Stoney LaRue 2014 (Austin Meade opens)
TICKETS: $25 | DOORS: 7 PM

Stoney LaRue makes real-life, thinking man’s music. The Texas native-turned-longtime Oklahoma resident has been chasing his own dream down many roads for a long time. Stoney LaRue’s newest album project, Aviator, his debut for eOne Entertainment. Don’t be fooled…LaRue has lit up and burned down a honky-tonk a time or two, becoming a Red Dirt/Texas Music circuit mainstay known for high-energy shows, and that intensity is found on AVIATOR as well, on tracks like “It’s Too Soon”, “Golden Shackles” and an album ending “Studio A JAM” not to be missed. But its tunes like “First One To Know,” the opener “One And Only” and the vivid, memory-filled title track that give AVIATOR it’s thread, trying to find a path amidst loss and life changes, redemption and reinvention.

Delbert McClinton (Seth James opens)
Tickets: $45 | Doors: 8 PM

Born in Lubbock, Texas, Delbert McClinton has been singing R&B, blues, rockabilly, and country for 35 years, starting on the Texas honky-tonk circuit. This soulful, roadhouse-bred musician has enjoyed such distinctions as songwriter, singer, bandleader, and harp player. His name appears in the Book of Lists as one of the top 20 harp players in the world. Delbert won a Grammy in 1991 for his duet with Bonnie Raitt, “Good Man, Good Woman,” and another in 1993 for his duet with Tanya Tucker, entitled “Tell Me About It,”. McClinton’s voice still has the uncanny ability to transport the listener to a dusty Texas barroom that’s soaked in roadhouse blues. Such are his performances at Gruene Hall . . . this Texas musical treasure’s rockin, bluesy style is all his own. And there’s a lot more good rockin’ to come from this enduring, original and ever-soulful artist.

This very special Cinco de Mayo performance with Shawn Sahm (of Texas Tornados) & Friends features Charlie Sexton, Joe King Carrasco, John Jorgenson (of Desert Rose Band, Elton John), Bobby Flores (of Ray Price Band) and Dwayne Verheyden (accordion, Holland) playing all your Texas Tornados and Doug Sahm classics and much more.

From the moment he sat on the knee of his father Doug Sahm on the cover of Rolling Stone in 1968, there was never a question as to what Shawn’s path in life would be: it’s always been on the road. And after his father passed away in 1999, Shawn wasn’t about to slow down. Having spent the better part of the last six years overseeing the estate and various projects, he returned to his first musical love: the amalgam of rock & roll and across-the-border rhythms that define the Tex-Mex sound. “The idea was to take the influences, the sound, the real stuff, what’s in your heart and in your soul,” Shawn enthuses. “That music is a part of me. What makes the band unique is that we are doing music for the love of it. It’s not the ‘in’ thing or the popular thing, it’s something I’ll be doing one way or another for the rest of my life. Even when I was young playing in rock bands, I was always playing with Dad and writing songs.” Shawn Sahm also learned how to put together the right musicians for the right sound.

Cody Canada was the lead singer/songwriter of the Oklahoma-based rock-country band Cross Canadian Ragweed from their inception in 1998 to their dissolution in 2010. In that time they sold over a million albums. Cody Canada has returned to vintage Cross Canadian form, seizing the opportunity to take the lead of his four-piece band, The Departed, with a newly energized inspiration to get back to his roots. The time he spent pursuing new creative paths with The Departed was a blessing, allowing him time to develop a rejuvenated appreciation of Ragweed’s legendary body of work and the connections it made with fans.

Most folks know that story – how Jerry Jeff moved to Austin in the early ’70s and reinvented himself as a Lone Star country-rocker. He became, along with Willie Nelson and Asleep At The Wheel, one of the arbiters of the internationally famous Austin musical community. Since then, he has celebrated the music of peers such as Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt, and served as a fountainhead and inspiration to younger musicians such as Robert Earl Keen, Pat Green, Jack Ingram, Todd Snider and a moderately successful country tunesmith named Garth Brooks.

