May House Bands


May 1-4 ABOUT NILES CITY: Niles City, three miles north of the business center of Fort Worth in central Tarrant County, was incorporated in February 1911. The town was called “the richest little city in the state of Texas” because of the high value of several corporations within its boundaries. It was named in honor of Louville Veranus Niles of Boston, Massachusetts, a large stockholder in the Fort Worth Stock Yards Company; Niles was given credit for the fact that the Swift and Armour packing companies located their plants in the vicinity. The Fort Worth Stockyards, including the Live Stock Exchange Building and the packing plants, all located within the Niles City corporate limits, were valued at over $12 million in 1911.

Because of these historic facts, the band decided on the name to reflect a wealth of musical richness and diversity, and to commemorate an area in Texas steeped in country music tradition.


May 22-25 ABOUT JD MYERS & LEGACY: “Like A Train”, the debut album from one JD Myers isn’t like any of those albums you end up shelving in a matter of weeks. It isn’t comprised of a couple of standout hits with nothing but filler taking up the rest of the space. The debut is ten cuts long with ten potential hits. A veritable classic just waiting to be discovered! You’d have to be crazy to pass this guy off as just another hat act. With six of the ten cuts co-penned by JD and eight tracks featuring his guitar work, this guy’s looking at maintaining his integrity and will no doubt add to it once songs like “If Love Was Like A Train” and “Wishin’ and Waitin'” have their way with the country music public. Don’t miss this train!
