For over 35 years, Joe Ely has been one of the most magical performers to rock the floors at Gruene Hall. He’s been penned a wandering minstrel, gypsy cowboy, visionary song poet, and houserocker on fire, and of course, a Texas legend. Aside from fronting his own band, Joe is also one of the founding members of The Flatlanders (Butch Hancock, Jimmie Gilmore), and member of the Grammy Award winning group, Los Super Seven. Joe Ely’s music crosses the line over several genres of music such as country and rock. His often sold-out crowds at Gruene Hall won’t allow for much dancing at his show, but his music, his songs, and his all-star band will move your feet and rock your soul.

South Austin’s Uncle Lucius is a dream, conjured in the minds of five sonic mercenaries, a clarion call to arms for true believers. It is the voice that shakes you from complacency, grabs you with both hands and implores: Get in the van!!! Like the city that brought them together, UL is a gumbo, with hints of Americana and folk juxtaposed with a slow-cooked roux that is steeped in classic rock n roll and the blues. The resulting flavor is familiar and unique, roots at its most refined, albeit with a gutbucket foundation. After eight years of touring across Texas and to both coasts and back, UL was named 2014’s Best New Band by the Texas Regional Radio Report. The band’s latest album, The Light, was released June 2015.

Los Lobos (The Last Bandoleros open)
Tickets: $35 | Doors: 7 PM

Los Lobos were already East L.A. neighborhood legends, Sunset Strip regulars and a Grammy Award winning band (Best Mexican-American/Tejano Music Performance) by the time they recorded their major label debut How Will The Wolf Survive? in 1984. Perez, the band’s drummer, once called their powerhouse mix of rock, Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B, blues and traditional Spanish and Mexican music “the soundtrack of the barrio.” Three decades, two more Grammys, a worldwide smash single (“La Bamba”) and thousands of rollicking performances across the globe later, Los Lobos is surviving quite well — and still jamming with the same raw intensity as they had when they began in that garage in 1973. Steve Berlin is Los Lobos’ saxophonist, flutist and harmonica player who met the band while still with seminal L.A. rockers The Blasters. He joined the group after performing on and co-producing (with T-Bone Burnett) their breakthrough 1983 EP …And A Time To Dance. Hidalgo, the band’s lead vocalist/guitarist (whose arsenal includes accordion, percussion, bass, keyboards, melodic, drums, violin and banjo) met Perez at Garfield High in East LA and started a garage band. Rosas, who plays guitar and mandolin, had his own group, and Lozano launched a power trio. As Los Lobos celebrated their fourth decade together, they looked back at their roots in acoustic music with 2013’s Disconnected in New York City and in 2015, Los Lobos released the bold and eclectic album Gates of Gold.

Dirty River Boys (Lincoln Durham opens)
TICKETS: $15 | DOORS: 7 PM

Playing upwards of 200 dates a year, giving heartfelt, unrestrained performances, and winning over a loyal audience show-by-show, The Dirty River Boys have notched a number of significant milestones, opening for legend Willie Nelson several times and selling out the famed Gruene Hall. All four members of DRB have a hand in the songwriting, and all four sing as well, while members often switch off instruments during shows. This isn’t just a vehicle for a songwriting front man, with an interchangeable crew of instrumentalists bringing those ideas to life. And so, after a pair of EPs and an album, “Science of Flight,” that served as a tour calling card, the time couldn’t be better for an anthemic, hook-laden declaration of intent, served up to an audience beyond DRB’s Texas diehards. The record is both a cohesive statement and a dizzying testament to the band’s capabilities, as it shifts gears between genres with the skill of a long-haul trucker.

Curtis Grimes 2015 (Holly Tucker opens)
Tickets: $12 | Doors: 8 PM

Already a chart-topping country star on the Texas circuit, Curtis Grimes swings for the fences – and embraces a bigger, broader audience – with his new EP, Bottom of the Fifth. Curtis sticks to his small town roots, taking you through the heart of country music for the 21st century. An impressive career as a collegiate and all-state baseball pitcher took him all around the state, and his growing success as a musician – including a stint on the first season of The Voice, where he competed on Cee Lo Green’s team – gave him the opportunity to expand his reach. He hasn’t forgotten his past – and with a catalog that include Number One singles like “Cowboy Kind” and “Our Side of the Fence,” both of which climbed to the top of the Texas country charts. With one boot planted in traditional country and the other pointing toward something new and progressive, Curtis is turning Bottom of the Fifth into his biggest release to date. Game on.

