Another wonderful Nocona Nights is in the books: a great dinner and an incredible concert by Tommy Alverson and Davin James.
So many wonderful volunteers made this happen.
In July , patrons will be offered the first opportunity to purchase tickets for the 2021-2022 season featuring four dinner/ concerts. An amazing selection of old favorites and new performers is being arranged. It is expected the limited number of seats will sell out to patrons, but anyone wanting to get on the waiting list for season tickets should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Hot Club of Cowtown has canceled their August appearance at Nocona Nights, the last scheduled performance of our 2019-2020 season. It’s certainly a pattern we’re seeing across our country. We have three options to offer you :
We give you your ticket price back – $50 per ticket.
You allow us to transfer that $50 per ticket to the next season for your credit.
You consider these tickets a donation to Nocona Nights to help with the future viability of Nocona Nights and our music-loving community
Please let us know your preference. If you elect Option 1 then please send us an email with your address to mail your refund check. In view of the Covid Pandemic we have decided to suspend the start of the 2020-2021 season until January. If conditions improve by then we’ll plan and offer an abbreviated spring season probably starting in February. Our Art of the Song Festival will of necessity be canceled this fall and rescheduled at a future date. We are sorry to have to make this announcement and these decisions. Our Nocona Nights volunteers have taken great pleasure in offering these 17 years of fantastic performances to our community and look forward to again planning many fun and entertaining dinner/concerts as soon as safely and practically ableBest wishes to all of you and thanks for your many years of support ! Your Nocona Nights Committee
We were able to get these same two bands together on August 8th for their special Armistice Day program – The Finest Hour. The title will be appropriate if we can make this happen then.Please put this on your calendar and plan to join us. We will have extra seating available for this show so please invite your friends to make reservations for this dinner and concert.Thanks again for your understanding and support during this difficult time.

Due to the current coronavirus situation we are working with Hot Club to reschedule their concert at Nocona Nights. We’ll keep you advised when we can book a new date with them. Hope you’re all doing well. Thanks for your understanding of this necessary change. Per Clint Brown
Larry Joe Taylor started out in the early 70’s no different than many of his fans today: A full-time employee with a deep love of music, armed with only an old guitar and a dream. Influenced by the songs of Guy Clark, Jerry Jeff Walker, The Doors and Bob Dylan, Taylor writes songs that form his own genre he likes to call “Coastal & Western”. The varied moods of Taylor’s songs keep the crowds on their toes while he shifts from his loud-and-proud dancing tunes to soulful ballads. Some 40 years later, Taylor finds himself right in the middle of the biggest dream of his life; to not only be a respected songwriter in his own right, but also having the opportunity to present songwriters and music he respects on one of the biggest stages in the U.S…the Larry Joe Taylor Texas Music Festival, which is preparing for its 25th year anniversary, drawing crowds of 50,000 plus.
It’s no accident Davin James begins Palmer Lake with a series of life-is-good strummers about family life and simple pleasures. Since recovering from a heart attack, James has toned his hard-charging image down, and this set reveals a markedly mellower but assuredly wiser man. Like his compadre Jesse Dayton, James totally grasps the unique groove of the Gulf Coast, and one of the sweetest voices in Texas allows him to range effortlessly from George Jones country to the closest thing a redneck is ever likely to get to Otis Redding on “Felt A Delta”. The catchy “Ain’t No Soul on the Radio” is a stone-cold Hank Williams homage lambasting the sterility of country radio.
