Gruene Hall celebrates 30th anniversary with musical performances
WEDNESDAY, MAY 4, 2005
Gruene Hall celebrates their 30th anniversary this weekend with performances by two incredible artists, Junior Brown and Joe Ely.
First up is Brown, who always draws a big crowd when he visits the historic venue. Influenced heavily by his idol’s, Ernest Ttibb and Jimi Hendrix, Brown is known to mix songs by both of these artists in his sets.
Known as the master of the guit steel, a guitar he invented, Brown can move seamlessly from a Texas waltz to a guitar lick from “Purple Haze.”
Once you witness a Junior Brown concert, you'll walk away knowing you were in the presence of a true master. Brown touches down at Gruene Hall Friday and is touring in support of his latest CD, “Down Home Chrome.” On Saturday night, Joe Ely returns with his original band to help Gruene Hall celebrate 30 years in grand style. Ely, long considered the
Bruce Springsteen of Texas music, has long been a Gruene Hall favorite, even filming his only officially released live concert video at the hall.■ ■■
If you witnessed last weeks show by Shooter Jennings at Gruene Hall, you saw an artist on his way up the music ladder, destined to be a major star.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Jennings has mixed outlaw country with classic rock and traditional country, to form a musical format that appeals to all age groups. From the opening notes of "Put The O Back In Country," Jennings took control of the crowd and never let up. In addition to playing his entire debut album, he included a few classic Wayion tunes like “Lonesome, Onry and Mean” and “Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way." After he and his band, the 357’s, finish their current headlining tour, they hit the road as opening act for Toby Keith.
Saengerhalle heists a special benefit concert Sunday featuring some of the best artists in Texais music. The show, benefiting Marina Becker, gets started around 4 p.m. and includes performances by Django Walker, Jason Boland, Doug Moreland find Full Throttle, plus many more. At p resstime, all the details concerning the benefit concert were still being v/orked out and more artists were signing on to appear. !■■■
Thirty years alter they released “Rocka Rolla," their first LR Judas Priest roars bade with “Angel of Retribution,” their fii'st release since reuniting with original vocalist Rob Halford.
The CD was released last month and comes with a bonus DVD of concert footage shot in Valencia, Spain. After working out their differences with Halford, they masters of metal regrouped and began recording the new album.

Celebrate and appreciate morn with food
By Ann Cousin
other’s Day will be celebrated this Sunday. It is a time of celebration and commemoration for mom; breakfast in bed, family gatherings, and crayon scribbled “I Love You’s.”
The earliest Mother’s Day celebrations can be traced back to the spring celebrations of ancient Greece in honor of Rhea, the Mother of the Gods. In the United States, Mother's Day was first suggested in 1872 by Julia Ward Howe, as a day dedicated to peace. Ms. Howe held organized Mother's Day meetings in Boston, Mass., every year.
In 1907, Ana Jarvis, from Philadelphia, began a campaign to establish a national Mother’s Day. By 1911, Mother’s Day was celebrated in almost every state. President Woodrow Wilson, in 1914, made the official announcement proclaiming Mother’s Day as a national holiday that was to be held each year on the second Sunday of May.
When mom first held you in her arms, she fell madly in love with you. At that very moment, her life changed forever and an unconditional love and bond like nothing else she would ever experience took over. She changed your diaper, fed you, bathed and dressed you and
most of all loved you with every fiber of her being. She took care of you when you were sick, wishing that it were her who was sick rather than you.
Not until we become adults, do we really begin to appreciate who mother really is. She has nurtured us through childhood, put up with our sassy ways and times of being lazy during our teenage years, and cried through our becoming an adult. She was always there to encourage us when we made a mistake and restore our faith in ourselves just when we thought we couldn’t go on.
As we grow older and have our own children, we realize that our mother was a very strong person, and we begin to wonder if we can ever fit into her shoes. We find out that we have to wear our own shoes and we can never really do things as mom did but we can follow the example she gave us and build on that.
If you have children, then you know what it’s like to be a mother. It is the toughest and most rewarding job on the face of this earth. Mom's always worry that they haven’t done enough to raise happy, kind, caring human beings. As mom’s we make mistakes; we are not perfect, but we do our best and the thing that sets us apart is our everlasting love for our children and our
in tent that they lead normal, well-adjusted lives.
Mothers are special. If your mother is living today, try to make this Mother’s Day the most wonderful day of her life! Show her you care, if only by telling her you love her. Take h er out to eat, bring her break-ftist in bed, send her flowers, s end her a mushy card; do something to let her know you love and appreciate her.
A lovely and inexpensive way t o celebrate Mother’s Day is to jgive your mom the day off. Let her take it easy and relax while the rest of the family does the work. Begin Mother’s Day by serving mom breakfast in bed. Dad and the kids can let mom sleep late while they prepare her favorite breakfast. Arrange everything nicely on a tray and be sure to include a vase with a flower along with mom’s favorite sections from the newspaper and of course those wonderful hand made cards. Let mom relax and see what a wonderful family she has.
Mom’s need to know that all they have done for their families over die years have been appreciated. We lead busy stressful lives and we often lose sight of the most important things in lives, our families. At right are some easy to make recipes that you can prepare for your Mother’s Day celebration.
After a few months in the studio, they took a break and joined Ozzy Osbourne’s “Ozzlest" tour. Halford even filled in for an ill Osbourne one night, performing an entire set with Black Sabbath. When the tour ended, it was back in the studio to put die finishing touches on the new album. Longtime fans agree it is a welcome return to form for Priest, with the overall feel of the album being much along the lines of 1990’s “Painkiller.’’ I heard traces of “Sad Wings of Destiny,” which is one of my all-time favorite Priest albums.
With the CD on the shelves and the fan’s thirst for a new batch of songs quenched, it was time to hit the road with a vengeance. Inviting fellow metal heads Queensryche along for the ride, they mapped out a tour that would conquer and destroy everyone in their path. They hit Texas in June with stops in San Antonio on June 25 and Dallas on June 26.
