Alan Haynes 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. Alan is an award-winning blues guitarist. He has been playing professionally since the 1970s and has performed with a variety of Blues legends that include Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny Winter, Albert Collins, Albert King, The Fabulous Thunderbirds with Jimmie Vaughan, Robert Cray, Bonnie Raitt, John Lee Hooker and Otis Rush among others. He now resides in Austin, and plays locally in and around Texas' major cities, especially Houston (where he performs nearly every month).

George DeVore 6PM

Rev. Nathon Quinn Dees 10PM

You can catch him playing acoustic solo shows, and with a rotating cast of all-star musicians as a full band. corbyschaub.com
