Happy November! The Wimberley Valley Big Band is looking forward to a busy winter-spring
complement of music and fun-filled musical happenings.
Our friends at Kissing Tree Community in San Marcos have invited us to get their festive season
rolling on December 15 with a mid-December Concert/Dance.
Then the Band is back in Wimberley for a string of concert/dances all spring.
The Winter Cheer Concert/Dance* will lift those mid-winter spirits with some new tunes and
vocal selections that will set your toe to tapping. Join us on Saturday, January 27, from 7-9 pm
at the Wimberley VFW Hall on Jacob’s Well Road. This free concert/dance is family-friendly.
The VFW Auxiliary will offer refreshments for sale, and you are welcome to bring your own
coolers. Donations to support the Band are always appreciated.
Who’s ready?! On Fat Tuesday, February 13, from 7-9 pm, come out And
celebrate New Orleans-style at the VFW Hall in Wimberley. Costumes are welcome as are your coolers at the free event which will feature at least one “second-line promenade” and lots of great music. The “second line” in New Orleans is the procession of mourners who followed a New Orleans band led funeral march through the French Quarter respectfully to the funeral, and then turned back towards life in joyful celebration, happy music, and dancing. Many carry parasols or umbrellas while others just signify their joy of life with white handkerchiefs.
On March 7 the Wimberley Valley Big Band will offer a different kind of community event, our
Psalm 150 Concert at the St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Wimberley. We will “…make a
joyful noise unto the Lord…” for a Concert to benefit a program at St. Stephen’s.
On April 6 we return to the gracious Wimberley Valley Winery for another free outdoor Wine
and Unwind Concert/Dance.
And at the end of April, we are pleased to announce the Second Annual Rhapsody in Bluebonnets Concert/Dance at Old Glory Ranch. This concert/dance is the only ticketed event the Wimberley Valley Big Band offers the community, and with it the Band raises its operating costs for the year ahead. Tickets will be on sale at the end of February.
Last year’s Rhapsody in Bluebonnets was truly a glorious evening! Plan to join us.
*(We call these events “concert/dances” because we have listeners in our audiences that just kick
back and just listen and others who express their enjoyment by dancing…we always have a
dance floor area reserved. The WVBB enjoys seeing people enjoy themselves as much as we
enjoy playing our music.)