Three Dog Night (The Marfa Lights open)
TICKETS: $55 | DOORS: 8 PM

Legendary music icons, Three Dog Night, celebrating nearly 5 decades, claims some of the most astonishing statistics in popular music. In the years 1969 through 1974, no other group achieved more top 10 hits, moved more records or sold more concert tickets than Three Dog Night. Three Dog Night hits wind through the fabric of pop culture today, whether on the radio where they are heard day in and day out, in TV commercials or in major motion pictures — songs like “Mama Told Me (Not To Come)”, “Joy to the World”, “Black and White”, “Shambala” and “One” serve to heighten our emotions and crystallize Three Dog Night’s continuing popularity. This Grammy-nominated band is not content resting on its legacy alone. The hit filled concerts are performed for generation-spanning audiences by Danny Hutton (founder/lead vocalist) and Michael Allsup (guitar), Paul Kingery (bass/vocals), Pat Bautz (drums), Howard Laravea (keyboards) and David Morgan (vocals).

Patty Griffin (Opening Band - TBA)
Tickets: $49.50 | Doors: 8 PM

This is a limited seating concert with chairs set up on the dance floor. All seating will be first come, first serve. Patty Griffin is a Grammy-Award winning artist who has achieved great acclaim for her songwriting as well as her powerful voice. Her first two albums, “Living With Ghosts” and “Flaming Red” are considered seminal albums in the singer-songwriter genre, while “Children Running Though” won Best Album and led to her being named Best Artist at the 2007 Americana Music Awards. She won the Grammy for “Downtown Church,” her 2010 gospel album. Her songs have been covered by a myriad of artists including Emmylou Harris, The Dixie Chicks, Joan Baez and Bette Midler. Very much in the traditions of American transcendental writer Ralph Waldo Emerson, and mystical poets like Rumi and Rainer Maria Rilke, Patty Griffin grounds her themes of love and mystery in the experience and rhythms of the everyday, the stuff of life. “Servant Of Love” takes on big ideas, but does so in the vernacular of folk tales, blues cants and jazz gestures. Griffin’s characteristic expressive vocals – equal measures passion and poignancy – and her potent songwriting blur the lines between the personal, the spiritual and the political. These songs move and persuade while they dive deep.

Wade Bowen (Mason Lively opens)
TICKETS: $25 | DOORS: 7 PM

Across five independent albums and a decade-plus of touring, Wade Bowen has amassed a string of regional hits and awards, and also a fan base that is passionate about music. Indeed, in the fourteen years since Bowen launched his career, he’s risen from collegiate greenhorn to the top of the Texas music and Red Dirt circuit. His colleagues and friends Pat Green, Jack Ingram, Eli Young Band and others had made the major-label leap, helping to take a vibrant regional sound to the rest of America. Now Bowen is poised to bring that Red Dirt and independent spirit to country music at large. According to The New York Times, Wade Bowen is “…an earnest and direct singer who wrings feeling from a small vocal gestures and whose songwriting…is graceful, with a twists like small sighs.” Wade Bowen’s new release, Solid Ground, is his first release with Thirty Tigers which blends the many flavors of Texas music into a cohesive and captivating album while paying tribute to his deep Texas roots.

Paul Cauthen and The Texas Gentlemen Tickets: $12 | Doors: 8 PM

Paul Cauthen remembers sitting alone after a weekend-long bender. Wide awake with nothing to lose, he fell on his hands and knees right there, bowed his head, and threw down a divine gauntlet. “I dared Him,” Cauthen says, recalling his desperate challenge to God. Most people don’t plead in the form of a dare. Whether it was by heavenly intervention or sheer force of will, Cauthen emerged with My Gospel, his mesmerizing full-length solo debut. Americana music fans will remember Cauthen’s name from Sons of Fathers, the raucous Texicana group he co-founded in 2011 with bassist David Beck. The band earned glowing praise from Rolling Stone, NPR and others, thanks to two albums that climbed into the Top 10 of the Americana Music Chart. That was three years ago – and the impetus for ending up in that apartment in Austin. Cauthen has since learned to channel his racing mind and rumbling baritone into the blues, gospel and rock-and-roll that fuel My Gospel with gale-force power. Ultimately, Cauthen is on a mission: to make music he can be proud of that also serves a higher purpose.

