Michael Hix Headlines Harris County Precinct 4’s Opry

Versatile performer Michael Hix brings his unique brand of entertainment to the 16th annual Harris County Precinct 4 Opry Friday, Aug. 11 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Humble Civic Center, 8233 Will Clayton Parkway.

Reminiscent of Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Dean Martin, Johnny Carson, Steve Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr., Hix treats audience members to a high-energy experience including pop and rock hits from the past, improv comedy, and dancing.

“Each show is only as good as its audience. The more crowd reaction, the more energy you’re going to get,” he said. “I try to make the audience feel that they are a part of the show. I like to perform in a way that is inviting and relatable.”

Specializing in variety shows, Hix has performed live on national television, public broadcasts, and in feature films. He is also a voice actor, lending his voice to radio commercials, audio books, and animated feature films.

He is a seasoned performer with experience producing, emceeing, and starring in a variety show in Arlington, Texas. Hix began performing as a 7-year-old prodigy leading his church’s music service and then started his own band at the age of 14. Over the next few decades, he refined his skills and involved himself in local competitions. As his interests multiplied, Hix was torn between his love of music and comedic acting. It wasn’t until after high school that he realized he could combine all his talents to create one unique stage show.

“I wanted to be the next Steve Martin or Jim Carrey – maybe even Johnny Carson,” he said. “Throughout elementary, middle, and high school, I would perform in every event that I could from choir, theater, and speech to talent shows and local contests.”

In 2003, Hix’s interest in becoming a triple-threat entertainer drew him to an award-winning variety show formerly known as Johnnie High’s Country Music Revue.

“Working with Johnnie truly helped mold me into the performer that I am today,” he said. “I learned how to adapt to all situations and a variety of age groups. His show challenged me to step out of my comfort zone and allowed me the opportunity to work on my craft on a weekly basis. I also learned a lot about the music business. It truly is a business – and more difficult than most people think.”

The experience paid off, leading Hix to start his own show with The Holla Band in 2013. Now, Hix continues to perform at venues across the country and work on his second album. Eventually, he hopes to create a stage show in Las Vegas and transition into television.
