Please share this information...
  • The Kurt Darren concert in Bandera has come and gone. Based on the feedback that we have received from Kurt and the audience, it was a huge success that everyone enjoyed very much.

    Such an event always requires the efforts of many people to make it work. We have several people to thank for their incredible efforts over the weekend…

    Firstly, Kurt and his wife, Dunay, Jan, Johan and Graham. After arriving in the US on Friday and doing a concert in Conroe on Saturday, they were all tired and jet-lagged. Yet, they shook it off and put up an amazing concert that rocked the house!

    Secondly, the audience! People came from far and wide to attend. Without the audience and the amazing party spirit, it would not have been as much fun. Kurt commented afterwards about how the audience carried him through the performance!

    Then there were all the amazing helpers. Ali Cruickshank, Desiree Olivier, James Cooke, Bernadette Smith, Patricia Du Plessis, Gen McArty, Ana Nortje, Chanie Gouws, Karin Dreyer, Avril Light. These friends did a fantastic job ensuring that there was plenty of warm food available. Without them, it would not have been there!

    Heletia Holden located and helped to coordinate the venue, sound equipment provider, and arranged the accommodation for Kurt and his crew.

    Gerhard Retief of Cowboy Capital RV Park in Bandera sponsored all our plates, silverware and charcoal for both days!

    Chris Fouche was our event photographer for both days! (Despite having a slight mishap with ice on the way from San Angelo, Chris pushed on to Bandera.)

    Anita Heyneke-Felix made and donated Kurt’s cowboy gift.

    After Kurt’s show, Hylton Cruickshank (The Austin Bagpiper) entertained us with his incredible bagpipe skills, including a few well-known South African tunes!

    Jay Calkins of the Silver Spur Guest Ranch graciously sponsored accommodation for Kurt and his crew.

    James McGroarty made the beautiful 11th Street Cowboy Bar available for the event. Thanks also to the staff.

    Thanks to each and everyone of you! Y’all helped to make this a weekend to remember!

    Esme & John
