Thursday October 19th
Tom Ben Lindley 6PM
George DeVore 8PM
 
After moving to Austin and playing in various rock bands, Tom's "Outlaw Country" roots emerged. As luck would have it, a friend of his from his home town of Del Rio “Blondie Calderon” was the long-time band leader and piano player for the legendary Ray Price. Thanks to Blondie, he had the opportunity to “hang out” with country music royalty and worked like crazy trying to get a gig as the opening act. It didn’t come over night, but after years of paying his dues he got the opportunity to open for Ray and Johnny Bush one night which then led to playing Willie Nelson's Picnic.
George DeVore is making a mark with a worldly voice, honest songs, and a stage presence that caused Playboy to name him a "Pop-Powerhouse." DeVore's solid pop-rock songwriting, boosted by textural musicianship and that evocative voice makes CD releases: "Wonderland" and "Four Under Par" pure gold. www.georgedevore.com
