Sept 6 Saints Eleven w/Special Guest: Hill Country Jane
Sep 6 @ 9:00 pm

saints eleven

This new Texas Country/Roots music group is made up of some of the finest musicians Texas has to offer. Saints Eleven’s music has been described as “dirty, old school country”. With Jeff Grossman fronting the band on vocals and rythm/lead/lap steel guitar. He is backed up by one of the best rythm sections in todays market with Chris Bradley on drums and Jeffery Mosley on bass. If these names sound familiar, it’s because these guys have been around for a while in other groups. Chris and Jeffery were in the well known Punk/Rockabilly band, The Von Ehricss. Jeff Grossman was the lead guitar player for The Dallahachie Boys. Their debut album, “I’ll be Fine”, should be released sometime in the late Summer of 2012. It will be produced by Texas Country artist John David Kent. Stayed tuned!!

Hill Country Jane

Since 2005, Hill Country Jane has been steadily gaining momentum in the Texas/Red Dirt Music scene. Starting out as an acoustic trio in Austin, and now based in their hometown of Houston, Hill Country Jane has evolved into something a little different than most of what you’ll hear coming out of Southeast Texas these days. After the release of their 2008 debut LP, “The Great Charade”, the buzz about this up and coming band grew louder and louder. Then, in 2012 came some big changes. With the exit of two founding members, HCJ joined forces with a few old friends from local Houston band Last House on the Left. Now, with the right pieces finally in place, the guys went straight to work writing material for the new and improved line-up. In mid-2013, HCJ began production on their latest album with producer Billy Hillman of HillTrax Studios in Huntsville, TX, expected to be released this summer.

You can catch Hill Country Jane bringing their unique brand of “Homegrown Texas Music” to dancehalls, dive bars, beer joints, backyards and festivals…and anywhere else there’s good-timing, gun-totin’, red-blooded, chain smokin’, beer drinkin’ live music lovers…throughout the great state of Texas.

Sept 11 C & W Dance Night w/ Bracken Hale Band
Sep 11 @ 8:00 pm

Bracken Hale Band

This band is so smooth and so great to dance to. If you haven’t come out on a night when they are playing, you need to come this time. You will see that this band is top notch. EVERY SINGLE SONG you can dance to. Bracken plays a few of his own songs and when you hear them, you will want to hear them again. He’s got the look of “Ole Blue Eye”, has great vocals, a stellar band – this band is a must see.

September 12 Folk Family Revival w/Special Guest: Mark Jones and Twenty Paces & The Bigsbys
Sep 12 @ 4:00 pm

Folk Family Revival

Their inimitable sound has been described as Americana-Folk-Rock-Country-Blues music, and yet, it is still developing and changing. Mason spearheads the songwriting, but the relationship and inspiration of every member of the band is evident in the results. While individual players alternate taking the spotlight in certain songs, the performance as a whole would not be what it is without the dedicated collaboration that unites the foursome.

traditional troubadour.
