The Light Crust Doughboys To Appear In First 2008 Concert

By Leocthasme

At The Pocket Sandwich Theatre

The legendary Light Crust Doughboys, in their first Pocket Concert of 2008, present "Springtime On The Range," on Monday, April 28, at 7:30 at the Pocket Sandwich Theatre.

Previously named The State of Texas Official Music Ambassadors by the State Legislature, the Doughboys were last year designated Official Touring Artists by the Texas Commission on the Arts, one of 12 outstanding Texas artists to receive this honor. So they'll be taking their act all over the country this year, and it's going to cut into their Pocket Concert time. This concert is just one of two which they'll be presenting at the Pocket Sandwich Theatre this year.

The moral to this story? Catch them while you can so you don't have to take a trip out of town to enjoy their wonderful show.

Additional honors, among the many which have been bestowed upon the Doughboys, include a Grammy Award, induction into many musical Halls of Fame, and in 2007 receiving the Academy of Western Artists (AWA) "Will Rogers Award for Western Swing Group."

The Doughboys have performed to enthusiastic crowds at the Pocket Sandwich Theatre for many years. Members of the group include Maurice Anderson, Dale Cook, Jim Baker, Kevin Bailey, and Art Greenhaw. The Doughboys Brass and Reed Ensemble will also be on hand to provide their wonderful big-band sound to the Western Swing.

The theatre will open for dinner and beverage service at 6:15 on Monday, April 28, and the show will begin at 7:30. Tickets (show only) are $18.00. The Pocket Sandwich Theatre is located at 5400 East Mockingbird, Suite 119, Mockingbird Central Plaza, one block east of Central Expressway.
