Special to the PRESS
On Sunday, Nov. 6, the 18th Annual World’s Championship Shrimp Cook-Off in Port Isabel welcomes back the good-time rock-n-roll sounds of “The Agency” for the 11th straight year.
This five-piece band of rock veterans has been performing at the event to consistent rave reviews. The event will be held in the old Wal-Mart parking-lot on Highway. 100 and 48. The music begins at 11 a.m. and continues until 6 p.m.
The five-man group performs mostly in the Valley from the Island to McAllen, but has played in Houston, San Antonio and Waco.
The music ranges from jazz and swing to Motown, Beatles, Beach Boys (with five-part vocal harmonies), James Brown, Steely Dan, Chicago and many others from the late fifties to the mid seventies and beyond. The band is known for its tight vocals, danceable rhythms, and accurate, powerful renditions of great rock hits.
