I used to go to high school dances to see BJ & the Triumphs in places like East Bernard and Hillje. Always loved his music. Great memories.

One of my favorite BJ Thomas hits . . .

As happened to many top artists "in the day", the studio execs dressed this tune up a tad..but BJ really didn't need it..This one moved up quickly..Last one I'll put up.. :-)

Same here. My American history teacher was one of the founders of the Triumphs and the lead singer when BJ left. I had his class while BJ was going through a rough phase and everyone was suing each other. I saw him at my 40th high school reunion and he said that they and BJ patched things up and they even performed together again. One of my favorite memories of high school memories is seeing them perform at Riverside Hall in East Bernard (1/2 hour from school) and Fairchild Hall. East Bernard used to get some pretty big names there. Went to see Ernest Tubb there too.

If I were a bettin' man, I'd take that both you and Stranger went to see this Houston area star..that happened to be a buddy of B.J. Thomas. :-) Forgot to mention his band, The Traits

BTW, the Triumph's had real staying power. They retired 4th of July last summer after performing in 8 different decades. BJ Thomas and Don Drachenberg joined the band in 1959.

Here's BJ and the band, 1961, along with Drachenberg.

And the band playing in La Grange in 2020, with Drachenberg still hanging in there. (The cover photo at the top of the page.)

Unfortunately I never got to see Roy live. There was a lot of good music to see back in that day though!

actually I got to see a battle dance at Riverside Hall in East Bernard featuring Roy Head & the Traits on one stage and BJ & the Triumphs on the other. Roy would sing one, then BJ would sing one. The singers contrasted each other but both were great.

When there are too many good ones, you post the full album. I never knew Willie and Asleep At The Wheel did an album together.

Enjoy some old school Texas Swing amongst some old jazzy stuff.

I couldn't sleep the other night and was browsing YouTube when I went down a rabbit hole and found Willie and the Wheel. While I was thoroughly entertained, the album didn't help me get to sleep at all. I think I've played it through about 3 times in the last 48 hours.

One last Memorial Weekend tune..This is an old Jack Greene tune that Ricky Van Shelton hits out of the park with nothin' but his voice, a live mic, a small stage band...and Lorrie, Porter, Larry, and Goober! Note BJ Thomas also in the group..
