Gruene Hall: 1988

Check out this calendar for Gruene Hall from September 1988!

Gruene Hall 1988

Notice Hal Ketchum listed a few times, with just a $3 cover! (Can you imagine?!) This was only a few years before his early hits "Small Town Saturday Night" and "Past the Point of Rescue" launched him into stardom in 1991.

Other names you may recognize are Jerry Jeff (Walker) and Robert (Earl) Keen. On their way to becoming icons of Texas country music, they were both cutting their teeth on the Gruene Hall stage.

If you close your eyes and turn up our Gruene Hall: 1988 playlist, you can almost feel a cold drink in your hand and the wooden dance floor under your feet. >>
