Gruene With Envy

"At a dance hall down in Texas
That's the finest place to be
The women all look beautiful
And their men will buy your beer for free"
-Lyle Lovett

Yesterday afternoon I headed down to Gruene, Texas (say Green) to Gruene Hall and met up with some friends to see Redd Volkaert play.
Gruene Hall is the oldest dance hall in all of Texas. Redd is a Grammy nominated (three times now) guitar player.
The hall is much bigger than it looks from the front... It stretches way out back.
Redd is a Hell of a guitar player and the musical stylings, while mostly country, ranged into some damn good rock and roll.

The Venue is exactly what you'd expect when you hear the words "Texas Dance Hall".

A couple of the guys and myself decided to get a picture with Redd... A great time was had by all.
So, if you ever find yourself in Gruene, Tx, stop by the dance hall, have a beer and listen to some good music.
