Yippee, it’s almost 2023! Meridian Parks & Recreation ushers in the New Year with its Second Annual Bosque Ball featuring dance and live music from Muther Mirm and the Mustang Family Band Dec. 31
MERIDIAN – In just another week, it will be time to remember the past year with all of its ups and downs, then sing Auld Lang Syne again.
With its Second Annual Bosque Ball, Meridian Parks and Recreation invites everybody to herald in the 2023 New Year and dance the night away with a BYOB New Year’s Eve Boot Scootin’ party featuring live music at the Meridian Civic Center on Dec. 31. The party lifts off at 8 p.m. and ends sometime after midnight, because that’s when the music stops. Expect a festively decorated venue, and an evening with all sorts of party favors, a charcuterie spread, and amazing music by an exceptional band.
“Last year’s event was a great success, as we hoped it would be,” event organizer Jackye Hatley said. “So, we’re doing again this year. What better time for a good party than a New Year’s Eve?”
Once again, the outstanding and talented Muther Mirm and the Mustang Family Band will provide the live music. The band plays anything from Country Western, Rock-n-Roll, Top 40 hits, ballads and even Disco, so depending on your preference, there will be plenty of songs to showcase your dance moves, and sing-a-long as well.
Many may know the band members from other gigs they have played separately in the past. Band leader Miriam Wallace, aka Muther Mirm, has performed professionally as a singer and pianist since the early 1980s, and has performed with a number of popular party bands across north Texas since the early 1990s up to 2017. Her amazing voice can be heard regularly in various area venues and on her Twitch channel.
Morgan Wallace Tremillo, Miriam’s daughter, is an accomplished and talented pianist, singer and vocal coach. The mother-daughter duo harmonizes beautifully together and they thrive on singing songs that can get the audience on the dance floor. They are joined by some very accomplished musicians who all studied music in college: percussionist, vocalist and Miriam’s son Jake Wallace, bass player Austin Crumrine and lead guitarist Scott Morse.
"Last year was a great time of good music and a positive crowd," Miriam Wallace said. "However, the added bonus of making music with both of my children is a blessing beyond compare. I am also hoping for a bigger crowd, but I know the ones who are there will enjoy the music."
It’s going to be lively. It’s going to be fun. It’s going to be a really enjoyable way to end the year with family and friends. Tickets are on sale right now for just $25 per person. But hurry, there has already been a lot of interest thanks to the flyers about town and the amount of tickets is limited to 150. The tickets are available at City Hall or with board members Jackye Hatley – 254-978-2488, Dianne Mobley – 214-207-6606 and Paul Hardcastle – 979-236-3529.
Select the cutest party outfit, shine your boogie boots, bring additional snacks and your own adult beverage of your choosing, and join the Meridian Parks and Recreation in a new, fun, festive New Year’s Bash. We hope to see you there.
