immediately fell in love with the instrument and knew that playing and singing were going to be a permanent part of his life. He spent some time at Abilene Christian and Tarrant County Colleges, studying music, and was in and out of bands for a few years before forming his current band, “The Dancehall Drifters.”

The band has performed at Legends Fest in Fort Worth with acts like Tommy Alverson, Johnny Bush, and Doug Stone. The band also has opened for Gene Watson, Johnny Rodriguez, and Moe Bandy, and was named Academy of Western Artists’ Pure Country Band of the Year in 2009. Landon himself claimed the title of 2011 Male Vocalist of the Year. His first CD, “Call of the Wine,” debuted in January 2010 on Heart of Texas Records.

Landon and band members Wade Branch on steel guitar, Anthony Wilson on fiddle, Joe Paul Clark on drums and vocals, and Carl Garner on bass stay busy keeping traditional country music alive in Texas.
