Thursday July 21st
Wink Keziah 6PM
Bobby Boyd 8PM
 
"Hard Times" marks a new direction for Keziah musically. It’s his first solo record without longtime band, Delux Motel, the first project recorded in Los Angeles and perhaps more significantly, Keziah’s exploration of wider avenues in his songwriting, with a conscious shift from a honky-tonk heavy vibe to one that is more balanced between the raucous and the spiritual. Bobby Boyd makes his home right here in Spicewood, Texas. He began his musical career at the age of 12, singing in Tennessee with his brothers in a band called the Boyd Brothers. While in Nashville, Bobby wrote songs recorded by Garth Brooks, Conway Twitty, George Jones, Earl Thomas Conley, Billy Dean, Vern Gosdin and various others in the country field. bobbyboydmusic.com  
Friday July 22nd    

Jeremy Vasquez 8PM
Guy Forsyth Band 9:30PM

 

From Colorado, The 11 Mile Band is the Pikes Peak Blues Community winner of the best band category, with Jeremy Vasquez, on guitar and vocals. It’s been a long and dusty, winding road for Austin singer/songwriter Guy Forsyth that’s led to a recent surge in praise over his dazzling live shows and his rich Americana roots sound. Forsyth (vocals, acoustic, electric, & slide guitar, harmonica, ukulele, singing saw), along with Will Landin (bass/tuba) and Jeff Botta (drums/Cajon), bring a unique mixture of styles such as folk, rock, country, and Tin Pan Alley to create a sound that’s as heterogeneous, raw and compelling as America itself. www.guyforsyth.com
