Double R Nothin 8PM
Cactus Operandi 10:30PM
 
 A combination of country, blues, and swing, his songs will have you singing and dancin’ long after the music has stopped. Jeff Roy is joined by Bob Dabbs (mandolin) and Gerry Farris (guitar/vocals) to create a sound and attitude like no other, these three native Texans live to play original Texas music. www.doublernothin.com Since the release of their 2014 EP, Cactus Operandi has been focused on hitting the ground running playing live shows in Texas. Formed by guitarist/songwriter Dan Fassnacht, this Austin collaboration pulls from genres ranging from country, southern rock, blues and bluegrass, and is driven to create a memorable live experience. www.cactusoperandi.com  
Saturday June 4th
 
Cascade Rye 8PM
The Texas KGB 10:30PM
 
The music is roots, not genuine country, not specifically pop/rock. It is its own music, the instrumentation and arrangements conjuring the image of dusty and desolate back roads, driving a convertible in the country with the wind rustling your hair and thoughts of lost love haunting your memories. www.cascaderye.com This IS NOT the Russian KGB hiding behind your sofa or coming to get you from the cold war. Instead you will find the "Texas" KGB in your local club playing the music you love. The Texas KGB (Kelly Green Band) is a quartet of professional musicians that play "Original Americana Music" including Rock, Country, Blues, Alternative and more. Visit their website>>

Nunn, Chris Wall, Danni Leigh, Chaparral) Hale covered a whole lot of highway and played nearly every honkytonk and dancehall in the state, toured Europe, played on Willie Nelson’s Farm Aid Concert, the Black Tie and Boots Ball at the 2004 presidential inauguration, opened shows or shared a bill with Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Steve Earl, Jerry Lee Lewis, Government Mule, Kenny Chesney, Susan Tedeschi, Jack Ingram, Reckless Kelly, Kevin Fowler, Charlie Robison and more. brackenhale.com

Ru Coleman 6PM

Earl Poole Ball 8PM
Carl Hutchens 10:30PM

Ru Coleman is a young, guitar virtuoso from Spicewood, specializing in Americana, blues and roots music. His musical influences include: Albert Collins, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Delbert McClinton, Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and Miles Davis.

Earl Poole Ball could slide through the rest of his life flashing credentials for his 20-year stint as Johnny Cash's right-hand piano man, but that would be overlooking his curriculum vitae. Ball's shot-glass tinkling of the 88s has come to define the term "honky-tonk piano," though a glance at his résumé achieves the same result: Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Jerry Lee Lewis, Rick Nelson, Marty Robbins, and the Flying Burrito Brothers. http://www.earlpooleball.com/ I'm blessed to be able to use a wide variety of great musicians who live and work in Central Texas. Among them bass players Bill Colbert, Lynn Daniel, and Billy D. Favorite drummer Timmy Campbell. Guitarists Richard Jessee, Kenny Grimes, and Todd Barth. Others, Dobro & Keyboards Bennett Spielvogel, pianist Curt Voelkel, and fiddler Howard Kalish.  www.carlhutchens.com
Saturday June 11th
Gene Douglas 6PM
La Tampiquena 8PM
Jesse Stratton Band 10:30

Sounds Like: Chris Whitley, Jeff Buckley, Mark Lanegan, Dwight Yoakum, Neil Young Austin's premiere Tex Mex/ Two Steppin/ Country Funk outfit! Sometimes crispy like a butter-fried biscuit and sorta salty like a Sonora Sunday. Mostly just growly though... Born and raised in the Texas Hill Country, Jesse Stratton plays modern folk music that is chock-full of truth and raw emotion. From his upbeat cover songs to his relevant originals, this multi-talented artist plays his guitar, saxophone, and harmonica at every performance. jessestrattonmusic.com

His tunes have been recorded by others, and one of his songs, “Life was a Whole Lot Better When Roy Rogers was Around,” was aired by The Western Channel as a theme for a special movie month. Award-winning songwriter and author WC Jameson has shared the stage and screen with Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, and many other famous artists. His performances have been described by reviewers as “dynamic” and “powerful,” and one critic wrote, “Listeners never tire of Jameson’s rich baritone, his memorable and captivating lyrics.” wcjameson.com

Thursday June 16th
Wink Keziah 6PM
   
"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.
