Hollywood Comes to Gruene Hall in May

By  | 

This May, Gruene Hall will seem more like a Hollywood film complete with two leading men at the helm. For one weekend you can catch the sounds of Dennis Quaid & The Sharks confirmed for May 13th followed by Kiefer Sutherland on May 14th!

These two Hollywood favorites are not only talented actors but great singers to boot. Both bring the same kind of passion and dedication to their music as the various roles they have played on screen. Dennis Quaid & The Sharks have received rave reviews, and their performances are as fun for the audience as for the band. Kiefer Sutherland’s long anticipated Americana-tinged debut album “Down In A Hole,” is now available here as shared on his YouTube channel.

At 62, Dennis Quaid is a Texas native born in Houston. He’s known for movies such as “Wyatt Earp,” “The Alamo,” “Great Balls of Fire,” and “Flesh and Bone” which was filmed at Gruene Hall. Quaid is the lead singer and rhythm guitarist with The Sharks, and they play many originals as well as classic hits such as “Spill the Wine,” “Gloria,” and “Great Balls of Fire,” shares Quaid has been with his band 16 years and shared in an article with how his then nine-year-old son named his band The Sharks. Their first gig was on Halloween 2000.

Kiefer Sutherland has starred in movie favorites such as “Stand by Me,” “The Lost Boys,” “Young Guns,” “Flatliners,” “A Few Good Men,” and most recently you can watch him on the TV series “Designated Survivor.” He is as commanding with his music as he is on screen. Sutherland’s latest release is “I’ll Do Anything.”  “What I discovered when writing this song was that one gets to a point in life – hopefully, earlier than later – when everything you need is already around you … if you’re lucky,” shared his Facebook page.
