The Texas Club has been the place to go for live music in Baton Rouge for 40 years and it’s time to celebrate! The club has hosted legendary acts such as Merle Haggard, George Strait, George Jones, the Marshall Tucker Band and many more. After being closed for more than a year due to COVID restrictions, Baton Rouge native, CJ Solar will return home to be the first national touring act to perform at the club’s grand re-opening and 40-year anniversary celebration this Saturday, May 1, 2021.
“I’m excited to get back on the stage at The Texas Club in my hometown and honored to be the band playing their 40th Anniversary show. This is an important place to me, to the city of Baton Rouge and to every touring artist that has, and will, grace that stage.” ~ CJ Solar
The Rogers family opened the venue as the Texas Dance Hall on April 22, 1981. Three months later, Hank Williams, Jr. put the 1000-capacity club on the map, making it a must-stop venue for just about every touring band. In addition to country artists, the club caters to other genres, and has hosted acts like The Allman Brothers, Three Dog Night, Joan Jett, .38 Special, Cheap Trick and others.
The Texas Club is currently run by brothers Mike and Mark Rogers and with COVID restrictions now being lifted, they are excited to get back to the business of live music. The 40th Anniversary celebration on May 1st will feature a VIP pre-party with early entry at 7 PM. Singer/songwriter Abby Leigh, co-host of Off the Record with Abby Leigh & Brittany Rose on 100.7 The Tiger WTGE, will open the show.
