Frank Martin Gilligan Plays the Beehive

Saturday 24th August – The Beehive Bar

Texas singer and songwriter Frank Martin Gilligan performs in the Beehive Bar this Saturday night.

Frank founded Mason Dixie, a Texas vocal group that enjoyed a pretty good run on the charts and on the road in the 1980’s and 90’s. They played with just about everyone who was big in country music at the time and racked up 13 Billboard Chart singles as well. 

Frank Martin Gilligan can be seen and heard all over the state of Texas and beyond these days.
