Crawfish & Show a success!

barrs eating crawfishBy any standards, last Friday’s Crawfish and Jazz Show was a successful event!
Hundreds of pounds of crawfish, shrimp, sausage, potatoes and corn were boiled to perfection by Patrick Partin and Royce Clay, and hungry crowds ate it until it was gone. Then local entertainers, along with former CHS Jazz Band students, rocked the stage at the Colorado City Opera House to rave reviews.
Organizers of the event said the fundraiser for the opera house brought in over $1,400, all of which will be used for maintenance and stage light bulbs for the facility. According to board member Jan Lemons, there are no big renovation projects on the schedule, but monthly maintenance is key to keeping the facility ready for use.
The Colorado City Area Chamber of Commerce and City National Bank supplied the food for the meal, drastically cutting the overhead for the event. Colorado ISD and CNB provided the tables and chairs necessary to seat about 70 people backstage.
An offender work crew from the Wallace/Ware prison complex came into the opera house to make preparations for the setup, which was a big job. Couches and other large furniture had to be moved out of the way, and those putting on the event were grateful for the help.
In order for the entertainers to be able to take the stage, bandstands at the aging facility were rebuilt by TDCJ offenders and installed with the help of Juan Lopez and Domingo DeLaPaz. Lillie Funderburg and Raydene Brown were also instrumental in the event, as they took and sold tickets for all those attending.
Linda Clay secured the evening’s entertainment. She invited former jazz band members and other entertainers to perform on stage, including a 1980 graduate of Colorado High. Everyone attending rocked the night away, complimenting the show at every turn.
Lemons said the opera house board was super pleased with the show, and even more pleased with the big turnout for the event. Because of the good response, entertainers are talking about the possibility of putting on another jazz show in December.
