The subdudes draw most of their inspiration from the sounds of their native New Orleans, blending blues, gospel, funk and R&B with their own harmony vocals; their sound is also notable for the band’s substitution of a tambourine player for a drummer. The band came together after backing artists such as Joni Mitchell and Roseanne Cash, and released its eponymous debut in 1989. Like the group’s subsequent albums, the subdudes featured a mix of covers and originals.

Jason Boland has a reputation of being a modern day country music outlaw. Both he and his band have been leaders in the Texas and Oklahoma music scene for many years. Though Jason is the primary songwriter and singer, this is no one-man show. Jason Boland & The Stragglers have always been true: that of self-reliance, determined professionalism and bringing the best music possible to fans. While at first glance Jason Boland & The Stragglers’ music may seem easy to stereotype as Texas or Country, intent listening makes it harder to categorize their music easily, revealing the influence of the land and life that got them to where they are. Boland knows he can’t shy away from questions about how to classify his music but simply states, “The Chinese don’t call it Chinese food, it’s just food. I’m just making music.”

Bob Schneider’s fellow Texans as well as his rabid U.S. fan base will testify to his abilities, as he has become the most awarded singer songwriter in Austin’s history, winning over 30 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. Schneider’s musical approach is as eclectic as the diverse musical styles of his former bands — a little bit singer/songwriter, a whole lot of bits and pieces of funk, country, rock and folk.

He co-wrote all songs except “Redemption Song”, a Bob Marley classic. Creager may travel the world, but he never strays far from his small-town South Texas roots and his music encompasses all of him.

Charlie Robison Tickets: $55 | Doors: 7 PM

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. In 2000, Charlie became part of history when the “Unleashed Live” Record was recorded at Gruene Hall. The album is a combined effort with Bruce and good friend Jack Ingram. 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.
