Gruene Hall
New Braunfels, Texas

Doors: 7pm
Opener: Bri Bagwell 8pm
Charlie Robison: 9:30pm

A sixth-generation Texan, Charlie Robison hails from tiny Bandera, Texas. He and his brother, noted musician Bruce Robison, found an interest in music early on, and by the age of 15, Charlie and his brother began playing gigs around Bandera. Later, he made his way to the Austin scene, where he was a part of such bands as Chapparal, Two Hoots and a Holler, and The Millionaire Playboys. In 1995, he released his debut album, Bandera, followed in 1998 by Life of the Party, his first disc on Sony’s Lucky Dog label. In 2000, Charlie became part of history when the “Unleashed Live” Record was recorded at Gruene Hall for Sony’s “Lucky Dog” label. The album is a combined effort with Bruce and good friend Jack Ingram, and culminated with the successful Lucky Dog tour of the US. A second studio effort, Step Right Up, was issued in 2001 followed by his album, Good Times, in 2004 and his self-produced album, Beautiful Day, in 2009.

Shinyribs

Gruene Hall
New Braunfels, Texas

Doors: 8pm
Opener: Chris King 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.

Bob Schneider

Gruene Hall
New Braunfels, Texas

Doors: 8pm
Opener: Paul Cauthen 8pm
Bob Schneider: 9:30pm

Bob Schneider’s fellow Texans as well as his rabid U.S. fanbase will testify to his abilities, as he has become the most awarded singer songwriter in Austin’s history, winning over thirty Austin Music Awards. His scruffy good looks and strong, husky voice provide a good complement to his semi-confessional songwriting. The real beauty of Schneider’s artistic career is about the freedom to constantly write, record and stockpile songs. While he’s already released hundreds of songs with his bands, Schneider estimates there were at least a thousand songs that didn’t fit his band’s concepts.

Delbert McClinton

Gruene Hall
New Braunfels, Texas

Doors: 7pm
Opener: Clay McClinton 9pm
Delbert McClinton: 10:30pm

Born in Lubbock, Texas, Delbert McClinton has been singing R&B, blues, rockabilly, and country for 35 years, starting on the Texas honky-tonk circuit. This soulful, roadhouse-bred musician has enjoyed such distinctions as songwriter, singer, bandleader, and harp player. His name appears in the Book of Lists as one of the top 20 harp players in the world. Delbert won a Grammy in 1991 for his duet with Bonnie Raitt, “Good Man, Good Woman,” and another in 1993 for his duet with Tanya Tucker, entitled “Tell Me About It,”. McClinton’s voice still has the uncanny ability to transport the listener to a dusty Texas barroom that’s soaked in roadhouse blues. Such are his performances at Gruene Hall . . . this Texas musical treasure’s rockin, bluesy style is all his own. And there’s a lot more good rockin’ to come from this enduring, original and ever-soulful artist.

Junior Brown

Gruene Hall
New Braunfels, Texas

Doors: 8pm
Opener: TBA 9pm
Junior Brown: 10:30pm

Combining the soul of country and the spirit of Rock-n-Roll, Junior Brown’s music appeals to country purists, alternative country rebels, rock-n-roll lovers, and to mainstream music lovers. Junior expresses his virtuosity on his distinctly unique instrument, the twin-necked “guit-steel,” which is an efficient combination of a steel guitar and an electric guitar, one which he affectionately calls “Big Red”. In Junior’s hands, the guit-steel is an amazing tool, a means to creating some of the hottest, most heartfelt playing heard in years. Playing everywhere from the Grand Ole Opry to rock showcases on the West Coast, to Gruene Hall, Junior has been heralded by major publications such as Musician, Life, and Guitar Player magazines, to name a few, as a musical genius. “He may very well be one of the few true musical artists we have left – - a player firmly rooted in the past but whose forceful personality and sheer talent make his work stand out as a unique and unmistakable form of self-expression.”

Plus, the man can just get down…

Uncle Lucius (Album Release)

Gruene Hall
New Braunfels, Texas

Doors: 7pm
Opener: TBA 8pm
Uncle Lucius: 9:30pm

South Austin’s Uncle Lucius is a dream, conjured in the minds of five sonic mercenaries, a clarion call to arms for true believers. It is the voice that shakes you from complacency, grabs you with both hands and implores: Get in the van!!! Like the city that brought them together, UL is a gumbo, with hints of Americana and folk juxtaposed with a slow-cooked roux that is steeped in classic rock n roll and the blues. The resulting flavor is familiar and unique, roots at its most refined, albeit with a gutbucket foundation. After eight years of touring across Texas and to both coasts and back, UL was named 2014’s Best New Band by the Texas Regional Radio Report. The band’s new album, The Light, will be released June 9th.

Radney Foster

Gruene Hall
New Braunfels, Texas

Doors: 8pm
Opener: Kimberly Kelly 9pm
Radney Foster (full band): 10:30pm

Singer/songwriter/producer 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 for RCA, becoming one of the first acts to be played simultaneously on Country and College radio. The duo broke through in the late 80’s, a rare time in Nashville’s history when Country radio welcomed other innovative acts like Lyle Lovett, Nanci Griffith, Steve Earle and Dwight Yoakam. Foster and Lloyd’s “Crazy Over You”, went straight to number one, making them the first duo in history to top the charts with their debut single. Meanwhile, their albums were appearing in the Top Ten on the College chart, sharing common musical ground and press accolades with Rank and File, Lone Justice and the Blasters. When the duo split up, 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, The Randy Rogers Band, Brandon Rhyder and others.

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 new 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.
