Saturday will open with special performances by some of our most promising and exceptionally talented youth,“The Future Stars of Tomorrow”, including Coby Carter & 5 Miles West all the way from New Mexico. The evening will continue with Coby Carter & 5 Miles West, followed by Texas Hall of Famer, Bobby Flores and The Yellow Rose Band to close the show.
The Texas Western Swing Showcase has been a vision for Belton resident Nan Ray for the past 20 years. She devoted many long and countless hours to insure that this event live on. It is with this same vision and passion of Ms. Ray for this music that Bobby Flores and Judy Rountree have accepted the honor to carry on this tradition here in Belton. Multi-Instrumentalist Bobby Flores hosts a summer music camp every year in Eastland, Texas which is an extension of his music school, the Bulverde Academy of Music in Bulverde, Texas. It has been the goal of the summer camp to introduce, educate and preserve the Western Swing Music style. We have some outstanding young talent that has attended this camp, all of whom we are extremely proud. It is our honor to present several of them during the Saturday "Stars of Tomorrow Showcase”. They are the future of Western Swing Music and this will be a show you don’t want to miss.
