The Liberty Opry - October 27, 2007

Twenty six members and four guests enjoyed one truly good time at the Liberty Opry Saturday night, October 27. This outstanding "LEGENDS" performance in front of a close-to-sell-out crowd was a tribute to many of the legends of country western music. The Opry band lived up to their reputation as the best in Texas. The starring performers (and comparable legends) follow: Jabbo Cannon (Jim Reeves), Matt Moody (George Strait), Jay Harvey (Merle Haggard, Ray Price), Jason Nelson (Johnny Cash), Glenodean Thomas (Loretta Lynn), Lee Garner (Marty Robbins), Karla Burris (Patsy Cline, Crystal Gayle), John Ray Baxter (Waylon Jennings) and Jim Cox (Vince Gill). Ray Sowell (beside doing a superb job as emcee), assisted in comedy routines [as did Karla] beside comedian Larry Etheridge, a.k.a. as "Bogger Lee", whose build up and final one-liners had the audience hooting. Betty Pekar, one of Sylvia Slanina's guest, won a white flower arrangement during the raffle at intermission. Our Tex-Mex fajita combo buffet at the nearby Casa Don Boni Mexican Restaurant had a wide offering of delicious sides along with a yummy sopaipilla dessert, leaving us full, satisfied and ready to be entertained at the Opry.
