The person that coaxed these folks out of the closet was Pat (in the center) the show director/producer.
The three judges were introduced. This one is Howard Sternum.
The house was packed in anticipation.
The first act set the tone for the evening.
Sonny and Cher and of course 'I've got you babe'.
They received the first of many standing ovations.
Next from Russia a world famous ballerina, The Sugar Plum Fairy, who was busy spreading pixie dust over the audience.
This couple had an argument on stage because 'anything one could do the other could do better'.
Donnie and Marie dropped in from Utah. Fortunately Donnies voice didn't make the trip so Marie sang 'Paper Roses'. Donnie was just his usual charming self.
Next a dance number as we were 'singing in the rain', an almost impossible event in South Texas.
How much is that 'doggie in the window' and the one pictured on the board did have a waggely tail.
Mr. Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson were next on the bill and Willie taking drags on his funny cigarette caught Howard Sternums attention and probably effected the vote.
This man was an amazing musician. He was able to play both parts of 'dueling banjos' with a guitar on one shoulder and a banjo on the other. He invited to audience to sing along, but no one seemed to know the words.
The show ended with a infomercial directed to the folks that have not yet become Winter Texans, inviting them to join in the fun at
Another fun evening at J-5 where we are all busy enjoying the good life.
