Tuesday February 19th
 
The Troubadillos 5PM
Lara Hope's Gold Hope Duo
with Duane Mark & Co.
7:30PM
 
The Troubadillos have been an institution at Poodies since 1992. Louis Long started the first open mic night, and when he started the Troubadillos with BB Morse, they were the house band for 11 years, until Poodie passed away 9 years ago. See "The Totally Terrific Troubadillos" every Tuesday! Describing her sound, Hope explained to Rockabilly Online “I would say we are a new take on an old sound. It’s been described as ‘pan-americana’ which means we use many areas of early rock and roots music as a creative launchpad. Where it goes from there is anyone’s guess, because while we appreciate old music, we don’t want to write songs that have already been written."

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 Appa Perry, George Rarey and Ty Grimes have formed a blues-based Rock Trio!

Billy Broome Duo 8PM
Jamie Hanks/2 Timin Country 10:30
 
Bonham native Billy Broome fronts the Austin based Americana band Silo Road.  Decidedly country, but with enough Waylon swagger to swing into other avenues from time to time, Broome’s music is throwback in the best possible sense.
Variety Dance Band: Country Western, Rock & Roll, Jazz, and Blues.

Tessy Lou and the Shotgun Stars spent a month of Sundays at the Pony Bar in Pony, Montana. Bryan Paugh fiddle, Mike Singer banjo, Kenny Williams Doghouse Bass, and Tessy Lou Williams sweet vocals and guitar born to sing the songs that tell the story of life lived in the west. "C'mon Boys!" was the rallying cry as the band worked it's magic for all that were lucky enough to be part of real yahoo time in a by God Montana bar. tessylouwilliams.com They've been called "country," "alt-country," and "outlaw country," but the phrase that might best describe the Railbenders is "hard country." This Denver band has been playing unabashed, straight-no-chaser music that pulls no punches since 2000. The Railbenders have opened for country greats Willie Nelson, Dwight Yoakam, Charlie Daniels, and David Allan Coe. As well, they've shared bills with rock legends like ZZ Top, John Fogerty, Peter Frampton, the Doobie Brothers and .38 Special. www.railbenders.com
I'm a 21-year-old songwriter out of Spicewood, Texas. I've been a working musician for well over three years, but I have been on stages and playing for live audiences since the age of 12. There have been many musicians that have passed through my life; all leaving a lasting impression. During the summer of 2016, we traveled to Seattle, Washington to record my debut full-length album (Been Away) under producer Phillip Peterson.

The Troubadillos 5PM
Jimmie Dreams 7:30PM
 
The Troubadillos have been an institution at Poodies since 1992.

See "The Totally Terrific Troubadillos" every Tuesday! A lifelong Austinite, Jimmie Dreams’ life trajectory forever changed when an infant Jimmie escaped from his stroller, only to be taken in by roving Austin Musicians. His first full-sized guitar was purchased from a protoge of Lightnin’ Hopkins. His long-time childhood teacher learned from SRV himself. Today his guitar playing, described as “ingenious” by Offbeat Magazine, has taken him nearly around the world. His recent endeavors have found him venturing out to center stage, under the spotlight, and on to making his name as a guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, and bandleader for Crescent Soul Revue, the Gritones, and a slew of other bands. jimmiedreams.com
