The Floresville Opry not only attracts country music fans from the local area, but the Nov. 7 performance had guests from Sweden, Belgium, and Holland, as well as from all over the South Central Texas area.

“Word gets around fast about good old-fashioned classic country music, wholesome fun, and fellowship, to say nothing of dancing,” said Viola Henke, producer and director.

This was the second anniversary of the Floresville Opry, sponsored by the Wilson County Historical Society and the Wilson County News. Darrell and Mona McCall were the headliners, along with local performers Julia Weaver, Conrad Gonzales, Jim Fischer, and Liz Austin.

Every Floresville Opry features the “Playin’ to Win” country band with Director Pat Fox on bass; Kenny Penny, lead guitar; Diane Farley, rhythm guitar; Randy Reinhard, steel guitar; Rodney Smith, fiddle; Eleanor Shore, keyboard; and Frutoso Balderas on drums. Jim Helmke is emcee.

Special thanks for their tremendous support go to other Floresville Opry sponsors, including Hoelscher’s Furniture & Appliances, flagship sponsor; and Ruffled Feathers, Olivia’s Mexican Restaurant, Friends & Co., Pat Brown Realtors, Bielefeld/Klepac Realtors, Jack’s Café, Smith Propane, Johns Automotive, Trail Riders Restaurant, Marcos & Brenda Estrada, Big M.A.D. Designs, and H-E-B and Walmart, Floresville locations.

The Floresville Opry is held quarterly. The next date is Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014. Featured artists will include Billy Mata, Priscilla Speed, Louis Hohmann, and others to be announced. All proceeds benefit projects of the Wilson County Historical Society.
