Artist Lineup Announced for First Annual Boogie Woogie Fest


Newly formed Boogie Woogie Corporation, a Texas non-profit company, supported by Dale Watson and Alan Loudermilk, will be celebrating the influence of Boogie Woogie with a wonderful lineup of artists including Jason D. Williams, Linda Gail Lewis, Wayne Hancock, Katie Shore, Scott Biram and of course Marshall’s own Dale Watson and the Lone Stars.


The first Boogie Woogie Fest is planned to be an outdoor festival-style music event, from noon to dusk, on Saturday and Sunday, September 16 and 17, 2023, and fun for all ages.  The event will be kicked off by a special performance by the students of the Marshall Fine Arts Academy, led by Elena Sleazina.  A gospel performance will begin the Sunday performances.  The event will be held at 511 N. Washington Avenue in Marshall, in the lot behind the Coca Cola building.  Food trucks, non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages, and merchandise from the artists and local vendors will be available for purchase.


The mission of Boogie Woogie Corporation is to celebrate Boogie Woogie music and its influences throughout a wide range of musical styles and genres by way of performances and education.  According to Dale Watson, “our first Boogie Woogie Fest will be a great opportunity to celebrate Boogie Woogie with a day of fun and amazing music right here in Marshall.  The influences of Boogie Woogie can be heard in so much of the music that we hear today, and these artists will bring that to life.”  Alan Loudermilk added, “Marshall and the surrounding areas have played a vital but largely under-appreciated role in the evolution of many of the styles of music that are so popular today throughout the world.  We want people from all over to learn about the rich musical heritage of this area and have a great time in the process.”


Anyone with interest in supporting the Boogie Woogie Fest, including music lovers, vendors and sponsors, can send requests via email –

We would like to thank our growing list of supporters.  You are supporting fun and economic development in Marshall.  Your support for the first annual Boogie Woogie Fest, and the broader historical education mission of Boogie Woogie Corporation, is greatly appreciated!
