Two Ton Tuesday 2016 Doors: 7:30 PM

Before there was Americana, before there was Texas Country, Two Tons Of Steel front man Kevin Geil and his band rocked a sound that blended the best of musical worlds and pushed the envelope of “Texas” sound with a signature brand of high-energy country meets raw punk. The San Antonio-based band continues to push the line between country and punk with their wildly popular Two Ton Tuesday summer series. If you haven’t caught Two Ton fever yet, grab your dancing shoes and get ready. The band takes the stage at 8:30pm. Come early for Swing Dance Lessons from 6 to 7pm ($8 per person).

Brief Guest Interview featuring Zane Williams

A Gruene Hall tradition, now in its 18th year, where hipsters, oldsters, suits, locals and drifters mix it up to start their weekend rite (pun intended!) This quintessential Friday happy hour celebrates the warmer weather with great beer prices, prize giveaways and the best in Texas tunes broadcast live by KNBT 92.1 FM Radio New Braunfels. There’s even a very special guest interview each week. Some that have stopped by for a chat have included Ray Benson, Steve Earle, Delbert McClinton, Radney Foster, Hayes Carll and Ray Wylie Hubbard. Good times!

Zane Williams (Ray Johnston opens)
Tickets: $12 | Doors: 7 PM

Authenticity. Self-reliance. Hard work. Camaraderie. Gratitude. These are the qualities Zane Williams sings about in his rootsy anthem “Texas Like That”–the title track of his 5th studio album–and so it comes as no surprise that these are also the qualities on which his rapidly-growing career is built. Zane has earned a reputation for releasing albums on which every song is worth listening to over and over, and “Texas Like That” is no exception to that rule. Zane is an anomaly in today’s country music….a modern-day “throwback” who is equal parts bar-room entertainer and introspective poet. What makes Zane Williams stand out is his songs… Like mini movies, they pull you in, tell you a story, make you laugh, and remind you of life’s deepest truths. Zane wrote all eleven songs on his latest album, and while they cover a broad range of sonic and lyrical territory, his unique voice runs through them like a thread that ties them all together.

Curtis Grimes 2015 (Prophets and Outlaws 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.

Kelly & Bruce (Kaitlin Butts opens)
TICKETS: $20 | DOORS: 7 PM

Kelly Willis’ and Bruce Robison’s individual artistic achievements already sum up to impressive totals, but when they unite as an ongoing musical act, the sum of the parts is a musical quantity is far greater than the whole. Willis has reigned as a critically acclaimed roots music singer and Robison has made his mark as both a writer of smash #1 hits like “Wrapped” (George Strait), “Angry All The Time” (Tim McGraw & Faith Hill) and “Travelin’ Soldier” (Dixie Chicks) and an artist in his own right. When playing together occasionally over the years turned into a real collaboration, this couple in life, love and parenthood now unite as a band all its own. It’s more about the promise and thrills of the new than their considerable solo legacies and the laurels they have already earned.

Dirty River Boys (Zach Nytomt opens)
TICKETS: $15 | DOORS: 8 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.

Hayes Carll (Opening Band - TBA)
TICKETS: $25 | DOORS: 7 PM

Hayes Carll is an odd mix. Wildly literate, utterly slackerly, impossibly romantic, absolutely a slave to the music, he is completely committed to the truth and unafraid to skewer pomposity, hypocrisy and smallminded thinking. Carll connects with music lovers across genres lines. Playing rock clubs and honkytonks, Bonnaroo, Stones Fest, SXSW and NXNE, he and his band merge a truculent singer/songwriter take that combines Ray Wylie Hubband’s lean freewheeling squalor with Todd Snider’s brazen Gen Y reality and a healthy dose of love amongst unhealthy people. After releasing Flowers & Liquor in 2002, Carll was voted the Best New Artist of 2002 by The Houston Post. He would go on to release Little Rock on his own Highway 87 label, which became the first self-owned project to the top the Americana charts. Each album expands on his already extreme vintage country, extreme thumping bad road boogie, extreme heartbroken ache – and finds new ways to take on the fate of the nation. Whether it’s the GI protagonist in the propulsive title track of KMAG YOYO, the train wreck objet d’amour of “Drunken Poet’s Dream,” also recorded by Hubbard, the road warrior of both “I Got A Gig” and “Little Rock” or the stoner liberal and the uptight Republican vixen of “Another Like You,” Carll paints vivid pictures of humanity as it really is. Thickheaded. Avaricious. Squalid. Hungry. Angry. Getting by.
