Charlie Robison will be our musical guest at the Forge Grist Mill (formerly the Pavillion) for a night of down home fun.
Charlie Robison at the Forge, Ben Wheeler, TX
Throughout his career, Charlie Robison has forged his own path within the country music world as well as the Lone Star music scene and popular music at large. He grew up in the small scenic town of Bandera in the Texas Hill country — known as “The Cowboy Capital of the World” — where his family has ranched the land for eight generations. Music wasn’t just a staple around the Robison household; from even before he could walk, Charlie would spend Saturday nights with his parents at The Cabaret, the local C&W dancehall in downtown Bandera. But the fare playing in the family home ran the gamut from rock’n’roll to singer-songwriters and much more. So it should come as no surprise that Charlie, his brother Bruce and sister Robyn Ludwyck all enjoy respected and critically acclaimed music careers as singers, songwriters and recording and performing artists.
Charlie is best known for his song “In my Hometown” and has just released a new album “Beautiful Day.”
The Hog Fest will be going on both Friday, Oct 24th and Saturday,Oct 25th. It will end with a bang on Saturday night as Wesley Pruitt opens with his amazing guitar skills and electric smile at 8:00 pm and then Charlie will light up the stage at 10:00. You don’t want to miss this HUGE hometown party, in the coolest town in East Texas!
We had Soul Brothers Moonshine here a while back doing a promo video with none other than the amazingly talented Mr. Wesley Pruitt! Here’s the what happened…
Hopefully, once they are in full swing production the Forge will get first dibs to sell in East Texas! We are thrilled to be the place they picked to make their video, as it is what this town represents.We applaud people like Michael Hale and Wesley Pruitt for their spirit and determination in doing what they love. It is the essence of what created Ben Wheeler.
New Years Day is National Bloody Mary Day! Come build your own with us!
Get Your Shimmy On!
The Forge will be hosting an evening to remember! We will have some great appetizer and dinner specials, including delicious Mediterranean faire. Our favorite import, Cafe Antarsia will be playing their eclectic mix of Gypsy inspired music and we will also be delighted by some bellydancing earlier in the evening. Music and performance starts at 7pm. Champagne Toast at midnight.
