Bobby Flores and the Yellow Rose Band will perform in concert at 7 p.m., Thursday, April 16, in the Q.M. Martin Auditorium at Panola College.

The event is underwritten by the B.F. and Mary Payne Fund for the Preservation of Texas Culture, and is open to the public, free of charge. Foster and Mary Payne Murphy established the fund to promote Texas Culture. This year’s concert features the premier classic country and western swing band in Texas, featuring three fiddles, steel guitar and vocals by Bobby Flores.

Flores is a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, arranger, producer and composer, who played first violin/fiddle for country legend Ray Price. A special exhibit, on loan from Ray Price’s widow, is currently on display at the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame in Carthage.

Flores won a Grammy Award in 2002 for his original string and brass arrangements and violin performances on Freddy Fender’s CD, “La Musica de Baldemar Huerta.” He has won numerous awards for his music, and has been inducted into the Country Music Association of Texas Hall of Fame and the Western Swing Music Hall of Fame. Flores and the band are registered with the Texas Commission on the Arts.

Other musicians in the Yellow Rose Band include Dennis Kubos, R.J. Smith, Jody Cameron, and Carl Garner. With Flores on vocals, the band plays tunes from Bob Wills to Ray Price to Merle Haggard, along with original arrangements of favorite Texas Swing music.

“This is real Texas Swing music at its finest, performed by some of the best musicians in the country,” said Freddy Mason, Panola College Dean of Liberal Arts and Sciences. “We are grateful to the Murphy-Payne family for their efforts to support the arts by funding events such as this that highlight Texas culture.”
