2019 Entertainment Line-up

The Buddy System – a band that prides itself in producing custom musical performances that engage audiences from around the world. Imagine the versatility of a DJ but from a LIVE BAND.  This is their second year performing for us because they are a HUGE crowd pleaser.  We are looking forward to the talents that this band brings as a bonus to our event for our guests.  Everyone will be dancing all night long.  https://www.thebuddysystemsa.com

Singer/Songwriter Laura Marie returns to our Midnight event for the third time.  The South Texas native grew up steeped in poetry and music, earning her degree in music education and paying her dues in bands in Central Texas and beyond. There have been awards and accolades since. She won the OurStage Texas Lilith Fair Competition in 2010 and was a Regional Finalist in the Mountain Stage NewSong Contest in 2010 and 2014. Audiences are continually drawn in to Laura Marie’s performances because of her honesty and passion. We are excited to have Laura Marie’s support and her music back at our event for Fiesta Youth.  https://lauramariemusic.com/home
