Tejas Brothers

The Levitt Pavilion, in Downtown Arlington, is hosting another weekend of free concerts. This weekend's lineup includes everything from country to R&B. Here's this weekend's lineup.

Friday, May 28, 7 p.m.
Tejas Brothers with Opening Act Carlos Ramos

After forming in the fall of 2006, the Tejas Brothers quickly became the subject of big conversation around the stockyards of Fort Worth. Within a few short years, they had earned the respect as one of the best live acts in Texas. The group’s debut CD, Tejas Brothers, was recognized as the 7th most played album for 2009 by the Americana Music Association. With the release of their 2nd album, Rich Man, Kelly Dearmore of the Dallas Observer said, “The quartet is once again proving itself one of the best bands in the state.” The group released their third CD, Live A Little More, in April of 2013. It features guest appearances from Larry Joe Taylor, Augie Meyers, Deryl Dodd, and was produced by Lloyd Maines. Their latest release, Live and Loose… at last, was recorded at Tommy Alverson’s Family Gathering and released in October of 2014. Roothog Radio says, “If this music doesn’t put a wiggle in your walk, you’d better get your hearing tested.” With influences from all different styles of music, the audience might find it difficult to describe a live show. Most of them say, “I don’t know what to call it. I just know it’s GOOD!” The band calls it “Tex-Mex Honky Tonk.”

Saturday, May 29, 7 p.m.
The Drifters with Opening Artist Kirk Thurmond

“Up on the Roof.” “Under the Boardwalk.” “This Magic Moment.” “There Goes My Baby.” “Dance with Me.” “Spanish Harlem.” “Stand by Me.” The list of hits goes on and on. Since their inception in the 1950s, The Drifters, one of rock ‘n’ roll’s founding vocal groups, has had decades of hits that made them the second most successful recording artists of all time, according to Billboard magazine. Through their historical journey, which has included five legendary lead singers, the group has covered the entire spectrum of rock ‘n’ roll. They were the first musical group to include stringed instruments in R&B music with their hauntingly beautiful song, “There Goes My Baby.” They were the first to sell 2 million records with their pop classic, “Up on the Roof.” Along with fellow inductees, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Bob Dylan and The Supremes, The Drifters were in the first class of legends to be initiated into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame and the first African-American group to be inducted. Their classic tune, “Under the Boardwalk,” is the most played R&B record of all time. Their songs have been penned by such historic songwriters as Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, Carol King, and Phil Spector. They have played at the White House three times, given a benefit concert in Berlin the day the wall fell, performed for the Pope, the Queen of England and Nelson Mandella, and toured the world for the USO in three different war zones from Korea to Iraq. The Drifters celebrated their 50-year catalog with a new recording, The Drifters Salute the Great American Songbook Live.

Sunday, May 30, 7 p.m.
William Beckman with Opening Act Brad Russell Band

William Beckmann was raised on the Mexico border in the town of Del Rio, Texas. Beckmann discovered a passion for writing and performing songs at an early age, seamlessly blending traditional country, Americana, and Latin influences reflective of his small-town heritage. Beckmann’s first album, Outskirts of Town, is a compilation of songs about young love, leaving home, and new beginnings. The seven-song album was released in November 2018 and features “Leaving’ Town” which was produced by his mentor and legendary songwriter Radney Foster (also a Del Rio, TX native). Since the release of that first album, Beckmann has captured the attention of fellow Artists fans, and industry leaders with his engaging performances. In 2019, he secured booking with WME and signed a publishing deal with Warner Chappell. Most recently, Beckmann has signed a management deal with Red Light Management.
