Country Music Monday

Country Music Monday offers your Labor Day evening some great Country Music with Dixie Trahan, Chris Rybak, Jimmy Graham, Paul Schlesinger and the regular Country Music Monday backup band. The evening’s entertainment is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Giddings and staged at the new Giddings High School Cafetorium located on Highway 77, one mile north of Downtown Giddings. Show time is 7:30 p.m. with admission $3 for adults and children under 12 at no charge.

Chris Rybak has what it takes to entertain audiences. He has an arousing charisma that comes from his strong Czech Heritage. He has performed all across the state of Texas and beyond. This accordion cowboy has made numerous recordings, enchanted audiences on cruise lines, played at numerous festivals, including the German Wurstfest, the Renaissance Festival, and entertained audiences in Germany, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and more. He has received commendation from TEXAS MONTHLY and won top honors in his performances. His digital accordion and nimble fingers makes his German-Bohemian music come alive.

Paul Schlesigner is a professional fiddle player, singer, voiceover artist and actor living in Taylor, Texas. His career path began while studying at the University of Texas where he became immersed in the world of Texas Swing and Honky-tonk Music.

Performing for crowds of people proved to be the more exciting thing in his life and with his fiddle, vocal and rhythm guitar skills, he plays regularly with groups like The Knights of Texas Swing, Texas Pioneers, the Stardusters and Joe Boyd Reynolds’ Lee County Cowboys.

Paul is a strong fiddle player and is sought after by many prestigious groups for his sense of playing style, knowledge of songs and clean vocals. His list of venues from Central Texas and beyond is most impressive.

Dixie Trahan is a Texas transplant, having moved here from Kansas at an early age. Her answer to the “call of the road” has led her everywhere from Texas to Canada and back again. She is making a noticeable impression in the Texas music scene, has teamed up with some of Texas’ finest musicians and brings her audience a musical experience you will enjoy.

Jimmy Graham is making a comeback in Texas Country Music, having decided that this is what makes life good. Coming from the Austin area and teaming with well known musicians, he shares with the Labor Day audience the best of Country Music.

The four outstanding country music artists scheduled for the September 5, 2010 performance plus the regular Country Music Monday Band will be a special treat for all attending. Food is available, parking assistance is by hospitable Rotarians and the new High School facilities are the finest.
