Unleashed Live 2018 (Grant Gilbert opens)
Tickets: $30 | Doors: 7 PM

In 2000, Texas singer/songwriters Jack Ingram, Charlie Robison and Bruce Robison released an equally divided concert album recorded live at Gruene Hall in late 1999. The three constituted a kind of South Central Texas version of the Flatlanders, the occasional trio of Joe Ely, Butch Hancock, and Jimmie Dale Gilmore. Bruce Robison, who lead things off with four songs, came off as the most sensitive and literate of the three. Charlie Robison, who took the lead on the middle four songs, was a crowd pleaser, filling his songs with humor and melodrama. Closing out the show, Jack Ingram rocked hard as the audience hoot ‘n’ hollered and sang along. This was the kind of live album that made you wish you were there, with a beer in your hand and another couple under your belt. Almost twenty years later, the trio will return to the Gruene Hall stage for this very special Unleashed Live Reunion.

Junior Brown (Rachel Laven opens)
TICKETS: $20 | DOORS: 8 PM

Combining the soul of country and the spirit of Rock-n-Roll, Junior Brown’s music appeals to country purists, alternative country rebels, rock-n-roll lovers and to mainstream music lovers. Junior expresses his virtuosity on his distinctly unique instrument, the twin-necked “guit-steel,” which is an efficient combination of a steel guitar and an electric guitar, one which he affectionately calls “Big Red”. In Junior’s hands, the guit-steel is an amazing tool, a means to creating some of the hottest, most heartfelt playing heard in years.

(Johnny Nicholas opens)
TICKETS: $20 | DOORS: 8 PM

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.

Dale Watson Tickets: $10 | DOORS: 7 PM

Dale Watson is a honky tonk hero and country music maverick, a true outlaw carrying on where Waylon Jennings left off. A member of the Austin Music Hall of Fame, he stands alongside Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and George Strait as one of the finest country singers and songwriters from the Lone Star State. Commercial country did not fit the fiercely independent songwriter, so after relocating to Austin, Dale wrote several songs poking fun at the industry side of Nashville. Dale released The Trucking Sessions in 1998. Including 14 original driving songs, the album received high praise and caused critics to compare him to chart-topping writer Red Simpson, who was responsible for some of the most iconic trucking tunes in country music. Just two years after this success, Dale’s fiancee died in a car accident. He turned to drugs and alcohol to cope with her loss and nearly died of an overdose. Dale then checked himself into a mental institution and left a year later, releasing his tribute album to her called Every Song I Write Is For You (2001). Back in Texas and on the road in 2006, Dale has been trucking ever since. Dale released his 20th album called The Sun Sessions. Hailed as “one of the best country albums of the year”, it was recorded at Memphis’ legendary Sun Studios with The Texas Two in the stripped-down style of Johnny Cash’s earliest recordings. He followed this with El Rancho Azul, 14 fresh honky tonk originals about marriage, heartbreak and honkytonkin’, which propelled Dale into the national spotlight with multiple appearances on late-night television and NPR.

Hal Ketchum (Opening Band - TBA)
Tickets: $20 | Doors: 8 PM

Hal Ketchum is a carpenter who builds things made with wood and crafts songs made of silk. Hal moved to the Gruene area from upstate New York where he was born and bred. He stumbled onto Gruene Hall by accident and fell in love with the music scene. He scored his own Sunday afternoon show after recording a four song demo in his basement that contained the first songs that he ever wrote, including “The Preacher and Me”, which still stands strong today. He soon recorded his first album which triggered a quick ticket to fame with his first single, a song called “Small Town Saturday Night”, which hit number one in 1991. A subsequent string of hits soon followed and he was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 1994. After a four year hiatus from the music business due to health and personal problems, Hal is back and sounding better than ever.
