When it comes to the blues today, there are a handful of guiding lights to make sure the music stays true to its powerful source. The sound of pleasure and pain that first sparked musicians to create such a sound is a force that can never be underestimated. The mojo has to be there. For Jimmie Vaughan, he’s dedicated his life to making sure the blues not only stays alive, but remains full of life and an inspiration to all who listen. It’s a spirit he holds close to him, and for over 50 years of holding the blues close inside him, Vaughan isn’t about to stop now.
Jimmie Vaughan’s new album, BABY, PLEASE COME HOME, is a rolling celebration of everything the blues can be. The songs can go up, down, sideways and even off in their own distinctive direction, but one thing is certain, each and every one of them is packed with pure feeling and striking originality. That’s because while the blues is almost as old as America itself, every time a musician lends their soul to living inside these songs, something new comes out. There is a constant reinvention for musicians like Vaughan, because the blues demands it. There can be nothing less than a revelation, because that’s how the music stays alive. It is almost like an alchemy exists, where instruments and voice join together to make a joyful noise. And above all else the blues, in the capable hands of Vaughan and his musical cohorts, is a path to salvation. One that is birthed in the ability of songs to make life on earth a better place to be.
Theo and Brenna Band will be performing live at the Ritz on Tuesday, June 8 at 7:30. Reserved tickets are $25.00. Read more about the band below.
Theo and Brenna MacMillan may have grown up in eastern Kentucky, but they have deep roots in Texas. The sibling duo is bringing their five-piece bluegrass band to the Wellington Ritz Theatre on June 8th, and although this will be their very first time visiting Wellington, the music they play had its source right here in Collingsworth County. Their great-grandfather Ocie Davis moved to Wellington in 1945, where he raised four boys. The eldest, Jesse Ray, graduated from Welling High School in 1953. Theo and Brenna knew Jesse Ray as Pappy and more importantly the grandpa who bought Brenna her first banjo.

Kent was born and raised along the banks of the Red River near Hollis, Oklahoma. Growing up, and throughout his adulthood, Kent helped his father manage cow/calf operations in the area while also taking care of their own herd.
At the beginning of Kent’s cooking career, he spent time with his uncle guiding and feeding hunters deep in the Gila Wilderness of New Mexico. From there he bought a chuck wagon in 1993 and began cooking for ranches and soon expanded into catering. Because of Kent’s growing popularity and his preservation of a historic way of life, the governor of Oklahoma proclaimed Kent the Official Chuck Wagon of Oklahoma in 1996.
Kent has since made numerous television appearances including the Food Network’s highly rated shows, Throwdown! with Bobby Flay, where he beat Flay with his chicken fried steak, Chopped Grill Masters, Chopped Redemption and Cutthroat Kitchen champion He also holds an undefeated record on NBC’s Food Fighters and was featured on CBS Sunday Morning.
Along with slinging hash, Kent has also become pretty good at slinging bull. Kent travels the country to western heritage festivals to tell his tales. Kent’s talent has earned him the Best Cowboy Humorist and Storyteller of the Year by the Academy of Western Artists.
Kent and his wife, Shannon, continue to travel the country feeding hungry folks and those intrigued by their distinct and historic way of life. However, more importantly, Kent carries on the legacy of cooking for cowboys on ranches during spring and fall gatherings, a rare tradition few follow.
Tickets are on Sale now: June 26, 2021 @ 7:00 Reserved seating is $55.00
