The Golden Age Of Honky Tonk

Posted: Updated:

The Museum of North Texas History will feature "The Golden Age of the Honky-Tonk" in an upcoming exhibit. 

It's a display of the rich live music and dance hall scene in Wichita Falls from
the 1950s to the mid 1970s. The exhibit includes instruments, equipment, tons of pictures of the places and people, and lots of stories. The exhibit also has the look and feel of a dance hall.

Kenny Mayo interviewed seven of the musicians from that era. The interviews are now on a DVD and in a book, both of which will be available for sale.

There will also be an opening party September 19, 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. There will be food, drinks and dancing! Also, there will be live music by Post Oak.

Tickets are $35 in advance, $40 at the door.  Advance sales end on Sept. 16.  Tickets are available at Market Street, Music Express, and the Museum.

The exhibit opens to the public on Sept. 20 and will run through the rest of the year.
For more info, call the Museum at 322-7628 or email to month@sbcglobal.net.
