This years 10-member-band is packed full of talent. “Wade Landry and Dale Morris, Jr., are two of the most outstanding fiddle players of our time,” said producer JW Sollis.  JW’s son, Wendell Sollis, is an excellent musician and will be joining the band on the banjo.  Crowell, Texas, native, Ronny Dale Shultz will be playing lead guitar and serving as leader of the band. Larry Reed will be on the saxophone, Steve Ham on trombone, Bob Baker on steel guitar, Terry Thompson on drums, and Ron Ellis on bass. The lovely and talented Ginny Mac, the only female in the band, will be playing keyboard and singing vocals.  “Everyone loves Ginny. Her voice reminds you of someone out of the 1940s,” said Sollis. And, as a special guest vocalist, Darrel Sparkman of Quanah, Texas, will be joining the band.

 The Cowboy Christmas Ball will be held on Friday night, December 16, 2011, starting at 8:00 p.m., at the Knox Prairie Events Center in Goree, Texas, on Highway 277 in Knox County.  The building, formally the Goree ISD, has been converted into an events center hosting various events throughout the year, including the Bobby Boatright Western Swing Music Camp, held this past July.
