Blake Anthony, Ray Crittenden, Bud Whittington, Buddy White, Johnny Marek and Al Nelson, will join the Jamboree Band tonight for an evening of country music’s favorite tunes. The Refugio County Jamboree will kick off at 7:30 p.m. at the Refugio Community Center.

Anthony has dedicated a big chunk of his music energy into supporting a faith-based addiction rehab center, known as The Victory Home.

It has been said “when Blake steps in front of an audience, his genuine and deeply seated desire to bring a smile to every person’s heart is heard louder than the music or the words to his songs,” said Rick Faircloth, show organizer.

Bud Whittington is a former regular of the Jamboree.

“We are glad to have him return for a great appearance,” said Faircloth. “He is a real pro with a pure-country style.”

Al Nelson is a very good drummer and singer who can sing the Ray Price style as well as the Big Band style.

“Not only is he a good singer, he is a good drummer,” Faircloth said.

A talented artist, Marek has been playing in local bands for years.

“He is a great drummer and he has a wonderful voice that will impress the audience,” Faircloth said.

The Jamboree show is held the fourth Thursday of each month at the Refugio Community Center from 7:30 to approximately 10 p.m. Admission remains at $4 per person.
