LSP NEWS FLASHES!
Howdee Pickerheadz...we are playing BUCKHORN RV in KERRVILLE Sat. 5/26/12 ! It is open to the public for this event on Memorial Day weekend, so please come on out!
On April 11th, 09 in Brady Texas for the 2nd time, we are playing for the BRADY COTILLIAN from 8pm -12midnight. They are a wonderful group and it is a formal dance and we had a terrific time last year. It is open to the folks of Brady that are 40+, and we are thrilled to be asked back.
For the 7th year running we are playing at the CORNYVAL in HELOTES. This year it is on Saturday, May 2nd from 12noon til 3:30 on the big stage! We always get to open for someone very kool like Justin Trevino & Darrel McCall shows but we are not aware who the headliner is as yet. Plan on coming out!
November 26, 2008 Well...as Merle Haggard sang once "Time Changes Everything". This November, we said adios to two long-time band members. Our drummer and harmony vocalist John Damaini moved on after he was with the Lone Star Pickerz band over 8 years. This alumni of the LSP band is a skilled performer and we wish him well along with his wonderful family. Walter "Tooter" Ripps, our bass player and terrific lead and harmony singer for the past 5 years had to hang it up after his recording studio work overcame his time allowance. We will miss this terrific saddle pal too( our Brother from another Mother) in many ways. All the best to them both!
Wayne-o & Thomas
YEEEEE HAWWWWWWWWWWW..........we are back in Action in SA and S. TX after a Colorado stand of 5 weeks.. We took a SUMMER SIESTA of sorts....after our Fri. 6/27 gig at TEXAS SPIRITS, we were off and all was working in different venues. Wayne-o appeared at CASCADA BAR & GRILL in Creede Colorado. He is part of a duo called Hillwilliams
May 3rd, 2008 was our 6th year to be involved with the HELOTES CORNYVAL! We had an opportunity this year to play in the afternoon on Saturday. The parade came directly to the Helotes fair gounds and CORNYVAL. It was a cool gig and alot of fun! New IRRITATIONS were inducted and it was a hoot. (If you are a new IRRITATION, look for your picture soon!)
In April 08, the LSP Band was invited to play for the Brady, TX Cotillian, which is Spanish for Dance, in April. Was it a dance! The Gentlemen there were all in their finest suits, tuxes and the beautiful and classy Ladies all in evening gowns. That didn't stop them from having a "Center of Texas" EXTRA LARGE time! These folks know how to have fun at the HOP! Talk about Irritations! They stormed the stage...the band and the ladies had a great fun time. We've been hired for 1 year from now already for their April 09 Cotillian! Thanks Brady Pickerheadz....welcome aboard!
Memorial Day weekend 2008 in Bandera was alot of FUN and it starts with the parade down main street. Many LONGHORN Steers and Cowboys are always part of it and it's a true WESTERN parade. We opened the show for another Texas music legend, David Ball. David's hits include "Thinking Problem", "Look What Followed Me Home" and "When The Thought Of You Catches Up With Me". Many know David in Austin and S. Texas from his many years in UNCLE WALT'S BAND with Champ Hood and Walter Hyatt. Also on the bill was local Bandera favorite, Howard Hobson.