Sometimes authenticity can sneak up on you. The first sounds you hear on The Texas Gentlemen’s debut studio album, TX Jelly, is that of a band slowly coming together. It’s deceptive, because it creates the impression these Gentlemen might be hesitant about their first record, but any hint of uncertainty vanishes as the core quintet – Beau Bedford, Nik Lee, Daniel Creamer, Matt McDonald and Ryan Ake – tears into the opening track, Habbie Doobie, a low-slung piece of vintage country-funk that slams out of the speakers and announces the Texas Gentlemen as a force to be reckoned with. Bedford assembled The Texas Gentlemen as an all-purpose backing band for an eclectic array of singer-songwriters, including Leon Bridges, Nikki Lane, Jonathan Tyler and Paul Cauthen. In 2016, the Gentlemen were lured out of the studio to the Newport Folk Festival, where they were joined by iconic troubadour Kris Kristofferson, making his first Newport appearance in more than 45 years. Rolling Stone called it one of the festival’s “most exciting sets.”

Flatland Cavalry (Grant Gilbert opens)
Tickets: $15 | Doors: 7 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.

Midland, a trio of friends based in Dripping Springs, Texas, is undeniably refreshing. Made up of singer Mark Wystrach, lead guitarist Jess Carson and bass player Cameron Duddy, Midland is the embodiment of ‘70s California country, all smooth Eagles harmonies and heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics. Their songs are intoxicating, sung with the twang of George Strait. And it’s impossible to resist. Now, after endearing themselves to fans with the hit radio single “Drinkin’ Problem” and a self-titled EP, Midland unveil their full-length debut, On the Rocks. A collection of 13 tracks all written or co-written by Midland – the guys took their name from a Dwight Yoakam song – On the Rocks excels at setting a mood, transporting the listener to another place and time. It’s an album made for wide-open skies, endless deserts and wondering where the road is going to take you next. Whether they intended it or not, Midland is filling a void in country, with songs that run the gamut from lush Urban Cowboy anthems to loose campfire sing-alongs. Putting their own spin on a classic sound, they’re making something old relevant again. With On the Rocks, Midland has captured a sound decades in the making that is just right for today.

Bob Schneider’s fellow Texans as well as his rabid U.S. fanbase will testify to his abilities, as he has become the most awarded singer songwriter in Austin’s history, winning over thirty 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.

The Bacon Brothers (Opening Band - TBA)
Tickets: $45 | Doors: 7 PM

Kevin and Michael Bacon have been writing songs and playing music together since about the same time they may have been fighting over Lincoln Logs or little green Army guys. In fact, the cover of their first album, Forosoco, shows as much; the picture, taken in 1972, shows Kevin and Michael onstage playing congas and guitar, respectively. The look of communication between the two is telling: although the Bacon Brothers have only been a working band since 1995, they too, run decades deep. This has been their hallmark; writing songs that, through bare self-expression and humor, echo the lives of others. It’s an art they’ve refined over three albums and in the 50 to 60 shows they play each year. And with each album and tour, the Bacon Brothers move further away from perceived “don’t tap on the glass” sideshow to a “raise your lighter and sing along” rock band, garnering fan after fan and shattering the obstacle of perception. The band began when Michael received an invitation to play a one-off gig at a local club in their hometown of Philadelphia. It went off well, and Kevin and Michael decided to explore its potential. Sold-out gigs in New York, LA, Nashville, Chicago and San Francisco followed, as well as a high-profile show opening for The Band at Carnegie Hall and appearing alongside the likes of Shania Twain and Wyclef Jean on the TNT Network’s “The Gift of Song” special. In eight years of recording and touring, the band has become a top live draw and continues to build momentum. “When we first started, the people who attended our shows came strictly to see Kevin Bacon, the movie star,” says Michael. “Now people come to see and hear The Bacon Brothers.”

