Ray Wylie Hubbard: 9:30pm

Ray Wylie Hubbard is a well-respected Texas Country singer-songwriter who is most known for his songs “Snake Farm” and “Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother” and made famous by Jerry Jeff Walker’s 1973 recording. The renowned Americana hero returns with a lean ’n’ mean follow-up to 2012’s triumphant The Grifter’s Hymnal with his latest album, The Ruffian’s Misfortune. Soon to be followed by his uproarious, hair-raising autobiography, A Life…Well, Lived, The Ruffian’s Misfortune was co-produced by Hubbard and bassist George Reiff and showcases Hubbard’s bluesy slide alongside the twin guitar leads of Gabe Rhodes and Hubbard’s son, Lucas.

Jack Ingram

Friday, July 6, 2018

Doors: 7pm
Opener: Big Joe Walker 8pm
Jack Ingram: 9:30pm

When Jack Ingram won the 2008 Academy of Country Music award for “Best New Male Vocalist,” thousands of people in the audience had to be smiling to themselves about that whole “new” thing. They knew the thirty-something, steel-eyed veteran accepting that trophy on that stage in Vegas had been rocking roadhouses, theaters and stadiums relentlessly since 1997, that he’d been celebrated by critics and fans of hard-core country music for more than a decade, and that as a Texas-born songwriter and performer, he’d been on the short list of next generation artists who could fill the boots of Lone Star legends like Willie and Waylon and the boys. But the award did mean that Ingram, after trials and setbacks that would have buckled other artists, had at last matched the commercial success he’d always wanted with the integrity on which he’d always insisted. So he told the crowd with no small measure of pride and triumph that night that “big dreams and high hopes” can come true. As if to validate and amplify that truth, Ingram remained in the forefront of country music with his album Big Dreams & High Hopes, the seventh studio disc of his career. Inspired by the music of his heroes Jerry Jeff Walker, Willie Nelson, Guy Clark, Ray Wylie Hubbard, and many others, Ingram’s latest album, Midnight Motel, is his first album in seven years and was released in August 2016.

Shinyribs

Saturday, July 7, 2018

Doors: 8pm
Opener: TBA 9pm
Shinyribs: 10:30pm

Shinyribs is the continuation of Kevin Russell’s musical journey that began in Beaumont, TX when, at 14, he found his father’s guitar under his bed, along with a sewing machine, a billy club and a box of comic books. Luckily he chose the guitar. Following his family’s oil boom and bust migratory path he landed in Shreveport, LA where he formed his first band. Picket Line Coyotes was a Husker Du meets Elvis Costello hybrid that lived and died between the “Arklatexabamassippi” borders much like their unfortunate animal namesake. That’s what took him to Austin where The Gourds were born from those Coyote ashes. That storied band of pumpkins came to an end after 18 years of good times and hard travelin’. From that point on Russell, has been riding high on the Shinyribs river of country-soul, swamp-funk and tickle. A Shinyribs show is an exaltation of spirit, truly something not to be missed. It’s a unique musical experience and an original expression of colorful musical heritage.

Opener: Jeff Crosby & The Refugees 8pm

SATURDAY NIGHT:
Doors: 8pm
Opener: Jeff Crosby & The Refugees 9pm
Reckless Kelly: 10:30pm

The band’s co-founders Willy and Cody Braun grew up in the White Cloud Mountains of Idaho. They toured the country as part of their father’s band, Muzzie Braun and the Boys, as children. They performed on The Tonight Show twice while sharing the stages with the likes of Johnny Cash, Glen Campbell and Merle Haggard. Their father taught his sons a professional ethic – integrity, persistence, hard work and professionalism – honed over three generations. The band took its name from the legend of Ned Kelly, the Australian highwayman, and moved to Austin in the autumn of 1996, where they carved a niche of their own. They evolved, adding Jay Nazz, David Abetya and Kansas-bred bassist Joe Miller. They listened, watched and interacted with the creative dynamos of the outlaw country scene – Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, Billy Joe Shaver, Guy Clark and others – and joined them in a redefinition of what contemporary country music had become. Theirs was gritty, hard-edged, uncompromising and convincing. They turned country music real again. Reckless Kelly’s string of critically acclaimed albums– set a standard of reliable excellence and commitment to an instinctive vision of Americana. No band exemplifies the broad genre better. The group’s latest album, Sunset Motel, is, like all its predecessors, distinctive in its own way while true to form. It reflects Reckless Kelly’s attention to craft and continuity. Reckless Kelly is a great band with an apt name. The outlaw’s spirit pervades the ambiance. They are rugged individualists who dedicate themselves to advancing the state of their art.

