The Raggedy Cats will be performing an end of summer concert at Marktplatz Kinder Halle Pavilion in Fredericksburg on Saturday, Sept 5. The concert is set for 5:30pm until 7:30 p.m. Admission to the concert is free of charge.
The public is cordially invited to come bring their lawn chairs, a picnic supper, and enjoy some great music from the “good old days.”
This is the second year that the Raggedy Cats have performed free concerts at Marktplatz Kinder Halle. Previously this summer they hosted a free concert on August 15. The concerts have provided the community with an opportunity for some fun free summer entertainment.
The Raggedy Cats is Fredericksburg’s only 40’s Swing and 50’s Rock ‘n Roll band. They have been making a name for themselves for their fabulous music and their entertaining style. Organized nine years ago, the band includes five members: Horst Klauser, band leader and saxophones; Duncan Holmes, keyboard and vocals; Gary Lachmiller, bass guitar and vocals; Hugh Patton, drums; and Beth Lewis, vocalist.
The Raggedy Cats have a huge repertoire of nostalgic romantic ballads from the 1940’s era and fun rock ‘n roll classics from the 1950’s. They play a wide variety of wonderful favorites all the way from quiet easy listening to music which makes people want to get up on their feet and dance.
The Raggedy Cats were the featured band for the May 31, 2009 Pedernales Creative Arts Alliance Concert in the Park in Fredericksburg which drew a crowd of over 600 people. The band is also slated to provide entertainment for the Hill Country Memorial Hospital Gala Brunch at Wildseed Farms outside Fredericksburg on October 17.
