Truly superb honky-tonk band!

On-stage and on record, Austin’s Mike and the Moonpies keep the torch of Texas country burning. Whether it’s a hardcore two-step, freewheeling Western swing, Doug Sahm’s Cosmic American Music, or George Strait’s sweet, burnished ballads, Mike and the Moonpies tap into the traditions of the Lone Star State, yet their music feels nimble and fresh thanks to their deft interplay and sly touch.

The cosmic American love child of Howlin Wolf and Link Wray…

Known as a “musician’s musician,” Alvin Youngblood Hart’s praises have been sung by everyone from Bob Dylan to guitar gods Eric Clapton & Mick Taylor.

Mr. Hart was born in Oakland CA in 1963 to a family of post WWII Mississippi transplants. ,After a couple false starts ,he began to play the guitar, in earnest, in 1977.

“By that time, it had become an obsessive competition among us teenage boys. The guitar was the video game of our day”, Hart says.

After two decades on the road ,Alvin continues to delight audiences worldwide, whether as a solo performer or with the eternally rockin’ Alvin Youngblood Hart’s Muscle Theory…The multi award winner always delivers.

“When I was a 15 year old kid in my room , I would never believe that I would someday play legendary venues like the Hollywood Bowl or Royal Albert Hall. You couldn’t have told me that I’d be in the studio with Taj Mahal, or play onstage with the Allman Bros. Band and members of Thin Lizzy. Some days, it’s a dream job…”

ince his stunning debut, Thunderstorms and Neon Signs in 1995, Wayne “The Train” Hancock has been the undisputed king of Juke Joint Swing – that alchemist’s dream of honky-tonk, western swing, blues, Texas rockabilly and big band. Always an anomaly among his country music peers, Wayne’s uncompromising interpretation of the music he loves is in fact what defines him: steeped in traditional but never “retro;” bare bones but bone shaking; hardcore but with a swing. Like the comfortable crackle of a Wurlitzer 45 jukebox, Wayne is the embodiment of genuine, house rocking, hillbilly boogie.

With the heart of a genuine Texas bluesman, the head (banging) of a Zappa and Lemmy disciple, and boots resting in the dust outside of town at sunrise, Scott H. Biram journeys through the harrowing human condition like no one else. A walk on the Biram side straddles the chasm between sin and redemption and The Bad Testament lands somewhere west of the Old Testament and south of an AA handbook. It’s a record of hard-grinding lost love, blues and deep, dark Americana.

If you haven’t yet heard James and the Ultrasounds, or seen them live…Do yourself a favor and strap in.

Brash, yet thoughtful with unpredictable guitars, soulful organ and pummeling, yet danceable, Memphis-Style rhythm. The four piece rock and roll band is the brainchild of James Godwin, a long-standing face in the Memphis music scene. From his earlier days as a bassist/wingman for Memphis stalwarts Jack Oblivian, as well as Tennessee guitar guru, John Paul Keith.. Godwin & Co. take you on a ride that blends Garage,Soul,Punk,Surf,Country and good ol’ Memphis Rock and Roll. There isn’t anything quite like them in Memphis or anywhere else.

On the heels of successful tours in the U.S. and Europe behind their debut LP “Bad To Be Here” on Memphis’ own Madjack Records, as well as releases on Memphis-centric 7″ label Misspent Records, James and The Ultrasounds find themselves poised as one of the breakout acts from the Southeast in 2018. <BR.
