Music. Beer. A good time. What else do you need?
That’s what to expect at our first-ever Shocktoberfest.
Join us for a day full of, well … music, beer and a good time. Shocktoberfest will give you a chance to drink beer, listen to some good tunes, enjoy delicious grub from Ted Campbell and have an all-around great time. There also will be vendors on hand selling their cool merchandise.
Our music headliner will be Nashville-signed country rockers Flynnville Train.
Country superstar Toby Keith once said about Flynnville Train: ”As soon as I got the CD I put it on and was hooked. Right then I knew I had to see if Flynnville Train were as good performing live as they are on the disc. They were more than I could have expected and I signed them on the spot. You will hear great things from this band.”
Country singer Jessie Brown will open the concert.
Shocktoberfest is from 1 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, in Downtown Tyler around the square. Tickets are $10 at the gate and kids 5 and under are free.
Deer Camp: The Musical
DEER CAMP hilariously follows four fearless deer hunters on their annual trek to deer camp. After decades of hunting trips, the guys have yet to bring home a single deer and the wives are getting suspicious. This season they need to show their wives that they are the mighty hunters they claim to be, not so easy when the thought of drinking beer and hanging out in the deer shack is more appealing than freezing in a deer stand. What to do? Shoot one, steal one, or buy one? Featuring two of Newhart’s favorites – “My Brother Darryl” and “My Other Brother Darryl” – Tony Papenfuss and John Voldstad – you will laugh your head off as these lovable louts hatch a plan to save their hunting paradise without ever firing a shot. www.deercampmusical.com

Arsenic and Old Lace is a play by American playwright Joseph Kesselring, written in 1939. It has become best known through the film adaptation starring Cary Grant and directed by Frank Capra.
The play is a farcical black comedy revolving around Mortimer Brewster, a drama critic who must deal with his crazy, homicidal family and local police in Brooklyn, NY, as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry the woman he loves. His family includes two spinster aunts who have taken to murdering lonely old men by poisoning them with a glass of home-made elderberry wine laced with arsenic, strychnine, and “just a pinch” of cyanide; a brother who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt and digs locks for the Panama Canal in the cellar of the Brewster home (which then serve as graves for the aunts’ victims); and a murderous brother who has received plastic surgery performed by an alcoholic accomplice, Dr. Einstein (a character based on real-life gangland surgeon Joseph Moran) to conceal his identity and now looks like horror-film actor Boris Karloff (a self-referential joke, as the part was originally played by Karloff).

Asleep At The Wheel Documentary and ConcertFriday, November 8 at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $30 on the floor and
VIP boxes are $200 (seat 4)
Can a wheel reinvent itself while it’s still rolling? Sounds like an impossible task — but you never want to
say “impossible” to Asleep at the Wheel, the famed western-swing, boogie, and roots-music outfit that’s, amazingly, still on the upswing. That’s saying something, too, considering the group’s been around for nearly 40 years, turning out an incredible 25+ albums while playing an unrelenting schedule of one-nighters that would make a vaudevillian dizzy.
And even as the Wheel rolled on, the reinvention had begun. You could see and hear it in their live shows, where new vocalist Elizabeth McQueen invited comparison with the classic female vocalists of the band’s earlier era, and fiddler-singer Jason Roberts gave the band a second male lead voice to complement Benson’s immediately identifiable baritone.
These days, the reinvented Wheel is also rolling down a couple of new avenues. One involves to the critically acclaimed musical play, A Ride With Bob, which stars Benson as himself — encountering the ghost of Bob Wills on a tour bus – Roberts as the young Wills, and McQueen as Minnie Pearl and other famed entertainment figures, with the rest of the band members featured as well. Originally designed as a one-off celebration of Wills’ 100th birthday in ’05, A Ride With Bob quickly took on a life of its own and, notes Benson, “it’s absolutely a part of what we do now.” Another success has been the adaptation of the Wheel’s repertoire for pops symphony. Performances with Dallas, Austin, Fort Worth & Amarillo symphonies have drawn record crowds.
Now in contemplating the 40th anniversary of Asleep at the Wheel in 2010, Ray remains focused on the original concept. “I carried the load for many, many years, but I’ve always just wanted to have a band, as opposed to Ray Benson and Asleep at the Wheel,” Benson explains. “That’s what we had in the ‘70s – a band, a revue kind of deal, which was the whole concept. But trying to replace a Chris O’Connell was very difficult. And then Elizabeth walks up, and boom – here’s my girl singer. And then I kept pushing Jason, both through the play and through the band, saying, `Man, you’ve got talent. You can sing. You’ve got the golden ear – just apply it to your singing and songwriting.’”
So, whether your next encounter with Asleep at the Wheel is at a dance or concert, or backing up Willie Nelson via the new disc, or at a live production of A Ride with Bob, you’ll be witnessing something very special — a band that’s not only been entertaining audiences with its own genre-busting music for four decades, but also a group that’s never been afraid to try something new — including a reinvention, inspired by the past, that rolls joyously toward a long and shining future.
