Bobby Flores and the “Yellow Rose Band” will perform the best of traditional country and western swing music. Bobby, a 2003 Grammy award winner, has recorded and performed on stage with the legendary Ray Price as well as Willie Nelson, Johnny Bush, and Doug Sahm. He has performed at the Grand Ole Opry, The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and numerous Willie Nelson 4th of July picnics, to name a few. Bobby has also had the honor of being an inductee into the “Texas Western Swing Hall of Fame.” He has been featured on more than 400 albums, CDs, and singles, including performances on major labels. He also produces albums on a regular basis in his state-of-the-art recording studio in San Antonio.

Northern California native Bob Appel, with unlikely roots for a country singer, was exposed to the neo-traditional country sounds of Alan Jackson, Randy Travis, George Strait, Dwight Yoakam, and Aaron Tippin as a teen. It was through the allusions in the lyrics and sound of these singers that Bob Appel found the music of icons like Hank Williams, Faron Young, Ray Price, Patsy Cline, and others. Bob immersed himself in live music in 2010.

Julia Weaver of Floresville is the daughter of James and Kristen Weaver and the granddaughter of Al and Elaine Kolodziej. She is a member of Drama Kids and has performed and sung at several venues, including San Antonio Silver Stars, Spurs, and Rampage games, the Miss La Vernia Pageant, the First Baptist Church of Floresville, and “Wilson County’s Got Talent.” Julia loves to perform, but most importantly, she loves life and enjoys playing with her two brothers, James Paul and Jude.

Krista Morgan got her start singing in church and at community events as a child. Her journey to share music has taken her from humble small-town beginnings to venues on three continents. Her CD, “By Way of Love,” is a collection of inspirational songs and is available on iTunes. Krista, a wife and proud mother of four, is a resident of Wilson County and a graduate of Karnes City High School and Texas A&M University.

The Opry will also feature house band “Playin’ to Win,” Diane Farley, Kenny Penny, Frutoso Balderas, Conrad Gonzales, and Jim Helmke.

General admission tickets are $10 each and may be purchased at the Wilson County News or the Sam Fore Jr. Wilson County Public Library. Reserved tables that seat 10 are also available for $120. All proceeds benefit the community through the Wilson County Historical Society.

For more information or to reserve a table, call Viola Henke at 830-393-6512.
