Thursday, Aug. 1
Floresville Event Center
If you have not yet made it to the Floresville Opry, make time to dust off those dancing shoes and enjoy listening and dancing to live classic country music, gathering with friends, and savoring a good meal on Thursday, Aug. 1, from 6-9 p.m. in the Floresville Event Center at 600 S.H. 97 W. in Floresville. Doors open at 5 p.m.
Classic country music will be aplenty with house band “Playin’ To Win,” whose members include Pat Fox, Kenny Penny, Diane Farley, Randy Reinhard, Rodney Smith, Eleanor Shore, and Frutoso Balderas. Featured headliners will be Clifton Jansky, Bill Barrington, Sally Carlson, and Jim Fischer, along with other great performers, such as Julia Weaver, Liz Austin, and Conrad Gonzales.
Singer, guitarist, and songwriter Clifton Jansky was born in Pleasanton, but spent his childhood living in a rural area outside of San Antonio. When he was 17, he completed his first recording after graduating from East Central High School. Jansky spent more than two decades in the music world, starting out as a country performer, recording a number of albums, and winning several music awards, including the CCMA New Artist of the Year. After many years, a few life-changing events found him reaching for the Lord for the first true time in his life. In the summer of 1989, he began a new career in Christian-country music.
Since then, Jansky has been named the 2004 Christian Country Music Entertainer of the Year, with his song “Can You Hear Me Now” nominated for Top Ten Video and Song of the Year at the 2004 Christian Music Awards.
In addition to the Opry’s live music, patrons will enjoy a chicken-fried chicken dinner served by Werner’s Catering for an additional $7, followed by an evening of dancing, door prizes, a silent auction, and concessions.
General admission is $7 per person or $100 for a reserved table that seats 10. Tickets are available at Wilson County News and the Sam Fore Jr. Wilson County Public Library. All proceeds will benefit the Wilson County Historical Society.
