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".

This will be a unique exhibit which will be enjoyable for all ages.

Hondo's on Main LIVE with Houston Marchman
The best MUSIC in the Texas Hill Country is LIVE at Hondo's on Main. And, you can also enjoy the BEST Gourmet burger in town, plus other delicious offerings from Chef David's EXTREME Texas Cuisine!
Tonight music by Houston Marchman. The driving force behind Houston Marchman is his ability to translate real life into music. Marchman spent his formative years soaking up the sights and sounds of America’s heartland. Marchman received his first guitar at the age of 5. Influenced by his musical grandfather and poetic grandmother, he wrote his first song at the age of 13. Today he continues to produce music both poetically humble and musically complex, creating music that honestly and vividly portrays life mixing the sounds of country, Texas folk, polka, conjunto and blues.

Described as a charming and passionate person, Marchman is filled with humorous accounts and boundless energy. He connects with audiences wherever he plays. His fans love the honesty of his music as well as his smoky character-filled voice. Marchman explains his philosophy of writing this way: "The point is not to be creative but to be accurate in your experience and therefore you will be creative. Don't write what you think listeners want to hear, write what you know." Mark Mundy of KNON in Dallas observes, "It's this type of writing that is drawing attention to Marchman and his music. It's refreshing to hear a singer/songwriter who can paint a picture and make you feel like you are there."

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.

Annual Heritage Show at the Gillespie County Fair!
The HCAT & EC Annual Heritage Show is held in conjunction with the Gillespie County Fair.

August 20-22 2015.

This show provides visitors a take back approach to the good ol’ days. Many activities such as agricultural displays, tractor displays, engine displays, antique tractor pulls, and a working blacksmith shop are open for your viewing pleasure.

Our replica of a 1920’s farm house is open for viewing.

Note: The Gillespie County Fair is the oldest, continuous county fair in Texas bringing you the best in old-fashioned fun. Throughout the year we also participate in many parades and festivals that are held throughout the Hill Country. We are always willing to help out locally with other organizations or groups that also promote our local agricultural history. Recently, members of the Club participated in the 2013 Fredericksburg Easter Fires Pageant, Pioneer Museum’s Founder’s Day, and the 2014 Night in Old Fredericksburg celebration.

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.

Already in 2012 Luckenbach has hosted: Roger Creager, The Gourds, Billy Joe Shaver, Max Stalling, Micky and the Motorcars with Jason Eady, The Tejas Brothers, Hal Ketchum, Rosie Flores, Larry Joe Taylor, Deryl Dodd, Blacktop Gypsy, WC Clark and Ray Benson, Gary P. Nunn, Ruby Jane,  Doug Moreland, Thomas Michael Riley, Will Owen Gage, Charlie Robison and Robyn Ludwick, Chris Berardo, Clay McClinton... just to name a few! AND, still to come in 2012... HOLD ON!

So, TREAT yourself to some MAGIC! Everybody's WELCOME! Your HEART, your SOUL will never forget!

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.

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.
