Oh! What a Glorious Evening!

The beautiful Old Glory Ranch in Wimberley set the stage for an evening of music, dancing, friends, and fun on April 1025, 2024, when Wimberley Valley Big Band held its annual Rhapsody in Bluebonnets Gala and Fundraiser Concert-Dance.

Approximately 120 ticket-holders and the 28-piece Big Band enjoyed a beautiful hill country evening in the chapel building at Old Glory, spilling out onto the patio where a lively silent auction took place. Revelers shopped, danced, listened, and visited with friends and neighbors, just enjoying a relaxing beautiful evening as they listened to big band and jazz tunes both old and new.

The Big Band’s newest feature, the HoneyTones, entertained the crowd with Chattanooga Choo Choo and Moonlight Serenade. The HoneyTones is a group of 8 local women singers who deliver a great sound featuring tight four-part harmony…a challenging feat!
Soloist Kathy Burnette serenaded throughout the evening with smooth sounding songs such as The Nearness of You and Sway, and our own “crooner” John Greer channeled Sinatra with I’ve Got You Under My Skin. Pat Gillory had fun with the Buble’ version of Feeling Good.

The silent auction featured gifts and gift cards from local restaurants and shops as well as baskets filled with goodies and certificates for exciting experiences. The Wimberley Valley Big Band as a community-based non-profit offering multiple free concerts and dances throughout the year.
The only ticketed event that the Band holds is this once-yearly fundraiser in order to meet essential expenses for bringing the community free concerts all year. The Wimberley Valley has been generous in its support for the Band, and we hope to continue our mission uninterrupted.
