With over 300 songs to his credit, Jameson draws on a wealth of material from life and sings it from the heart. 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

Tom Ben Lindley 6PM
Forrest Jourdan 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.
Jourdan's songs bear a semblance to those of Guy Clark or Charlie Robison in that they contain a similar sense of Texas seasoning ...  
Friday July 28th    
Gitan 6PM
Damon Curtis 8:30PM
The Derailers 10:30PM
Gitan is an eclectic instrumental guitar duo from Austin. The duo's musical scope encompasses everything from swing and gypsy jazz (Django Reinhardt), to various world music styles (latin jazz, flamenco, celtic).
Damon began singing at an early age and started writing his own lyrics as a teenager. At the age of 20, he learned to play the guitar, and began playing at local bars and venues in his hometown of Moulton, Tx and surrounding areas. Damon just finished his first album. He and the band are very excited about the upcoming release of their first EP. damoncurtis.com In a career that has given rise to more than a decade’s worth of fine-tuned, highly anticipated and wonderfully received music, the Derailers continue to build the relationship between song, listener and dance floor. Their music celebrates the legacies of Buck Owens, George Jones, Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, Charlie Rich and the Beatles, while still being on the edge of today’s country music. derailers.com
