November 3….Monte Montgomery in Concert - Guitar player extraordinaire....jaw-dropping performer....master songwriter - all these descriptions aptly, but only partially come close to describing Monte Montgomery - the incredibly talented guitar slinger from Austin, Texas. Named one of "Top 50 All-Time Greatest Guitar Players" by Guitar Player Magazine, Monte is a rare and true triple threat of singer, songwriter and master musician. His latest recording, a self-titled, 12 cut record, showcases Monte's stylistic diversity and soulfully explores the many shades of his artistry. The virtuoso, trademark guitar licks and arrangements you'd expect from Monte are there, forming the rich and colorful aural backdrop of his insightful songwriting and amazing voice. From bluesy roots rock like "Can't Fool Everyone" to wistful ballads to the jazzy "Could've Loved You Forever"...this record has it all. And just when you think you've got him pegged, he changes it up to leave listeners breathless with the sensual, lyrical, Latin-tinged "Moonlight Tango". It's no wonder that Austin City Limits producer Terry Lickona introduced him years ago on that program with these words: "Monte Montgomery blows people away. There is no other way to describe it." Reserved seats; Floor, first 5 rows $25 in advance; Remainder of floor $20 in advance; Standard balcony $15 in advance. Note: All seats $25 day of show. Purchase tickets by visiting or call 762-3233. Cactus Theater, 1812 Buddy Holly Ave; Doors at 6:30; show 7:30 pm.

November 4….Kings of Cowtown Comedy World Tour: Cowboy Bill Martin and Chad Prather (Plus Special Guests JUST ADDED!): - Cowboy Bill Martin and Chad Prather broke all the rules when it came to making it in show business! Martin built a huge stand-up following through 19 years of endless touring on land in comedy clubs, at sea with Carnival Cruise Lines, overseas entertaining our troops, and in concert with such acts as George Strait, Brad Paisley and all four members of the famed Blue Collar Comedy Tour. Then in late 2015, hit it big with his self-financed one-hour comedy special on CMT. Prather’s rise to fame came a little different. The in-
demand humorist and host of a show on RIDE-TV called, IT’S MY BACKYARD, he has become one of the most recognized personalities on the network and was named CMA Texas Personality of the year. But like Martin, in 2015 his stardom skyrocketed with his hilarious and often poignant “rants in the truck” on Facebook that garnered him millions of fans where he became a household name. Proudly sponsored by Rank Rodeo Threads, together, these two entertainment mavericks formed a partnership - KINGS OF COWTOWN - and kicked off a comedy tour playing theaters and large country bars across the country adding stops like the famed Billy Bob’s Texas in Fort Worth, TX. For this show, both standard reserved and VIP tickets will be offered. VIP tickets are located on the first 3 rows and includes premium seating, a backstage Meet & Greet, picture with the guys and a commemorative, signed poster and lanyard. All other seats are $25. The Kings are selling-out everywhere. They work hard; play harder! And oh, by the way, they spend their afternoons delivering new cowboy hats to kids with cancer as part of the Cowboys Who Care Foundation. What’s not to love? Reserved seats; Floor $25 with VIP tickets priced at $40 for the first 3 rows - which also includes a signed commemorative poster, backstage Meet and Greet pass and lanyard.
