The Ricke Brothers 8PM Paul Logan Band 10:30PM

 
Local Austin Yokel Gordon Ricke (Sir Gordeaux) welcomes his wandering brother Joe Martyn Ricke (don't call me Sir) for an evening of heartbreaking originals, sweet harmonies, sibling rivalry, and probably the best Jackson Browne cover you are ever going to hear this side of Purgatory. Come on out and join us. It's a family thang. Featuring two of the areas premiere instrumentalists, Terry Neilsen on guitar and Danno Harris on percussion. Paul Logan, a seventh-generation Texas, has been performing around the Lone Star State professionally since age 16. He's played honky-tonks, festivals, and parties from Beaumont to Big Bend, San Angelo to Angleton. He has opened for the likes of Jerry Jeff Walker, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Rusty Weir, The Dixie Chicks, Dennis Quaid and the Sharks, Johnny Paycheck, and many more.

Robert Cline Jr 8PM
Chocktaw Wildfire 10:30PM
 
Born into a deep rooted Texan family, Robert Cline Jr. is no stranger to the musical spirit and passion of the Lone Star State. His first guitar was a college graduation present, and he immediately immersed himself in learning to play. Robert began his music career on the road as an oil & gas man. Living in hotel rooms with only a guitar for company, he spent countless hours crafting his sound. While the band's raw intensity has captured the attention of the home-town faithful, the intimacy and intrinsic beauty of Charlie Pierce's songs lie at the core of Choctaw Wildfire's appeal. There is great power in life's simple truths and Choctaw Wildfire proves this with every performance. choctawwildfire.com
