Andrew and Kate Kirby, are a light acoustic duo with fresh and light, original melodies and recognizable tunes about life experiences.

Dallas Holm

March 25 @ 7:30 pm

Saturday, March 25, 2017 — 7:30 PM

Tickets: $10 each, (kids 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult), Concessions available.


I started out livin’ for Jesus many years ago

He gave me His love and I gave Him my heart and my soul
Some folks said that I’d never make it
But I guess that they must’ve been wrong
Cause He’s still got control of my life and I’m still goin’ strong

Those lines from the song, The Long Ride, probably best describe the journey and ministry of Dallas Holm.

Many refer to this legendary Christian artist as a pioneer or forerunner. Holm says, “I became a Christian in 1965 and my life was radically and eternally transformed. My music became the means whereby I could express the dynamics of that transformation and share the reality of Christ with others. Through God’s grace, I’ve been part of the Christian music ministry for a long time.”

Music

Dallas has earned his influence in today’s Christian music throughout more than 45 years of writing, singing and ministry in some 4,000 concerts in every state in the USA as well as many countries abroad. His 38 recording have garnered gold records, multiple Dove awards, Grammy nominations, number one songs, and countless accolades. During his travels, Dallas also speaks and teaches what God has taught him in his journey.

Holm’s creativity and diversity offer everything from inspirational to blues, from country to reggae. Whatever the style, it all points to Christ and the Cross. Songs like Rise Again, I Saw the Lord, Here We Are and Before Your Throne remind us that it’s all about Jesus. Holm’s songs focus on His life, His death and resurrection and His desire for intimate relationship with us.

Artists such as Steven Curtis Chapman, Twila Paris and Greg Long of Avalon all make reference to Holm’s significant impact on their lives and ministries. Holm can be seen on several of the Bill Gaither Homecoming videos. On one video Gaither introduces Dallas by saying, “This is one of the nicest guys in our entire industry.” This broad appeal and respect by peers has undoubtedly been one of the reasons for Holm’s amazing longevity and relevance.

Stratoblasters

April 22 @ 7:30 pm

A real favorite, the ultimate Texas Blues Southern Rock band returns to the Big Sandy Music Hall.

Purchase Tickets to this show for only $20.00 ea


In September of 1986, the Stratoblasters performed their very first set at Redux in Dallas, Texas. It should be mentioned that as the namesake goes, this was not absolutely correct. Bugs Henderson had actually coined the moniker by naming his band Bugs Henderson and the Stratoblasters some time previously. After guitarists Jimmy Wallace and Mike (Junior Clark) left, he renamed the group Bugs Henderson and The Shuffle Kings. Bugs, very graciously, consented to allow Jimmy and company to retain the Stratoblasters name as they would be carrying on the tradition of the three guitar entity.

The Hubbard Family Gospel Band

Tickets $10 – kids 12 and under free when accompanied by an adult. Concessions Available.


The Hubbard Family is a family of five and a five piece live gospel band. For more than a decade, Jerry & Debbie Hubbard and their three daughters Emmylou, Lorianne, and Jeri have traveled throughout their home state of Texas, across the USA, and around the world lifting up the Name of Jesus with Christ-centered lyrics and a fresh sound that crosses several genres. This has led to many different descriptions of their sound through the years; they have been classified as everything from “Christian country” and “bluegrass gospel” to “indie gospel” and “gospel fusion”. Each family member contributes vocally and instrumentally to the band which makes for an exciting live music experience. Much of their repertoire is comprised of heartfelt original songs inspired by the work God has done in their lives individually and as a family. The Bible says believers overcome by the blood of The Lamb and by the word of their testimony. The music of the Hubbard Family is deeply personal and testimony-driven. “We look at our music as an outlet to tell who we were, where we’ve been, and who we are now through the blood of Jesus. Most of all we want to tell you who Jesus is.”

Dallas says, “One of the great blessings of being around this long is that now I hear nightly of how God has used this ministry to change lives through the years. People come up and share how they were saved in a concert many years ago. I receive letters from parents telling me their kids came to know Christ at a concert and I also receive letters from kids who say their parents received Christ at a concert. We know of many in ministry both here and abroad who say that it was at a Dallas Holm concert where they felt the call to ministry. These testimonies and many more are the great highlight and reward of our ministry.”
