The Mismatch 8PM
Canvas People 10:30PM
 

The Mismatch is a 6 piece from Austin that smoothly combines folksome Americana tunes with a hometown groove, a bit of bluegrass, and just the right amount of grit. Something really special happens when The Mismatch takes the stage, the overall charisma & energy that the band brings while on stage or off is truly infectious and fun to watch. An act that is unforgettable, multi-dimensional, and tells a story you won’t forget.

The Greers 8PM
Austones 10:30PM

 

The Greers are a collection of singer/songwriters originally from the Beaumont/Port Arthur area. Their music is a blend of influences from the area, ranging from Americana, Classic Country, and Blues, with touches of Cajun and Blue-Eyed Soul, all with a Texas texture underneath. Featuring: Douglas Greer, Dick LeMasters, Joe Greer and Barbara Greer.

The Austones are Blues Rockers that combine the feel of Chicago Style Blues with the raw energy of Classic Rock to form their own take on Juke Joint Jumpin' Party Music! Frontman Kevin "K-Dawg" Cheney is a Ball O' Fire when he gets going! Growlin' vocals, gritty harp playin', with the occasional flute tootin' thrown in. Combine that with smooth flowing, driven guitar playing of Sommatone Jimmy Somma, the solid, driving bass of Rusty Keith,and the high energy drumming of Wes Starr and you have all the ingredients for a fantastic experience. 
 
Saturday July 28th  
Emmerson Biggins 8PM
Aaron Einhouse 10PM
 
For the past four years Emmerson Biggins has been one of the hardest working bands in south Texas. Averaging more than 100 dates a year the boys have played dance halls (AND DIVES) from Laredo to Austin and Eagle Pass to Houston. If you believe that Haggard trumps Chesney, if you turn up your radio when Buck comes on and change the channel when Rascal Flatts starts whining…. This is your band. One word: “Real”
Story-teller… Musician… Performer… Aaron has joined the next generation of singer/songwriters influenced by the likes of Robert Earl Keen, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Steve Earle. www.aaroneinhouse.com
