WELDON VON MINDEN is a native of La Grange and started his love for country music at the age of nine when he acquired his first musical instrument. He played his first dance when he was 13 and joined the Village Boys band at the age of 15. During the 1950’s, 1960’s and into the 1970’s, he played rhythm and lead guitar and sang at dance halls, country fairs and private events all across Central Texas as a member of the popular band called the Hi Notes. He is still devoted to country music and helps other bands.

DINK & BARNEY are locals with Dink living in Plum and Barney in Rosanky. For many who grew up listening to Rock and Roll and the Rhythm and Blues, they bring back fond memories of endless summer nights, from Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding to Mark Rice, Percy Sledge, along with songs they have written, Rock & Roll and Rhythm & Blues. Music of the 60’s is rare music that makes you want to dance. They are part of a band called Barney Sledge and the Sledgehammers and will relive some of the best years in music history with a little Rock mashed together with the Blues! It is the rare rock down in your soul kind of music. Old lost music is still the best, and our performers bring only the best.
