The concert scene in the Temple/Belton area was unofficially kicked off with a series of outstanding shows this weekend and CenTexFun.com was there for all of it.
On Thursday night, Ronnie and Staci Schoepf began their 10th year of music in the backyard by welcoming old friends Whiskey Myers. Whiskey brought The Steel Woods, a great southern rock band out of Nashville, Tennessee. The Steel Woods won over new fans with every song and guitar solo
The crowd built as the sun went down and Whiskey Myers took the stage with the crowd singing along to their hits like Mud, Frogman, Early Morning Shakes, and Ballad of a Southern Man. They closed out the show with an energetic crowd pleaser - Jumping Jack Flash.
On Friday night in Temple, O'Briens Irish Pub welcomed a new-comer, Sim Ross. Sim is a mix of punk rock with a touch of 80's rock and a pinch of country. Belton's own Seth Tobin manned the bass while Sonny Bihl, previously from the Warhorses, joined Sim on lead guitar.
Sim warmed up the stage for El Paso's Dirty River Boys. The unique band lived up to expectations with their soulful brand of country-rock.
And finally, Temple's Cultural Activities Center continued their top-notch Texas Music Series with a full house to see Austin's Hayes Carll. Hayes brought his full band and his wit to put on one of the more memorable shows in some time.
