BRANSON, Mo. --The Floresville Opry’s house band, “Playin’ to Win” country band, led by Patricia Fox, performed in the first-ever “OpryMania” May 20 in the Branson Star Theatre.

The band was invited by OpryMania creator Bobby Reed of Lake Jackson, to join the performance in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri. Also featured in OpryMania this year were bands from Pattonsburg and Oregon, Mo., and Winston, Ga. The Floresville Opry house band received high praise, much attention, and many compliments on their performance with their true country and western music style, sound, and vocals. Featured vocalists were Conrad Gonzales, Bob Appel, Bill Barrington, Kenny Penny, Frutoso Balderas, and Sally Carlson.

Featured in the Celebrity Show May 19 were special guest singers Chrissy Martinez from Lake Jackson, Texas, and Bob Appel from Austin. They were joined by Branson Star celebrities Barbara Fairchild, Doug Gabriel, Jim Owen, and Rodney Dillard.

A charter bus took Floresville Opry fans from South Texas to Branson. Joining coordinator Viola Henke May 18-22 were Floresville Opry regulars Billy and Ilene Albert, Bob Appel, Frutoso and Susan Balderas, Bill and Shannon Barrington, Florence Baumann, Armin and Darlene Beutnagel, Sally Carlson, Steve Chase, Al and Lorene Chilek, Edna Mae Fannin, Pat Fox, David and Shirley Frazier, Jane Garcia, Ralph and Mary Ann Gerhardt, Charley and Ginny Glowka, Conrad Gonzales, Alma Rucker, Shelby and Beverly Henke, Jim and Karen Henke, Pat Henke, Otto and Viola Henke, Robert and Shirley Hoover, Kathy Maddox, Lauren Mills, Lester and Mary Jane Moczygemba, Florence Neubauer, LaJuana Newnam-Leus, Rose Lee Ortega, Alene Pawelek, Kenny Penny, Brenda Pfeil, Carroll and Janet Retzloff, Rose Ann Sczech, Raymond Skorupa, Richard and Louise Stadler, George and Lucy Sturm, Mary Lou Sanchez, Robert and Ruth Vontur, Donna Witten, Melba Wolff, and Georgia Zidek.

Plan now to attend the next Floresville Opry Thursday, Aug. 7, as the house band performs a “Salute to Branson” -- a repeat of its Branson performance!

The Floresville Opry takes place on the first Thursday of each quarter of the year, beginning in February. Performances are held in the Floresville Event Center.
