The Buddy Holly Center’s annual Summer Showcase Concert Series continues Thursday, May 25 with John Sprott Blues Band!
The John Sprott Blues Band was formed about five years ago, and for the last two years advanced to the semifinals in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee. The members consist of John Sprott, guitar and vocals, JT Paz, drums, Sean Frankhouser, bass, and Ron Riley, harmonica. Their recently released CD, “That Was Where It All Went Wrong,” was chosen to represent the Greater West Texas Blues Society last year. They play gritty Chicago-style blues with a powerful Texas accent.
Concerts are every Thursday evening from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Meadows Courtyard, May 18 – August 17. Texas Mac Shack food truck and beverage services will be on site during Showcase hours. Admission is FREE! Seating for this event is available on a first come, first serve basis. No reservations will be accommodated for this event. Outside food, beverages, chairs, picnic blankets, and like items will NOT be permitted inside the gates.
In addition to viewing the concerts, guests are encouraged to walk the Buddy Holly exhibitions and the Fine Arts Gallery during Summer Showcase hours with FREE admission.
