The Texas Opry Theater welcomes the former Granbury Live Band back to their new home stage in Weatherford on Aug. 17 for The Jukebox Journey Show.
The band is now known as The Amazing Made In Texas Show Time Band, a name given to them by Granbury Live’s creator, the late Tom McRae.
The show will commemorate three decades of American music from the 1950s, ‘60s, ‘70s and even some ‘80s. The show is Aug. 17 at 3 p.m. Online tickets are available at www.texasoprytheater.com or by calling 817-341-1000.
The Jukebox Journey Show is directed and produced by Roger Ramsey, the band’s bass player and leader. Jackson Nightingale will headline the show with “Princess” Alecia Echols, Stephanie Little, Zac Wilson and a surprise new addition to the group, Linda Morgan, a former member of the Granbury Live Theater Group and currently with the Rock Box Theater in New Braunfels.
The Amazing band members include Christian Hutton on lead guitar, Mike Echols, the blue-eyed fiddler, Roger Ramsey on bass, Joe Tom McDonald on keyboards, and Josh Rodgers on drums.
Jackson Nightingale will be an occasional vocal addition to the group. Jackson spent 10 years in Branson co-hosting the “Jennifer In The Morning Show” with Jennifer Wilson. Jackson’s talent, polish and professionalism will be well received by all fans of the former Granbury Live Band.
The Amazing Made In Texas Show Time Band will be the house band that opens for or backs up most of the future shows at the Texas Opry Theater.
Along with Linda Morgan future headliners are the amazing Michael Hix on Oct. 12, to open for “The Real Deal of Country Music” Connie Smith (watch for the return of Carey Dyer to the group). The band will open shows for Legend’s International Tribute Artist Tom Sadge as Neil Diamond on Sept. 14.
