Frankie Ballard Concert Electric - Oak Ridge Boys Next:  Last week's Frankie Ballard concert was a rockin' country event that drew a great review from Tim Parsons at Next up on our schedule is a special concert by Decades on June 18 with all proceeds going to the Boys and Girls Club of Western Nevada, Carson Valley Branch. A week later The Oak Ridge Boys,  2015 inductees into the Country Music Hall of Fame, swing their 2016 tour into TJ's Corral on Saturday, June 25 for a concert almost certain to sell out. Additional 2016 Concerts coming up in TJ’s Corral include Clay Walker, The Temptations Review Featuring Dennis Edwards, The Eli Young Band and Randy Houser! 

Eli Young Band New Release this Friday: We love the sound of the Saltwater Gospel single being released by the Eli Young Band this Friday – their first single under a new deal with Valory Music Co.  The song “immediately transports the listener to their favorite beach, where the mystical power of the ocean melts away the troubles of everyday life — while connecting them to their own spirituality.” You can get a 26 second taste of this upbeat, toe-tapping country tune at this link. Then, be sure not to miss the The Eli Young Band Concert in TJ’s corral on Sunday, August 14 . . . tickets will be going on sale soon.

Mike Tice Charity Golf "Decades Party" is a Must!  The stage is set, the prizes have been arriving every day from around the country and soon the 6th Annual Mike Tice Charity Golf Tournament for the Boys and Girls Club of Western Nevada will be here . . . with Coach Tice, some of the other Oakland Raider coaches, and Mike's extended circle of friends taking over the CVI on Father's Day weekend.  Local participation has grown over the last few years and information is available for the Decades Concert on Saturday, June 18 in TJ’s Corral with an optional Spaghetti Dinner before the concert. While billed as a "concert" the appearance by Decades is more of a dance party with plenty of room for dancing, lots of visiting and singing along - if you wish - to classic oldies and current pop tunes! There are also one or two openings for the Charity Golf Tournament and Awards Dinner on Sunday, June 19. Buying tickets for the concert or getting involved in the golf tournament is easy at this link. If you have questions or want to donate or participate in a manner not covered, please call Katie Leao at (775) 882-8820.