Along the way, he’s been writing some mighty fine instant classics about family heirlooms, fields of bluebonnets, and late night trips to Mexico. Four albums, hundreds of thousands of road miles, and an ever-expanding fan base later, Creager is soaring toward the top of the Texas Music Scene.

Chris Knight doesn’t like to say much. He won’t chat about his worldview or engage in conversations on his creative approach. For 15 years, 7 acclaimed albums and a hard-nosed career, Knight has always let his music do most of the talking. And on record – as well everywhere across America, from roadhouse taverns to major-city concert halls – his songs have had plenty to say. But with his album Little Victories, Chris Knight has taken the discussion to a whole new level. So after 15 years, 8 albums and a still uncompromised reputation as one of the best singer/songwriters in America, what has Chris Knight learned from it all? “I’ve learned that I’m pretty lucky to do what I do and make a living at it,” he says.

Jackie Venson w/special guest The Peterson Brothers

Doors: 7pm
Opener: The Peterson Brothers 8pm
Jackie Venson: 9:30pm

It is legend that a blistering Jackie Venson guitar solo knocked Pluto straight out of planetary existence. Venson’s “…astonishing mix of raw soul, superb musicianship and laid back grace…” (Austin American Statesman, June 2014) has been compared to the likes of Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse and fellow Austin native Gary Clark, Jr. Originally a classical pianist, Jackie picked up the guitar, shortly after graduating from Berklee College of Music, and made the giant leap from the tradition of classical music to the raw and gritty blues. Enthralled with music since the age of 8, this young singer/songwriter/musician instantly captures your attention with a vibrant musical soul and passionate control of her instruments, that reach far beyond her tender age. As she mindfully blends Blues, Rock, R&B, Soul and more, with her introspective lyrics, the message is clear. When you’re listening to Jackie you hear the “Truth in Music”. Her live performances revisits what makes music so powerful: emotion and passion. She thrives without the flash, instead favoring a clean sound, genuine soul, and meaningful connection with her audience. Music is not only what Venson does – but also defines who she is and reminds her where she wants to be: performing. Having finished her second tour of Europe and the recent declaration of “Jackie Venson Day” (May 21st) in the “Live Music Capital of the World” Austin, TX, there’s no doubt she has every reason to lead the way with the trademark smile that accompanies her magnificent musicianship.

Radney Foster

Friday, August 10, 2018

Doors: 7pm
Opener: TBA 8pm
Radney Foster: 9:30pm

Singer/songwriter/producer Radney Foster has always been revered in the music community as a lyricist and a dry West Texas poet. One look at the folks who have covered his songs (everyone from Hootie and the Blowfish and the Pistoleros to the Dixie Chicks and Guy Clark) and you realize this guy is not easily categorized. As one half of the duo Foster and Lloyd, he recorded three groundbreaking albums, becoming one of the first acts to be played simultaneously on Country and College radio. When the duo split up in the late ‘80s, Foster recorded two solo albums that yielded a handful of hits and a reputation as one of Nashville’s best kept secrets. His songs, like “Nobody Wins” and “A Fine Line” had a lyrical edge and pop sensibilities that often challenged mainstream Country conventions. Throughout his solo career, folks like Emmylou Harris, Hootie and the Blowfish’s Darius Rucker and Dierks Bentley have jumped at the chance to work with him and lend vocal support to his projects – a further testament to Foster’s influence. Foster has served as host for the critically acclaimed CMT Crossroads, and has produced projects by Jack Ingram, Randy Rogers Band, Brandon Rhyder and others.

