George Ensle Hosts Jay Boy Adams
George Ensle (pronounced Enslee) is a veteran Texas Singer/Songwriter who began his career in Houston in the 60’s sharing stages with legends Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark and Billy Joe Shaver.  He has since created his own fingerpicking style of Texas Country Folk songs that tell stories of real characters making it in the real world.  He has released 5 albums/CDs in the US and Europe, and is currently recording a Movie–in-Song CD, “Small Town Sundown”, based on his original story, set in small town Texas. www.georgeensle.com

Louie's been an institution at Poodies since 1992. He 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 8 years ago. See Louie and "The Totally Terrific Band " every Tuesday!
With a quick wit and controlled-intensity Bettencourt brings his live shows to life using an expansive catalogue of original crowd-pleasing songs. Where so many artists are content recycling the same old sounds and songs, Bettencourt is one of the rare few able to forge his own. www.eric-bettencourt.com
