Fall in Love with The Honey Dewdrops


Grand Stafford is thrilled to present the Bluegrass- Americana stylings of The Honey Dewdrops. This husband and wife duo, also known as Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish, express their simplistic take on the beauty of songwriting through their genuine and honest performances. Bluegrass Magazine says

“Their talent is such that it’s quite possible that a new band recording in the year 2020 might cite the Honey Dewdrops as a prime influence.”

The road has been their family and biggest influence for the first three albums released, however, their fourth album Tangled Country was created, for the first time, all in one place. A testament to the power of home, the album reflects three years’ worth of writing and assembling harmonies in just the right places in order to establish a musical maturity that all songwriters aspire to. Get your tickets today and prepare to be captivated.

Grand Stafford’s own Musician in Residence Landon McGee will join the evening line-up as well. Landon’s authentic sound is largely born in his dorm room, demonstrating the emerging talent he has truly refined over the creation of his album, Kite. His easy melodies will provide the perfect opening to complement the Honey Dewdrops Americana vibe.

The show is set for Saturday, January 23rd at 8:00 p.m. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Get your tickets today and make plans today to enjoy a night of great music at Grand Stafford Theater.

We cannot wait to welcome the Honey Dewdrops to the Grand Stafford and we hope you can join us!

Artist Spotlight: Seryn

Seryn is a multi-talented band formed in Denton, Texas. This young band started their career playing shows around Texas but has since been on multiple, very successful nation-wide tours. Following a recent move to Nashville, Seryn is more driven and unified than ever.


Seryn’s first album, “This is Where We Are,” received praise for the bands natural ability to layer guitars, ukulele, accordion, violin, banjo, percussion, and bass. Seryn’s live shows proved that their musical ability extended outside of the studio. Their perfect harmonies and natural musical talent ensured that Seryn was going to be a success.

Since the release of their first album, Seryn has gone through some changes. The band moved to Nashville, changed management, and became an independent band, but the change has only solidified the direction of the band and their hopes for the future. Seryn’s second album, “Shadow Shows,” was released earlier this year and has led them to more fans and more success. Their live shows have continued to improve, and crowds are amazed at this band’s ability to captivate an audience of any size. We are excited to welcome Seryn back to Grand Stafford Theater!

Don’t miss your chance to see this awesome Texas-raised band. Get your tickets to see their show on Thursday, October 15 with Votary here.

The Grand Stafford Welcomes Odd Folks on August 16

One would be hard pressed to find a name fit that fits a band more perfectly than Odd Folks does. Playing off of their name, the band purposefully stays away from fitting into a single genre and uses this fluidity to explore any and every genre they find interesting.


The end result of this sort of freedom results in a band who’s fascinatingly eclectic without any effort. It’s an energy that one can’t help but be drawn to and want to hear more from, and that sentiment is reflected with the following the band has gained over the years.

Odd Folks is a local 5-piece band from College Station, TX that consists of musicians that met at A&M. Self-described as a mix of punk, indie and post-hardcore rock, they pride themselves on being different not only with their unique sound, but with the intimacy with which they conduct their shows.

If you’re looking for a good time out, this is not a band to miss. Their unique sound ensures there is something for everyone, and the personalities of the musicians are such that you are certain to have a good time watching them.

Odd Folks will be playing at the Stafford on August 16, 2015 8:00 pm. Doors open at 7:00 pm. To stay-up-to-date with the band, check them out on Facebook here or preview their music on their bandcamp here.

Local Singer-Songwriter Landon McGee & Friends To Perform At Grand Stafford Theater


Landon McGee may not be a household name yet, but he most certainly will be in the future.

His vocals have an acute precision that seem to melt perfectly into the gorgeous notes humming from his guitar. His lyrics are poetry that can only be appreciated more and more the closer you listen.

Landon McGee, upcoming performer at the Grand Stafford, is a singer-songwriter from Central Texas currently attending Baylor. He is influenced by eclectic indie-folk and his music is reminiscent of folk king John Denver and the experimental indie pioneer Sufjan Stevens.  He recently released his EP entitled “Kite” in March.