Dale Watson & His Lone Stars

Saturday, August 11, 2018

Doors: 7pm
Dale Watson & His Lone Stars: 8pm

Dale Watson is a honky tonk hero and country music maverick, a true outlaw carrying on where Waylon Jennings left off. A member of the Austin Music Hall of Fame, he stands alongside Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and George Strait as one of the finest country singers and songwriters from the Lone Star State. Commercial country did not fit the fiercely independent songwriter, so after relocating to Austin, Dale wrote several songs poking fun at the industry side of Nashville. Dale released The Trucking Sessions in 1998. Including 14 original driving songs, the album received high praise and caused critics to compare him to chart-topping writer Red Simpson, who was responsible for some of the most iconic trucking tunes in country music. Just two years after this success, Dale’s fiancee died in a car accident. He turned to drugs and alcohol to cope with her loss and nearly died of an overdose. Dale then checked himself into a mental institution and left a year later, releasing his tribute album to her called Every Song I Write Is For You (2001). Back in Texas and on the road in 2006, Dale has been trucking ever since. Dale released his 20th album called The Sun Sessions. Hailed as “one of the best country albums of the year”, it was recorded at Memphis’ legendary Sun Studios with The Texas Two in the stripped-down style of Johnny Cash’s earliest recordings. He followed this with El Rancho Azul, 14 fresh honky tonk originals about marriage, heartbreak and honkytonkin’, which propelled Dale into the national spotlight with multiple appearances on late-night television and NPR.

Hayes Carll

Friday, August 17, 2018

Doors: 7pm
Opener: TBA 8pm
Hayes Carll: 9:30pm

Failure has always been a favorite topic of Texas troubadour Hayes Carll. Much of the songwriting catalog he’s built up over the last dozen-plus years revolves around dashed dreams, doomed romance and drunken predicaments. Very often, though, he’s leavened the losing with cleverly deployed gallows humor, self-deprecation and yarn spinning, linking his work to his native state’s tradition of wryly winning musical wit, a writing trait he shares with Guy Clark, Robert Earl Keen, Lyle Lovett and even Miranda Lambert. Some of Carll’s most beloved hits — to the extent that there is such a thing in the singer-songwriter and Americana scenes that he straddles — features situational humor and hooky punch lines delivered over shambling, down-home grooves in a fractured twang that plays up a badly sprained ego. Carll’s latest album, Lovers and Leavers, was released in April 2016.

New Orleans native Trombone Shorty began his career as a bandleader at the young age of six, toured internationally at age 12, and spent his teens playing with various brass bands throughout New Orleans and touring worldwide with Lenny Kravitz. He fronts Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, a funk/rock/jazz/hip-hop band. Together they have toured across the U.S., Europe, Australia, Russia, Japan and Brazil. In 2010, Trombone Shorty released his debut album, the Grammy®-nominated “Backatown,” followed by “For True” in 2011, which topped Billboard magazine’s Contemporary Jazz Chart for 12 weeks. His newest album, “Say That to Say This,” was released in 2013 and features funk/jazz elements of New Orleans. Trombone Shorty appeared in several episodes of HBO’s “Treme,” and has recently appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and “Conan.” In 2012, he performed at the White House in honor of Black History Month with music royalty such as B.B. King, Mick Jagger, Jeff Beck and Booker T. Jones. At 2014’s Grammy Awards, he performed alongside Madonna, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Mary Lambert. In 2012, he received the President’s Medal from Tulane University in recognition of his charitable work with the Trombone Shorty Foundation, which donates quality instruments to schools across New Orleans.

Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder

Saturday, October 20, 2018

Doors: 8pm
Opener: TBA 9pm
Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder: 10pm

This is a limited seating concert with chairs set up on the dance floor. All seating will be first come, first serve.

Fourteen-time Grammy Award-winner Ricky Skaggs’ career is easily among the most significant in recent country music history. If Skaggs’ burgeoning trophy case full of awards wasn’t already enough evidence of that fact, consider that legendary guitarist Chet Atkins once credited Skaggs with “single-handedly saving country music.” His life’s path has taken him to various musical genres, from where it all began in bluegrass music, to striking out on new musical journeys, while still leaving his musical roots intact. He became a recording artist in his own right in 1981 when his Epic label debut album Waitin’ for the Sun to Shine topped the country charts and yielded a pair of #1 hits. Overall, his productive stay at Epic Records would result in a total of 12 #1 hits. Additionally, he garnered eight Country Music Association Awards–including the coveted Entertainer of the Year trophy in 1985. Skaggs’ 1997 album Bluegrass Rules! marked a triumphant return to bluegrass—which he’s solidified ever since with a series of Grammy Award winning albums, recorded with his amazing bluegrass band, Kentucky Thunder (8-time winners of the IBMA ‘Instrumental Group of the Year’). Ricky struck his first chords on a mandolin over 50 years ago, and he continues to do his part to lead the recent roots revival in music. Clearly his passion for it puts him in the position to bring his lively, distinctively American form of music out of isolation and into the ears and hearts of audiences across the country and around the world. Ricky Skaggs is always forging ahead with cross-cultural, genre-bending musical ideas and inspirations.
