October 20 Niles City

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 Louisville 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 historical 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.

September 12-15 Rob Dixon

ABOUT ROB DIXON:  Rob Dixon moved to Ft Worth, TX from Nashville, TN in October of 1981 after a 2-year stint with the legendary George Jones. He went to work in the house band at Billy Bob’s Texas which had only been open since April of that same year but was well on its way to becoming the top country music club/venue in the country. In the spring of 1982, Rob put together his own band in an Ft. Worth Stockyards club and has had one of the top country dance bands in the DFW area for 36 straight years. Rob and his band (the Lost Cowboy band) still regularly play Billy Bob’s Texas as well as all the other major clubs in the area. Rob built a recording studio in 2000 to record his own music but has also recorded and produced CDs on several local and national acts including Jake Hooker, Curtis Potter, Gary Stewart, and Bob Wills Texas Playboys (remaining members) and other local bands. Rob Dixon and the Lost Cowboy band have opened for hundreds of country music stars over the years such as George Strait (6 times), Merle, Willie, Waylon, Alabama, Hank Jr., Ray Price, Don Williams and ever Ray Charles and Tina Turner. In fact, it would easier to list the acts they haven’t opened for. Rob’s attention to music quality, deep baritone voice, and smooth style make him a favorite everywhere they play. The Lost Cowboy band also features 3 other talented singers which give the band great harmonies and a variety of lead vocals and different styles. Their song list varies from new country to classic country with a little rock and funk thrown in. If you love to dance, you will love Rob Dixon and the Lost Cowboy band.