Landon is the pioneer in a new adventure we have here at Grand Stafford Theater, which is the brand new musician-in-residency program from AdventGX. Modeled after artist-in-residency program, the purpose of the program is to bring in a musician and focus on networking and business along with building personal and professional development. Musicians are provided film footage, show opportunities, marketing help, and more. Because this is a new venture, details are still being worked out to ensure the most successful program possible. AdventGX hopes to open applications for future musicians-in-residence applicants in the fall. If you are interested in knowing more about the program, please contact us.

Landon will be performing on July 31 at 8:00 pm with doors opening at 7:00 pm. The event will be sponsored by Chameleon Cold-Brew Coffee, an Austin-based coffee company focused on the right blend of high quality, perfectly roasted beans. The first 100 people to arrive at the event with a ticket purchased through the Grand Stafford Theater website ONLY will receive a free bottle of ready-to-drink coffee. Chameleon Cold-Brew Coffee will be served throughout the night along with handcrafted cocktails using the brew.

Clap and AoA – A Night of Latin Blues


Rarely does a group of musicians have the ability to blend two seemingly different genres together to create one unified, harmonious sound.

Even more rare is when those two sounds are blues and Spanish rock.

CLAP and Affection on Apartments, two bands that will be playing at the Grand Stafford on Thursday, July 16 at 8:00 pm, are examples of such rarity. The show will be a unique experience for any listener, not only because the sound is something completely different than anything out on the radio today, but because these bands come together for the soul purpose of performing an art they love before parting their separate ways. The fluidity of the band members means that each performance is unique and you can be sure you’re witnessing something special.

If that wasn’t enough reason to spend your Thursday evening with these talented musicians, all proceeds from tickets sales will be donated to the Brazos Valley Food Bank. You can purchase tickets on the Grand Stafford Website, available now.

Want a taste of what you’ll be in for on July 16? You can check out this clip of CLAP performing here.

Meet the Artist: Beautiful Eulogy

Perfectly cadenced lyrics overlay experimental beats. A catchy, memorable chorus weaves in between the rhythm. The music is infectious. It’s different. It’s unique. It’s Beautiful Eulogy.


Beautiful Eulogy is self-described as “a Portland, Oregon-based group made up of artists Braille, Odd Thomas and Courtland Urbano. The group introduces a distinct and directive sound that’s driven by a desire to worship and glorify the God of the Bible, based in the context of its members’ hip-hop roots and shaped by influences like electronic music, folk songs and old hymns.”

The influence of such different genres has given Beautiful Eulogy the tools to create a sound completely unique from most music out on the radio today. Although the group was only formed in 2011 and debuted their first album in 2012, they’re already making major waves.

Check out Beautiful Eulogy’s unique style here and catch them live at Grand Stafford Theater on June 20 at 8:00 pm. Doors open at 7:00 and tickets are on sale here.

Meet the Artist: Haley Cole


Coming from the San Marcos singer/songwriter music scene, Haley Cole is one to watch.She takes the stage with authority and honesty, and her voice echoes through the rafters like that of a true angel.

Which is fitting, considering she learned to love singing as a child in church, and she speaks of her voice as her gift, her calling, her purpose. Her presence is nearly divine, and once she’s captivated you with her glowing voice, you begin to grasp the rawness of her lyrics. It’s obvious that this girl approaches songwriting with grit and conviction and determination, but at the same time, humility and spontaneity.

She says of her most recent album, “Illusions,” “I think that’s what’s so liberating about the album and why I’m most proud of it – we didn’t restrict ourselves or worry about a right or wrong way of doing things. What mattered was what the songs meant to me and what was the most natural way of playing them.” Authenticity and honesty are core elements of her approach to music, and “Illusions” displays her trust in the organic nature of the creative process.

Haley is both a dreamer, with her eyes set to faraway places, and grounded, fiercely committed to the mission of using music to relate to people through song. Her voice is delicate and powerful, rawness running deep through every note.

Style Notes: Whether your diva idol is Joy Williams or Mariah Carey, you’ve got to get this girl on your radar.

Show: Haley will join fellow Texan and singer/songwriter Mike Ryan at Grand Stafford Theater on Thursday, February 19th, as part of the Texas Music Pickers Singer Songwriter series. Get your tickets today for this soulful, laid back evening of fantastic song.
