w/Denim 50th Anniversary

 —  —

The Saxon Pub, 1320 South Lamar Blvd., Austin

When I first arrived here in Austin, way back in 1974, I was inspired by hearing a band called Denim. Their music immediately spoke to me, rich with wonderful melodies, great harmony singing, and intelligent songwriting. I actually covered a couple of their tunes with my own band. I sort of became the guest that wouldn't leave, and eventually these fine folks accepted me in the group. Now, 50 years after their founding (well, technically 51, because of COVID delays), we're still playing many of those great songs and a bunch of newer ones. (Even one of mine!). Don't miss an opportunity to hear this bunch.

w/ The Lost Austin Band

McGonigal's Mucky Duck, 2425 Norfolk, Houston

When I first came to Austin, it was a couple of years after recording with Jerry Jeff Walker (on LA Freeway, among others), and much to my delight, the Cosmic Cowboy scene was in full swing. My band Partners In Crime followed a bunch of great groups in and out of venues—Willie, Jerry Jeff, Ray Wylie Hubbard, The Lost Gonzo Band, Denim, Plum Nelly.

Imagine players from those bands sitting around reminiscing and playing all of the great songs of that era—that's the Lost Austin Band: Bob Livingston, Craig Hillis, Ernie Gammage, Bill Browder, David Moerbe, and yours truly. Great fun, great music.
