First Night of Clovis Music Festival to Kick Off with Rock ‘n’ Roll Legends

Clovis, New Mexico: The Clovis Music Festival is finally here, and what better way than to start the festivities than with some of the most rockin’ acts around? Thursday, September 10th will be the kick off of the Clovis Music Festival at the Curry County Events Center, and will feature musical acts Jimmy Gilmer and the Fireballs, Johnny Tillotson, Shirley Alston Reeves of the Shirelles, Dave Somerville and the Killer Vees, and Charlie “Sugartime” Phillips!

Hailing from Raton, New Mexico in the late 50’s, the Fireballs were New Mexico’s first Rock and Roll recording band to become internationally know.
