By Kelly Bledsoe
They danced, they sang, they played their
instruments. And all around them the Denton community enjoyed yet another wonderful evening of entertainment as Larry Furr
presents Southern Theater and Event Center hosted the inaugural Denton’s Got Talent benefit fundraiser.
Larry Furr, owner of the events center, said that he frequently holds fundraisers for
different projects and he appreciates what the Town of Denton’s Parks & Recreation board is doing to provide activities
for the youth in the community and decided to organize the event on their behalf.
Thanks to expert sound engineer Eddie Byerly, nineteen amazing acts took the stage, and all sounded wonderful. Performing
for the evening were: Touch of Blue Minus 2, Brandon Sheppard, Sarah Goins, Sydney Loflin, Janice Glover, Isabella Eillis
(absent due to injury), Soggy Bottom Boys, Matt Younts, Faith Oneal, Daniel Arnette, Doris Jones, Lynne Byerly, Rodney Richardson,
The Lanning sisters, Blues Sisters, Frankie Basinger, Gary Nance, Mike Nance, Gary & Mike Nance Tribute to Vets (all from
Furr has a long history of showcasing local talent and the Southern
Theater and Event Center is the culmination of his lifelong dream. His vision was to create a place to showcase the immense
talent we have right here in Davidson County, to provide a family oriented venue where people can relax while at the same
time raising money for worthy causes in the community.
Furr stated, “There
is so much amazing talent right here in Denton…the lineup was almost full after just two days of auditions. In fact
there is enough talent right here in Denton that we can probably do two shows a year.”
Hundreds packed into the theater Sunday evening to enjoy the talents of fellow “Dentonians.”
The talent was exceptional and everyone enjoyed the performances. “Keeping it light and fun was the idea,” Furr
said. “With such diversified talent…all of it good…it would be hard to judge, so we kept it as a non competitive
talent show for a worthy cause, and everyone had a good time.”
Furr’s Southern Theater & Event Center continues to bring together a community of artists, audiences, neighbors,
and friends. The 1st Denton’s Got Talent is just another perfect example of how Denton comes together for a good cause.
With a full schedule of events for the year there are plenty more opportunities for you to come out and experience the exceptional
acoustics and rich entertainment in a family atmosphere right here in Denton.
