By Sandy Jennings BCC Staff Writer

The Bandera Music Hall of Fame and the Frontier Times Museum couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day to kickoff the 2nd Sunday Music Fest, which hosted four Hall of Fame bands and musicians this past Sunday from 1pm to 4pm at the museum’s Texas Traildrivers Theatre.
With November sunshine lighting up the stage, Bandera Hall of Famers Boone Holding, Paul Hilliard, Three Peace Band (Cynthia Anderson, Rick Jeter and Karen Haile) and Laurie and Sally Gibson of the Gibson Sisters had the crowd moving to the music and singing along.
“It all went really well,” Bandera Music Hall of Fame President Karen Lucia said. “We had a nice turnout, it was a beautiful day and we all enjoyed lots of good music and good food.”
The festival was free. The only expense was food and drink purchases from an assortment of vendors and food trucks. Fritze’s BBQ and Catering from Boerne set up shop with an array of delicious dishes from brisket to pulled pork. Fritze’s is located at 926 N. Main Street in Boerne.
“I really enjoyed the show and will be back next month,” Fritze’s Catering Manager Dan Rosalie said.
Local vendors Git Along ‘Lil Dogie, with gourmet hotdogs offered a variety of fun food.
“For just getting started, I think the festival was great,” Dogie owner Dorothy Immel said. “We look forward to coming back to the festival in December.”
Immel noted that all of their meat products are from the Bandera Meat Market on Main Street.
The Kelani Yogurt truck was a sweet surprise for all those wanting to cool down and enjoy everything from frozen yogurt and toppings to fresh smoothies.
According to Lucia, the 2nd Sunday Music Fest will continue in December through March with open pickers and will be hosted by a guest musician from the hall of fame. In April, the festival will continue with featured acts, showcasing bands and musicians featured in the Hall of Fame Awards.
“If all the people that came to listen to the music are happy and all the people that came to play are happy and all the food trucks that came are happy, then I think everyone was happy today,” featured musician Boone Holding said. “This is something positive to grow off of for our community.”
