A mix of Rolling Stones inspired rock'n'roll and the storytelling lyricism of Texas outlaw country, Lonestar Music's Richard Skanse says "with the 10 just-about-perfect tales of hard-traveled and weary-hearted workingman blues... the journeyman songwriter, guitarist and singer delivers his first stone-cold masterpiece." www.erichisaw.com Travis Green is a conductor, a musican, a singer/songwriter who takes you back to the days when music was a familar feeling you tapped your feet to and tuned your heart to like a clock.

WC Clark Birthday Bash 8PM
Adam Johnson & Pay Me's 10:30PM
 
“If the blues is played right,” says Austin, Texas native W.C. Clark, “it makes your soul feel clean.” Indeed, master guitarist/vocalist Clark – known as “The Godfather of Austin Blues” – has been playing the blues right and cleansing souls from the east side of Austin to stages around the world for over 40 years. He's been mentoring countless young blues and soul players in the finer points of the music for almost as long. Blues stars from Stevie Ray and Jimmie Vaughan to Angela Strehli to Lou Ann Barton to Marcia Ball have all perfected their craft under Clark's tutelage. Clark's mix of modern Texas blues, searing guitar and heartfelt, Memphis-style soul vocals have made him a favorite of blues and R&B fans alike.
Listen to WC's blues...
Adam Johnson has been playing live music to audiences all over Texas for the last 8 years. At 23 years old, Johnson has already independently released two albums worth of original material, played on some of the state's most legendary stages and with some it's most revered players. But that's only the beginning for him and his band.

Tom Ben Lindley 6PM
George DeVore 8PM
 
After moving to Austin and playing in various rock bands, Tom's "Outlaw Country" roots emerged. As luck would have it, a friend of his from his home town of Del Rio “Blondie Calderon” was the long-time band leader and piano player for the legendary Ray Price. Thanks to Blondie, he had the opportunity to “hang out” with country music royalty and worked like crazy trying to get a gig as the opening act. It didn’t come over night, but after years of paying his dues he got the opportunity to open for Ray and Johnny Bush one night which then led to playing Willie Nelson's Picnic.
George DeVore is making a mark with a worldly voice, honest songs, and a stage presence that caused Playboy to name him a "Pop-Powerhouse." DeVore's solid pop-rock songwriting, boosted by textural musicianship and that evocative voice makes CD releases: "Wonderland" and "Four Under Par" pure gold. www.georgedevore.com
