Press release for Dogwood Jamboree Dec. 7th, 2019 at

Palestine High School Auditorium

 Christmas time at the Jamboree is always a special time. All Dogwood Jamboree fans will gather at the Palestine High School Auditorium Saturday night Dec. 7th  at 7 P.M. for “Christmas At The Jamboree”.   “We are all excited about  presenting the annual Christmas show from  the stage at the high school.  The show has been a tremendous success and has served to provide a great venue of family entertainment.” said Dan Manuel producer.  We have been blessed through the previous 15 years with wonderful sponsors and participation from Palestine, and actually all over Texas.     The show will feature The "Hot Shots" of Houston. The  group of three young people all talented musicians, playing banjo’s guitars, fiddles, etc will appear on the stage of the Jamboree that night.   They are internationally known and have performed all over the country. They will be appearing on NBC's "Little Big Shots" in January. The Palestine High School Choir will be presenting songs.  They are making plans to go to New York in the Spring to perform.    Also featured on the show will be  Dan Manuel, Amanda Lane, Tammy Bostick, Rodney Ray, Joe Hancock, Lindsey Cole and band members  W.J. Copeland, Rodney Ray  Mike Kellogg, Ricky Hobbs,  Billy Lane, Joe Hancock, Lindy Likins  and Terry Taylor.  Comedians,  “Jus C. Leroy”, "Kid Roy", “Flo” and the Dogwood Jamboree singers will also be on stage for a wonderful evening of entertainment.   Four  young artists  will compete for “Dogwood Jamboree Talent Search Artist of the Year 2019.”  “For a long time we have wanted to give the young people of the area an opportunity to perform and in some way help them to advance their music ambitions.” said Manuel.  A number of young people auditioned for the show last year and the judges selected those with the highest score to perform on the 2019 venues. Our winner of the Jamboree talent search last year was Bailey Rae Hull who has gone on to bigger venues.    The winners in this year's competition on previous shows this year  will be   competing for the title “Artist of the Year 2019”.  Others who have performed on the stage of the Jamboree have  advanced to bigger venues.  Auditions for the March  2020  show will be held in early March of next year. Those wishing to audition can call   903-724-2556 or 903-723-6291.  Those auditioning for the talent search contest must be eighteen years or younger. There is no entry fee for auditioning.  

The show promises to be a memorable event and one that will attract a lot of folks. “It is amazing how many people come from the metroplex area,  Houston and other parts of the state for the Jamboree.  “Many people travel to Branson, Mo. or Nashville, Tennessee for similar productions, and  from the  continued reviews we have received in numerous country music publications, the quality of the Jamboree and the performers are equal in many respects,” according to Manuel.  “We want to encourage those who  have never attended one of the shows,  to make a special effort to bring the family to the Palestine High School Auditorium and enjoy the music, artists and comedy that fills the auditorium  during the evening. Those competing on the show that night will be selected by a panel of judges and audience vote.  Local artists will take the stage with those from other cities all over the state of Texas.  The show is sponsored by local businesses and is designed as “family entertainment”.  Children often appear on the show as well as adults of varying ages.  “Many of the people who attend are previous attendees.  They love the show and return and bring friends with them,” stated Manuel.  “The annual Christmas show this year is sure to be one of the best performances of the Jamboree and we encourage Palestine and the surrounding area to join us along with visitors from various cities and states. We invite Palestine and the surrounding area to join us for this performance.   The show starts at 7 P.M. and doors open at 6 P.M.  At the intermission door prizes donated by local merchants and businesses will be given away. Advanced tickets for the show can be purchased at Hometown Pharmacy,  Pronto’s Pizza,  Mail and More  or by calling  903-729-7080 or 903-724-2556.
