Wesley's Place is here in La Grange to provide good musicians a venue for live music.

Call or email for reservations (required) and directions
Rio Rancho, NM 87144
Tickets: $15
My first appearance at Rio Rancho had the misfortune of being scheduled on March 15, 2020. That was precisely when the entire country came to a screeching halt due to COVID. The folks that did show up agreed it was a great show. Too bad there were so few people to hear it. Hopefully we'll do better this time :) Arrive at 7:00 for the concert, or bring a dish to share for a potluck dinner at 6:00.
