Jeep Night at The River

Music billowed through the air September 10 as Jeepers and their guests gathered for "Karaoke Night" at this month's Jeep Night. Singers of all ages showcased their talent with an array of genres.

Pre show consisted of a barbecued dinner provided by Burns Motors. It was a beautiful and serene evening. Although lightning lit up the distant sky it did not put a halt on the fun and festivities.

Jon Corya started off the night with his rendition of Alan Jackson's "Little Bitty", while infant daughter joined him on stage, making it a tough act to follow.

But as the night went on both children and adults went on stage, showcasing their voices to the crowded venue. Lee Ann Womack and Michael Jackson were sung by two incredibly talented kids ready to win the competition for their parents. They were definitely the head turners of the night.

Jesse Pena sang his rendition of Garth Brook's classic "Friends in Low Places" getting the audience hyped. Lou Bar sang several songs as well, keeping him neck and neck with Jon Corya, who also kept the crowd entertained with several performances.

As the night came to an end, the Calaveras were able to select a winner for "Karaoke Night". Jon Corya managed to wow the judges and the crowd and take home the award for his dad 'Big Lew' Corya.

Congratulations to all our Jeepers and participants for being great sports and showing us their artistic sides. All eyes were on you and you made it an unforgettable night.

Join us next month, October 9 at 7pm for our Halloween themed Jeep Night "Jeepers Creepers". Please make note that for next month's Jeep Night we will be meeting at Sofie's 'SS' Saloon located on South 10th St. in McAllen.

Award will be given for best costume and Halloween themed Jeep and its occupants.
