Local Author Night: John Wooley and Brett Bingham: Twentieth Century Honkey-Tonk

Trinity Woods welcomes authors John Wooley and Brett Bingham for a look at their new book about a Tulsa icon. It was supposed to be a car dealership. Instead, it became one of the most famous American music venues of all time. For the first time ever, all the secrets of the hottest honky-tonk of the 20th Century, the Cain’s Ballroom, are revealed, in the words of the people who made it happen.

Spanning the famed venue’s first 75 years, from 1924 through 1999, Twentieth-Century Honky-Tonk tells it all, from Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys—who became a national sensation with their clear-channel ballroom broadcasts— to U2, the Police, and Van Halen. Books will be available for purchase and signing at a cost of $20, cash or credit card accepted.

John Wooley is a writer, novelist, lecturer, filmmaker, and radio and TV host who specializes in the movies, literature, and music of the 1930s and ‘40s as well as other pop-culture history. Brett Bingham has managed and booked dozens of musical acts, specializing in western Swing. Currently, he’s the business manager for Bob Wills’ Texas Playboys under the direction of Jason Roberts.

We are excited to bring back this holiday favorite from years past. Mark your calendar for Thursday, December 9th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. It will be a night of good old fashioned holiday fun.

“I couldn’t be more excited that we are able to host Christmas in the Woods this year,” said Steve Dickie, CEO. “I love this event. It brings community members, their families and Trinity Woods employees together in a way that truly embodies who we are as a community – good friends and caring neighbors.”

After a four year break due to construction and COVID this year is sure to be a night to remember. Christmas in the Woods is a campus-wide celebration for the whole family. In addition to great food at several venues, horse drawn carriage, entertainment and the beautiful living nativity, there will also be a candy shop, photos with Santa Claus and an elf scavenger hunt!

“Everyone talks about how amazing Christmas at the Manor was and how it was the highlight of the season. I am excited to now be part of Christmas in the Woods,” said Jennifer Rawlings, VP of Wellness. “Trinity Woods

community members, families, friends, and employees are all encouraged to attend this event, that is sure to put us in the holiday spirit!” To purchase tickets visit the Crestwood Concierge or Holliman Center Receptionist – ticket prices are $12 members, $15 guests, and $7 children ages 3-12.

Fall Fright Night

Thursday, October 28 at 7:30 p.m. in the Community Life Center Westervelt Hall

After the treats have been passed out, the trunks have closed, and the children have been sent home all sugared up, we will gather for our annual Fall Fright Night. This year, the wonderful Bill Rowland – or should we say “The Phantom” – will be here to provide live accompaniment for the classic silent film, The Phantom of the Opera, starring Lon Chaney. Enjoy this chilling tale with live music and, of course, there will be some treats for you!

Fall Festival

Fall Festival is back and better than ever! We’ll have a delicious meal in Westervelt Hall of BBQ baby back ribs and BBQ brisket, with baked beans, cole slaw, potato salad, and apple pie for dessert. Then we’ll move outside (weather permitting) to the Community Life Center parking lot for a foot-stomping, relaxed outdoor concert of classic country music from Gypsy Twang. Gypsy Twang is Sarah Barker Huhn on lead vocals and guitar, Steve Huhn on upright bass, John Williams on vocals, guitar, harmonica, and Kurt Nielsen on mandolin.

For our party, they’ll be joined by Western Swing Music Society of the Southwest inductee Lee Roy Whisenhunt on steel guitar for a classic country sound. It will be a great evening to celebrate fall!
