Rock Box Theater Presents a Buddy Holly Tribute Show - August 12th at 7pm
Buddy Holly was an American musician and singer-songwriter, often considered one of the most important Artists of Rock and Roll in the mid-1950s. Holly was described by critic Bruce Eder as "the single most influential creative force in early rock and roll. This show features all the best of Buddy Holly! Don't miss the chance to reminisce and hear the songs that laid the foundation for the for an emerging new sound in American MUSIC History… ROCK N ROLL!
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame included Holly among its first class in 1986. On its entry, the Hall of Fame remarked the large amount of material he produced during a short career, and declared that it "made a major and lasting impact on popular music". It called him an "innovator" for writing his own material, his experimentation with double tracking and the use of orchestration; while it also added that he "pioneered and popularized the now-standard" use of two guitars, bass and drums by rock bands.[56] The Songwriters Hall of Fame also inducted Holly in 1986, and stated that his contributions "changed the face of Rock 'n Roll".

The Bob Hope Traveling Exhibit at the Nimitz Museum
15 MAY 2015 - 15 SEPTEMBER 2015

A very special exhibit about the life of Bob Hope will visit the Nimitz Museum from May 15, 2015 until September 15, 2015. The Bob and Delores Hope Foundation, along with the World Golf Hall of Fame, have produced a 2,000 square foot traveling exhibit about Bob Hope and his varied life, including his many USO trips to the Pacific. This exhibit includes more than 700 vintage photos, seven videos, more than 170 artifacts, an audio tour and a special educational program to enable children to understand better what they are viewing.


Bob Hope was a great admirer of Admiral Chester Nimitz and a strong supporter of the Admiral Nimitz Foundation and Nimitz Museum. He came to Fredericksburg in 1976 to attend a fundraiser to save the old Nimitz Hotel. He also served as an Honorary Trustee until his death.


This will be a unique exhibit which will be enjoyable for all ages. The Museum and Foundation are especially honored to be able to present this exhibit since only 16 facilities have been selected to host this rare and fascinating exhibit. Additional information will be available on the Museum's website and in the next issue of the newsletter.

Live Music tonight by Natalie Rose

Natalie Rose clearly respects the heritage of country music, while striving to be a big part of its future. One listen to her new EP “Promise Me Beautiful”, produced by Ray Benson at Bismeaux Studio in Austin TX, will be proof of that. With the singles “Shivers” and “Lonely Home” charting high already, she is fast becoming known as the most promising new country singer in a long while.

That would be good enough for most, but not for an artist with the experience, ability, and determination of Natalie Rose.

The Bob Hope Traveling Exhibit at the Nimitz Museum
15 MAY 2015 - 15 SEPTEMBER 2015

A very special exhibit about the life of Bob Hope will visit the Nimitz Museum from May 15, 2015 until September 15, 2015. The Bob and Delores Hope Foundation, along with the World Golf Hall of Fame, have produced a 2,000 square foot traveling exhibit about Bob Hope and his varied life, including his many USO trips to the Pacific. This exhibit includes more than 700 vintage photos, seven videos, more than 170 artifacts, an audio tour and a special educational program to enable children to understand better what they are viewing.


Bob Hope was a great admirer of Admiral Chester Nimitz and a strong supporter of the Admiral Nimitz Foundation and Nimitz Museum. He came to Fredericksburg in 1976 to attend a fundraiser to save the old Nimitz Hotel. He also served as an Honorary Trustee until his death.


This will be a unique exhibit which will be enjoyable for all ages. The Museum and Foundation are especially honored to be able to present this exhibit since only 16 facilities have been selected to host this rare and fascinating exhibit. Additional information will be available on the Museum's website and in the next issue of the newsletter.

This exhibit is free to the public. A museum ticket is not needed.

Directions to Luckenbach from Fredericksburg:

Take Hwy 290 (Main St.) east for approximately 6 miles - toward Austin. Take a right on RR1376 (KOA Kampgrounds and Stagecoach Stop Shell Gas Station). Continue for 4.6 miles and take a right onto the Luckenbach Town Loop... just before the South Grape Creek Bridge.

HELPFUL HINTS:  When driving on RR 1376 DO NOT turn right onto the “Luckenbach-Cain City” Road – keep going. You will pass the large Feed Mill (Behrends Feed/”Uptown” Luckenbach) on your left. The next two rights after you pass Grapetown Road will be Luckenbach Town Loop. If you cross the South Grape Creek bridge you’ve gone too far.

10 Best Wine Travel Destinations 2014
Wine Enthusiast Magazine

Wine Enthusiast named the Texas Hill Country, USA, NUMBER THREE on their list of the "10 Best Wine Travel Destinations 2014"!
"It’s still a sea of cowboy hats and pickup trucks, a place where you can sip award-winning wines in a landscape dotted with as many cacti as vines. Visitors may flock to Hill Country to sip wine, but they end up drinking in the romance of the Old West, too. - Alexis Korman

Texas Hill Country
By John Graves and Wyman Meinzer

Two of Texas' most respected artists join their talents to create an unsurpassed portrait of the Texas Hill Country. "Together, John Graves and Wyman Meinzer once again demonstrate that they  are the foremost artists of the Texas landscape. The portrait they create in images and words is as close as you can come to the heart of the Hill Country without being there." www.utexas.edu

Sherman's Travel
5 Eco Friendly Wineries

Pedernales Cellars, Texas Composting, recycling, and natural pest management is just the starting point for Pedernales Cellars. By building underground, this Texas Hill Country winery takes advantage of the area’s natural limestone to provide a cool and steady environment for case storage, slashing the facility’s energy consumption in half. Removal of invasive plant species and cedar overgrowth from the property has also led to the reemergence of previously lost seeps and springs. An added bonus? The tasting room features local and sustainable products like Bella Vista Ranch’s olive oils and t-shirts made from renewable bamboo fibers.
