Put your cowboy boots on and join us for a fun night of film and dancing to benefit the Dallas Historical Society at Honky Tonk Heaven- A Film Tribute to Austin’s Broken Spoke Dance Hall featuring Texas Music by Eleven Hundred Springs.
The documentary screening and concert will take place on Saturday, April 14, 2018 at the Hall of State in Fair Park. The history of Texas honky tonks and its music is rich and we’re sure you will enjoy this evening of pure Texas entertainment.
We’ll begin the party in the Margaret and Al Hill Lecture Hall with the documentary Honky Tonk Heaven — The Legend of the Broken Spoke, followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and the colorful Texas couple who have kept Broken Spoke open for more than 50 years.
Then, we will move upstairs to the Great Hall for a book signing of The Broken Spoke- Austin’s Legendary Honky Tonk by Donna Marie Miller. DVDs of the film will also be on hand to purchase.
The great Texas country band Eleven Hundred Springs will provide music for your listening and two-steppin’ pleasure. Broken Spoke inspired food and libations, including Lone Star Beer will be served.
A special opportunity to meet the filmmakers, biographer, Broken Spoke proprietors, and band members is available for VIP ticket holders and sponsors.
We’re honored to have DHS Members Laura and Ken Capps chair the event. They have a very special history with the Broken Spoke as they were engaged on its stage 26 years ago!
All proceeds of the event benefit the Dallas Historical Society. So grab some friends, put on your cowboy boots, and join us for a fun night for a great cause.
