10th Annual Tony Booth Days
Each year country music artist Tony Booth and a collection of his musician friends gather to perform a night of "real country music" dubbed Tony Booth Day. This year the celebration expands to two days with a commemorative Friday night Alvin Opry Reunion dance to set the mood.
The Alvin Opry hosted country music artists every Friday night in a modest Alvin dancehall for 26 years before closing its doors in 2014 due to the health-related issues of the owner. Alvin resident Tony Booth was a regular at the Alvin Opry.
Entertainers at the Friday Alvin Opry Reunion dance at Billy’s Hall include Tony Booth, Brian Collins, Lauretta Turner, John Mark Davis, Miranda Diede, Kim Lanier, Missy Brown, Rhonda Walters, Sylvia Riggs, Shalane, Shawn Johnson, Jim Beaumont, Mary Dooley, Arnold Parker, Royce Melton, Tommy Reed and The Texas Express Band with emcee Tracy Pitcox.
The line-up for Saturday event includes Tony Booth, Johnny Bush, Brian Collins, Dallas Wayne, Randy Cornor, Larry Booth, Justin Trevino, Dottie Jack, Doug Boggs, Robin Booth, Lauretta Turner, Jerry Locke, Tommy Reed, Buddy Hrabel, Matt Reed & Harris Kubos, and Emcee Tracy Pitcox.
