Youth entertainment: Brackettville boys bond over band

 
 
by Lane Riggs, staff writer
From the stage at rodeos and other gigs comes a unique sound, one full of youthful humor and plenty of excitement that has come together to create an entertaining concert; a sound that five young men have come to mark as their own.
 
The Brackett Young Guns – of Brackettville – is a band consisting of five young men, two sets of brothers. Brandon, Kevynn, and Dillon Bevins are the sons of Gracie and Thomas Blevins, and Walt and Webb Ashley are the sons of Leisha and Tony Ashley. All of the boys were born in San Antonio but have grown up in Brackettville.
 
The band has been making music and performing together since the summer of 2011, and though all the members are busy with school, both at the high school and college levels, the band is making time to pack the summer with concert dates.

Undivided attention: Music is Elizondo’s priority

 
 
by Cheyenne Mueller, staff writer
Raised in Batesville but now living in San Antonio, Darkness Divided guitarist and clean vocalist Sebastian Elizondo was always sure of his career in music.
 
Graduating from Uvalde High School in 2011, he moved to San Antonio to find his musical niche in a bigger city.
 
“My initial plan after graduation was to move to San Antonio and start going to college, but my real reason for doing that was to either start or join a band. Being from Uvalde, a small town, it’s very, very hard to find people who play anything,” he said. “There were so many bands over here that I was sure that I would find something or just find people to befriend and become close with and play music.

“Seussical” is the musical theatre performance being put on by Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District’s summer Fine Arts Academy. The musical, as well as a showcase of visual arts and beginning violins, will be presented today at 6 p.m. in the John H. Harrell Auditorium at the high school campus. Tickets are $5 for adults and free for children 12 and younger.
Linda Adami of San Antonio is the artistic director who’s leading the production of Seussical. Adami headed the Academy’s first production, “Jungle Book” and was brought back this year.
Seussical the Musical follows the adventures (and misfortunes) of a set of unlikely friends: a great big elephant and a teeny tiny Who. As misfits in their own community, the two band together in a display of loyalty and friendship.
