Central Market is excited to present the Fall 2017 Texas Dance Hall Tour hosted by Ray Benson & Asleep at the Wheel. This is a four-day weekend destination tour from October 26-29th, 2017 in Galveston and throughout Austin County which is one of the oldest counties in Texas, organized in 1837 during the Republic of Texas and named after Stephen Fuller Austin, also known as the “Father of Texas”.
Think of it as a “land cruise” with our port-of-calls being several of the state’s historical dance halls, featuring a range of notable Western Swing, Ameripolitan and Texas artists. Filled with history, romance and a way of life, these halls have been the breeding grounds of Texas music for over a century – and now you have a chance to be a part of that!
“There wouldn’t be Texas music without our Texas dance halls…They’re like the Carnegie Hall of Western Swing and Texas Music!” – Ray Benson
Join us for four full days to experience Texas music heritage at its finest and most importantly, make memories that will Two-Step their way right into your music-loving heart!
