Cole Degges


If you like two-stepping, drinking, listening to live music or meeting new people, The Pearl Event Center is the place for you on Saturday night.

Local musician Cole Degges will perform at The Pearl, 2500 N. Highway 288 in Angleton, from 9 p.m. to midnight Saturday.

Doors open at 8 p.m. and the cover charge is $10, Pearl General Manager Kaitlyn Barrick said. The 18 and older event will feature a cash bar, she said.

The Pearl hosted Degges in July and about 200 people showed up, Barrick said.

“We had a great turnout and wanted to do it again,” she said.

They hope to reach the 310-person capacity of the event center, she said. So far, about half of those tickets have been sold, Barrick said.

Degges is a Lake Jackson native who brings a great crowd and fan base, she said.

“People just always rave on about how great he is, how great of a human he is,” Barrick said.

It’ll be a great opportunity to hang out with good people and dance with some new faces, she said.

The pre-sale tickets can be found on The Pearl’s Facebook and website, she said. Remaining tickets will be sold at the door.

The Pearl is a nice, clean and fun place to listen to music, Degges said. He also plans to bring three or four of “the best musicians that this county has ever seen,” which does not include himself, he said.

Degges said he has noticed there aren’t a whole lot of places to dance anymore. As someone who enjoys playing country music that people can dance to, he said he’s excited about this show.

“Put your boots on, come out and dance all night with us,” Degges said.

Degges has a decorated history with country music. During his time spent in Nashville, he wrote songs for stars including Kenny Chesney and Tracy Byrd. The singer and songwriter released his first album in 2007.

Degges was in Nashville from 1994 until his mother was diagnosed with cancer in 2013. He came home to Lake Jackson, and locals are happy to have him. Based on his last concert, attendees can expect a mix of country, classic rock covers and original songs Saturday, Barrick said.

The Pearl hopes to make Degges a regular, she said.
