The Randy Rogers Band are cool, they get a lot of face time in some of the music blogs but I don't think I've ever heard them on the radio. Maybe, I don't know. Anyway, they're popular with those in the know, but those in the general music-listening public probably have no clue about them.
Well that didn't stop them from packing in the fans for one of their recent concerts. The boys played the opening night of the 2009 Lone Star Music Series and drew in the 7th largest non-fireworks night attendance in Lone Star Park's history. So how many was that? 18,561 fans watched the RRB perform.
Only Willie Nelson, Pat Green, and Cross Canadian Ragweed have drawn more people to Lone Star Park, which is a thoroughbred race track,for a non-fireworks concert than the RRB did Friday night.
"The outstanding attendance for the opening of our 2009 Lone Star Music Series demonstrates that Lone Star Park continues to be one of the best entertainment values in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area," said track President and General Manager Drew Shubeck. "We were especially pleased that many in attendance came early to enjoy both the excitement of our Thoroughbred racing as well as the concert. It's a great start for our 2009 Spring Thoroughbred meet."
So I still want to know if people were there for the band or for the horse racing.
