This weekend, head over to the Grand Stafford Theater on November 18 to see performances from Max Stalling and Kelly Mickwee. Doors open at 7pm and the music kicks off an hour later at 8pm.
Stalling is a Texas A&M graduate and no stranger to College Station. After growing up in Carrizo Springs, Stallings headed to Aggieland to pursue a Master’s degree in Food Science. His career brought him to Dallas before he had a career switch and began his life in music.
Once Stalling entered the music scene, there was no getting him out. He is now on his seventh studio album, “Banquet,” which was released in 2015 by Blind Nello Records. “Banquet” is everything country music fans could hope for, showcasing heartfelt lyrics, entrancing vocals, and classic Texas country vibes.
Part of Stalling’s greatest charm is seeing him play live. His band, consisting of Jeff Howe on drums, Jason Steinsultz on bass, and Bryce Clarke on guitar and mandolin, truly play to be heard and seem to enjoy the concert just as much as the fans. Watching Stalling on stage is immersing yourself in what country music should be.
Kelly Mickwee will also be playing on Friday night, bringing her own taste of country to the stage. Mickwee comes from Austin, where she began her music career in duos and groups before going solo. Mickwee is thirty-four but still has the face of a youthful twenty- one year old, and the voice of someone who’s been through life a thousand times. Her acoustic country is a sound that will pull at your heartstrings and make you feel things. This girl is definitely on to something.
Her album, “You Used to Live Here” has seven, beautiful, well- rounded songs and is available on iTunes and Spotify.
Grand Stafford will be packed with talent on Friday night, so be sure to head over before the music starts for a night of dancing, swaying, and strong country vibes. Tickets are $15 online and $18 at the door.
