The Fayette County Country Music Club will host their monthly Opry on Monday, November 19, 2012 at the KC Hall in La Grange. The show starts at 7:30 P.M. and the doors will open at 5:30 P.M. Admission is only $5.00. The Opry is brought to you by the Fayette County Country Music Club, which is dedicated to the promotion of good country music. This month we are featuring: The TWO KINGS OF ACCORDION: Santiago Jimenez, Jr. and Chris Rybak.
Jimenez was born in 1944. He is a singer and accordionist whose father made a significant contribution to the conjunto (accordian based social music of Mexico and South Texas) instrumental style, and upheld the traditions of his father.
Rybak is the young accordion player who has been filling Texas dance hall floors with fans who enjoy his showmanship and his fresh enthusiastic musical style. Chris’s show utilizes his talents on the accordion, along with keyboards, a trumpet and vocals. He has been playing accordion for more than a decade performing for events such as festivals, picnics, weddings, anniversaries, and birthday parties. He plays a variety of music from Czech/German polkas and waltzes, country, and gospel, to his style of toe-tapping Cajun and Tex-Mex music.
