GCM Hall of Fame Show
After Show Comments for our November 16, 2018 Gatesville Country Music Hall of Fame show featured Paul and Tara Schlesinger band. Paul’s band included Larry Burgin on bass guitar and vocals (from Temple), Bill Dearmore on steel guitar, and Jim Bowles on drums and vocals.
Paul and Tara always bring us great music and entertainment. Tara is a master on the keyboard. She sings with a loud and wonderful voice. Paul is simply a great fiddle player. He shows how to play the fiddle lying on his back on the floor, behind his back standing up, and with the bow shaft under the fiddle and the horsehair strings above the fiddle.
Awards presented to the Paul’s band:
1. Tara and Paul Schlesinger received the Gatesville Country Music Hall of Fame, Musical Artist of the Year framed certificate award and a Musical Artist of the Year Trophy.
2. Paul Schlesinger received the Gatesville Country Music Hall of Fame, Master Musician framed certificate award.
3. Paul Schlesinger received a large Trophy Cup with an engraved plate.
4. Larry Burgin, Bill Dearmore, and Jim Bowles received a Gatesville Country Music Hall of Fame Appreciation Award framed certificate.
5. Tom Williamson, playing bass for the first time with the Gatesville Country Music Hall of Fame house band (Country Sounds) received an Appreciation Award framed certificate.
