Fri May 22 - Walt Wilkins and the Mystiqueros
w/ Damon Curtis (BUY ADVANCE TICKETS HERE)
Walt Wilkins has been called a genius, more than once, and a writer the caliber of John Steinbeck and his voice as comfortable as a pair of old blue jeans, and he is, and has, all of that. With The Mystiqueros, Wilkins has created something of a Texas Hill Country super-group that features great singers and songwriters. Onstage and in the studio, Wilkins, Bill Small and drummer Ray Rodriguez make up the core of the band and are joined by a swirling mix of amazingly talented friends, original MQ Marcus Eldridge, Corby Schaub, Brian Langlinais and Jimmy Davis to name a few. The music of The Mystiqueros is highly reminiscent of 70s country rock from Texas and the West Coast and blues and soul that members grew up listening to and features high-quality songwriting and musicianship, rhythm, and vocal arrangements.

Sat May 23 - Bob Appel
With unlikely roots for a country singer, Northern California native Bob Appel was exposed to the neo-traditional country sounds of Alan Jackson, Randy Travis, George Strait, Dwight Yoakam, and Aaron Tippin as a teen. It took years to appreciate the poetic story-telling, simple musical structure, and heartfelt vocal performance evident in their songs, and to understand that there was a common source of inspiration - one steeped in country music traditions from prior generations. It was through the allusions in the lyrics and sound of these singers that Bob found the music of icons like Hank Williams, Faron Young, Ray Price, Patsy Cline, Jim Reeves, George Jones, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Buck Owens, and Wynn Stewart.

Artist Spotlight on South Austin Moonlighters
The South Austin Moonlighters (SAM) play an eclectic mix of songs, from heartfelt soul to “sh*t-kickin’ country,” from greasy New Orleans funk to raucous rock-n-roll. Remarkably it all comes together; creating a magical essence that has earned the band a loyal following, and it insures that no two Moonlighters’ shows are alike. SAM’s collective musical experience (with artists as diverse as Gatemouth Brown, Stephen Bruton, Bo Diddley, Jimmy LaFave, Fastball, Papa Mali, Mike Zito, Tracy Bonham, Joe Ely, John Popper, and Lisa Loeb) allows them to segue from genre, to genre, effortlessly…We guarantee SAM will be your new favorite band.

The Band consist of Lonnie Trevino Jr - Bass & Vocals, Phil Hurley - Guitar & Vocals, Phil Bass - Drums & Vocals, and Chris Beall - Guitar & Vocals.
The Band does a 80/20 mixture of Originals and Covers that fans and newbie fans absolutely love. SAM is what has been called “a true Americana Band” mixing Blues, Soul, Country, and Rock music that many compare to The Resentments, Band of Heathens and Los Lobos.
 
The Bands origin manifested when Lonnie Trevino Jr had the idea of putting together a side group (where they could all “moonlight” on their steady gigs-thus the band’s name), just for the pure joy of playing music. “Lonnie had the audacity and connections to book a series of Tuesday evening happy hour gigs at The Saxon Pub and things took off from there”, explains Phil Hurley. Since then SAM have self-released two CD’s that have garnered “Highest Recommendations” from venue owners and national publications alike for SAM’s “Live At The Saxon Pub” released Nov. 2012, and studio album debut “ Burn & Shine” released Feb. 2014.
The joy of music making, the band shares, is a tangible and contagious part of Moonlighters’ shows, which made it effortless for them to quickly build a solid fan base through their Austin residencies and regional travels. During SXSW 2012, buyers from as far away as Europe were anxious to catch a bit of the South Austin Moonlighters’ “magic” thus resulted in signing with German Lable Blue Rose Records releasing “Burn & Shine” Aug. 1st 2014 in Europe and Scadinavia.

The inspiration of SAM stems from the band members’ mutual respect and admiration for each other’s skill and mastery of their instrument. Musicians are always seeking out others who inspire them and challenge them to improve. This group is an amazing example of what can happen when you put a bunch of talented guys in one room with an emphasis on joy and no egos involved. And now be prepared to witness The JOY that is The South Austin Moonlighters! (website)
