Mickey Gilley & Breelan Angel at Freiheit

Freiheit Country Store's music calendar may be a bit sparse compared to other local venues, but they really know how to make each show count! Last night I saw one of they guys I grew up hearing regularly and would have never thought back then I would see him live when he was 79, had two accidents that severely impaired him with paralysis from the waist down and the loss of fine motor skills in his hands, but Mickey Gilley walked on the stage last night, sang with a golden voice every bit as good as it was 20 or 30 years ago and he even danced some! He did sit during several songs, but it was great to see that even though he isn't currently playing piano on stage, he said he hadn't given up on his hands yet, and he is still a very entertaining performer.

Breelan Angel opened the show last night, she was accompanied on stage by a guitarist and fiddle player and she is definitely a great example of the recent rise of female artists in Texas that are holding onto more traditional country roots. Breelan is a resident of New Braunfels, but you won't see her around here much because she's busy out on the road making a name for herself! She is definitely on the rise and I'm honored to say she will be joining us this coming January for our fourth annual Blowin' Off Steamboat Music Festival.

Enjoy some highlights of the show!
