Josh Peek to perform at Medina River Cleanup
Volunteers in the 14th annual Medina River Cleanup will be entertained after a hard day's work Saturday, May 3, by Josh Peek and members of his band at the Bandera City Park, next to the dam. Peek will perform at the barbecue from 5 pm to 7 pm.
Peek was raised in the Texas Hill Country in Comfort. His first CD, Bull Rider's Dream, was released in 2001 by Cowboy Capital Records in Bandera. His career in rodeo bull riding was cut short in 2004 after suffering a rodeo injury that left him with nine broken ribs and a punctured lung.
In 2007, he recorded Central Texas Kid at Flashpoint Studio in Austin about his life experiences - the pains and joys of growing up in the Hill Country.
The cleanup is organized by the Medina River Protection Fund, a perpetual fund established to clean and protect the Medina River in Bandera County. Tax-deductible donations may be made to the "Medina River Protection Fund" and sent to PO Box 417, Lakehills 78063.
