Laguna Vista to host ‘Music by The Bay’

LAGUNA VISTA — The town will hold its Laguna Vista Live: Music by The Bay event today from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Roloff Park.

The Agency is scheduled to perform.

The Agency is a Rio Grande Valley-based five-piece veteran band that has been entertaining people throughout Texas since 1993.

But that’s not all.

There will be 13 vendors on hand selling snacks, baked goods and drinks.

“We’ve secured a Ferris Wheel, the Texas Twister, and Half-Piper carnival rides,” City Manager Rolando Vela said.

These rides are at no charge to the community.

The town will be rescheduling the 1 mile walk/5K run in support of the 5th annual Autism Awareness Walk and Run that the Port Isabel school district is holding that same morning.

Guests are encouraged to bring their own lawn or folding chairs.

There will also be opportunities to dance, Vela said.

The Agency is the band that has been playing music for the past 15 years at the World Championship Shrimp Cook-off in Port Isabel every November, Vela said.

They specialize in authentic Motown classic hits from the 50s, 60s and 70s. They also play a variety of dinner jazz, swing, country, waltzes and more.

“Composed of seasoned musicians who grew up with classic rock, The Agency is well-known for finely crafted vocals, tight, blended sound and danceable arrangements,” Vela said.
