Country Music Monday Features Four
Four great musicians will share the spotlight of The Rotary Club of Giddings Country Music Monday on June 7 at 7:30 p.m. in the new Giddings High School Cafetorium. From the voice of an accomplished teen to that of mature performers, trained from Nashville to Los Angeles, these performers will thrill the audience with their talents of music. Ed Gary, Mary Sarah, Savannah Berry, and Moses Rangel are names, voices and guitarists you will remember for their superb performance at Rotary’s Country Music Monday.
Ed Gary, the son of a minister, grew up in the music melting pot of Memphis, Tennessee. Both sides of his family were singers and musicians so it was only natural that Ed would follow the family traditions. Beginning at age three singing in his father’s church and polishing a country music career in Nashville, this singer/guitarist has a long list of accomplishments. He has opened shows for the best in show business as Ernest Tubb, Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, Roy Acuff, Barbara Mandrell and many other well known, top of the list performers. He has hosted his own TV show, been the featured star on National TV and Radio productions, had number one hits and CD’s and even had parts in prominent movies. Because of his love for music, he is still singing and playing bass in The Ed Gary Band plus single and duo shows, getting back into movie making and traveling with the American Music Legend’s Tour.
Mary Sarah is a 14 year old singer/songwriter/entertainer residing in Houston. She began her music career at the age of eight, was the featured soloist and ensemble performer for the KidzBop Kid on a 40-city World Tour and has performed at numerous events. Her voice training has been with Houston area voice teachers and with The Singer’s Workshop in Los Angeles. Her credits include performances in the Fort Bend Theater, Houston’ Best New Talent, local and regional Opry’s City-wide fund raising events and independent film and video projects. She is an energetic young lady with a passion for life, family and performing—regardless of her audience.
Savannah Berry is a gifted young country singer with an unmistakable style and authentic sound. She has performed at venues at the Star of Texas Rodeo Austin, Pasadena Strawberry Festival, Nashville Palace, John A’s and Opry shows all across South Texas. She has been a featured performer on “Nashville Spotlight,” Daystar Network and several other TV shows. She loves to sing and is comfortable on stage because she loves to perform. Whether the group is a small or large crowd, she delivers powerful and moving vocals that lets the listener connect with both the song and her interpretation of the music.
It is said that every person has a least one gift from God. Moses Rangel discovered his gift, that of his voice. Some fifteen years ago, he caught the eye of an employee in a music store where he was purchasing a guitar. The employee’s request was, “Sing Elvis’ Love Me Tender.” With that a guitar in hand and confidence in his singing ability, he began a musical career. Growing up in the Houston area, he was familiar with the country western arena, and with artists such as Marty Robbins, Conway Twitty, Merle Haggard, Ray Price and other notables as inspiration, he soon became a request at parties, talent shows, and gigs at restaurants. With his successful CD, which stayed on the Nashville Tracker Chart for fifteen weeks, he became more widely known. His wide vocal range and variety of music has afforded him nominations and accolades as a musical artist. He has been nominated as New Male Vocalist and Entertainer of the Year and has become a permanent member of the nationally syndicated show, “Live at the Liberty Theater”. He continues to use his gift from God, his strong spirit and musical aspirations to sing to and entertain his audiences.
In addition to the four special artists, the Monday show will also feature Sally Carlson, Perry Pace and the regular Country Music Monday Band. Ample parking and assistance in entering the new Giddings High School building will add to your pleasure of the evening. Admission only $3.00.