Charley Pride (Opening Band - TBA)
TICKETS: $79.50 | DOORS: 7 PM

Becoming a trailblazing Country Music superstar was an improbable destiny for Charley Pride, especially considering his humble beginnings as a sharecropper’s son on a cotton farm in Sledge, Mississippi. Charley unofficially started his music career in the late 1950s as a ballplayer with the Negro American League’s Memphis Red Sox singing and playing guitar on the team bus between ballparks. After a tryout with the New York Mets, Pride decided to return to his Montana home via Nashville. In 1966, Chet Atkins took Charley under his wing, nurtured his talent and oversaw a shrewd promotional campaign that successfully navigated the racial challenges of mid-1960s America. Charley’s single “Just Between You and Me” caught fire in 1967, breaking into the Top-10 Country chart and garnering Charley his first Grammy nomination. He quickly became Country Music’s first African-American superstar. Between 1967 and 1987, he amassed no fewer than 52 Top-10 Country hits. In 1971, Charley won two Grammy Awards. Later that year, his #1 crossover hit “Kiss An Angel Good Mornin” sold over a million singles and helped him to win the Country Music Association’s Entertainer of the Year award and the ‘Top Male Vocalist’ awards of 1971 and 1972, and also brought him a ‘Best Male Country Vocal Performance’ Grammy Award in 1972. Some of Charley’s unforgettable hits include “All I Have To Offer You Is Me,” “Is Anybody Goin’ to San Antone,” “Amazing Love,” “Mississippi Cotton Pickin’ Delta Town,” “Burgers and Fries,” “Roll On Mississippi” and “Mountain of Love.” In 1993, Pride was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry and in 1994, Pride was honored by the Academy of Country Music with its prestigious Pioneer Award. In 2000, Pride was honored with an induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

William Clark Green is not one for pulling punches. Where some songwriters trade in subtlety and dancing around blunt truths with clever feints and metaphor, Clark aims his words straight to the point and, when needed, right through the heart. His music is unrelentingly direct and hard-hitting, too, charged with a palpable rock ’n’ roll immediacy that’s as evident in his most intimate solo acoustic performances as it is in the full-tilt band shows that have packed rooms across his native Lone Star State. And with the April 21st release of Ringling Road, his eagerly awaited fourth album, Green is set to make his biggest impact on the booming Texas/Red Dirt music scene – and beyond – yet.

Pat Green (Opening Band - TBA)
Tickets: $35 | Doors: 7 PM

After rising through Texas’ college-town and dancehall scene years ago, Pat Green earned himself major-label support in Nashville and became the poster child of Texas music for a whole generation of fans. His list of achievements includes over 2 million albums sold, three Grammy nominations and a sold out Houston Astrodome. But after releasing six albums in eight years, sending singles like “Wave on Wave” and “Let Me” up the charts, touring with powerhouses like Kenny Chesney and Keith Urban and dealing with accusations of “selling out,” the meat grinder of mainstream stardom proved to be too much. He was spent. Now, after breaking the cycle for a three-year recharge, Green is back in his comfort zone and playing by his own rules again. His is new independent album Home is his first set of originals in several years, and directly speaks to the hardcore fans that have been with him since the beginning. The album’s first single, “Girls From Texas,” is a prime example, and also features the first of Home’s stellar guest appearances. A sugary, grown-up lullaby that explains why Texan girls are just a little bit better than the rest, the track spent 10 weeks on top of the Texas Music chart. Green calls recording the song face-to-face with Lyle Lovett a highlight of the whole project.

Flatland Cavalry (Kaitlin Butts opens)
Tickets: $12 | Doors: 8 PM

At some point between Lubbock and Midland, the land shifts from endless cotton rows and rich farmland into pump jacks and mesquite tree filled pastures. Lubbock roots-country outfit Flatland Cavalry straddles that line between the Panhandle and the badlands of West Texas with their bright, earthy country ballads and gritty folk ramblers. Vocalist and chief songwriter Cleto Cordero’s honest, smooth songwriting revolves around the vernacular world of West Texas that he’s constructed with dusty, sun-soaked character sketches, brooding self-evaluations, and candid love songs that all have the ability to turn into singalong anthems. Formed in the fall of 2012, the quintet was rounded up by Cordero after stretches of acoustic outings around the Panhandle town of Lubbock. With guitarist Reid Dillon, fiddler Laura Jane, bassist Jonathan Saenz, and drummer Jason Albers joining Cordero, Flatland quickly garnered the attention of the masses with the release of the debut EP, Come May, in the spring of 2015. Building off the success of Come May, Cordero and company released their full-length follow-up, Humble Folks, in April 2016.
