Greetings Music Lovers,
It’s that time of year when we can be grateful for music that invites us outdoors. So, to kick off our season al fresc, Rockin’ Box 33 is delighted to announce Patricia Vonne’s performance next Saturday April 26th. Many of you have had the pleasure of listening to Patricia perform with us, up close and personal. If you have…and maybe especially if you haven’t…you’ll want to make time in your schedule for this event. Patricia is accompanied by her husband, Bobby LaRoche, on guitar and David Perales on violin. What these artists bring when performing together is nothing short of magic. Patricia’s stage show is always intoxicating, with songwriting, instrumentals and artistic movement all coming together to create art for the eyes, body and soul.
Please contact us today to RSVP for what promises to be an unforgettable show. Performance starts at 7:15pm; tickets are $20 BYOB. Weather permitting we’ll be outside, so please also bring a lawn chair.
Patricia Vonne began forging a following in Texas playing clubs and festivals and opening shows for kindred souls like Joe Ely, Alejandro Escovedo, Los Lobos, Raul Malo, Chris Isaak, Buddy Guy and others. Vonne was invited to tour Europe for the first time as a special guest star with Tito & Tarantula, and her enchanting stage presence led to her now many visits to follow with her own group.
Vonne's fervent and alluring performances have driven her international appeal. As Escovedo notes, "You can't take your eyes off her when she's onstage. The combination of the power of her performance and the romanticism of her songs creates a real mystique, a very heady concoction." At the same time, she has honed her songwriting skills to a sweet cutting edge that won her a grand prize in the Latin category of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and a second place Latin song win in the Billboard Songwriting Contest. She also follows the album with acting roles in two films directed by her brother, Robert Rodriguez: Machete Kills (Oct 2013) and Sin City: A Dame To Kill For (coming in 2014), in which she reprises her role as Zorro Girl.
Escovedo agrees that Vonne has grown to stand head and shoulders with some of Texas's finest. "She's such a passionate artist and person, and all that seeps through the grooves of her records."
Thanks, as ever, for your support of real live music in West Texas. See you on Saturday!
