The Big Sandy Music Hall has already seen its fair share of performers, and we want to continue to bring you great music no matter what the subject matter. We are excited to bring Amy Holden to you on Saturday Nov 11. The KIRBY’S will open up with their band, and then Amy Holden will take the stage with her band. Get your tickets now! It was such a pleasure to spend time with Amy in the studio getting to know her. Her application of writing a song, and then telling that story through her music is a true gift. She not only has an amazing voice, she knows how to deliver a performance! Her new album Where I Begin, is most definitely one to have in your collections of music. Be sure to login on her site and get it in your iTunes.
Join us this Saturday Night NOV 11 for Great Music and Fun with Amy Holden and The Kirbys

Ladies and gentlemen all the way from Sweden! The Loveflowers
Light acoustic melodies and harmonies, wonderful tunes inspiring young and old, come see them here at Big Sandy Music Hall! Here’s a little info we found on their website!
In september 2006, Michael and Leif met at a local demostudio. They started to talk about music and their influences. Leif had a tune which he started to play on the guitar and Michael felt that this was something he could relate to and the tune sounded just like his own ideas. In twenty minutes they had the idea on tape and they also tried to find some lyrics that was appropriate to the motion and feeling of the tune. Yvonne Greiffe had poems which she had written long ago. She wrote the main part of them in according to things she had gone trough in life. Her lyrics is very personal and they fitted well to the song.
And that is still what they are doing – finding new ideas – turning them into songs – recording and having a lot of fun in the studio.
Leif Thörner and Michael Greiffe are the songwriters, arrangers and producers of two albums with Loveflowers. The first album “Loveflowers”, was relased in october 2008. It contains ten songs, and it is an unusual album, because there are five songs with swedish lyrics and five more songs with english lyrics. Bands do not usually mix texts in different languages on the same album, so this is not so common.
The second album, “Bridge or Barrier” took a while to finish, but in september 2013 the world was ready to meet Loveflowers development. Now was a major promotional campaign in europe and Scandinavia. It got many good reviews thanks to good promotional company and many newspapers wrote nice articles about the band and the music. The songs were also played on many radiostations throughout europe.
In august 2014, Loveflowers was invited to participate in “Texas Sounds International Country Music Awards” in Jefferson, Texas. The band performed and had a great time in Texas and a week later they got this amazing award “Best Songwriters of the Year”!!!

We long to play with our friend in Orange County Skip Hahn. But until that happens again we remember our pieces of music that we created each moment we had in the studio. Skip Hahn a powerhouse musician virtuoso, just happened to be who we met. Soon after our arrival in fact, Skip and I started recording together, and playing live in different groups. The Kirby’s is two thirds of the group, Skip, played everything, and played it well. From keyboard to guitar, to drums…and the list goes on….We hope this radio show convinces Skip that he needs to consider moving to Texas so we can rock the state with our style of Rock and Roll. Until then, we The Kirby’s want to continue to bring you our flavor of rock, acoustic style. Our band is taking off but we had a mis hap with our drummer as a plate glass window hit his foot in a freak accident. Clay Jurenka is a well known drummer in the area, and we are pleased to have him play with us in our many projects. Keep his foot in your prayers as we continue on! Join us this Friday at Red Rooster Hawkins, or Saturday Night here at Big Sandy Music Hall!

Big Sandy Music Hall is proud to announce the following show! Zion Spencer came to us first on our Singer Songwriter stage. We were so impressed by his ability to connect with the audience, and with his flavor of original music, we had him back. Come see Zion Spencer a third time, and get a double treat as the band Profetic..Calaveras….Sorry for the dots, the incorrect spelling messed with my writing program!
As intended, Alex Ruiz mentions that spelling it incorrectly insinuates that is spelled wrong in both English and Spanish… This group has some tasty grooves, and you will sure want to be here this Saturday Night SEPT 6th! Catch these guys now, because they are on their way to play a string of shows on the West Coast….and we don’t know when we will get them here again!
See you at the show! Big Sandy Music Hall!
