The mission of CASA of Central Texas is to advocate for abused and neglected children in the court system by recruiting, training and supporting community volunteers. In 2011, CASA volunteers served more than 300 children in Caldwell, Comal, Guadalupe and Hays Counties.
Tomblin, a San Antonio native, is a bandleader, songwriter, filmmaker and founder of SilverStar Entertainment. In the 80’s, Tomblin founded the legendary Fire Station Recording and Film Studio in San Marcos, where he recorded among others, Stevie Ray Vaughan, the Texas Tornados and Townes Van Zandt. Tomblin was also instrumental in starting the Recording Technology Program at Texas State University in San Marcos.
Tomblin first sang in public at the Grand Ole Opry show in San Antonio on the same bill with Roger Miller, Little Jimmy Dickens and Ray Price. Dynamic Records’ Abe Epstein signed him and his first single, the folk-rock “On My Love,” was a regional hit.
He played nightclubs and shared stages with such friends as Jackie King, Doug Sahm, Augie Meyers and the West Side Horns. It was his old friend Sahm who urged Tomblin to form a band. This encouragement was the genesis for his first band, Lucky 13, which performed at the Havana Jazz Festival in 2002. The band also recorded and endeared itself to dancehall fans in Central Texas and beyond.
The current Lucky Tomblin Band featuring Redd Volkaert, Earl Poole Ball, Bobby Arnold, John X Reed, Sarah Brown and Jon Hahn released its self-titled debut album in 2003, followed by “In a Honky Tonk Mood” and “Red Hot from Blue Rock”. The band’s latest, “Honky Tonk Merry Go Round,” was produced by Lloyd Maines.
Music will begin at 7:00PM. Serving as emcees will be Dr. Gary Hartman, Director of the Center for Texas Music History at Texas State University, and Dallas Wayne, Host of Outlaw Country and Willie’s Roadhouse shows on SIRIUS XM Satellite Radio.
