The Texas Club: 1981 - 1986 (see chart for list of time period when you lived in Baton Rouge) George Jones, Jerry Lee Lewis, etc.
The Texas Club was Baton Rouge's premier Country music venue.
Featuring a spacious
comfortable venue for our guest artists, like George Jones, Jerry Lee Lewis, Jason and the Nashville Scorchers and Merle Haggard, all of whom have jammed our stage.
Check to see what shows you saw from 1981 'till 1986 (see chart below for the entire list of exactly this time period when you lived in Baton Rouge).
And, if your interest in the bands you saw at the Texas Club warrants your writing a book to find out, go ahead.
Designed to accommodate large crowds and events while
maintaining intimate relations, The Texas Club had a unique
combination that allowed them to book hot acts, round women, and keep
our customers isolated, only engaging with scantily clad, line-dancing cowgirl bitches who were yours for a tequila shot and left you wanting more!
We'll See you soon!
