Mason's Star Longoria Headlines at the Odeon
Wednesday, July 10, 2013 • Posted July 11, 2013

Mason’s own Star Longoria, will be headlining at the Odeon Theater in Mason Saturday July 27, 2013. Show time is 7:00 p.m. and reservations are $10 per person.

Star, a Mason High School graduate in 2012, finds time to pursue her passion for music while going after a degree in Theater Education at Texas State University in San Marcos.

Starting her music career with Tejano band Romaldo y Grupo Fuerzzo from Ozona, Texas, Star’s interest in Traditional Country Music was piqued by a chance meeting with Darrell McCall. McCall, impressed by the talent he saw in Star helped Star in contacting Justin Trevino to record a demo in his studio. Trevino has since then become her mentor. She quickly developed a passion for country music and recognized the impact it has had on so many people. Within a year she performed at various oprys and dance halls including the Llano Opry, Seguin Opry, Marble Falls Opry, Snyder Swingfest, Wichita Falls Swingfest, and the famous Pearl’s Saloon and Dance Hall at the Stockyards in Fort Worth, Texas.

She not only has had the pleasure of singing and recording duets with Justin, she has also been accompanied by well known, established musicians like Charles Walton, Kaye Tolson, Lynn Massey, Bob Tuttle, and Bode Barker just to name a few. This young artist has been fortunate to perform with the likes of the Great Johnny Bush, Gene Watson, Jake Hooker, Dottsy, Jody Knix, Asleep at the Wheel, and Johnny Lee and the Urban Cowboy Band. She has recorded two demos, one of which included Tejano songs. Her latest CD includes two acoustic covers with Justin Trevino.

Star is looking forward to performing in her hometown of Mason and continuing her music career while keeping Traditional Country Music alive. Make reservations to hear a hometown favorite by calling Kay or Dennis Evans at 325-347-6781 or purchase on line at www.theodeontheater.com . Seats are not reserved until payment is received.
