Kicking off Mardi Gras 2017 is Country music’s very own, Brandon Rhyder! This talented musician has held four #1 singles on the Texas Music Charts, and that’s only one of his many accomplishments. In the past 15 years, Rhyder has released eight full-length albums while remaining independent and free of a record label. Rhyder states, “I could escape in music. I love words. I love being my own guy. It’s not something that I sought to achieve, but I just see words and chords and songs differently than many.” Come see him on February 17th and be a part of the 106th Annual Mardi Gras Galveston!
