Great classic Country music is still alive. Country music not only has roots in Tennessee but right here in Texas. The state of Texas has produced more country music artists than any other state. If you’re ready for some good ole “Country Music” the Palestine Civic Center is the place to be Saturday night October 15th. The Palestine Dogwood Jamboree will present “Country Gold”. The show in October will feature the “Hall Brothers” from Houston, Texas. “This quartet of instrumentalists and singers from Houston will charm the audience with their ability to entertain those present, from the youngest to the oldest. They have performed all over the country and we are fortunate to have them here in Palestine for this one night performance”, said Dan Manuel producer of the Jamboree. The Hall Brothers sing songs by the Statler Brothers, Oak Ridge Boys and Gatlin Brothers. Also appearing on stage that night will be “His Harmony” from Rockwell, Texas. They are a gospel group and the audience is sure to enjoy their performance. They recently starred in Branson, Mo. Joe Hancock, Neil Hall, Hal Roper, Shelia Weaver, George Lester, Sissy Perry and Manuel will all be performing that evening. Along with the “Hall Brothers” and “His Harmony”, three young aspiring talented young people (who will be selected in preliminary competition) will compete for the Dogwood Jamboree Talent Search for October and the winner will advance to the finals on Dec. 3rd of this year. “These young people along with others are talented and we are happy to have them perform on the show,” said Manuel”. “Over the years since we started the Talent competition portion of the show, some one hundred and fifty young people have performed on the stage of the Jamboree and have advanced to bigger venues. Auditions for the October show will be held on October 8th. Those wishing to audition can call 903-729-5611 or 903-729-7080. Those auditioning for the talent search contest must be eighteen years or younger. There is no entry fee for auditioning.
“This show is going to be a great venue and we have a lot of folks coming into Palestine for this show” said Manuel. “Several advanced tickets have already been sold”. It is amazing how many people come from numerous metropolitan areas like Shreveport, Houston, Dallas and other cities in the state” said Manuel. “The last show in August attracted many new people from as far away as Arkansas, Tennessee, Louisiana and in Texas cities as far away as Amarillo and Corpus Christi. It was a great show and we believe that this show will be equally attended and as entertaining”. said Manuel
If you are looking for a good time and great Classic country music, this is the place to be on Saturday night October 15th .

Those competing on the show that night will be selected by a panel of three judges and audience vote. Local artists will take the stage with those from other cities all over the state of Texas.

The DOGWOOD JAMBOREE is a Branson style Country Music Show filled with family fun, laughter and great classic country music from some of the best artists anywhere. You will be thrilled as you recall some of the golden hits in country music being performed live on stage. Our comedians always provide great comic relief. Those who often attend the show on tour buses from all over the country say it is one of the best country music shows they have experienced and that it equals performances in Branson, MO. These folk often make return visits to our city as we provide a "New Show" each time. Bring your "youngest of the young and the oldest of the old and they will never be embarrassed." Make plans to be with us for our next performance.