Old 97s (Opening Band - TBA)
TICKETS: $20 | DOORS: 8 PM

To say that rock and roll has been good to the Old 97’s (guitarist/vocalist Miller, bassist/vocalist Murry Hammond, guitarist Ken Bethea, and drummer Philip Peeples) would be an understatement. The band emerged from Dallas twenty years ago at the forefront of a musical movement blending rootsy, country-influenced songwriting with punk rock energy and delivery. The New York Times has described their major label debut, ‘Too Far To Care,’ as “a cornerstone of the ‘alternative country’ movement…[that] leaned more toward the Clash than the Carter Family.” They’ve released a slew of records since then, garnering praise from NPR and Billboard to SPIN and Rolling Stone, who hailed the band as “four Texans raised on the Beatles and Johnny Cash in equal measures, whose shiny melodies, and fatalistic character studies, do their forefathers proud.” The band performed on television from Letterman to Austin City Limits and had their music appear in countless film and TV soundtracks (they appeared as themselves in the Vince Vaughn/Jennifer Aniston movie ‘The Break Up’). Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan told The Hollywood Reporter that he put the band on a continuous loop on his iPod while writing the show’s final scene. ‘Most Messed Up’ finds the Old 97’s at their raucous, boozy best, all swagger and heart. Still shifting gears between country and rock, Old 97’s released Graveyard Whistling in 2017.

Jackie Venson (Opening Band - TBA)
Tickets: $20 | Doors: 7 PM

It is legend that a blistering Jackie Venson guitar solo knocked Pluto straight out of planetary existence. Venson’s “…astonishing mix of raw soul, superb musicianship and laid back grace…” (Austin American Statesman, June 2014) has been compared to the likes of Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse and fellow Austin native Gary Clark, Jr. Originally a classical pianist, Jackie picked up the guitar, shortly after graduating from Berklee College of Music, and made the giant leap from the tradition of classical music to the raw and gritty blues. Enthralled with music since the age of 8, this young singer/songwriter/musician instantly captures your attention with a vibrant musical soul and passionate control of her instruments, that reach far beyond her tender age. As she mindfully blends Blues, Rock, R&B, Soul and more, with her introspective lyrics, the message is clear. When you’re listening to Jackie you hear the “Truth in Music”. Her live performances revisits what makes music so powerful: emotion and passion. She thrives without the flash, instead favoring a clean sound, genuine soul, and meaningful connection with her audience. Music is not only what Venson does – but also defines who she is and reminds her where she wants to be: performing. Having finished her second tour of Europe and the recent declaration of “Jackie Venson Day” (May 21st) in the “Live Music Capital of the World” Austin, TX, there’s no doubt she has every reason to lead the way with the trademark smile that accompanies her magnificent musicianship.

Radney Foster (Opening Band - TBA)
TICKETS: $25 | DOORS: 7 PM

Singer/songwriter/producer Radney Foster has always been revered in the music community as a lyricist and a dry West Texas poet. One look at the folks who have covered his songs (everyone from Hootie and the Blowfish and the Pistoleros to the Dixie Chicks and Guy Clark) and you realize this guy is not easily categorized. As one half of the duo Foster and Lloyd, he recorded three groundbreaking albums, becoming one of the first acts to be played simultaneously on Country and College radio. When the duo split up in the late ‘80s, Foster recorded two solo albums that yielded a handful of hits and a reputation as one of Nashville’s best kept secrets. His songs, like “Nobody Wins” and “A Fine Line” had a lyrical edge and pop sensibilities that often challenged mainstream Country conventions. Throughout his solo career, folks like Emmylou Harris, Hootie and the Blowfish’s Darius Rucker and Dierks Bentley have jumped at the chance to work with him and lend vocal support to his projects – a further testament to Foster’s influence. Foster has served as host for the critically acclaimed CMT Crossroads, and has produced projects by Jack Ingram, Randy Rogers Band, Brandon Rhyder and others.

Two Ton Tuesday 2017 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).
