‘True Willie’ Concert is next weekend at the Lodge


Residents have one week left to purchase tickets for the “True Willie” Willie Nelson Tribute Concert. The concert, sponsored by the Canyon Lake Fine Arts Guild, is Saturday, November 12, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Holiday Bay Room at the Lodge. Organizers say the event is 80 percent sold out, so don’t wait to purchase tickets.

“True Willie,” is said to be “the most authentic Willie Nelson Tribute Band in America.” Critics say Roger Hegyi looks and sounds so much like the legendary country singer, they could have been twins separated at birth.  You can see Roger in the current Volkswagen television commercial as they play “On the Road Again.”

The evening will include music from Willie’s iconic song book, including “On the Road Again,” “Always on My Mind” and “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys.”

VIP tickets with reserved seating are $45. General Admission (and Benefactor) tickets are $25.  Tickets are available online at brownpapertickets.com, 800-838-3006, or at the POA Office ($25 tickets only).

For more than 15 years, the Canyon Lake Fine Arts Guild has been committed to bringing quality musical entertainment to the community at a reasonable price. The Guild offers four concerts at the Lodge per year, and plans to offer a free summer concert at Holiday Harbor in 2017.
