After Show Comments
for February 16, 2018
Friends, if you didn't come to this show, you missed seeing a fantastic show. The "Joel Hofmann Band" gave an outstanding performance. They are a professional group of players with many years of experience behind them. They are the house band for Riley’s Tavern in Hunter, TX. The band consists of Joel Hofmann (lead and rhythm guitar, vocals, and owner of Riley’s Tavern), Billy Dee Donahue (bass guitar), Lars Albrecht (lead guitar), and Clay Rheinlander (drums). Big John Mills (lead guitar) wasn’t able to be with the band because of the Flu. Filling in for Mills was Lars Albrecht who had brain surgery only 8 days before the show. This is his second, recent brain surgery. This didn’t hinder his playing at all. Lars showed the audience that he is a great guitarist. Let us know if you would like to see them return to our stage.
1. “Honorary Membership” in the Gatesville Country Music Hall of Fame was awarded to each member of the Joel Hofmann band.
2. A “Special Guest Trophy” was presented to the Joel Hofmann band.
3. A “Music Note Symbol Trophy” was also presented to the Joel Hofmann band.
Again, thanks to the GCM Hall of Fame house band and our technical staff for their part in producing the show. Our band members were Louie Lee (lead guitar), Matlyn Webb (keyboard/vocals), Roger Vierse (MC/steel guitar), James Peltier (lead/rhythm guitar, & vocals), Ken West (rhythm guitar), John Nickell (rhythm guitar), and Lynn Webb (sound technician). Richard Adams, our staff photographer, provides pictures for our website.
